UPDATE: According to Enrique Rojas of ESPN.com, the Mets have signed Ronny Paulino to a one-year contract worth $1.3 million. He’ll have a chance to earn more with performance-based incentives.
9:56 AM: Any time you can sign a 3o year-old catcher with a .259/.311/.354 line who was just DFA’d — and who got suspended for 50 games last year for PEDs — you have to do it. That’s what the Mets think anyway, because they’re reported to be on the verge of signing Ronny Paulino, reports Jorge Arangure.
I kid, Mets fans. Paulino is only going to be a backup, and you could probably do worse with backups than Paulino. As long as he’s not making real money this one is more open for empty mocking, not purposed mocking.
