    Who can we realistically get:Stanton,Upton or Meyers?

    Out these 3 outfielders who can we really get without the farm system getting raped?

    Stanton-- Proven at the Major league level and make minimum and controllable
    for a few more years

    Upton- Also proven at the Major league level and making a few million more a year and also controllable for a few more years

    Meyers- Not proven at Major league level and make minimum.


    When you break it down like this , you are obviously taking the most risk with Meyers. Prospects like Travis Snider, Adam Lind, Matt Wieters, etc........

    Guys who came in the league and didn't tear it up , like they were supposed to tear it up.

    Realistically i think Meyers is a great situation for us. The difference between Meyers and Stanton is one is proven and the other has to prove.

    I know Stanton will cost us dearly but do we really think Meyers can command the same prospects you would have to give up for Stanton?

    Think Noah Syndergard,Nimmo,Meija and Flores couldn't net us Meyers?

    Why? Realistically we got D'Arnaud and Noah for a 38 Cy Young winner when everyone thought we had no chance to get D'Arnaud.

    Realistically we got Zack Wheeler for an aging outfielder with bad knees for just 2 months of service.

    Realistically R.A Dickey a knuckleballer won the CY Young when previously was dropped by numeruous teams.

    So why cant we realistically can't get one of the outfielders?

    Good thing you don't work for the Mets as our G.M. YoungStuna28, im glad you set your goals high.

    We have the pieces to get them but the asking price will be very high. Think Harvey + d'Arnaud + Syndergaard + other pieces for Upton and possibly even more for Stanton.

    Glad the FO knows not to trade any of their important prospects while in a rebuilding phase.

    LOL and I'm a bad GM. Four high-end prospects for one prospect?

    We can get all 3 without giving up Wheeler, Harvey, Syndegard, or D'Arnaud.

    Not that hard. All we need is force trade in MLB 2k13.

    Why don't we just save ourselves the trouble and make all three 99 overall?

    Nimmo -is years away before he has an impact. Wright will be towards the end of his career by the time Nimmo contributes.

    Flores- really has no position ,blocked at 3rd by Wright. Too slow for outfield and too big for short stop,so where will you play him? No DH in the NL.

    Noah- He is going to be your center piece to build around

    Meija- We are strong at pitching , nice throw in to make it happen.

    If we have a 5 year window where Wright is productive then we need major league players and prospects that can start contributing this year such as Meyers.

    Nimmo isnt that player it will be 5 years before he ges into Majors and Flores does'nt have a position, so cancel them out.

    We can give them a very high end prospect like Noah because im very satisfied with Niese,Harvey and Wheeler for the next 5 years as your #1,2,3 starters.
    Im sure between Montero,Tapia,Familia,Michael Fullmer we can scrape up a #4 and #5 starter, if not theres plent of #4 and # 5 starters in free agency

    Wright
    Davis
    D'Araund
    Meyers

    not bad for #3-#6 hitters.

    Got a better plan Young Stuna28 that you want to keep those prospects?

    You make the statements that prove Myers is a big risk, but still would want to trade all those good prospects for 1 unproven prospect?

    That makes 0 sense.

    If we are trading a package of prospects like that, it's gonna be for an already proven OFer like Stanton or Upton, but for someone like Stanton it would likely take Wheeler+TDA+more

    Pitching depth is great to have and as most people know, you can never have too much.

    Yes, Syndergaard is probably at least 2 or 3 yrs away but that's actually a good thing. You're acting like Harvey, Wheeler, and Synder are guaranteed to be great already and that Niese continuing to improve is a guarantee also.

    You should know that this is no sure thing and what happens if you trade away from "strength" when really none of these guys except Niese has proven anything.... say you trade Synder cuz u think we're strong at SP for the future but then Wheeler turns out to be a dud and Niese had a fluke yr and goes back to his previous 4.50 ERA, 1.40 WHIP yrs like he had previously, now you have a good offense but all you have in the rotation is Harvey and a bunch of mediocre-bad pitchers.....

    Don't think all these young pitchers we have are all definitely gonna be top of the line pitchers. It rarely happens like that where they all work out. But if they do, then guess what, we'd probably have the best first 4 starters in baseball and thats a great way to build a championship team, but it's still likely one or two of them don't end up as good as currently advertised. You just never know.

    We need to continue building a team through young pitching like SF has done and spend money on hitters through free agency.

    A guy like Cory Hart I wouldn't mind trying to sign after next yr. He shouldn't be too crazy expensive either. A would also not mind getting Swisher this yr for something like a 3 yr deal. He's been very consistant and his HR's on Yankee stadium actually project well in Citi Field too, I checked. His power numbers don't see to be inflated because of the stadium he plays at, plus he has a higher SLG and more HR's on the road in his career anyway, and almost the same OPS.
