The New York Mets are making a hard push at the MLB's top free agents this offseason, already landing deals with Starling Marte and Eduardo Escobar. Starting pitching is the next biggest target for owner Steve Cohen and his front office, and the Mets have been making a fast-and-furious push for Max Scherzer.
MLB insider Joel Sherman recently revealed the Mets recent free-agent offer for Scherzer, and it's enticing.

According to Sherman, the Mets have offered Scherzer a contract of $129 million for around three years, or about $43 million on average per season. That number would blow other top starting pitchers out of the water: Gerrit Cole earns around $36 million per year and no one else tops $35 million per year.
Scherzer is arguably the most sought-after starting pitcher on the free agent market and Cohen is doing his best to land the prized possession around MLB circles.
