They're just rumours...... calm down. But since you're a Mets fan, I'm sure it brings back bad memories :-D

I would be more upset that they were scared off of Vlad because of injury concerns yet they are rumored to be interested in Maggs. :-o

This will be a long winter if you freak out about every rumor to come out of the NY media. :-D

Reyes for Soriano didn't make sense last year and it still doesn't make sense now because Reyes is cheap. I'll believe that one when I see it.

I wouldn't worry about the Piazza/Green/Sosa trade. It's unrealistic and just an LA and Chicago wet dream that worked it's way into the NY papers.

Ok...Piazza for Green is bad buy Reyes for Soriano? Money aside, that's a great deal for the Mets. Reyes in his wildest dreams wouldn't be able to accomplish what Soriano is capable of IMO. Soriano is a threat for 40 homeruns, 40 stolen bases and a good average. Reyes has already shown he has problems staying on the field.

It's not about comparing Reyes to Soriano. It's about necessity and luxury.

The Mets will probably have a $100M dollar payroll for 2005 which means they have approximately $25M to upgrade their weaknesses.

By trading Reyes for Soriano you bring in more offense at the expense of poorer defense, you take a downgrade at SS and you take on extra payroll. It doesn't make sense.

The Mets weakness isn't at SS. Playing in Shea the Mets need to shore up the defense starting with 1B, then solidify their rotation, upgrade their bullpen and then worry about offense.

Some fans just can't handle the pressure of the NY media. ;-)
