On November 29th, 37-year-old Max Scherzer signed a record-breaking $43 million dollar deal with the New York Mets. The eight-time all-star will get a total of $130 million dollars over the next three seasons including an opt-out after the second season. With this unbelievable deal, the Mets now have a total payroll of $268 million dollars which is the highest in baseball history. Mets owner Steve Cohen spoke shortly after the signing stating, “If I don’t win the World Series in the next 3-5 years, I’d like to make it sooner, I would consider that slightly disappointing” (nbcsports). Along with this major deal, the Mets have also managed to acquire all-star outfielder Starling Marte, along with utility man Eduardo Escobar. With all of these signings, the Mets are now a favorite in the National League…and the offseason just started!
