A Very Early Look at Potential New York Mets 2014 Free Agent Targets

It’s hard to imagine during such a disastrous season, but the New York Mets have a chance to be competitive in 2014 and possibly—gulp—play winning baseball for the first time since 2008.

Whether the Mets manage to turn the corner next season largely depends on the team’s ability to acquire free agents next winter. 

In a recent interview with Joel Sherman of the New York Post (h/t MetsBlog ), Mets general manager Sandy Alderson said that the team will have a payroll between $90-100 million next season.

The Mets have $33 million already committed to next year’s roster while Ike Davis, Daniel Murphy and Bobby Parnell, among others, are arbitration-eligible.

This past Saturday during a Q&A session with fans, Alderson insisted that the team will invest money in veteran talent this winter, according to Mike Lupica of the New York Daily News.

So with that in mind, let’s spend the Wilpon’s money. Here’s a very early look at five players the Mets could target in the 2014 free agent market.
