Wow. Early on in the Jet season I was saying how nice of a contrast they were to the Mets. That sentiment didn't last the entire season, but it sure is back now.
Meet the Mets
The Mets have avoided arbitration with John Maine who is trying to come back from an injury plagued 2009. The damage: 1 year, $3.3 million.
More on Beltran: Minaya and Beltran spoke on the phone and apparently cleared up a lot. Nevertheless, Minaya admitted that the whole process leading up to this was problematic.
In case you wanted to get in touch with Michael Baron, have at it.
Rob Neyer thankfully lists the Mets as a place where Johnny Damon is not likely to end up.
Patrick Flood has put his baseball fandom up on Craig's List.
And, finally, Mets Police has taken my line about the Brooklyn logo as a challenge. The only problem is, they actually like the logo. Oh well.
Former Met (unfortunately) Jose Offerman punched an umpire in a winter league game in the Dominican Republic.
Nationals' GM Mike Rizzo is starting to leave his mark on the Washington roster.
How did all the Type A free agents fare during the off-season? Who all is left over to play first base? Why am I phrasing all these links as questions?
Milton Bradley fled Chicago without paying the rent due on his condominium and is being sued for $44,000.
And, finally, in honor of Conan O'Brien, here's old time baseball.
