a soriano's future contract

15 mill/year for Zito is crazy. But I'd rather the Mets spend it on him than Soriano. Yes he had the one bad year in 2004, but not counting this year his career average is 3.50 ERA 1.22 WHIP, from a 29 year old left hander. I'll take it for 5 years. That being said he's a right coaster and I don't think he'll sign in New York unless we drastically overpay, possibly to the tuneof 17-18 mill/year

So if the Mets come and say, hey we're signing Kazuo Matsui, this stud japanese FA who we think can come in and give us some great 30/30 years, but we'll give you the same amount of money to play LF more than the Giants will give you to play 2B, he'll be all for it. As long as he's getting the green, I think he's happy.


You'd be wrong about that. Soriano has expressed that he wants to continue to play 2B on whichever team he signs with. I believe he'll have a minimal number of games at 2B put into his contract.

It would be one nasty offensive infield. Sick.

You'd be wrong about that. Soriano has more recently been quoted [in the WashPost] as saying he believed Bowden moving him to the OF was probably a positive thing for him on balance, and that he might well never play second again.

I think Soriano is pretty happy playing LF. I also think that he is happy in WAS. Obviously he won't take an obscene pay cut to play there but I don't think it is out of the question. I've always been against the Mets going after Soriano as far as 2B was concerned but as an OF which the Mets will need next year I'd be OK with that. The Mets have a good enough lineup to afford no-bat Anderson Hernandez at 2B.

Are they planning on putting Milledge in RF?

Not sure. Prior to the Nady trade I would have said LF but now RF might make more sense. It will probably depend on what their options are.

I'd say in all probability Milledge ends up in right. He does have the arm for it
