Should've waited and signed CarGo (the Rockie). Probably could get him easily for a similar deal to Frazier.

Duda's reportedly with the mets in spring training. If A-Gon (A-Gone, LOL) gets hurt I could see it.

I could see that to but if given a choice I would rather sign another reliever and just platoon Flores and Smith.

DiComo makes his first OD Roster prediction.

He has them going with only Nimmo as an OF backup and 8 relievers: the big 4, plus Montero, Robles, Sewald and Matt Purke.

I hope we are still searching for relievers.


He seems to be predicting based off everyone but Conforto being healthy (which won't happen) so I am a bit surprised he has Wheeler in the minors. I would think Wheeler would be in the rotation, Lugo would be in the bullpen and Gsellman and Purke would be in the minors.

The Mets will send a scout to Tim Lincecum’s showcase Feb. 15, outside Seattle. Lincecum, 33, did not pitch in 2017 and last pitched in the majors in 2016 with the Angels.

Just to update- Kernan was the source of this an an hour after posting it, he was told by Mets they will NOT send a Scout after all.

Keeping their track record in tact. No matter the person, I believe we’ve attended exactly one of these “scouts showcases” in the Sandy era: Tim Tebow.

I don't think Duda can just show up and hang out with the team.

They'd have to sign him.

And I doubt they'll pay him a quarter until they're certain they can't get the same production out of Gonzalez for a nickel.

I would hope neither Duda, nor Gonzalez was around by April.

That said, I am not a big fan of bringing Duda back, but I would prefer him 10 times to 1 over Gonzalez.

He may not be able to practice with the team but he can, and apparently did, show up and say hi.

Free agent Lucas Duda was spotted at the camp although he did not participate with the Mets’ players.

Well what else is he going to do at this point until 'free agents camp' gets underway?

Some optimism by @keithlaw on the Mets system.
