I know the Mets have been risk averse in terms of 5+year deals aside from Wright but I see a lot of picking apart of certain possible acquisitions this coming offseason whether it be trade or FA. I understand the Mets have financial circumstances that preclude them from being in the market for franchise player type acquisitions (there are none this offseason) and that every possible acquisition has to be evaluated on price but when does conservative borderline on being too conservative? The fact is that every player besides Mike Trout comes with some kind of risk.
There's that old saying "That the biggest risk is sometimes the one that is never taken". With the way the pitching has evolved the Mets and continues to, perhaps, the Mets might want to be more proactive and less reactive when it comes to acquiring major league talent and not be as concerned with their farm system.
Basically this is a plea for CarGo or Tomas given this team's needs and to hoard less of your prospects.
