I took a poll in late September and I left if up. I Asked Who the Mets Should Trade This Off-Season? Of the Many that Voted, many seemed that Johan Santana should be the logical choice to be traded.
So Much for the 1st Mets No-Hitter, LOL !
I Agree with the fans, I think the Mets should trade Santana and his salary for other parts.. I think the Mets will Look to trade Lucas Duda and/or Daniel Murphy (because his value is up). Murphy can be replaced by Jordanny Valdespin, who is playing winter ball at 2B.
If the Mets don't come to agreements with either Dickey or Wright this off-season maybe the Mets make a big slash by trading one or booth of them, but expect the Mets to make the safe move and let them play out their final year until the trading deadline.

JOHAN SANTANA, LHP
PRESEASON EXPECTATIONS: The only thing the Mets knew for certain about Johan Santana heading into the season is they would pay him $24 million. Coming off shoulder surgery and not having started since Sept. 2, 2010, the most the Mets could hope for was for him to stay healthy and start at least 15 games. Anything above that would be considered a bonus.
According to Chris Walendin of tgpMets, Mets minor league pitchers Zack Wheeler, Chris Schwinden and Darin Gorski are among many players in the Mets organization that are currently eligible for this year’s Rule 5 Draft.
The following players comprise the complete list:
Triple-A Buffalo Bisons
Double-A Binghamton Mets
Catcher Rob Johnson is a free agent after being removed from the Mets' 40-man roster, Adam Rubin of ESPNNewYork.com reports.
Johnson, 30, appeared in 17 games for the Mets this year plus 45 contests for their Triple-A affiliate.
R.A. DICKEY, RHP
PRESEASON EXPECTATIONS: R.A. Dickey had been a journeyman with a trick pitch his entire career, winning a career-high 11 games in 2010. Realistically, they had no right to expect more than that from him at age 37 and figured to be third or fourth in the rotation at best. Only injuries or poor performance from others could elevate his status, and was why he was in...
JONATHAN NIESE, LHP
PRESEASON EXPECTATIONS: Jonathan Niese was another Mets pitcher who went into spring training coming off an injury. He pulled a right rib cage muscle in Sept. 2011, while pitching against the Phillies and was shut down. Two years earlier, Niese’s season ended with a severely pulled hamstring. While the Mets weren’t worried about his arm, two muscle pulls had...
The Mets say they have the funds to re sign David Wright and R A Dickey this off season. Well as a Met fan your happy that at least they can try to retain Wright and give Dickey a well deserved raise. This is partially due to the fact that the hapless Wilpons don’t have to spend mad $4 paying off the Madoff debt . Well my question is this. If this is true, and lets just say this was resolved a
Here is a complete breakdown of what the Mets have to deal with in the off-season. The Mets 2013 Payroll is expected to be around $100 Million.

R.A. Dickey is offering a 30 minute pitching lesson for a great cause!
Baseball fans looking to learn the knuckleball will have a chance to be taught by the best in the business. R.A. Dickey will offer a 30 minute pitching lesson in which all proceeds will go to Shannon Forde, a long-time New York Mets employee that was diagnosed with stage IV breast cancer. The package will also...
It’s easy to look at Jeremy Hefner’s 5.09 ERA and 4-7 record and conclude that it was not a very good year and that the Mets might look to upgrade his spot for 2013. But Hefner did a fine job in his role and not only should he be back next year, there are legitimate reasons to think he was undervalued by most fans and analysts out there.
One of the difficulties in evaluating...

I have come to the conclusion that anyone who buys a season ticket package for the 2013 season, is a schmuck.Mets fans? They’re not schmucks. People who choose to go to a Mets game in 2013 might be enabling a clueless, toothless and fraudulent ownership whose only being kept in place because the CEO is a close personal friend of the CEO.
