Why is anyone a hater for having wanted to keep a Cy Young award winner?
If the Wilpons actually wanted to win and were willing to spend, we wouldn't have to trade an ace to fill other holes.
I agree...but we are nowhere close to contending. So given the circumstances, this deal made sense.
The people who hate on TDA are the same guys who overrate guys like Duda and Tejada. The same people who wouldn't want us to trade Nimmo for Cargo, etc.
I still think we should sign Bourn.
And we def could have signed Soria, Fujikawa, Wilson, Madson, Soriano...
"I still think we should sign Bourn.
And we def could have signed Soria, Fujikawa, Wilson, Madson, Soriano" And give up HOW many draft picks? Do you want this team to have 2013 CHANCE for playoffs & then be out of contention for next 5+ yrs?? Isn't Omar signing so many FAs a BIG part of the problem w/ lack of talent in current Mets farm system???
Duda is terrible. When will people realize this?
Every team has a Duda in their farm system.
Maybe true, but they still wouldn't have built a team that could last. And they'd have the same problem with aging stars that they do now... It's a vicious cycle and it doesn't help the team win anything.
The franchise needs infusion of young talent who can be here for a long time. Sandy has picked up three huge pieces for guys that weren't going to help this team accomplish anything.
