Doug Melvin Believes Mets Have Been Unfairly Criticized

Aug 3, 2015 7:45 AM

Doug Melvin told Jim Duquette and Jim Bowden of MLB Network Radio after the trade deadline that he believes "the [New York] Mets have taken some unfair criticism about asking for money back in the [Carlos] Gomez deal."

The Milwaukee Brewers had a deal in place with the Mets that would have sent Gomez to New York in exchange for Zack Wheeler and Wilmer Flores, but talks broke down in the very late stages after it was believed that the trade had been completed.

Melvin explained that teams often ask for money in one form or another in deals, as "it's all part of the GM landscape these days."

Doug Melvin: Expects The Brewers To Continue Competing

Aug 2, 2015 11:24 AM

Brewers general manager Doug Melvin, who is considering retiring after this season, knows what lies ahead after trading away veterans this week, and it's not too good.

"We've lost a lot of offense, obviously, with losing Ramirez and Gerardo and Carlos Gomez," Melvin said. "So, our pitching better continue to be good. But it will create opportunities for a few other guys to get that chance to step up and perform offensively. So we'll just have to wait and see."

Jul 30, 2015 7:02 AM

The Milwaukee Brewers still plan to trade Carlos Gomez ahead of Friday's non-waiver deadline despite Wednesday night's failed swap with the New York Mets.

The deal, which would have sent Gomez to New York for Zack Wheeler and Wilmer Flores, broken down over medical records. There have been conflicting reports as to who backed out of the deal.

Scott Boras claims there is nothing wrong with the health of Gomez.

Mets, Brewers Trade Broke Down Over Medical Records

Jul 30, 2015 6:53 AM

The rumored trade between the New York Mets and Milwaukee Brewers involving Carlos Gomez, Zack Wheeler and Wilmer Flores broke down over medical records.

New York pulled the plug, according to a source. Multiple reports have cited concern over Gomez's hip.

Scott Boras, Gomez's agent, disputed any medical issue with Gomez, though.

"He's in first-class physical condition without issue," Boras said. "We monitor our players closely. If there was ever an issue with him, we would have him seen by experts in a particular area. He has not been seen by any outside physicians this year. Other than a hamstring issue, he's been in great physical health. He plans on playing in the big leagues for the next 15 years."

Wheeler underwent Tommy John surgery in March, but a source told that his medical information played no role in the deal disintegrating.
