I'm not sure if I totally buy this, I mean yes the mets are obviously using Harvey as an excuse to delay putting a playoff caliber team together, but when Anderson first came in here, Harvey was not expected to be as good as he was as quick as he was, he was sort of found money in a sense late in the 2012 season. If alderson was counting on Harvey being the ace of the 2014 team from the day he walked in his office then I sincerely doubt his ability as a gm.
This is largely true. Harvey was not projected to be an ace, though his 2012 call-up raised expectations a little bit.
In an alternate universe where Harvey never gets hurt, I don't think Sandy would've done much more than he did this offseason...the Mets were never going to be in on the big FAs. nmig said it perfectly...Sandy seems to pick the oddest targets to suddenly show a pulse with (Frank Francisco, Curtis Granderson, Bartolo Colon).
I am about as down as Sandy as I can get, but come 2015, he's all out of excuses. We'll see if he's capable of doing what needs to be done and showing actual creativity and aggression.

THE NHL MUST LOVE THE DEVILS - from who else? A RANGER fan!

Even when Marty comes back maybe Larry should put Clemmensen to be on the goal during the shootouts.
Can the coach do that ? Switch the goalies 5 seconds to go in overtime? - Most priceless quote ever posted on a message board.
Martin Brodeur: THE MOST ALL-TIME WINS!, 12 straight seasons of 30+ wins, 3 Stanley Cups, 4 Vezina Trophies, and zero respect from too many so-called Devils "fans" who are either too young or too bandwagon to remember the much darker days of Sean Burke, Craig Billington, Bob Sauve, Alain Chevrier, and the talented but overwhelmed Chico Resch, among many others.
It's easy to support a great player when he's playing at his very best. It takes a true fan to support that same player during those rare moments and stretches when he's not. Babe Ruth went 0-4 some games, and sometimes Wayne Gretzky was held pointless. There may be such a thing as greatness, but no such thing as absolute perfection every single night.
