    I voted sign a starter cuz i prefer Mulder simply because he doesnt cost you players. The obv. problem there is he won't be ready for opening day. Anyway you look at it starting pitching must be the priority. Either Mulder or Weaver via FA (and i am scared of Weaver) or Colon, Lee, Westbrook, Dontrelle, Harden, or Blanton via trade. Another guy I wouldn't mind taking a flyer on would be John Patterson he has very good stuff, but major injury problems. I hear however Bowden's asking price is WAY high though.

    At this point, id wait til the trade deadline and see where we are. If Clemens would consider Shea, id look at him.

    I don't want to overpay for a jason jennings type player, and watch pelfrey/edge/heilman be the cornerstone of some other team.

    good point but i heard mulder was down 2 -- 3 finalists none of which included us!

    My belief is don't panic. Guy i wanted was suppan n then make a run a drunken willis his market didn't go up w/ those extra drinks.

    don't want weaver he hasn't pitched well in ny b/4

    colon isn't bad don't want 2 overpay for one of oaklands decent starters...beane always makes good deals!

    Pursue the best available FA bullpen guys.

    Trade for more bullpen depth.

    Give Pelfry, Main, Humber and Soler (remember him?) a chance to prove themselves.

    Go with what you have... the market is fruit loops right now. It's tech boom in 1999 crazy. Don't get into that.

    During the off-season, teams only want your blue chip prospects. During the middle of the season, maybe one of your mid-level prospects can impress a GM and you can sell him above his value (a la Petit).

    I want another innings either right now, but there is no value in the pro market right now. In a year or two when these teams are hamstrung by their stupid deals, the Mets will be free to make any move they want.

    I give credit to the Yankees for spending wisely, too.

    By saying the Marlins will lose him anyway next year, are you implying that they would take Milledge for Dontrelle? Yes, they will lose him anyways, but there will be at least 10 other teams wanting him and the Marlins will take the best package. No way the Mets would get him for just Milledge.

    I wouldn't take that cheap shot clemons if u paid me. If the mets had the balls they would hav beamed him n kicked his ass when he hit Piazza.

    Dontrell talks w/ start w/ milledge n pelfrey n work from there w/ any hope.

    Milledge's stock went down from last year. No way the marlins do a one for one swap.

    Anyways I think Dontrelle might have two years left of arbritration.
