this is really good news for the mets. Basically +20 million to spend and get to move McNeil back to the position he should have always been playing. Free's them up to even spend more and not be as lefty dominant in the lineup.

Yeah my first thought was who’s a good player on a $15-20M expiring contract who we might be able to trade for cheaply...I’m sure there are guys out there with so many teams presumably looking to save money.

From the list of

Springer
LeMahieu
Realmuto/Mccann
Ozuna

or even trades for Lindor/Arenado

I thought the mets would get 2 of those guy...they might be able to get 3 now.

Huge savings this year for sure, but the ability to spend more is only relative to what they're willing to spend long term. Robbie's got 2/48 left that kicks back in after this year, no?

And I was only laughing in the other thread because I've had Cano pegged as a PED user since he was starring on the Yankees (before his initial suspension), and then was astonished that the Mets took him on in the Kelenic deal. So I've got Fan Beef™ with him for about a decade now. :lol:

yeah but my guess that would be an issue for the wilpons. I don't think Cohen has any issue eating Cano's money down the road. I think Cohen was probably going to try to be somewhat reserved THIS offseason because he didn't want to freak out all the owners...but now he clears at least for one year 20 MM off the books.

The good thing is we hopefully are slowly ridding ourselves from everything of that trade.

Wilpons gone
Brodie gone
Cano gone (for now)

Kelnic will sting but we have Cohen so I'm gucci

Doesn't help what you'd want it to though because the LT calc is AAV.

Does this PED violation have any effect on the validity of the remainder of his contract?

Trevor Bauer has a YouTube channel. This is his video on Robinson Cano's PED suspension. He's already commenting on Mets news. I love it.
