1B Gonzalez reportedly agrees to deal with Mets


The Mets and Adrian Gonzalez have agreed to a one-year deal, under which NY will pay just $545,000 of the first baseman's $22.36 million salary next season, according to multiple reports.

The Mets won't need to break the bank for Gonzalez.

While the club already has an established first baseman in 22-year-old Dominic Smith, there's no question that they could use the veteran leadership and career.288 bat Gonzalez brings to the table.

Plane skids off runway and dangles over a cliff
The airport, situated in the Turkish province of the same name, was closed for several hours afterwards but has since reopened. Early reports suggest that the wheels dug into the frozen mud, which stopped it from falling completely into the Black Sea.

A five-time All-Star best known for his time with the San Diego Padres and Los Angeles Dodgers, the 35-year-old played in just 71 games for the Dodgers last season and missed their postseason run due to back problems. He missed almost three months with a herniated disc in his lower back and even toyed around with the idea of an early retirement, though his deal with the Mets suggests that he's good to go for another season, if not more than that. He didn't see action in the playoffs, and National League Rookie of the Year Cody Bellinger spent much of the year playing first base while belting 39 homers.

Los Angeles traded Gonzalez to the Braves on December 16 in a deal that brought back outfielder Matt Kemp for his second stint with the club.

Los Angeles traded Gonzalez to the Atlanta Braves last month as part of the Matt Kemp deal.

Antonio Conte and Chelsea make unwanted history following Leicester City stalemate
Asked if he would extend his contract with Chelsea , Conte added: "In this case, I think the club has to decide to send me away". Leicester went down to 10 men when defender Ben Chilwell was booked twice in five minutes midway through the second half.

He is a five-time All-Star and a four-time Gold Glove victor.

Sandy Alderson made it clear that the Mets were not overly impressed with Smith, who arrived in the major leagues out of shape last August, and that he was not guaranteed the starting first base job this spring.
