Trade #1: Thor Joins Sho-Time
While the trade market has a decent amount of positional stars, there’s only one starting pitcher with the name recognition and talent of a true ace. Noah Syndergaard could very well be with the Mets in 2020 as they take another shot at the postseason.
However, it would also make a lot of sense for the Mets to look into reloading their farm system. Marcus Stroman and Jacob DeGrom are two frontline starters anyway, making this trade even more reasonable.
This package from the Angels would give the Mets a nice balance of position players and pitchers, as their farm system could use a replenishing of both.

Brandon Marsh is the Halos’ #2 prospect, and many around the MLB believe he has the talent and grit to be a longtime starter in the MLB, with a few peak years of exceptional play. He has excelled and progressed throughout the minors repeatedly, and could be the centerpiece in a deal for Syndergaard,
Jose Saurez flashed some potential, but ultimately struggled during his rookie season. Chris Rodriguez has tons of potential, but has struggled with injuries the past two seasons. While he’s still young, the Angels may be smart to get some return while he still has value.
Noah Syndergaard would give the Angels a true ace alongside Ohtani. Sure, he’s had some inconsistencies and dealt with minor injuries, but it will be hard to find a more talented pitcher on the trade market than Syndergaard, and the Angels need to be all over that.
