Man, you are flowing with baseball knowledge.[/QUOTE]
I literally laughed out loud on the train.
I received a shhhhh.
The nice thing about this move prior to the winter meetings, is it allows Sandy to make a trade and not have to overpay or surrender prospects just to get someone.
Now he can walk away from a deal...
Ken Rosenthal @Ken_Rosenthal 17m
Papelbon is owed $13M in ’14, $13M in ’15 with $13M vesting option for ’16. #Phillies could sign another closer for less.
Good luck with that.
Back off PuntaBelieve.
You will rue this day!
He missed spelled his own user name.
Shut up Puntman.
Well played indeed.
I bet MetsPunt69 will close this thread down.
I wonder if YoungSpunta will chime in about your flopping the letters "AM" from "MA".
MaPunt, you and Ya Punta Believe said the team was going to punt.
Trade Murphy for Gausman.
Trade Montero for Ownings.
Trade Ike for Joyce.
Just heard that the Mets front office pushed the deal through 4 years from Francesa. They wanted it done before the winter meetings.
Take it for what its worth.
His reasoning is that he is that he can be traded in his final year, where at 15 it would be much harder.
The only way I would be ok with the 4th year is if the contract is front loaded, but then again it's the Mets we are talking about.
The trend is not to give long term contracts out. Desperate teams do, and it hurts them in the long term.
How did the last 10 year contract work out for the Angels?
It really is a good defensive outfield.
Now go get me a shortstop.
The love Angel Pagan gets on this forum is absurd.
And they got two picks for Reyes.
At least get your facts straight.
Young in CF, Grandy in Right and Matt Joyce in Left.
Who the **** drinks that ****?
But now he is wrong, he said they were going to punt. I wonder if he would get mad if I called him Punty McPunt.
