  1. The Mets butchered this situation, there really is no other way to put it. 2 high round draft picks are easily better than Carter, Lora, and the ~$3M salary relief they got.

    Obviously the team's thinking was to save cash and not risk offering him arbitration since he might accept it and return for 1 year as a very very expensive setup man, but I personally never believed Wagner would accept it. He made it pretty clear he wants to a closer somewhere, and look what happened.

      Yup I agree. I will admit it, I really didn't see this coming and didn't realize this until the trade. But hey, I don't get paid the big bucks to realize this upfront, Omar Minaya does and he most certainly missed the boat on this one!!!
