Was just thinking if the mets had about 10 mill to spend before the Bay and wright deffered money, then now they must have what 18-20 mill or something total to spend?
If they trade Niese to KC for Myers. We in theory have a bonafide superstar power hitting outfielder under our control making almost no money for at least 4 years. He'll make money in arbitration after 4 yrs and maybe theyd wanna sign him longterm which is the trend now, but still they will be paying him nothing for at least 3 years. With Niese gone theres a hole in the rotation. Since we wont have to spend our money on an outfielder if we have myers, we can throw all or most of it on a front line pitcher.
Greinke is too risky with his depression and stuff playing in a big city, but is there any other pitcher out there we can throw money at instead of using john lannan. How bout Kyle loshe did he re-sign? Or they could just totally concentrate on offense and spend on Pyrzinski for catcher and fill out the bench and bullpen best u can with rest of money. CF just hope for the best with what we got or sign a cheap stopgap. Niese isnt making much much even 5 mill added to that total of money to spend goes a long way. They could do offense this yr and wait for a big front line starter next year maybe.
Not as a #1 starter, but to compete for the #5 spot I wouldn't mind if we traded Niese or Dickey.
Pelfrey has either been good or terrible, so if he is terrible than at least this year we have the depth in the minors to replace him.
