    What Wayne Has Done For Us Lately

    Wayne's been getting a lot of criticizm lately, but I think most of it is undeserved. The Keans/Lopez deal hasn't panned out--in fact, he'd look like a genius if not for that trade--but we've given up pretty much nothing for the rest of these guys, and they've been pretty productive for us.

    I understand your point but I wouldn't label Bray, Cormier, Franklin, Majewski, or Clayton "pretty productive". I'd label most of them as "pretty bad".

    To be fair to the original poster, I think he meant that the players other than those involved in "the deal" have been pretty productive...which, of course, still doesn't excuse Cormier and Franklin from that "pretty bad" list.

    Every GM for every team is going to have his share of turkeys - taking a risk is a part of that job, and if they begin shying from risks, they become Dan0.
    For every Dave Williams with the Mets, there is a Jose Lima waiting in the wings.

    Actually, I was wondering why Arroyo, Ross, and Phillips weren't on the list either?
    Who's on first?

    These are all players he traded for in the past two months. And yeah, when I said "pretty productive", I meant the players that weren't involved with the Lopez/Kearns deal. And in regards to Cormier and Franklin, if a 4-3 record with a 4.60 ERA is "pretty bad", then they need to change the definition of "average" in the dictionary.

    Maybe it's not pretty bad it's certainly not "pretty productive".

    They both have WHIPs approaching 2.00, and Franklin has more walks than Ks. Neither has gotten the job done. It's like Esteban Yan, who pitched poorly despite his 3.60 ERA in Cincinnati.

    Look at it this way, you only have to hit 3 out of 10 to be a good offensive player, so his "batting average" certainly isn't near the Mendoza Line.

    I'm sorry--I'm not trying to snap at anyone. What I'm trying to say is, overall, other than the Lopez/Kearns trade, we've gotten a lot of production considering how much we've had to give up for it.
