It’s been quite the busy months of July and August for the New York Mets, and it was definitely not in terms of on the field action

In terms of trades. Seriously, half of our Opening Day lineup is now playing for other teams.

To give you a recap on the moves that were made:

We knew that the Mets were going to be sellers at the deadline (and even beyond that). But, we argued that the Mets should be buyers and sellers at the deadline (clearly that didn’t happen).

Now though, the Mets may be done.

On Monday, Mets GM Sandy Alderson said that there currently aren’t any other trade moves “in the works.” Let’s all just take a second to focus on the irony that Asdrubal Cabrera, who asked to be traded from this team, is one of the very few veteran players that remains on this team.

Okay, he remains on it for now, but there has been more and more interest in him. But, according to Alderson, there’s nothing in the works there.

Now, does that mean nothing is going to happen from now and August 31st, when players must be traded by if they are to be on the potential postseason roster of their new team? Of course not. Alderson literally said that “anything can happen” during this time period. That “anything” could very well include Cabrera (or anyone else for that matter) no longer being on this team.

Next: To no one's surprise, Matz to the DL

But, as of right now, the Mets supposedly have nothing up their sleeves. They’re (supposedly) currently not in the midst of making any moves. And we’ll all just see if this is the end of #hugwatch(es) until the end of the season.
