    - Harvey and Wheeler: Seaver and Koosman Part Deux or Wilson, Pulsipher, Isringhausen Part Deux?
    - Niese .. a nice number 3.

    While MAYBE not bad, I wouldn't say your vision is good.
    The bullpen can change from year to year. Just bring in new bodies.

    I'm not expecting too much from Santana, but he showed in the first half he could be a solid pitcher. He would be the veteran leader at the top of the rotation. He should be 100% by ST.

    Gee is very solid underrated pitcher and a nice #4.

    Harvey is already a beast, so I have no concerns about him. Wheeler is supposed to be better, and counting on him as your #5 takes all the pressure off.

    Niese has become an excellent #3, borderline #2.

    Yeah, RA Dickey without his facial hair is probably not a pleasant sight.

    DPLennon If I'm #Mets, and watching this potential rift developing between #Yankees and A-Rod, I may pick up pace of Wright negotiations.

    Mets May Start Talks With Wright & Dickey Next Week

    Do not worry the Mets will soon have meetings to discuss future meetings about setting the parameters for a possible new deal for Wright, right now what matters is that they get new underdog t shirts made for spring training.

    Right, DPLennon, because what's going to happen is this:

    1. Wright and the Yankees telepathically agree to a 2014 contract in 2012.
    2. Wright plays out his option in 2013, knowing for a fact that a baseball team will always do exactly what it tells him it will do.
    3. The Yankees, with new spending limitations, eat the entire A-Rod contract to get rid of him, and use a stop-gap to play 3B in 2013.
    4. The Yankees, again with new spending limitations, sign Wright to a blockbuster contract that blows away what any other team could have offered him.

    ...or not.

    Yeah it doesn't make sense to me how the Yankees if they are looking to get to 189 million to stay under the luxury tax would deal A-Rod, eat most of his contract, then if the Met's don't extend Wright give him 120+ million possibly.

    Between eating most of A-Rod's deal, and signing Wright you are talking close to 180-200 million dollars.

    I don't see it.

    I wouldn't worry about Wright going there.

    It's weird with these new Yankee spending "limitations" (i put it in quotations because i still don't believe it fully) they aren't automatically in the market for every great player.

    If George was still alive, i could easily see Reyes ending up at SS for them when the Marlins eventually trade him (which i am sure they will do) but his sons are not nearly as aggressive.

    It's a possibility Reyes ends up there (with Jeter needing a new contract after next year) but i don't see Wright being part of that equation.

    Saying that, i could see Wright in Philadelphia or LA in a heartbeat if the Mets can't extend him past this year.

    Arod + 100 mill to the Mets in exchange for David Wright.

    Hmmmmm I haven't heard anything yet about discussions lol

    Maybe it'll be "next week," or "next month," or "next year," or "never."
