    I don't know that's why I'm not GM. We've seen teams get scared and make funny deals to try and put them over the top. When you have rival teams possibly going after the same player it could only help. Beltran in the playoffs could absolutely be a huge difference maker. You can make an easy argument that a bat is more of a difference maker than a SP. Lee could only affect 2 games in a series while a bat plays everyday. As for the smaller market teams I don't think they are really in the hunt but it still creates an illusion that a large number of teams are after him. We'll see soon though what he brings back.
    I disagree. Any two games Lee is on the mound makes more of a difference than a player like Beltran. Give me Lee for 2 starts any day over 20 ABs from someone of the caliber of Beltran.

    Lee has a chance to make that game his. Who knows what type of situation a hitter will come up in.

      He was younger but what look at what Beltran did for the Astros in 2004. A hitter can make a huge difference. If Beltran is batting 6th in that Red Sox lineup he'll have plenty of opportunites to drive people in.

        Well if any team is expecting that from Beltran, their GM should be shot. That was a once in a lifetime playoffs. Which got you stuck with the contract you guys signed him to. That is such an extreme you have to throw it out the window.

          The Astros traded away Dotel and John Buck for Beltran, not exactly a ransom.

          • I didn't say he would repeat that but it's an example of a hitter can make a huge difference. On Boston that lineup would not have an easy out if they got him. As for the Beltran contract with the Mets it was still 100% worth it even with the last 2 injury plagued years.

              And the Mets traded Kazmir for Zambrano. You never know what's going to happen. There are still idiots all over MLB front office's. I wouldn't put it by Sabean to do something dumb as always.

                Using your own franchise's past idiocy to justify being able to put one over on another team. Haha. I like it.

                • That's certainly not the only dumb deadline deal. Teams panic and then anything can happen. We're going to find out soon enough.

                              The Brian Sabean sig is no more. I disagreed with you on so many levels. And then you went out and built a dynasty. I am lame.
