From the bottom of my heart, I mean it when I say it is a sad day when a New York team is binded financially. Good golly, I thought it was in the Constitution that NY teams can sign any damn player they pleased? So what if they made one of the worst trades in the history of sports when they got Vaughn? Why should they have to suffer for it? What is this country coming to?

Actually, Appier didn't do well on the angels (actually, i don't think he pitched at all, but i can't remember off the top of my head) so it's not as bad as you think. The angels side sucked, and the mets side makes me want to ... kill steve "..." phillips!

hey, when was the last time you heard "kill" and "steve" without the word "bartman" in the sentence? :D

I wouldn't call the Angels side as a "suck". They won a championship which they propably wouldn't have won with Mo poisoning the clubhouse and they unloaded his contract. Sounds like a winner to me. The Mets traded for his contract so I find it hard to sympathize for their plight.

Who said, "If you swim with the fishes you're bound to get wet?" I think it might have been Mr. Limpet.

Erboes, i was simply talking about the players involved, not the rings. Appier did jack diddly for the Angels, and Mo Vaughn did jack diddly squat.

Slow down guys. All this is a "good faith" gesture on Mo's part so the insurance claim is legit. He'll show up, decide he cant play, and the Mets will be off the hook for 11.75 mil of the 15 million.


They've removed the man's locker from Shea.

Crash,

This reply is fine. The one you posted last night was inappropriate and I removed it.

That may be so but if there is any chance that he can play next year, the Mets might lay low and watch as the free agents go to other teams.

That's right. The Mets will have to lay low just in case big Mo doesn't retire. They can't afford to be big players in the free agent market if they have to pay Mo's contract.
