    I'd rather not sign Hairston at 2 years 14 million, but if we do then whatever.

    I guess I am fine with it.

    I just don't think he can repeat last season.

    Neither sad nor punt. Many of the FAs that have been signed to outrageous contracts are being overpriced. Sandy will not panic and jump in to overspend for mediocrity. He'll get his team assembled by signing and trading wisely. Give him some time.

    When I see what he extracted from the Jays for Dickey, followed by getting a MLB ready righty outfielder who can be an excellent platoon mate for Nieuwenhuis, for Jefrry Marte, a borderline prospect at best, and getting Wheeler for Beltran previously, I have complete faith in Alderson.

    Honestly, I don't have a huge problem with them punting on 2013, as long as they go all in for 2014.

    Michael Bourn on a one year deal. We can trade him mid season for a good young outfield prospect that will be worth much more than any 1st round draft pick we could get.

    i can only assume you're joking since there's no way Bourn will settle for only a 1 yr deal. It's not like he can increase his value greatly during that 1 yr. I'm sure he knows that and he'll be signing at least a 3 yr deal.

    Upton probably will cost way to much anyway... it would be Wheeler plus....

    Would rather get a younger player and see what he can do. I dont see the point of paying Hairston 5mil in 2014 when we will be spending big money in the offseason on bats and actually looking to compete.

    The only reason we would get Hairston is so that our 2013 OF is a little less pitiful looking and maybe eases the fans frustrations a bit in the FOs eyes. I dont see a big enough difference I'd rather savior the money or spend it on someone younger

    Most teams have filled their outfield needs. Nick Swisher is still a free agent, and next year Michael Bourn would be the only good outfield option on the free agent market. So no I am not joking. I assume since you know so much about Michael Bourn, you also know that his agent is Scott Boras, an agent notorious for playing the market in this type of fashion.

    I would even go so far as to say I think the Mets should sign Bourn and Sizemore both to one year deals. We can always trade or get draft pick compensation for Bourn, and if we did trade him, it would be right around the time Grady Sizemore is back from injury.

    In the scenario that the Mets do sign Bourn to a one year deal, we would also have the inside track to extending him with all the money coming off the books after next year.

    Do I think this is something the Mets have to pursue? No, which is why I wrote a one sentence post. Do I think this is an idea worth considering? Yes, just like every outfield option that is out there right now, along with the Jason Kubel's, Scott Hairston's, and Delmon Young's of the world.

    Ellsbury
    Granderson
    Beltran
    Choo
    Cruz
    Pence

    I don't know. To me, it looks like we're going the #Stunametrics route: tank the season as if this is the NBA and we're going for a lottery pick, even though it's not - and draft picks are never a sure thing in the MLB. Move forward with no guarantee that the team will ever be willing to spend, let alone in 2014.

    With Ross off the board Hairston and Rivera are the best of the rest for now...remember Sizemore won't be ready until mid-season. Next option is the salary dump...ASoriano for a middling prospect or two with CHI offering to pick up 26 of the $36m is equal to a Hairston deal...who would hit better? And it wouldn't be a shame if we won 82 games!
