    He had a rubber arm for the Mets. Way too young, RIP.

    Starting to look like this Adam Cromie fella will get the GM job. I know next to nothing about him other than he’s been out of baseball for a hot minute.

    when you factor in injuries that’s a lot of money.

    For sure. Guy hasn't pitched a full season since like 2016? Upset to see him leave because I love him as a player, but it doesn't matter when you can't stay on the field.

    Not sure why the Angels would want to do this - best case scenario is that he comes all the way back, and in that case he's a free agent and will either leave or hold them up for gigantic money. I think this is designed to convince Ohtani that they're serious about winning, so they have a prayer of signing him before he becomes a free agent.

    He left NY for tax reasons..........nvm.

    At least it's a team that I have zero feelings about.

    New York Mets owner Steve Cohen called out Steven Matz's agent for "unprofessional behavior" in a tweet Wednesday morning, one day after the free-agent left-hander opted against rejoining his former team and signed with the St. Louis Cardinals.

    "I'm not happy this morning," Cohen said in his post. "I've never seen such unprofessional behavior exhibited by a player's agent. I guess words and promises don't matter."

    Cohen told the New York Post that Matz and his agent, Rob Martin, had reached out to the Mets about wanting to return and that they were his first choice.



    Matz on Tuesday agreed to a four-year, $44 million deal with the Cardinals, sources told ESPN. He could earn up to $48 million in the deal and will receive a signing bonus, sources said.

    Martin issued a statement Wednesday saying they were aware of Cohen's tweet.

    "It's unfortunate that he chose to take his frustrations to Twitter," Martin said in the statement. "I will not do the same, and instead will take the high road which is consistent with both my character and the character of our client. Steven Matz grew up a Mets fan, loved his time there, and continues to invest in the New York Community through his efforts supporting NY's First Responders.

    "As a result of all that, there was a strong pull to return to the Mets. But ultimately he made the decision he felt was best for him and his family. Steven is and always will be grateful to the Mets and Mets fans, but he now looks forward to his next chapter with the tremendous franchise in St. Louis."

    The left-handed Matz, who was traded from the Mets to the Toronto Blue Jays before the 2021 season, found his stride in the American League East last season, going 14-7 with a 3.82 ERA in 29 starts.

    Blue Jays manager Charlie Montoyo tabbed Matz as one of the team's "unsung heroes" as Toronto threatened for a playoff berth well into the regular season's final week.

    Matz, 30, a second-round pick of the Mets in 2009, pitched for six seasons in New York. He was 31-41 with a 4.35 ERA and 552 strikeouts in 579⅔ innings with the team.

    "[Matz] was a good Met when he was here," Cohen told the New York Post. "I only wish him well. This was about the interaction with the agent."

    Cohen seems like a total douche

    Mets are clearly going for it now. I wonder if this puts McNeil firmly at second base, and means that they won't try to re-sign Baez?



    They still need pitching. It would be nice to re-sign Stroman, but I have no idea what he is thinking about the Mets.

    If Baez is re-signed, I can see the Mets trading McNeil and Dom Smith for pitching.

    If they don't re-sign Baez, that money will probably be shifted to Stroman.

    I would rather keep Stroman in that scenario

    Seems pretty clear that Stroman isn't interested in coming back to the Mets. He was their best pitcher over the course of the full season, but wow, he is quite the diva.

    That’s why I don’t purchase anything that contributes to any of these teams salary.

    These guys are living in fantasy land and whining about making millions.

    Andy Martino is reporting we offered Mad Max over 40/year. Length of contract hasn't been said
