    Same way we traded Dotel and Cedeno for Hampton just a few years ago
    Yeah, Hampton. In hindsight, those superior Denver schools worked out well for us. They brought us David Wright, the proud papa of Brooks!

    There is no reason to trade for a SP when there are plenty of solid SP available in FA. You talk about it being a young man's game but you want to trade young assets for a 33 year old SP.

    Cohen has told associates, according to sources, he expects to lose about $400 million on the team in his first two years as the new owner.

    The only other person I know who could lose $400 million and not blink is my good buddy FOC .I know that he was initially serious about putting in a bid for The Mets but instead he is focused now on buying the Real Madrid Soccer team and relocating them to Flushing Queens .

    He's crafty like that. Though I think he wanted to be Owner/Player and the Commissioner would not allow that.

    He knows long term he will make his money back. Professional sports teams are not a money losing acquisition. They only are when owners involve themselves with ponzi schemers and take out tremendous debt they can't afford to pay back.

    Cohen doesn't have those problems. You dont become a billionaire 14 times over by making bad business decisions.

    I think Cohen will make smart decisions based on expert opinions and data. However I'm curious how much he'll rely upon his gut, or need to make a splash simply to send the right signal, with his first move or moves. I'm specifically curious about Realmuto. There's a good data-driven article about him and the way in which catchers decline in relation to age in today's Athletic. As much as I'd love the guy for a few years I can't help but think, and it's reinforced by the numbers in the article, that whoever signs him will regret it for the second half of his contract at least.

    What I think may happen is he offers a lot of money for shorter amount of years.

    2021 Mets Prediction

    I see a lot of Mets predicting Bauer, Realmuto and/or Springer. The 3 best players at the 3 position of need. In these uncertain times, without knowing whether fans will be in attendance, it would be absolutely insane to go out and guarantee approximately $225 million to 3 players (and thatís only if Bauer really only signs for 1 year). I donít care who the new owner is. Rather than be impulsive and spend foolishly, why not improve those positions while using their head.

    Trade: Brandon Nimmo, 3B prospect Mark Vientos and IF prospect William Lugo to Royals for C - Salvador Perez and RHP Josh Staumont.

    Trade: JD Davis and RHP prospect Joshua Carnielly to Texas for RHP - Lance Lynn.

    Re-sign: LHP Justin Wilson 2 yrs/$15M, 3B Todd Frazier 1 yr/$3M

    Free Agents:
    RHP - Jake Odorizzi 3yrs/$52.5M,
    CF - Kevin Pillar 3yrs/$30M
    3B - Marwin Gonzalez 2 yrs/$17M
    OF - Domingo Santana 1 yr/$1.5M

    The roster would look like this:
    C - Salvador Perez
    1B - Dom Smith
    2B - Robinson Cano
    3B - Marwin Gonzalez
    SS - Amed Rosario/Andres Giminez
    LF - Jeff McNeil
    CF - Kevin Pillar
    RF - Michael Conforto
    DH - Pete Alonso

    Bench:
    C - Tomas Nido
    SS - Rosario/Giminez
    3B - Todd Frazier
    OF - Domingo Santana
    OF - Guillermo Heredia

    Pitching:
    SP - Jacob DeGrom
    SP - Lance Lynn
    SP - Jake Odorizzi
    SP - David Peterson
    SP - Steven Matz

    RP - Franklyn Kilome
    RP - Drew Smith
    RP - Miguel Castro
    RP - Justin Wilson
    RP - Josh Staumont
    RP - Dellin Betances
    RP - Jeurys Familia
    RP - Seth Lugo
    RP - Edwin Diaz

    This team is way better defensively and way more versatile. The staff will also get Syndergaard back in June, giving them 5-6 starters headed into the summer.
