  1. Mets also signed lefty reliever Chasen Shreve. He was with the Pirates last year. Threw 56.1 innings and had a 3.20 era. 45 k's. Lefties hit .200 off of him and righties .221
  2. Mets have signed Travis Jankowski to a minor league deal. 30 years old, always had excellent speed and will draw some walks here and there, but not much of a hitter. Can also play all 3 outfield positions so I have a feeling we'll be seeing him at the major league level this year
  3. The Conklin signing surprised me. No idea they were in on another TE. Conklin is a very athletic guy coming off a career best 61 catch season. Watching him play he sometimes really looks WR-ish when making plays on the ball especially near the sidelines and making plays on contested balls. So we're pretty much set at that position and now it's looking doubtful they'll go for McBride in the draft. TE position is totally set for 2022, just gotta hope both stay healthy
  4. If we're ever at the point where he absolutely needs to add a finishing touch somewhere, and the team is close...I feel he will ante up and not walk away when a player has exceeded the value tag that the Jets have pegged him with. Douglas approach sort of reminds me of Lou when he was with the Devils. Stingy and not willing to pay a penny more than what he feels your worth is.
  5. And that's why, Marcus Williams to Baltimore. 5 years 70 mil (14 mil a year! That's excellent. Where were we?) Happy with Whitehead but a bit confused on this one
  6. Interestingly Connor Hughes is saying they have not closed the door yet on Marcus Maye...so we'll see what transpires there
  7. Jordan Whitehead is the guy from Tampa. Solid player. Nothing spectacular but both still very young and important upgrades for us. Jets are starting to look like a competent team
  8. Was listening to a Jets podcast yesterday...apparently there are some attitude issues with JC Jackson with some comparing him to a potential Trumaine Johnson type. Patriots must've seen him as a potential problem (who may drop off when he gets paid) down the line.
  9. Tevin Coleman was a nice signing. Useful rotation back. Another Bilal Powell type Tomlinson fits the profile well of the player Joe Douglas wants. A monster in the trenches and can stay on the field. And we got him at a good price. Uzomah...he is 29 which worries me a bit. But his size makes him a matchup nightmare especially in the redzone. He's a big yac guy which is something the Jets org values a great deal as well. I dodn't think the Jets are done at the TE position either as I can see them picking up McBride in the draft (or someone else) And good to see Berrios back too. Thought some idiot team would overpay mightily for him but we got him back at a good rate Now we need to upgrade the secondary. Would love to see either Marcus Williams or Stephen Gilmore
  10. I had no idea he was even an All Star recently or that he was as good as he was. The A's to me (as well as they do staying relevant despite huge financial shortcomings) can sometimes be a bit out of sight/out of mind. He's definitely a late bloomer (heck he didn't even thrown an MLB pitch until he was 25) but the real turning point was TJS...since coming back from it in 2018 he's been a terrific starter, and the perfect #3 guy for us. Those stretches when deGrom-Scherzer-Bassitt are firing on all cylinders, the Mets are going frustrate the hell out of a lot of offenses. You catch the Mets at the wrong time and teams will feel like they're already swept before taking the field having to go through that buzzsaw
  11. The Mets have traded for Chris Bassit (Former A) Adam Oiler and JT Ginn to Oakland
  12. Yes. Great way to put it. New money and causing too much of a ruckus among that exclusive club that they have. Plus he's new competition and they know he actually cares about winning unlike Wilpon who they all knew was a weakling running a clownshow with his scuzzy son. But to them at least the Wilpons were predictable in their incompetence. Cohen is still a wild card I feel they'll probably make sure the ball is nice and juiced this year once again, and instead of promoting the nuance and game within a game aspect of baseball...they'll continue to try to make it a 15-12 home run heavy mash fest. Base stealing, hit and run, good defensive...good fundamentals, situational hitting and awareness, that's all dying. They want guys hitting 600 foot home runs and posing like Hulk Hogan circa 1985 They're after the millennials, and they have to get down on their level to sell this game.
  13. And just like that...a bolt out of the blue, the lockout is over and we will have baseball in 2022! canceling the season (or missing significant time) would've been catastrophic for the sport especially where it stands within the fabric of America.
  14. And we kick things off with a bombshell Russell Wilson to Denver What's Jamal Adams thinking?
  15. It just feels strange, that the Cincinnati Bengals (and good for them, nothing against them) have reached the Super Bowl before I even got a chance to see the Jets get to one. Even the Bengals get their day in the sun before us. I can see them putting a scare into LA, but I think the Rams take this 27-16
  16. What an absolute gut punch for Buffalo. They had their ticket punched for Super Bowl #5...ripped away. KC who for so many years endured playoff gut punch after playoff gut punch...are now the ones delivering the gut punches This is gonna be a tough one for Buffalo to recover from. 13 seconds to go, Josh Allen heroically on the road gives them the lead and they give up two chunk plays and a tying field goal.
