Espn News is reporting that Joel Pineiro has agreed to sign a two year deal with the Angels for 16 million dollars. He is the second player in two days to choose another team over the Mets, but at least it wasn't for less money...at least we don't think.
Now that Plan D or C or whatever, hasn't worked, one can only guess what the Mets will do now. It's one thing when a superstar decides to not sign with your organization, but it's another thing when you have mid level players, Type B free-agents not wanting to sign with your organization.
So just when everyone was praising the Mets for their patience with signing Bay and not bidding against themselves, their new philosophy has come back to slap them in their faces.
Is that indeed their philosopy? Or are they just trying to give off the impression like they are really trying to improve their club really aren't? It almost seems like they tease their fans every year. Last year they signed Frankie Rodriguez and had all Met fans salivating...and then nothing. The year before they were able to land Johan, AWESOME, and then.....not much. Is it just me or did it seem like that famous offseason of Pedro, Beltran, Wagner, Delgado was just a way to sell their new SNY channel? Just some things to ponder.
What the Mets do or don't do next, only time will tell.
