Mike Cameron Traded To...

I'm not really confident that Delgado is a sure thing. It has just been a lot of media speculation so far. One thing I can say about Omar is that he runs a much tighter ship than either Phillips or Duquette did. If Delgado is really traded than it seems likely that either Nady and/or Jacobs gets traded in return. But without knowing the other moves the Mets will eventually make this off-season, Nady makes a lot of sense for the Mets right now. He provides depth for the two positions where the Mets will be taking the biggest risk (Diaz and Jacobs).

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

I am not so confident on Carlos being traded either.
He strikes me as a man of principle, and every thing I read says he is pissed off that his name is even being mentioned. Didn’t the owner of the Marlins (who ever it is this year) go to Carlos during the season and promise him he was not being traded? I thought I read that in a few places.

Anyway. Enjoy Nady. He is a good kid that just can't hit a breaking pitch. ;-D

hmm ... Let me guess, its 7 pages of east coast homers speculating what the Mets are going to do next


and of course the usual snide remarks by a jealous padres fan.


Jealous that my team doesn't have 200 million to throw around on players .... Yeah probably.

I'm all for a salary cap. ;-D


Well, perhaps if more fans went to games in San Diego, or perhaps if California didn't have 15 teams, it would be different. :-D

How many California teams are in the top Seven?
How many New York Teams? ;-7

Well, you got me there veres. What can I say, west coast baseball just doesn't have the same appeal.

Plus, New Yorkers are still bitter about you guys stealing our Dodgers and Giants. :-b

Cameron passed the physical. The deal is official now.

The Pads got a short term solution at CF, the Mets free up some cash room for FAs and got a once-highly-thought prospect in Nady who can play RF-1B(Victor Diaz and Mike Jacobs aren't sure things) who I have faith in.

seems like a good deal for both teams. :-D

And mets fans, if you still think you lost the deal. The fact is that nobody knows what kind of Cameron is gonna show up next season after the collision with Beltran.

Have some faith in my man Omar Minaya, if he can make the Expos contend in the East, he'll definitely do better with a bigger budget in NY. ;-D

Mike Jacobs. Brandon plays for the NY Football Giants. ;-)
