    Choo will either be a Met or a Cub next year.

    I think Choo will be a Yankee, just a gut feeling.

    Votto turned 30 twenty days ago. He's not thirty something.

    I was scratching my head over how he tied the performance of Votto and Phillips together.

    I am probably being too hopeful, but I think that Choo is still in the realm of possibility.

    Maybe make a trade or two to get some cash to afford him or give him a backloaded contract since we have a lot of money tied up in the next few years with Broxton, Marshall, and Chapman.

    Any ideas what Latos, Bailey, Leake, LeCure, and Simon might command? I am trying to go a quick assessment of what next year's payroll might look like

    If we didn't sign Ludwick or Broxton, there could be a possibility. Man, broxton was the worst signing of the last 5 years...

    As it turns out, the Mets will have a top-10 draft pick -- meaning they will not need to forfeit their first-round selection if they sign a premium free agent such as Shin-Soo Choo.

    Bidding for Shin-Soo Choo figures to exceed the Mets' appetite.

    Still, a team insider said, with the exception of Choo, the Mets do not intend to pursue those types of free agents anyway (think outfielders Jacoby Ellsbury and Curtis Granderson). So the protected/unprotected issue was wasted energy to debate.

    The Mets, according to an insider, also do not intend to offer more than a Michael Bourn-type contract for Choo, which means four guaranteed years. Their reasoning: Choo is not an exceptional fielder. And his power potential is not equivalent to outfielders who have received megadeals, such as Jayson Werth (seven years, $126 million in December 2010).

    So if Scott Boras can do better -- and the bet is he can, especially with Hunter Pence getting five years and $90 million to stay with the San Francisco Giants -- Choo likely is headed elsewhere.

    Royals won't spend the money
    If it isn;t the Reds, the Yanks or Rangers would be okay by me - AL and first round pick but I'm betting the Cubs and Mariners really push for him, or the Phillies trying to get back in things. None of them lose a first rounder which makes the deal better for them.
