Mets Rumors: New York waiting to attack free agent market till January?

The New York Mets' modest offseason has been overshadowed by the splashy moves of teams like the San Diego Padres and Chicago Cubs, but one baseball executive believes the Mets won't be quiet for long.

“I don’t think the Mets are going to be quiet all offseason,” one AL West executive said recently to the New York Post's Joel Sherman.

When Sherman asked the executive if he thought that meant the Mets would target a blockbuster trade for Colorado Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki as has been rumored for quite some time, the executive indicated that he felt the Mets would be forced to go a different, more cost-effective direction.

”I don’t think they have the financial flexibility to pay for him even if they could get him. I think they’re laying in the weeds waiting for hopeful January free-agent bargains.”
