Mets "monitoring the trade market for 2B" is this offseason's edition of "Mets looking at trade market hahahahahhahahahahaha fooled you again!!!", I think.

Anytime a plan in November involves the Mets dipping into the trade market, expect that to end in February with "We really like the options we have, including Jose who's going to come in a compete for playing time."

My honest guess at what happens:

Mets resign Reyes, Mets sign Walker ostensibly for either 1B or 2B and its really Reyes vs. Dom in March for a job (Walker plays whichever other position), Mets sign a LHH OFer who splits time with Nimmo and Lagares in a 3 way timeshare until Conforto returns (Jon Jay?). Walker is the "middle order bat" referenced.

Mets do indeed ink 3 relievers to major league deals - 2 guys are lower money, 1 year or 1 year+option types on bounceback candidates (e.g. Gregerson, Boone LOgan, Siegrist, etc.) and then a bigger name/money guy like Bryan Shaw or Brandon Morrow.

Then 1 or 2 veteran SP/long man types to non-guaranteed deals.

I still don't buy they're going to allocate that much $ to the pen. If they sign one or more RPs, then they will move AJR. They just aren't going to have five $7M+ RPers in the pen.

I still think they have to find a RP by trade who has control years left (Shane Greene?). In fact I'm still going with a Kinsler/Greene combo deal.

Preference is for Cabrera to play 3B. Mets see him as better there defensively. But if they end up finding a better match at 3B, then Cabrera moves to 2B.


This is the way I've been looking at it... pretty much if they can sign Cozart and convince him to play 3B, then ACab moves over to 2B. Heck, I wouldn't be against moving Cabby to 1B. But I hope they deal with him on all this shifting over the winter so there won't be any surprises during the season.

But seriously, I think he could be part of the 1B rotation in '18.

The mere fact they are interested in Santana suggests to me they may be more sour on Smith than simply "not ready for 2018". Then again, only the Mets would sour on a guy, decide to potentially move on and then crap on him to the media thus potentially hurting any potential trade value.


I think Cerrone speculated this could me more about his agent getting the best contract he can from the Indians than the Mets having a legit shot/interest. He may actually be right this time.


Cerrone is a hack. He actually said in the article he commented on that Santana had won a gold glove.

I know a lot of things are just spitballing at this point, but the next proposal I read that doesn't make me throw up in my mouth will also be the first.

Mets gunning for the worst infield in the league.

And the worst pitching 3-5 but don't worry. The bullpen will save them. A deep bullpen was the only difference between the 62 mets and the 2006 mets.

Sources tell @DPLennon and I that the Mets are weighing a pursuit of Japanese star Shohei Otani.
