The Mets are still in the NL East. And for as long as they are they’ll be competing with teams like the Philadelphia Phillies. After the Phillies signed 26-year-old slugger, Bryce Harper the Mets quickly countered with 33-year-old, Carlos Gomez. Gomez is back home if he can make the opening day roster,  the last time he played there was in 2007. The Phillies are getting tailor-made players and the Mets are still shopping in the bargain bin.
