Gary Matthews Jr? WTF?

Who in their right mind thought acquiring him would be a good idea?

Insurance for Beltran and it rids them Castillo. Hudson? This is more a head scratcher for the Halos...

The Angels assuming 20 F'ing million of the remaining 23 for GMJ for Castillo? :-?

Morales, Kendrick/Izturis, Aybar, Wood

Good to see the Mets starting their season collapse in the preseason, saves a lot of time.

GMJ had the 4th worst UZR/150 of all OFers with 700+ innings in 2009.

Bottom 10:

Brad Hawpe -25.9
Delmon Young -25.6
Carlos Quentin -25.4
Gary Matthews Jr. -24.6
Jermaine Dye -24.5
Michael Cuddyer -21.1
Dexter Fowler -20.3
Vernon Wells -18.7
Jacoby Ellsbury -18.3
Andre Ethier -17.7

Angel Pagan (who the Mets should use instead of GMJ) 11.9. Career = 8.0

Any chance that they’re going to do something even dumber, like trade Beltran as “punishment” for him having surgery???
