This week’s podcast puts a bow on the 2016 Mets season and looks towards 2017. I am also joined by MMO’s John Delcos who you can also check out at New York Mets Report.
John and I discuss why Jeurys Familia is not a failed postseason closer, the future of Yoenis Cespedis, what free agents the Mets should keep and what positions they need to upgrade.
John believes the Mets should move on from Cespedes and reinvest that money towards a more balanced ballclub. I am concerned about losing an impact bat and the real right-handed power threat in the lineup. Are Edwin Encarnacion and Jose Bautista options?
Also hear our thoughts on free agents Kelly Johnson, Fernando Salas, Neil Walker, Bartolo Colon and Jerry Blevins. What does the future of Travis d’Arnaud and Lucas Duda hold? The show is chock full of honest and hard-hitting opinion and analysis.
I want to thank all the listeners of the podcast for a fun 2016 season. I will return after the World Series unless there is Mets news prior to that.
