Of the players still unsigned via free agency, who do you wish the Mets would go after?
Mack - First of all, let's look who is still out there -

I would first Blevins a decent 2-year deal and make him my LOOGY. He pitched in 73 appearances for the Mets last year and went 4-2, 2.79. I don't care how old he is. He deserves it and solves the LOOGY slot for two years.
If I can't get Blevins, I would have gone after the right hand throwing Storen. He sort of put his career back together last year for Seattle (19-G, 3-0, 3.44, 0.87) and I wanted him on my mound when the Nats, who gave up on him, come to town. Too late... he signed a one year deal with Cincy.
Past that, I can't consider any every day players until I move either Jay Bruce or Curtis Granderson.
Michael asked –
When I grew up in Ozone Park/Richmond Hill, there were six of us that kept each other from going in the wrong direction.
Louis Sarasy, Bobby Rugan, Norman Shoemacker, Frankie Wolf, myself, and Jimmy Armet were the "gang" we called 'BASS'.
The 6-9 Armet was the pitcher for our softball team that lost less than 20% of the games we played on the hard court at P.S. 62.
Jimmy passed from complications of diabetes on January 1st and joined Billy, who died over 10 years ago.
