The latest on Bronson Arroyo

Free-agent starting pitcher Bronson Arroyo has said he is open to signing with the Mets, who may or may not have interest in him, according to opposing reports.



8:47 am: The Mets are not super high on Arroyo, and a meeting may never take place, according to a team official (Rubin).

8:40 am: The Mets are interested in meeting with Arroyo, but they have yet to set up a meeting with him or his agent (Cafardo).

I bet this is another situation where the Mets have interest… but only to a point. Arroyo will accept a three-year deal. I’m sure the Mets, and most teams, would prefer it be a one- or two-year agreement. So, if he’s pushing himself as a three-year player, maybe Sandy Alderson isn’t ‘super high on him.’ However, at two years, or one, maybe he is…


Dec. 1: Seven teams have contacted Arroyo, but none of them have made a contract offer, yet (Cafardo).

Nov. 30: Sandy Alderson expects to soon meet with Arroyo, who is expected to ask for a three-year deal (Rubin).

Nov. 30: The Mets and Twins are aggressively pursuing Arroyo, although the two sides aren’t close to a deal (Cotillo).

Nov. 19: “I’m open to everybody, and I think New York is great,” Arroyo told WFAN. “I’ve been an East Coast guy my whole life.”

Nov. 1: Arroyo said he would definitely consider signing with the Mets (Martin).

I say throw Seaver a mitt and run him out there. He's probably got more on his fastball than a lot of these guys!

I usually wouldn't even respond to stuff like this but knowing how the mets work, the upper management probably look at this to determine their moves...smh

Not really; isn't there a younger version of him out there that we can use for a year and then trade away for better players when Harvey is healthy?

Yes. Desperately need a decent, durable starter that can pitch 200 innings. Even if Montero & Thor come up, they'll be on limited innings
