Cyber Monday Mets Eagerly Await Non-Tender Deadline
Alderson will undoubtedly want to be first in line when the market becomes flush with a plethora of cheap baseball players whom other teams couldn't be bothered to pay. Yes Mets fans, be prepared for a brand new round of bottom feeding...
We've already heard some rumors, to include Chicago White Sox catcher, Tyler Flowers. Flowers, who couldn't manage a .200 batting average in 84 games last season is the obvious choice to backup prospect sensation, Travis d'Arnaud, because the Mets can't be bothered to spend money on an actual backup catcher. Should d'Arnaud fall victim to another injury, fans will be excited to see Flowers as an everyday calamity behind home plate.
As the offseason rolls on, so too does the litany of excuses and explanations as to why the market is overvalued. As a result, expect the Mets to be heavily involved in bringing even more castoffs to Citi Field to round out their roster.
