  1. New York Yankees 2015 Thread

    I think most Yanks fans would say those guys deserve to have their numbers retired given the dynasty run. Wish the Mets would give Piazza his due but they seem inclined to wait until he gets elected to the Hall of Fame which I personally find really silly (and it's a joke that hasn't happened yet but that's another story).

    It's probably a case of Sandy overplaying his hand, again. Gee is hardly reliable and not particularly great when he is healthy. He's not young. I've long expected a swap of a reliever and bench player for him to a back-end starter-needy team and I still think that happens between now and Opening Day. I really don't buy the idea of him in the bullpen; I don't think he profiles very well there, I doubt he wants to be there, and the Mets have enough starter depth that he really shouldn't be the next option/6th starter anyway.   I rather have Colon than Gee. He's older and more expensive but I think he's simply better all things equal and it's not exactly clear that the cash saved by trading Colon would have any substance at this point in the offseason anyway -- and that's before you even figure in the small sum the Mets would need to eat to dump Colon. Dumping Colon to make room for Montero or Syndergaard is another story, however, but given pitcher attrition and all that sh!t I'm not sad he's still here.

    I always felt the best opportunity to move Murphy was last June or July. But I've also always felt he's one of those players that has more value to his team than what he'd return in a trade given his skillset.

    I know I'm the youngest, 24 in March. Crazy that I've "known" you guys since I was like 16 or 17. Time friggin flies.
  5. New York Mets 2015 Season Thread

    I think I've only met Hasan at a game before, right? That was the epic Harvey/Strasburg game, which was one of my favorite games I've been too. If we do target a game, definitely a mid-summer weekend game would be best. I swear ANY freakin' April/May game I get tickets for the weather ends up being a total joke.    And yeah, +1 to the annoyance with Sandy's jokes... the joke is on him. For a guy who makes Omar look like a toddler in the public speaking department he definitely has his moments where he look like a clown and embarrasses the organization.

    Haha holy crap Nelson Figueroa is the rumored replacement?! What a weird find. I honestly rarely watch the pre- or post-game anymore anyway but Bobby O's act tired me out really quick when I did watch, so not sad to see him go.    Gonna miss KB but the booth is the 3 kings.... it's going to be a sad day when they split. Best broadcast team in the game, I don't care whether I'm biased. 
  7. New York Mets 2015 Season Thread

    Well the good news is that this *should* be the best team we've fielded in years and some projections think we're a fringe wild card contender as is.... but I remain skeptical because I don't trust the position player core (sorry Wright, as much as I love ya) and the team's chances lay in the hands of the most volatile asset in the game.
  8. New York Mets 2015 Season Thread

    CR: Verrett actually got taken by the O's in the Rule 5 in December.   It's really too bad we had such little interest in getting better this winter with Harvey coming back, the Braves taking a step back, and all of the NL runner-up teams looking meh.   I'm excited for the season, because I always am, whether we're projected to win 50 games or 100, but damn, I really thought this was the time to STRIKE with that over-the-top move with the prospects (and the sad part is I actually thought it might happen, but of course I gave too much credit to Sandy and the Wilpons).

    Nats signed Max Scherzer. Of course they did. But don't worry guys, we signed Cuddyer and John Mayberry! And we still have no actual SS which has been a problem since Reyes left. Fun times.
  10. Official 2014 New York Mets Thread

    Mayberry makes sense; he has good career numbers vs LHP and should play the OF with Cuddyer at 1B when the Mets face a LHP.   The SS situation is really depressing. I know I'm a broken record but I wish we had the money (thanks Wilpons) and balls (thanks Sandy) to go for Tulo. Realistically, of what's left, excluding trades, I like Jed Lowrie most. He's on the wrong side of 30, is coming off a down year, and has notably had injury issues in the past but I have the most confidence in him being decent. Kang sounds somewhat interesting. Asdrubal Cabrera is really more of a 2B or 3B now and I don't even want to hear about Stephen Drew.   I'm guessing we'll add some marginal SS upgrade (think Drew on a pillow deal), a reliever and small pieces via a Gee trade and then go into full hype mode (if we haven't already): the young pitching, yadda yadda yadda, how certain players should be better (while ignoring the regression candidates that outnumber them), yadda yadda yadda, the return of Harvey ("It's like adding an ace!" said Omar Minaya Sandy Alderson), yadda yadda yadda.....   Mark Simon of ESPN -- who you should really read, plus he's a Mets fan -- put it great the other day: the Mets, at the end of the offseason, should be saying 'we added ____ and Michael Cuddyer' not 'we added Michael Cuddyer and ____.'

    Congrats to deGrom on NL RoY. Well deserved. At least something good came out of today.
  12. Official 2014 New York Mets Thread

      Yes, it is. He ranks basically dead last in UZR and DRS among RF over the last five years.....and oh yeah, he turns 36 before Opening Day and is seemingly always ailing with something, so it's not getting any better.   Honestly the terms (2/21) aren't crazy and I really don't give a sh!t about the draft pick anymore. We really do need to win now. But of all people, Cuddyer? It's just a bad match. He's a better fit for an AL team looking to rotate someone between DH/1B/OF, not an OF-needy team that is going to depend on him to play 130+ games out there.   What's done is done, though. There is no turning back now, Sandy -- you can't just sign Cuddyer and be done with it. Go get a bonafide SS and hope it all clicks in 2015. I'd still go balls out for with a deal led by Syndergaard or Wheeler for Tulo and take on his entire deal.
  13. Official 2014 New York Mets Thread

    Cuddyer is old, injury-prone, shouldn't even play the outfield, and his big numbers the last few years are a big product of Coors Field's BABIP-inflating ways. Puke for me. Maybe if we spin off some arms for Tulo I'll have a little excitement, but Sandy doesn't do that kind of stuff.
  14. Official 2014 New York Mets Thread

    LOL Sandy. Just what the Mets need, another old outfielder who will fall apart outside of his crazy friendly home park... and one who is also injury probe and a big liability in the field. They really learned from the Lucas Duda experiment.

    Nice to see the Nats punched out again.
