What’s next for New York Mets after Winter Meetings in the Hot Stove Offsesason.


Thoughts on what the New York Mets did at the Baseball Winter Meetings and what are the expectations for the New York Mets going forward.

My second post on the Daily Stache, I look forward to doing post on this informative site on The New York Mets. My second post is on what the NY Mets did in the Baseball Winter Meetings and what should be the expectations for what the New York Mets will do for the rest of the Hot Stove offseason.

The Mets lost out at the Winter Meetings on Free Agent Ben Zobrist, but The Mets then moved quickly to add Second Baseman Neil Walker in a trade for Left Starter Jon Niese and then added Shortshop Asdrubal Cabrera as a Free Agent Signing, these smaller kind of additions will hopefully lead to some more significant moves down the road for the Amazins. Also what help the Mets in terms of more money for the offseason is the recent retirement of Michael Cuddyer.

Still the Mets need to improve in their to do list: 1. Bullpen Help. 2. Outfield Help. 3. Starting Pitcher. 4. Right Handed bat off the Bench.

In my view, The Mets need to add two relievers to their pen, One Lefty and One Righty in the setup roles as they try and help closer Jeurys Familia.  it will be interesting to see who the Mets get to fill out their bullpen, either in Free Agency or via Trade. The Bullpen is a critical area for the Mets to add on in my view. It is time for The Mets act in this important area to their 2016 Effort.

The next area is looking for an outfielder to fill out the outfield for 2016. Either a left or a right handed hitter, now that Cuddyer has retired it could be two spots open in the outfield. It will be interesting to see who the Mets add to the roster in the Outfield.

Now that Jon Niese was traded to the Pittsburgh Pirates, there is a need to get a Starting Pitcher until Zach Wheeler is available to Pitch. It is important that the Mets fill the fifth starter spot till Wheeler is ready.

The Next position that needs to be filled by the Mets in the Offseason is the opening due to the recent  retirement of Michael Cuddyer. They will be looking for a Right Handed Bat to fill the Cuddyer spot, it is time for the Mets to make some significant upgrades in order for them to maintain their standing as the top team in the NL East with this unbelievable starting pitching.

My next post will be on continuing at the NY Mets Offseason in this important time for the Mets, until the Mets get to Spring Training in February. It is time for the Mets to keep progressing and keep the good times rolling for all of us NY Mets Fans.
