Noah+Syndergaard

Sandy Alderson recently spoke with reporters at the Winter Meetings and addressed the buzz over possible pitching acquisitions, stating that the Mets are only looking to ink a one-year deal, while mentioning they may be willing to budge for the right player.

Alderson said that he did not wish to fill up future openings reserved for prospects Noah Syndergaard and Rafael Montero. However, he was recently reported as saying either pitcher could work into a starting role at some point next season.

It was also reported that Alderson met with free-agent right-hander Bartolo Colon, but that deal has since been squashed due to contract demands by Colon.

    I wonder what this offseason would look like without the pitching injuries last season. If Matt Harvey, Hefner, and Mejia didn’t all go down with injuries and instead finished out the year. We would have 5 plus starters and be 3-4 starters deep in in the depth chart. Not only would out whole budget go to improving offense but we would probably have a starter to trade….

    I think Mejia can still be the 5th starter next season
