How the Mets could jumpstart the Brodie Van Wagenen era with a few low-cost pickups and some good luck - CBSSports.com

This is a tough place to be.

Even with some big chunks of money coming off the books, the Mets have strikingly little financial flexibility for a team coming off such a lousy season. According to the excellent Cot’s contracts page, New York is already projected to carry about $144 million in payroll next season, with about $46 million of that total tied up in projected arbitration awards. Syndergaard and deGrom project to earn about $22 million combined through arbitration in 2019, with a gigantic additional raise in store the following year.

But they have literally nothing on the books starting in 2020 (or maybe 2021?). This is a fake problem.

New York Mets @Mets
We have mutually agreed to part ways with Special Assistant to the General Manager J.P. Ricciardi, effective immediately.

Oh ffs--he was the lone guy I trusted to keep this circus from spiraling totally out of control...

This is going to be a total disaster. This guy's first week on the job he spends wasting thought cycles on the plan for stud prospect Tim Tebow.
