The New York Mets are looking to add some big pieces to will their way out of the franchise funk they’ve been in, and adding two Colorado Rockie superstars will be a perfect way to do that.
The two names that the Mets have been linked to in the last 24 hours are Troy Tulowitzki and Carlos Gonzalez, who would be massive additions to a Mets team that is trying to become a force in the National League after years of just painfully existing.
According to Jon Heyman from CBSSports.com, the Rockies and Mets are going to more than likely put trade talks on hold until the winter.
The Rockies and Mets haven’t gotten off the ground on talk about Colorado superstars Troy Tulowitzki and Carlos Gonzalez, so any chance to do a deal will likely have to wait for the winter.
“Unless we do speed dating, I think that’s safe to say [that any deal will wait until winter],” one person involved in the limited talks said.
This makes a lot of sense considering the Rockies are reluctant to trade Tulowitzki and the Mets are going to try and make sure they don’t get fleeced in a deal that would land them two superstar quality players. Frankly, as bad as the Mets have been the past few years, anything is worth adding talent like Gonzalez and Tulowitzki n a trade but there’s always room for caution.
Don’t get it twisted this deal isn’t dead, rather it’s just on hold and could very well be revisited at the Winter Meetings.
