I largely agree with this...but what is really concerning me is the
Catching situation. It sounds like the Mets are determined to get Molina
who is so old for a catcher, and has so up side that I can't see what the
hell they are thinking here. In addition, they would have to give up a
#40 draft choice to sign him. Teams in the Mets position don't hand over
higher level picks for 35 year old catchers with declining OPS+ hovering
All I can say is Backman...Oberkfeld.... Backman Oberkfeld.....
This is the team that wouldn't give Piazza another year..and he was a lot
better than Molina in even his worse season.
2. Like Damon, Alex Cora is represented by Scott Boras. And while Boras is
sure to annoy many in the public for asking (and probably) getting a lot
of dough for clients such as Damon and Matt Holliday. But his best job of
all might be getting $2 million for Cora from the Mets.
Cora is a terrific guy and a really smart baseball player. But he needed
surgery on both thumbs, has no power, is a below-average hitter and, at
age 34, has lost most of his range. This kind of player probably should be
getting a non-roster invite with a chance to make $750,000 if he makes the
team. I can’t figure out why the Mets would feel compelled to assure
Cora $2 million, especially at a time when their payroll is tight and they
have so many needs elsewhere.
And Cora actually can earn another $1 million in games started bonuses and
there is a $2 million option for 2011.

You must be a stupid engineer then, because politcs and technology have been attached at the hip since the 1st dynasty in Ancient Egypt. I guess you missed that one."
