Shohei OtaniIt has been confirmed that he will not participate in the remaining games this year. Which team he will play for next year is still a hot topic. The outside world is optimistic that he can become the highest-paid player in history.New York media “SNY” believes that the rich familyMetropolitanThe team will be in the race, but “New York Post” senior reporter John Heyman does not want the Mets to compete for Ohtani.
“SNY” believes the Mets need to strengthen their center line. In this year’s free market, only Shohei Ohtani and the Cubs’ strong hitter Cody Bellinger meet the needs. Although Ohtani will have TJ surgery,philadelphiaTake Bryce Harper of the New Jersey team as an example. He had TJ surgery last November and returned to the major leagues in early May. Therefore, Ohtani will have no problem playing as a hitter next year.
However, Hyman, a senior reporter for the “New York Post”, has a different view. He believes that the Mets have traded too many players before this year’s trade deadline, and the salary should be allocated to several players instead of spending all the money on Ohtani. Heyman said, “If the Mets sign Ohtani and can’t sign other stars, they will become the ‘East Coast Angels’.”
Hyman said the Mets have four goals to accomplish in the offseason. The first is to replace the two starting pitchers. Candidates include Blake Snell (Blake Snell), Yushin Yamamoto (Yamamoto) of the Padres, Jordan Montgomery (Jordan Montgomery). The Rangers, and the Phillies. Team Nola (Aaron Nola) and Lorenzo (Michael Lorenzen).
The second goal is to sign a top bullpen, such as Padres closer Josh Hader; The third goal is to sign a slugger, and the Cubs’ Bellinger is a better fit than the Blue Jays’ Matt Chapman. Hyman ultimately insisted on the need to renew slugger Pete Alonso’s contract. He believed that Alonso had leadership skills and could hit over 40 home runs each year. Apart from him, only Ohtani can do this.
