Are Mets Buyers or Sellers?
Quick question for you: are the Mets buyers, or sellers, with the trade deadline looming? Why or why not?
I’m asking because my boss at ESPN has asked that I provide a short post for the SweetSpot Network on whether the Mets are buyers or sellers, and an explanation. I imagine that any outsider would take a quick look at the Mets’ record, roster, and the NL East and guess that they are sellers, but those who are closer to Flushing might see things differently.
That said, I pose the question to you, in the hopes you can help me put together this piece for ESPN. Let me know what you think in the comments, with supporting reasons. Thanks very much — the article will be up on ESPN on Thursday, so it’s a quick turnaround. I sincerely appreciate your input!
