Jay Bruce 3 years $36 million (Played well in NY and the market for OF is not that strong)
Neil Walker 2 years $22 million (Spoke about an extension in the offseason, will get it done)

Jake Arrieta 1 year $20 million (one year deal to improve his stock after a rough 2017)
Jonathon Lucroy 2 years $23 million (Good veteran to improve the Mets staff)

The Mets have $80 million committed to the payroll for next season. They played this year around $130 million. They have about $50 million to spend this year. These moves take up $54 million in cap space. This would be the only way the Mets take advantage of their window.

Arrieta has been an average starter this year. I really don't think he'll be accepting a 1 year contract at this point in his career. Might be taking a lesser amount per year but he'll still get some years.

They'll have less than $50M. You have to consider the arbitration costs of deGrom, d'Arnaud, Flores, Harvey, Wheeler, and even more so, Syndergaard.

By the time they pay out those salaries, it's closer to about $15M–20M. I doubt the Mets can do anything significant unless their ownership stops being so cheap.

Lucroy has had a terrible year, both offensively and framing pitches.

Harvey will not be pitching for the Mets next year.
