Brodie Van Wagenen made a splash in his first move as Mets GM. He acquired All-Star second baseman Robinson Cano and 2018’s best closer Edwin Diaz from the Seattle Mariners in exchange for Jay Bruce, Anthony Swarzak, outfield prospect Jarred Kelenic, pitching prospect Justin Dunn, and pitcher Gerson Bautista. I wrote a column for WFAN below explaining why Mets fans should be thrilled with the trade.

I also spoke with former Knicks Len Elmore and Tom Hoover.

I had the chance to cover the David Wells Perfect Game 20th Anniversary in May for WFAN.com. I spoke with Wells, David Cone, Bernie Williams, and other Yankees about that 1998 team vs. this 2018 Yankees team as we draw parallels, talk about the event, and take a trip down memory lane.
