Mets Trade Rumors: Noah Syndergaard asking price is touch to match

New York Mets trade rumors are beginning to trickle in. The latest on Noah Syndergaard include an asking price I’m not sure any team can meet.

For those hoping the New York Mets will not trade starting pitcher Noah Syndergaard, you can breathe a sigh of relief. It doesn’t sound like he will get dealt. That’s because the Mets trade rumors surrounding the big righty are a little insane.

You have to be insane to deal Syndergaard though, right? He’s a talented young arm who may have his best days ahead of him. Because of this, the Mets have seemingly put an impossible asking price on Thor.

Rather than expecting prospects or a major league player of equal value, the Mets are hoping to get several players back. According to Jon Heyman of Fancred, the mission is to “fill multiple holes with real impact.”

From those words, I take it that the Mets want at least two significant players back in return. At minimum, this means an everyday position player and a relief pitcher.

The problem with this is I can’t imagine too many teams are out there with this much to offer. A one-for-one deal, like Kris Bryant for Syndergaard, seems more attainable. Based on these Mets trade rumors about labeling the asking price as one which would require multiple impact players, I find it hard to believe Syndergaard is going anywhere.

To meet this asking price, a team would need significant depth. I’m not sure there’s anyone out there who could do this while offering up enough quality in return for one of the game’s best young starting pitchers.

In previous Mets trade rumors, we heard the San Diego Padres had heavy interest in Syndergaard. Unfortunately for them, the best they can offer are prospects. The Mets don’t appear interested in them as much as they want MLB-ready players.

It’s interesting that many of the Mets trade rumors we’ve heard about this winter have been about Syndergaard. Jacob deGrom’s name is completely absent from them and Zack Wheeler is an afterthought.

Syndergaard would undoubtedly bring back a nice haul in any deal the Mets strike. At the moment, with what they desire in return, I don’t see anyone matching.
