Big Week for New York

Let's hope that this is just the first big sports event for New York this week. It's a fair amount of the Mets' farm system for essentially one season (I know they'll only make the deal if they sign him to an extension, but they'll be paying the going rate for those years). Still, they didn't give up Fernando Martinez, who is hopefully not the next Alex Escobar. This makes me wonder if neither the Yankees or Red Sox were really in this, and both teams were just trying to keep Santana away from the other. On the surface, the Mets' package doesn't look as good as the ones the Yankees and Red Sox offered.

Kevin Mulvey always reminded be of "mulva" from Seinfeld, so I'm happy to get rid of him...

Well, it's the first "big event," but I know one of us is hoping it's the only good news...

It's not sports, but Giuliani dropping out of the race is yet another great New York event.

I disagree... that's a great event for the world...
