    Mets get Delgado

    Just heard on WEEI- for Petit and Jacobs

    Marlins will send cash to the Mets

    Probably they don't go after Manny now also

    Wow interesting. I say that is a good deal for the Mets. I have heard mixed things about Petit.

    A GREAT move by the Mets. They're making their move early. I give Minaya credit.

    It looks great on paper...the Mets have that network starting up, they needed another big bat...Mike Jacobs looked good last year....let's see how it works out on the field for them. Also Delgado is scheduled to make a ton of money for the next few years, those Mets are really starting to climb the payroll ladder!

    It is certainly what they needed, and if they get Wagner they will be in GREAT shape.

    This way they get to hold on to Milledge and not trade him for Manny.

    At least they didn't have to give up Milledge.

    They're losing Piazza's salary this year, so maybe not that big a jump in payroll.

    Maybe they can still get Manny and Wagner- they would be hard to beat with all that talent

    I think they are also looking to dump Cameron's contract, so they'll certainly have enough money to throw at Wagner, and even Manny

    Cameron has already been moved for Xavier Nady.

    I hope he doesn't get sucked into the Mets black hole of suckage that happens to some good players when they go there....

    Boy, 'Mets' and 'suck' seem to always work well in a sentence together....

    Wasn't there some concern with Delgado's ability to play in a big market?
    Don't look down here.

    What about that kid they had playing the outfield last year when Cameron was hurt. He was pretty good for a while, they dont want him in the OF this year?

    The contract is disgustingly backloaded (4, 13.5, 14.5, 16) with a club otion $12 mil buyout for the 5th year, or a $4 mil buyout. The 5th year becomes guaranteed at $16 mil if Delgado does well enough in post season or regular season MVP voting.

    The $7 mil the Mets received certainly helps to offset that just a bit.

    I like the move for them, especially with their new cable channel coming (I think) down the road.

    Great deal for the Mets. Petit is widely believed to have stats in excess of his stuff. His command is excellent, but he doesn't have any pitch that is exceptional- or even comfortably above average. He should be a decent major league pitcher, but the Mets are not losing a future ace.

    Marlins are really unloading here. Kind of makes them look silly for not dealing Burnett last year, no?

    I think it was Victor Diaz, I guess he'll be in the mix, but I'm not really sure.

    They don't like his defense, and don't believe he'll ever amount to a productive enough corner OF.

    Excellent deal for the Mets. The get some much needed production out of the 1B slot and add protection for Wright and Beltran.

    And the didn't have to give up Milledge. Good job.

    Excellent - this is like us doing a DeSalvo+Shelley Duncan for Delgado deal. I'd have done that.

    Petit is MUCH more valuable trading chip than DeSalvo.

    Petit is a guy who is known as a "system jewel" around the majors, regardless of what his true talents are.
