Another former Met returns. Like it. He’s pretty much exactly what they need. A durable lefty. I was surprised to read he lead the AL in wins last year.
Not surprised to read his nickname is...Vargy...


I don't know if he's durable if he missed most of 2015 and 2016 from Tommy John and he's 35. I think he's very hit or miss but at 2/16 I think he's a good gamble and a solid get by the mets.


That's my issue with the Colon comparisons (Colon pitched 164, 152 and 190 innings the three years before he got here)...yes he's usually reliable 'when' he pitches but he hasn't pitched a full season at reliable level since 2014. Unless you want to consider the Jekyll-Hyde season last year as reliable.

Thanks ralf. I was all about getting Lynn and sacraficing the pick, but maybe this works out better. Not a bad pickup if he doesn't run out of gas by July. I don't know what to make of this offseason. On one hand, the Mets picked up some serviceable major league players to fill holes on the roster...Vargas, Bruce, Frazier, Swarzak, Gonzo, Reyes. But on the other hand, the Mets picked up some serviceable major league players. Ya know what I mean?

Vargas would have been high to turn down a QO (and the Royals would have been high to have offered him one).

Offering Vargas a QO is a fireable offense.
