Lots of new contracts for players around the league as the arbitration deadline quickly approaches. The biggest deal to get done from a Met perspective yesterday was Mike Pelfrey's 1 year $4 million contract. The signing represented a $700,000 raise for Big Pelf. The remaining arbitration eligible players, RA Dickey and Angel Pagan appear to be headed to arbitration.
Another interesting signing by Sandy Alderson, bringing in Scott Hairston for outfield depth. The move seems to be a final nail in the coffin for Nick Evan's chances with this organization.
Some speculation around the internets and radios yesterday that Luis Castillo may be cut to make roster space for newly signed Chris Young. I'll believe it when I see it though. Young may be more than just the guy who pushed Castillo off the roster, he may be an amazing addition for a pitcher's park like Citi Field.
