Well I'm gonna have to take a break and do some thinking here.
Silent Rob and ayebatter are making things difficult for me here - but then if they didn't this wouldn't be fun.
Hey Silent Rob how do you feel about Bay in NY? Lot of comments at FanGraphs about the Mets overpaying. You're a BoSox fan aren't you? Any regrets on him leaving? Also some cost analysis again at FanGraphs on Beltre as a Red Sox. Interesting depending if the Sox offload Lowell e.g. to Texas, shift Youkilis to third and stick with Kotchman at first etc. etc.
