Lets see what the guarantees are, and my guess is this pushes the LHRP search into the non-g'teed bucket. I still say go with Ollie or Siegrest.

I like this move. Its a stabilizing presence that doesn't come with the overplaying of what the guy is like Bartolo had during his time here.

Makes sense given Harvey's exit and Wheeler a potential non-tender, and Montero likely to be cut loose this year at some point finally, which leaves the previously full cupboard pretty bare next year unless someone like Oswalt or Flexen has a monster 2019.

Also, IIRC, Vargas fits the Mets MO as a "pitcher who rakes", and should fit in nicely if he gets rid of the comically poor hitting Gsellman.

I will assume that Wright and/or TJR goes the 60 to open the spot. Monty will be the new Reynolds.

Not a "sexy" move by any stretch but it was a necessary move due to the question marks of the starting rotation.

That's a "Mets MO" ?? Really??

I thought that Gsell's inability to swing the bat was bc he was protecting his left shoulder.

I can't believe this is a 2 yr deal. :shock:

That was 2016. He swung it last year. He should go back to not swinging.

He had the highest obp on the staff last season (>20 PAs).
