i really like what the Nats front office is doing the past couple years there. they had a phenominal draft, and there trades almost look like steals in my eyes.... even the kearns/lopez one i mean they basicaly sent crap for atleast marginal mlb players.

when is that new stadium going to be up for them? looks like a team on the rise imo.

I was listening to the interview on WFAN and Minaya at least talked me off the ledge. I still can't understand why we didn't trade for our real need in pitching. He basically said no one wanted milledge, and more or less hinted at the fact that perhaps he contributed to last years collapse. He also seemed to think Milledge was not dedicated to baseball, or something like that.

He pointed out that Church was among the league leaders in doubles in a huge stadium and that those numbers would translate for better in shea. Then he went on to say he now thinks that the mets are now a top defensive team up the middle. With Schneider, reyes, and beltran, and castillo be above average.

A lot of it was him blowing smoke, but i'm hoping this leads to something bigger, because this trade hurts.

It must be far worse to be a Twins fan.

It's not going to be as bad as the Kazmir debacle, as Kazmir has more talent in his non throwing pinky than Milledge has in his whole body, but it's not good, either.

It certainly wasn't a popular trade based on what I've seen regardless of his reasoning. I still think Milledge will be at least a star level quality player and chalk this up as a bad trade for Minaya no matter how you look at it.

Yea. I'm not necessarily defending it. I'm just saying it made me think that i don't need to drink whiskey when i get out of work. Just a lot of beer, if you know what i mean. It's just nice to hear any slightly rationale reasoning for that trade, albeit a barely defendable.

Yeah, we're getting close to having 5 future/current all-stars (Mauer, Morneau, Liriano, Young and Hughes) without a bloated budget (although it would be nice to have a bloated budget). I can't complain too much.

as previously said: Oakland would have taken Milledge

Beane loves him, knows he is blowing it up again, and he will take potential "problem players"

I hope you're wrong. :-/ But I sense your right. :-[

I just hope there is a bigger picture here we don't see, and Omar isn't as clueless as he seems.
