Former GM's take on the winter meetings

This is very well said, especially after 15 rumors had Pat Burrell going to the Mets etc. "The important thing to remember during this week is that rumors are just that - rumors. Most of what you read or hear this week won't come true, so don't get too worked up about it. In fact, most of the news coming out of here won't be entirely reliable. Even this. In fact, you're wasting your time right now by reading this sentence." - Paul D., San Diego Padres I am thankful the Nationals signed Pudge to a 2 year deal to prevent the Mets from doing the same. Still don't understand offering Molina a contract (even tho we won't lose a draft pick and it was apparently 1 year 6 million). I am hopeful the Mets don't act on Corey Hart for John Maine. Mets need to keep pitching and add more, not trade it away for another average outfielder who strikes out a ton. Thanks for the continued posts, I'll try to post more frequently in the coming week, and will comment on any Mets signings or trades as they happen. Go Mets! - Anthony


  1. Keep up the good work! Are we going to hear your take on Tiger Woods anytime soon (just kidding, please don't).

    Anyway, if one Tony Marsala was wearing the Mets GM hat, what key relatively big moves would you shoot for this offseason (if any) and why??

  2. Burrell? Corey Hart? Sounds like it just up the Mets alley! Where do u think Vlad will go, if anywhere?---Anoynymous means Holbrook in this instance

  3. Per usual, the guys across town in the Bronx gets better by giving up a kid with an exploding elbow and a talented OF prospect who his all of 4 HR in AAA last year for a legit CF.

    I'm so tired of this mess...

    Ant-knee...., make it better, back me off this ledge !

  4. Just addressed the Granderson trade in a blog post, Ronnie.

    Holbrook- I am praying Vladdy doesn't wind up on the Mets although Omar does have a fascination with him. He is washed up and only needs to get a very incentive laden deal from an AL team since he can't move enough to play the field anymore.

    Cotmetal- I will be posting my Mets off-season wish list in a few minutes. I know you've been anxiously awaiting it