  17. The only thing that surprised me about that Rams/Bucs Hollywood production was how it ended. I me you just see this stuff and you can literally predict the insane miracles and breaks and Rams gaffes that were going to transpire. This is getting just too damn bizarre. I'm shocked the Bucs didn't pull it off. The Rams were choking at a level I have never seen before
  18. Bit of an old article, but this just keeps happening. Can't even put into words how bad this teams luck is. It's hard to grow, develop and take any steps forward when this bizarre epidemic won't end. I do recall the 49ers coming in a few years ago and stating how bad the Metlife turf is...so there could be something to that. https://thejetpress.com/posts/ny-jets-injured-team-nfl-2022 It seems like every year the NY Jets are hit with an unprecedented string of injuries. Sure, every NFL team is forced to deal with injuries, but many Jets fans certainly believe that their team is hit harder than most. And they would be right. The Jets have had an almost unparalleled string of injury luck over the last three seasons. Once again, they rank dead-last in the NFL when it comes to being healthy. Using a statistic called "Banged Up Score" or B.U.S. — a statistic that calculates how injuries impact overall team and player performance — the Jets are the most injured team in the entire NFL.
  19. Also just went to show how badly we need offensive line help. Bit late for this but why the hell would you start a guy against a team that's at home in a hostile environment, something to play for and can absolutely pin their ears back and are going out there to crush your QB. It's not like the Jets had any incentive to play spoiler either. The Jets were down 74 receivers this game and were left with guys off the street it seemed. Zach isn't going to grow, learn, or make any kind of strides in bleak, hopeless situation like this. He got sacked like 8-9 times. They really should've just thrown Flacco in there. There's nothing to gain from a game such as this for Wilson
  20. Little late to comment on this but while I didn't see them making a Super Bowl this year...they had stretches where they were clicking on all cylinders and Mac Jones seemed very ahead of schedule. You had the entire NFL looking at Belichick and New England and wondering..."Oh sh!t, here we go again". That brilliantly coached and executed 14-10 win vs Buffalo had everyone bowing to them. But they came apart in the aftermath. That game where the Colts shredded them on the ground they never really regained their swagger from it. Overall for New England this year the good far outnumbered the bad. They are well positioned to make a run here within the next 2-3 years. Will Jones take that step forward and become a top 10 QB? A lot hinges on that, as well as what Miami and Buffalo do. But they absolutely have to go out there and get Jones some elite playmakers at the receiver position. It's not gonna happen with Meyers-Bourne-Agholor as your top 3. All three are decent but they're not scaring anybody going into a tough playoff game on the road
  21. To me Keiths number retirement is more a lifetime service # retirement rather than an acknowledgement of just his playing career. He's been a beloved Mets broadcaster for a while now (and part of maybe the best booth in baseball). As a player, he had a nice run with the Mets, but really it was only 7 seasons or so (with three of them being top 10 in MVP voting) so I'm really looking at this as an honor due to his career service to the Mets in several capacities. If it was just playing days...then I'm very stingy with number retirements (I would not have done Stengels who I feel every generation of Mets fans view with indifference and maybe some curiosity)
  22. Saleh and LaFleur are not it. I can understand going for it (I would've kicked a FG) but to call that play is just stupidity beyond comprehension. It's Gregg Williams level from last year. How do you call a sneak on 4th and 2? I've never seen something like that. They may get better next year but I don't think Saleh will be the guy to finally bring them to the promised...and we will certainly be needing a new OC. Can't make those kinds of calls. Just can't Ulbrich too. He's braindead and needs to be gone at seasons end
  23. I know it's the sh!tbag Jaguars but any kind of win is a step forward building block for this franchise. Probably should have put up more points but made some hyper aggressive playcalls, gambles instead of trying to take the points. And I understand why with the situation we were in...still it would've sucked if leaving points on the board cost us against Jax. I just want to get that feeling of winning at 1 Jets Drive. At least we've doubled our win total from last year Also our lineman make better plays on the football than our receivers do And that Wilson long touchdown scramble reminded me a lot of Darnolds. Carter (who is going to be part of the solution if we ever turn it around) is a very solid tough player and had himself a good game along with Tevin Coleman.
  24. I'm glad they came to their senses and went with the established, veteran guy. He's a known, proven commodity, he's turned teams around, he's managed in NY and can deal with the stresses and pressure (and media). He is a bit old but 65 today isn't what it was 30 or 40 years ago. He still has the fire to go out and win a World Series. Finally we have a guy who won't make repeated bonehead decisions. We can actually be a team that outmanages others during a game. Buck is an all around good baseball man and I'm glad he's here.
  25. Miami adjusted and the Jets absolutely looked like they stopped competing and didn't give an effort in the 2nd half. When this defense looks bad it looks historically unfathomably bad Combine the lack of talent already with the incredible rash of injuries and this is what you get. How they even have 3 wins is beyond me with the luck this team has. Wilson had a nice 1st half but had no chance at all in the 2nd. I'm still leaning to this guy not working out. The Jets outright did not possess the ball in the 2nd half it seemed. What happened in the 3rd an 4th q's is one of those instances where you look at the staff and wonder if they're the guys who can ever get it turn around. I just don't know
