Because it looks like the Mets might get snowed out of their entire weekend series against the Twins. FWIW, I kind of like that they don't have a retractable roof, but maybe it wouldn't have been a bad idea for Minneapolis.
I'm seeing this trending in my Facebook feed, and now WFAN (which I haven't "liked" but somehow got into my feed anyway) has asked what YOU think about the above trade proposal. What do the non-WFAN mong types of Amazin Avenue think? I hate the idea of both Wheeler and d'Arnaud being shipped out for Stanton. I could live with one going.
Fascinating in-depth interview w/the Mets Director of Scouting Tommy Tanous about the nuts and bolts of scouting and running a scouting department. No huge trade secrets about the Mets criterion but a must read if you're interested in some of the realities of scouting.
