2011 Mets Player Salaries and Contracts

Outstanding work as usual,  just to add to your data R.A. Dickey has signed a 2 yr. 8 M contract leaving Angel Pagan as the last arbitration eligible left.  Pagan and the Mets are about 1.2 M apart, hopefully they will be able to avoid a hearing which can be brutally demeaning and destructive.  The only question about Pagan is whether he can perform at the same level again, there is little question about his value last year with his defense, speed, and hitting. 
Coming off two years with fewer than 80 wins and with the improvements to the rest of the NL East it is not surprising that the Mets are not expected to show much improvement, if any at all.  I believe that the surprise will be registered by the teams that will be facing the Mets throughout the season.  On the record; 85 -88 wins and a wild card.

BTW Tartans,  can you get the other 29 teams done by pitchers and catchers.
