Talkin’ Mets: Shopping On A Budget, Trade Targets, Mex for HOF

Today we play GM on a bargain budget. What players did Mets fans want with only the reported $30-million dollars to spend? I talk about whether Jay Bruce will be out of their price range and why relievers like Bryan Shaw, Mike Minor and Joe Smith are desirable to me.

Everyone keeps talking about Dee Gordon but the player I would rather explore on the trade market is Jose Abreu.

I also go into why I don’t want Dominic Smith as the starting first-baseman and would prefer Adam Lind, Wilmer Flores and even Lucas Duda.

Finally, I make the case for Keith Hernandez for the Hall-of-Fame. Hear a clip of Kostya Kennedy talking about his Sports Illustrated piece on Mex from 2009. Keith Hernandez in the Hall-of-Fame? Is it Crazy? I think not.
