    it's too bad he'll be going to a team where the Phillies and Braves will be doing most of the division winning.

    Ha!

    First good news this fan has seen in years. Instead of wasting money on ANOTHER player sliding fast into retirement, we finally grab a guy in his prime..

    This is a six tool guy with 10 years of prime production ahead of him AND he is a decent guy from what I've read. I hope he can handle big city pressure, but this guy is the real deal.

    Glavine and Pedro's best years are behind them, but hopefully this guy can bail them out of trouble a few times. Look for him to help those around him too as they see better pitches to keep walks from ballooning his RBI total.

    Mo Vaughn, Roberto Alomar, Bobby Bonilla, Roger Cedeno, Cliff Floyd, Mike Cameron, and even Tom Glavine... the list goes on..... People that were supposed to be BIG free agent signings were nothing but injury prone and were constantly striking out and hitting into double plays.

    FINALLY, the Mets atone for letting A. Rod get away. (But at least we can make fun of him for his ball slapping antics in the Yankee-Red Sox series last year).

    Now we just have to get rid of Piazza's salary. Time to trade him to an AL team with a DH slot open and free up some money. He's a menace on defense ANYWHERE right now. Assuming he is even healthy enough to play.

    We did make a big mistake in letting Al Leiter get away. He is starting to enter his twilight years, but he is smarter than the coach, and has a World Series ring on his finger from the Marlins which shows he has what it takes to teach the kids how to win. His ERA shows he knows how to pitch, he just couldn't get any run support to get him a better win-loss record. Plus he has somethiong none of the other pitchers have... guts.... We lost a big game pitcher who know how to get up for the big game. He will be missed.
