    The Mets always do this and they never get any better.

    No way are the Mets after Ellsbury--softy says he is aint worth diddly and softy is the expert on all players and teams.  Just ask him.

    They do, but I think StL outbids them for Drew.

    Mets will be after Ellsbury, among a few other NL teams that include the Giants. I find it less likely that an AL GM falls for the Ellsbury big contract scam. They are familiar with him and his career OPS and work attendance history and age. Better fit in NL rules.

     

    Maybe they might be interested in a trade for the 13MIL  D H  / FIRST BASEMAN !!

    They are looking for a toilet cleaner too, but you'd never be able to meet the standard.

    would be interesting, then both Drews will have played for St Loo. and Boston

    That was going to be my next question.

     

    Ellsbury isn't either. 

     

    If the Mets are so serious about a franchise player they need to hire some decent scouts and draft one. No team is stupid enough to send them one, it's way too early fro Santa Claus to visit.

      NL GM's don't know Jacoby's "career OPS and work attendance history and age"?  In that case,  Boston should definitely re-sign Ellsbury.  If it doesn't work out, Ben can tell the NL GM's that Jacoby is 25, has never missed a game and owns a career OPS of 1.500. That should net quite a haul.

    I thought was pretty funny as well, but I had picked off enough low-hanging fruit.  I love the implication that the NL GMs don't read the same analyses as the AL GMs, don't employ scouts, and don't know who plays in the AL.

    Ellsbury's injury history makes him too risky to build a team around.  But hey, that's the Mets for ya.  Wouldn't suprise me one bit.  The NYC teams have the single greatest inherent advantage over any other market and yet both teams continue to be the laughing stock in all of baseball.

    Softcasm is back.  It's a strange form of sarcasm that only Softlaw himself actually uses.

    Ells going to the Mets makes a lot of sense.

    They just got rid of Jason Bay - Ells would be a big risk for them.  But I'd expect nothing less from the Mets to offer him 7/142..........

    It's hard to know which GM will overpay for Jacoby, but I'm sure theres at least one out there that will gamble he stays healthy and stays consistent.

    soft·casm  (softkzm)

    n. 1.  An unfunny form of alleged wit that is marked by the use of utterly transparent language and while intended to make its victim the butt of contempt or ridicule it simply exposes the user as a fool.
