Amazingly, this season the Mets are still going to spend ... well, I can't figure it out exactly, but it looks like more than $140 million to me. Including Oliver Perez's $12 million and Luis Castillo's $6 million (minus the minimum salaries paid by their new teams). I'm sure those budget-conscious executives have done well, but you can do only so well for $10.87 million.
