yes but he has an agent who loves that New York Money. :-) Nobody else is offering that kinda of cash ... I'd say its a perfect fit for the Mets. It fits the Mets style, old, declining and overpaid.

I still think Greg will end up on the West coast though. Maybe a little partnership with RJ. :-) One night Greg lulls ya to sleep, The next night RJ smokes it buy ya, and the third night Webb has you whiffing at balls bouncing. :-)

I find it unlikely that Maddux ends up on the Mets. Then again, who predicted Vlad would land on the Angels? 8-o

Answer me this: since Jim Duquette took over, how many old declining players has he signed? Look it up. You guys might learn something about a team you pretend to know about.

Then answer the question. You guys profess to know their MO. And you were right -in the Steve Phillips era.

Bt this place continues to paint the Mets with that old brush. So tell me: What old past his prime vet has Duquette signed?

Who?

I'm waiting.

It depends. Was he on board when they signed Glavine?

The reason the Mets are a joke around here is because their objective for many years now has been to assemble as much talent as possible -- usually older -- then it has been to assemble a team. I don't even think you, Moose, can disagree that it has been a disaster for the most part.

Now, we here the talk that they believe they're one old superstar away from contention makes most of us snicker because that has been their thinking before the GM change. In most of our minds, if they sign Maddux it means nothing has changed in the organization. Meet the new boss, same as the old boss.

You can continue to last out at the Met jokes if you want, but in my opinion they are well deserved, especially since teams with half their payroll find ways to compete.
