Took some time off, but back on line and looking forward to the Winter Meetings.
Actually, I’m looking forward to this whole Tom Glavine thing coming to an end. His agent said they’ll get it done prior to the Winter Meetings, but we shall see. He’s had more than enough time to make up his mind.
What I don’t like is the Mets losing Chad Bradford, who made a huge impact in the bullpen. This is a guy whose role grew more and more important as the season progressed and this is a hole that needs to be plugged. If it was a matter of giving him a third year, I don’t see why not. The guy has a rubber arm and always shows up. The Orioles are going to get him for three years for $10.5 million, which in the grand scheme of things is chump change for the Mets.
Truth be told, they needed to re-sign Bradford more than they needed to sign Moises Alou.
