With deals signed by Ryan Church, Angel Pagan, Jeremy Reed and Duaner Sanchez, the Mets only have two players left to come to terms with before going to an arbitration hearing.
John Maine and Pedro Feliciano remain in limbo.
Maine is seeking $3 million, while the Mets have offered $2.2 million. His deal would be an increase of over $2.5 million from his 2008 salary.
Feliciano is asking for $1.95 million, but the Mets have offered $1.35 million. Feliciano's proposal is $91,000 more than last season.
The Mets and these two players aren't off by a whole lot, so I think the Mets will come to terms with both before they get to hearings.
