Mets Sign Jose Valentin To Minor League Deal


'Stache would stand to earn $800,000 if he makes the big club. Let's hope he gets his blog fired up again.

What The Oliver Perez Signing Means For The Mets


The Mets have re-signed Oliver Perez. Yay?!

Mets Sign Maine, Avoid Arbitration


$2.5 million for 2009. The Mets had submitted a figure of $2.2 million, Maine was asking for $3 million.

Mets Sign Freddy Garcia


Apparently Garcia could be paid as much 9 million if all incentives are met. Eric's Take: The interesting question here is whether the Mets expect Garcia to make the team out of spring training. If we assume good health, the rotation looks like this: Johan Santana Mike Pelfrey John Maine Tim Redding If Garcia makes the club then they're already at a five-man staff. I don't know that this precludes them from signing a more establish arm (Ben Sheets anyone?), and if not then does Redding or Garcia go to the bullpen?

Mets Avoid Arbitration With Church, Pagan


Per LoHud: Church, 30, agreed to a one-year contract for $2.8 million. He hit .276 with 12 home runs and 49 RBI in his first season as a Met. Concussions limited him to 90 games. Pagan, who is currently recovering from surgery to repair his torn left labrum, also signed a one-year contract, for $575,000. The 27-year-old outfielder hit .275 with 12 runs scored, seven doubles and 13 RBI in 31 games. Nothing to complain about here. Pagan should be worth this and more if he can stay healthy. Ditto Church. John Maine and Pedro Feliciano are the Mets' only remaining arbitration-eligible players. Feliciano made $1.025 million last year plus bonuses; Maine made $450,000 and is eligible for arbitration for the first time.

Cory Sullivan Signs With Mets

Cory Sullivan, arguably one of the best defensive center fielders in Rockies’ history, has caught on with the Mets, signing a one-year, $600,000 major league deal with $300,000 in incentives. Per FanGraphs, Sullivan has been worth -21.9 UZR runs in 253 games (186 starts) as a centerfielder. The good news is that he has also been worth between -.7 WAR (FanGraphs) and 2.3 WAR (StatCorner). For his career. He has seasonal wOBA marks of .344, .324, .308, .333 and .246. He had a nice season with Triple-A Colorado Springs last year so, uhh, there's that. (h/t MetsBlog).

Mets Come To Terms With Sanchez, Reed

[Duaner] Sanchez agreed to a one-year contract for $1,687,500, the $500 suggesting the two sides split the difference between two figures, and [Jeremy] Reed agreed to a one-year contract for $925,000. I dunno. Seems like a lot of money for Sanchez, who was worth anywhere between -.3 WAR (StatCorner) and +.1 WAR (FanGraphs), which pegs his value at somewhere between -$900,000 and +$300,000, both of which are far less than $1.7 million. A team without the Mets' financial endowments would surely have non-tendered Sanchez, though the Mets can afford to take a risk here.

ESPN - Mets claim Andy Phillips off waivers from Reds - MLB


Has never done much as a big leaguer, but has shown good pop and so-so discipline as a minor leaguer. Probably better than Fernando Tatis. Off the top of my head, some Phillipses I'd have preferred the Mets sign: Brandon Phillips Jason Phillips Steve Phillips Chynna Phillips Bijou Phillips Philip Seymour Hoffman Did I miss any?
