    If this team tanks like last year, I may have to jump off a bridge. And I was planning on saving $150 on my Extra Innings subscription too. Ah well, easy come easy go. I'll spend the money to (hopefully not) see yet another Met team underachieve!

    It's Amazin'

    The Mets' projected lineup and starting rotation for the 2003 season:

    Roger Cedeno, LF
    Roberto Alomar, 2B
    Cliff Floyd, RF
    Mike Piazza, C
    Mo Vaughn, 1B
    Norihiro Nakamura, 3B
    Timo Perez, CF
    Russ Johnson, SS

    Tom Glavine, LHP
    Al Leiter, LHP
    Pedro Astacio, RHP
    Steve Trachsel, RHP
    John Thomson, RHP

    Ah, well. The Red Sox thank the Mets for the draft pick and for paying Mo Vaughn's salary (Boston's offer wasn't that far from California's a few years back. There's a bullet dodged).

    Just glad he didn't go to the Yankees or Orioles.

    It was announced that Nakamura will stay in Japan rather than join the Mets.

    They had that chance last season, but Steinbrenner grew impatient.[​IMG]

    As a Yankee fan, I'm glad the Sox weren't able to hold onto him. I saw this coming last year, but held my breath.

    Phew.
