K-Rod and JJ Putz!

Great day for New York Mets baseball! My beloved Mets have signed Francisco Rodriguez (aka K-Rod), and traded away some baggage for a dominant set-up man in JJ Putz.
They were able to sign K-Rod to a 3 year $37 million dollar deal. Which in baseball terms, is actually pretty good.
They traded away Aaron Heilman, Endy Chavez, Jason Vargas, Joe Smith, and 3 minor leaguers to get JJ Putz. All in all, a very good deal for the Mets.

I like the fact we got JJ Putz, but I'm upset that we had to give up endy, and joe smith as part of that deal. I think Joe Smith can develop into a really good 8th/9th inning relief pitcher. Vargas sucks, and I have to read up on the prospects. As of right now, Minaya's restoring my faith in his ability as a GM.
