wait.... you might have been right the first time. Which is strange because arbitration settling doesn't usually work like that.
Reports I just looked over say 1 year deal for 1.7 but team control till 2015. Don't know what Mets are doing, if they are going year per year with him, which would be stupid. Or if article got it wrong.
I apologize for correcting you, as you may be right.
"Most cases settle the salary through end of team control. "
No, because he's eligible for arbitration next year. Sometimes Teams lock up a player through the end of arbitration and into the first FA year or two (like the Mets did with Wright and Reyes), but it is by no means universal.
his first attempt as A closer failed ,imo,because he was trying to blow ppl away with his fastball.i agree,mix an offspeed pitch or two ,and he COULD be an outstanding closer.
