Type A free agents - Tuesday is the deadline

As we come out of our Turkey coma and get ready for a football Sunday we take a minute to remind everyone that Tuesday is the deadline for offering arbitration. If a team offers arbitration to a Type A free agent and is declined and is signed by another team that team will be giving a pick in next years draft in the first round . The Mets will only lose a player in the second round due to there placement in the standings in 2009.

Here are some names that are Type A- The ones italicized are players the Mets might have interest in. The Mets had no Type A players and only 2 type B Tatis and Delgado. Both will not be offered arbitration.

Matt Holliday, OF, St. Louis
Orlando Hudson, IF, Dodgers
Jason Bay, OF, Boston
Orlando Cabrera, IF, Minnesota
Johnny Damon, OF, Yankees
Octavio Dotel, RP, White Sox
