    We have seven players at 2B at right now. Why would we trade the best of the seven for an inept one with a larger salary?

    Vidro for Kris Benson, Jae Seo, or Steve Traschel maybe. We'll take Xavier Nady, too, now that you guys have Julio Franco!

    The Q: Can the Cubs hold a 6-5 lead with 2 outs and nobody on in the 9th?

    The A: No

    ***********My Rant on Bud Selig***********
    Selig is like a stray pigeon. Pigeons are too self-absorbed to care about anyone else. They poo on people they don't like; they poo on people they don't even know. The only real difference between Selig and a pigeon is that Selig intends to bury our heritage, our traditions, and our culture,

      Matsui is a "natural" SS -- Guzman is starting for you guys, right?

        Guzman is getting better. He hit over .300 with over half of his RBIs in his final 100 ABs plus he can play defense, something Matsui struggled to do at both positions.

          I think a trade involving Vidro for Benson would benefit both teams.. Both fill needs and they make close to the same amount of money dont they?

            Can Vidro even play anymore?

              The latest on him is that he is rehabbing his knee and they arent 100% sure he will start the season...

              He would be risky IMO...

                Doesn't seem worthy of its own thread, but I'm wondering what Omar is thinking right now.

                Mets will take a peek at Oliver
                Omar Minaya, who indicated he may add to the bullpen solely through signing veterans to minor-league contracts, has started to follow through on that prediction.

                Lefty Darren Oliver, who retired last year, intends to report to spring training with the Mets and will try to latch on in the bullpen, agent Jeff Frye said.

                The 35-year-old Oliver, who spent the bulk of his career with the Rangers, went 3-3 with a 5.94 ERA in 2004 with the Marlins and Astros. He pitched well in spring training last year with the Rockies as a starter, posting a 2.45 ERA while striking out seven and walking two in 14-2/3 innings, but did not make the rotation when the club opted for Jamey Wright. Oliver preferred free agency to pitching in Colorado's bullpen. But he posted a 9.38 ERA while making seven Triple-A starts with the Diamondbacks and Cubs last season before heading home.
                I have no idea why you'd pick up a guy who did 72 innings in 2004, but I remember his name as some so-called "Yankee killer", since his only redeeming quality was that he had a winning record against the Yanks, when Boston traded the much-maligned Carl Everett for him ("unwanted player for same" kind of trade).

                Anyway, here's Darren Oliver's career stats:

                  It is a weird signing for the Mets.. I think they are just desperate for lefties..

                  They gave up on Ishii, as they released him the other day...

                    I think signing guys for cheap contracts in bunches isn't really that bad of an idea. Middle relievers are so inconsistent season to season you might go with a quantity over (alleged) quality and see who pans out. It spreads the risk.

                    BTW, If you don't want Matsui, what makes you think that somebody else does. You can't just pile up all our scrubs and cash them in for a star.

                      Those middle relief guys are so random anyway. I have no problem throwing a bunch of minor league contracts out there. You never know who's gonna show up.

                        New York Post (registration required): "The Mets have all but completed a one-year contract with Chad Bradford in hopes the sidewinder can rediscover his health and ability to dominate righty hitters in 2006... The Yanks have moved closer to finalizing a contract with Miguel Cairo to serve as the team's utilityman."

                                I am hearing on XM (Kevin Kennedy) and from a friend that has Sirius (Steve Phillips) that there is a deal in place that the Mets are going to get Báez..
                                I have no details on what the Mets are giving up for him but that it is pretty close to a done deal.. Anyone hear anything else on this?
