With the WS winding down the free agent period is about to start. First we wait for 5 days after Series is over for the “exclusive negotiating period”s to expire and then the musical chairs begins.
Who’s testing the waters, who wants who, and who’s got money to spend?
There will certainly be lots of guys who’d look good in orange and blue but the question of the season is “How much do we have to spend?”
Allegedly the resources are available to sign Reyes… But then how much is left to spend?
We need a closer, we may need a CF, need a SS(!) not to mention arms for starting and relief.
I realize the Wilpons are keeping quiet about how much $ they can and will spend to improve this team.
I’m guessing there is flexibility to sign Reyes but I fear that may leave us scrapping the bottom of the barrel to fill out the rest of the roster.
