i don’t mind bringing back Bruce. After his comments post trade last year, I’m surprised he wanted to come back but I like him in the lineup.

Scratching my head on Adrian Gonzalez. I’d rather bring Duda back. Hard to think Gonzalez has much left in the tank.

Don't know the details of the AGon deal, but aren't the Braves still paying him 20 million? Low risk, moderate reward kind of signing.

Yeah, the Mets are paying virtually nothing for him but yes, it puts Dom Smith back in AAA, right?

Who knows with Smith. Gonzalez is injury prone. Got Gonzo for a song.
500K ish. Also, I cannot understand the d’Arnaud resigning other than the Coupons spending less than 2 mill. Can’t we get a decent friggin catcher?

If he's still obese when ST rolls around he's never going to get serious about being fit and I think the top brass is worried about it. He has every tool at his disposal to do it, if he doesn't that's not a good reflection on his work ethic or professionalism.

He did the same thing last offseason then put it all back on. We won't be able to make a sound judgement until the summer rolls around.

Mets ink Jason Vargas to a 2 year deal. I don't mind this one and hopefully prevents us from a lot of these Gselman/Montero starts we've had to throw out there because of starter depth.

Career 4.36/1.31, with most of those innings in the AL. Should be totally serviceable and at times pitch over his head. I like this signing, too.
