New York Mets Unlikely to Land Jonathan Broxton

By Craig Williams

I’ve been on record more than once expressing my desire for the New York Mets to pick up former Los Angeles Dodgers’ closer Jonathan Broxton this offseason.  Unfortunately, that marriage does not appear likely according to Mark Hale of the New York Post.  BB Abbot, Jonathan Broxton’s agent, thinks that his client is close to making a decision, but the New York Mets are not at the top of the list.  We recently heard that there was a lot of competition for Jonathan Broxton with more than ten teams interested.  Until he signs there is still a chance things can change.  Maybe Abbot is trying to squeeze a little bit more out of the New York Mets.  Who knows?  I suppose the best thing for me (and anyone else who was hoping to see him in Queens) to do is move on.  There are still some guys on the market who could make interesting options for the bullpen.  I’ll be a little disappointed if/when Jonathan Bronxton signs with someone else, but I’ll be happy as long as the New York Mets don’t go spending big money on a closer.
