    Because we don't want to win.

    @AnthonyDiComo: Ike Davis was asked about his status as "a Met for life." "Um...that's not me."

    Santana is going to give us more than most of you think. It wasn't surpising he ran out of steam last year and then the ankle set him back. I think he willl be a solid no. 3. There will be no takers at the trade deadline however due to salary and injury fears.

    is that supposed to mean:

    "Dude, you got the wrong guy...it was Wright that just signed that deal"...

    or "I'm out of this dump as soon as I hit Free Agency"...

    Met for life would mean he would be a Met forever no matter what. He's not saying he wouldn't be a Met for his whole career though if things go well.

    I would like to agree with you that Santana will give us something but...Other than some magic that he had years ago, the guy basically gives you what Tom Glavine gave us after he came here when the Braves refused to pay him...75 mph changeup; 80 mph changeup; 83 mph changeup...it's not a "changeup" when every pitch is the same soft toss pitch...changeup kind of implies that it differentiates from your fastball, and he hasn't had a fastball in years...

    I always get confused "former" means the first choice?

    I would imagine that Ike would be a perfect fit eventually for his hometown D'Backs...he would rake in that ballpark...

    Yes. Former as is before, latter as in after.

    Where are all these interviews coming from (Sandy, Ike, etc.)? Have they been on the radio? Winter meetings are over, right.. so, where is this all happening?

    Why is Sandy Alderson making declarations like that at all, let alone at the "holiday" party?

    Anyway, it's from Adam Rubin so I don't trust him too much. Would like to hear Sandy's exact comments.

    Clarifying:

    @AnthonyDiComo: Ike Davis was just asked about his "new contract" and his status as "a Met for life." His reply: "Um...that's not me."

    Well lets see.

    Would it be smart for Alderson to say the roster is going to be flipped upside down while at the teams HOLIDAY PARTY?

    Probably not.

    He was able to get the fastball up to 90 which is good enough to make the change effective. Your compare to Glavine is not entirely off base but I think Johan now is a little better and hence a serviceable No. 3.
