    So who is getting demoted? Lagares or Granderson? Cause Conforto needs to play. He's a budding superstar.

    Smart deal. Go a lil heavy on the money, but don't go long term.

    Lageres will be Cespedes' caddy, late inning w/ lead defensive replacement. New guy they signed will be 4th outfielder.

    Yeah like my O's did with Chris Davis... 7 years 161 million.. O's will be paying him till he's 51.

    Strikeouts too many times with RISP for me... But Baltimore loves him.

    Haven't followed baseball in a long time, but it is better to give up more money up front for a shorter deal and that goes for all sports with a cap. BTW, I hate the Metropolitans.

    If I'm the Mets and have to cut bait w/ Harvey, I try to trade him to the Orioles. Band box park and having to face Yankees, Red Sox and Blue Jays. Would cost Harvey millions.

    I'm sure the Mets are hoping MLB does decide to have an NL dh after next yr. Then the Cespedes deal is a steal. I'm glad it is a short deal, Mets will have no excuse to not pay some if their pitchers in a couple of yrs

    Every sport they ruined has a cap, makes me sad. The NHL was awesome, then they went and killed it.

    Good move.
    Remember, the Mets sucked last year until the summer.
    They will be hard to beat this year.

    METS have a long history of giving big contracts to the wrong people....... $25 mill is a lot to pay 1 player.Could easily bite METS in the ass once again...............

    If he has a decent year, it's basically a 1 year deal. He can opt out after the first year. I personally don't like him. He's not a good defensive centerfielder, he was horrible in the post season, and the jackass has to play golf every day. I don't see how that doesn't fuck up your baseball swing. But the mets desperately needed another bat.

    Only team to make him an offer was the Nationals at 5yrs/$100 mill. Taking this contract from the Mets was a no brainer.

    Lol yesterday Russo kept reporting Cespedes to the Nationals as a fact because he saw in update on his mlb network app.


    Mlb Network is to Russo what AGT was to Howard.

    No brainer deal for both sides. Mets are now a legit contender next 3-4 years.
