Mets GM tells Mike Francesa the team would need to be 'very creative' to have a shot at Manny Machado or Bryce Harper

That confirms what the Mets have said privately – and has been reported all along – since the season ended. Machado and Harper, the “two big boys,” on the market are not in their crosshairs. Machado, the infielder who seems like a strong fit for the Yankees at this point, and Harper, who will be hosting teams next week when all of baseball converges on his hometown of Las Vegas for the Winter Meetings, will both likely land mega, multi-year deals.
