Tick Tock Tick Tock

Hey, Felipe, it's almost midnight! Do you have a contract? The non-tender deadline is at midnight. If they offer him a contract, an arbiter (assuming no prior settlement) will decide his salary, somewhere in the $4-5 million range. If they don't tender him an offer, he becomes a free agent.

Here's a list of other non-tender candidates. Johnny Estrada, the switch-hitting catcher, jumps out, but with all the talk of PLo getting the full-time starters job, that might not happen.

Speaking of which... the PLo press conference was today, and Dan Steinberg has the goods. I love the quote from Bowden about how PLo is a winner, baby! All he does is win! Don't you want to be a winner? "He's a winner. He's always won."

(Except for last year when the Mets had a historic collapse, or when they folded in the NLCS the year before... or all those long years with the Dodgers when his innate ability to win couldn't end that decades-long streak where the once-proud franchise couldn't win a solitary game... but other than that, yeah, baby, he's a winner!)
