It's a five year deal coming to 37M a year. I'm surprised the Mets
didn't go higher. The assumption must be he's still hurt.

FWIW, according to this article, he didn't wait around for a final offer from the Mets:

And he's going to a team that won 68 games last year, so who knows what the motivation was for him.
Time to move on...

Resigning Nimo was more important

5 years, maybe 6 with 70 or so starts? No thanks. Good for him collecting his money but Texas is going nowhere.

Honestly, I think DeGrom has been playing them the last 2 years

There have been whispers from some in the medical field that his problem
lies between his ears, not his arm.

There are romours that he saw what happened with Matt Harvey and too
that in to mean that he should just protest injury when he doesn't like
his contract and stop playing.

Why wouldn't he? He left an owner committed to win to a probably 77-win 4th place team ...but hey, no state income tax, right? Outside of a 30 mile radius, nobody gives 2 shits about the Texas Rangers...Jake apparently doesn't care about winning...more power to him.
