Lots To Recap

Pardon the spelling and grammar - I'm going to pump this out and go:

- Looks like Faneca is a Jet - 5 years and 40 million dollars - 21 of which is guaranteed. A bit much, and he'll be 36 when all is said and done, but I think the Jets need to make this move.

- The Vilma trade is for a 2008 4th rounder. IF Vilmas hits certain levels this season, the Jets could get a 2 or 3 NEXT year and give the Saints back a 4th rounder.

- Tannenbaum indicated that the Jets could keep Dewayne Robertson, which would entail restructuring his contract. He also said trading Vilma had most to do with his free agent status next year (BS) and the fact that the Jets have good depth inside (even more BS).

All in all, landing Jenkins, getting a 4th rounder this year and landing Faneca = a good 2 days for the Jets.

- G'town escaped Marquette with a very much needed, though apparently controversial, win. Huge win for the Hoyas, who desperately needed a big road win and got one against the 21st ranked Golden Eagles.

- Ryan Church collided with Marlon A - both are hurt - Church has a concussion and needs a CAT scan.

- Carlos Delgado has a bad hip and needed to fly back to NY for an MRI.

In other words, very bad day for the Mets.
