The Mets and Francisco Lindor have agreed to a long-term extension

Jim Rassol-USA TODAY Sports The team came to their senses and paid the man to the tune of After weeks of negotiation, ‘final offers,’ and lots of agita for the fanbase, the Mets and Francisco Lindor agreed to a ten-year, $341 million extension. The news was first reported by Jon Heyman. Lindor, who had set an Opening Day deadline for any contract negotiations, came over to the Mets along with Carlos Carrasco from Cleveland in January.

With that, it seems pretty clear that the Mets have decided upon their rotation for the start of the 2021 season. With Carlos Carrasco and Noah Syndergaard both set to begin the year on the injured list, Yamamoto was a contender for one of two rotation spots behind Jacob deGrom,...

Marcus Stroman is the anchor of the rotation behind deGrom in 2021

Photo by Alejandra Villa Loarca/Newsday RM via With both Carlos Carrasco and Noah Syndergaard missing time this season, Stroman becomes even more vital to the Mets’ success. In 2020, the starting rotation was one of the Mets’ biggest weaknesses. Jacob deGrom was Jacob deGrom as always and David Peterson had a promising rookie season, but Noah Syndergaard was hurt, free agent signings Michael Wacha and Rick Porcello underperformed, and Marcus Stroman opted out of the season. When the offseason began, the rotation behind deGrom was a series of question marks. But...
