The Mets would like to be the team of the offseason, again.
We’ve made it to Saturday! As many in the game have pointed out, we’re more likely to see activity this weekend than we will be next week, because all physicals need to be completed before the CBA expiration as well. We already have some news to catch you up on from yesterday, so let’s get to it.
In Mariners news…
- Larry Stone at The Seattle Times tells the story of how Scott Servais is revered in his home town to this day.
- I guess it’s a couple of days late for this, but check out the Mariners opinions on Thanksgiving food.

Around the league…
- The Mets were very busy yesterday, headlining a flurry of moves with a four-year, $78 million deal for center fielder Starling Marte.
- You can eliminate one player who has been linked to the Mariners from the free agent pool, as the Mets also signed Mark Canha to a two year contract worth $26.5 million.
- The Mets also beefed up their infield with a two-year, $20 million deal for Eduardo Escobar.
- The Mets might not be done upgrading their infield.
Hearing the Mets are still very serious about a reunion with Javier Báez after spending $124.5 million on Marte, Canha and Escobar today
Expectation is Báez will give them a chance to match any external offer he gets
