Manny Ramirez. Vladimir Guerrero. Alex Rodriguez. What Mets team have you been rooting for?
They were finally able to pull a trigger on Beltran and Pedro, but the number of guys the Mets ought to have signed (and were capable of) far outweighs those they have.
They didn't want Manny, weren't seriously willing to pay up for ARod over pitching and other needs, and Vlad wanting to stay away from the New York spotlight is probably a legitimate reason why he spurned us. Besides, we offered Vlad 3 years only and 5 if he stayed healthy, LA offered the full 5, who would you choose?
It's the same this year, they've hardly been serious about Holliday but have with Bay and they got him.
