With Steve Cohen taking over, this offseason should be a very exciting one for New York Mets fans and for these ten free agents that should be on the radar.

The New York Mets just wrapped up an extremely disappointing 2020 season with a 26-34 record and missed the playoffs once again. This team has a lot of glaring holes. The Mets need a lot of help in their rotation, that’s definitely the biggest weakness of this team.

Outside of Jacob deGrom, there’s nobody that can be trusted. The catcher situation is extremely weak as well, as Wilson Ramos and Robinson Chirinos are free agents and likely won’t be back. The bullpen looked alright this season but could use a boost especially if Seth Lugo is a starting pitcher. The team defense was horrible, mainly in center field.

With new ownership in Steve Cohen set to arrive in November, the Mets might actually be willing to spend money in free agency. For years, the Mets have acted like a mid-market team with the Wilpon’s running the show while their crosstown rivals have signed what feels like millions of all-stars in free agency.

In order to contend next season, this team needs help. Here are 10 free agents I believe the Mets should target this offseason.
