TRADE - LHP = Jerry Blevins


Mets Acquire Jerry Blevins

The Mets announced that they’ve acquired left-hander Jerry Blevins from the Nationals in exchange for outfielder Matt den Dekker

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.
