Why aren't Mets persuing Alex Rios?

So he's a bit overpaid, but the Mets can afford it. He's having a below average year. Otherwise he's a solid player with speed, and plays great defense. At least better than average. Could be filling in in CF right now.

 

It might not cost them much since it seems the Blue Jays are anxious to be rid of his salary.

his contract is as foreboding as Zito-

 

Rios gets $5.9 million in 2009, $9.7 million in 2010, $12 million each in 2011 and 2012 and $12.5 million apiece in 2013 and 2014.

 

toronto will have to eat some of that to move him. his decline this year suggests other things too.

The Wilpons feel that Bernie Madoff would be a much cheaper and more cost effective option in RF in 2010

He's a good ball player, blu, and the Mets could have eaten his salary easy. Good defense with an off year hitting.

$9.7 million in 2010, $12 million each in 2011 and 2012 and $12.5 million apiece in 2013 and 2014.

he better be better than "good"

 

you just want to keep the mets down because they got the better and less expensive stadium. :P

The only thing better about the Mets stadium is the neighborhood, and I'm not even sure about that anymore. You need a fungo bat the hit one out.
