K-Rod Signing Could Come Within The Hour
Many sources are now feverishly caught up in the K-Rod frenzy this morning.
We will be closely monitoring this story and posting and new relevant information.
Earlier today, Jon Heyman confirmed what was being widely reported since late last night, that the Mets were on the verge of signing their primary target, and record breaking All Star closer, Francisco Rodriguez.
Heyman was a guest on Boomer and Carton this morning and said,
“It’s as good as done and an announcement could come in a day, or an hour, or any minute.”
This morning on the “Mike and Mike” show on ESPN, they announced that
“It’s practically a done deal according to our sources. The Mets may soon be able to boast the best closer in the National League if not all of baseball. Great job by the Mets.”
This morning on NY1, they quoted a New York Mets team source who told them,
“It’s going to get done.”
Joel Sherman of the NY Post, first broke the story when he reported comments from K-Rod’s agent, Paul Kinzer.
“I am more optimistic than I have ever been” about finalizing a deal between the single-season save leader and the Mets.”
Early this morning, both Paul Kinzer and K-Rod announced to reporters, that do not have any further meetings scheduled with other teams.
The deal is reported to be for about $37 million guaranteed over three years.
We will continue to update this story as events warrant it.
