Mets Winter Meetings Day Three Recap

With fans talking one another off the proverbial ledge, the Mets finally struck oil on the third day of the winter meetings.  Here were the biggest stories of the day:

- The Mets signed 40 year old Bartolo Colon to a 2 year/$20 million dollar deal (HERE).  Coming off of an 18-6 year with the Athletics in which he posted a 2.65 ERA, he will serve as the innings eater the Mets set out to find this winter.

- The market for Ike Davis was given a midday boost when the Marlins signed Corey Hart (HERE), and then almost immediately traded for Logan Morrison.  As a result, the Brewers, Rays and Pirates remain in the market for a first baseman (HERE).

- The Mets met with Scott Boras, the agent for Stephen Drew (HERE), who is reportedly seeking a two year deal worth between $25 and $30 million dollars (HERE).

- Daniel Murphy is now unlikely to be traded (HERE).
