The Mets offense stays as is but not before rumors circulate

I would like to see the Mets add a bat this summer. However, I have a tough time seeing where they could possibly plug a guy in. Unless some injury lingers or gets worse, is there much room to do anything at all?

This doesn’t take away from the abundance of trade rumors and speculation that will surge in the coming weeks. Depending on how the offense performs will have a lot to do with just how many of those rumors hit your social media feed.

As is, the only real addition the Mets may want is an outfielder for depth. Albert Almora has been my least favorite offensive player from the Opening Day roster. He serves a purpose as a defensive replacement. However, his bat may not be enough.

The Mets already went out and added Billy McKinney as an alternative option. Because of this, the team seems rather set.

Something major would need to occur for the Mets to bring in a Yoenis Cespedes-type player. Even a Kelly Johnson feels unlikely.

The offense on the payroll is what we’ll see for however long the season lasts. Perhaps a minor move, for a player we eventually see designated for assignment, could happen. Anything more: I’m not willing to predict.
