I think teams are in fact afraid of Mussina, Wang and Johnson as a 1-2-3 punch when you know Rivera's there in the ninth. They're also afraid of that obscene "Pig Yank$" lineup when everyone's healthy. But if it makes you feel better, I'll help you out.

They cheated again. It's not fair, I'm telling.

Seriously, is Littlefield really that dumb? I mean, I'm going to be VERY irrate if the Braves could have flipped a replacement-level OF for a quality guy like Linebrink (and some change even!) and failed to do so.


and I am going to be pissed off if KT could of gotten Betemit for Linebrink, and ended up with a SP that couldn't even make the Pirates. Not to mention trading one of the premier setup men in the league to a team that they could end up facing in just two short months. We traded a guy that knows the entire Padre "Book" on the Mets, and now visa versa ..

If Kevin Towers sent Linebrink to NYM for Ollie, and I understand 'buying low' and 'selling high' here, Ollie damn well better win a Cy Young within the next 3 years.

Oh and where is the 3B?

Todd Walker? Why did we get rid of Castilla? At least he could play Defense. Todd Walker hasn't played 3B in a decade and now we are relying on him during the stretch run ....

ugghh.

Deadline trading was fairly boring...the Lee, Huff and Abreau deals were done before today's deadline.


Well every trade was done before today's deadline... :-?

Apparently there's a lot of talk involving Oswalt coming to the Mets.

If he actually started getting some Wins, that'd be freaking awesome. :-L :-L :-L

The rumor I read was that it was Milledge to Baltimore, Tejada to Houston and Oswalt to the Mets. As much as I love Milledge that would have been awesome. Although I can understand Baltimore nixing that, as is rumored, since it doesn't seem like enough for Tejada.

At this point, even if Linebrink is healthy and the rumor is false, it seems slim that he gets traded to the Mets. Mets are at the bottom of the waiver list and I'm sure some other team would make a claim.

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
