Which New York Mets rumors will come true this winter? (Photo by Dylan Buell/Getty Images)

With the abundance of New York Mets rumors circulating around baseball, let’s take a dive into the percentages of the front office acquiring one of the star players avaliable this winter.

Early on in the offseason, the New York Mets rumors have been a trending topic around baseball as the organization has been connected to about every big-name free agent and superstar player on the trading block so far. Specifically, we’ve seen reports connect the Mets to outfielder George Springer, starting pitcher Trevor Bauer, shortstop Francisco Lindor, and third baseman Nolan Arenado, among others.

The Mets arguably have been the most active team thus far in free agency by signing reliever Trevor May and catcher James McCann which were two highly regarded free agents in their own right. Yet, the organization still has plenty of work to do in reconstructing the 2021 roster before Spring Training, but with Jared Porter recently taking over the reins of General Manager it seems more moves could be on the horizon shortly.

As we move a bit deeper into the winter months, I expect the market to become a bit more active with some of the more significant names on the free-agent market finding homes as well as some of the superstars that are on the trading block being moved. Until then the Mets rumors will continue to be the center of attention around the entire industry as we await one of the larger dominoes to fall first this offseason.

I wanted to touch on all of the significant names that have been connected to the Mets up to this point in the offseason and provide what I believe the percentage is that they will be in a Mets uniform on Opening Day in 2021.
