That's great news snakeyes. At least your getting players. My team, the Oakland Athletics,are giving them away. Fortunately Steinbrenner didn't get his hands on this one.

But he did get his hands on the "big unit".

It's so nice to hear it was his life long dream to play for the Mets. These guys kill me. His life long dream was to make $17 million a year playing baseball for WHOEVER Scott Boras could get to pay that much.

Don't get me wrong he is a very good player, but $17 million a year????

I would much rather hear these guys say, "they gave me the most money" and not a bunch of BS. A-Rod did the same thing in taking the most money and look what happened. I'm surprised that the Mets offered a 7 year deal for that much money. You would think by now teams would have learned. If for some reason Beltran does not work out with the Mets, who will take him? Oh, that's right Georgie and the Yanks.

its like the mets go from one extreme to the next. *flash to fred wilpons office* well we tried to spend a lot of money on out of shaped end of their career under acheivers that did not work. then we tried going younger and and spending no money and that didnt work. what should we do next jeff. jeff says i think we should hire omar minaya and mix both ideas spend a ton of money on younger players and end of their career players. then we will trade for end of their career expensive players with declining numbers steroid alegations who cant get along with the freindliest manager in baseball (sammy sosa for those who dont know) oh boy now we are rollin'

i should have put a smily face, it was a joke.. but, for those who want to buy a $50 ticket to the most boring 4 hours in sports, while paying $12 bucks for a dawg and a beer, then go right ahead.

i think baseball and basketball players are in a race to see who can win the prize for the most spoiled, over paid athletes on the planet. and because of their attitude, and the lack of the respective leagues to do anything to stop it, i choose not to watch or support those sports.

but, to each their own.. and i hope your ticket prices dont go up too much..

BigJohn, although I agree that baseball games can be tough to watch, I still love it. I think many baseball, basketball and football players are overpaid and show a lack of respect for their games.

I hate watching football player make a tackle after a 6 yard gain and celebrate like they just saved the game and won the Super Bowl. It's so much "me, me, me". Are there any bigger jerks in pro sports than Randy Moss and Terrell Owens? How about Michael Vick getting over a $30 million signing bonus!

Baseball and baseketball players are not immune to this critisism. I don't watch hockey much, so I'll leave them out of this.
