Who’s ready for another Mets offseason? Well like it or not, here it comes. This particular offseason has already got me feeling a little edgy compared to past ones since Sandy Alderson took the reins. I wasn’t really expecting much before and I knew we were dismantling and rebuilding even though Sandy would never say as much.
However, this is the offseason I’ve been waiting for… This is the one where we’ve been conditioned to believe that all the bad parts would be replaced, some new stars would be signed, and our top prospects would have arrived. That would lead up to our first winning season in 2014. So yeah, I’m nervous… I don’t want to be let down. Although we’ve had our ups and downs, I’ve trusted Sandy so far, but now it’s time for him to deliver.
With that in mind, it appears that two veterans or holdovers from the past regime are frequently mentioned as potential trade chips as the Mets look to fill offensive gaps throughout their lineup. I’m talking about Jon Niese and Dillo
