Washington-Well, if Francisco Lindor’s 11-year tenure with The Mets was as dramatic as the discussion of trading him to the top spot, it would be Citi Field (Citi Stadium). Field) experienced a hell.
Steve Cohen landed his first big fish. Lindor broke the record, if not This recording. The Mets can show their excellent mentality in the game against the Nationals in the National Park on Thursday night, start their 2021 season, and happily look forward to the welcome of the heroes, waiting for Lindo in the opening match on April 8.
Good for the metropolis. Good for Lin Duo. It is good for Major League Baseball.
As Lindor’s open day deadline approaches, the recently acquired shortstop and his new team agreed on Wednesday night for a 1
Of course, some professional skeptics like me might think that it makes more sense to know each other for a year before getting into the deep layers of the relational database. Perhaps such caution will prove wise in due course. If this happens, it will present another major test to the owner of the richest man in baseball: How much will it cost to eliminate the error?
However, there is no reason for Debbie Downer to rule this day. Cohen acquired the team from the financially damaged Wilpens and Katz, so it is necessary to verify the hope of the Mets fans that they no longer need to be observers of the baseball star game.
Lindor received more than twice the $150 million that the Blue Jays gave George Springer the best free agent in the winter, more than Springer and JT Realmuto ($115.5 million from Phillies) combined, and three times the $102 million that Trevor Bauer received from Dodgers. Times more. , Although in the delayed package.
Lindor will definitely accept his $385 million request until November. This figure will set an industry benchmark for “new money”, exceeding the $365 million the Dodgers provided to Mucci Bates last year. Instead, Lindor decided to guarantee Padres (Fernando Tatis Jr.) shortstop Fernando Tatis (Fernando Tatis Jr.) more than 14 years of income of 340 million US dollars. It must be a good choice.
At the same time, the Met canceled its $325 million offer, which in itself was reasonable. They obviously want to do this after boarding Lindor from the Indians in January. Lindor joins Pete Alonso, Dom Smith, Jeff McNeil, Brandon Nimmo, JD Davis and senior catcher James McCann until 2022, everyone is under control. Let the upcoming free agent Michael Conforto continue to play this season, and then seriously compete for his service in free agency.
When the Mets were working here on Wednesday, manager Luis Rojas said of Lindo: “He brings a lot of things. His personality makes him the real him. He is attractive to everyone. Li. It feels like he has been here for a while [than a couple of months]. “
He will stay here longer now. If Lindo did not receive the $400 million that Alonso defended for him, then he would be very, very good for himself. Very good for the Mets team that is changing the brand. For Major League Baseball (MLB), one of its most energetic stars insists on the sleeping giant of the jewelry franchise.
Real drama, real fun, from now on. Lindor was busy, and suddenly, life with Mets became more interesting.
