Now that I've gotten your attention...

 

 

Going to try to be very dry with this one, because there are two manifestations of what I'd do depending on Reyes.

1. Reyes and stuff. I'd offer Reyes 5 years at $100 million with some options at the end of it for a bit less annually (say $14 million mutual with $3 million buyout followed by $10 million mutual with $2 million buyout). If he decides the Tigers, Brewers and Angels are better fits, then to hell with him.

IF REYES SIGNS:

Then we have a pretty interesting squad next year. Two first basemen (Davis, Duda), two second basemen (Tejada, Murphy), and Reyes and Wright, making two big all-star caliber question marks. With Pagan technically not a guarantee, we have an outfield crop of Bay and.... that's about it. Thole would be back, Paulino not necessarily, Santana, Niese, Dickey and Gee back, Pelfrey not necessarily. Anyways, enough rambling, here's what I would do:

1. Send Ike Davis to the outfield. Davis spent time on the mound and in the outfield at college, and he has the strength and athleticism to move back and handle the position with significantly more ability and grace than Lucas Duda, who is also an ample first baseman and possibly the first baseman of our future. Davis' arm would be a great fit for the Mets' 2012 left field.

2. Trade Jason Bay to the Yankees for A.J. Burnett. They have essentially equal contracts for the next two seasons, and just as Bay could use an easy park to mash in and the Yankees need a 4th outfielder, the Mets could use a talented pitcher like Burnett in a pitcher's park and in the NL East, where Burnett thrived (When healthy). At the start of the season I'd like to relegate Burnett to a bullpen role, and either work him as a closer or starter if he shows he can handle either.

3. Sign  Chris Capuano to a 2 year, $6 million deal. Whether as a swingman, lefty specialist or starter, Capuano is a very useful pitcher who likely won't be seeing a large sum of cash from any other team, considering he showed trouble with the long ball even at Citi.

4. Tender Angel Pagan, Ronny Paulino, Taylor Buchholz, Manny Acosta and Mike Pelfrey contracts. In aggregate that should cost around $14 million.

5. Sign Coco Crisp to a 2 year, $14 million deal.

6. Sign Jonathan Broxton to a 2 year, $11 million deal with a third year team option

7. Sign Kyle Davies to a minor league deal

8. Sign Andy LaRoche to a minor league deal

9. Trade Daniel Murphy and Zach Lutz to the Angels for Maicer Izturis and Garrett Richards

10. Trade Justin Turner to the Diamondbacks for Collin Cowgill

Bullpen: Parnell, Herrera, Byrdak, Capuano, Acosta, Burnett, Broxton (CL)

Rotation: Santana, Dickey, Niese, Pelfrey, Gee

Lineup: Reyes SS, Crisp CF, Wright 3B, Davis LF, Duda 1B, Pagan RF, Thole/Paulino C, Tejada 2B

Bench: Izturis, Evans, Pridie, Paulino/Thole, Cowgill

AAA: Schwinden, Richards, Davies, Mejia, Familia, Beato, Carrasco, Buchholz, Nickeas, Pascucci, Satin, Valdespin, LaRoche, Martinez, Nieuwenhuis, Lagares, Baxter

IF REYES DOES NOT SIGN

1. Send Ike Davis to the outfield

2. Trade Jason Bay to the Yankees for A.J. Burnett.

3. Sign  Chris Capuano to a 2 year, $6 million deal

4. Tender Angel Pagan, Ronny Paulino, Taylor Buchholz, Manny Acosta and Mike Pelfrey contracts.

5. Trade David Wright to the Reds for Yasmani Grandal, Yonder Alonso and Todd Frazier OR trade to the Rockies for Nolan Arenado and Drew Pomeranz.

6. Move Daniel Murphy to 3B, Ruben Tejada to SS

7. Sign Brandon Phillips to a 4 year, $44 million deal if he is available, or sign Kelly Johnson toa 2 year, $16 million deal with a third year team option for the same amount.

8. Get Yu Darvish. Post whatever you need to post him, and sign him. Post $50 million and get him for 6 years $70 million if you have to.

9. Sign David DeJesus to 1-year, $3.7 million deal.

10. Sign Jonathan Broxton to 2 year, $11 million deal with third year team option.

11. Sign Wei-Yin Chen to 3 years, $36 million
