It will be interesting to see how the folks in Kansas City take to Benson's harpy of a wife.

Considering that MacDougal was lights out against the Sox, and sucked ass against everyone else in the Central, I think this deal helps us.

Strictly speaking from a divisional standpoint... Benson isn't very good and Affeldt and MacDougal both have talent and were looking good against us later in the season

Not to mention, his wife would not be too happy in KC after NY!!

That's a steal for KC. MacDougal and Affeldt are both injury prone and even when healthy Affeldt is awful.

The good citizens of Kansas City are dancing in the streets. Now they have someone who will help them recover from 9/11.

If that happens that is nothing but a punishment move to the Bensons. "She thinks she's high society? Go try that lifestyle in KC!" Mrs. Lima runs circles around her anyways.

Somehow, I doubt that one of the Mets' organizational philosophies is vengeance. It's a solid move to upgrade the bullpen, drop some salary and clear a spot in the rotation if they can get a top of the line guy. To suggest, without the aid of teal, that a team would make a significant trade to get back at a player or his wife is really ridiculous.

Thats what I dont get. Furcal, Izturis, Kent, and then Soriano? I guess Kent goes to first, and Soriano goes in the outfield.

Izturis is an awful hitter. They should trade him to and sign Mueller to 3b. They'd have a dynamite infield that way.
