Twitter Reacts to Max Scherzer, Mets Agree to $130 Million Deal
The Mets and owner Steve Cohen had their people. Max Scherzer and New York Mets are said to have agreed on a tentative three-year, $130 million deal range, although the exact number is subject to change.
It was announced that there was an opt-out clause after the second season.
The average annual value of the reported deal will be around $43 million a year. The current record for AAV is held by New York Yankees Vase Gerrit Cole at $36 million.
This is a huge contract for the 37-year-old star.
Scherzer played for Arizona Diamondbacks, Detroit Tigers, Citizens of Washington and most recently Los Angeles Dodgers. He’s an eight-time All-Star, a World Series champion, a three-time Cy Young Award winner, and an All-MLB First Team twice, including in 2021.
So that’s a big deal for the Mets, to say the least. Twitter reacted to the news and as always, people had a lot to say. Here are some of the best tweets:
