Listen: Jeff Wilpon Talks To Beat Reporters

Jeff Wilpon talked to all of the Met beat reporters including our own Rich Coutinho today as the Mets announced their blockbuster seven player trade with the Seattle Mariners that bought Robinson Cano and Edwin Diaz to New York.

On Robinson Cano PED Suspension:

“I don’t think he’s a drug cheat. I could be proven wrong, but I don’t think he’s a drug cheat.”

On trading Noah Syndergaard:

“He’s a very important part of the team, and unless Brodie gets what he feels is more than fair, I don’t think he’s going to make a deal and pull the trigger on that.”

Listen to his full session here where he discusses a myriad of topics including the team’s payroll, direction, and impact of the new GM.
