Mets Hot Stove: (Non-)Tender is the night

For our evening news wrap-up, some interesting items -- mostly concerning players who were not tendered contracts by their teams. For more on what it means to be non-tendered, please see this article on MLB.com.

MLB.com: Fifty new free agents
Tom Singer reports on the fifty players non-tendered yesterday. Former Met Jason Phillips was one of them. Despite trading with the Braves to reacquire him, the Brewers have non-tendered relief pitcher Dan Kolb, whom they hope to resign. Sure, he was awful with the Braves last season, and he doesn't strike anyone out, but you would think that he would be one guy Omar would be looking at hard. Two years ago he was an effective closer. Can he handle New York? We don't know, but we can say the same about plenty of the other stiffs Omar has already signed, and the unstable Julian Tavares that's still out there.

NY Sports Day: The complete list
Mike McGann has the complete list of non-tendered players.

No Joy In Metsville: They might be Mets
Vinny has a look at how some of the available players might fit in with the Mets -- or not.

Flushings Future: Another look
Jordan Zakarin has his own look at who might be worthwhile of the non-tendered fifty.

Baseball America: Want to be a GM?
Baseball America has a series of articles on how to get a job in baseball, culminating with this roundtable discussion with 4 current GMs. Even if you're an old fart like me that isn't looking for a new career, it's still fascinating. (Some articles require a subscription -- this one didn't.)
