Thanks for remembering! It looks like this poll is going to make it after all!

We now know that the final count will be somewhere between 572 and 734.

the poll is - arguably - already over and the result known as the original post indicated he need to play the games under the contract he signed with the Marlins - he has since been released and signed as a free agent - not claimed off waivers which would continue the contract.

during the course of his new six-year contract, from 2012 through 2017?
Well, I've got nothing against the bunt, in its place. But most of the time that place is the bottom of a long-forgotten closet. -Earl Weaver

The only difference between being released-then-resigned vs claimed-on-waivers is who winds up paying what percentage of that contract. The deal is still the deal and he's still getting paid based on it.
IOW, it's the time frame here which is the important part rather than the accounting particulars.
Would that i'twere so simple

If he plays 101 games for the Mets this season, he will have played more games for the Mets than he did for the Marlins.
