If Steve Cohen is a man of his word, look for the Mets to dominate this decade, at least in terms of wild, sky's the limit, spending. His wealth dwarfs that of the Lerner's, even before the commercial real estate decline.

I'm not in a great position to sort this out right now but I'm going to lock the thread until I am (or JCA beats me to it).

Broke out the Harper discussion into the Harper Out of Town scoreboard thread.

Broke out the speculation about RZ's future into the off-season 2020-21 thread.

Broke out the discussion of the viability of city real estate after the pandemic and demonstrations into politics.

Now, let's keep this focused on Eaton.

Do they have a hole in their outfield? At that price I'd expect he's starting.

Yea, they kinda do. Mazara belly flopped so they non-tendered him

What does everyone think? Did we "win" the trade? Time to discuss.

As soon as we decide if we should have signed Prince Fielder.

Happy for Adam.  Will always be a big part of the World Series run.  Several key hits and his routine with Howie after bombs.

Agreed.  I got such a kick out of watching their "Revved Up" cheer after a bomb.  Such a great part of that WS run!

Agreed. He was a key cog in our 2019 run.  I hope he turns it around next year but given the falling offense and poor defense, $7 million seems like an overpay.

Throwing away Eaton leaves the Nats with a shaky OF. Soto is fine: great hitter and constantly improving as a fielder and base-runner. However, Robles has never shown he can hit major league pitching, and all that muscle-weight gain seems not to have helped his fielding. Stevenson is a guy to admire, since, for years, he has looked like a number 6 OF. He looks like a good number 4, but should he start? And then who are the reserve outfielders?

If the Nats spring for Springer, can they afford Realmuto and a 2B and a starting pitcher?

There's not a world where we sign Springer, Realmuto, a SP and a second baseman. I don't think we'll sign any of those, actually. Realmuto for sure is out.
