Mets agree to two-year deal with Todd Frazier

Todd Frazier has agreed to a two-year deal with the Mets.

That's a bargain right there. Most of Frazier's projections ahead of the offseason were calling for a three-year deal in the neighborhood of $35 million. But at that price, the Mets might even be able to still go get a starter, like Alex Cobb or Lance Lynn. Holy shit, I am pumped.

Look, it's pretty obvious I was a big proponent of this signing. I've been championing it for months on social media, and all of last week on the blog. And now that the Mets have a bonafide third baseman, one that can hit for power, one that balances their lineup, and one that, ya know...can actually play third base, this is a lineup that could legitimately compete with the Nationals.

Plus, think of the depth. With Frazier installed at third, Reyes is now the utility infielder the Mets promised he would be. Wilmer Flores can be used at any position against lefties.

And once Michael Conforto returns from injury, it's a stacked 2-through-5. It also provides the Mets a ton of breathing room in the first month that Conforto will presumably be out to decipher 1) The first base situation, and if Adrian Gonzales has anything left, and/or if Dom Smith is the long-term solution, and 2) If Juan Lagares' swing adjustments will turn him into an every day center fielder, or if Brandon Nimmo's OBP prowess will turn him into a full-time lead off man.

If you can't get past his batting average, well...I don't really know what to tell you. You're missing out of appreciating a very good player, one that was more valuable than all but two Mets in 2017: Conforto and Jacob deGrom.

The Mets will win more games because of this move, and I can't wait to see Frazier launch his first home run into the left field seats. Welcome to Queens, Todd!
