They're still buzzing in New York after the Mets pulled off a trade that brings superstar shortstop Francisco Lindor to Flushing.
Lindor, along with pitcher Carlos Carrasco, were sent to the Mets on Wednesday in exchange for infielders Amed Rosario & Andres Giminez and 2 prospects. The immediate reaction from the press, of course, is that new majority owner Steve Cohen is very serious about making the Mets a contender again.
Lasorda was a 3rd base coach and manager for the Los Angeles Dodgers, moving into the dugout to succeed Walter Alston in 1976. He led the Dodgers to 4 World Series, winning 2 (1981, 1988), and directed Team USA to a gold medal in the 2000 Summer Olympics.
