Can you imagine getting paid 9 figures to be a closer?!?!?

$20 million a year to come in and get 3 outs (typically) in 1/3 or 1/4 of a teams games.

That's like $750k per save.

Those Tommy the Trumpet fees aren't cheap. Makes sense to get a large contract to help pay for his entrance theme

This is the new version of the Chapman deal.

the problem with this contract...the Mets are not upgrading their team.

they're spending $100 MM to maintain what they have --- a team that could not get out of the wildcard round

I think the Astros showed the value of a great bullpen. The problem with a contract like this for a closer, though, is that they can fall apart incredibly quickly. It seems like it's fairly common for a guy to go from 40+ saves one season to losing his job the next. On the flip side, it's also very common for a guy to come from nowhere to being an All Star closer.

Doubt you get a response. If you do, it will be "laughing" at an owner who wants to win and actually uses some of his wealth to put into the team. Perhaps some additional snark about how Pressley is greater value considering production and cost.

Are the Mets your favorite team, or the Astros?

You've been white knighting the heck out of Cohen, and this one seems to be a bitter preemptive strike.
