  1. Mets have traded RHP Bobby Wahl, RHP Andrew Hill, and infielder Felix Valerio to the Brewers for Keon Broxton Where does this leave us with Lagares. Broxton is also a great fielder and has legitimate good HR power, but is an almost comical strikeout machine

    Yea the smug Ken doll type act is wearing on me too. He is unbelievably cocky and will find out mighty quickly that we don't fall for this BS. He may have already found out. That kind of money to Grandal at 30 is scary. I look at Grandal and see a guy who yes gets on base, yes has some pop (will also K himself into oblivion) he's a guy who looked to me...Duda-esque. And he seemed prime to take a Lucas Duda dip in production after the big 3-0. Curious how he handles man child Jeff over the next few years. Sandy I feel was kind of jaded. Bit dead on the inside, tired when he was here. He managed Jeff to the best of his abilities. I'm sure he let Jeff have his wins here and there on internal disagreements to keep him happy. How will Brodie handle Jeffs meddling? Because he doesn't strike me as a "diffuse the situation/concede defeat" type that Alderson was. Brodie I fear may actually butt heads with Jeff because of his own ego. And it could get ugly. And if it does his tenure here could end up being a lot shorter than we anticipate And you're right about the defense. It's the situational baseball we constantly fail at. Properly positioning outfielders in later innings. Having absolute butchers on the infield with no range, who can't pivot, can't turn the big late inning DP when we need it, chucking balls into the outfield and allowing tying and go ahead runs to score. This happens way too often to us.

    You're right for all the hubub about Arrowhead, all they do is lose their. Constantly. I mean freaking Tennessee came in and erased a 21-3 deficit. Rams have a shot at this, they're better coached than KC, I don't feel they'll be as tight as KC, and they might be able to get real interior pressure on Brady. But Belichick and Scarnecchia have two weeks to figure out how to keep them at bay. They usually succeed at this Total coin flip game really. Can LA keep NE keep them from converting the 3rds that KC couldn't. The Rams do have a better secondary. Is old man Wade Phillips up to the task? Mcvay vs Belichick is a great storyline too

    Jets have signed Frank Pollack to be the offensive line coach. Was with Dallas from 2013-2017. First two years as an assistant, last two as the OL coach. 2018 he spent in Cinci. Left on his own accord but their line was much improved this season under his guidance (Zac Taylor will likely be bringing his own people in) Good hire. Respected coach throughout the league. I think we're putting together a quality coaching staff. Miles better than Bowles and his merry band of idiots

    It's unreal that it doesn't matter who they stick in the GM role they always end up peddling this type of BS. You don't need to explain to us why. You don't need to even answer us on social media as to why we're not even in the conversation regarding Harper. Any Mets fan with an IQ above room temperature knows. Just say nothing instead of giving such a lame response I like Jeff McNeil. He looks like a nice little late bloomer of a player. But he also has less than 300 major league at bats. When you put him in a discussion with Bryce Harper, it's McNeil who turns into the punchline. And he doesn't deserve that

    Williams is precisely the type of fiery take no prisoners personality the Jets need within the organization especially after the totally inept and confused Bowles & Rodgers error. I'm definitely looking forward to a lot better preparation and attention to detail from these two. Doesn't mean these are the two guys to lead us to the promised land, but I do think things will absolutely get better and Gase/Williams are just outright better football people Could care less about Gase's eyes. So he has bug eyes. Don't care how awkward he comes across in those settings. He's not a suit and press conference guy...he's a football guy. All the better Also like how we retained Boyer as Special Teams coach. Did a terrific job in 2018-19

    Haven't read any literature on this but wasn't it Mel that (I guess via direction from the front office) wanted Doc to perhaps take a something off his fastball and deliberately pitch to more contact at times...which I guess led to the butchers in the field mishandling things and thus making him work harder getting extra outs by rearing back and throwing harder when he should've been out of the inning. Their attempts to save Docs arm and extend his effectiveness ended up having the opposite effect. Sometimes if it's not broke you shouldn't fix it...or just roll with what you've got for however long you can have it and don't tinker

    Harbaugh will return to the NFL (within 5 years I predict). And he would've been open this year but he really wanted to be wooed and given total authority over all football decisions

    That would be a good hire. But it would also be a guy that may force Gase to look over his shoulder a bit. And a guy who we know wants to be a HC. If the Jets aren't winning, but the D is playing pretty well...there will be pretty quick calls for Williams to take over. Jets fans will not have much patience with Gase

