Edwin Diaz

Star closer Edwin Diaz and the New York Mets are in agreement on a five-year, $102 million contract, pending a physical, sources familiar with the deal told ESPN’s Jeff Passan on Sunday.

There’s an opt-out and a full no-trade clause plus a sixth-year option in the contract, sources said. The Diaz deal is the first nine-figure contract ever for a closer, and for the first time, it takes the position into the $20 million-plus range.

Damn, that was quick. A day after the World Series and Cohen locks up our closer for 5 years. That man don’t play.

I Don’t Want Aaron Judge On My Team

24 Oct

First of all, Aaron Judge deserves all the money he’s going to get this off-season and he’s going to win the the AL MVP. Secondly, he’s going to stay a Yankee because there’s no way the pinstripe owner’s give up on their homegrown product and future Hall of Famer. Lastly, we need to concentrate on resigning Brandon Nimmo because frankly speaking we don’t have anyone else to play CF and with the addition of saving some money, that’s why I don’t want Judge on my team.
