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.

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.
