It's been a cry by some Mets fans that this offseason has been a failure.

Don't tell that to Keith Hernandez.

The former first baseman and current SNY color commentator says that this offseason has been far from it - rather, it's been a massive success.

"This is the best offseason I’ve seen the Mets have since I can remember, as far as building this club and answering all the needs that are there on that roster." Hernandez Thursday said on Beyond the Booth Live.

The cries have come since the Mets' recent misses on George Springer and Trevor Bauer, who went to the Toronto Blue Jays and Los Angeles Dodgers, respectively.

However, the Mets did get one of the best players in all of baseball in Francisco Lindor, bolstered the rotation and bullpen with Carlos Carrasco and Trevor May, and signed catcher James McCann -- the second-best on the market -- to a four-year deal.

The offseason isn't over, either. The Mets have been in talks with the Chicago Cubs regarding 2016 NL MVP Kris Bryant, SNY's Andy Martino reports.
