Breaking News: Mets and Lindor Agree to an Extension… Yanks Miss Out
Breaking this night from Anthony DiComo, the New York Mets and Francisco Lindor have agreed on a 10-Year, $341 Million deal which will start in 2022. After trading for him earlier this offseason, the Mets now have their star shortstop until 2031. It was fun while it lasted still hoping for him to come to the Bronx.

Lindor’s deal, unlike the Mets’ previous $325 million offer, does include deferrals that reduce its real-world value. It begins in 2022, meaning Lindor’s previous contract still exists. Thus, the total value is $363.3 million over 11 seasons, bringing Lindor up to his 38th bday. — Anthony DiComo (@AnthonyDiComo) April 1, 2021
