That may be true, but it's not exactly what I was trying to say. To say it another way, I'm guessing the Mets have lost a bigger share of their total output this year than the Dodgers or Cardinals did last year, even if the salary or value lost isn't as great. It's really a comment on how the team is constructed. For the past few years, its seems like there have been precious few average players on the Mets.

"The Dodgers and Cards lost more in terms of salary and value." I believe that. But it seems the Mets' injuries have left them with less. Some days it seems like they're running out near-replacement-level players at almost every position, with Castillo being the notable exception.

Not even on the base paths? I find it tough to believe the "comfort tradeoff" doesn't work out in favor of wearing a cup when the alternative is potentially getting an infielder's spikes in your junk.

Brian Roberts looks "almost done"? He's posting a 16.9 VORP, which puts him 0.1 points away from being in the top 5 second basemen in the AL. And he's playing pretty average defense. That's not a superstar, but it's a long, long way from being "almost done" if he can sustain it for another couple of years.

Anyone can search Twitter and see the "don't we know Brad Arnsberg by the trail of dead" line came from Keith Law. Why not just give him credit for the observation?

Thanks for the reply. I have a ton of respect for both of you, so I'm enormously relieved there's no beef between you. Though I've frequently said online baseball writing needs more battle raps...

Kevin, Keith Law said in one of his chats a couple of weeks ago that you made up the quote about Lars Anderson being "the most overrated prospect in baseball." Here's link: http://espn.go.com/sportsnation/chat/_/id/27034/mlb-insider-keith-law. Any response?

Driven by morbid curiosity, I googled around to see just how gruesome death from EPO overuse is. Turns out the cyclist\'s name is Pantani, not Pantoni, and he died after OD\'ing on cocaine, according to an article I found in The Observer (http://bit.ly/4YAU). Sorry to nitpick, but I thought I\'d mention it for the sake of accuracy.
