    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 with him continuing to learn hitting if he has the...

    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 probably are close to but not over $200M AAV now. ...

    Wishful thinking perhaps but as a long suffering Mets fan (since 1964) I can still dream. But what that means more than anything is the Mets will likely need a catcher to spend about half the time...

    And Cano will be the second baseman more often than not IF he isn't suspended again and IF the NL does not adopt the DH. McNeil likely be a "most everyday playing" utility man, which is his best...

    I don't see all of those guys but it is possible that it could be Baez or Correa or Bryant or someone else.

    Don't forget Francisco Alvarez as being brought up to catch half the games. Nido is a...

    He also needs to look at the plans for the third basemen in the minors and their expected arrival dates. If he brings in someone to play third, then he might as well trade those top prospects and...

    It could come down to an OR decision - Correa or Baez or Bryant or someone else. I don't see Cohen overeating at the buffet when this team needs pitching also.

    Baty is the next long term third baseman. Vientos might make the Mets at some point next year, but Baty is the better all around third baseman. It means Vientos will likely move to DH at some point...

    Keep in mind that this manager or the analytics staff or the front office lost 5 WAR during 2021, lack of timely hitting contributed to about 5 WAR losses and deGrom not being here for half the year...

    That is correct, the AAV is the important figure in the annual luxury tax calculation. So whether you spend the money this year or backload the contract, if the total contract is the same it doesn't...

    Austerity vs. gluttony, meaning you also cannot hire 15 players all with $34M AAV contracts for 10 years even if the owner can cover it. 15 at $34M is what $510M per year, lol. That won't happen of...

    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 along with Peterson and Megill and maybe a couple...

    At this point I would think Lee could be trade bait as is Vientos and Mauricio, who hasn't shown all that much in the hitting department quite yet.

    Alvarez and Baty are keepers and it is too soon...

    Paul DePodesta, the sabermetrics guru. Please not heading up baseball ops but maybe heading up metrics and the quality team. We need someone who is a proven GM and ready to move to POBO status.

    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, Thor or someone else. Then they might get some...

    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.

    I see at least 2 rookies getting the shot to play regularly for the Mets next year - perhaps Lee, Vientos or Mangum.

    With Lee and Mangum in the fold, and with the defensive improvement of Nimmo in...

    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.

    I don't know about you, but McNeil was never a skinny dude when he first came up. It was very noticeable this year. Does he have a muscle eating disorder? I would have him checked out. He looks...

    No surprise there at all. Whether Michael had a great year or the year he had which was pure ****, his goblin of an agent (who abhors the Mets) would demand he go out in the open market.

    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.
