Sigh. The Mets? He’s making a mistake. The Phillies I could see, but the Mets simply aren’t going to score enough runs for him to succeed, plus they’re a bad defensive team. Good luck to Tom, but he probably just cost himself a shot at 300 wins. It’s not even all that much more than the Braves offered, though it’s all guaranteed.
I don’t know what the Braves will do next. Nothing much seems to be going on on the Maddux front, but if they don’t go after him I assume they’ll trade for a pitcher. The Expos almost have to trade one, if not Bartolo Colon then Javier Vazquez or Tony Armas Jr.
