So the Mets want to move Edwi Diaz.

I would freaking love to grab him, fix him, and shove it down the Mets throats the next two years

i'm appalled that they are looking to dump more from the system to add pitching.  This should be a firesale of the vets to restock.  Anyone who is an FA next  year should be available.  I don't think there's a market for Doolittle, but him, Suzuki,

The Mets seem to lack a plan.

Kieboom for Lynn?

Jesus, no.  Not even if you believe in next year.

I apologize.  I referred to him by the wrong name.  Clearly he is a Stud and not a Su.  As for his Zukiness, that is one to ponder.

We have him through the end of the 2022 season. No need yet.

exactly, there's a chance the team has a minuscule amount of leverage that might convince him to sign- much better to wait until that goes away

Not sure Mark wants his outgoing GM to be making moves mortgaging the future for *checks notes* Lance Lynn.

It's fair to say that Rizzo and the Nats were out-maneuvered at this deadline.  Philliies pick up 3 relievers in a bit over a week, Mets bring in Todd Frazier, Miguel Castro, and Robinson Chirinos to address gaps, and the Marlins get the best player available in Starling Marte.  Does anyone think our chance at the post-season  is better now than it was a day ago?  Brock Holt was the only move.  If you think the Nats are in worse position than they were going into the deadline, then doesn't it make even less sense to have not moved expiring contracts?  Most of the talent at the deadline moved into the NL, not out from it, so even if he has confidence in his players, the job of making the playoffs is certainly harder now than it was a week ago (before our latest slump).

Rizzo knew it was dumb to buy. But could not talk the Lerners into selling.

If we knew it wouldn't be a great year, then why didn't we sell?

Ballplayers are not one year investments.  Why sell after a great year ?

The Nationals, under current ownership and current GM, were one of the teams that pioneered the modern MLB rebuild. And refuse to go back there, for now. Very interesting.

We may have very well been sellers but, “my guess” is the owners are all losing a ton of money due to COVID-19 and don’t want to take on any additional debt especially not knowing when the gates will be reopened and fans are willing to return. Plus the Lerners might want to keep some of our World Series stars around to celebrate at Nats Park when the fans do return. (Scherzer, Howie, Studzuki, etc.)
With the questionable future ahead i seriously doubt the Lerners will even make an effort at this time to extend Turner or Soto.

I’m very happy and content that my brother and I finally have our World Series Championship so I have no issues with not making any moves in this spectacle of a short season. Tank for the draft picks and ANYONE BUT THE PHILLIES mode is where I’m at.

LETS GO NAAAAAAAAATS!!!! Still “World Series Champs”!!! 🏆💪🏻😎👍🏻🍻

If the Lerners were that concerned with money, then this was the perfect time to trade Kendrick, Cabrera, Hudson, Gomes, and Suzuki.
