According to reports the Mets have reached an agreement with Duaner Sanchez on a one year contract for $1,687,500 and avoids arbitration. The deal gives Sanchez a $950,000 raise. Sanchez faded down the stretch last year when it mattered most but in the crazy business of major league baseball he still merited a 128% increase. I got into the wrong business.
There are still five Mets set to go to arbitration. They are starting pitcher John Maine, reliever Pedro Feliciano and outfielders Ryan Church, Jeremy Reed & Angel Pagan. Arbitration figures are to be exchanged tomorrow.
