2022 New York Mets off-season thread

Kinda feels like the 2022 Mets were a one-year wonder.  I think that they’re a 90-win team next season if they somehow bring that group back relatively intact.

Hopefully this is just the start to Cohen's we're doing serious business now offseason

Never really had much doubt they'd retain Diaz so long as they hit the $100 million mark, and that wasn't going to be an issue with Cohen

Holy sh!t that feels like a lot of money for a closer.  But this owner has it to spend.

So deGrom opts out (was fully expected).  If I'm the Mets, I still don't re-sign him.  He's made less than a full season's worth of starts over the last two seasons combined.  There's nothing more annoying than going into a new season thinking "Well if Jake can stay healthy..."  You can't keep betting on that and hoping for the best.  Could be that his best, most durable days are behind him now.

That and there really weren't a lot of other options out there...Kenley Jansen keeps holding up barely but he always feels like he's a few bad weeks away from being Craig Kimbrel-like useless.  Where else could they have even gone for a closer, re-sign Ottavino or Lugo and give it to them?

Yeah true...and if money isn't an object (and with Cohen's Mets, it's definitely not), sure, sign Diaz to crazy money.  Very good chance that this contract won't age well, but there's always that risk with high-priced, long-term deals.

Kimbrel was actually quite good for the Dodgers down the stretch, but yeah, he's not what he was.
