2023 Season

Yankees

If I were Yankees I would be real careful with deGrom talks. Steve Cohen has proven he will not be outbid and who knows if Yanks piss him off he may re-sign deGrom and then make Yankees pay ultimate price by landing Aaron Judge. 1 thing last off-season proved with Scherzer signing is that what Steve Cohen wants (whether it is a player or a valuable piece of artwork) he will NEVER be outbid.


Signing

If the Mets sign Senga it does not mean they are not signing deGrom but likely means no Bassitt AND deGrom. I would think a rotation of Scherzer, deGrom, Senga, Carrasco and Megill/Peterson could happen
 
Also IMHO if you lose Nimmo Adam Duvall as a free agent could be a good Plan B with maybe JD Martinez FA as a DH
 
Just a thought

Thoughts

With Nimmo being a free agent I certainly hope Mets sign him but I think a Plan B for OF could be Joc Pedersonor or Adam Duvall. They could also pursue Trea Turner for 2B and move McNeil to outfield with Marte in CF and Canha in corner OF position. With Vogelbach back might be worth it to pursue a righty dh like maybe Brandon Drury.
 
Pitching-wise you want to sign deGrom but should he leave both Rodon and Tyler Anderson are reasonable fits as well as Seth Lugo who is a free agent. Bridge to Diaz in pen right now has Drew Smith would like them to re-sign both Ottavino and Lugo--Trevor May not so sure.
 
And depending on rotation, right now only Scherzer, Carrasco, Megill and Peterson in the fold--deGrom and Bassitt are my first choices but even if both return I would still add Rodon to provide depth and of course consider Taijuan Walker's return if it fits in the budget.  I would like Megill and Peterson to be multi-faceted as they could be used as starters or relievers but to do that you need pitching depth.
 
As far as Alvarez is concerned, my hope is get him more time at AAA before making him either as DH and/or C
