    You can bet that will be it. If they get Lyon, they won't pursue anyone else, the Mets never stack their teams.

    Lyon would put Mets' 40-man roster at 40. So Mets may--may--need to open 4 spots by 4/1--for Feliciano, Atchison, Hawkins and Byrd or Brown.
    They are running out of rosters spots..

    It shouldn't be too hard to open up roster spots. I have no idea why they protected Hansel Robles though, unless they plan to fast-track him as a reliever.

    This.

    These are the kind of moves they should have made more of. Marcum and Lyon, neither kill the future.

    Havens is the guy that likely gets dumped.

    14. Hansel Robles – RHP (NR)
    Another Mets prospect I got plenty of exposure to this year, Robles has a heavy sinking fastball that can sit in the low-90s, touching 95 at times. He throws strikes but doesn’t always locate within the strike zone. His slider and change-up enter in the same velocity range, necessitating full development of the movement on both to make them truly effective. He has the potential for a three-pitch mix that induces ground balls and works in the back of a rotation.

    I would dump Hefner first in all honesty, they have pretty good pitching depth, I would hate to lose a Havens or Lagares or even Lutz if they need to make room.

    Yeah swingmen like that aren't particularly valuable when the Mets have all this pitching depth.

    Sandy learned that giving a lot of guarenteed deals makes it hard to hold performance accountable, that's why they made a lot of minor league deals like Hawkins, Achtison, Feliciano, etc
