Viagra prescription label
Viagra prescription label You know who I feel bad for in this whole Michael Bourn saga? The young man the Mets draft with the 11th pick in the entry draft because if he doesn’t turn into the next coming of Willie Mays or Walter Johnson he will be scared for life.
Viagra prescription label So the Mets finally free up money to make not only a competitive offer but an offer that Bourn was eager to sign, viagra prescription label if the reports are accurate, viagra prescription label that Bourn’s first choice was the New York Mets. Viagra prescription label So a bit of a silver lining for Mets fans to embrace here that the Mets were in position to make an offer on a free agent and the free agent wanted to be a Met. Viagra prescription label The only thing it seems between Bourn flying around Citi Field as a Met or going elsewhere was that priceless 11th pick and Scott Boras doing his Scott Boras thing, viagra prescription label taking his clients best offer and trying to get an even better best offer. Viagra prescription label Remember his midnight phone call to Pee Wee Cashman when Carols Beltran was to become a Met where he all but begged Pee Wee to match the Mets offer. Viagra prescription label While it seems that the Mets and Bourn were just a signature away, viagra prescription label Boras came back with an offer from the Cleveland Indians that matched the Mets offer and went one better with a 5th year option based on goals reached in that 4th year . Viagra prescription label Did that scare off Sandy Alderson? Did it piss him off that maybe he was being played by Boras? Could be a little of both.
Viagra prescription label Who knew that not sucking enough in 2012 would hurt the Mets for 2013? Maybe going on a bit of tear after the 16-1 embarrassing loss to the Phillies wasn’t the best thing that could have happened late last season. The big question I have is why did it take the Mets this long to contest the clause in the CBA on compensation for the inability to sign a draft pick? When going over the CBA didn’t anyone, viagra prescription label not just the Mets but any team, viagra prescription label look at that clause and say, viagra prescription label “something is wrong here”. Viagra prescription label It’s ridiculous that the Pittsburgh Pirates get rewarded for incompetence and not doing their due diligence in know what it would take to sign RHP Mark Appel last season. Viagra prescription label I’m not taking the Mets and Sandy Alderson off the hook here either they totally dropped the ball on this, viagra prescription label even without the Bourn signing shouldn’t the Mets GM have been fighting to get to the 10th pick anyway since the Mets had the 10th worst record in baseball?
Viagra prescription label All through this Bourn saga, viagra prescription label I’ve wavered back and forth and now that it’s done and Bourn is not a Met because of this 11th pick and more importantly the slot money the Mets would lose. Viagra prescription label I’m pissed off that Alderson couldn’t finish the deal with Bourn/Boras.
Viagra prescription label That fact that Bourn, viagra prescription label if he signed with the Mets would have been the second best everyday player on the team, viagra prescription label he also would have added speed at the leadoff spot, viagra prescription label a bonafide top notch centerfielder and most important the message that the Mets are back in the baseball business. Viagra prescription label All of these factors in my opinion outweigh a draft pick and a couple of million dollars of slot money. Viagra prescription label Signing Bourn would have boosted the fan base moral and made the baseball establishment sit up and take notice.
Viagra prescription label Bourn to the Mets would have capped off a fantastic off season for Alderson. Viagra prescription label He signed David Wright to 8 year deal, viagra prescription label he dumped Jason Bay and he show his onions trading R.A. Viagra prescription label Dickey in turn making the Mets future look brighter. Viagra prescription label That’s what has me puzzled over not signing Bourn. Viagra prescription label Why not sign him and then go to the MLBPA and argue the stupidity of the compensation rule. Viagra prescription label If you have the balls to trade not only a reigning CY Young Award winner but also one of the most popular Mets players in recent history, viagra prescription label why lose your courage over a draft pick? Roll the fucking dice.
Viagra prescription label Alderson made a terrific offer to Bourn/Boras who in turn said I see your offer of 4 years and raise you a vesting option on a 5th. Viagra prescription label Alderson looked at his cards showing an 11th round pick on a player who odds are will never make an impact on the Mets, viagra prescription label and the slot money, viagra prescription label which I believe is more important to Alderson that the pick itself and said I’m out. Viagra prescription label That’s what has me mad as hell, viagra prescription label Alderson found a strange time to lose his nerve. Viagra prescription label He should have matched the Indians offer. Viagra prescription label He’d have been a hero today. Viagra prescription label I hope to hell he has another plan up his sleeve if not he should lay low and stop with the wise ass jokes , viagra prescription label I’m really not in the mood.
