Man, are the Metropolitans forking out some cash this winter or what? They've already added Pedro Martinez and Carlos Beltran and I just saw on SportsCenter that they are the leading team in the Carlos Delgado sweepstakes.

Dont forget they still have Piazza, Cliff Floyd, Mike Cameron, Kaz Matsui and blue chip 3rd baseman David Wright.

They said that there are 3 other teams showing interest in Delgado but that he was to have a second meeting with them tomorrow in Puerto Rico. The Mets already look good on paper with Pedro and Beltran coming to the Big Apple and Delgado would certainly make them look much better. I think the Mets finally got some money freed up after that Mo Vaughn debacle.

I'm not sure who the other 3 teams are that are after Delgado. My Phillies announced a big signing today, 36 year old Jose Offerman. Boy, I'm excited. He probably wont even make the team. :yawn:

Any thoughts on the 2005 Mets?

Maybe they finally got jealous of the other team in town...

Carlos Delgado will meet with the New York Mets for a second time.

Delgado will get together with Mets executives on Thursday in Puerto Rico, according to his agent, David Sloane. Delgado and Sloane are to meet the Texas Rangers front office on Friday.

"We hope that these meetings, along with my discussion yesterday with the Florida Marlins will make it possible to conclude the negotiations for Carlos in the near future," Sloane said in an e-mail Wednesday.

Mets executives met with Delgado in Puerto Rico last Thursday, but Sloane was not present at that session.

Baltimore also is among the four teams trying to sign the first baseman.

Steinbrenner does not always make the smartest moves, but Ming thinks he's a friggin' Einstein compared to some of the money being shelled out (thrown out the window) by the Mets. How many years did they sign Pedro Martinez for? Ming thinks Pedro will be about 58 in the last year of that contract.

Ming wonders if they can lure Mo Vaughn back out of retirement for less than $10M/year. Give Ming a break.
