Mets re-sign Turk Wendell for 3 years,
The Mets have their bullpen back. While John
Franco may be too old for a three-year deal, Wendell is not.
It appears that with how the Mets' starting pitching will end up,
the bullpen will need to throw a lot of innings next year, so
bringing back Wendell was a move they needed to make. They paid him
fair market value and this is a deal that should work out well for
both sides. Wendell is an effective reliever and a good, fun guy to
have in the clubhouse.
