Mets final 3 moves:

1. Trade McNeil for Sean Manaea

2. Sign Matthew Boyd to 2 year incentive laden deal (he can prove valuable late in the year when healthy)

3. Sign Josh Harrison as a super-utility guy (2b, 3b, OF and in a pinch SS)

4. Sign Collin McHugh for Pen and starter depth

NY Mets finish Offseason:
(not saying they'll sign all but these are players they should consider)

manager: Buck Showalter, Matt Quatraro or Geren

Sign pitchers:
Starter - Rondon

R McHugh
L Deikman, Chafin, Hand

Bench Depth
Josh Harrison, Joc Pederson

Wow! Three great signing by the Mets. Cahna and Escobar were very good value signings. even with no other signings I like their lineup. who know they may still get Baez but

Now Mets need 2 starters.
Love to see Gausman and Stroman

1. CF - Marte
2. LF - Nimmo
3. SS - Lindor
4. 1b - Alonso
5. 3b - Escobar
6. 2b - McNeil
7. RF - Cahna
8. DH - Cano
9. C - McCann

6 man rotation?
deGrom*, Stroman, Gausman, Carrasco, Walker, Megill / Peterson

Not saying it's impossible, but adding Stroman AND Gausman would put their payroll around $250 million without addressing their bullpen. I think they get one of those guys, a cheaper back-end guy, and then allocate some money to their bullpen. Cohen isn't going to be too discouraged by any tax threshold it appears tho.

Robinson Cano for Craig Kimbrel would clear $8M for Cohen, and probably falls more in line with what the White Sox can get for Kimbrel.

3.) 28 Nov 2021 03:15:31
Apparently the Sox currently have a choice between Cano and Lindor.

NY Mets 2022 - 2023

Mets are stuck with Cano for 1 more year and deGrom is a huge ????
My strategy is a 2 year process with major focus of shoring up pitching with this offseason and give Baty, Vientos and Mauricio another year of devopelment

Mets move this offseason
1. Extend QO to Thor, Stroman and Conforto (I suspect that only Thor may accept then look to sign long term after a healthy year)

2. Sign 2 of these starters -
Gausman, Rondon, Kershaw, Robbie Ray, Stroman

3. Resign Loup

4. Sign Chris Taylor

1. CF - Nimmo
2. SS - Lindor
3. 1B - Alonso
4. LF - D. Smith
5. 3b - Chris Taylor
6. RF - McNeil
7. C - McCann
8. 2b - Cano

Degrom? (if healthy need 6man rotation)
Ray* (2 from list above)

Diaz, May, Lugo, Loup, Castro, David Peterson, Trevor Williams, Drew Smith

2023 lineup
1. CF - Nimmo
2. SS - Lindor
3. RF - Chris Taylor
4. 1B - Alonso
5. 3b - Baty
6. LF - Vientos / McNeil
7. 2b - Mauricio / McNeil
8. C - McCann

Offering Syndergaard a QO would be very surprising.

2.) 05 Nov 2021 13:52:10
Will the Mets even have a guy leading the front office to make these moves?

3.) 05 Nov 2021 14:54:04
What happens if Stroman, Syndergaard and Conforto all accept the QO?

4.) 05 Nov 2021 16:00:02
Stroman can't be offered a QO, on conditions of him being offered one already. (Giants are in the same boat with Gausman)

5.) 05 Nov 2021 19:02:54
facts on the front office. lol

good call on stroman. QO doesn't apply.

if both thor and conforto accept its not a bad things.

6.) 07 Nov 2021 12:06:21
I'm kinda blown away by Syndergaard getting a QO. He should accept (and I suspect he will) .

7.) 07 Nov 2021 07:04:23
When will Mets, realize if they ever want truly win . Rather try buy all best players, the reason the braves been so good for so long was they drafted and develop there own players and then when they where all ready supplement there roster with right pieces to when the World Series . This goes the same to the Yankees and red Sox and all other teams, teams that win develops there own player then when they are truly ready have a Core player on there team they had one or two pieces, if look The braves back when they won all those division titles and fact the been so good now and won the series was they had Bulk of the roster they develop their own players and then supplement the pieces that they need to win. . Instead going for the quick fix do it right way and Mets and other teams might have better chance in the future, I know this not a Popular. View but it’s how it works, stop trying buy a championship it doesn’t work .

I'm not well versed with the NYY Prospects but somehow I see the Mets and Yankees are lined up for a trade.

I see Nimmo and Dom Smith as pieces going to the NYY

What do you suppose the NYY interest would be and what prospect package they would send to Mets if interested?




12 Dec 2021 22:00:57
I hope the Mets hire Quatraro for Manager.

I'd hire anyone from the Rays organization.

As a matter of fact if I were Steve Cohen, I'd call the owner of the Rays and offer him $50 million to release his entire staff (scouting, analytics, minor league coaches, major league personel and throw in the payroll dept) to be hired by the Mets


1.) 13 Dec 2021 13:44:45
If Cohen offered to build Stu Sternberg his stadium, the Rays would do it in a heartbeat.

2.) 19 Dec 2021 04:24:08
Showalter, oof.

3.) 22 Dec 2021 20:14:59
Says the guy whose team literally hired Tony La Russa out of the Arizona State Penitentiary. Oof.

4.) 27 Dec 2021 02:37:32
The Sox and Mets can both make bad hires, Nathan.

5.) 11 Jan 2022 13:35:25
Right. The White Sox are basically the New York Mets of the American League.

Not exactly a desirous title.
