Mets Settle Almost All Arbitration Cases

The Mets Wednesday settled all of their potential arbitration cases except for newcomer Chris Bassitt. Let’s check how my guesses matched up to the reality. I am also including MLB Trade Rumor’s estimates, since it is allegedly the experts, and I like to see how my snap decisions measure up with its grueling hard work.

Player                         Actual            MLBTR       Blogging Mets
Edwin Diaz               $10.2m          $10.4m             $10m
Pete Alonso              $7.4m             $7.3m               $10m
Brandon Nimmo    $7m                 $6m                  $7m
Dominic Smith       $3.95m            $4m                 $4m
Seth Lugo                $3.925m          $3.7m              $5m
Trevor Williams     $3.9 m             $3.8m              $3m

Jeff McNeil             $3m                  $2.8m              $5m
J.D. Davis               $2.76m             $2.7m              $4m
Miguel Castro        $2.62m             $2.6m              $3m
Joey Lucchesi        $1.15m              $1.6m              $2m
Tomas Nido           $890k               $900k              $2m
Luis Guillorme      $875k               $700k              $2m
Drew Smith            $750k              $900k              $2m

So I did pretty well with the more expensive players, but I was far more generous with the smaller deals. Also, I need to learn how to make straight columns. MLBTR was pretty much right on; that was not always the case in past years, but you’ve got to give credit where credit is due. I guess I should work harder next offseason. Yeah, probably not!
