    Since it was never clear to me that this was even a good idea, I’m certainly not worked up over the possibility of it not happening.

    if it does fall apart, it seems pretty likely that Correa is going to have to give up on the idea of a double-digit-year contract with anyone.

    Scott Boras being Scott Boras. I still have not a worry in the world he signs with us.

    I figured it wasn’t gonna happen. Was taking too long. It is what it is.

    He clearly didn't want to go back to the Twins, and he clearly wanted at least 10 years guaranteed, so it will be fun to see how Boras spins this as a positive outcome for Correa. I suspect that the Mets, like the Giants (and now like the Twins), couldn't get insurance for a double-digit-year contract. It's more interesting to me that they supposedly weren't willing to go past roughly $26 million per year guaranteed on a six-year deal.

    If that’s the case, insurance saved the Mets from themselves.

    I kind of don’t think that the baseball people on the team didn’t really want him and it was Boras sweet talking Cohen into it and it was up to the team to talk him out of it. If we really wanted him they would have went the 6 yrs but $ amount a hint above Minnesota.

    Already have a feeling it’s going to be a super frustrating year at the DH spot. These rookies better produce or we are going to have the same issues as last year.

    Love David but he isn't a HOF. Who knows what could have been if he wasn't plagued with injuries. :(
