    The Nats still owe Werth $45M over the next 2 years. He's going to get the starting spot this year at least.

    Yep.

    I kind of think the "deal" with the Nats was a brilliant ploy by Cespedes' agent. Same with approaching the Yankees. It was a very clever attack on Fred by media.

    Fred grudgingly acts like a responsible owner when he's under scrutiny and the fan base is raging at him.

    Unfortunately it's the only way.

    Well all right!

    Still need an 8th inning guy (Bastardo's a 7th inning guy) but the Mets should be ready to rumble this April.

    LOL!

    O.K., the pounding the Wilpons were taking from fans and press had nothing to do with the last minute acquisitions that pushed last year's team over the top.

    Got it.

    Wilpon refusal to spend money or give multi-year deals hijacks every potential move.

    Why shouldn't it be mentioned when those moves/non-moves are discussed?

    So you don't think giving their customers what they want is a factor in their business decisions?

    When criticism gets loud enough to threaten interest in the team they sometimes move.
