    Makes perfect sense. I always knew he was a “Dick.”

    Stroman, Gausman, Gray, and Rodon. Not many solid options left without exploring the trade market. We need to sign two of these guys, hopefully Stroman and one other.

    Assume we won't go after Robbie Ray become of the QO he received

    If Trump can become president with no political background then I don't understand why I need a resumé

    Eduardo Escobar 2 years 20 mil. There's our first meaningful signing, although not sure how I feel about it yet.

    I would, but it's gonna take more than that. Probably more than we'd want to pay. They'll likely want Mauricio or Baty, along with Matt Allen to start talks.

    Escobar has never been known for his defense. However, he has got better over the years. I think he will be fine at 3B, which is where I'm guessing the Met have him pegged for.

    If go strictly by DRS, Escobar is about the same defensively as Kris Bryant. Both had -5 DRS in 2021, but Escobar was 0 DRS in 2020 and -1 in 2019. Bryant on the other hand was +2 DRS in 2020 and -2 DRS in 2019. 2021 was on both players.

    Of course, Bryant is the better hitter. But $20M for two seasons. You can't beat that. I hope the Mets have an option for the third year.

    The option is Baty.

    Well if we resign Baez, WTF are we doing with Baty, Mauricio, and Vientos? All of whom could potentially be ready some time in the 2022 season... At least one of them will likely be traded by the 2022 trade deadline I think.

    None of those players will be ready in 2022. The guy who is the closest is Vientos, and he just got a cup of coffee at Syracuse last season.

    So what is the problem. If owned a house and a relative died and left me their house, and btw, they had more than one house. What am I going to do with all those houses. Hint, sell them, rent them, whatever. If I had a nice car and a relative or two died and left me their cars WTF am I going to do with all those cars. Silly question. Isn't that a good problem to have!!

    Beaz doesn't play 3B, and both Baty, Vientos, and Mauricio have never played 2B. The question that should be asked is one in relation to Escobar. But his contract will be finished in two years. Moreover, Escobar can play 3B, 2B, and 1B. Oh, I forgot, with the DH Baez, Escobar, heck anybody, can DH.

    Additionally, I think there is a growing concensus that one of Baty, Vientos, and Mauricio will be packaged in a trade.

    I don't see a problem at all.
