Do we have him signed beyond this year or is he on a 1 yr deal?
There will be plenty of teams looking to make him there lead off batter next season if he is a FA..
He wont be cheap to hang on to.But he is so valuable I hope the Mets pay him..He's unreal insurance for the lead off or #2 spot in the lineup if anyone goes down and he is a great 4th outfielder cause he can play all 3 spots..Plus he is fast as balls and can be used later in games as a pinch runner if needed..
With Floyd gone next season the Mets need to hang on to Endy Chavez..They have more money to spend then most teams and with no salary cap they need to just pay him market value..
He wont get a break the bank type deal from anyone but someone will pay this kid some good cash..I hope its the Mets.
Correct... while Omar is doing a great job locking up core players, he should extend an offer to Chavez that's at least a 2 year deal.
Unless Omar offers him a ridiculously sweet deal, why would Endy sign a deal now? This may be the one time in his career that he has a chance to cash in --he's not going to sign a deal he that is a "nice" contract for a 4th outfielder. More likely, he'll wait until the offseason and sign with some team that legitimately needs a CF and leadoff hitter.
We have our leadoff hitter. We need more of a power bat in RF. I highly doubt we go into next year with Endy slated to start, as much as I think he's done a great job this year.
