Mets resign Chavez and Castro

Marty Noble at Mets.com, writes about the Mets and that they avoided arbitration with the signngs of Endy Chavez and Ramon Castro:

Arbitration-eligible for the second time, Chavez's 2007 salary constitutes an increase of $1.025 million; he can earn an additoinal $100,000 in incentives. Castro's increase was a more modest $50,000, and he can earn as much as $212,500 in incentives.

Chavez, who turns 29 next month, became an integral part of the Mets' scheme last year, his first with the club. He began the season as the team's fourth outfielder, but because of injuries to Cliff Floyd and his own fine play, he started 79 games and appeared in 41 others.
