Talking about the Francisco Lindor trade on @SportsCenter
, how trading for a star-level shortstop could position them as the team to beat in the NL East and how today marks the first clear and abundant evidence that Steve Cohen wants to build the New York Mets into a juggernaut.
Spoke to a scout who sees a lot of NL East. "Pretty obvious it's a great trade for the Mets. Lindor is a superstar, Carrasco is rock-solid in every way. But I think they need Springer to be on the same level as the Braves."
My updated 2021 NL East power rankings:
The Mets think that they're going to contend in the NL East
While the #Nationals farm system may be considered one of the lowest ranked in all of baseball, @jacob_swain3
sees several players who are on the cusp of having a breakout season. This is his Nats #Top50 Prospects for 2021. #NATITUDE #MiLB https://t.co/eYZl1U8Qd3
REPLY: Who's the team to beat in the NL East?
◽️ Atlanta Braves
◽️ Miami Marlins
◽️ Philadelphia Phillies
◽️ New York Mets
◽️ Washington Nationals
Francisco Lindor trade winners and losers: Mets pull off heist, which is bad news for Cleveland and NL East
Dansby is still the best shortstop in the NL East.
With Lindor/Carrasco heading to the Mets, where do you currently see the Nats finishing in the NL East in 2021?
sorry but are we looking at the same team here? Nats need a corner outfielder, a catcher, a 4th starter, another infielder, a left handed reliever, and more depth around that if they even want a have a shot at the NL East https://t.co/fyHkmV8SnB
The Mets are going to mess around and win the NL East if the Braves aren't careful
Right? With the #Braves and #Mets in control of the NL East the #Nats should probably rebuild. 👀 https://t.co/EVXilYT1z3
Check in on NL east
Braves- playoff team full of young stars
Mets- Aquired Francisco Lindor and Carrasco
Nationals- World Series champs 2 years ago, have young stars.
Marlins- Took our future pitcher for a guy we haven’t re signed
My updated NL East Power Rankings:
5. Phillies, Nationals, Mets
Gonna move today's stream to tomorrow morning/afternoon since Twitch is having problems. We will start with all time team builds of the NL east. We will use a team until they lose and then go to the next one. Happy Thursday!
If James McCann is good defensively the Mets are the best team in the NL East
Best how the Phillies definitely have the highest payroll in the NL East and are the worst team
The NL is gonna be so good.
The Dodgers/Padres NL West race.
The Nationals/Atlanta/Mets NL East race.
The, uh...well let's ignore the NL Central.
The Mets will still finish probably 3rd in the NL East.
Be nice if after 3 consecutive nl east titles and everyone counting them out every year the Braves would get some credit but nope here we go again. Laughable honestly. Look at the pitching staff... the Mets are not even close to the Braves
