Mets sign reliever

The Mets have signed RP Matt Wise to a one-year, $1.2 million deal. If he fails to make the team out of spring training, he will still be paid $750,000.

Wise is a righty who went 3-2 with a 4.19 ERA last year for the Brewers. He had a spectacular first half, posting an ERA under 2.90, but imploded in the second half after hitting a batter in the head and losing confidence in his ability to throw strikes. In both 2005 and 2006, Wise had an ERA under 4. He should definitely provide some depth to the bullpen and will probably be one of Willie's 7th inning guys.

I like this signing a lot because it provides us with another quality arm out of the bullpen and is a low-risk high-reward type signing. I would call it a Wise signing (ha! I made an awful pun).
