Should Met Fans Be Happy Or Upset With Max Scherzer Now Gone?
Max Scherzer is no longer a member of the New York Mets. He did not perform anywhere close to his expectations and for the over $40 million that he is making. He was not clutch and choked for the Mets in the 2022 playoffs. The Mets are clearly selling and in the tank and I'm not really surprised that he was dealt to the Texas Rangers. I don't know if it's old age or a lingering injury but Scherzer is just not the same pitcher anymore. Below is my quick take on this as seen as the Times Union:
Good riddance to Max Scherzer because Mets fans won’t miss you, not even a little bit. Scherzer had a few good starts, but the rest were duds and when you consider the millions he was making, he was a total bust this season. Not sure what the Texas Rangers are thinking but hopefully they get the cy-young version of mad Max and not the washed-up version.
MJ and I discussed the Scherzer trade and the possibility of Verlander also being traded earlier this morning right here on Big Board Sports. Verlander might still be traded and he has been the Mets best pitcher by far. Hopefully they can get something in return for him to improve their team for the future. Below is our full conversation on this.
The Mets have really been a bad baseball team this season and won't make the playoffs. And with the payroll they have and talent on their roster it is incredibly disappointing. Who knows how long manager Buck Showalter will even last.
