Exactly and what is the delay with Peterson

Peterson may be holding out for a few bucks. A smart agent would've waited to see how much they had left in their pool and tried to squeak out an extra piece of pie.

Also, I think Oregon was in the playoffs and maybe Peterson didn't want to negotiate until that was over.

I was looking at what the Mets have left if they do sign him for Slot, which is the 380,000+ figure Mack put at the bottom, and that may get the Mets one more decent player. Theyve already signed a few good young prep arms for slot, which is surprising. If I'm a young pitcher with a 90+ fastball and a college that will put me on the mound, I'm going.

Who knows? These later round pitchers the Mets have grab the last few years for a couple hundred grand have been fruitful. Gsellman is the upside here.

Anyone know why Sixto Torres was released? I saw he's in the Royals system now.
