    Give me Grilli, JP Howell, or Juan Cruz (or a combination of the two) for the pen to start with via FA.

    I know bullpen arms are bipolar but Cruz and Howell shouldn't cost much and have very good 2012 seasons.

    I would bring back Jeff Keppinger too, he's a solid RH bat that can 1st, 2nd, and 3rd base.

    He hit .325 last season in 385 AB.

    Grilli, Keppinger, Cruz, and Howell screams last place. That is not enough at all considering what we have.

    They are better than what the Mets have currently.

    Did you look at any of their statistics this year?

    Certainly better than Nate McClouth...

    Other teams should leave Keppinger alone. The Rays need as much help on offense as they can.

    That's up to the Rays to decide to keep him.

    If they want him, they'll spend the money to keep him but considering they're the Rays they'll probably let him walk because his services have gotten too expensive.

    They usually find another player to plug into those positions just fine and i only mention it because the Mets need an inexpensive RH hitter who could play 1st and 2nd base.

    Keppinger fits that bill to a tee.

    Catcher: Russel Martin or Nick Hundley
    OF: Alex Rios, Shinn Soo Choo, Chris Young, Jason Kubel, Gerrado Parra, McClouth, BJ/Justin Upton, Corey Hart (we need 2 of these guys)
    Pen: Balfour, Howell, Grilli, Cruz, Peralta

    Haha I think so too. What do you think the Padres would want for Hundley? I'm thinking he wouldn't cost TOO much ya know?

    Yeah good luck in the Mets acquiring any of those guys via trade besides Parra and Hundley with how tight they are on adding payroll this year.

    Hart is better acquired in FA next year because the Mets would have to give up a **** load to get him, that also goes the same for Kubel.

    Yup, lets try to post realistic scenarios.

    Actually, I think Young and Choo are options too. The D'Backs are willing to eat a lot of Youngs salary, and Choo only gets paid about $4Million a year

    I like Chris Young but he is terribly inconsistent with the stick (.309 wOBA on the road isn't particularly impressive either)

    As for Choo, it's a possibility but he's gonna get a raise most likely in arbitration that might be out of the Met's price range.

    The Mets need a RH bat to play 1st and 2nd base.

    Why would Keppinger not be an option?

    They also need a reliever from the right side and a reliever from the left side to tighten up this bullpen.

    And Affeldt is out of the question considering the Mets aren't going to spend that type of money on a reliever.
