  1. Leon and Draft Picks shouldn't take up more then 7 million or so in 2009 Cap Space, considering that most deals are backloaded in general. There's enough room to take care of TJ if they so chose, without really making any cutbacks elsewhere.
  2. I love how everybody is saying his 2008 season was inflated because of the Offensive Line, but nobody is willing to admit that his 2007 season was deflated because of the Offensive Line as well. He didn't slack off or anything in 2007, the only difference between the two seasons was the 5 men in front of him. As for his contract situation, nobody can sit here and tell me that him making 900K in Real Money next season is fair market value for him. I say quietly restructure his deal and give him a portion of that 2010 money next season before bridges get burned, but don't extend his deal, we really need TJ for next season.
  3. Ha, tools like ECURB getting himself all worked up because of some good natured ribbing.
  4. Thing is, the reason people are usually scared of the low start total in a QB usually means the QB is a very raw talent. But in this specific case, Sanchez is probably the most polished of the 3 major QB prospects.
  5. Yeah, that was an amazing game that really got taken over by the Mets on both sides. Wright had the walk-off and the nice play at the plate early on, Beltran robbed a Home Run, Delgado hit a Home Run, Putz looked completely filthy, that game got me pumped up for this season
  6. Pretty much says it all right there... Waiting outside the ballpark overnight is an extinct art (Or at least, it should be).
  7. Backup O-Lineman are usually mid rounders, not 2nd rounders. I also think the Jets are more comfortable with Turner and Hunter then you'd think, they used them a ton last year with all the tackle eligible formations. The reason you'd consider DL is because Kenyon Coleman is average so there's room for a draft pick to step up into his starting gig, and NT is the most important position on the field defensively, so that might be the only position where it'd make sense to invest so heavily in a backup. I think CB will also get more serious consideration then most think since Sheppard might be essentially on a 1 year deal.
  8. The goal isn't to create one hole in order to fill another. I wouldn't. I'd sooner give up an '09 First and an '10 First.
  9. If only they showed the dozens of plays where he completely missed his target, the couple dozen terrible decisions he made with the football, the plays where it took him way too long to make a decision with the football which would have been a sack in the NFL. Lets just say, there's a reason they call it "Highlights", because it only gives you one part of the story (The good). The rest of the story with Josh Freeman is cringe inducing.
  10. Buffalo fans going crazy for Jay Cutler?....that's nice, there's about 28 other franchises doing the same. Doesn't mean anything is going to happen there.
  11. http://www.dailystab.com/alex-rodriguez-details-magazine-april-2009/ Talk about bad timing....
  12. Unfortunately, the only situation where it makes sense to fill future holes is when you don't have any current holes, and you certainly can't say that about the Jets. Maybe we take a RB in the 3rd or 4th round, but that's about it.
  13. ....and there's also dozens of quarterbacks who learned on the job and ended up better for it. Eli Manning was pretty awful as a young QB as well, among a couple dozen others. Point is, we won't truly know what we have in Clemens until we let him play. Granted, if you can get a Jay Cutler you go for it, I just don't think it's likely. Even if Denver somehow goes bat**** insane and makes him available, there are teams with much better packages to potentially offer (Like Detroit).
  14. I'm not sure I'd even put Josh Freeman in the Top 5 Quarterbacks in this class. To many people looking at size and arm strength and ignoring everything else that makes someone a QB.
  15. What SMC said, Matt Jones is going to be facing a lengthy suspension. Nevermind, I'm not sure I'd really want someone with his rap sheet in the Jets clubhouse anyways.
  16. I don't know, I just think they should have put seats in there. Empty silver benches on top of concrete just looks unfinished. Not to mention benches are very little-leagueish in my opinion. This is the Pros I think people who are paying for those seats have the right to have a back to their seat. lol
  17. Yeah, nowadays having the #1 pick is more of a curse then a blessing because of the obscene contract that comes with it. Add in the lack of a prospect truly worth spending the #1 overall pick on, and it's a tough sell IMO. Now if you said the #10 pick, that would be a more interesting debate. A much more reasonable contract and you could get a legit player with it.
  18. Did you seriously just say that? That's like saying that the Yankees lineup is weak without A-Rod, Teixeira, Posada, Jeter, and Cano. That's a pretty significant OF class right there. Ordonez has a vesting option, essentially as long as he stays healthy he's getting that option. I'm taking a guess here, but the Sox are likely hoping to use the recession to their advantage. In a market where Burrell got 2/16, Dunn got 2/20, and Abreu got 1/5, the Sox probably don't want to be giving out 15 million a year to Jason Bay, but that's what Bay expects to get paid (And understandably so).
  19. He clearly wasn't healthy when he was throwing, so it's no surprise to me, hopefully it's not something that'll keep him out long-term and he can be back sooner rather then later. I hate to go there, but Livan hasn't been awful so far. I personally prefer Niese but they want him to get more developmental time it seems.
  20. I really don't like the benches in the Outfield Bleachers, looks unfinished from a distance. In games that arent sellouts that's not going to look so good.
  21. Try and trade down, but if not I'm taking Darrius Heyward-Bey and not thinking twice about it. It's a high risk pick, but the potential rewards are outstanding and worth gambling on.
  22. Don't mess with Davey. I agree Peavy shouldn't have been allowed to struggle out there for so long, but is there any doubt that Davey was being undermined by the MLB teams? If Peavy sucks, you should be able to tell him to throw his next 50 pitches in the bullpen instead of in the game.
  23. Not to mention, ERFA is not really a Free Agent at all.
