So, I'm trying a new format today. Thoughts? Criticisms?
Meet the Mets
I don't exactly have a place to put him, but would love to have Figgins.
3 years $30 million is awfully steep for a one-year wonder.
H/t to Metsmerized. Who would have ever known that Lenny Dykstra would reach such heights. He is so... articulate.
Ah... That looks about right. Scouting the Sally also brings us some Eric Beaulac video.
Phew, I can rest easy now. 2010 is all squared away then.
This still would be better than signing him to a Mark Teixeira-level contract. I'd rather be spurned at the beginning of the courtship than be stuck with him for 8 years.
Around the NL East
I guess I can keep my vigil going for Bobby Valentine then. Even though Fire Jim Bowden thinks it's too close to call.
Matt Lindstrom on the trading block
Pure speculation, but always interesting. Another one who got away.
Yeah, no major complaints from me about this year's choices. Hudson did probably win on reputation, however. Rob Neyer gives his take as well.
Spurned in favor of Ronnie Belliard. This is the Mets' savior?
I take it that he's either satisfied for now with his porn collection or he found a suitable dealer here.
The farewell tour just added a few more shows.
The Mets might be "favourites", but beware the AL East arms race.
