The Mets had a great comeback last night capped with a David Wright home run, his first of the season and the first regular season home run for a Met at CitiField. The problem is that the comeback came in the 5th inning and only tied the game. The Mets would not score another run [...]

According to reports Pedro Feliciano has agreed to a 1 year, $1.65 million contract and avoids arbitration. You’ve got to love it when guys with losing records get 50% raises.
According to Jon Heyman the Mets and Ryan Church have agreed to a $2.8 million deal that will avoid an arbitration hearing. There are four Mets still set to go to arbitration. They are starting pitcher John Maine, reliever Pedro Feliciano and outfielders Jeremy Reed & Angel Pagan.
