The Mets and Lucas Duda have settled on a one-year deal worth $1.6375 million, avoiding an arbitration case. Their really wasn’t much doubt that the Mets and Duda would settle as they had no intention of attacking the slugger’s fluctuating confidence in a court case over a few hundred thousand bucks. 

The Mets have now settled all seven of their arbitration cases. Their payroll is now at a shade under $87 million, which was the exact payroll of the 2013 Mets. The Mets may be done signing players to major league deals at this point but this is the time in the off season where bargains can be had, such as SS Stephen Drew

  1. Mike Young says:

    Steve – Mission accomplished. Now it is up to these 7 players to become the major leaguer everyone hopes they will become. If they sign Drew I am all for it. If he becomes this years version of Michael Bourne then so be it. In hind sight the Mets didn’t really need Bourne after all. We will soon see what happens or doesn’t happen with Drew. Mike

    • Steven Inman says:

      Mike when I said Drew was the next Bourn, I meant it seems like Bourn last year, that the Mets and Bourn were the best fits for each other yet Bourn stayed on the market until February signing elsewhere with an unforeseen team. I believe the same result will come with Drew.

  2. When people are sharing a good big laugh, they are in the moment of love, and
    truly in one with the higher Divine. You have probably heard of the great
    Law of Attraction before and how you attract into your life, people, circumstances and
    situations in proportion to the thoughts you entertain within your mind.
    A majority of studies suggest that WBV training is as effective, and in some cases more
    effective, than traditional resistance training in eliciting gains in muscular strength.
