that said, in two years, maybe even next year, both these guys won't be anything really, maybe pedro will have something left because he really wasnt as bad as his era this year, he got shelled in september, but sosa wont have much left at all.

still, it would be money poorly spent unless the mets somehow miraculously compete and get into the playoffs next year, which i dont see happening. but the only logic i can see behind this is to get more butts in the seats. the average met fan would be elated to have sammy sosa and pedro martinez on their team.
but ya see that's the same old crap from the mets... the mets and the knicks are so alike it's scary. put a few names on the court, make a run at the playoffs, get knocked out early and never put up a legit shot at a championship. it's spooky.

if the mets brought in sexson, sosa and pedro... in that shity ass division they're in, they might actually make the playoffs... but unless david wright becomes an absolute stud and jose reyes can go 2 innings without getting hurt, they have no legit shot at winning the title. isn't that why they're supposed to be playing? to win it all? ponderous... f'ing ponderous.


and 5 days after the fact... i'm still in complete denial over the fact that the muts brought felix the cat heredia over from the spankees... perhaps felix can hang out with pedro's midget.

shoot me now...

"Oakland starter Tim Hudson, targeted by the Cardinals in a potential trade, told MLB.com writer Michael Urban that he'd like to be a Cardinal and has dreamed of playing in St. Louis."


this would compensate and beyond for losing renteria if they land him.

boston goes out and snags the past his prime veteran who loved the yankees, so the yankees in turn snag the just entering his prime young pitcher who grew up a die hard red sox fan... gee... i wonder who won this battle...

ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Carl Pavano decided Saturday he wanted to pitch for the Yankees, and his agent and New York closed in on a four-year contract worth about $39 million.

i'm not at all sold on pavano, but i would much rather have him than wells. of course, if the sox plan to sign renteria and re-sign pedro, then i'd rather have those 3 than pavano, yes.

the yankees arent even close to done, i just wonder what theyre going to do that really makes big splashes...theres going to be something
