Joel Piniero wants more money than Randy Wolf

Dec 9, 2009, 2:59 PM EDT

Randy Wolf just signed for $29.75 million over three years.  Jayson Stark is reporting that Joel Piniero thinks the he’s the No. 2 starter on market behind Lackey.  That means that he wants more than Wolf, which sets him up at about $10 million bucks a year. You have to figure he wants three years too.

The Mets have shown some interest in recent weeks, but they reportedly wouldn’t match that third year that Wolf got from Milwaukee.  If they wouldn’t give it to Wolf, it’s hard to see them giving it to Piniero unless they’re feeling really desperate.

    These are the Mets. Of COURSE they’re desperate. I can see 3 years, $36 million for Piniero from the Mets. Remember, this is the same GM who gave the identical deal to Oliver Perez last winter, overpaid by at least $1 million to keep Alex Cora, and blew $1.5 million on a back up catcher who’s no better than Omir Santos. So, yeah, I’d say this team is despearte.
