    How about Dwight Gooden - from high A ball to MLB, then ROY in that same year. Not saying that the Alvarez is that for these Mets, but they can live...

    Look at Judge's AAV - not the full contract. How much are the Yankees on the hook for now and who are they losing to free agency this year? They...

    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.

    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.

    Nimmo, imo, has always been the better player but without the power. But Nimmo's problem has always been staying on the field.

    Conforto will likely get $20M per year for 4 or 5 years from some team not named the Mets. That is an extreme overpay but hey, Boras gets paid.

    probably means Cohen told Theo he would be reporting to Alderson. Steve will never get the right person unless that person reports only to Steve.

    Hopefully the owner sees this and will demand that Alderson stay miles away from baseball operations decisions.
