So DiPoto is on the record as saying he is rebuilding the M’s around a younger core of Diaz, Haniger, Gonzales, etc.
Now he is using Diaz as a trade chip?
If he deals Diaz, the guy is just a flat out liar. Dealing your 24 year old all star is not rebuilding around a younger core, it is gutting the team/liquidating assets.
Also, while we are on the topic, the team still doesn’t have a starting catcher. This could be a painful few years.
Seattle needs to unload Cano's albatross contract. If the Mets are willing the take that on, Diaz is expendable. Freeing up that salary will be more beneficial for them in the next 3-4 years than Diaz's impact at the expense of keeping Cano on the payroll.
