This is a poll i saw on Yahoo sports and was surpised by the results.Not of the first place team (though i disagree), but who they ranked as third, fourth , and fifth place teams.

I want to see what the cafe thinks.

Well Oakland traded two stud SPs for unproven talent and Arizona spent some 78? M on Russ Ortiz and Glaus. Take your pick.

I don't see how it can be anyone but Arizona at this point. They owe Troy Glaus and Russ Ortiz $78 million over the next 4 years. How are the Mets even close in the poll? Yes, Benson is overpaid (3 years $22.5 million) and Pedro might be declining ($53 million for 4 years) but which team improved it self more for next year? The Mets IMO. The Mets also have a much larger budget than Arizona.

Team A with a $70 million a year budget blows around $75 million over the next 4 years and gets an overrated SP and a chronically injured 3B who hits for power and no average.

Team B with a $100 million a year budget blows around $75 million over the next 4 years and gets an overrated SP and a HOF pitcher in decline.

Neither are good moves IMO but Arizona is on crack. :-°

All these results do is confirm my perception that Yahooites still dont know about MLB.
