This is why the Mets are known as the worst team money can buy. I think Daniel Snyder takes sports management lessons at Shea Stadium.

Both my gf and my brother's wife are Long Island Mets fans. How we, as Yankees fans, did that is even beyond us. My sister-in-law's brother says Shea is "where hall-of-famers go to die".

Well, that's what Roberto Alomar did. Adiebee is also a Long Island Mets fan. I just called her and told her the news and she just groaned. She's been down this road before. I'd laugh a bit more, but overpaying for an old star going rapidly downhill is a pain Redskins fans know all too well.

Gotta credit the Bosox [sorry Dave] for hanging tough here. The pressure to retain a sentimental favorite [and first ballot Hall of Famer] like Pedro Martinez must be incredible, but they're doing the right thing.

Why would Pedro even want to go to the Mets... they are the freakin' METS!! If the price is right I guess. (Hopefully he will "die" at Shea... so my Phils don't have to worry about him pitching well)

The Sox may be doing the right thing in the long run but not the short. I think one of the things players around baseball like about the Yankees after they see dollar signs is a level of loyalty. Loyalty, of course, is expensive though.

The two responses I got were "yuck" and "great". I thought Minaya knew better but he's been so hamstrung the last few years that signing a big name must have made his head spin.
