amazing what a change of scenery can do to a guy... :-)
[size=10]Manny Ramirez....$20 million
Pedro Martinez....$17.5 million
Curt Schilling...$12 million (and a $2 million bonus)
Never hearing a Yankee fan chant 1918 again...priceless. [/size]

Baylor rocks. He has been an unsung hero for the Mets this year. ;-D

No doubt we lose him and he gets another coaching stint next year. :,-(

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

Hidalgo just went deep again. I believe that's the 5th game in a row and a Mets record.

I dissed him when the Mets traded for him. Boy was I wrong! As a Mets fan I am SO glad I was!
