According to the Rocky Mountain News, the agents for free agent Brian Fuentes have put a deal on the table for the New York Mets.
The deal is supposedly worth four-years, $44 million. The Rocky Mountain News also notes that the other teams looking into Fuentes were only interested in a one-year or two-year deal.
I'm for this. I'd sign on the dotted line, if I were Omar Minaya. A very good closer for $11 million per season works for me. He's younger than Billy Wagner, and that's only $1 million more than what they will be paying him to get surgery and rehab his arm in 2009.
This move would solidify the back-end of the bullpen, and fill a much needed hole.
