There’s no evidence to suggest it will be a success.

Ahhh, nothing like working for about a season and a half and getting paid 42 million. Are you sure you don’t want another extension Manram?

Not quite sure how exactly the Rays plan on extending Crawford AND getting their payroll back below $60M, even with Pena gone next season.

Or they might just want to see how much he wants so they can tell the Rays fans they tried. Make no mistake, Rays fans will cry and cry about him leaving and they will claim that they will boycott. Its what they always do here. Also, under 60 million is a little bit of a sham unless they are planning to buy out the lease.

They won’t. He’ll be gone before season’s end & then it’s Desmond Jennings time.

Duaner Sanchez was done BEFORE he got into the accident. His stuff lost its bite and he went from being completely lights out to giving up a run almost every time he came out.

Very good point, but Mets also never really addressed bullpen problem after they traded him. The whole “gonna trust our guys” mantra blew up in their faces as Aaron Heilman, Scott Schoeneweis, etc., blew lead after lead and game after game. Even supposedly elite closer Billy Wagner could not be trusted, he blew his share too. Trusting these guys through ’07 and ’08 cost the Mets two post-season berths and likely two division titles. Only after ’08 did they really take it seriously.

Not to mention all the drugs Schoeneweis’s wife used.
