So, shortstop is still on the list of holes the Mets need to fill. As we all remember, Rafael Furcal's name was thrown out as potential stop-gap for the position, but at 36 years old and coming off of a Tommy John surgery, he would not be the ideal fit. He does fit the Alderson mold of buying at a discount, however, and should probably remain on the radar.

The trade market remains a possibility. Tulowitzki remains unlikely to leave Colorado this offseason. Stephen Drew would be a nice addition, but his agent is Scott Boras, and Boras and the Mets brass never play in the same sandbox together well.
Really, it sounds like the Mets are running out of options to seriously upgrade the position, which sucks. I think we'd all like to see the team run a better option out there than Quintanilla and Tejada, but I'm starting to think we're going to see no change this year.
Meet the Meh's.
