Mets minor leaguer gives up 14 runs, immediately retires

Mets minor league pitcher Aaron Laffey began Wednesday night as the starting pitcher for the Triple-A Las Vegas 51s. By the end of the evening, he had given up 14 runs and quit baseball altogether.

Seems appropriate.

Mets reportedly discussing a deal with Adrian Gonzalez

The Mets are involved in “serious discussions” to acquire free agent 1B Adrian Gonzalez, reports Bob Nightengale of USA Today.

The Mets had reached out to Gonzalez following his release from the Braves in December, ESPN’s Buster Olney reported at the time.

Gonzalez was traded from the Dodgers to the Braves in December, but was designated for assignment following the trade.

Gonzalez, who plagued by a back injury last season, hit .242 with three home runs and 30 RBIs in 71 games for the Dodgers in 2017. He spent the last five-plus seasons with the Dodgers after stints with the Rangers, Padres, and Red Sox.

The Mets are trolling not just their own fans, but all fans of organized sport in the history of the goddamned universe.

SNY - Mets reportedly considering reunion with Lucas Duda

The Mets are considering a reunion with free agent 1B Lucas Duda, reports Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic.

Duda, 31, was traded by the Mets to the Rays last July 27 in exchange for RH reliever Drew Smith. He hit .217/.322/.496 with 30 HR in 126 games last season with the Mets and Rays

For his career—which has been spent enitrely with the Mets aside from the last two months of the 2017 season—Duda has hit .242/.340/.457 with 138 HR in eight seasons.

The Mets are reportedly in agreement with OF/1B Jay Bruce on a three-year deal that will pay him $39 million, and have told Bruce to expect to play some first base.

They also have 22-year-old 1B Dominic Smith, who hit .198/.262/.395 in 49 games in 2017 during what was his first taste of the majors.
