But I would wager a gentleman/ladies bet that the next good Mets team doesn’t happen until well after deGrom has signed his big FA contract elsewhere (Philly?).

You really have to cash in with deGrom and Syndergaard while you can. Those are legitimately the only 2 chips that will get you a haul in return. Or pretty much anything for that matter.
I don't think you have to worry about Cespedes because nobody is touching that contract. Mets will just have to rid that one out with him on the shelf half of the time.

As you like to say, when dealing with this rotten bullpen the more guys you go to eventually are going to find someone who isn't going to have it. And of course Blevins did not have it.
