Meet the Mets
When asked about the likelihood of trading Noah Syndergaard, Jeff Wilpon wouldn’t rule it out.

The interest in Syndergaard is strong, and the San Diego Padres appear to be one team that’s willing to sweeten their offer for his services.
Ken Davidoff says Michael Wilbon’s rant about how wins matter above everything else proves that the stat needs to just go away, especially when it comes to Cy Young voting.
