Mets Sign K-Rod!
Even the Associated Press is reporting it, so it must be true — the Mets have signed Francisco “K-Rod” Rodriguez to a three-year, $37M+ contract.
Supposedly, the contract is two years guaranteed, with the third year vested based on appearances. Or something. Who cares? The Mets have their 2009 closer, and can now move on to more pressing matters. Such as, who the heck is going to pitch the first eight innings?
K-Rod may be in NYC tomorrow for a physical, with the official announcement to be made soon thereafter.
Nice, fair deal for both sides.
