yeah, i agree. he's just too good for people to forget him and let him slip past the 4th round, even though he had an awful first half. i think that regardless to where he plays he will put good numbers, if not inujred. i think that sexson might be a better option since he didn't play much this year and might be available after delgado is taken.

Injured players during the previous season have been a key for me in the past. Sexson and Maggs are 2 guys to consider. B-)

Maggs will definately go cheaper than he would have if he was healthy this year.... but he's over-rated IMO. People had him near the first round last year! This is a 300-30-100-100 guy. He's not the 40 HR 25 SB guy he was before. He's Aubrey Huff, without 1B/3B eligibility. He's Jose Guillen, but with a team that doesn't hate him. He's extremely over-rated. He'll go later than he did last year.... but I still won't be taking him in any drafts.

When healthy, he's better than Huff but I get your point. Maybe his value is still based on when he used to steal. Power numbers and injuries have curtailed that but he is still a nice player. I got him in the 4th round last year in my H2H league. :-)

While I hate Delgado's arrogance about his political views, he really helped me in the second half this season. He's amazingly consistant with the numbers, and depending on where he winds up, he could really do some damage. I think you can automatically could him in for 30 jacks and 100 RBIs though, even if he goes to LA. If he goes somewhere more condusive to hitting, expect 40 and 120.

This is the guy that I assumed the Mets would lock in on. Of all the free agents this year he fills the biggest hole the Mets have.

I'll guess he ends up in Seattle and hits .260 35 HR and 100+ RBI.

I don't really see him as a sleeper, but a guy that will go too early given his hot 2nd half.

You're right about Delgado filling the Mets needs. Yet, I've been reading that some Met fans want JT SNOW!!! Come on, he's totally a product of Bonds this year. He never hit like this before. You gotta go for consistancy. Delgado would be good for 35 at Shea and about 110-130 RBIs depending on whether Reyes and Matsui stayed healthy to set the table.

Mets could be underrated offensively next year if they just tie up some loose ends. Piazza and Floyd should be traded and Delgado should be signed. You get rid of 2 guys that are injury prone and at the tail end of their careers and get yourself a guy that's consistant and will be dependable.

A good 2005 lineup for Mets:
SS- Reyes
2B- Matsui
3B- Wright
1B- Delgado
CF- Cameron

C-???, Maybe Pierzynski, Maybe Still Piazza, Maybe Even Kendall
RF- Maybe Ordonez, Maybe Diaz
LF- Maybe Floyd, Maybe Diaz

Irregardless, with a few proper moves, the team can be a threat next year

I think the most likely scenario at C for the Mets is a Piazza/Wilson platoon. They're trying but unless the Yankees want another DH I don't see them moving Piazza. He can't play a full season at C and he really can't play at 1B.

I'm not sure what Mets' fans want Snow but I'm certainly not one of them. I'd rather just give Brazell an opportunity with Phillips as a safety net if someone like Delgado can't be landed.

If the Mets were worried about the injury risks with Guerrero, I can't see them going after 2 more (Delgado and Maggs). Although, they have shocked us in the past. :-o
