We’ve seen a little bit of clarity with the moves that the Mets have made so far. The rotation got a needed boost when Marcus Stroman accepted the Qualifying Offer and the team addressed the catching situation with the signing of James McCann. But there are still several positions or areas to address. You could make a case for needing two starting pitchers, a third baseman and a center fielder. And if Dellin Betances, Brad Brach, Jeurys Familia and Drew Smith don’t fill you with optimism – you could add a relief pitcher, too. It feels odd to have a solid one-two punch at the head of the rotation, a closer with elite stuff – if not always elite results – and a potent offense and still feel like there are so many question marks.
The question has been asked many times about which guy you want the team to acquire. But as we saw with J.T. Realmuto, sometimes the issue gets solved without getting the best guy on the market. Which brings us to today’s poll question.
