Endy Gets Paid

Congrats to Endy Chavez. In 2005, he was traded to Philadelphia, where he played so miserably he wound up being non-tendered that winter. At 28-years-old, he was looking like a real fringe major-leaguer. Then he hooks up with the Mets and makes the most of it, earning a place in all of our hearts -- and now $1.725 million in cold, hard cash. Performance bonuses tied to games played and plate appearances can net him another 100 grand. Good for you, kid.

Also, according to press releases on Mets.com, the Mets have officially signed Scott Schoeneweis (3 years) and Jorge Sosa (1 year).

At his blog for the The Journal News, reports on a conference call with Omar Minaya regarding both pitchers and the state of the rotation in general.

About Mike: I was the original writer on this web site, actually its only writer for the first 15 months of existence. Although I am grateful for the excellent contributions of my fellow writers here, I have no plans of stepping back into strictly an editorial role. I started this thing in the first place because I love to write and I love the Mets, and blogging here keeps me somewhat sane. If you haven't had enough already, more bio info can be found here.

Way to go, Endy. Now THAT is money well spent.

How much Gil Meche can you get for $1.725 million?

Amen, Nostradennis.

I'm glad Endy got to show his stuff in the NLCS. But man, am I sorry he didn't get to play in the Serious! Maybe the Mets'll rectify that oversight this time around.

Whew! Getting ready for Spring over here!

Me, too. Enough hot stove.
