A little more Met goodness for you tonight.
Contrary to reports, the Mets are still willing to meet Julian Tavarez’s demand of a four-year contract. However, the fourth year would be an option that vests based on Tavarez’s innings pitched in the first three seasons.
As for Barry Zito, the Mets won’t make a run for him until after the holidays. Plenty of clubs are still trying to make a splash, and the Mets won’t be caught in a bidding war for Zito’s services. Once things calm down, they’ll get re-engaged.
