The Mets introduced Jed Lauri as the most recent meeting today. Brody Van Wagenen said Jed Lowury is very popular in the organization. He mentioned Jeff Wilton, Omar Minay, Ian Levin, Adam Gutterge, David Wright Ruben Amaro Allard Baird, John Rico, and Jared Banner by name like people who like this move. He went to say that the Mets were very happy with the improvements they made, but also mentioned that they retained their options for other opportunities in this interim period.
"With the players we added, we feel really, really good about where we are now. "
Van Wagenen said that Laurie would be in the squad every day and would play several positions while doing so. He also mentioned Jed Lowrie as a person who could strike before Robinson Cano and behind Brandon Nimmo essentially hinting that he would hit the second in the line in 2019  Brody also said that the field would not be a priority, and he mentions Jeff McNeal as a person who will see a lot of time in the field. It makes sense to see how Brody still talks about Yoenis Cespedes that he is a collaborator, and McNeil is more athletic than the other guys that Mets have thrown into the field. go out and say what they will do. I suspect they will be watching A.J. Market Pollock . After all, there is still a lot of talent in the free agency, so I do not know whether Van Waggeton has done it yet.
However, this answer is less than promising, given that this is triggered by a question of potential interest in Bryce Harper who, for the disfavor of many Metz fans, seems a little probably signing Mets out of the season.
In addition, Van Waggedon clarified that he is not concerned about what Phyllis or the citizens are doing the rest of the off-season in terms of signing Harper or Manny Machado, which seems likely that at least one of them will play of the NL East in 2019.
This statement is obviously ironic, given the fact that when the team traded for Edwin Dias and Robinson Cano, Jeff Wilton said Metz felt pressure to get the deal Phyllis's interest in acquiring Diaas was also considered. However, Diaz makes the minimum wage compared to Harper or Machado, whose prices could exceed $ 300 million.
