Delgado

Postby killiansjmd » Wed Dec 15, 2004 10:10 am

Mets up their offer to 3 years $40 million for Delgado. Even though Shea isn't a great hitters park I think Delagdo can hit anywhere. Mets really could use a big lefty bat in their lineup.

Do you guys think the Mets have a shot? and does the signing of Pedro help us land Delgado?

Whoever pays the most will land Delgado. 13.3 M a year?...too much IMO. The market has gone totally insane.

I do not think any player is going to sign with the Mets because Pedro is there. They are not considered contenders with or without him.

Wow..why don't the Mets go after younger guys like Sexson or Pavano. Why do they always have to sign the guys who's best years are behind them. I think that's too much cash to offer up for Delgado but I don't think it would deminish his fantasy value if he does sign with the Mets.

Little brother complex. With Bowden in DC, the Marlins letting their best players go or trading them, and the Mets ineptitude, the Braves and Phillies will be battling for the division for the next few years, at least. Sort of like the Sox and Yankees in the AL East.

Phils have no pitching. And as of right now, the Braves don't look too hot in that department either.

The graveyard for over-the-hill, over-paid superstars is getting crowded. The Yankee's might blow a lot of money, but at least they have something to show for it. Mets management is on crack!

At least after next season, we will be down to one overpaid, over the hill waste of food...Giambi. And with any type of luck, he either takes a buyout or gets his contract voided.

The Mets will be awful in a couple years and will be so tied up in overpriced players they will be dead last in the division again.

Hey, I like Sexson but you guys aren't going to actual sit here and compare them are you? Please. Get real. There isn't a comparison between Sexson and Delgado. And all this crying about the Mets is hilarious.

Who is crying? As far as a I am concerned your ownership and management have done great service to the Yankee cause so far this off-season (the Benson deal not withstanding). Now if you do not mind, could you go sign Orlando Cabrera and Matt Clement?
