Welcome to SB Nation Reacts, a survey of fans across MLB. Each week, we send out questions to the most plugged in New York Mets fans, and fans across the country. Sign up here to join Reacts.

With the start of spring training on the horizon—if if starts as originally scheduled, at least—this edition of SB Nation Reacts focuses on some of the bigger names on the free agent market, asking baseball fans where they think those players will sign. The Mets were a choice in all three cases, but when it comes to Trevor Bauer, a plurality of fans said that they expect him to sign with the Angels.

The Mets have been reported to have some interest in DJ LeMahieu, but a majority of fans expect him to come to terms with the Yankees, the team with which he broke out and has continued to flourish. The Dodgers and Blue Jays both finished ahead of the Mets here.

And last, but certainly not least, comes George Springer, the center fielder who was known to have been on the Mets’ radar for the past several weeks. Whether or not the team still signs him remains to be seen, but a plurality of fans said they expect him to end up in the orange and blue. The Blue Jays, Braves, and Astros followed.
