because I don't consider it much of a gamble. I'm confident in Vaz coming back strong.

Haha, yeah. I sure am glad the Yanks are going for the right guys. Just like the Mets do every year....I sure wish we could learn a thing or two from them...

Why? What in the gopher balls all year...the mound presense which was exuding no confidence and an "I am going to get shelled" look, the meltdown in the 2nd half, the post-season awfulness, etc. makes you think this guy is anything but at best a 50-50 gamble at this point? He is not in Montreal pitching for 3000 somewhat interested fans anymore.

Hes got talent, that can't be aquired, confidence can. I remmember when my freinds and I nicknamed him the "strikeout-machine" cause he was K-ing everyone back in Montreal when he had his confidence. Vaz is one of my favs and I think he's just a little too young and confused to be under the NY pressure, I would keep him and let him work with the coaches/psychologists. Talent doesn't just fade away...ever.

Sean Tracey has my apologies, we all know Ozzie Guillen is an idiot. I'm rooting for you!

Really. Selective memory is a wonderful thing. Rey Ordonez for how much? Tom Glavine...Cliff Floyd...Robbie Alomar...Kaz Matsui...Stanton...all fine investments indeed.

Gene Michael was a great GM and Watson was not bad he was just the fall guy for '97. But these guys built the foundation without interference by Steinbrenner.

Vincent banned Steinbrenner from baseball in 1990 because of the whole Spira incident and even though he was reinstated in 1993 he wasn't involved in baseball operations until 1995.

From '90-'95 w/o Steinbrenner's involvement Michaels built that team that went on the run from '96-'00.

Cashman may be a great GM but we'll probably never know until he gets canned and goes to another team. King George is almost certainly calling the shots again. Welcome to the '80s.

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

Dont forget
How were the Mets supposed to know that those players were gonna do bad?
i mean did anyone suspect that Alomar was going to flop?
and since when was Stanton bad
if the mets pay a lot for players, thye make sure they were at least good before hand
i mean leiter and milton? we already know that milton basically sucks and leiter has passed his prime

Hey Blankman, we may be worlds apart when it comes to our favorite baseball teams, but we are on EXACLY the SAME PAGE when it comes to Elisha Cuthbert.

She's as hot as it gets.


Not sure if you've ever seen this photo of her:

What would you do with $189 million? I know what I'd do...

a.) assemble the greatest baseball team ever assembled
b.) bail out a third world country

Brian Cashman doesn't have clue one how to generall manage.
Does your league need a quality, outside review of your league rulebook? Does your league not have a written rulebook? Contact me! I can help.
