The following quote appeared in MetsBlog:
“I’ve never operated this offseason to wait and see if a market dropped,” Van Wagenen also declared. “In fact, all of our moves have not been market contingent, they’ve been roster contingent – how do these players fit?”
On one hand it’s refreshing to hear about the needs of the roster being paramount. On the other hand, maybe some market-contingent moves wouldn’t have resulted in a $100 million due to a guy through his age 40 season.
