Can’t decide what’s the better deal
Would you rather have Grandal and a pen of Diaz/Lugo/Gsellman?

this is more lol Grandal than lol Brodie, to be honest. The Wilpons wouldn't sign off on giving anyone who's not a huge name like Cano that much money for one year

I prefer our deal with Ramos. Particularly with our limited financial resources. Wouldn’t have had the money for Familia at that price for one year of Grandal. I also just prefer betting on Ramos.

I also still kind of doubt we ever had a formal 4/60 offer on the table; lots of conflicting reporting out there on the subject. Still feels more likely that it was more of a conversation that revealed they were apart on terms. But who knows.

yeah we won here.

really doesn't make sense that we'd offer 4/60 but now refuse to offer anything for anyone, though.

I think people take the literal offer thing too seriously

Like discussing terms is kind of like an offer, like Rosenthal said they discussed a 4 year deal at $55 million and were willing to go to $60 million if grandal said yes while he wanted more

I’m pretty sure they would’ve been able to sign both grandal and familia

They would’ve just backloaded the hell out of grandal’s

Probably pay him $8-10 million in 2019 as opposed to $15

But I think we made out well here

You mean deferred. You cant backload a 1 year deal.

And he probably wouldnt have agreed to it if he could get the same money for a non-deferred deal.

Nah, I mean if the mets signed him to the 4 year reported deal, they would’ve still signed familia

Gotcha. Maybe, but I think it's more doubtful than probable. We're talking $80M-$90M for two players.

They’re paying ramos $8.25 million this year and familia $6 million ($2 million signing bonus being paid 7/2019 and 12/2019)

So they probably would’ve just found a way to bring grandal’s 2019 number down



Also, all you have to do is look at the way these crooks structure contracts to know they’re broke


The Mets currently have a sub $130 million payroll once you take insurance payments into account

But they count all those salaries and say they’re spending $150+ million

What a joke

They’ve literally added no money to payroll this off season
