C Rene Rivera settles with Mets - $1.75mil

IMO, this speaks volumes on the lack of confidence this team has with Kevin Plawecki.

It also shows that the Mets were afraid to expose Rivera in a free agent market that is void of decent major league ready catchers.

I liked him and am glad he is staying. great D, great with pitchers, power, lousy average. That package seems better than Plawecki's.

Adam Smith said...

Count me as a Rivera fan. Glad to have him back.

Glad Rene is back. Reminds me somewhat of Jerry Grote. TDA and KPlaw still have a chance to improve but this staff needs a guy like Rivera and respects him as well.
