NY Mets All-Star trade target Kris Bryant
Will we ever hear the end of the Mets and Kris Bryant trades? Not until he signs a long-term deal somewhere.
The Chicago Cubs have fallen and they can’t get up! No longer a potential playoff team, the team may now be this summer’s biggest sellers.
Nobody could be more valuable to trade away than Bryant. A former MVP having an All-Star year again this season, he is by far the best position player I think the Mets could realistically acquire.
Bryant is more than a third base upgrade. Also able to play all three outfield positions (mostly the corners), he’d help fill multiple needs and ensure the Amazins never feel too much pain whenever someone goes down with an injury. I love the idea of Bryant starting once a week in left field and another in right field. Stick him at third base for the majority of the team and watch as the offense flourishes.
Trading for Bryant probably means moving on from J.D. Davis but it is no guarantee. The Mets could keep Davis and go the last two months of the season with a more stacked roster.
There have been too many 2021 games where the Mets couldn’t buy a hit. A trade for Bryant may help cure this.
