  1. Ricky 5 years ago

    I understand Mets are waiting out the market, but Spring Training is less than 1 month away and we have numerous holes – Catcher, Starting pitcher (maybe 2), lefty Reliever, 1st baseman, solid 4th OF, and of course upgrading 2B by getting rid of Castillo. The time for action is upon us.

    • alxn 5 years ago

      The time for action was a couple months ago.

    • Guest 5 years ago

      Angel Pagan could be one of the best 4th outfielders in Baseball…but I guess you are suggesting that Pagan is the starting center fielder now that Beltran is injured.

  2. bigb69 5 years ago

    Are you kidding me? Frenchy got 5 mil?!? Wow, how did that happen? Are the mets brass that blind? Ricky is right, the mets still need a lot to make a competitive team and signing fyf for that much is NOT a good start!

    • No kidding. As a braves fan I am happy for him but glad it is in that uniform. That puts a lot of perspective on the market value for Johnny Damon. If Frenchy is worth 5MM then Damon won’t get less than 8-9MM. Then again, I have to look at who is making the deal, which is Omar. Thanks again Omar and I hope you never get fired.

  3. $5 million for Frenchy seems a bit high IMO.

    As for the Mets fan who sees many holes, you must know that simply because a hole exists, does not mean each one will be filled in one offseason. Investing over 50 mil to keep Ollie on the team last year will have lasting effects. Supposedly they are in discussions for Molina as we speak, have Delgado on their radar, will definitely scoop up a low end SP and perhaps better. Asking for an upgrade for Castillo is a bit much. He’s a contract that no other team wants to add, yet is fairly productive–offensively at least (.300+ BA, .387 OBP, 20 steals last year). The Mets will doubtlessly have the highest payroll in the NL again, and asking for an upgrade over Castillo because he’s not a power hitting 2B is being greedy. If a Yankee fan made a similar comment, most Mets fans would go crazy… just gotta stay consistent.

    • Super_Hero 5 years ago

      where did you get 50 mil for Ollie? its 36mil for three yrs. That 14mil difference can sign a pretty good player.

  4. bjsguess 5 years ago

    Sweet deal for the Mets. Who knew that you could have a corner outfielder with a sub 750 OPS for only $5m in today’s market?

    How this guy wasn’t non-tendered is beyond me. On the open market he gets maybe $3m.

    • RiverKKiller999 5 years ago

      They gave it to him is because he did good 4 the Mets and they like him at least yall didnt have Church on ur team he sucked 4 us so be happy with what yall got…

  5. daveineg 5 years ago

    Francouer gets a 48% raise? In this market? Ridiculous.

  6. $1529282 5 years ago

    $5MM for Francoeur?!

    Maybe this will quiet some of the people who think he was such a steal from the Braves. I’d rather have Church at $1.5MM… Wow.

    • RiverKKiller999 5 years ago

      You must be smokein somethin good if u rather have church than Francoeur even at 1.5MM!!!!

    • R_y_a_n 5 years ago

      Not letting me reply to Braves25 – but to him – MorenauVP’s statement is pretty dead on, and I’d bet every GM except for maybe Hendry and Moore (and Minaya of course) would take Church at 1.5 mil over Francouer at 5 mil (!).

      So, if he is smoking, then you must be snorting crack.

      • RiverKKiller999 5 years ago

        Must be but you act like noone can have a bad year or two at that.. im willin to bet that Francoure has a good yeah this year… And the braves hitting coach kept tryin to get frenchy to cgange his battin stance and he did but he did horrible after that… If you noticed he chaged his battin stance and did good with the Mets… I mean yeah 5MM for frenchy is bad but havin church is alot worse!!!

        • R_y_a_n 5 years ago

          More like he can’t have a good season unless he’s aided by ridiculous BABIPs.

          And I’ll gladly make the bet with you that Francoeur doesn’t post an OPS over .750. Along with below average defense, this is a terrible deal.

          • RiverKKiller999 5 years ago

            Idk about the OPS but hes defense is really good im willin to bet that Francoeur Hits .280 25HR 85RBI this year…

          • Muggi 5 years ago

            No, his ARM is really good. His defense has declined every year he’s been in the bigs.

          • RiverKKiller999 5 years ago

            Idk about the OPS but hes defense is really good im willin to bet that Francoeur Hits .280 25HR 85RBI this year…

      • RiverKKiller999 5 years ago

        Must be but you act like noone can have a bad year or two at that.. im willin to bet that Francoure has a good yeah this year… And the braves hitting coach kept tryin to get frenchy to cgange his battin stance and he did but he did horrible after that… If you noticed he chaged his battin stance and did good with the Mets… I mean yeah 5MM for frenchy is bad but havin church is alot worse!!!

