maybe.

Cano's 190 OPS+ through 9 games is nice, but they likely need both he and Diaz to thrive to make it worthwhile.

7.71 ERA, 9.50 FIP & 2.143 WHIP, but small sample size. What’s the self-immolation count?

Can I offer you a larger sample size of 5.59/4.51/1.38 with 15 HR allowed over 58 IP last year?

Kelenic is highly ranked but to this point, the trade has produced zero baseball value for the Ms.

Cano's 190 OPS+ through 9 games is nice, but they likely need both he and Diaz to thrive to make it worthwhile.

JP Crawford's 168 OPS+ through 10 games is nice too.

Whereas the Mets have received .7 WAR from Cano and -.6 from Diaz. For around $26 million so far, with about $80 million left to go on Cano.

You don't need a closer if you're never in the lead at the end of the game.
