Mack Stuff - 2013 Outfield


MLB Reports ‏@MLBreports - So Mets will have a starting OF of Duda, Nieuwenhuis and Baxter for 2013?

The Upton signing takes one of the top two OFers off the FA market. Michael Bourn will be next to go, not to the Mets. In other news, Adam Rubin reported that Sandy Alderson said that he expects to fill in the 2013 roster with free agents, not trades, and the emphasis will be on outfielders. Help me out here… with compliments to MLBTR, here’s the FA tracker for free agent outfielders:

Rick AnkielCFNo

Wil Myers!

I'd LOVE for the Mets to get Myers parting with DIckey.

But I'd also love for Sandy to give the Rockies a call and see what it would take to acquire Tyler Colvin. I'd love him in a Mets uni.

I think signing Wright to a 140 million contract is insane.

I think if you could get a young outfielder like Myers for Dickey and you pass it up...you should be fired.

I love this...getting Myers for DIckey would be incredible. A trade like that could be huge for the team, filling an obvious need on the cheap, and potentially adding a long-term, cost-controlled, and elite player. Getting Myers for Dickey opens up the possibility of the Mets adding another high-quality hitter as their prospect depth would not be depleted and his salary is essentially 'free'.

if they pulled this off, they still have $10mil to spend on another outfielder

Problem is, I don't think the royals would do it.

$10 million? Justin Upton is scheduled to make $9.75 million next year...do the Mets have the pieces to make a deal with Arizona?

The heart of the Mets lineup for the next few years would be Wright, Upton, Davis, and Myers. I can dream, can't I?

If u can get myers for dickey and get a outfielder with the money saved from dickey. Then trade mejia or familiar for a catcher that's in minors but major league ready now u have a competitive team. Also we still have wheeler,montero,fulmer and the other young pitchers wow now im getting getting excited.
