I am sorry, but I read the required contract will be multi-year at around 12-15 million per year.

It will not be wise for the Mets to be tied to an aging speed based player. There was a decent free agent article that documented the move as generally unfruitful.

Juan Pierre is 35 and he's still stealing bases.I'll take Bourn for 5 years for the right price.

This trade also frees up 31M that would have been spent on Dickey over the next 3 years, so I would not be surprise if they make that type of move.

Why did we make this deal if we weren't high on Gose? I think Ross would be much more logical as a free agent target

Why would the Mets sign Michael Bourn? Give Bourn 15 million a year for 5 years to still finish in 4th place. The Mets don't have the pieces to put around Bourn or Wright. We don't have a MLB corner outfielder on the roster and the bullpen is a mess. The Mets will build the farm system and MLB roster up and then pickup a big time free agent or 2 to fill out the roster. The Mets after next season don't have alot of payroll commitments besides Wright. Be patient Mets fans and let Alderson build this thing the right way.

Are the Mets definitely getting Gose?

If they are, and believe Gose is ML ready, what about in Gose in CF, Bourn in LF and a power bat in RF. It may save Bourn's legs a bit and would have a lot of speed at the top of the lineup. It would also greatly improve the outfield defense.
