Francisco Lindor is off to the worst start of any big money free agent since Bobby Rayburn.

Those are rough numbers, BABIP or no BABIP. 52% GB seems crazy high.

The contract size and sub .200 BABIP (as of tonight) is certainly resulting in a lot of NYC grumbling.

I hear that Bobby Bonilla will be there for the signing. Anyways, congrats Mets fans. This bumps Lindor's price a few bucks in all my remaining drafts since I always have at least one or two people who won't bid on players about to leave their teams.

If you eat, thank a farmer, possibly from Iowa.

You would think Ken Davidoff was writing for the Des Moines Register.

If Lindor wants to re-up at high dollars for a shorter term, something like $200 million over five years with opt-outs, then the Mets should sign off on that. Why should they buy the whole cow, though, when they can purchase the milk at a reasonable rate for one year?

Joel Sherman:

We have seen this before. Carlos Beltran as a free agent and Johan Santana in a trade were generally preordained to the Yankees. The Mets landed both. Yet, this feels different. Because as big as it is, it feels like an appetizer of what the Mets can — and now likely — will do. This plays like the beginning of the beginning of not merely dabbling in the heavyweight division when it comes to stars, but residing there under Cohen.

Said by Sandy Alderson with a big smile:

“There are many players that you watch and you appreciate. There are other players you watch and you smile. That smile is not just a function of appreciation, but also kind of an empathetic reaction to how they play the game, I think Lindor’s the kind of player that makes one smile.”
