Moves The Mets Can Make To Be A Contender

In order to follow the Giants strategy of having good pitching and a good enough offense the Mets are going to need a good enough offense. First you have to look at their holes. Their holes are shortstop, 1st base, and two outfield spots. The Cubs have Javier Baez in their system and are in need of pitching. Starlin Castro has had a bad season and the Mets could try and get him for Michael Fulmer and Dillon Gee or Rafael Montero. Next they should look at the outfield. Juan Lagares is the only one who should start next season. I understand that thew Mets need a right handed power bat. Giancarlo Stanton comes to mind when i think of that, however he would require a Zack Wheeler or Noah Syndegard. Although I have heard the idea of trading Zack Wheeler come up yet, I rather keep him and go after Mark Trumbo. The Angels are also looking for pitching. They should offer Lucas Duda, Dillon Gee or Rafael Montero (whoever they don't trade), and Cory Mazzoni. Mark Trumbo would fill in right field. For left field, they should sign Shin-Soo Choo. For 1st base, move Daniel Murphy over and put Wilmer Flores in 2nd base. Look at this lineup:

LF-Choo

SS-Castro

3B-Wright

RF-Trumbo

1B-Murphy

C-d'Arnaud

2B-Flores

CF-Lagares

P-Harvey(if he's ok)

Wheeler

Niese

Nolasco

Kazmir
