Perhaps the most surprising aspect of this MLB season is that the New York Mets and Yankees have dined with one another.

It’s not as though the two borough organizations haven’t dealt with one another in the past. The surprise may be as simple as they’ve come together so early in Brodie Van Wagenen’s young executive career.

This is why the three-team deal discussions between the Mets, Yankees and Miami Marlins concerning J.T. Realmuto shocked many onlookers.

Multiplying the shock was the idea that All-Star pitcher Noah Syndergaard would be involved, eventually making his way to the Bronx, per Mike Puma of the New York Post.

However, on Tuesday, Andy Martino of SNY reports that these very real discussions are now fizzling.

Puma insists the Mets continue their heavy pursuit of the NL All-Star catcher.

The newest info has the NL New York team more apt to trade young Amed Rosario for Realmuto. Joel Sherman of the Post recently floated this idea in addition to the Mets signing an infielder to replace the young shortstop.

Marlins CEO Derek Jeter is “insisting” that a deal involving Realmuto must fetch a quality MLB-level piece, per Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald.

As it pertains to the Mets and Marlins straight up, Jon Heyman of Fancred Sports suggests the team is weighing the idea of Rosario or Syndergaard for Realmuto.

It’s only Day 2 of the Winter Meetings, folks. At times, it’s tiring. At times, it’s simply gossip.

Until something actually materializes, don’t’ fully buy into anything reported, suggested or insisted by any one reliable journalist.
