Tom Seaver, w,ho looked like a cinch to win |30 games the early part of last year, makes no . secret of the fact •• he's shooting to become the highest paid pitcher in all baseball. - "Obviously, I-would like that distincUon," he [said at Tuesday's signing session. "You're not going to do it in four years, but I feel I have a chance to reach it some day.?' Like everybody else, Tom Seaver likes to get- what he feels he's worth. That doesn't necessarily make him money hungry. * '' "Monetary compensation goes hand-in-hand with what you do on the field," he said. "I have always felt I wanted to be as good a pitcher as. humanly possible." That means the best. It also means the best paid. .. Seaver came to terms with Bob Scheffirig, the Mets general manager, shorUy after left hander Jerry Koosman also did. A number of inquiries for . Koosman's services were made by other clubs during the major league meetings in Los Angeles two months ago, but nobody bothered asking the Mets about Seaver. Scheffing Would Deal "Does that mean you wouldn't even have listened to • any offer for him?" Scheffing was asked. "Not at all," said the Mets' . general manager. "You. mean you'd deal Seaver?" "Yup." . "Like say for whom?" "Johnny Bench," Scheffing laughed. . Tom Seaver is a realist.. He , probably would make the same deal as. Scheffing, if he were . the Met's general manager. . "It's an honor' to be menUoned with Johnny Bench," Seaver said. Johnny. Bench hasn't even talked contract with CincinnaU yet. He will pretty soon but he's not letting himself get carried away by all those free-spenders • who •'already have designated him baseball's first $200,000 player.
