The 2015 Winter Meetings are upon us. Coming off of their fun and improbable run to the championship of the National League, the Mets have several decisions to make that will impact the look of the 2016 team. How will they replace Yoenis Cespedes and Daniel Murphy? Is Ben Zobrist the answer? Is it wise to put everything else on hold, pending Zobrist's decision on where he will play next year?
How will the Mets handle center field? Is Denard Span the answer as the left-hand hitting part of a platoon with Juan Lagares? Should the Mets target a non-platoon option, such as Dexter Fowler? And then there's the bullpen. Having lost out on Darren O'Day and Joakim Soria, who is the current target? Jerry Blevins? Tony Sipp?
There are so many more decisions to make, with whether or not to bring Bartolo Colon back among them. So, let's try to sort it all out. Please join me, Rich Sparago, as I host the Rising Apple report tonight, December 7th, at 9 pm. I'll be joined by Sam Maxwell, Danny Abriano, and possibly Mike Lecolant. Greg Price from Faith and Fear in Flushing will be our guest, and we may even have another surprise or two.
