Bengie Molina, one of the Mets targets from the start, has lowered his asking price according to FOX Sports.
Molina, who had been holding at three years, is now “willing to sign for two years.”
Jon Paul Morosi writes that this raises “the likelihood of a long-expected union with the New York Mets.”
This isn’t exactly new news, as the Mets have seemed unwillingly to go three years on Molina. The Mets are believed to have offered two years to Molina and have been rumored to offer a one year contract plus an option for a second.
Now that Molina is willing to sign for two years, the marriage between the team and the player are one step closer to a deal.
