Alderson speaking with media. Lists bullpen, second base and another power bat as important. Backing away from starting pitcher somewhat.

Mets would like a 1B/OF type says the GM. But Lagares is also "figuring into" the Mets' plans.

At the GM Meetings today, Sandy Alderson discussed the importance of acquiring even more relief help. "Any way you cut it, the bullpen is becoming more important." #Mets


Ya think Sandy???

Sandy spoke at length today about Mets’ pitching plans regarding starters and facing a lineup after the second time. Clearly bolstering bullpen is a major priority.

Mets going to try to fix what they have re: starting pitching, bolster bullpen, then get some pop for middle of the lineup. Alderson frank about concerns re: Smith and conditioning.

Lagares going to factor heavily into Mets’ plans in cf. it’s kind of a necessity given what resources Mets have to work with.

The only way they get pop for middle of the order would be via trade I'd think, unless he's really thinking 1B.

Go get Adam Jones from Baltimore. Solves the CF and "pop" problem. Maybe try to get O'Day too. They've got plenty of relievers and need SP.

That would seem to conflict with the idea of Lagares playing a prominent role, no?

The easiest path to solve this riddle is to add a 1Bman on a short term deal... However, we know that the FA 1Bmen will all be trying to get multi-year deals at the outset so this spot may not be resolved for a while.

The other side of that one is that they could add pop at 2B/3B.

It's likely gonna be a 1B/OF type. And Sandy mentions Smith conditioning...He won't be handed 1B.

I'm not even sure why any 1B add would have to double as an OFer, esp if they acknowledge that Lagares is in the plans. Suffice it to say they will not assume 1B is done. That's pretty much all they had to say on this.

This could mean Todd Frazier might be someone they'll look at. He'd add some flexibility to the IF. I think he's going to be overpaid tho.

Lagares is going back in the deal.
