I personally think the Mets got the best of this one, what do you all think?

Actually, I think the Sox made out better than both teams. This weakens the Tribe even more than they were last week. Plus they are still talking about trading Omar. Let them rebuild while we continue to build.

With Lofton and Alomar gone, and Vizquel possibly next, that is the core of the Indians team of the past few years. The Central could be wide open for the Sox next year. It's looking like it's ours to lose, which is what worries me...

If there was anyway to get rid of clayton and valentin and pick up vizquel i'd feel good about the Sox in '02

Not that I'm suggesting a valentin/clayton for vizquel trade

What are the Mets plans for Alfonzo now? A move to 3rd would make sense, but my sources say he doesn't want to play there.

Did I sleep through something? Winning now has sources?

As I said in the other alomar thread running on here. I can't imagine the logic of trading perhaps the best second baseman of all time when he is only 32 years old. I think that Lawton is decent and Escobar could be. The baffling thing is Lawton is 30 years old!

His stats really weren't much better than Singleton's last year if at all.

Chris had a higher Avg (.298/.277), Slug (.431/.415)
But since chris is allergic to walks his OPS was lower (.797/.762) Also, Lawton has the big advantage in SB and CS, but the other stats really are pretty equal considering Chris had about 200 less at bats last year.

So all in all, WHAT WAS CLEVELAND THINKING?

Well they are cutting payroll from 90 mil to 75. Alomar was really their only chip to trade offensively that would bring them in cheaper, younger players. Escobar was the key to the deal, as im sure Cleveland thinks very highly of him.

I like the fact that I don't have to see Alomar on the Indians anymore, but I don't like seeing Lawton again. Either way it hurts the Tribe though. If Escobar turns out to do what people think he can... look out because the Tribe could be right where they've been for years. From what I hear he is still a year or 2 away from the majors.
