NYM, ‘highest spending ever’, eventually ‘finish trade’ as a seller


It seems that the New York Mets, who recorded the best team payroll in major league history, eventually gave up advancing to the postseason. Traded David Robertson (38).

US Fox Sports reported on the 28th (Korean time) that the New York Mets are sending closer Robertson to the same district as the Miami Marlins. The price is two rookie league minor league players.

This can be seen as the New York Mets’ seller declaration. The New York Mets are still in 4th place in the Eastern Division of the National League with a 48-54 season win rate of 0.471 through the 28th.

The gap with the Atlanta Braves, the leader in the district, reaches 17 games, and the gap with the Cincinnati Reds, the third place in the wild card, is 7 games. It’s a record worth giving up on in the postseason.

On the other hand, Miami, which recruited Robertson, recorded a 55-48 win rate of 0.534 through the 28th, trailing Cincinnati by half a game.

It is natural for a team with poor performance to declare a seller. The problem is the size of the New York Mets’ spending. The New York Mets have two players with an annual salary of over $40 million.

Also, the team payroll for this season is 340 million dollars. the largest ever. Accordingly, there were many prospects that the New York Mets would never choose Seller.

But eventually, the New York Mets sent their closer to the same district team. This is no different than giving up the season.메이저사이트

Now, the New York Mets are expected to trade players including Justin Verlander (40) and Max Scherzer (39).

Robertson, who went to Miami this time, is a veteran right hand reliever. By the 28th, he threw 44 innings in 40 games of the season, recording 4 wins, 2 losses, 7 holds, 14 saves and an average ERA of 2.05.
