Upton's numbers make me curious to say the least however, the big issue for me with Wright and even Longoria are the years of the contracts especially considering their health.  Also for a team like the Mets that are always in the news for having so-called financial concerns, 1 player getting this money makes me wonder if that is another example of downplaying your bottom line in order to get people to feel sorry for you.

I Don't Know Why In The Heck Broxton Gets That Contract, Something Smells Fishy...

I am shocked the Mets actually re-signed David and not keep Reyes. Although Tejada had a good year offensively and defensively at SS. But excited to since I know we won't be the NY version of the Marlins (low payroll, Class low-A talent on the field)

Broxton is just not worth 7 miilion a year!!
