I hope this doesn’t add to the list of big names that took Mets money and couldn’t perform bc of injuries.

$10M seems to be Brodie’s number, so I’ll assume this is another 10M 1 year deal.

1 year and 2 player options per Passan. :shock:

So if he sucks, Steve Cohen will be saddled with paying him... nice parting shot.

Great signing. Need 2 out of Betances, Diaz, Familia to bounce back and the pen can actually be a strength. Plus Lugo locking down the middle innings.

If Brodie signs a backup C, all 26 roster spots will be accounted for barring injuries...from what i can tell all players are slated to enter spring healthy unless we dont know about an injury. All 25 players are players who have a major league track record of success (even if its short).

Odds are he won't suck (then again we could have said the same about Diaz)...he'll likely either pitch well or blow out his arm/another body part.

What the heck do they see in Rhame, jeez?! Haggerty looks like a pretty good 26th man to me.

Interesting....Looks like a possible convoluted "risk" signing....I bet 2020 pays him less than $5 million,while the subsequent 2 year player options are at least $8-$10 million per year. If he is great, we get him cheap for one year and he can then go out and get more in years 2 and 3. If he's hurt or awful, we are stuck for the smaller amount in 2020 and pay him the max of $21-$25 million over the full 3 year period for taking the risk. This works for the player either way. It works for the Mets if he comes back solid in 2020.
