Hall of Fame voter logic: Jeff Bagwell played in an era where a lot of guys took steroids. Therefore, he took steroids. Therefore, he doesn't deserve to be in the Hall of Fame.

In reality, he's a slam-dunk HOFer.

I remember when the Astros were disgusting. That was a long time ago.

They should try with Paulino. LAAA can use him.

The Giants might non-tender him, so why would they still be in the mix?

Can't you re-sign a player you non-tendered?

The Wilton Lopez to Philly deal appears to be suddenly dead: http://zozone.mlblogs.com/2012/11/29...deal-unlikely/

wilson is arb eligible, iirc.

they have to pay him a minimum amount or non-tender him.

since he had tj surgery, they'd rather non-tender him and offer him less than his minimum since they'd be taking a risk.

wilson probably gets nt'ed and ends up in detroit or something. he's certainly weirder than valverde! maybe he can actually get players out!

It was his knee, not his arm. That knee should be just fine when spring training rolls around. He'll still throw his one pitch and dominate the 9th inning.

I was wrong.

Wright signed the extension with Mets.

Agree, just really didn't think Wright would do it.

Even if, when, we struggle the next few years, Wright will be the reason tickets are sold.

Good for Mets. They either had to extend him or trade him, could afford to let him walk as a free agent like Reyes did.


Mets have done a solid job rebuilding that farm. Beltran for Wheeler trade was a winner. Harvey and Wheeler could be really really good.

Jon Heyman ‏@JonHeymanCBS
wright's total deal is for $138M for 8 years, eddie reported. #mets

It seems like this is actually a 7 year/122 M extension, they are adding it to the 16 M salary for 2013 already in place.

Why isn't Dan Haren getting any attention in the free agent market? Did he have an off year or is he past his prime?

Past his prime and significant injury concerns.
