The Francisco Lindor trade has received a lot of attention over the past week, with a lot of that attention going to Lindor himself, as the Mets brought in one of the brightest young stars in the game. But the other acquisition in the Lindor trade, may prove to be just as big of a move, as bringing in Carlos Carrasco helps solidify the rotation, and adds another easy to root for guy in the clubhouse.

Photo by Ron Schwane/ Let’s take a look at the pitches the Mets’ newest starting pitcher throws. Carlos Carrasco is set to introduce himself to Mets fans and the media that cover the team this afternoon with a virtual press conference, much like Francisco Lindor did yesterday.

Grading the Francisco Lindor trade

David Richard-USA TODAY Sports It’s only an A+ because there isn’t a higher grade. Maybe you were getting antsy after a couple quiet weeks. Maybe you started to have doubts about how serious Steve Cohen was. Those doubts should’ve been silenced on Thursday, as the Mets traded for Francisco Lindor and Carlos Carrasco by parting with Amed Rosario, Andres Gimenez, Josh Wolf, and Isiah Green. Lindor hardly needs any introduction, so let’s skip over him for a moment and talk about the other pieces involved in this trade. Amed Rosario is, at this point, a failed...
