Weathers, Oliver Off the Table

Darren Oliver and David Weathers have accepted arbitration from their respective teams. That means they won’t be available on the free agent market.

Too bad, as the Mets could have used either of the veteran relievers, and they might have come at fairly reasonable prices.

Joe Janish began MetsToday in 2005 to provide the unique perspective of a high-level player and coach -- he earned NCAA D-1 All-American honors as a catcher and coached several players who went on to play pro ball. As a result his posts often include mechanical evaluations, scout-like analysis, and opinions that go beyond the numbers.
