Mets pitcher Jacob deGrom wants a long-term deal with the Mets. If they’re not willing to give him one, deGrom wants to be traded, via deGrom’s agent Brodie van Wagenen:
“We have discussed Jacob’s future with the Mets at length. Jacob has expressed interest in exploring a long-term partnership that would keep him in a Mets uniform for years to come.”
More from deGrom’s agent:
“If the Mets don’t share same interest, we believe their best course of action is to seriously consider trade opportunities now. The inertia of current situation could complicate Jacob’s relationship with the club and creates an atmosphere of indecision.”
Whatever the Mets do will be the wrong move. If they sign deGrom long-term he will be injured the entire time. If they trade him, he will go on to be one of the best pitchers of all time. It’s classic Mets.
