Mets Interested In Having A Great Team

If you’ve been paying attention, the Mets seem to be interested in everyone this offseason. If you take those players they’re interested in, you’d have an amazing roster:

C Travis d’Arnaud

1B Todd Frazier

2B Neil Walker

3B Mike Moustakas

SS Amed Rosario

LF Yoenis Cespedes

CF Lorenzo Cain

RF Michael Conforto

Bench Kevin Plawecki, Asdrubal Cabrera, Wilmer Flores, Juan Lagares, Brandon Nimmo

Rotation: Jacob deGrom, Noah Syndergaard, Steven Matz, Matt Harvey, Zack Wheeler

Bullpen: Jeurys Familia, Anthony Swarzak, AJ Ramos, Jerry Blevins, Hansel Robles, Seth Lugo, Paul Sewald

Sure, we are all disappointed the Mets lost out on that bidding war for Carlos Santana and Bryan Shaw, but this is still a terrific roster that required the Mets to open up their pockets to build. 

Throw in Mickey Callaway and Dave Eiland, and you can believe in that pitching staff. And as we saw in 2015, if the pitching is up to snuff, this team can go to the World Series. 

Wait, you don’t believe any of this is going to happen?

    nice thinking!

    I will take that roster yet three year deals for the position player FA signings you suggest would bring discomfort. With the Met’s poverty and NO 2017 PITCHER SIGNED for 2019!

    What is the average age and collective OBP?

    I am not sold on Sewald’s 2017 offerings
    and Robles needs adderall!
    His focus IN tight situations, his location w men on board is such a crapshoot!

    Matz and Wheeler continue mixed results?
    if De Grom needs the DL?

    I pray about Dave Eiland

      That’s not my roster. That’s the one the Mets are showing “interest” in building

      1. Saul's Colorist says:

        I would build around de Grom, Conforto, Rosario, Noah and the other kids they have developed, drafted or acquired via Free Agency or minor league trades.

        Yet Daddio, how would you go about it and of their pitchers who do you want to lock up in multiyear deals by 2020?

        1. metsdaddy says:

          JdG and Rosario are the obvious ones. I’d throw Familia in there too depending on how the years progresses

  2. Saul's Colorist says:

    It was said that if Jake Arietta came to to Mets with a reasonable two year proposition that the Mets would DEFINITELY seriously consider upgrading the roster.
