Dream NY Mets bullpen after the trade deadline: Seth Lugo, right-handed reliever
Seth Lugo gets a reduced role in the Mets bullpen. Although he does have minor league options and some may want to see him sent to Syracuse, this particular dream scenario has Lugo regaining form, pitching well, and winning back the fans who Taylor Swift sang about: the haters.
