HOW MUCH IS THAT MATSUI IN THE WINDOW? It�s no secret that the Mets would love to find a sucker�err.. trading partner that would take Kazuo Matsui off their hands. Let�s face it; we knew from his first season here in 2004 that the Mets signed the wrong Matsui. What makes it worse is the bill of goods the Skill Sets sold the fans about his defense and his ability to hit and hit for power and his base stealing prowess. From day 1 when he was corralling groundballs like he was chasing chickens, to the fact that he is not the �iron man� he was made out to be, this has been an unmitigated disaster, not just for the Mets but for KazMat as well. So what does Omar do to fix this? I don�t buy this notion that the Mets won�t sign Grudzielanek until they rid themselves of Matsui and his contract and I think Omar can move Matsui. Maybe not with all that salary but he can make deal if the Mets eat maybe $3mil. What�s Freddy Skill Sets going to say NO? It was his son Bruce who pushed the Mets to sign KazMat. Freddy Skill Sets can just take the money out of Brucey Skill Sets inheritance? http://www.nydailynews.com/sports/baseball/mets/story/372111p-316526c.html (TO POST A COMMENT PLEASE CLICK ON THE TIME OF THIS POSTING) < |
