FANTASY BASEBALL BREAKING NEWS: METS WILLING TO GO FIVE YEARS NOW ON YOENIS CESPEDES, CHAPMAN AND YANKS DESTINED FOR REUNION

By Michael Wong

All along the consensus line of thinking has been that the New York Mets and free agent outfielder Yoenis Cespedes will eventually find common ground and reunite under a new deal.  Initially the Mets reportedly wanted to keep things to a four-year deal worth around $25 million per but they apparently are now willing to go to a fifth year given the fact Cespedes is the biggest hitting fish on the market and that the price dictates such a move.  Cespedes has told anyone who would listen that he wants to return to the Mets and no team has jumped heavily to the forefront yet as challengers.  Also a potential big fish in the New York Yankees reportedly don't have Cespedes in their plans.  Thus is seems like an official reunion is only a matter of time form happening unless another team comes with some major bucks at the winter meetings to muddle things. 

-Speaking of the Yankees, GM Brian Cashman told NY-area reporters that he has heard all the talk about closer Aroldis Chapman wanting to return to the team but that he said it will come down to dollars like it always does.  On that front, Chapman is expected to be the first closer to net a $100-million contract but he too told Yankees confidant Ray Negron that he wants to come back to the team given how well he was treated during his short stint there last season.  Another indication this is likely going to become official is that the Los Angeles Dodgers have increased their talks with Kenley Jansen and Mark Melancon which indicates possible they think they are out.
