The Reyes and Wright deals were excellent deals for the Mets org. At least Wright is getting a nice salary for his final 3 years of that deal, unlike Reyes, who was hoodwinked by his agent.

The Mets have put a hammer down regarding who they believe their future lies with. Smart Org. moves.

In jest, I am surprised they did not lock up Maine after he extended his scoreless streak to 23+ yesterday. :rolleyes:
