Mets Rumors: Organization wants both George Springer and Trevor Bauer
According to the latest New York Mets rumors circulating around the internet, the organization is not far from making a move for George Springer and/or Trevor Bauer.
As we are midway through the Major League Baseball Winter Meetings, the New York Mets rumors are starting to fly fast and furiously around the internet, with the latest bombshell of a Mets rumor coming from baseball columnist Bob Klapisch. Klapisch tweeted on Wednesday afternoon that the organization is moving closer to George Springer and/or Trevor Bauer.
What makes Klapisch’s reporting on Twitter all of the more interesting is that Owner Steve Cohen is favoring a Springer signing, while Team President Sandy Alderson is leaning more towards making a move for Bauer.
Many Mets fans on social media are currently wondering, why not both? It’s important to note in regards to this specific Mets rumor that Klapisch does not rule out the organization signing both of the players in his tweet. It’s certainly fascinating to note however that Alderson and Cohen may be split on who to sign between two of the top three current free agents.
While each player certainly fills a glaring need on the Mets current roster, we also must remember that each player is certainly going to do well for themselves financially as well. The Mets currently can afford to take on both Bauer and Springer financially, especially if the other Mets rumors are true that a deal is close with free-agent catcher James McCann.
Should the Mets come away with both Springer and Bauer at the Winter Meetings, the organization will easily be the clear winner of this year’s annual meeting. It’s also fair to argue that despite it only being the beginning of December, this offseason would go down as one of the best offseasons in Mets history with the addition of both players. Even if the organization walks away with only one of the two players, the Mets would have significantly upgraded their Major League roster as they look to compete for a division title in 2021.
