There’s been mixed feelings on both sides. While Kelly has not been producing at the plate this year, many Braves fans have remained hopeful that he had potential to hit at least above .260 and be a threat at the plate.
On the flip side, while Morris hasn’t had great numbers this year in AA, many Mets fans still believe that he has potential as a reliever, especially given his high strikeout ability.
In an effort to bring some kind of peace and happiness to my beloved Braves family (and to also write something negative about the Mets – my mortal enemy), here’s some angry tweets from Mets fans in regards to Wednesday’s trade.
Just got back from to school, to learn Akeel Morris got traded?!? WHAT?!?!?!? NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
I love how people are shredding the #Mets over trading Akeel Morris. The issue is if you wanted Johnson, why not re-sign him in off season?
Giving up Akeel Morris isn’t fun, but bigger problem with acquiring Kelly Johnson is that he’s hitting .215/.273/.289 with -0.5 WAR so- WHY?
NOT AKEEL MORRIS!!!! NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!
I would rather have Akeel Morris than not have him
Akeel Morris for Kelly Johnson! Not a fan of this trade!
