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 terrible deal for the Red Sox. They are already trying to keep too many catchers on the roster as it is, and they now have Bradley, Betts, Benny, Nunez and Holt as outfield options in addition to Martinez who will probably rotate there from DH on occasion. They also aren't going to be moving any of their top pitchers. Sale is Mr. Consistent, but he's really the only one. I have high hopes for Pomeranz, Price, Porcello, Wright and Rodriguez, but none of them has proven that he can go out and be the clear #2 for s full season in Boston. I'm not moving that depth unless it's for someone who's absolutely worth it. Ryu and Joc aren't those guys.

I'd be interested to see what the Mets would be able to cobble together to make a deal here. Kipnis would be an obvious fit, but the addition of Salazar would either give them some solid rotational depth. probably the route they'd want to go considering the injury history of most rotation members. If not, they would then have an area of depth to trade from. The Cubs might be a good trade partner since they have some infield depth. Or they might try to fleece the Marlins for Realmuto like everyone else has.

I'd be interested to see what kind of a deal the Mets could put together for that kind of return. Kipnis obviously fills a need for them, and Salazar would give them either more depth in the rotation, or comfort to be able to move a pitcher or two to fill another hole in the infield.

I did hear something about the Brewers being interested in Jacoby, which baffles me. That seems like it would be the one area they don't need. I think they would need to move a little bit more than Abreu with him as well, no matter where he's going, and Villar is probably more than they'd get back. Abreu plus is just what they would have to include in order for a team to take Jacoby. They'd have to add to that whatever the equal value of a player coming to NY would be.

I think he was giving the full roster in order to make the point that the team could wind up pretty good this year. With the amount of posts that are in here daily, I don't mind having more in depth posts to read.
