Well this offseason much like the last 2 had no flexibility in it.
With the flexibility they claim they will have next season, the money will be there to overpay a Corey Hart (that's the guy we could really use in the middle of our lineup over any of the FA this year)
If of course its there.
If Hart is there, which he probably won't be. Banking on sos and so to be there in years to come is foolish.
8 times out of 10 the guy you're so sweet on, you're sweet on for a reason and so is everyone else, enough to be locked up or traded away.
You can't sit back and do nothing every year because the perfect FA isn't there.
FA is what it is, you're buying poor value commodities in an attempt to win more baseball games soon, and if you're not, then you're kidding yourself that doing nothing and resigning yourself to another lost season is somehow smarter.
Tired of this mythology around FA that if you wait around all the right players just fall into your lap, they don't.
And year after year after year the Mets continue to add nothing and go nowhere, people are using past failures as a reason to do nothing, and if anything that's even worse. We're not even ****ing trying any more.
