DateQuestionAnswer
2017-06-27 20:00:00 (link to chat)Is Dustin Fowler a fair return for Addison Reed or is that unrealistic? Shouldn't he net a similar return as Melancon? Could you see the Mets packaging Reed/Duda in a deal with NYY?
(AI from BK)
We've got multiple Dustin Fowler to the Mets questions even. The Melancon trade is kind of a weird one because they traded him for another MLB reliever, but Dustin Fowler is the type of fringe top 100 prospect I expect Reed to go for. And Duda makes sense too, of course.

At the same time, when was the last time the Mets and Yankees made a substantial trade? Armando Benitez? (Jarrett Seidler)
