The Mets have been one of the only clubs to venture into the Free Agent pool. I think they should try to offer Eduardo Nunez to play second for them. Their outfield and Frazier make up a solid middle of the order, but they need more players to get on base in front of them. Nunez is a pretty good number two hitter, and plays a solid enough second base. Thoughts?

Nunez is allergic to leather.

They have Asdrubal to play 2nd.

The Mets need a CF to put between Conforto and Cespedes. If I'm them, I'm calling the Yankees about the availability of Gardener. They're looking to shed payroll in the Bronx, and they have an excess of OF with Gardener, Hicks, Jacoby, Judge, Frazier and now Stanton. They can rotate some players through the DH spot as well, but that's still a glut on the active roster. I'd offer them either Gsellman or Lugo, a younger depth infielder of their choice like Cechhini or TJ Rivera, and Harvey.

If Harvey comes back to form, this would be a steal for the Yankees, but even if he is just mediocre, they probably aren't getting much better out there. They won't get anything back for Jacoby, and they would likely have to pay a bunch of his contract. Gardener would be the perfect veteran winner to come over from the Bronx and provide that CF/Leadoff guy that they've been lacking, similar to when they signed Granderson. After that, they can look to sign some IF help on the free agent market.

So Gardener is Top Tier is what your saying?

You think that package of players from the Mets would get anyone in the top tier? Harvey has little trade value at this point, those two are back of the rotation pitchers, and any of those IF are purely depth guys. The Mets aren't getting any top tier players without giving up something that they shouldn't be willing to.

Gardener brings something that the Mets are lacking, and he's able to be had because of the situation the Yankees find themselves in. They have the stars they're building around, and want to cut some payroll. This gives them three pieces that they can fit into the back end of their roster with some upside, and helps get them under that luxury threshold.

Adding Gardener as their CF would give the Mets a complete outfield with Cespedes, Gardener and Conforto with Nimmo as a good 4th option. Gardener also brings you a good leadoff guy. He's also not too crazy expensive, so you could throw whatever money you were thinking about throwing at Bruce, and divert it towards an IF bat.

Right now their set pieces are Rosario and Smith, so they should be looking at upgrades at 3B and 2B, as well as a part time 1B. If I'm them, I throw money at a 3B since the market actually seems to be pretty flush right now with guys like Moustakas and Frazier, while there's plenty of part time types at 1B with guys like Adams and Reynolds (who would be my choice. ) They could also look at a guy like Howie Kendrick for 2B.

There's a lot of different directions they could go, while not spending tons of money on the premier guys out there. Most WS winning teams aren't superteams. They have their top couple of guys, and then everyone else produces. You need to have balance throughout, not just "top tier" guys.

This is a very anti-A's kind of move. First of all, I don't think Chapman and Puk are worth deGrom, but even so, giving up young control and bringing back contracts are not Oakland's style.

Massive overpay for all four of them. And I'm not sure why they're the team that seems to be making the most noise about a frontline starter right now. They aren't in a position to make a move playoffs wise, and I just don't see them being ready to take that leap, especially with the D-Backs and the Dodgers being the cream of the crop right now.

If the Mets could pull most of this off, they need to try. They can push for Tatis and Urias, although I don't know if they'd get both. For argument's sake, let's say they get Tatis, Margot and Baez or Morejon.

I don't think the Yankees are considering moving Torres, so you can replace him with someone else from the farm. possibly even getting Sanchez. Sanchez, Sheffield, Florial?

I think Wheeler will get you a legitimate prospect or two at this point. The Brewers have been rumored to be interested. Maybe Dubon and Diplan?

Cabrera has already brought back Kilome, who slots in as their #5 prospect.

Flores is an interesting play. He's got defensive versatility like Brock Holt has defensive versatility. meaning he can play just about anywhere at a mediocre level, but nowhere at a great level. He would be a great plug and play kind of guy for just about any contender. possibly the Dodgers who are missing Turner right now, or the Mariners who could use an upgrade on the right side of the infield.

That's a great start, but if I'm the Mets, I'm looking to bring back more than just those two. Wheeler could probably bring those two back, and if Lugo is also being thrown into the deal, you're giving up the guy who would probably take Wheeler's spot in the rotation. The other parts don't need to be top 10 guys, but lower guys with possible upside.

I think they would rather put in Andujar. He's a nice prospect, but Torres looks special. Sanchez is his own situation. He's shown to be lazy, he's not a great defensive catcher, and his best tool (bat) is not working right now. But if you can get that bat to come back around and make him middle of the road as a catcher, that bat is a difference maker. If they move him, it would be now.

Frazier is also an interesting situation right now. He's as talented as you can imagine, but his head issues worry me. He's been out for concussions frequently, and he's having migraines right now too. I'm not sure how much that impacts his value. If I'm the Mets though, I think I take that package, but try to swap out Mesoraco for any of their other catchers.

As far as that being a lot to give up for a wild card team, they aren't too far behind the Sox (fingers crossed it stays that way! ), and even if they do wind up in the Wild Card game. now those teams need to have two aces more than ever. If you pitch Severino in that game, you'd now have deGrom for game 1 of the ALDS.
