    “Max Scherzer is in agreement with the New York Mets on a three-year, $130 million deal. CBS Sports HQ's Jim Bowden confirmed the two sides were putting the finishing touches on the contract Monday afternoon. The deal will give the right-handed starter the largest average annual value of any MLB player at $43.3 million. The Dodgers (who traded for Scherzer at July's deadline), Giants and Angels were also rumored to be fighting for Scherzer's services, but it appears they were all outbid by the Mets.”

    Sounds rock solid. Scherzer was a class act in Detroit paired with Justin Verlander in the starting rotation. Unlike the often loud and self-absorbed Verlander, Scherzer was low-key, easy going and (IMHO) harder working.
