According to Joel Sherman of the NY Post, with the San Diego Padres just announcing they have signed free agent pitcher Jason Marquis, and the Marlins signing Placido Polanco, the Mets are now the only team that have yet to sign a MAJOR LEAGUE free agent this offseason.

They have a reported $20-25 million to spend, and last week Alderson said he could just end up keeping it because free agents are too pricey. It’s starting to look like he really meant it. More dough for Fred, another nice Christmas bonus for Sandy…

I think the strategy all along was to wait and see if the world would end tomorrow. Anyway, who’s up for buying some Mets season tickets?
