Why Ryan Braun And Mike Napoli Would Turn The Mets Into Contenders

The Mets have recently signed Chris Young and still have more holes to fill. Since Chris Young was promised playing time, let's assume he gets an outfield spot. I understand Ryan Braun has had his issues but i would take the chance. I think Ike Davis, Rafael Montero, and Wilmer Flores would get the job done. a 3-4 Wright Braun punch would be lethal. In 1986, the Mets had Keith Hernandez and Gary Carter. That said, the Mets need another veteran leader in the clubhouse, someone who's won a championship before. Mike Napoli would be the perfect guy and would fill their 1B slot. Assuming they keep Juan Lagares at center and Daniel Murphy at second, all that's left is shortstop. Jhonny Peralta's gone and Stephen Drew will demand too much money, so they have to look at the trade market. Troy Tulowitzki and Starlin Castro might be too pricey for Sandy Alderson to pursue, so they should go after Didi Gregrious from the Arizona Diamondbacks. He would cost less than Castro and Tulo and is an upgrade over Ruben Tejada. The lineup could look a little like this:

CF-Lagares

2B-Murphy

3B-Wright

LF-Braun

1B-Napoli

C-D'Arnaud

RF-Young (Chris)

SS-Gregrious
