I keep trying to convince myself that it’s only the 1st of December and I know that Sandy Alderson knows what you know, what I know and anyone who follows baseball knows, the Mets as constituted stink. The problem is the little Yogi Berra angel on my shoulder keeps whispering “it gets late early” in my ear on a continuous loop. So what’s a tortured Mets fan to do?
Tonight is non-tender contract night in MLB and small market teams like the Mets tend to utilize this list to find some undervalued skilled labor to help their team, so far the name of White Sox catcher Tyler Flowers who could be non-tendered and is on the Mets radar. Tyler Flowers? Really?
The Mets are in the hunt for Bronson Arroyo. The Mets are not in the hunt for Bronson Arroyo. Both of these rumors have been reported so pick the one who either like the best or believe. I’m going with the Mets are not in the hunt for Bronson Arroyo, that seems to be the chalk pick, besides The Eddie Kranepool Society has received exclusive video of Sandy Alderson’ negotiation with Arroyo’s agent.
