was the first time I knew something was wrong with the Wilpons. He was one of the best offensive and defensive players this franchise ever had. On top of that, he was a fan favorite. We knew he wanted to go back to Seattle, so it was incumbent upon us to top Seattle's offer. But all we did was match. That's when I knew the Wilpons were not committed to winning.

Is it just one guy behind a computer with multiple accounts or are there really like fifty of them (cobra, alfolerud, jsmet, etc.)?

John Olerud is my all-time favorite ball player.. But I really can't blame that on Fred.. He wanted to go home.. His wife's opinion was a big factor as well.. I wish he would stayed and they would have tried to have blowed him away.. But it is not like they just let him go..

It wasn't about money with Olerud he just wanted to be closer to his family in Washington.

But we should have offered more money to change his mind.

Playing in NYC for 4 seasons instead of Seattle isn't so bad for an incremental few million a season.
