The flurry of free-agent signings has begun! We may be at the beginning of a blizzard!
Omar Quintanilla returns to the Mets on a minor-league deal with a spring training invite. Great deal, from my perspective, because it means the Mets won’t waste money on Ronny Cedeno. Don’t get me wrong, I like Cedeno, but it looked to me like Quintanilla could provide the same if not better performance at the MLB minimum. And as long as the Mets are counting pennies, it doesn’t make much sense to waste money on lavish luxuries such as Ronny Cedeno.
