    That is the Mets owner responding to Steven Matz signing with the Cardinals. Apparently, they were under the impression they would get a final call to match or beat an offer for him and they did not get it.

    This is the second time this offseason, with Thor being the first....love the Mets misery.
    I love how he blames the agent outright. It could simply be Matz telling his agent that he didn't want to go back to New York. I obviously don't know the whole story

    Big Suspenders really blew a gasket on that one, but the Dodgers went outside the box and really beefed up the AAV on a shorter-term deal. There is professional courtesy and I'm not making excuses for the agent if there was a commitment to give the Braves a chance to match, but that's around the time Schuerholz was whining about the economics of baseball so I take anything from that period with a grain of salt.

    This is how sore losers talk, and is the equivalent of blaming the umps.

    Fact of the matter is the Mets are one of the worst organizations from top to bottom, and I wouldn't blame any pitcher for wanting out.

    Only point I was trying to make is that Frazier has had some success with the bat at the major league level. Of course, I keep underestimating Demeritte's ability to free up Anthopoulos to trade Albies.

    The issue with Frazier is he definitely doesn't fit "The Braves Way". AA talked about bringing in guys who fit culture, and if you read about Frazier, I doubt he's that.

    Another factor is you can see why the Mets were declined by so many of the top candidates around the league to take their GM position. You've clearly got an owner who is going to be involved in picking players and the negotiations with agents. Which probably makes for a miserable job as GM.

    Braves' entrants in the Arizona Fall League didn't particularly shine (although Lugbauer's power display was impressive), but Luke Waddell acquitted himself fairly well for a guy who was playing college ball in the spring of 2021. I don't know what his ceiling is, but he's a LHH and played SS at Georgia Tech. He didn't play SS in the Arizona Fall League, but if he shows he can at least stand at the position without making a fool of himself, he could find his way onto the big league club soon, most likely in 2023. Could be a decent back-up.

    Lugbauer hit .346 and had an OPS of 1.145 in 16 games. He struck out 20 times, but I'd definitely say he "shined"

    Any chance AcuŮa get move to first base?

    Duvall at 9 mil isnt that bad for 1 year. Dont see why Acuna cant stay in the outfield. And eventually i think we'll come to terms with Freddie on a new deal. Rosario i'd take back, but obviously depends on the money/years for him. Soler depends on Ozuna's situation.

    That's my point with Wade - he could be the backup NOW - or at least until one of Shewmake or Waddell is deemed "ready", which neither likely will be this season.

    At $700K, it would have been an easy call to DFA Arcia - then they could have circled back to see if Adrianza would have been interested in returning for the same amount he made in 2021. The cost for the TWO of them would be roughly what Arcia's due to make in arbitration by himself. I realize that's not a huge savings - and neither of those guys has Arcia's pop - but every million AA is able to shave with moves like that makes it easier to pay Freeman. I think that's a big part of what was shocking to a lot of people when Pina was signed - that's around $3 million that could've been saved if they would have chosen to carry Contreras as the backup.
    Has there EVER been a statement and question a certain someone should absolutely never have made and asked publicly more than...

    Kinda pathetic to see yourself as a message board knight in shining armor. How impotent does someone have to be in real life to resort to playing hero on a message board?

    Im gonna wait to see how our offseason is handled before i say much about the Pina move. 3 mil for a backup catcher does seem a little rich for a non top of the market team. Maybe AA has more money to play with than any of us thought.

    I remember JS making similar comments about Furcalís agent. He was so angry that he publicly stated the Braves would would never deal with that agent again. I believe they did sign a guy later but not sure if they ever did that again.

    Mets in agreement with free-agent infielder Eduardo Escobar on two-year, $20M contract.

    also, the Orioles are reportedly listening to offers on Mullins. There had been speculation but itís legitimately being reported now.
