Mets likely to keep Angel Pagan and his salary........


The Mets signaled for the first part of the offseason that Angel Pagan likely was out, and that the organization was looking to go in a different direction in center field.

More recently, they have signaled that Pagan will not be non-tendered at the Dec. 12 deadline, meaning he would remain and get a raise from the $3.5 million he made in 2011.

One logical reason for the turnaround was evident Wednesday. David DeJesus, a credible alternative, signed a deal with the Cubs that guaranteed him $10 million over two years. That makes Pagan far more credible for an organization watching its bottom line.
