Two weeks ago I wrote that Aroldis Chapman should not be in Mets fans plans for the future of the franchise.
Today, I’m writing…to re-state that opinion.
Yes, Chapman has met with Mets officials. Yes, he was “said” to be “considering” the Mets. But for the money he wants, do you even want the Mets to spend much on a pitcher who is said to have, “a ways to go before he's ready to pitch in the major leagues, physically and emotionally”?
Don’t get your hopes up, Mets fans.
In fact, wouldn’t you rather see the team spend the $40-60 million he’s asking for in a bunch of different places?