    Joseph is an upgrade over Kacy Rodgers though, but essentially we're going from a D student to a C student here and that's not the goal. Not for the Jets or any other team I was surprised too. Denver usually knows what they are doing (though they have lost their way a bit, starting with the drafting of someone like Paxton Lynch and Kubiak leaving. But Joseph is nothing more than a coordinator who will bounce around the league for another 20 years

    I think the majority of Jets fans are overreacting a bit. But they have a right to be perturbed. Gase doesn't seem inspiring. His track record is sort of middling. I don't think he'll end up a clueless bozo like Bowles but he does not strike me as a guy who can take a club to the next level With Belichick, at least he displayed brilliance as Giants DC. You saw real innovation and lightning quick adaptation from him. In Cleveland his lack of people skills really hurt him (among other things, he never had a Brady either) but with him you knew there was some brilliance lurking there. He just had change some things, find the right spot, mellow out a bit. Forget the press conference character, behind the scenes he's really like that. With Gase I've just seen a pretty average coach who's kind of a curmudgeon for a young guy. Supposedly he did really well in talking to Darnold who seemed to like him the best of all the other candidates

    d'Arnaud is the only catcher I can ever remember who airmailed one so badly to 2b that Lagares had to make one of his signature nice plays on it (I'm sure we've mentioned it somewhere in the archives here, you me or Has) I just remember thinking the only think that would make this moment more lolmets was if d'Arnaud threw out his shoulder and Lagares injured his hand. Of course both would get hurt a few weeks later I think

    I think McCarthy will do well here if he gets the job. He's been a bit unfairly smeared on his way out of Green Bay and does not receive nearly enough credit for the job he did repairing Favre as well as his work with Rodgers. And the Packers being consistent winners. Also intrigued with Rhule. He seems like a very thorough, smart guy who is detail oriented and wouldn't let things slip like Bowles did. Culture changer Gase is meh. He could do well but he could also end up a total dud And it looks like Bowles is on his way to Tampa to be the DC for Arians Arians is a good hire for the Bucs

    Probably some scrap heap catcher. I don't have any faith in d'Arnaud being ready or even lasting more than 30 games. Something always happens to him. Thing is while Plawecki is nothing special at the very least he has some chemistry and familiarity with the pitching staff as opposed to a new no name catcher Would have rather kept Plaw and moved on from d'Arnaud

    It sucks but what can you do. If you're a fringe NHL guy being money in the shootouts makes you useful. Helps you stay in the league.

    I think it's pretty much a trade for John Harbaugh or bust for Ross (Denver is supposedly in on Harbaugh as well) Rex can do all the campaigning that he wants the only way he's getting back into the league is as a DC first.

    I can't believe I'm hearing Jim Caldwell will interview for the Jets job. Are they actually stupid enough to hire Caldwell? Can't be? He's not the worst thing in the world but his two tenures have essentially been him walking into one nearly perfect situation (Indy) and one just completed rebuild (Detroit) that was ready to compete. And he never got either team over the hump. He's always had above average talent and not been able to take it to the next level. He's just basically been lucky.

    I can see Bowles getting interviews sure, some may be serious, some may be to be in compliance of a certain rule. However once teams really start digging deep on Bowles and his tenure here with the Jets, they're not going to like what they find. I just don't know how an owner and GM can sell Todd Bowles to another franchise. I don't. Gase is supposedly getting a lot of interest. I thought he'd get another year in Miami but you'd also figure Stephen Ross would do what he can to prevent the Jets from getting Jim Harbaugh.

    Yea actually I'm a bit surprised it was just after the game. I'd figure if they'd come this far with Bowles they'd probably wait until Black Monday, but no this was pretty quick and abrupt. Whoever the Jets are targeting they clearly want to be first out of the gate

    To be totally honest, odds are New England is going back to another Super Bowl. It's not a given but I just don't see Lamar Jackson going in there and winning a game. I don't trust the Chiefs anywhere in the playoffs. Mahomes is still something of a rookie that Belichick feasts on (I actually think Darnold did pretty well against him, with nobody on the Jets even trying, 16-28 with 0 picks is a good performance with what Belichick does vs rookie QB's) Chargers I think could do it, though I wonder imagine they host an AFC title game...would they play it on a sub 30k capacity soccer field? ha

    Darnold was the only one who showed up but his entire offensive line quit. Really for all the glowing things the players say about Bowles, all they do is show up unprepared and quit. The total amount of times this team has been out-schemed over the past 4 yeas is enormous. Add to the fact that they get out-hustled too. And the Johnsons allowed this to continue. They endorsed this garbage
