I like the move. At least we have one good hitting outfielder now.

The NL East is really stacking up on players this year.

I hope Floyd doesn't mind the smell of marijuana!

Gammons reports that he signed for 4 years at 26 million.

I'm a little surprised that he came so cheaply. I think he could have gotten more in arbitration probably.

Now they have to find a taker for Cedeno or Burnitz.

Signing Glavine and Floyd, and getting rid of Ordonez... it's like a dream come true.

And I'm still expecting the Mets to sign Japanese power hitting 3B Norihiro Nakamura.

Nakamura led the Pacific League in RBI the past two seasons, hitting 46 homers in 2001 and 42 in 2002, with Kintetsu. .

Stop the insanity. I've been saying for a few years now that the Mets needed to dismantle and rebuild, and I wasn't the least bit scared of the jumbled mess they formed for last season ... but damn. Can't we get Floyd out of the NL East? That guy owns us. And as much as I'm looking forward to booing him, I'm not looking forward to facing Glavine on the mound.

I've hated Valentine for years, and it looks like all these new signees weren't too fond of him either. Now that he's gone, the Mets are really getting some free agent action. I hope spending all this money backfires on them, but this year's signees are a lot more stable IMO than last year's.
