Comment on Thought Exercise: 2011 Expansion Draft by mike-BHurst

I probably would have stuck it out with Havens but in the long run, Ceciliani might be the smarter/healthier choice. And I still have hopes for Dylan Owen. So he would have come at R.A. Dickey's or Cahoon's expense.

Comment on That Carlos Beltran, He’s Pretty Good by Paul E

Wow!! JD, Love the 75% comment-Wilpon must have been channelling you last month. Beltran is truly a great player who once was a 5-tool monster...under rated? Absolutely. Well compensated for his efforts? Yeah! But, every one of these guys who were free-agent superstars definitely are going downhill by year 7 of a long term deal. Still, he's at 144 OPS+ (Mike Schmidt was 147 for his career)

JD, Yeah, I thought about Bay, but the risk and the contract were too much for me. If there was a possibility for a pre-draft deal that would have allowed us to take on that salary in exchange for other considerations (such as a post-draft deal for one of your minor leaguers who had been protected) that would have been a possibility. But the scenario didn't really allow for that.

Comment on Triples! by Jeff

JD. Good post but I think you make one assumption that has yet to be proven: that Jose is asking for this money....In other words, that he sent the Mets a basic idea of how much he would like. So I think Wilpon just figured that Reyes is similar to Crawford and so the contract financial request would be in the same ballpark. Jeff

Well, losing to the Yanks always hurts. 'Nuff said. Bill
