With a weak free agency, does Cohen want to make "His" mark? With Alderson and the ability to actually spend money now, it's going to be interesting to see how they approach fixing the holes on this team. Realmuto makes far too much sense and should be a priority, but how they round out the rotation and bullpen is also going to be interesting. Mets have a lot of holes, some real interesting pieces and an owner willing to spend.

Like everyone I love Bradley's glove, those two weeks he's on fire at the plate are awesome, but do the Mets want another Lagares type CF?

signing realmuto, hendricks, stroman, and bradley jr/marisnick is making his mark.

also trading for lindor.

Trading who for Lindor? I thought Lindor was a free agent. He just made some comment about the Indians having enough money to resign him.

I guess the Mets are going to become the Evil empire now! I've been waiting on this for decades, I'm still in shock that Cohen bought this team.

Realmuto is someone they have to go all in for. We also need some help with our starting pitching. It was so sad to see Matz's downward spiral this year. With Thor coming back, this team needs a solid #3 and 4 guy. I'm assuming they'll probably try to resign Strowman which would be great.

Reports say that Cohen's first order of business is going to be spending a lot of money on shoring up the scouting and analytics departments. Also, Sandy is a - how shall I put this? - thrifty spender, i.e. he'll spend the money wisely. I think that includes going in for Realmuto. The Phillies tabloids are already getting on their front office for not ensuring the team got an extension from JT in the trade.

I've been reading some of those articles on them "rolling the dice" on trading for JT without a commitment from him to extend.

Curious what do you think is going to happen to Brodie? I'm still upset about the Kelenic trade, he looks like he's going to be the real deal and should make his debut in the bigs this upcoming season. Granted, Cano had a good bounce back year and Diaz also looked very good but Kelenic's potential looks scary. Imagine Conforto, Smith, Nimmo, ALonso and Kelenic moving forward with other promising young guys like Gimenez. That lineup could be the very best in baseball in a couple seasons.

With Cohen at the helm, I'm assuming they're about to lock up Conforto to big money and rightfully so.

cohen making sure he doesn't get rejected

1. pleasing baseball heads by bringing back sandy if hired
2. paying the entire citifield staff money they lost due to not working this year, as well as christmas bonus.

so baseball can't so no to a man that'll not only bring back a well respected man but doing a good thing by paying his people.

The fact that he's not JRod means he's getting approved but those two things help.

He did. He said the Law Dept. will not stand in the way. Tweeted it out in the last 30 minutes.


First order of business is whether to offer the QO (18.9 mil) to Stroman. They only have a few days to decide or they don't get a compensation pick if he leaves as a FA.

Let Stroman's ass walk.

I'd prefer short, high AAV deals for Morton and Kluber. And if we're really thinking of s[ending money, I'd prefer Bauer. He has a **** you attitude and I think with Syndergod there would be some swagger to us.

I think we can expect to go after and sign one of Bauer, JT Realmuto, or Springer.

Problem with Bauer is his attitude. Someone in The Athletic suggest they need to speak to DeGrom if he's okay with it. Supposedly Gerrit Cole has a frosty relationship with him.

Also Bauer said that he only wants to do 1 year deal... that was before his career year and about to land a nice 5-6 year deal. So who knows.
