Luis Vizcaino Off the Market
The Colorado Rockies have signed setup reliever Luis Vizcaino to a two-year contract; the cash part of the deal has not yet been announced.
What happened to the four-year demands?
In addition, the Dodgers have reached an agreement with Hideki Kuroda. I don’t think the Mets were ever seriously interested in the Japanese hurler, but that’s one less arm available.
Not much left on the market at this point. The fragile Octavio Dotel is the only big-name reliever left. Matt Wise is looking more and more like a fantastic idea. In fact if the Mets signed Wise, and Duaner Sanchez looks healthy in February, it might make sense to move Aaron Heilman to the rotation as suggested here a week ago. (And yes I may harp on this idea several times between now and March.)
Let’s go Omar, make a move already!
