Daily News on Manny
I wish I had written this.  It sums up all the frustration of all the fans. From Bill Price in the Daily News:
"In years past, the Mets would've told everyone they were interested in Manny, only to have some other team eventually sign him. It's nice that can't happen this year. Thanks for letting us down easy.

I can now focus on Alex Cora, Freddy Garcia and the rest of the other key offseason acquisitions the Mets have made. I can now start accepting this Fernando Tatis/Daniel Murphy platoon in left and three more years of Luis Castillo at second.

I figure since it's only January, I'm better prepared for the late-season collapse. That is, of course, if this team actually has a lead in the division late in the season. The more this offseason drags on, the more I doubt that will be the case

As for Manny, I promise this is the last time I will mention him on this blog until the day he signs with the Yankees."
Why do I have a feeling he's right about the Yankees?   I think the only thing that would stop them is if they fear that this signing would be the straw on the camel's back that gets MLB talking about a salary cap.
Bill's full piece is at the link below.
