"I'M GOING OFF OF THE RAILS OF A CRAZY TRAIN" From today's NY Daily http://www.nydailynews.com/sports/baseball/mets/story/374744p-318361c.html {Free-agent reliever Julian Tavarez could command a four-year contract, and industry scuttlebutt is the Mets won't hesitate to make that commitment. "The market for these guys is three or four years," agent Scott Boras said. "I don't think there's any question. All the teams that are interested are in that range." A Mets insider said the team has not yet made a four-year offer. } A four year deal for "La Vida Loca"? Pass the crack pipe! I have no problem bringing Tavarez into the pen as a Tavarez, Heilman and Wagner late inning trioka is quite impressive. Plus I like the fact that Tavarez is one crazy bastard and is fearless on the mound. By the way doesn't Tavarez have an eriee resembalnce to the banjo player in Deliverence?http://www.dgarrick.com/banjos/images/DeliverenceBanjoPlayer.jpg http://mlb.stoo.com/images/inside/player/123118_Julian%20Tavarez.jpg If Omar can get Tavarez at 2yr/13.5 mil plus a third year option it would be a coup. Tavarez has and excelent sinker that drops like a lead weight and he does not give up the long all, so going after him is great move as long as the contract demands don't get stupid.
