Summarizing just part of a wild night, the Mets traded with San Francisco, signed a Francisco and won't be reunited with Francisco (Rodriguez). The Mets' big splash, a two-year deal worth $12 million with closer Frank Francisco, completed a frenzy that won't overshadow Jose Reyes' departure to the Marlins for $106 million, but at least shows the Mets have a plan. Also coming to the Mets is free-agent reliever Jon Rauch, who signed a one-year deal worth $3.5 million. Gone is Pagan, whom the Mets dealt to San Francisco for reliever Ramon Ramirez and outfielder Andres Torres.
