also,


It's a shit deal because the Mets don't have much money and he's an aging player that isn't anything special. This team needs a real 3B and a 2B. Maybe this means Conforto is fucked..dunno.

your outfield is now Cespedes-Conforto-Bruce, which is fine

this shouldn't have anything to do with a 2B or 3B although i'm sure it will

Nimmo and Lagares should've been enough with a minor league whatever in the outfield with that money put towards a real infielder or two. This team is built around pitching, shitty defense and below average offense.

Bruce is fine as a corner outfielder. Cespedes is incredible when he’s healthy. Conforto was having an incredible year before his shoulder fell out. The pitching is good if healthy, the outfield is fine. The infield is complete trash and D’arnaud defense isn’t good enough to make up for his bat.

What they should do is pony up for Machado or Donaldson and break the bank for Hosmer. Asdrubal and Flores are fine for NL second baseman temporarily. No idea how they fix the catcher position though.

Not when there's an emphasis on OBP and BA more than power in today's baseball. Power is viewed as a bonus.

Point remains that $13 mil a year is cheap for a guy that just put up 36 HRs and 100 RBIs

Not really. Guys that only hit for power aren't getting paid the big bucks anymore. Morales hit 36-94 and only got 11M per year. Baseball is changing, they don't care about HR or RBI anymore, so they aren't gonna see the 20-30M. Lorenzo Cain will get more because he hits for average and has speed. Just the way she goes.

My issue is the Mets are a small/medium market team with the Wilpons owning them and they have to be very judicious with their spending. Jay Bruce didn't seem like a priority to me. I'd be happier if it was a 1 or 2 year deal though.

1. Morales “only” got 11m

2. Bruce at 13m is cheap.
-“not really”

Pick both

Both players are middling and provide very little value. They don't deserve big bucks, they got paid what they're worth.

Morales actually got overpaid.

The home run certainly isn’t as big as it was 20 years ago but the overall point remains that Bruce at 13m is relatively cheap.

Brady Anderson home run totals by year:

Jose Bautista home run totals by year:
16, 15, 15, 13, 54

One is a poster child of the steroid era. One got his face rearranged by Rougned Odor.

Mental health does not discriminate. Very sad, Halladay was a stud, I can't remember the Yankees having any sort of success against him.
