The Low-Down On Ian Desmond

Ian Desmond is probably available for the right package, but the Mets won’t be signing him. If the Nationals were willing to discount him given he is a one year rental there might be a possibility, however, they’re not, in fact they appear more likely to stick with him through 2015 rather than offer him at a discount. They will at the very least recoup a first round compensatory...

Troy Tulowitzki or Ian Desmond to the Mets Not Happening

Charlie Monfort, co-owner of the Colorado Rockies, smiled when The Post told him of the many Mets fans who would love to see Troy Tulowitzki get traded to Citi Field. “It’s not happening,” Monfort responded.

How would Ian Desmond have fit with the 2015 Mets?

There were reports of the Mets almost acquiring the Nationals shortstop Ian Desmond, but at a hefty cost. He only has one year left on his contract before he hits free agency, which was probably one of the biggest factors in Alderson not going through with the trade. Desmond would be an upgrade over Wilmer Flores, but not one worth the cost of Noah Syndergaard and another top...
