Items of note

The Mets signed Chris Coste yesterday. I’m preparing a rant about this for later, but Toby Hyde said it well:

I wish I was in the conference room at Citi Field where, when the Mets front office was discussing off-season planning, signing Chris Coste before new year’s was on the agenda.

Speaking of Toby Hyde and catchers, he makes a good point about how no free-agent catcher represents much of an upgrade over a Josh Thole/Omir Santos platoon.

Rich Zuckerman wonders if Carmelo Anthony could be a fit for the Knicks when he becomes a free agent after next season. If they sign anyone besides LeBron, I’d like it to be Chris Bosh for a variety of reasons.

I’m sorry. Look at the screengrab of A-Rod here. I’m pretty certain that’s a World Series trophy on his hat, but man. I’m not the only one who sees that, am I?

  1. CAPSLOCK=DISABILITY ACCOMODATION

    COSTE DEAL IS NO MORE THAN A ST INVITE TO COMPETE. SANTOS’ 107 CAREER MLB GAMES CAUGHT IS NOT ENOUGH TO QUALIFY AS MORE THAN CASTRO’S REPLACEMENT ON BENCH. THOLE IS THE FUTURE & SHOULD BE HONED IN BUFFALO. IF MOLINA NOT OFFERED ARBI BY SF, LOOK FOR HIM IN FLUSHING ON 2Y/12M DEAL.(THE RIGHT MOVE)
    WANTED: AN “EXPERIENCED” BACKSTOP TO PARTNER WITH A RELATIVELY NL INEXPERIENCED ROTATION FOR PURPOSE OF GETING THEM THROUGH TOUGHEST MATCHUPS.
