We have to start watching now to see which teams draft relievers we'll be interested in come July 2020.

I know it's 2018 and all we have to say "XX WAR!!!" to win any baseball internet debate, but 36 homers and 100 RBI is still 36 homers and 100 RBI. Saw enough of Bruce last season to know he was worth something.

Something else of value is the guy averaged 151 games a year over the past 8 season. That surely has to be worth a lot to anyone that follows the Mets.

I don't think this was a steal, but I do think he is a better fit than a lot of the guys out there, and is a lot more likely to deliver value in accordance with what he's getting paid. Now let's go sign Duda and Frazier so we can make Nitey really mad.

I thought the Mets only had 10 million to spend?

Great move. What was his projected contract? I'd think this is lower than expected.

So what happened to the 'OMGZ he'll never sign with us now that we traded him' rationale for not trading him or the other guys we dumped?

Is it really? I mean for all our cynicism I didn't actually think the Mets would LITERALLY do nothing this offseason, although I certainly think this'll be the highlight. And bringing back Bruce was safe and unimaginative which is the speciality of the front office.

That said I like the player, admired how he came in last year after a bad first impression and proved he was much better than that and could handle NY.

I'm curious how the money is spread out. Could be 8, 15, 16 or something. Anyhoo - we're better with Bruce than without and the offer is fair, not bank breaking but not a bargain deal either. Happy to have him back. Good solid move.

(derp - I posted too late, but my guess wasn't too far off).
