BASEBALL: Quotes of the Week

David Weathers, on being traded to Houston:

David Weathers said one of the toughest parts of getting dealt to Houston was telling his 4 1/2-year-old son Ryan, who is a fixture in the New York clubhouse.

"He was crushed," Weathers said. "He told me, 'you can be an Astro. I'm gonna be a Met.' And then he didn't come out of his room for almost an hour."

Richard Hidalgo, on rumors (prior to the deal being finalized) of his being traded to the Mets:

"I don't think about it," he said of the trade talks. "They're the ones thinking about it (in New York). I don't have anything to say about that, but New York doesn't scare me. I've played in Venezuela."

You got the better part of the deal talent wise. Contract wise, different story. Hidalgo's defense, especialy his arm, is amazing. His bat will come back. Hate seeing him go but that's the reality of a mid-market (cheap bastard owner) team.
