PHILADELPHIA – So many expected JT Realmuto to get a record-breaking contract this offseason from the Mets.
New York signed James McCann instead.
Phillies eventually signed Realmuto on a $ 115.5 million five-year contract, making him the highest paid catch in baseball history. It could make a funny story over the next few seasons as the Phillies and Mets compete in the National League East. Imagine, for example, if Realmuto beat the meters up like Chase Utley did.

Phillie’s right-hander Aaron Nola fought through four innings, even though he only allowed one run. In 92 places, he gave up six hits and went two.
