M's make overtures to Delgado and Sexson

The M's have some decent young talent, and these guys would make pretty good additions, IMO, but they cost too much. The M's aren't going to be a winning for a few years, so I'd actually pass on anyone but Glaus, as that's what Seattle needs badly.

The Mets have (edit: reportedly) matched Arizona's offer (3yr/10M) to Sexson. Arizona's contract had injury stipulations in it and speculation is that Minaya guaranteed the entire contract.

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

Oh, yay, I wonder how many of my hitters will have been rumored to go to that singularity by the time the offseason is over.

I don't know but Sexson shouldn't be a surprise. If the Mets make any splash in the FA market it will be at 1B. That's part of the reason I think it's unrealistic that the Mariners could sign Delgado and Sexson.

Also, I don't think Sexson would have trouble at Shea. Hitters with warning track power struggle at Shea. Sexson could hit homers anywhere.

Yeah, Sexson has big-time pop, that's for sure. It's just something else about that place that ruins hitters for life. I'm not sure what it is...very elusive, it is.
