This could get ugly in a hurry. Patrick Newman of NPB Tracker (courtesy of MLBTR) says according to a Japanese article,Â the Red Sox are in lead for Igarashi’s services. They’ve offered him a 2 year, $2-3MM contract.
Not that anyone was drooling over Igarashi…but this could be just downright embarrassing for the Mets. I only have one thing to say and it’s in Japanese. KUSO!!!!
Update:Â MLBTR has updated with the following at 8:42: Bart Hubbuch of the New York Post spoke with a Mets official who is still confident the Mets will sign Igarashi. Hubbuch adds that the two sides are “still in talks” and that “nothing is imminent.”
