I'm a 16 year-old blogger, high school student, and lifelong Mets fan. I've been blogging about the Mets in some form or another for about four years. I embrace the new age, sabermetric way of thinking, but also recognize the importance of scouting and player devlopment.

    According to Mike Puma Mets had Bourn in agreement on years and $$, but negotiations were down to small details such as a hotel suite on the road. If it turns out that a hotel suite kept Bourn from signing with theMets, that will be the most Mets thing ever! live scores

    I was also wondering if the Mets were going to be the ones that
    ultimately wound up with Bourn, but I’m glad they side-stepped it as a baseball fan. Yes,
    he might still be productive in 3-4 years when the team is ready to
    compete, but there should be alternative free agents on the market then
    that will make more sense. I’d like to look at the potential of him
    having signed with the Mets from an economic standpoint (I write for
    http;//baseballrethought.com) and if he would have actually provided any
    increased attendance figures or the sort.

    All that said, it’s kind of amazing that the Mets spent effectively $0
    this offseason on free agents…that’s a lot of self-discipline to not
    give-in to the desire to quickly make your team marginally better.
    Interested to see where they’ll end up in a few years.
