    For whom will the Mets surrender their 2nd round pick, which will be a pretty high one in a deep draft.

    I am just happy they got the 1st pick protected because although it's not stated publicly I think it was of utmost importance for the Mets to keep that pick.

    Otherwise our biggest offseason acquisition might have been Peralta or Arroyo. That could still happen but I think that pick and the allotment will give them more incentive to find higher profile FA.

    Hopefully for Choo. Get Peralta(no QO), Johnson(no QO), and trade for an outfielder like Rasmus, Cespedes, etc.

    Mets are discussing whether they are willing to forfeit a 2nd-round pick for any players who received a qualifying offer.

    I agree Drew is most likely, although I would have preferred Ellsbury.

    I would not mind Drew, but I think he might get 3-4 years and that smells of a similar fate than Castillo. I much rather they sign Peralta.

    I don't think they'll target Drew unless Peralta is gone, and there aren't any trade options. He's not a guy for whom I think Sandy would want to give up a pick.

    Kendry Morales would be the one I would target, even with Boras as an agent he will fall behind Napoli for those seeking a 1B and well behind those looking for a bat.

    He is all we need to protect Wright, something that Davis/Duda haven't done in three years. Both have options available and can be sent down and if Boras dawdles we can walk away.

    I personally don't like Morales enough to give up a pick and over pay.

    Morales isn't even that good. Go with the upside of Davis who is under 30 and cheap.

    Davis sucks, he needs a change of scenery and needs to be traded for another guy who needs a change of scenery.

    Morales isn't worth the pick.

    I'm not convinced Davis needs a change of scenery. He's just been inconsistent up to this point. This year his plate discipline was excellent overall, but his BA was still low and his power was fluky low as well. He was going to the other way nicely before getting hurt, and his power was back. I'd rather deal Duda right now.

    I'm not trading Davis for platoon outfielder like Matt Joyce, and who knows if the Rays would even make that deal?
