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
Juan Pierre would have fit perfect and cheap where the heck were we on that.
Dickey and Familia for Myers

Vlad Guerrero, Johnny Damon and Raul Ibanez. Sadly they are affordable and better than what we have.
My money is on Ludwick.

New York Yankees
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.

Baseball Maverick: How Sandy Alderson Revolutionized Baseball and Revived the Mets, by Steve Kettmann“The Wilpons and Mr. Saul Katz — the people who say they don’t care about the team are sorely misguided,” Ojeda told the newspaper. “These are the biggest Mets fans you will meet."
I think the Mets should contact the rockies on Dexter Fowler.
- RHP J.Familia, RHP D.Gee, & OF Cap Kirk for Fowler.

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.
