Mets Could Non-Tender Estrada

At Rotoworld they write about Johnny Estrada and how the Mets might deal with his contract:

Rather than take him to arbitration, the New York Daily News suggests that the Mets could non-tender Johnny Estrada next month if they're able to acquire another catcher before then.

Similar to the what the Twins did in dealing for Craig Monroe earlier this month, the move for Estrada simply gives the Mets the option of keeping him or letting him go at no monetary cost. The added bonus is that they clear Guillermo Mota's $3.2 million salary off the books in the trade.
