      Allistar123 um. The trade wasn't finalized. Sandy would call Terry if it were and tell him to take Flores off the field. The framework was agreed upon, but until all the parts of the process are completed, such as reviewing medicals, the thing isn't final. Reporters correctly reported that it was agreed on, and that led everyone to assume it was final.


    • Allistar123
      Allistar123 5 months ago

      not really...they just reported it, It was the lack of communication between the GM and Manager that led to this situation as he should not have been on the field if the trade was almost a done deal pending the medical records.

The best thing he could do would be to erase his original comment - the same one made by 16,732 people, 10 months before he did - the situation of which he later compounded by attempting (and failing) to make a joke in response to the death of Jose Fernandez.

    the Mets front office aren't the only ones who can handle a trade badly. look at what the Cubs front office did to Mitch Williams just before he was traded to the Phillies.... in fact, there's a Phillies game here where they interviewed him the day after he joined them. after the trade has to be just as bad, if you think about it....new team, new town, a rep from the team should be there to take you to the park because you don't have anywhere else to go. after the game, hopefully the gm has gotten you a hotel to stay at until you can get a place so you are living out of your luggage for the most part for home games and road games. all sorts of stuff running through your head until you can get a place of your own or someone offers you a room at their place.

    Still trying to figure out what's so strange about him being so emotional. I'm sure that's how everyone reacts to being traded. It's just they get to do it privately and Wilmer got to do it under the glare of the camera. I thought he held himself together pretty well.

    At the 1:51 mark-
    Collins: "you okay son?"
    Flores: "yeah coach...it's just..."
    Collins: "you're a little emotional, just want to make sure your head is in this game"
    Flores: "I'm not...I'm not emotional...it's just...these...these danged gnats, they keep flying in my eyes!"

    In all seriousness I love to see that kind of passion in a player. All other things being equal I'd take passion over talent eight days a week and I wish Flores nothing but success.

    So whats the story here? I realize Wilmer wasn't traded, but was it a rumor that started this incident? And who's to blame here?

      +Bill Slocum Thank you Bill. I did not fully understand the story when it came out, but your explanation made it very clear to me :)

      +Michael Perez There was a report that Carlos Gomez of the Milwaukee Brewers had been traded to the Mets for Flores and pitcher Zach Wheeler. It was being widely reported on ESPN and the internet at the same time the game began. In fact, the trade had just been nixed for reasons still unclear, but allegedly because Gomez had physical issues that were revealed during the standard medical review that precedes every trade. But this wasn't reported. So during the broadcast, SNY's broadcasters were talking about the trade as a done deal, and someone in the stands told Wilmer he was traded. That triggered this.

    wait, what exactly happened?
    There was a rumor that Flores is traded and he realized it during the game?
    I don't think the broadcasters could be talking so sure about it though if it was just a rumor.
