It appears to be like the trade will be worthwhile for the Mets in the long run. The catcher should solidify that position for the long term, if the projections are correct. Don't know much about the pitcher, he appears to be on the right track towards the major league level, and perhaps Alderson has another trade in mind using Syndergaard to get a proven outfielder. Lots to wait and see in future days. Sorry to see RA go, but this is probably as good as he will be, and helps get the Mets a good package of minor leaguers. Buck has been a decent catcher/hitter, no All Star, but can get the job done. Would have liked to see more from Thole last year, but was not to be, hopefully he'll get back up to speed as a hitter in Toronto.
