almuto talks throughout the Winter Meetings Bryce Harper Jersey , but New York ultimately found the asking price to be too high for them."All of that time and creativity spent on “J.T.Realmuto to the Mets” trade scenarios proved to be a waste. Pending a physical, free agent catcher WilsonRamos will sign with New York, as first reported by VDM Radio’s Daniel 脕lvarez Montes. Jeff Passan of Yahoo Spots tweets that it’s a two-year deal. James Wagner of The New York Times has full financial details:Fully recovered from a torn ACL, Ramos raked in 2018. His .306/.358/.487 slash line and 131 wRC+ were extremely comparable to Realmuto’s.However, a couple stints on the disabled list and poorer defensive work dragged down his overall value. FanGraphs pegged Ramos at 2.4 Wins Above Replacement, approximately half of Realmuto’s 4.8 fWAR. Also consider that the thicc Venezuelan is three-and-a-half years older than the Marlins All-Star, and his salaries in 2019 and 2020 will almost certainly be higher. Realmuto is projected to take home $6.1 million next season with another year of arbitration eligibility to come after that.Multiple reports from Las Vegas this past week had the Marlins being fixated on the Mets’ controllable major league position players. Specifically, MichaelConforto Stephen Strasburg Jersey , BrandonNimmoand AmedRosario were potential centerpieces.It looked like an awkward fit from the beginning, though. None of those players have quite as much long-term control as an elite prospect, and the Mets don’t have any of those; their No. 1 minor leaguer, shortstop Andres Gimenez, fails to crack the Top 50 on most national publications.SNY’s Andy Martino confirms that the Marlins “wouldn’t budge” on their request for a return package featuring somebody impactful from New York’s major league roster. Because Ramos was traded from the Rays to the Phillies last summer, he could not be tendered a qualifying offer. His contract costs the Mets money, but nothing else. They can now redirect those young assets to upgrade at other positions, either this offseason or if/when a need arises in 2019.The Braves , Yankees, Reds, Rays and Padres are among the likeliest Realmuto landing spots at this point.’s Joe Frisaro believes the Dodgers “remain in the mix” as well. Frisaro adds that the Fish don’t feel pressured to rush into a deal, so buckle up: this saga could extend into the new year. A look at what’s happening around the majors today:FOR REAL THIS TIMEWade Miley is ready for take two. The Brewers left-hander figures to see more than one batter in Game 6 of the NL Championship Series when he tries to help Milwaukee stave off elimination, down 3-2 to the Dodgers. Miley goes back to the hill two days after being lifted one batter into Game 5 in a designed move by manager Craig Counsell. Miley hasn’t given up a run in 10 1/3 innings this postseason. Los Angeles is going with lefty Hyun-Jin Ryu in a rematch of Game 2 starters. One more Dodgers victory would set up a World Series showdown with the Boston Red Sox.GRANDY’S NEW GRINCurtis Granderson is still smiling, even with a big chunk of his front right tooth buried somewhere in the infield at Dodger Stadium. The Brewers outfielder chipped a tooth during Game 5 when his helmet came off and bumped him in the mouth on a headfirst slide into second base. Los Angeles infielders Justin Turner, Manny Machado and Brian Dozier tried to help Granderson locate the missing piece of his tooth, but they came up empty. Granderson posted a photo on Instagram on Thursday showing off his new grin and promising to be “cheesin’ hard for game 6 tomorrow!”WELCOME BACKBoston got a boost when first baseman Mitch Moreland returned to the lineup Thursday night Anthony Rendon Jersey , a positive sign for the Red Sox as they look ahead to the World Series. Moreland injured his right hamstring in Game 2 of the AL Division Series against the Yankees and didn’t start again until Game 5 of the AL Championship Series in Houston, 11 days later. He immediately came through with two hits off Astros ace Justin Verlander. Moreland, a 2016 Gold Glove Award winner, made pinch-hitting appearances in each of the first four ALCS games.
