    It quotes Martino and also says Cohen has instructed the FO to find a way to get Ohtani.

    My biggest fear WAS and I do mean was, that Ohtani would get traded and never make it to free agency. So, this information being out there is VERY smart on Cohenís part. No agent is going to let their play sign before having the opportunity to talk to Cohen. If for no other reason then to drive the price up. That said, I do not expect the Mets to trade for him. They will wait for next offseason and sign him. Imo, the only way Ohtani doesnít sign here is because he simply doesnít want to be here. Cohen will offer the most money, period.

    But if the Angels are out of it by mid-season, the team and Ohtani might want to make an in-season move to a contender, ideally one that wants to sign him long-term. For the team, they'd get a haul vs. a pick (for a 2-way guy like O, they should get 2!); and Ohtani would get a chance at the post-season and perhaps even start his next long-term chapter in the US. Again, it's all really complicated and there are a ton of variables, but there are incentives for both player, the Angels and his future team to do it sooner rather than later.

    I do absolutely think itís possible he gets traded. I just donít think he signs a long term contract without at least involving Cohen

    Yep. It's going to be the story of the summer, especially if the Angels are out of it.

    No because I believe weíll be contenders every year and we can afford the $500M. Those are the 2 reasons I used in my quoted comment for a team to overpay for a trade deadline deal

    Smart move as he would have been a FA after the 2024 season. Now they have him through his age 34 season (age 35 if they exercise the club option for a 5th year) at a solid salary. At that point, they'll presumably be able to move on from him if he's not the same player without having had signed him until 37, 38, or 39 years old.

    Next should be Alonso and when that is done , they will have their 4 key players locked up for awile , Alonso, McNeil, Lindor and Nimmo. Plus Diaz

    Yeah and if Alvarez or Baty have really good rookie years the Mets should do the same with them similar to what the Braves did with Harris, Albies, Strider and Acuna.

    Looks like Vogey lost weight in the offseason.

    Letís see how that translates. Itís always good to see these guys get in better shape but Iím always curious as to how their body adapts at the end of it all.

    Vogey looks good! Gotta respect a guy putting in the work to come into camp at his physical best I hope it translates to more consistency at the dish
