It's really a damn shame. The Mets are the 5th most valuable franchise in the MLB. There is absolutely no reason that they should be priced out of this many of free agents.
This is a huge market. With the foundation that Sandy has set, this should have been a year we filled out the roster by adding 2-3 big time free agents. A few years ago we would have gone out and signed Cano, retained Beltran, and still been able to get a few fillers like Chris Young and Stephen Drew.
This year. We're dumpster diving for the likes of Tyler Flowers... the White Sox backup catcher.
