MMO Fan Shot: Should the Mets Pursue Alex Rios?

An MMO Fan Shot by yfern328 Now that Texas declined Alex Rios‘ option, should the Mets be interested in Rios on a one-year deal? Something like a Chris Young deal? Although Rios’ drop in power numbers was a bit alarming, he still managed to hit 30 doubles and 8 triples.
