The Mets have been BUSY this offseason making moves.
Acquiring both Robinson Cano and Edwin Diaz from the Mariners was something, but first-year General Manager Brodie Van Wagenen isn't done yet. Not by a long shot.
With the team looking to bring back some excitement to Flushing, the young GM is now shifting his attention to star center fielder A.J. Pollock. Could a deal be in the works?

Per reports, Pollock is looking for a five-year deal in the $80 million range. While he's coming off an All-Star campaign, many out there believe this is WAY too much money for the 30-year-old OF to be asking for.
Regardless, countless teams are reaching out to his reps to see if anything can be done. With New York aggressively pursuing him, you never know what might happen here.
To Me AJ Pollock is a better fit for NYM than Byrce Harper--Now hear me out-- he improves defense in CF so much--and come at a far less expensive cost--Cano Pollock and a great def C makes defense up middle so much better--spend rest of FA budget after that on BP pieces— Rich Coutinho (@coutinho9) December 5, 2018
In 2018, Pollock hit .257, with 21 homers and 65 RBI.
