LOL Might Stand for ‘Like Our Lineup’

Hey, the Mets made a trade [1] and got a guy they needed. Is that too optimistic a thought to express before Yoenis Cespedes [2] does a thing in blue and orange?

Cespedes come to the Mets from the Tigers for highly regarded pitching prospect Michael Fulmer [3] and fellow minor league hurler Luis Cessa [4]. Even if Cespedes tanks and the two kids turn into Hal Newhouser [5] and Dizzy Trout [6] for Detroit, this was a shot worth taking. Yoenis can hit, and the Mets are already covered for pitching.

Still Mets: Zack Wheeler [7]; Wilmer Flores [8]. Nice to keep them, too.

Three games out of first, three games coming up against the first place team. Cespedes joins the fun Saturday. Let’s greet him with a winning streak of one.

Fun times ahead? More fun than we’ve lately been party to [9] would be a great spot to start.
