The Mets are the talk of the Hot Stove season after they reached a record-setting, three-year, $130 million contract agreement with free-agent ace Max Scherzer. It’s a risky deal for an older pitcher, but owner Steve Cohen certainly can afford it.

Davis. Meanwhile, across town, the Yankees’ activity has consisted of a small deal for a lefty reliever and some DFAs.
What do you think of the free-agency moves?