  7. HansonAce 5 years ago

    The Mets to pay 5M for FYF ….Haha what a deal for Frenchy but the mets have way too many holes on this roster to waste money on guy that can’t put up replacement value in RF….

  8. csg 5 years ago

    well its a good thing that Frenchy has a strong arm because apparently its worth $5mil, he doesnt offer anything else. .309OBP and .423SLG gets you $5mil – unreal. Good job Omar, now go over pay for Piniero and call it an offseason

  9. scottbravesfan19 5 years ago

    All the sudden Ryan Church’s few months in Atlanta look a lot better :) What are the Mets doing? Isn’t Francoeur’s salary what Abreu made last year?

    • Maybe Omar knows something about the economy that the rest of us don’t. Looks like the recession is over!! Rejoice everyone!!!!

  10. 5 mil for Francoeur???? What an overpay! The Mets must be desperate to give Frenchy that kind of $$$$.

  11. BaseballFan0707 5 years ago

    And there are still Mets fans out there that wonder why we ridicule the team.

  12. Guest 5 years ago

    Alright James Loney I can only defend you for so long.. time to produce.

  13. According to the Chicago Sun-Times twitter: Fontenot (1M), Baker (975K), Guzman (825K), Gorzelanny (800K), Hill (700K).

  14. Ryan Ludwick for less than half a mil more than Jeff Franceour. Too funny.

  15. Jason_F 5 years ago

    I’m hoping Lincecum doesn’t go to a hearing. They really need to hammer something out and avoid that altogether.

  16. riotmute 5 years ago

    I think the Cards did a good job with Ludwick – if healthy, he’s a lock for a 280/25/90 season while playing great defense. Now if they can lock down Schumaker for 2-2.25 mil, I think they go into spring training set up very nicely

    • cardinalsincontentionagain 5 years ago

      Based on roster alone – I see the Cards as winners of the division. For the next few years to say the least. I like the Luddy deal, he stays relatively cheap and we may still get some prospects out of him.

  17. optionn 5 years ago

    Russell Martin for over 5 million a year? Didn’t he hit 3 home runs in 160 games?

    Thats crazy to pay that much when you can get a comparable free agent catcher for 2 million. Why teams don’t do more non-tendering is beyond me- Francouer 5 million? What a joke.

    • Guest 5 years ago

      Non tender Russell Martin.. and pick up who, Bengie Molina? Who will cost more… sounds like a good plan.

    • dire straits 5 years ago

      Considering he made close to 4MM in ’09, it’s no surprise he received a 25-30% raise. Who knows how much more he would’ve made in the arbitration process.

      But still, Russell Martin was a shell of his all-star form. So 5MM is overpaying.

  18. csg 5 years ago

    how does Russell Martin get $5.05m? Two straight years slg% under .400 and his ops has dropped from .843 to .680 in two seasons. .329slg% and a .680 ops in 2009 – no wonder Francouer got $5 mil also

  19. RiverKKiller999 5 years ago

    You know im sick and tired of hearin about how much Francoeur is gettin payed this year im willin to bet that Francoeur does a great job this year…

    • He plays for your team now, of course youre willing to bet that

      • dire straits 5 years ago

        And here I thought he was traded to the Mets last season.

      • RiverKKiller999 5 years ago

        Dude did you see Braves25… Im a BRAVES fan not a Mets fan…

      • RiverKKiller999 5 years ago

        My team? He isn’t on the Braves any more fool.He’s on the Mets !Read my name again if you can….

    • csg 5 years ago

      well when you see Jeff Francoeur and a $5mil figure next to it dont come read the comments. Of course people will talk about a non productive player that makes $5mil. I wouldnt be surprised to see him traded or released during this season. Fan Graphs showed his value at 200,000 last season. When your best full season is posting a .783OPS as a corner OF, please define a great job? He has done a decent job in a season or two, but he’s never been great

      • RiverKKiller999 5 years ago

        Yeah he aint great but hes doing alot better than the guys the Mets over pay that on the DL and he did good 4 the mets i mean u dont think he will have a better year?

        • csg 5 years ago

          better year than when? I think his projections are .271/.311/.420 or something close to that. I think the Mets should be happy with that out of him. Ill guess he’ll put up something similar to .250/.300/.390, but his dimishing range in the OF should be a concern also

          • RiverKKiller999 5 years ago

            I thank he will hit .280 25 home runs 85 RBI… i mean he is playin with the mets its not hard to hit there…

          • $1529282 5 years ago

            Citi Field is a a pitchers’ park. Yes, it is hard to hit there.

          • RiverKKiller999 5 years ago

            Not Really the mets pitchers didnt do to good there!!!

