    And there is the value of Cohen money.

    I'd rather see Guillorme get the ABs than Mr. Loafer.

    I was getting worried because of all of the stories saying that it looked like he wouldn't be released, but thank God they pulled the trigger. It's nice that Cohen has the $$, but it's not like his spot on the roster is going to someone making very much, so this never was actually about money; it was about being willing to admit something didn't work, and accept that there is always the chance that something will happen in the future to make you regret releasing him. It seems unlikely that that will be on the field - I can't imagine why any team would want to sign him at this point - but it's possible that it will affect the clubhouse in a way that they wouldn't want. That's life.

    The funny thing is that so far this trade has actually not been such a bad one for the Mets. Cano's total WAR for the Mets was 1.4, and Diaz's has been 2.2. Bruce's was 0.1 for Seattle, Swarzak's was -0.3, Bautista's was -0.3, Kelenic's has been -1.6, and Dunn's was 1.6. The Mets win that comparison by a clear margin. Cano cost $80 million (Seattle paid $16 million of the salary), and maybe Kelenic will end up being good, so it has hardly been a good trade, but on balance so far it's been much less bad than people think. And at least Diaz closed out the team's second no-hitter in spectacular fashion.

    I knew when Cano signed that 10 year deal that the last few years would be a waste. As a Yankee fan, he was one guy I didn't mind losing. Glad you got rid of that dead weight.

    The Braves certainly do have the ability to make the Mets look bad, don't they?

    Braves are +26 games over the Mets H2H since 2018. What a joke

    This team is unserious until they figure out how to beat the fucking Braves; they are not that good of a team, sub 90 wins for sure (just barely). Figure it out.

    Peterson messes up routine double play, immediately costs three runs.

    Diaz nails down game 1. A win in the nightcap would guarantee another nonlosing series.

    Lugo nails down the Mets' sixth shutout of the year to complete the sweep. Carrasco with 8 innings of dancing in and out of trouble. Most amazingly, game time was 2:18!
