Someone Make Deal Please

The trade deadline is winding down and nothing has happened. No major move, very, very boring. On a strange note, Gammons said that the White Sox are willing to just give the Mets a prospect to keep Benson away from the Twinkies. They do not have enough to pull off another deal themselves, but they can certainly make 1/3 of a deal. This was apparently close to happening last night, but fell through. I guess this will be interesting to monitor throughout the day. I am just torn about giving up Peterson for a guy who's career ERA is over 4.00. Maybe he has figured it out, but I do not think this a move the Mets need to make. I'd rather see them give Heilman a shot and see what they have there. They can make an unknown quantity a known quantity. Has Heilman improved? Let the Mets find out. Benson said he likes the Mets, so if he does, the Mets are the front runners to get him in the off-season. No need to trade away a quality arm when there is more pressing needs than the one they are about to trade for. Stand pat if you are not going to address you glaring bullpen problem. Maybe the Mets think this will really help? It might, but you have to score runs and the pen needs hold things down to win a game and that is something the Mets struggle to do consistantly. As of now, the Mets may be back in the driver's seat since the Pirates are still asking for Jason Kubel and the Twins will not trade him. However, the Braves are still lurking and are prepared to possibly offer Jose Capellan and Andy Marte. Marte was considered to be better than Wright prior to this year so this is an interesting offer that might garner some interest from Littlefield.

* * *

  • Leiter was vintage Leiter as he threw 27 pitches in the first inning. Leiter ended up going six innings giving up three his and walked two while K'ing only one.

    Five of the eight position players for the Mets had at least one hit by the 2nd inning. Cammy went deep twice. When Cammy goes deep, he goes on binges. However, the big story of the day has to be Eric "Last Guy Anyone Thought Would Hit for the Cycle" Valent did just that. He hit for the friggin' cycle. Someone just won a Lexus. I'm not sure, but I believe at start of every game I can hear Healy's annoying voice talk about someone winning a Lexus if a Met player hits for the cycle. Also, Ty's average is up to a healthy .285 and Wright picked up a few hits.

    I wish the Mets can face Rocky Biddle everyday.

  • Eric Neal from ESPN has a great outlook on the Randy Johnson trade in his new article.

    He says NO to the Dodgers, NO to the Angels, NO to anyone but the Bombers.

    That's weak. That's just a whorish glory grab. Why not go to work for Microsoft while you're at it? Why not jump in with Goliath and teach little David a lesson? Why not join the armada for a storm of the Falklands?

    Don't talk to me about the ring. He's got one. Don't talk to me about the trophy. He's got something more valuable.

    He's got a rep. He's a Yankee-killer. It's late October, 2001, and the Dynasty Boys are coming to town, and there's the Unit, looking like Yojimbo, standing tall, cutting down one pinstriped hitter after another.


  • Yankees plan to announce their plans for a $750,000,000 stadium. Now this is interesting, if the Yankees get funding, the Mets have to get some as well.

  • ESPN Power Rankings say this about the Expos.

    Don't be surprised if the 'Spos cath the Mets and escape the NL East basement by the end of the season.

    What he hell are they talking about? The Mets are 9.5 up on the Expos and 2.5 out of second place after playing really shitty. ESPN has such disdain for the Mets it actually clouds their common sense. They print non-sensical stuff about the Mets to just take jabs at them.

  • Why won't this go away? It has been well documented by bloggers that Zambrano has Leiter-esque pitch counts. There is no way this deal should get done. I finally feel like Kazmir is making some headway. Yeah, he is unproven and who knows what he'll end up being, but safety in numbers. The more good prospects you have, the more you a chance of one sticking. Besides, I feel like you can get a lot more for Kazmir.

  • Kazuo made is 22nd error.

  • Leiter is not the ERA leader...for now.

  • That Cameron thing was awesome. For anyone that doesn't know, some guy I guess was heckling Cameron. Cameron made the bet that if he hit two homeruns, the fan had to move. Cameron hit the two, but the fan did not hold up his end of the bargain. But hey, can you really trust a French Canadian?

    Good day, sun shines!
    There have been times of hardship when I felt unhappy missing knowledge about opportunities of getting high yields on investments. I was a dump and downright stupid person.
    I have never imagined that there weren't any need in big initial investment.
    Now, I feel good, I started to get real income.
    It's all about how to select a proper companion who uses your funds in a right way - that is incorporate it in real deals, parts and divides the income with me.

    You may ask, if there are such firms? I'm obliged to answer the truth, YES, there are. Please be informed of one of them:

    Generic Viagra (sildenafil citrate; brand names include: Aphrodil / Edegra / Erasmo / Penegra / Revatio / Supra / Zwagra) is an effective treatment for erectile dysfunction regardless of the cause or duration of the problem or the age of the patient.
    Sildenafil Citrate is the active ingredient used to treat erectile dysfunction (impotence) in men. It can help men who have erectile dysfunction get and sustain an erection when they are sexually excited.
    Generic Viagra is manufactured in accordance with World Health Organization standards and guidelines (WHO-GMP). Also you can find on our sites.
    Generic Viagra is made with thorough reverse engineering for the sildenafil citrate molecule - a totally different process of making sildenafil and its reaction. That is why it takes effect in 15 minutes compared to other drugs which take 30-40 minutes to take effect.

    Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
    The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
