Where decisions have been made

MLB: New York Mets at Philadelphia Phillies John Geliebter-USA TODAY Sports

Marcus Stroman accepted the Mets’ qualifying offer yesterday, which may have surprised some. It took a major piece off of the starting pitching free agent market and saw a player essentially bet on himself that he’ll be able to either extend his career in New York via a big contract extension or he do well enough to get a big contract in the offseason before the expected labor war. It’s an interesting choice, but $18.9 million is nothing to sneeze at.

Perhaps Stroman read the market and didn’t like what he saw, maybe he’s already heard from teams that a multi-year deal isn’t happening, maybe he just really likes the Mets. Whatever it was, it was a very interesting decision that Stroman made.

On to the links.
