I also think Collins is gone after this year.
This team really isn't bad except for the OF.I agree, I even like their bullpen which was another question mark. They got lefties, power arms and depth but to have 3 holes in the outfield is going to take a toll on the rest of the team.
What I'm getting at is the Mets could have easily matched this offer from Cleveland before any agreement if they really wanted him, $12 mil a year for Bourn is not overpaying so they can't really use that excuse this time. This does make Alderson look kind of bad if you think about thaLets say the Mets were willing to go to 4 years to match this offer (which I'm not sure they were), there's still the issue of the draft pick.
