They signed him for seven years but backloaded the contract so this year it is only $10MM, $15MM for the three years after that, $35MM for the […]
I'm a lifelong Mets fan who loves writing and talking about the Amazins' 24/7. From the Miracle in 1969 to the magic of 1986, and even the near misses in '73 and '00, I've experienced it all - the highs and the lows. I started Mets Merized Online in 2005 to feed my addiction and interact with other passionate Met fans like you. Follow me on Twitter @metsmerized.

For those Mets fans hoping that Kansas City ace Zach Grienke could somehow end up in a Mets uniform this offseason, Jon Heyman puts damper on that notion. [tweeted]http://twitter.com/SI_JonHeyman/statuses/29531270680[/tweeted] The 2009 Cy Young winner could be traded this offseason, but he can veto a trade to 15 teams, and based on Heyman’s tweet, the Yankees […]

Congratulations to the World Series Champions, San Francisco Giants. Cain, Lincecum, Bumgarner, Posey, all first round picks, wow, nice job… I imagine that while Nelson Cruz and Josh Hamilton were huddled in the corner pouting, Bengie Molina was jumping up and down alone in the shower and causing a 3.4 magnitude earthquake in the process.
