    The Royals have claimed George Kottaras.

    Also, Shaun Marcum got one year at $4 million with incentives from the Mets.

    Mets Close To A Deal With Brandon Lyon
    The Mets are closing in on a deal with free agent reliever Brandon Lyon, tweets Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com. Lyon would be the third right-handed bullpen piece added this week after the signings of Scott Atchison and LaTroy Hawkins. MLB.com's Anthony DiComo tweets this move will probably complete the Mets' bullpen makeover.

    65-97. They battle the Marlins all year long for last place.

    I think they might get to 70 wins if everything falls perfectly - agree they'll duke it out with Marlins for the cellar. Looking forward to big series between Alderson's Blue Jays and the Yankees.

    I say 75-87. Johan gets traded. Harvey throws about 180 innings with a 3.25 era. Wheeler comes up in June, throws 100 innings 3.50 era. Parnell develops into a good, not great relief pitcher. Ike Davis hits .260 35/95. Wright .285 25/90. d'arnaud gets 350 AB, .275 13/50. Duda .260 24/70, bad defense and he looks like 1b is his best position. The Wilpon's do not sell the team and pay all there bills. Alderson goes into 2013 offseason with a 40 mil payroll with at least 2 OFs needed and a true closer needed. Attendence will go down. Young players will play hard for Collins, saving his job and fans who do show up will see hustle and get a glimpse of the nucleus of a team being built the right way.

    Team will scrap and be near .500 in early July and a few games off wild card. Many here will clamor and rant and rave when trades are not made to make a run at the post-season. Oh wait that was the last few years. Really 75-87 seems about it. The offense will begin and end most games with 2-6 Murphy, Wright, Davis, Duda. Maybe Buck catches fire with the HRs, Tejada steps up to a solid .270-.280 with 50-60 BB 25 2B Kirk hits like he did for the few weeks when he looked good (that did happen right I didn't imagine it), but otherwise its about watching young guys turn into bona fide MLB players and if the stars align stars themselves (Harvey, Wright rebounds to MVP levels, Davis). It is really a season of I hope these young guys not only don't suck but actually are good.

    Clubhouse man's respect for Jose Reyes far greater than Sandy Alderson's.

    Yeah that's pretty lame.

    No one's wearing 43?

    Other than Pedro, 45 has mainly been used for relievers--Tug, Franco, Reardon, Rick Baldwin, DiPoto, Paul Gibson, Izzy, last year Justin Hampson. Just sayin'. Interestingly, the only position player to wear 45 in the regular season was Mark Carreon.

    I could see Wheeler wearing #45 especially since he wore it at Binghamton and it's one of the few numbers available right
    now.Plus,I wouldn't want to see a position player wear it for the Mets because as you said the only one who's ever wore it
    was Mark Carreon and to my knowledge Carreon has been reported as missing for years and has never been found.

    So will I. I think we will be worse than last year, but not by a whole lot. Maybe 3-6 games worse than last year.
