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."
