There’s a new game in town: Baseball is buzzing over the financial prowess of … the Mets.
With billionaire owner Steve Cohen signing the checks, the Mets have committed more than $800 million to free agents this offseason, a spending spree that has sent their total payroll costs zooming toward $500 million. The final coup was agreeing to a 12-year, $315 million deal with superstar shortstop Carlos Correa to play third base. It followed a record-setting pact with Justin Verlander and major outlays for Brandon Nimmo, Edwin Diaz and newcomer Kodai Senga.
