Kazmir Part 2

Yep, I said it.. This WILL be another horrible trade in mets history. Today The Mets traded OF Lastings Milledge to the Nationals for OF Ryan Church and C Brian Schneider. In my opinion, this is a very bad trade. By giving up a stud prospect for two average major leaguers won't win you a world series championship unless either Church or Schneider have a breakout season next year. Capitol Punishment, a Nationals blog, ( has a very good article on the trade.. As quoted by Capitol Punishment...

"Milledge? This is a guy who a season or two as an untouchable, a solid power bat who got a bad rep from the pyschotic NY press because 1) he has dreadlocks and 2) he released a rap album. Other than a minor thing (literally!) while he was in high school, he's been a decent citizen, one who's unfairly maligned because he doesn't fit the imagine.What he is, is is every bit as good as Ryan Church offensively RIGHT NOW, plus he's 6 years younger (will be 23) and he's got a boatload of potential!"

This sucks... Omar better not trade Gomez or F. Martinez now.. he might get assinated by some crazy NY fans.
