Juan Marichal Jersey

The agent for New York Mets pitcher Jacob deGrom wants to see the team either sign him to a long-term deal or trade him now."We have discussed Jacob鈥檚 future with the Mets at length Jay Bruce Jersey ,"CAA's Brodie van Wagenen said Monday, per Ken Rosenthal of the Athletic. "Jacob has expressed interest in exploring a long-term partnership that would keep him in a Mets uniform for years to come.If the Mets don鈥檛 share thesame interest, we believe their best course of action is to seriously consider trade opportunities now.""The inertia of thecurrent situation could complicate Jacob鈥檚 relationship with the club and creates an atmosphere of indecision," Van Wagenen added, per Rosenthal.DeGrom is under team control through the 2020 season.The 30-year-old is in the midst of the best year of his career, leading all qualified pitchers with a 1.68 ERA. He has 149 strikeouts in 123.1 innings to go with a 0.97 WHIP.Unfortunately, the Mets have struggled mightily and are just 39-55 at the All-Star break. These struggles have impacted deGrom as well鈥攈e is just 5-4 on the year despite his outstanding start.This has led to plenty of trade speculation throughout the season with teams looking for an elite, controllable starter.Rosenthalpreviously reported the Mets are "open for business" in trades, although it would take a "boatload" of talent to get deGrom.Still, the pitcher remains hopeful he can stay with his current team on a long-term deal. He explained Monday his preference is that he is "a Met for my whole career," perJoel Shermanof theNew York Post.According toAnthony DiComoof MLB.com http://www.metsfanproshop.com/authentic-tim-tebow-jersey , the two sides had discussed a long-term deal during the offseason but weren't close enough to agree on an extension.The Mets now seemingly have to make a decision whether to trade deGrom, sign a new deal or let things get awkward in the next two years. NEW YORK (AP) — Their ace got booed off the mound, loudly. Their manager let things get out of hand. And their backup catcher wound up pitching.“It was an embarrassing day today,” New York Yankees shortstop Didi Gregorius said.Not much else to say after the Yankees absorbed the most-lopsided loss in their distinguished, 396-game postseason history, routed by the Boston Red Sox 16-1 Monday night in the AL Division Series.Now down 2-1 and in danger of being eliminated in the best-of-five matchup, they’ll turn to CC Sabathia on Tuesday night in hopes of saving their season. Rick Porcello starts for Boston.“No choice but to flush,” manager Aaron Boone said. “The good thing about today is it’s one game. And as awful of a night as it was for us, we got to turn the page. And tomorrow’s obviously do or die.”Luis Severino looked out of sorts from the start. There was a TBS report that he began to warm up only 10 minutes before the game began, but Boone insisted he had enough time to get ready. Severino also said there was no issue.“I always go to the bullpen 10 minutes before the game,” Severino said. “I warm up quickly.”The game fell apart quickly David Wright Jersey , too.Severino was tagged for six runs on seven hits and two walks in three-plus innings. Jeered as he walked to the dugout during a seven-run burst in the fourth, it soon was 10-0.By the seventh, the stands had started to empty. The fans who left early missed a bit of history — Austin Romine became just the second position player to pitch in a postseason game.The second-string catcher actually hit 90 mph with his fastball. And he squarely hit Brock Holt’s bat, and the result was a two-run homer in the ninth that gave Holt the first cycle in postseason history.“I was just trying to get it over the plate,” Romine said.Romine joined Toronto infielder Cliff Pennington, who pitched in the 2015 AL playoffs against Kansas City, as non-pitchers to take the hill at this time of year.“No, I didn’t envision myself getting into the playoffs in this role,” he said.Holt’s homer helped the Red Sox post the biggest rout of the Yankees in postseason play, surpassing Arizona’s 15-2 pasting in Game 6 of the 2001 World Series.A sellout crowd arrived early at Yankee Stadium, loudly chanting and cheering even before the teams lined up for pregame introductions. Clearly http://www.metsfanproshop.com/authentic-tim-tebow-jersey , no one rooting for the home team expected anything like this.Catcher Gary Sanchez dropped a pitch on a stolen base that set up Boston’s first run. Left fielder Andrew McCutchen was slow to retrieve a hit that proved costly. And Boone was slow to pull a struggling Severino, admitting he could’ve made the move sooner, rather than waiting until Boston loaded the bases in a hurry.“I mean, in hindsight because he didn’t get an out, sure,” Boone said.And when Boone did call for a reliever, he summoned a starter, Lance Lynn, rather than someone from the deep New York bullpen.Lynn promptly walked Mookie Betts on four pitches to force home a run that made it 4-0, then gave up a three-run double to Andrew Benintendi.“Lance had a little bit of trouble, obviously Mookie Wilson Jersey , coming in there. So it just turned into a really bad inning for us,” Boone said.It was a sharp turnaround for Severino.Severino started New York’s postseason with four shutout innings in the AL wild-card win over Oakland last Wednesday. The performance also alleviated fears in the Bronx — temporarily, anyway — the 24-year-old righty had put past playoff troubles behind him.Instead, coming off a career-high 19 wins, he exited with a 1-2 record and a 6.26 ERA in six postseason starts.“Of course, I’m disappointed,” Severino said.
