Word came down that Beltran offered himself to the Yankees for the same price tag as the Cards got him for.
PHEW! It would have been torture to watch him put up monster numbers in Yankee Coors Stadium.
It would’ve been worse to see Reyes in Yankee pinstripes but Beltran would’ve been plenty painful.
Lastings Milledge is headed to Japan to play for the Yakult Swallows. Wow, how the mighty prospects have fallen. BMF was so high on ’stings and I really thought he was destined to be a spark to the entire franchise after he hit that game tying HR at Big Shea… but it wasn’t meant to be.
Good luck in Yakult ‘Stings!
More bad news for the Wilponzis as people are now openly questioning whether MLB should seize control of the team.
The owners inability, not unwillingness, but INABILITY to sign Reyes is incredibly damning when it comes to ownership’s ability to field a competitive team.
I guess all attention now turns to Wright who if dealt at the deadline will save the Mets 16M in 2013.
I don’t care how much of a Wilpon sympathizer some fans may be - if they are unable to keep Reyes and Wright in back to back years they should be forced to sell.
