Welp, There Goes The Mets 2010 Season

2009 July 29

Well, what I feared in my last post a couple of hours ago just happened. I want to die.

The Philadelphia Phillies and Cleveland Indians agreed to a trade that would bring Cliff Lee to the NL East leaders along with outfielder Ben Francisco for four minor leaguers, according to major league sources.

Triple-A right-hander Carlos Carrasco, Class A righty Jason Knapp, catcher Lou Marson — the likely heir apparent to Victor Martinez — and shortstop Jason Donald will be sent to Cleveland.

The trade is pending physical exams.

The Phillies weren’t required to give up pitcher J.A. Happ or the three prospects they balked at trading for Roy Halladay — outfielders Dominic Brown and Michael Taylor, and pitcher Kyle Drabek.

Fuck you Cleveland. You just got fucking fleeced because you wanted to dump salary. I guess that happens when your economy is based on Lebron James. What the fuck can the Mets even do to counter this going into next season? They’re not going to get Roy Halladay, and the free-agent market this offseason is pathetic. John Lackey as the crown jewel of the 2010 starting pitcher free-agent class? Fuck me.

Time to start looking forward to 2011. Maybe sign Halladay through free-agency. Maybe Fernando Martinez will have played a full season by then. Maybe Brad Holt or Jenrry Mejia will be ready for major league action. Sigh.
