3) Kris Bryant Is Somehow A Member of the New York Mets
Since early on in the offseason, Mets fans have been fantasizing about ways to have Kris Bryant in Queens and playing third base for the organization. With the recent rash of Mets injuries in May, it certainly hasn’t prevented fans on Twitter from clamoring for ways to make a deal for the 29-year old third baseman from the North Side of Chicago.
While the asking price may be significantly higher early on in the season for any team trying to acquire Bryant, especially in part to his strong start to the 2021 season, Mets fans are still absolutely begging for the Mets to find a way to acquire Bryant. While he certainly would present an upgrade offensively to a largely struggling starting lineup, it may not make sense to part with a top prospect at this point in the season, especially with the asking price is expected to be significantly high in terms of prospects the front office would have to give up.
Earlier this past offseason it was reported that the Cubs wanted a deal centered around catching prospect Francisco Alvarez and I don’t see why that asking price would be any different, especially with Bryant’s recent play and the Cubs still. in contention. The Mets may have a better shot landing a player such as Bryant or a similar caliber player at the Trade Deadline for possibly a bit lower of a price tag.

All in all, if Twitter was running our loveable franchise, we would have a new manager, a $40 million catcher riding the bench barely two months into a four-year contract, and a potential blockbuster trade for Kris Bryant already lined up. Would any of these moves make sense to you?
