I'm not going to lie, I am not up on my Mets game yet. So, I might just be doing some half assed articles for the next few days unless there is something big. Wait..aren't all your articles half assed? Yeah, sorta....
Hey...Rumor has it Conforto was almost, sort of, kinda traded. Another rumor is I sorta, kinda, almost, didn't by a jersey.
According to Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports, the Mets and Tigers talked about a one-for-one deal of Conforto for veteran outfielder J.D. Martinez before the Mets re-upped Yoenis Cespedes to serve as the team's right-handed hitting slugger.
The Mets seriously discussed a straight-up swap of Michael Conforto for J.D. Martinez before re-signing Cespedes but ultimately decided that one year of Martinez for Conforto wasn't enough. For a while, though, it was a real consideration.
