Anyone Calling Mets Offseason A Failure Is Clueless

So, the Mets didn’t get Trevor Bauer. Instead, Bauer went to his hometown Los Angeles Dodgers for what might’ve been less money. Despite Bauer really not being better than the Mets fifth best starter, the over the top criticism started:

This is just scratching the surface of what we find at the bottom of the barrel. For their sake, you hope this is just schtick because these are purely horrid opinions.

Yes, we all know the Mets didn’t get Bauer, J.T. Realmuto, or George Springer. Instead, they got better players and a much deeper roster. In fact, just look at who they signed/acquired so far this offseason:

That doesn’t include interesting depth options like Jerry Blevins, Jerad Eickhoff, Jose Martinez, Mallex Smith, Jose Peraza, and Arodys Vizcaino. There are other moves made on top of that.

We’ve also just learned with the Bauer bidding the Mets have at least $40 million they can invest in the 2021 team. It can also be used to extend players like Michael Conforto, Lindor, Stroman, and Noah Syndergaard.

If someone can take a look at that and what the Mets can still do, and say to you this is the same old Wilpon run Mets, they’re either lying, trying to get attention, think you’re gullible, have no idea what they’re talking about, or some mixture of these.

Make no mistake, this has been a phenomenal offseason. Yes, we can quibble with a move or two, but in the end, calling this anything but a success is dumb. Really, the people pushing these narratives really know better.

Well, at least they should. They should because it’s absurd to think adding a top five player in the game on Lindor on top of everything else they did is disappointing or a failure. It’s really beyond absurd.

This has been nothing short of a great offseason. Arguably, it’s among if not the best the Mets have ever had.

    Well said. This has been a good, if imperfect start. They have accomplished a lot so far and if you underestimate SC you do so at your own risk.

    Rome wasn’t built in a day. We all want immediate gratification but this is clearly headed in the right direction so ignore the negative people, they just want to ruin your day. The best is yet to come.

    The Mets have had a good off seasons so far. The miss’s in a couple of case were wise moves. Yes JT was the top catcher but at first he was going for what was it $200 million did not want to talk so the Mets moved to the next best James McCann. As for Springer it appears he kept moving the Goal post for higher & higher deal Mets were not going to play his game they set what there target salary was which was a fair offer. As for Brand hand he did not say it yes the Mets & Nationals offer were close to the same but I am guessing here he wanted to be the only closer which with the Mets it would have been a shared job. Now for Trevor Bauer I think he was just using the Mets for what they did not want in a bidding war. He did a great job that it was covering I want either the Dodger or Angels the whole time. Mets had there offer out there its reports about 3+ weeks. still milking it. be I thing he was also egging on the Angels about the story of him not getting along with Micky Callaway hoping the Angels would more quickly to fire him so they could jump in. when they didn’t his next games was playing that it would be the Mets just to get the Dodgers to give him his Goal all along to become the highest Paid Pitcher he is know drastically Over Paid.! Think he just played the Mets as suckers. I don’t think he is as good as his ego believes he is. Good Luck Dodgers when he flops for you. To get back at the game the Dodger were playing lets sign Justin Turner for 1or 2 yrs with options for second & third if its for a year if it for 2 years give two option years.
