Todd Frazier staying close to home, signs 2-year deal with Mets

For sure, they'd have to dump a significant salary (reliever David Robertson?) to sign Mike Moustakas, the top free agent third baseman available, and they may have to lose a lesser salary (reliever Dellin Betances?) just to sign Eduardo Nunez for one season. Rosenthal says the deal is pending a physical. He hit a combined.213 with 27 home runs and 76 RBIs last season for the Chicago White Sox and New York Yankees. Last season's Yankees and White Sox third baseman is moving boroughs to join the Mets for the 2018 season. Asdrubal Cabrera will now most likely shift to being the club's full-time second baseman and the prospect of a starting role for Jose Reyes is probably off the table. The Mets lineup figures to be significantly deeper and more powerful with this signing and gives NY a more capable bench offensively. He went 7-for-24 in the ALCS against the future World Series-winning Astros with a home run and four RBI, and had a regular season fielding percentage of.960 with 13 errors, which is above league average at least. He would also become the 2015 MLB Home Run Derby champion in front of his home crowd in Cincinnati where the All-Star Game was being held. At the start of the off-season, the Mets' payroll was expected to drop, angering some fans.

That's not to say Frazier is sitting in a similarly precarious position but that his addition may not make the same kind of impact to New York's offense it might have two or three years ago.

Home Minister Rajnath Singh said on Saturday that Pakistan did not have the strength to separate Kashmir from India. With all our political differences aside, there is no second opinion in Pakistan on the Kashmir dispute .

The Mets will have a new look on both corners after signing aging free agent slugger Adrian Gonzalez to man first base in January. He solidifies the team's infield and gives the Mets another power source in the middle of the lineup.

Frazier already has a unique relationship with one Mets fan.
