Wilson Ramos, Mets agree to $19M, 2-year deal

20 December 2018

The good thing is the Mets won't have to part with hurler Noah Syndergaard, who was being mentioned in a trade for Marlins' catcher J.T. Realmuto. Sunday evening, the nine-year veteran reached a two-year contract agreement with the New York Mets, pending a physical, according to The Athletic's Ken Rosenthal.

Facebook responds to claims that it shared users' private messages
Streaming services Netflix ( NFLX ) and Spotify ( SPOT ) had the "ability to read Facebook users' private messages", it said. Other companies mentioned in the Times' report denied using their partnership with Facebook to violate users' privacy.

The plan, per SNY's Andy Martino, is for the Mets to go with a catching corps of Ramos and Travis d'Arnaud. After being traded to the A's, in a deal that was heavily criticized for the lack of return, the Mets have a new GM, they are preaching a new attitude, and they have several impressive new pieces. He spent time with both the Rays and Phillies, hitting.306/.358/.487 (130 OPS+) with 22 doubles, 15 homers and 70 RBI. Quite frankly, I'm shocked to see that Ramos was only able to earn a $19.5 million guarantee over two years. Per Rosenthal, the Mets met with Yasmani Grandal last week, but "did not want to meet price,"lose their second-highest draft pick, and surrender $500,000 in global signing bonus pool money". The 31-year-old also tore his right ACL late in the 2016 season while with the Washington Nationals.

But the major highlight of the day was the emergence of lesser known Indian players earning big in the auction . Indian Test player Hanuma Vihari was sold to Delhi Capitals for Rs two crore, four times his base price.

Ramos crosses another item of the to-do list of new general manager Brodie Van Wagenen. The Mets will turn to the two-time All-Star, who is coming off a strong year with the Tampa Bay Rays and Philadelphia Phillies. The former agent acquired All-Star second baseman Robinson Cano and closer Edwin Diaz from Seattle and also brought back former NY closer Jeurys Familia on a $30 million, three-year deal. While many have assumed that the Mets would simply release d'Arnaud in spring training, the Mets are planning to keep him and shop Plawecki instead, SNY baseball insider Andy Martino reports.
