    Baseball Told the Right Way
    In-depth Baseball analysis on various topics regarding the sport we all love!

      Will the Mets be good in 2005?
    One quick note, Kris Benson has re-signed with the Mets.

    The deal is for 3 years at $22.5M. Seems like a decent deal, market rate for a pitcher of his talent. The Mets also have a chance to have a bargain on their hands if Benson can develop into the pitcher he looked like he was about to develop into before Tommy John surgery in 2000.

    It's a good deal for the Mets.

    And now Met fans, turn away.

    The problem with it is the Mets could have done this, and not given up Justin Huber and Matt Peterson to do it. Here's what I said at the trading deadline,
    All I know is that the Mets just pawned off their #2 & #3 prospects for two months of Benson. Lets say he turns into a 3.50 ERA type pitcher, is it even worth that? The Mets obviously want to re-sign Benson after the year is out. Then why give up the prospects? Why not just wait until he is a free agent and go after him heavily? Then, the worst case is that you miss out on Benson and have to settle for someone like Matt Morris
    Here's another fearless prediction. Matt Morris will sign for less money than Benson. I'm also saying its about a 50/50 shot that (after adjusting for home park) Matt Morris has a better year than Kris Benson.

    Now I like Benson a lot more than Morris, but there is no way in heaven Kris Benson was worth two very good prospects just for the first crack at signing him.

    But that's not important. The Mets will be better next year. Blah, blah, blah. The Mets will sign Sammy Sosa and Stan Musial and Oil Can Boyd, and they will be better. Blah, blah, blah.

    Does anyone in their right mind think for one second that this team has their priorities in line to become a contender? Does anyone really think that the Mets ownership has a single collective head screwed on straight?

    Oh, wait, I did.

    My bad. I'll never go against my better judgement again. Good signing though. But take it with a grain of salt.
