The time to have Lorenzo Cain on your team was between 2014-17 and not 2018-21.

Tough call. A dang shame, Lagares should be the guy Cain is, but he's an injury prone underachiever instead. Very similar skill sets/tools.



Or..... when we drafted him out of high school........



8)

Except we didn't draft him out of HS.

cant believe this team has an owner allegedly obsessed with the Yankees and how much they spend


That's cause he knows there are only 2 outcomes for him because of the Yankees. They will either move the team out of NY, or sell the team. You can't compete against them if they are going to make the playoffs every year whereas your team is competitive 2 out of every 10 years. All those kids who grew up watching Jeter and company will eventually have disposal income and that's when the Wilpon's are going to really feel it.

They will NEVER move the team out of NY. Substantially the entire value of the franchise reflects the market it is in.

According to Nightengale, Hosmer has a 7/147M offer from the Royals (and 7/140 from the Pads)... :shock:

Again, kudos to Scott Boras if so. Sounds like he's gotten 2 teams to bid it out. Can't imagine either team ups those offers, but I'm already surprised so who knows now.

#MLBHotStove >> Hey, @Mets, if Cain, Moustakas and Walker can be had for one-year deals, despite costing $50M, YOU SHOULD DO IT !! Here's why >> goo.gl/CtWHDh #LGM #YGB #UnfinishedBusiness #GOForIT


The capitalization, the random hashtags - Cerrone is losing his mind.

Can't imagine Cain and Moustakas only getting one-year deals. Maybe Walker but even that is a stretch.

Even in my caffeine induced silliness, I cannot imagine Cain and Moustakas getting frozen out into one-year deals.

On the other hand, I don't think Neil Walker has much of a market.
