Solid move for the Mets - Doug M is always underrated - especially among the fantasy crowd. In real baseball he's worth every penny.
All they had to do was give up an overacheiving 1B prospect coming off a major wrist surgery? Brilliant. Great move. Everyone knew BOS had to move DM, I guess his price really did get deflated because of the ball scandal.
On a side note - I was playing Yahoo pool the other day and got to talkin with this chick I was playin against. She was saying she was in the air and travels all the time. Of course that leads to "what do you do" - and her response: Oh, I work for the Boston Red Sox.
Of course Im skeptical - but I ask what she does for them... Turns out she's a player liason. Im still skeptical of course, but after a little baseball chat she obviously knows what she's talking about. Now, she could have gotten a lot of the stuff we discussed by reading the paper, but then she throws out - Doug M will be traded within 24 hours.
This was yesterday.
Im a lot less skeptical. She actually added me to her friends file on Yahoo. Who in the hell did I just meet online?