          • RiverKKiller999 5 years ago

          • csg 5 years ago

            I can use just about any stat our there and any source to show you that he wont hit 25 HR’s in that park. Hell look what happened to Wright’s power numbers last season. I hope you were being sarcastic in your expectations here, cant ever tell on the internet

          • RiverKKiller999 5 years ago

            You know what your wright i forgot how wrights numbers went down this year… I was thinkin about shea lol.. sorry man ur right im wrong…

  20. zakk689 5 years ago

    Good news for the Cubs if I say so myself lol..4.3m for those 5 players

    • We had to do that. We have $85 mil wrapped up in Z, Sori, ARam, Lee and Fuku this year. Hopefully Baker and Fontenot can get a good platoon system working. I am psyched about what Guzman is gonna do this year.

      • cardinalsincontentionagain 5 years ago

        Really all there is to be psyched up as a Cub fan………..

  21. Alldaybaseball 5 years ago

    LOL 5 million for Frenchy.

  22. Alldaybaseball 5 years ago

    Kuo only got 900K?

    • Guest 5 years ago

      Yeah, that is a great value.. Hes one bad pitch from ending his career though, hope he can stay healthy.

  23. scottbravesfan19 5 years ago

    Jeff Francoeur is making more than Matt Garza….. WOW! This is hilarious, as a Braves fan I am more than happy to see him make that because thats less the Mets have to spend.

  24. R_y_a_n 5 years ago

    Frenchy gets 5 mil…

    Is Minaya really this bad? Dude shoulda been non-tendered…

    • No, he’s worse. This counts as only a medium screwup, considering that it’s only for one year and less than $10million, even if it is for a fourth outfielder.

    • RiverKKiller999 5 years ago

      Should have been non tendered ummm no!!!! He did good after the braves traded him to the mets why non tendered him when he does good?

      • R_y_a_n 5 years ago

        Even if he sustains what he did with the Mets next season (which is not going to happen, considering how lucky he was) 5 mil is still to much. All advanced metrics show Francoeur is not a good fielder and even when he hit .311 with the Mets, his OBP was still only .338. The guy is NOT worth 5 mil.

        Fair point rishathra – at least it is only one year. Still, the entire thing could have been avoided if Minaya had done the right thing in the first place – non-tender Frenchy.

        • RiverKKiller999 5 years ago

          I will say this he aint worth 5MM but i think they should have traded him for some body else dont know who though… And i still gotta say he will do good this year if not o well

        • RiverKKiller999 5 years ago

    Great for the Braves to get Moylan for 1.15 million. A great reliever who should be the set-up man on most teams. Saito is currently I think.

      I love Moylan i hope the Braves sign him long term.

    Two years and $3.2MM for Harris? Wtf?

    • Twins GM 5 years ago

      That’s what you get when your not one of Gardy’s boys. Wish Punto would have signed a deal like that instead of 2yr $9MM. A fair price for Harris who is a util player.

      • $1529282 5 years ago

        Seems like too much to me, to be honest. At least the second year is puzzling. Oh well, Harris is fine coming off the bench and can play anywhere in the infield, I was just surprised he got that much of a commitment. Not horrible, but there’s probably better ways we could’ve spent $1.5MM. Meh

        • It’s seems alright to me. One thing harris proved in 2009 is that he’s versatile and pretty clutch with the bat. He’s a good guy to have being that he can play many positions well and get needed at-bats over the course of the year to keep everyone fresh. Compared to Punto, he has a better bat but is not as good defensively. So I agree with TwinGM this is not a bad deal, Punto’s is.

    Angels reached deals with Napoli and Willits link to twitter.com

  44. Reggie Willits is the white Juan Pierre. I just wish he can play regularly somewhere, but I doubt it. He’s 30, and not getting any better so he’s just going to stay on the LAA doing nothin but playing minor league ball.

    Cubs are thinking they can slide one under the radar at 2nd base, hoping they get something for nothing out of 2 guys at 2nd base. Baker should be worth the dough as a backup because of his versatility, but that spot in the batting order will be crucial if Soto proves a flop and/or injury arises anywhere else. I have a feeling Cubs are ganna get what they paid for at 2nd this year. If they can keep their head afloat look for some of them prized prospects to be traded by deadline to fill that void.

  46. Twins are taking care of business once again, avoiding arb hearings with all their eligible players. Now they can concentrate on upgrading the infield and most importantly getting a Joe Mauer contract extention finished. This is good to hear as a twins fan.

      Maybe add one more pitcher not-named-Washburn ?

      • Yeah, I think 3rd is more of a need right now than a starter and I’m saying that cuz I don’t see too many studs left that may sign on the cheap. There are some nice bats to be had though.
