      I’m sure Boras didn’t lower the price, probably raised it.

            Wow.

            Not a good signing but still better than the Heyward one.

                    I hope Boras realizes he’s not going to find that Scherzer-type contract there.

                        Mets signed lefty Jason Vargas to a 2 year deal.

                        So it's.....

                        Syndy
                        DeGrom


                        Vargas
                        Matz
                        Harvey
                        Wheeler
                        Gsellman
                        Lugo

                        Six dudes for 3 spots. Not countimg on guys coming back from injury. Pretty telling. Mets signing another middle of the class FA.

                        Still like Over 80 1/2 wins for this team. They had 70 last year. Tons of injuries to the pitching and to conforto and cespedes. Marlins are much worse. John Smoltz was very high on the Mets on MLB network last night. He said they are a 90+ win team. IdK.

                            I think they're not sure so they are compiling arms to find out. Not taking any chances.

                            Harvey is in his contract year his second season from Tos surgery. He will never be as dominat as he once was but it's possible he could be adequate. Wheeler's arm has problems. He went for injectioms in his stomach for 6 months to strenghten his bones.

                            Matz is very fragile.

                            Lugo has a partial tear in his ucl.

                            Callaway and eiland along with a new medical staff hopefully helps.

                                            The Brewers better have several long relief specialists. With Nelson likely out for the early part of the season, are they relying on Anderson and Davies to eat up innings?

                                                  A flurry of moves yesterday, the biggest being Hosmer signing a 8-year deal with SD. Of course TB in the middle of the moves, cutting payroll along the way.

                                                                            But by all means carry on Top.
