    The point is to acquire players without giving up talent from within. Hairston is free, and probably not too expensive.

    I stated I hoped the Mets would acquire a quality OFer, and resign Hairston -- a productive RH bat.

    The other day when I stopped in the San Diego office he asked me if I wanted more coffee and or a magizine. He looks good as a receptionist.

    Well I've very relieved that this deal happened. Not that I thought Wright was leaving town anytime soon, but with the Mets you never know until the deal is inked. It's a great deal for both sides and David Wright will end up going down as perhaps the best Met of all time now. Hopefully we can get RA under contract and keep developing the young guns until things turn around for the organization.

    Of course, but down the road it is often revealed that the subjective analysis and rating was not accurate. Regardless of how it was rated, if years later it proves to have been better than it was perceived, the reality is that the perception was false.

    i think he is more than a receptionist, fact is he had many job offers from around baseball when he was fired. He obviously has talents that help an organization, you can say he is not a good fit to be a GM and that is fair, but he did many other things well even as a GM that helped this team and again all I have to say is look t the Mets staff right now and you will see that all 5 guys were brought in by Minaya, their best reliever is a Minaya guy as well.

    Not a coincidence in the slightest that David Wright got $500k more than Johan Santana did to become the highest paid Met of all time.

    David Wright and Mets agree to 7 year extension

    Is only fair IMO.

    Unfortunately, it looks like the Wilnotpons are also Mets for life.
