Well, so much for that. Just when I was getting ready to welcome in Yorvit Torreabla, apparently discussions broke off suddenly. After reports that they reached an agreement on a deal, something happened that prevented it from being finalized.
So, it looks like it's back to the drawing board for Omar. And that's probably not a good thing. I honestly wasn't too excited about Torrealba, but there's not a whole lot to get excited about with the available catchers.
This could mean they try to fall back on Lo Duca, but it's been becoming more and more obvious that the Mets don't want anything to do with him. So, this likely means the Mets will now look to sign someone with lesser value than Torrealba, or have to acquire someone via trade.
