Jon Heyman of SI.com reported via Twitter that the Mets attempts to try and sign free agent starter Randy Wolf appear to be “fruitless”.
It now appears almost certain that he will sign with the Milwaukee Brewers for three years and approximately $9 million dollars per season.
The Wolf to the Brewers rumors really intensified last night, but earlier today some had reported that the Mets still had a chance to cut in and make a move. However those efforts now appeared to have failed.
The Mets seemingly ignored Randy Wolf a year ago choosing instead to sign Oliver Perez for three years at $12 million per year. Wolf wound up taking a one year deal with the Dodgers and had a solid season.
It’s too bad because he was one of the better pitchers in “Group B” after John Lackey who was all alone in “Group A”.
It’s back to the drawing board for Omar and company as he seemingly gets outbid and out maneuvered by a smaller market team.
I guess everybody is getting in on the act now.
Do you require anymore evidence that the Mets will not be going hard after any of their targets, and that they do no have the stomach for any bidding wars?
