I just don't see the big upgrade here. Sure it sounds nice, but the Yankees did much more by getting RJ. He is a stud, and again makes the Yankees the king of New York and most likely baseball.
As far as the Mets go, they are just trying to be noticed in their own town. Okay, time to go continue drinking now - good night.
Same team, many different players. Delgado ain't Mo Vaughn (and yes, I know Delgado isn't a Met- yet- but hypothetically). Beltran, as much as I think he is overpriced, is still a good player. Pedro is the best pitcher in baseball (don't disagree with me, I'm way too tired of arguing this).
RJ isn't Pedro. RJ is 42 and pitching off of a plastic knee. I see injuries or downfall this year.

What if Chipper retires tomorrow? What if the Braves don't win this year? What if you're just bitter? What if there's no point to talking about this?
If ifs and buts were candy and nuts...
