Mets trade pitching prospects Matt Allan and J.T. Ginn for the oh-so-versatile Nick Senzel

I like what Nick Senzel could bring to the Mets. He has a little bit of Jeff McNeil in him. Mostly used as a center fielder during his big league career, he has also played some infield and is probably best suited somewhere other than where the Reds have played him.

Those who follow the Mets farm system closely can guess what my feelings on this trade might be. Matt Allan is the organization’s best pitching prospect and Ginn isn’t too far behind. For Senzel, a rather poor defender thus far with no clear position and a slow-to-grow bat, I’m going to have to give a big fat emphatic “NO!” to this trade.

To pry Allan and Ginn from the Mets, you’re going to have to come swinging much heavier than Senzel. Maybe if the Reds agree to drive our old friend Jesse Winker out to the desert and leave him there we can talk.

Before the season began, the Reds looked like one of the best trade partners for the Mets. Eugenio Suarez and Sonny Gray were two names often referenced with Luis Castillo as a fantasy option. Castillo has actually been horrific this year and Gray is completely unnecessary given how well the Mets starting rotation looks when everyone is healthy.
