I am very much here for Carlos Gomez as a Met this year. I hope it works out. Curious if he stays behind in Extended and gives them time to sort things out, as I simply don't see how he can fit given other relative "locks" but I also don't see him having not commanded at least some degree of opt-outs as a veteran of his stature (if Rajai Davis has an end of spring opt-out, surely Gomez is not locked into Syracuse all year).

Maybe an opt out by June 1st or something to that nature?

Gomez, Lagares, and Broxton playing in the outfield at once would be a lot of fun to watch.

I think I am alone in saying this does not please me unless Lagares is on the block. Then if a trade saves money to sign Gio, I am okay with it!

Otherwise, not sure how this one squares up.

Edit: Rajai Davis has to be thinking to himself, "what the crap...another guy...?"

I'm kind of with you on that. Not that I mind 4 or 5 guys competing for a 5th OF spot that maybe doesn't exist, but it feels like overkill.

That said, their competition for 6th starter is beginning to feel under addressed. Buchholz was probably the guy to get based on what he cost and potential benefit. But, it is what it is. Fingers crossed on #4/#5 starters.

This is a deal to give an old farm hand a chance to showcase himself in spring and AAA.

And sometimes it's an overture to an agent... Boras in this case.
