    Sorry, I had a pretty rough day today. Ordinarily, that sentence gets omitted and I'm sorry I said it (check your PM).

    However, everything AFTER it still stands. If you have to hire a coach (Henderson) for the express purpose of keeping one player in line while simultaneously hurting not one but several of your team's players (including your All-Star shortstop, who already has proven that he's a star) with said coach, it is in no way, shape, or form worth it.

    "Joe Beningo has said on SNY he blames Leiter, Franco, and Peterson more than Duquette for trading Kazmir."

    If you had a hierarchy to put blame on the Kazmir trade, it would go something like this...
    1. John Franco
    2. Al Leiter
    3. Jim Duquette
    4. Rick Peterson

      I actually can't wait until Milledge posts a good year because I'm sick and tired of people not seeing how crazy the reasons behind trading him were...immaturity for a 23 year-old, c'mon.

        "immaturity"

        Well, it'd be nice if Milledge were merely immature. However, the words to describe Milledge are not "immaturity" but rather "borderline neurosis." I'm not debating he'll be a star...with the aforementioned nine different teams.

          Or maybe he won't and the reasons for trading him will be proven to be correct. And given that he's NOT on the Mets now I hope the Mets got teh better end of the deal.

            Frankly, this is a tempest in a teacup. If all the Mets have to worry about is what some immature kid playing for the Nats has to say about them then they are in tall cotton.

            As for Milledge his immaturity is grating and it will end up costing him a lot financially and personally. Like Sheffield he will end up being a nomad. He will retire a rich man, but he could have been even richer both financially and personally.

              It's not as if I'm rooting for him to be the new Mets killer, I'm just saying that he got an unfair shake in NY, and he deserves a chance. He's a good player, and the Mets screwed with him because he didn't fit the universal Mets flat-line personality.

                I don't know tha the got an unfair shake. He got a chance to play in the majors at a fairly young age. becaus ethey brought him up so young he'll hit arbitration and FA as a very young man.

                yeah they wanted him to be a little more worthy of this treatment. They are a business.

                    LMillz is going to have a serious target on him, and not just when Wagner pitches. Pedro just might communicate some . . . "displeasure" when he pitches against the Nats.

                      Not in terms in playing time, in terms of treatment. To be treated like a criminal when all he did was make a rap song is borderline insane.

                        It was more than that, and he wasn't treated like a criminal.

                          Looks like the Nats games could become more funny then the Phillies games

                            What else did he do "off the field?" He's no Elijah Dukes, he didn't beat anyone up, he released a rap CD with lyrics the Mets felt were inappropriate. I just wish that some untalented players on the Mets would start acting out, cause that seems to be the only way players get traded.

                              Yeah they didn't trade Mota this offseason.

                              And other than that I don't think they have an "untalented" players on the major league roster.

                                Brian Schneider, Carlos Delgado, and Scott Schoeneweis are all players I would count as dead-weight.
