The Mets need to make one blockbuster trade to add a star player

Will it be a bat? Will it be an arm? I think it will really depend on how the rest of the roster looks and what’s available.

Again, when I say star player, I really mean star. Maybe this trade candidate can be a slightly lesser player than some of the free agents out there. The cost of superstars in a trade can sometimes be too much. We don’t want the Mets selling the farm completely, do we?

Last year, we saw the Mets accomplish this with the Francisco Lindor trade. It’s unlikely they get another player of his reputation but they need to try.

A few weeks ago, I wrote about the perfect trade situation for the Mets to undertake. It involves throwing together literally the best package you have and making one huge deal for a guy you can practically count on rather than several smaller ones to improve the overall roster.

With an abundance of trade candidates under their control, I believe they can make it happen or at least come close to meeting my expectations.

Bringing in one big bat, big arm, and a trade piece this winter is still only the start. They have a bench and a bullpen to round out as well.
