As an antidote for the salt, I'd like to point out that Todd Pratt went 0 for 3 in Atlanta's win over Florida, while Mike Jacobs went 0 for 5 in the same game for the Marlins.
Even better, I would like to reprint my favorite take on the infamous Scott Kazmir trade, from an e-mail sent to Ryan McConnell at Always Amazin:
...please look at the positive that came from that deal. The Wilpon's got Omar to be the GM and now we have Pedro / Beltran / Delgado /and Wagner. Do you really think any of this would have happened if not for the fallout from the Kazmir deal?
I love this! Someone called into WFAN this morning with the same comment. Although, at face value, this may be the worst trade ever made by the Mets, it actually may the reason we're enjoying a renaissance now!
