I wonder how that contract shakes out and different stipulations with the Covid restrictions.

New owner...Cohen... In the off-season, call the pads offer to take Machado and take Myers, cut Cano and move McNeil to where he should be. Sign Realmuto, Springer and a starter. A ton of money but just dreaming of a Alonso, McNeil, Rosario, Machado IF, Nimmo, Springer, conforto OF and Realmuto behind the plate.

How long have you been a Mets fan? :D

Can the new owner also fire Brodie? Worth more than any single acquisition imo.

And sucks that Betts is gone. Honestly, I think that the barring any massive revenue shortfalls, the new contract doesn't seem that crazy...

Second, but the above is a pipe dream that would never happen way too much money taking on and still leaving holes in the rotation and pen. I would like to see the Mets take the Dodgers model invest heavily in scouting and people, use their financial might to get great assets by attaching a bad deal from the other team. Similar to what Brodie should have been doing trading for Diaz while taking on Cano and sending Corey Oswalt as the center piece not Kelenic and Dunn

It will be nice when saving a few bucks isn't a consideration in every deal. Also, buying your way out of a mistake.

And keeping your own talent. Instead of having to pick which one to pay; Wright/Reyes, Degrom/Wheeler, Conforto/Noah...etc.
