Heyman: Mets sign Shaun Marcum

Shaun Marcum has a deal with the # mets

Marcum will be nice add for # mets rotation. Team still working on a reliever and an outfielder (hint. Initials MB)

Love it. There is real upside here. Call me crazy, but I could see Marcum + D'Arnaud + Buck out-produce what we got out of Dickey + Thole + Nickeas.

That's a solid move. Mets should have a good rotation.

Ha, my job leaves me sitting and staring at my computer/phone a lot of the time.  This really, really helps pass the time.

Good deal. If his elbow holdes up, he will be a very nice add to the middle of the rotation.

Does this open the door to deal a SP for an OF?

ALL IN, ALL THE TIME!!

This makes it even more likely that the Mets go to a 6-man rotation.  Everyone in that rotation could gain from being worked less.

I'm assuming he means Michael Bourn.

I just figured that out, too.  I would hate the Mets signing Bourn.  Terrible offense.  Kirk and Cowgill can provide just as much as Bourn.

Best possible signing of the remaining FA pitchers. Glad it wasn't Pavano or Young. This can work out in a number of ways. He can put up solid numbers for a full year receive a qualifying offer and net an extra pick. He can perform well and be used as a trade chip. His signing can free up the Mets to trade a SP, Niese or Gee, with the promotion of Wheeler not to far off. The only way this doesn't work well is if he gets hurt, decent chance, or he pitches well below is expected performance.

Great signing. I hope SA is really going to get another reliever and definitely an outfielder. Not thrilled if it is Michael Bourn, but I would take him over Mike Baxter or anything else in our outfield.

Re: Heyman: Mets sign Shaun Marcum 


I guess it makes a little more sense if you frame it as sign Marcum.....hope he refuses off-season tender....get pick......replace pick planning to be lost when looking to sign Michael Bourn.   


Marcum is a terrific pitcher........when he's healthy.   That's been far from a certainty.   It's def a rotation upgrade....hard to disagree with that.

+1...that pretty much sums it up from my perspective.

Just remembered, this is the 1st Major League FA contract handed out this off-season by the FO. At least they got it out of the way before the start of February.

Nice job. Marcum is just as good as Dickey. 2 years ago milwaukee gave up Lawrie to get him.

Good signing.....but I still don't see them trading a SP before July.

I like it.

oct... as good as Dickey?? Come on. Marcum isn't going to dominate the league and win a Cy Young...but definitely like this to round out the rotation and get a vet in the mix.

PLEASE no on Michael Bourn.

You can't just offer any contract and get compensation -- it has to be at the average of the top 125 MLB contracts. That will be something like $14M next year. He first has to have a pretty good year to be worth making that offer...
