Mets News: A-Gon Is A Met!

The New York Mets have come to terms on a one-year deal with five-time All-Star first basemen Adrian Gonzalez. Terms have not been disclosed, but I believe he will get the league minimum at $575,000. The Braves will be on the hook for $4.5 Million. He is 35 years old going into his 15th season. He will provide veteran leadership for the younger players like prospect Dominic Smith, who he will be mentoring and teaching.  Gonzalez, who is a career .288 hitter with 311 HRs, if the Mets can get anything out of him it is a win, win.

Mets Rumors: Nunez, Duda

Mets Rumors: Nunez, Duda

According to John Harper of the Daily News, it's not out of the realm of possibility for the Mets to land ex-Yankees infielder and recent former Red Sox Eduardo Nunez on a two-year deal to spark the offense.

His OPS for the season was .801, and Nunez thrived in the pennant-race pressure with the Red Sox, hitting .321 with a difference-making .892 OPS during his two months in Boston while playing second base at times, third at others.

"He sparked them, no doubt," says an AL scout for one of the other playoff teams who was assigned to the Red Sox down the stretch. "He got some big hits and he just seemed to energize that offense when they needed it.

The question, of course, is how much it would cost, and the way this market is developing, it's possible the Mets could get him on a two-year deal for, say, $20-$24 million.

Mets Rumors: Money Over Kipnis And Others

Multiple sources say the Mets had a deal in place to trade for Cleveland second basemen Jason Kipnis at the gm winter meetings. Talks broke down after the Mets didn't value the Kipnis' contract at $30.5 million dollars owed after 2 seasons.

Many have speculated that the Mets had offered closer AJ Ramos as the main piece, but again the Mets thought Ramos was more valuable than Kipnis.

The Mets continue the search for an infielder either at 2B or 3B. Pirates Josh Harrison ($10M) has more value than Kipnis because not only can he steal a base, but he can play multiple positions (2B, 3B, OF) that gives the Mets flexibility for first manager Mickey Callaway. His price tag also fits the Mets mantra.

Mets Rumors: What's Next For The Mets?

Now that the Mets have re-signed OF Jay Bruce, what are the Mets gonna do next??

The Mets finally have woken up out of their coma and are starting to make moves. The Mets are serious about bringing in an infielder. The Mets could still be in play for Josh Harrison as a trade candidate or the Mets could make a power move of Harrison and OF Andrew McCutchen, but that could be too far-fetched.

Other options could include either third basemen Mike Moustakas or Todd Frazier and many are saying that Frazier could go to the Mets for 1 or  2-year deal.

The Mets are also interested in bringing back Addison Reed, but still, the Mets probably don't want to go more than 2 years. He might be the next on the Mets radar as they have been in talks all week.
