Stroman and Bryant.

With Baty and Mauricio ready to come up I don’t think Bryant are in their plans. SS is locked up for the next 4-5 years. Move McNeill back to 2nd and  Escobar at 3rd or vise-versa. Baty or Mauricio takes over 3rd in  ‘23 with the other going to 2nd or outfield. 
Alvarez behind the plate and we’re ready to roll.

Wow... it's as if the new GM watched "Money Ball"! Thanks for the info.

Canha’s .377 OBP over the last three seasons (2019–2021), is the second-highest mark in the AL.

Under Cohen, you know that the Mets will probably be the most driven analytics team in the future. It is how his hedge fund business is run. They started adding resources to this unit last year, but I know they are making lots of new hires.

Again, congrats Mets Fans on Scherzer.  He's a special one.  He's my favorite baseball player since David Cone.  

As a Nats Fan I am doubly sad about this.  Didn't want to see him traded, even if I understood the business side, and now I am crushed he'll be playing for a division rival the next three years.

I know Baseball is like that, I get it, but meh.  Great for you, sucks for us Nats Fans.
 

Scherzer and DeGrom back to back.  Dear lord....

I would trade you either one straight up for Juan Soto.

Don't stress, if past is future, the Nats won't be able to resign him, and he'll walk somewhere for big $$$.

So if you have the cash, you likely can have him.

What I was referring to, I'm an old guy.  I've been around for 16 WS championships...if I don't see another one, I'm fine with that.  So, if your post meant only about the money being spent, sure.  But, spending money isn't the key to winning championships or the Yanks would have more than 27 championships.  What it does for the Mets is perhaps being a perennial contender and I can agree with that.  What I'm more concerned about is having the Jets win a SB and I don't see it with the years I have left.

Fair enough. Of course that's what I was referring to. 

I hope you live long enough to see ten Jets Super Bowls.
