    Mets lose out on Zito

    SF Giants sign him to seven-year, $126 million deal ..

    Thats crazy money and I don't think he is worth it..But with no salary cap in baseball does it really matter about how much these guys get?? No.

    Mets better have a plan B cause there pitching staff is not looking great...

    You can have an All-Star lineup but if you don't have pitching you don't have crap...

    Just the same, another junk pitcher the Mets didn't need and an albatross of a contract. Again the 200 innings would have been great but hopefully they pull off a trade for say Westbrook or someone else and we should be OK. We still have a surplus of young pitching albeit young but a surplus nonetheless. and worst case scenario Steve Trachsel is still available.

    7 years for a pitcher is crazy then on top of that you give him 18 million a year that is insane.

    I wanted Zito on the Mets but at that price he is not worth it, that would inhibit them to get other players in the future.

    owners must be cooking the books

    i just can't believe a guy that throws in the mid 80's can be worth 18mil a yr for 7-8 yrs. I just see him as a very good #2 or #3 pitcher on a championship caliber team. How obvious is it that baseball franchises are hiding profits - no other way to explain these crazy contracts.

    Only thing I have to say is that the roster we go into the season with won't be the roster we finish the season with.

    And I'm sure Omar has a contingency plan.

    And We are probably still the class of the NL, even without Zito.

    That's entirely too much money for a pitcher that's only been slightly above average the past 3 years with his 112 ERA+.

    And I'm sure Omar has a contingency plan. Agree because I believe in Omar's compitency, but I hope you're right.

    And we are probably still the class of the NL, even without Zito. Have to agree again since our pitching staff wasn't great last season either and we were within 1 game of the World Series but man that would be asking for a lot again to do what we did with our pitching staff.
    I really wanted a #1 starter, and in the NL, with our lineup, Zito would have been one hell of a #1 starter.

    Ridiculous contract!
    They will regret it in about 36 months, and those 36 months will NOT include a playoff appearance.

    Iam not mad. Remember he is not an ace. He was the best pitcher in a weak FA market.

    That is WAYYY to much money for him.
    Half of that is closer to what he is worth.
    He will do good in the NL.

    I would much rather the Mets lose Zito than sign him to the insane contract the Giants gave him. He's good, but not that good.

    Look for Pelfrey in the rotation this coming year.
