Well, we will continue clearing out my draft posts with another Zistle trade. Sadly, it looks like Zistle will be coming to an end at some point. Some may know and some may not, but Zistle was sued by Beckett, which shall be known henceforth as Dickett. I know, not very creative. Anyway, Dickett thought Zistle infringed on their copyrights by allegedly using their checklists. My guess is that the owners of Zistle had to let it go due to legal fees.
It is a pretty shitty move by Dickett. I purchased their price guides back in the day, but I have not used them for much of anything since then, so I can't really boycott them. I hope anyone who used Zistle or, at the very least, cares about having options in a marketplace decides to boycott.
Back to the trade. This one was another with John. He reached out with an offer. I did not have a problem with said offer, so a quick deal was made.
Matt Reynolds made an interesting piece of history last season. He spent the entire 2015 season in Triple A with the Las Vegas 51's and had yet to make an appearance in the big leagues. We all recall the hoopla of Ruben Tejada, Chase Utley, and the slide which resulted in a broken leg for Tejada.
With an infielder short, the Mets called up Matt Reynolds making him the first modern player to be added in the middle of a series without having major league experience. He didn't get to play in the playoffs and was dropped off the roster for the World Series. He eventually made his MLB debut the following season on May 17, 2016 in place of a scratched David Wright.
