I just finished reading a post on MetsBlog about the Mets and the possibilities of signing soon to be free agent outfielder Jacoby Ellsbury.

According to Jon Heyman of CBS Sports, the Red Sox center fielder has an asking price of more than $100 million dollars.

I’ve also seen names like Shin-Soo Choo and Robinson Cano mentioned as potential Mets targets or mostly players whom the fans would like to see the Mets hone in on.

My questions is this… Regardless of all the things we’ve heard from Sandy Alderson and his bosses and owners, Fred and Jeff Wilpon, do you really believe they will spend as freely as they have suggested?

Do you really think the Mets have the wherewithal to sign anyone this offseason to a $100 million dollar contract?

I mean who wouldn’t want Ellsbury or Choo or Cano, but lets be real here… Do you really believe those are valid options or mostly pipe dreams?

Here are the top ten free agents according to MLB Trade Rumors in their latest free agent power rankings.

1.  Robinson Cano, 2B

2.  Jacoby Ellsbury, CF

3.  Brian McCann, C

4.  Matt Garza, SP

5.  Shin-Soo Choo, OF

6.  Hiroki Kuroda, SP

7.  Ervin Santana, SP

8.  Carlos Beltran, RF

9.  A.J. Burnett, SP

10.  Chase Utley, 2B

Do you see any of these players in a Mets uniform?

Quite honestly, I can’t….
