1/I’ll foolishly try this 1 last time: trades don’t get done quickly because all kinds of permutations are discussed and there are usually multiple teams involved and multiple voices in each organization. Maybe #Mets are about to trade Dunn, Kelenic, McNeil for a Happy Meal.
2/Players names get leaked for a variety of reasons, but not until a deal is done is it all understood. It is possible only 1 of those prospects are involved or 3 or none or there is a third team or other players. Also, the NYM know more about their prospects than all of us
3/Doesn't mean they won't make mistakes, only that most who say the NYM can't trade "X" have never even seen "X" play. There were those who thought the Padres were dumb for trading Wisler in the Kimbrel trade. He was a universal top-50 prospect. Didn't work out.
4/How many folks said the Red Sox gave up too much with Kopech/Moncada for Sale? There's nothing more overvalued in sports than top prospects in baseball. Go look at any top-10 prospect list from the past, you will find big hits like Bryant/Correa/Lindor, but also big misses
5/Buxton/Sano/Giolito. The idea of prospects being off limits for established stars is silly. The Red Sox just won the WS because Dombrowski was unafraid to trade prospects. Of course there is risk, but that is all we talk about these days. How about the rewards?
