The Mets will sign Bartolo Colon to a two-year, $20 million deal, according to multiple reports…
Ike Davis will probably be on the Mets when the Winter Meetings end Thursday, though he’ll likely be traded once James Loney signs a new deal (Rubin, Dec. 11). The Mets considered trading Daniel Murphy this week, but their asking price was ‘substantial,’ according to people checked in on him (Rubin, Dec. 11).
The Mets are clearly looking in to free-agent relief pitchers, while showing interest in John Axford and Kevin Gregg (Duquette, Dec. 11), as well as Chris Perez (Rubin, Dec. 9) and Mitchell Boggs (Sherman, Dec. 9).
Sandy Alderson is willing to give up his top draft pick to sign Stephen Drew, but he’ll need to free up payroll to do it (McAdam, Dec. 10).
