As for the 2010 season, Escobar insists he hasn't given up on it yet, but he will only make his final decision after picking up a ball again. "In the coming weeks, I'll simply work to strengthen my shoulder, and then it will be April 1 when I return to throwing," he says. "If I feel the same pain that day, I'll have to make the decision I have been considering since I was with the Angels: to rest for a full year and recover."


Um......

It's funny that a Giants fan and a Padres fan are talking smack about the Mets...

Sabean has been so brilliant...

No argument that Sabean is a goon. That said, he has put together a relatively solid farm system (and yet to gut it... as of this second anyways). I'd also point out that no Giants executive has removed his shirt and threatened to fight players, to my knowledge anyways.

if we only had their coin ...

This is the NL West after all, and SD has had some of the best minds in the game come through here recently. If we had "Mets Cash" the Friars would of rattled off about four or five West titles in a row by now. :-]

Ahahahahaha :-b

http://www.mlbtraderumors.com/2010/03/mets-shopping-gary-matthews-jr.html

The Mets are shopping outfielder Gary Matthews Jr., reports Joel Sherman of the New York Post. Sherman suggests the Mets might not have much of a role for Matthews, and the Reds are a trade possibility.

Matthews has two years remaining on his contract, and when the Mets acquired him from the Angels in January the Halos agreed to include $21.5MM. Even on a two-year, $2MM commitment, the Mets will likely find that Matthews has little trade value. Who wants a 35-year-old malcontent who doesn't hit or play strong defense?

Again, what's the big deal? It was a minimal financial commitment and we didn't know much at the time about Beltran's recovery or whether Pagan and/or FMart could fill the gap.

Not every team can just throw $2mil down the toilet. Other teams have this thing called accountability ;-7

What if Ben Sheets gets hurt (again) in April? Would that be throwing $10 mil down the toilet?
