The Mets' Facebook page indicates that they've signed Michael Cuddyer to a two-year deal.

Bad move. Not only is old and the contract they gave him but add in their 1st round pick.

2 years and $21 million for a 36 year old that played in 44 games last year and they lose their first round pick next year.

The Reds signed Donnie Veal [!] to a minor league contract. It did not cost them a first round pick.


edit -- it was the Braves, not the Reds that signed Veal.

Not sure what the Mets are doing. They are trying to go young while at the same time signing an old, injury-prone outfielder who can't play defense while at the same time giving up a first round pick.

Actually, the Reds, like the White Sox, finished in the bottom 10 of the overall standings. This means the Reds and White Sox can sign qualified Free Agents without losing a draft pick. This makes it easier for the Sox to pursue the top FAs like Victor Martinez without paying the price of a lost draft pick.

Red Sox GM Ben Cherington said Tuesday he met the day before with Gustavo Vazquez, Sandoval's agent, and that the sides had a "constructive" conversation.
Vazquez has said publicly that Sandoval is seeking a six-year deal, which would take him through his age-34 season. Various projections have forecast him to be in line for a salary in the $90 million to $100 million range.

Tigers re-sign V. Martinez to a 4-year, $70M deal.

http://espn.go.com/mlb/story/_/id/11...four-year-deal

Wow! He was great in 2014, but that's a lot of money for a 36-year old. Who knows, maybe it'll work out great for them but the Tigers will be paying a ton in salary to aging players over the next few years.

Damn. Really wanted to see Martinez sign here. But for that money, maybe it's best the Sox lost out on him.

I wanted him too but not at that price or contract length. If he were 32 or 33 years old, I would have given him 4 years. An expensive 4 year deal to a 36 year old would have been a very risky gamble by the Sox. I understand why the Tigers did it. They had to retain Cabrera's protection and their window to win with this group is rapidly closing. The Sox have the flexibility to be a bit more patient in this offseason and wait for the right deal.

Martinez, Cabrera , Verlander.
If Kenny was still our GM, we would get Martinez in Year Four of the contract. Kenny always (eventually) gets his man.

The Sox would lose their second round pick if they signed a qualifying offer free agent.
