They're putting any delusions they had about getting back into this thing to rest very quickly.  Hopefully Sandy's being awakened from his perpetual coma and will start to deal off players who don't fit into this team's plans long-term.  Dump Colon's salary.  See what the market will bear for Murph.  If the Mets didn't have guys coming through the system, I might keep Dice K for depth, but see if you can get someone to take him off your hands...though considering that he'll bring back next to nothing, there's probably not much harm in keeping him around for mop-up and to spell other bullpen arms.  Not too many pure untouchables here...really hope Sandy makes some things happen.

Bingo. I stopped being involved when they stopped listening. I wanted them to reserve a few rows to have people either buy a 5 game plan or to allow single game purchases. This would have been the only way to actually grow the section. It was always meant to be open to all fans because I never wanted it to become a clique group like the crazies. As soon as they closed it off to a select group that was it for me. It was fun the first year during that awful season but now it needs to be put out back to pasture.


The bolded makes a lot of sense...could've gotten a lot more people involved.  Seemed like Devils were expecting all-or-nothing from the outset.

Look, it's not as bad as it could be. At the end of the day, they still offered $100± ticket plans for that section to get it going and our biggest complaint was that it was cheesy and annoying by the end of the season.


I'd rather be complaining about this than about the whole fanbase being priced out like Habs, Rangers, or Leafs fans.


You know what's really corporate? What the Rangers did: rebuild the "blue seats" as part of the renovation (and make commercials about it). Big slap in the face if I were a season ticket holder. Doesn't change the fact that Rangers tickets are out of most of those peoples' price range... "We removed thousands of season ticket holders' seats to make more room for luxury boxes, and didn't give them a cheaper deal on the lower bowl tickets we forced them to have to buy... BUT WE REBUILT THE BLUE SEATS."


I think we're a bit too hard on our management..


I'm not anti-management, really, especially this ownership has something that VBK clearly didn't...CASH!  I'll always like them for that reason alone.  I just didn't like the concept of the Diablos and how it came together.

I expect to make the playoffs. No fvcking bullsh!t.


Tri will probably swoop in to tell me (in great detail) why I'm wrong, but I can see this team finishing with anywhere from 83 to about 95 points...if I have to pick a number today, I'll go with 90.  There's just so many ifs with this group.  But Schneider should at least see to it that this team finishes above NHL-.500.  That's the one thing I feel safe in saying.

Haven't seen the game, figures a guy with nearly as many walks as strikeouts this season is no-hitting them. 


Oh well, at least Wheeler was apparently quite good based on his stat line. 


Mediocre return to AAA for Montero: 4 innings (was presumably on a pitch count), 1 ER, 3 BB, 3 K. Plawecki has been curiously absent for a few days.


Such an odd year for Montero.  Everything else is pretty much where it was last year (comparing his AAA numbers from last year to this), except for the walk%, which has not only gotten worse, but has gotten worse since this season has gone on:


2013 Vegas:  88.1 IP, 85 H, 35 R, 30 ER, 25 BB, 4 HR, 78 K, 6.9% BB (considered high for him at the time), 21.5 K%, 3.05 ERA, 3.24 FIP, .252 BAA

2014 Vegas:  54.1 IP, 48 H, 30 R, 22 ER, 27 BB, 3 HR, 52 K, 11.5% BB, 22.1 K%, 3.64 ERA, 4.01 FIP, .232 BAA 


He's the one guy I've kind of given up on getting called up.  I'm still hoping Syndergaard does...and Verrett to a lesser extent.
