The Mets agree to a deal with Wilson Ramos



Free-agent catcher Wilson Ramos came to terms on a two-year, $19 million contract with the Mets on Sunday, a source told MLB.com. Daniel Alvarez Montes of El Extrabase was the first to break the news. The club has not confirmed.
The deal is pending a physical.

Ramos' signing likely means the end of the Mets' pursuit of Marlins catcher J.T. Realmuto after New York was previously considered the favorite to acquire him. Rosenthal said the Mets met with Yasmani Grandal, the other top free-agent catcher on the market, last week, but found the asking price too steep and didn't want to surrender the Draft pick it would take to sign him. The club was also reluctant to create holes elsewhere on the roster by trading for Realmuto.
This is a great move. Well I can't really tell if this is a great move on the field yet but it is  great deal on paper and awesome to see the Mets are trying to be a real ballclub. This is going to be great topic for The State of the Mets panel on Jan 19th 2019 at QBC 2019.
