When the Mets are drafting in 2013, they are thinking about 2018. Do you think the OF will still be an issue by then? We have some promising OF in the lower minors in Lupo, Becarra, Nimmo, Marquez, etc.
And the OF can be easily addressed via FA. Players are always available every year.
Unless you draft Austin Wilson.
But 99% of your post is correct.
