Today, I asked my Twitter followers which free agent (position player or pitcher) they most want to see in orange and blue next season.
Here are some responses…

mattclausen said: John Lackey. I also want to see us grab either Crawford or Upton.
darknova306 said: Lackey plus 2 more competent pitchers. Rotation needs serious help...
Majin_Bernard said: John Lackey. The rotation needs more work than the lineup.

Seems that people either want Lackey or Holliday. And who can blame them?
To me, neither seems like a “great” signing. Lackey is on the wrong side of 30 and looks like he’ll be demanding some big money. Holliday will also be looking for a good chunk of change, and I just don’t think the Mets have it.
How about you?
