    Bourn & Valverde?

    MLB Unique posted their predictions, here's a copy/paste:


    27. Jose Valverde - New York Mets (2 years, $17 M)

    5. Michael Bourn - New York Mets (6 years, $84 M)

    What do you guys think? Would you be opposed to signings like this? Now we most likely wont spend this type of money in the off-season, but if we did woudl you approve?

    There is no chance of that happening.

    Hell no that would be such a mistake, glad we don't have enough money to do it.

    I will say this right now. There is absolutely no chance in hell either of those signings take place.

    Even if we had a chance, it's not signings that we should want.

    Agreed.

    The only players that interest me are Mike Napoli, Angel Pagan(I know) BJ Upton, and Josh Hamilton.

    seconded on the 0 chance of this happening. i have 0 faith in a productive offseason
    This is just the beginning. Let's keep it up. History is bound to repeat itself. Let's hope that this time it's for the best.

    I don't want any of those two right now.

    You only get guys like that when you have a team ready to make a legit run that has a legit core already.

    We don't have a legit team ready for a run, and we don't have a legit core. This is a Kansas City Royals move. It's pathetic.

    4th place here we come AGAIN.

    I wouldn't mind Bourn on a 3 or 4 year deal at 11-12 a year, but that's not happening.

    Get Valverde out of here.

    If we're picking up a FA CF I want to see Upton here.

    Also, the Mets' pick isn't protected. I don't want to give up a first rounder again.

    Pretty sure I said no 100%

    6 years 84 mil for Bourn? GTFO lol, that is like Carl Crawford money for him.

    I'm against that. I don't want to give Bourn that much because he is getting up there in age and, with speed being his primary asset, who knows what he'll be like in a few years.

    As for Valverde, I think it's clear that we need to stray away from giving relievers so muhc money. Just look at K-Rod, Putz, Frank Frank, Heath Bell, etc...

    That money could be used to sign draft picks and make moves in the future when we're on the brink of becoming a very good team.
