Mets pitcher Marcus Stroman is “praying” on a Francisco Lindor trade
The affinity between Marcus Stroman and Francisco Lindor has played out on social media, sending New York Mets fans into a frenzy.
It seems that every week lately that anybody associated with the New York Mets organization is doing or saying something on social media to cause excitement one way or the other among their fans. Well, that trend continued a couple of days before Thanksgiving between starting pitcher Marcus Stroman and potential trade target Francisco Lindor.
The recently turned 27-year old shortstop had shown off some new clothes on his Instagram story on Tuesday morning from Stroman’s HDMH Apparel clothing line. This certainly turned Mets Twitter completely upside down with many fans trying to connect the dots and also wondering out loud if Stroman is actively recruiting the prized shortstop.
After Lindor displayed the apparel on his social media many fans had reached out to Stroman on Twitter regarding the clothes that were now in Lindor’s possession.
The 29-year old starting pitcher had used a quote tweet regarding a very specific tweet that had been directed to him regarding Lindor joining the Mets, and the 29-year old pitcher had replied: “I’m praying on this.” Stroman had also responded to another Twitter user regarding his recruiting pitch to Lindor and he simply yet powerfully answered: “I’m on it.”
This also comes on the heels of ESPN reporter Buster Olney reporting earlier Tuesday morning that a source had informed him that, “the Mets are targeting more than one of the big four of the winter free agents (Springer, Realmuto, Bauer, Lindor).”
Between Buster Olney’s information this morning and Marcus Stroman’s recruiting, it seems more gasoline has been added to the fire in regards to the Mets landing Francisco Lindor this offseason.

While no Lindor deal seems to be close as the organization doesn’t currently possess a General Manager, the rumblings surrounding Lindor and the Mets organization continue to intensify as we continue to move forward into the winter months. One thing is for certain, however, if the Mets are to somehow land Lindor in a trade this offseason, Stroman’s one-year $18.9 million contract will be worth every penny before he even steps foot on a mound this spring.
