The Mets have not been public with their list of catching targets, so this is all speculative. When reports came out that Soto was non-tendered by the Rangers, there was some murmurs from Mets blogs, this one included, that Soto to the Mets would make a lot of sense. I still stand behind that. Last night, MLBTR reported that Geovany Soto and the Rangers have agreed to a 1 year deal. The dollar amount is not known at this time. Another non-tender option remains in Jesus Flores, and there are still trade targets the Mets could acquire. It’s difficult to think of what’s next, partially because its 5 AM and I’m not fully with it yet, but more so the comments made by Alderson yesterday points the Mets to the trade market. One interesting item I took from the Alderson press conference was the suggestion that the Dickey situation wouldn’t be resolved this week. The Dickey/Niese trade situation is looking more and more tied to Grienke. The Mets first need to Grienke to sign, this will up the need for a pitcher via trade. However the Mets can’t wait too long though, the Red Sox could move Lester and the Rays could move Shields. Let’s see what happens today! Tweet
