If Pedro Feliciano accepts arbitration tomorrow night - I'll say it's 50-50 - then that'll pretty much blow the little spending money they have. Which is fine; Terry Collins will surely use Feliciano more intelligently than Jerry Manuel did, and then the Mets will have themselves a July trade chip if they don't contend.
Couldn’t agree more.
The Mets don’t have money to spend. $4 million might hinder them, but $4 million isn’t going to be the game-changer to fix the team.
Feliciano will be fine if he stays, and is a chip to trade come midseason. If he doesn’t accept, the Mets get a sandwich draft pick.
I have no problems with this.
