Life will never be the same. If only i was retiring.

1. I already ranted. but Bannister and Heilman look ready. MOST may get their wish if VZ is sent to the pen in the wake of the fact he has not gotten enuff spr innings. H/E, Venezuela is done therefore so is Vic.

2. Iriki is the swingman that Koo was supposed too be so he is locked in and doing fine. I'm willing to let everything else come together. But I already see Kepp, playing 3rd and 2nd and moving around. Ditto for Woodward. I doubt Valentin goes North.

J. damon is broken...ouch.

Valentin has guaranteed contract of 900K plus. I hope he doesn't go North but given the circumstances, it's highly likely he will.

One of my gripes against the WBC is that Zambrano has not pitched enough innings as a starter to get ready for this thing. Since Bannister pitched so little at AAA last season it wouldn't surprise me if he went down for a while unless a starter misses time.

I think Tol is right about Valentin -- who signed a major-league contract.

Valentin could go North but there is still a cut day for players with guaranteed contracts.

Maybe I'm just paranoid, but I can see Valentin being really awful and the Mets keeping him on the roster anyway. Then again, maybe he plays decent and it doesn't matter. I still think the Mets are more likely to leave a a vet like him on the bench and send down Diaz if Nady grabs the RF job.
