    What is so Mets-like would be if they "elevate" Robinson Cano to player-manager. Heck, they need to pay him anyway so they might as well get...

    Cohen paid $2.4B (reportedly) for the Mets. He in no way just gives $240M to a POBO. Maybe there is some vesting at maybe $10M per year that...

    The bullpen ought to be ok but they do need another closer - Diaz is ok if not overused. And Loup needs to be re-signed.

    Forget Lucchesi for 2022. He had TJ in mid 2021 and will probably be rehabbing for most if not all of 2022. Yamamoto is a 5th starter candidate...

    They will need to get creative. I believe the Mets will sign 2 players in the $20M to $25M AAV range. That is likely to be 1 or 2 of Baez, Stroman,...

    It won't be easy to find a POBO especially if Cohen doesn't state emphatically that Alderson is "removed" from all baseball operations decisions.

    That's right, but the Dodgers could promote Byrnes so that it is equivalent to a lateral move and thereby prevent the Mets from talking with him.
