That would be a D- offseason.

 I don't see it. I think you are being too pessimistic. 

Gotta think Jerry/Rick go into this offseason looking to make up for their mistakes this year. They have the team to win and they know it now. 

Great point.  For so long before and after our WS win, we've gotten the shitty to mid-level signings but after 2005 when Jerry knew we had the team to win, he spent abut $30m more in 2006 to try to run it back.  Hope he has that mindset now.

He also knew they were going to have huge attendance in 2006. 2021 is literally the opposite end of the spectrum.

They don't need Vaughn unless the DH stays for good. It would take Kopech and Cease. But if you did it, have them pay down DeGroms salary by 12 million and use savings to sign Bauer as well. 

Degrom

Bauer

Gio

DK

Who cares

It would suck to have those guys come back and bite us, but unlike the other trades we make, we are getting a HOFer in return. Tatis trade sucks because we got hot garbage back. 

Unlikely Degrom will be going anywhere.  Mets under new ownership and the expectation is that new owner will be spending where they are one of the highest payrolls year in year out.

Maybe the owner will be smart and have a firesale prior to spending big bucks. That team needs a rebuild.

By the sounds of it he will be the wealthiest MLB owner by a wide margin and you can expect he will spend whatever is necessary to get Bauer.

Mazara and Collins for Benintendi.

Resign McCann.

Sign Bauer

Bring up Vaughn as DH and let let's see what he can do.

Leury and Engel stay. Maybe Dyson as well.

Renteria gets replaced.
