    Any more nutty than did the Twins fans when Santana was traded?

    Has anyone bothered to consult with any Blue Jays fans on this? I do believe that you and the other Admins here may need to dig a fairly wide moat (throw a few crocodiles in for good luck) if word got out that another team wanted their ace. If he were truly available (trade or free agency), the Mets would have to compete with offers from the Cubs, LA Dodgers, SF Giants, Red Sox and Yankees. The only advantage the Mets would have over the Red Sox and Yankees is that they're an NL team, whereas the other two are AL East teams, the Blue Jays' division.

    I believe that Mets fans should consider themselves very lucky to have gotten Johan Santana for merely a song.

    I like Halladay, I'd love to see him on the Mets, but I don't think he will be a Met. Some team is going to swoop in and sign him for some outragous amount, I have a feeling Roy could be the next Barry Zito. But, I said could, for future reference to someone who will someday dig up old threads and see this.

    Just curious...should we have paid OP 36 for 3? He's in the minors or on the DL or whatever...he's becoming the "new" Zambrano. I would rather have "wasted" an extra 12 or whatever on Derk Lowe to bring him here. Livan has been good but woudn't you rather push Maine back one ( or leave him there) knowing that Lowe would be a better number 2 (or 3 if you need go go L R L)? I'd over pay Halladay to get him here. Use him for a few then release him when he stops performing.

    I disagree. Anyone who thinks he can continue to be this good for 6-7 years is only fooling themselves. Take into account the economic factor as well.

    Second best winning percentage against the yanks in history as a starter!
    Kudos to him for that, but that doesn't really mean a great deal to anyone except the Yankees and Red Sox.

    I'll still hold out for him. in May,GM's don't even think about getting high priced guys. In November especially (and July),all of a sudden,they see how their season went,check to see what holes need to be filled and then try to sign someone that one would least expect. many teams know that having 2 main guys in a rotation is always a good thing. if Roy gets traded to somewhat low budget team with high expectations,like CC last year,expect that pitcher as a rent-a-guy.i wouldn't rule anything out.

    No but he may get Derek Lowe money or money the team obviously doesnt wish to pay.

    I'll just wait for free agency then. will give up less guys than in a trade.

    The Jays aren't going to trade him so long as they are 3rd or better in the division. Rays proved last year you don't need a $150M+ payroll to win.

    I'm patient if they decide to keep him and wait for a free agent deal after the season.

    You would need to give up wayyy too much to get him right now. Especially since the jays are in the hunt... for now.
