not a bad point..but in that case it'll go down even quicker won't it? I would imagine he would get an extra K or 2 per game in the AL because of him facing a SP and now that will be gone...

Good point


I'm confused....you do realize the AL has the DH and the NL has pitchers batting correct? :-?

DOH!

it's been a long morning..yes..I realize that. For some reason I was thinking he was going from NL to AL...

never mind!

:-D

that does change things some now that I think about it. I still don't think he'll get much more then 1.05 ks per innings average this year and I see a decline as he pitches..

No problem, I had my "doh" moment here during an early morning last week. ;-D

Great move for my Mets, cannot wait until opening day, it has been a while since we had some excitement. Pedro was the best move Omar could make, now get some bats and we could make a run at the division.

As some have noted, for fantasy purposes I will more than likely let him pass by in the 2nd rd - too much risk.

Shea Stadium and the National League helps boost his value, but he is with the Mets and most of their big signings bust, so buyer beware.

While I understand why you would want to defend your team, where is the flawed logic?? I would love for Omar to rebuild the Mets into a contender but the fact remains that they haven't had any impact signings in a long time. Their track record indicates that they miss the boat on FA that are in their prime. I would be upset as well if I was you but don't shoot the messenger. :-?

The flawed logic is loosely tied to post hoc ergo proctor hoc, which is basically "since A happened, B must have happened because of it."

Since (the Mets have made bad signings in the past), then (this one is bound to be a bad one as well).

That's the flaw. New GM, new regime, new pitcher, new year.

I understand that and I would try to be positive as well but you also can't ignore the past. They have had a long time of failed signings so it has been expected, much like Yankee fans expect them to get the big names. Call it being spoiled but I prefer to call it what Yankee fans are accustomed to. If you are used to the wife making lunch for you every day, you might be a little surprised the day that she doesn't. If Pedro succeeds, most of the past will be forgotten. :-)
