Maybe I was spoiled by last week’s flurry of free-agent signings. Perhaps the Mets should have found a way to space out the news of John Lannan‘s arrival and Omar Quintanilla‘s return. Or maybe I’m just tired of hearing the same stories regurgitated fifteen ways to Sunday since early November.
Will Mets sign Stephen Drew?
Where will Ike Davis wind up?
Lucas Duda will be playing only first base. No he won’t. Yes he will. Nobody’s sure, though we’re sure he’s very uncomfortable playing the outfield.
David Wright is happy.
The Mets are kicking tires on [insert flamethrowing reliever coming off bad year or injury here].
[Insert other team here] has signed [insert free agent here].
A-Rod, blah blah blah.
On the bright side, there has been much more news coming out of Flushing than Milwaukee. Can you believe the Brewers have yet to sign a free agent to a Major League contract?
