Well, I guess this is trading from a position of strength for a position of weakness. I long thought Matt den Dekker good enough to be our version of Endy but Blevins is nasty against lefties (.594 OPS for his career and a better than 5:1 K:BB ratio for his career) and fills a hole desperately in need of filling. This is a 2015 move.
I am sorry to see Matt go, having long pulled for him, and wish him well - just not so well that he screws up our Mets as a National! He deserves a chance to play, and hopefully he'll get reasonable playing time with the Nationals.
It's amazing...Matt den Dekker could have been Juan Lagares but one broken arm changed all that. I do hope he becomes a good player but not for the Nationals.
One Day.. TWO Trades for MLB Players....am I awake?
