So Randy Wolf is now a Milwaukee Brewer. They agreed to a three year deal worth $29 million.
The Mets could not do that? Seriously? I’m a little disgusted and vexed right now. I’m not even sure how I can sit here and blog.
I know we would all prefer John Lackey. Still, Wolf would have made a nice addition to the rotation considering we have three crazies with Mike Pelfrey, Oliver Perez, and John Maine.
Did I mention he is a left handed pitcher? I mean, come on now. I hate the fact we have Perez. I would have taken Wolf over Perez last year.
Supposedly the Mets offered Wolf two years, but Wolf wanted three. I think I would have been inclined to give him the three years if I felt Lackey is way out of reach.
I will say this. Omar Minaya is really trying to be careful right now. He does not want to overpay or overextend potential players.
Oh well! What are you going to do?
