Trivia Friday: Mets Who Have Returned This Season

One of the themes of this offseason has been Sandy Alderson going out and bringing back some players to help this current team try to win a World Series.  We have seen these efforts work in the past with the Mets bringing back Bobby Bonilla in 1999 and Endy Chavez and Pedro Feliciano in 2006.  We have also seen these efforts fail miserably like when the Mets brought back Roger Cedeno and Jeromy Burnitz in 2002.

Where this season falls on the spectrum is still to be determined.  Those results will largely depend on those players the Mets have brought back to the team.  Can you name them?  Good luck!

    Invigorating as usual yet as crosseord puzzles at makor newspapers easier than usual being that the quiz was on a Friday.

    I watch MLB Trade Rumors daily and I hope that their is activity for Lucas Duda.
    As you may know Lucas turned down nearly $30M for 2016/2017/2018 leaving him $15M to make up this year to equal the Mets last offer.
    I wish him well yet it seems AL only possibly platoon DH for LD has in an equivalent of three full seasons averaged .7 DWAR and has a lifetime WAR way south of 10.
    Yet there is no reason to doubt that with a short porch and the unque wind blowing out at Yankee Stadium that with less than 200 ABATS there 25 HRs at home is under ideal circumstances within reach.
    LD may be able to take the load off a starting first baseman of outfielder and maybe he can take his laid back nature and with a shorter flight to Tsiwan, Korea or Japan resurrect his career to get a nuce offer back in the states.
    Maybe Nelson Figueroa can be a possible sounding board for Taiwan….
    They have a great night market in Taipei and the Stinky Tofu is world class…
    Singapore, Japan, Phuket, Bali are so close…. great fallbacks for a young family…
    Is he married?

      1. Yankees don’t have room for Duda
      2. He’s too good to have to go to Japan to resurrect his career.
      3. He’s not married.

  3. LUCAS DUDA : He’s too good to have to go to Japan to resurrect his career says:

    You are correct, Seattle or KC should keep Lucas in the MLB 2018.

    He is loved in KC…

    1. metsdaddy says:

      Too soon

  4. Gothamist says:

    Too soon…

    Has to wait for a spring training waiver, cut, trade or reassignment to get on the 40 or 25 man roster…

    Am I correct, Daddio?

    1. metsdaddy says:

      Duda?

      He has to be signed before even getting to that point.

  5. Gothamist says:

    I disagree I can not inagine at his market value a cat and mouse game to reduce his contract value. Though you argument makes sense. With his pedigree mine is counter intuitive yet Dudes has shown to value himself, be patient and hold for what he sees is rightfully his..

    1. metsdaddy says:

      We can dicker over what contract he should get. Bottom line: Duda is a MLB starting caliber player

  6. Gothamist says:

    Is he worth much more than Grandyman?

    1. metsdaddy says:

      I think Grandy provides more to a team than Duda. However, Duda is younger.

      It’s debatable

  7. Gothamist says:

    I understand that each team may value a player differently.
    Yet Grandy at $5 M then in your view Dudes at $ m?

    1. metsdaddy says:

      I look at it this way.

      Alonso got a two year deal with an $8 million AAV.

      Mitch Moreland got a two year deal with a $6.5 million AAV.

      Using those as a basis Duda should be in the $7-$10 million range depending on contract length.

      1. Gothamist says:

        I hope you are correct.

          Time will tell
