    If he pitches...
    The Mets will sign Tim Byrdak to a minor league deal, Adam Rubin of ESPNNewYork.com reports. Mike Silva first reported the sides were close to a deal, and the Mets have since confirmed the agreement (Twitter links). Mike Mosa of Only Baseball Players represents Byrdak, who turned 39 last month.

    It's unclear whether Byrdak will contribute in 2013. He underwent surgery to repair a torn anterior capsule in his left shoulder in September, while also undergoing a minor knee operation. In 30 2/3 innings over the course of 56 appearances this past season, Byrdak posted a 4.40 ERA with 10.0 K/9 and 5.3 BB/9. Those numbers match up with his career 4.30 ERA and his career strikeout (8.7 K/9) and walk (5.4 BB/9) numbers.

    This sounds promising.... Wright has sought a deal similar to Zimmerman's 7/125 deal with the Nats

    from Roto:

    Andy Martino of the New York Daily News reports that the Mets have made David Wright a seven-year offer "well in excess of $100 million."



    This is quite a different perspective than Ken Rosenthal's reported offer of six years and $100 million, but such is life during the Hot Stove. Negotiations are ongoing and it's not clear whether a deal is imminent. Recent reports have indicated that Wright wants a seven-year deal in the range of $125 million. If Martino's source can be believed, it seems like the two sides are getting closer to that magic number.

    I can't see anything happening with KC, as Myers, Perez & Gordon are not being offered up...I can see the Mets working out something with the Angels for an OF'er since Grienke is not coming back to LA (Trumbo?)

    From Roto:

    The Royals have "talked to the Mets about" knuckleballer R.A. Dickey, according to Jon Heyman of CBS Sports.



    But Heyman doesn't see a fit there because Dickey is 38 years old and under contract for only one more season. And the Royals aren't willing to give up young catcher Salvador Perez or top prospect Wil Myers to acquire him. The Mets have been discussing a contract extension with Dickey for at least the past two months. If they can't work anything out, it's highly possible that Dickey will be dealt.

    We as Mets fans didn't have a lot to cheer about this past year, and R.A. was one of our only bright spots, if they want to start getting fans out to the ballpark I think they need to resign him, if at all reasonably

    Mets Extend David Wright
    By Tim Dierkes [November 30 at 2:02am CST]
    The Mets and David Wright have agreed to the largest contract in franchise history, according to WFAN's Ed Coleman. Coleman says it's seven years and $122MM in new money, which can be considered an eight-year, $138MM deal if the value of Wright's previously-exercised 2013 club option is included. In that sense, Wright passes Johan Santana's $137.5MM deal from February 2008. Wright is represented by ACES.

    Over a 40+ year history, the good majority of the time... Yes.

    Let's see, around '69 you had your core of Harrelson, Seaver, et al, and they went out and got Agee, Grote, and Clendennon... Early 70's, same core, added Mays...late 70's are a wash... Early 80's like I said, have Gooden and Strawberry, add Kid and Mex... Fast forward to 00's, have Wright and Reyes, add Delgado and Pedro... I don't see the facts backing you up there ...
