The winter meetings have officially come to an end. The Mets did not make a trade or sign a free agent. If the Mets do not trade for a front line starter and instead pick up a free agent I believe the team will be worse than last year. The pitching will be worse, offense will be worse, but defense will be a little better. This isn’t football, defense does not win championships. The winter meetings were a failure for the Mets. They went in needing a front line starter and did not come out with one. Omar needs to get something done and put a better team on the field than last year if they want to win the NL East.
