According to Mike Puma of the New York Post, the Mets are expected to at least consider free agent OF Cody Ross during the Winter Meetings, but he might be too expensive. Angel Pagan and Shane Victorino will also be considered, but could also be out of the Mets price range.
The Mets could try and get creative and perhaps dangle Jon Niese as trade bait for a legitimate starting outfielder.
In an ideal scenario, he writes, the Mets would trade a starting pitcher and receive a quality catcher and outfielder in return. But that deal might not be easy to find.
In no particular order, the Mets to-do list for the Winter Meetings is as follows:
1. Fix The Outfield
2. Get A Catcher
3. Resolve R.A. Dickey’s Status
4. Look For Bullpen Help
5. Add Major League Depth
