Who wins the Mesa derby? I think the fish could offer more than just Marte if the Bucs are serious about including Lawton.
That would be hot! Lawton and Mesa for Marte + TBA? I'm sold!
I really don't understand why you guys are so down on Mesa. Is he the best thing since sliced bread? No. But he's a 39 year old guy who maybe has (at best) 2 or 3 more years in him. He likes what he's doing, where he's doing it, and he's made more than enough money in his career to keep he and his family happy for the rest of his life.
So what's so wrong with saying there are things more important to him than staying in baseball? The guy has pride- in himself, in his team- and I can respect that. Were Mesa to go back to the Dominican now with the money he has, he could live like a king for the rest of his life.
You all have to remember that these guys are human, and money is not the only motivator for a whole lot of people (especially those who have plenty of it).
