Update: Jets are giving former Broncos WR Eric Decker a 5-year, $36.25M deal, including $15M guaranteed, per source.
The Jets get their #1 target just before the end of day two, as the soon-to-be 27 year old wide-out signs with gang-green. Decker, coming off a monster season, will need to prove that he can produce while being Geno Smith's - Vick or Schaub? - number one target. His $36.25M deal shows he certainly wasn't paid like one as evidence of Mike Wallace's $60M ($30M guranteed) contract over five years signed just last March. The Jets can still sign other top FA receivers or draft one in May. GM John Idzik left himself plenty of options. ANALYST: Steve Perrotta
To bad they do not have a quarterback that can throw him the ball. ANALYST: Michael Pichan
Wandy Rodriguez allowed just one run on five hits and three walks with five strikeouts over five innings against the Angels on Friday.
Sigh. He’s like that bad penny you just can’t get rid of, no matter how hard you try. Just when you think Major League teams have had enough of him and his boring mediocrity, someone goes and brings good ol’ Wandy back from the dead. It’s difficult to imagine that he’ll last long with the Rangers, especially with the number of home runs he normally allows, but consider this the warning to stay away. This start may not look bad on the surface, but it’s just setting you up for something downright horrible in the future. He’ll get another start next week against the Mariners, but we cannot, in good conscience, recommend using him. Analysis: Howard Bender
