    He will get more than 5M from the Phillies.

    The "After-Roid" player is never as good as the "pre-roid" player(look at a-rod,giambi as recent examples of this) and if they need the roid's they aren't good pre-roid to begin with lol, that said...we all seem to be forgetting 1 very important thing, the Mets do not have 3-4 million laying around to give to one player, even if it magically appeared we'd be outbid by another team, sucks having no wiggle room.

    True, but his FA value has dropped significantly since the steroid suspension, even if he can be 2+fWAR type guy that's worth 2-5 million this season some GM's think he will get.

    People act like A-Rod sucks now. He still had a .342 wOBA this year with a terrible 2nd half.

    He's also 37 years old. A lot of players decline at this time, even if they never took steroids.

    That's mostly because a lot of Yankee fans are spoiled *******s.

    I think roids help him a bit, but roids does not help with hand eye coordination and Melky has always been a guy that does not K much and walks at a slightly above average rate.

    The Mets and Alderson also are not scared of signing a roids user.
    do not assume what Roids did or didnt do for Melky. Here's what we know: Until the last two years, Melky was a glorified 4th outfielder.

    The last two seasons he became an All Star. Then he tested positive.

    I wouldnt touch him with a 30-foot pole, especially since he'll be looking to sign for all star prices even though he's merely a 4th outfielder without the benefits of modern chemistry.
    "Mr. Martin Tanner, Baritone, of Dayton, Ohio made his Town Hall debut last night. He came well prepared, but unfortunately his presentation was not up to contemporary professional standards. His voice lacks the range of tonal color necessary to make it consistently interesting. Full time consideration of another endeavor might be in order."

    We know more than that, Cabrera's BB% and% have been the same, his LD% have gone up just a tick over the last 2 years, but nothing to suggest that roids has helped him in that aspect. What has increase for sure was his ISO, which is why I am not assuming anything.

    Now, I am going to assume that given the fact that he was 26 when his performance started to get better one cannot ignore the fact that he was entering his prime and that also may have been a reason for his better production. We seen how many guys who reach 26-27 and have been 4th outfielder types start to produce better.

    Again for a 1 year deal it would be an ideal signing, if he goes back to stinking like he did in Atlanta, then it was just a 1 year deal, if he does well, then the Mets gamble would of paid off.

    Agreed it would be worth the gamble at 5M or so, but Fredo won't pony up and the Phillies will. Must be nice rooting for a big market franchise.

    This I agree with, I don't think he was totally aided by the roids. Something like .290/.330/.450 would be expected.

    Yes, hopefully the Mets are smart enough to target him along w/ Juan Pierre, both players will make peanuts next year.

    Agreed with Sick and YS. If he's not going to command a lot of money, there are several options, none of them terrible:

    1.) He stinks it up, he's out of here in a year. If that.
    2.) He performs to an All-Star level again, tests positive again. Benefit from the production for the short period of time he was active.
    3.) He performs well for the duration of the season.

    If he gives us the slashlines YS mentioned he could be a 2-3 WAR type guy.

    He won't cost much and the Mets need OF help as desperately as possible.

    If he is out there make the move.
