• In 1990, Joe Hesketh lost to Montreal and had his salary reduced from $417,000 to $375,000.
The Mets should be able to gamble $3 M that Davis has a bounce-back season, but without knowing what their finances actually are, it's difficult to say for sure.
Davis makes sense as a buy-low trade candidate for a team desperate for power that could afford to be patient. Some sort of challenge trade for maybe a disappointing outfielder. Who matches up well?
Can you imagine a team nowadays taking a young ace like Doc or Orel to arbitration for a pay cut? Sheesh.
I think they'd do better to hand 1B to Duda and spend that $3M on something else they need, like a decent-ish corner OF or a non-injured SP.
Maybe Pittsburgh? They don't seem to need all of Snider, Tabata and Lambo.
Brian Anderson is probably still around somewhere.
I think some day Snider will carve out a decent couple of seasons, thought snagging him on the cheap last year was a good move, but he has continued to be a disappointment. Would not mind seeing him flail away cluelessly for the Mets next year, depending on the cost.
In 1988, Dwight Gooden with the Mets had his pay cut from $1.5 million to $1.4 million. Doc had requested $1.65 million.
Ike Davis for Dayan Viciedo!
This was actually my first thought, but I don't know what CHW's 1B situation is between Konerko and Dunn.
