...by getting rid of Eric Young.
See, yesterday, Eric Young won the stolen base title, making it the third year in a row that a Met has won an individual award.
2011 Jose Reyes (Batting title)
2012 R.A. Dickey (Cy Young)
2013 Eric Young (Stolen base title)
Since we let Jose Reyes go to free agency and then traded away RA Dickey, it's only fitting that Eric Young not return for 2014. At this point it would be just wrong and unfitting to bring back a title winner.
Not sure if he is under contract for next year. If not, they let him walk. If he is, they trade him.
But whatever they do they CANNOT bring him back!
