Of any of the Mets free agent pitchers the one that needed to be signed was LaTroy Hawkins. I thought his career was done early in the season but he proved me wrong. He especially performed well when Bobby P. went down. He was the veteran leader for the young guys too.
Maybe I'm wrong, but I don't think so. If we can't sign a guy who wanted to sign with us, but because we didn't shell out perhaps an additional $500K he goes with the Rockies.
Something's not right here. If this is the way we are approaching the marketplace - nothing has changed. I remain cautiously optimistic, but that may be in doubt. I'm trying to remain positive.
