    I'll say it again: the Mets need an outfielder that hits righty with some pop and preferably on the cheap. Scott Hairston matches this need 100%. Why aren't we talking to him?

    I'd rather them get one guy that is a decent prospect, but they can swap a minor leaguer for like Familia. A guy off the top of my head is Michael Taylor on the A's. And the other guy a veteran kinda gritty guy like Reed Johnson

    probably because there are other place holders deemed more affordable. Seriously, Hairston was one of our best hitters last year and he won't be coming back? This is sick.

His voice lacks the range of tonal color necessary to make it consistently interesting. Full time consideration of another endeavor might be in order."

    Vlad Guerrero, Johnny Damon and Raul Ibanez. Sadly they are affordable and better than what we have.

    It is ridiculous. I know some people will clown me for even saying this, they'll be like, "It's Scott Hairston, no big deal." But that's precisely my point: here you have a guy that fits your needs and probably isn't asking for much and yet we still don't go after him. Give me a break.

    It really is obscene when you think of it. How much lower can you go when Scott Hairston is deemed too expensive?

    What is Hairston's price? Two years, $12 million? More? What is the breaking point for you between obscene and no thank you?

    The Yankees decided Russell Martin was pricey at 2 years/$17 million. How obscene is that when you think about it? It's the Yankees! Their best option is Chris Stewart.

    The Mets are going to see what price the market sets for Hairston. Then all of will know whether the price is sensible or not.
    "The 90 wins is about challenge. It's about changing the conversation. It's about framing questions for ourselves as to how we get there. So I stand by the notion that we need to get better, and in doing so we need to set concrete goals for ourselves so that we have sort of specific conversations among ourselves about how we're going to get there." -- Mr. Alderson

    I think the Mets should contact the rockies on Dexter Fowler.

    - RHP J.Familia, RHP D.Gee, & OF Cap Kirk for Fowler.

    Lineup:

    1. Fowler-CF
    2. Tejada-SS
    3. Wright-3b
    4. Davis-1b
    5. Duda-LF
    6. Murphy-2b
    7. Cap Kirk-RF
    8. Thole/Right-Hand bat Platoon-C

    Or maybe they think Scott gave them his one lightning in a bottle season and don't want to bother with 6 plus million dollars a year for 2 years.

    I am all for this but did you clone Kirk?

    If Dickey continues to pitch like he did last year, during mid-season you trade him for a legit top notch young prospect, ala the Beltran-for-Wheeler deal.

    You don't trade Dickey for a plug-in or a nice outfielder who's going to play for us for only the next 2 years while we're mediocre (4th place). At this moment, and in the situation we're in, we need to look 3-4 years ahead, especially considering our young pitching arms will be established by then.

    Dickey's value is to be used for the future, not needs for next season's 4th place finish.
    "Beltran for Wheeler" deals are not the norm, also with the new rules that teams trading for a free agent to be not getting compensation picks, 3 month rentals will have even less value. (I know the Giants knew they weren't going to get compensation for Beltran when they traded Wheeler for him, but again that trade was not the norm)
