The Rangers are the “most aggressive” on Josh Hamilton

Like, they’re going up to him, shoving him, knocking his books on the ground, calling him “dweeb” and stuff. Pretty ugly scene:

 

Insert the “wow, it would be surprising to see him sign back with the Rangers” stuff, followed by the “given the surprises we’ve seen at the past three Winter Meetings, nothing is unexpected” stuff.

Mets trade Wilmer Font to the Blue Jays

The Mets announced a few minutes ago that they have traded Wilmer Font to Toronto for cash considerations.

Font was acquired by the Mets from Tampa Bay for a player to be named later back in early May. That player to be named later was later named: Neraldo Catalina. Catalina is 19 and is playing rookie ball right now. The Mets have now turned him into cash. I suppose we’ll see if that was a good idea in a few years.

As for the Jays, they get a pitcher who posted a 5.79 ERA in 10 relief appearances for the Rays and then started three games and relieved 12 in New York to the tune of a 4.94 ERA. On the season he has a combined K/BB ratio of 42/18 in 45 innings.

He’s an arm. He cost cash. That’s about all I have to say about that.
