Meet the Mets

The Mets and Ike Davis agreed to a contract for 2013, avoiding Davis' first trip through arbitration. Ike will make $3.125 this season. Daniel Murphy is now the only Met who has yet to agree on a deal with the team.

In the Daily News, there's a report that SNY will cancel The Wheelhouse in order to expand their Mets pre-game coverage to a full hour. The new show will feature more Gary, Keith, and Ron as well as Kevin Burkhardt, Chris Carlin and Bobby Ojeda.

Around the Majors

Stan "the man" Musial has passed away at the age of 92. The Cardinals' great died mere hours after Earl Weaver. What a tough day for baseball.

Giants' GM Brian Sabean says that in all likelihood Brian Wilson will not return to San Francisco for 2013.

Righty reliever Matt Lindstrom has signed a one-year deal with the White Sox. That's a shame, as he was high on my personal bullpen arm list.

Miguel Batista signed a minor league deal with the Colorado Rockies, the best team in baseball.

Ryan Raburn is close to a minor league deal with the Cleveland Indians.

Yesterday At AA
