    “Bengals have a legit D; Jets don’t”

    Fatty also says the Jets D stats are over-ratedbecause they are the #1 rushing offense which translates to longer O time of possession. But he never pointed out that the Jets break even in TOP for the year and that having Sanchez as QB translates to less first downs.

    Fatty also never brought up the fact that the Jets lost their best guy on O and their 1B on D in Leon and Jenkins early in the year.

    Marshall was a rule 5 guy in 07, spent the entire season on the A’s roster after being in the cali league (a ball) the previous season. 08, he split time between double a and triple a. last yr he pitched most of the yr in triple a. dont know what to think.

    lol….SMFH

    The Cardinals may have overspent a bit by signing Holliday to a seven-year, $120 million deal this week, as there was no obvious rival for the outfielder’s services willing to pay nearly as much; only Holliday’s agent, Scott Boras, knows for sure. Still, it’s fair pay since lesser players such as Torii Hunter, Andruw Jones and Vernon Wells have signed for more, and worrying about how it might constrain payroll years from now is a bit silly. When you have a guy who could end up rating as one of the dozen best players of all time (Albert Pujols) still in his prime and two ace pitchers (Chris Carpenter and Adam Wainwright), you should field the very best team you can afford and let the future play out as it will.

    Compare this to the Mets’ slightly desperate signing of the market’s other top outfielder, Jason Bay, to a four-year, $66 million contract with an easily attained vesting option for a fifth year. Bay, 31, may be a vaguely better hitter than Holliday right now, but given his much narrower range of skills he’s also a good bet for a quick decline. The Mets will likely wish they were rid of their new prize at some point during this contract. The Cardinals likely won’t.

    Maybe he’s afraid of losing that “legend” status. He’s coming off one of his worst years + between Weis comments and his behavior after the Stanford game I guess he figured he should flee the scene for a bit.
