The question is what decrepit veterans are going to fall into their price range and get undeserved unlimited playing time?

Nope. But I don't see this team really contending without one.

Bring Harper in to be full time catcher/platoon OF. Sign him early and let him work all off season at it. He was a catcher when he was drafted. He probably misses it.
Then we can sign Machado and put him at SS, move Rosario over to 2b, put McNeil at 3b, move Frazier over to 1b, put Smith in the OF, make one of Nimmo/Conforto hit right handed from now on, then trade Bruce for Kevin Keirmaier and convert him to a pitcher and put him in the pen as the closer. Aside from signing two high profile players, this sounds like a very Mets plan to me.

One thing to remember is that they had an historically bad June (5-21). Not even the 62 Mets had as bad of a full month of play. Had they played "as well" in June as they had in May (10-18), this would be a .500 team. Not great baseball by any means, but certainly not Marlinesque either.

Whatever resources they have should be funneled to acquiring some more reliable bullpen arms. I am in agreement with the faults pointed out about Nimmo, Conforto, Rosario, etc., but every player has flaws and nearly every lineup has it's question marks. The Mets have been a much more entertaining team to watch since the ASB. They are poised for the next step, hopefully a forward one

They were one of the more active teams last year in FA, signed Cespedes to some massive AAV contracts, and will have most of Wright's and Cespedes' salaries covered by insurance next year. Plus, they don't really have any guaranteed contracts beyond 2019 outside of a year of Bruce, Cespedes, and arbitration guys.

I know it's the easy joke to make, but the Mets have shown an inclination to add pieces when contending and have the financial freedom to give out a big deal.
