Jose Reyes who?
The Mets went out in the wake of Reyes taking his talents to South Beach and inked Jon Rauch for $3.5 million, plus incentives. Sandy Alderson also went out and dealt Angel Pagan to the Giants for Andres Torres and Ramon Ramirez, pending physicals. Then, as if the first two deals weren't enough, they signed Frank Francisco, of chair-throwing fame, to a two-year deal, also pending a physical.
Some night, eh Mets fans?
Update: Looks like Francisco is getting $12 million over two years. I guess we know who the closer will be next year.
Long Aside: I don't know how to deal with breaking news on this blog any more. The Mets blogsphere is totally saturated with everyone trying - and failing - to be MetsBlog. Twitter is inundated with beat writers, columnists, bloggers, fans, idiots, trolls and more trying to get their 15 second of fame. Help.
