  • Roster Shakeup

    The Mets need some fresh faces. The rotation is a mess and the roster is just too old. Throw some players out there who you think are available and would help spur this stagnant Mets team.

    There are reports that the Mets are considering Derrik Turnbow. I see no harm in sending him to New Orleans for a while to see if he can put it all back together. If it doesn't work, they can drop him.
    They took a flyer on Danny Graves a couple of years ago. (He was another in the long, long, long line of Peterson falures). I see no harm in this move.

    First and foremost though - Delgado has got to go.

        Your only choices that I like are Richie Sexson, Kevin Millar, and Xavier Nady. The others would cost too much or aren't good.

          Barry Zito?

            I think LaRoche could be had. Torre and the Dodger organization don't seem to have much faith in him, and he could steal some AB's from Delgado.

            Nady would certainly be the best option right now, but considering how well he's hitting, he'll be way too costly. I think Sexson is sort of the in between -- the Mariners seem willing to deal him, and he's in the last year of his contract.

              I'm sure the Giants would trade him, but the only reason I wouldn't take a chance on him is because of the length of his contract (I'm assuming the Giants would eat a ton of the contract, so the money part of the contract doesn't worry me).

                Nady. Don't get me started.
                Put it in the books.
