  1. Marte worries me with what his career trajectory could be potentially. 31. He doesn't and has never walked much but does get on base generally. But if that bat slows down those K's will be up in the 160's or 170s possibly. And he won't be walking so he'll be pretty useless. And while he has power it's never really been great power
  2. Yea that shocked me too. I mean seriously 50 games into the season you have to be pretty inept to not have 1 second unit goal. That has to be an NHL record (if such records are even kept)
  3. There isn't, and supposedly the Diamondbacks wanted two of our top 5 prospects. For a 31 year old. That's a no. I'm not saying I wouldn't have done it under different circumstances. If our prospect pool was deeper. If we were on the cusp and thought he was the final piece...but not right now
  4. Brown wasn't trying to hit Vatanan there but man was that ugly and irresponsible
  5. Good start to this game. Chances early on Dano is very hard to listen to.
  6. Well then enjoy the all star crap. In this world there are going to be people who disagree with you. You have to accept it without resorting to personal attack tantrums
  7. maybe people just don't want to watch low quality garbage. Yea let's attract 5 casual female fans at the expense of 1000 real fans. Great strategy
  8. The 3 on 3 garbage has made the all star game even less exciting than it used to be. Somehow. just cancel this already
  9. Why are women playing the most wretched slow 3 on 3 hockey I've ever seen? They're boring. TV off. Absolutely wretched. This is the NHL skills competition so why are they forcefeeding hockey that would lose to most boys high school teams around America and Canada
  10. And I hope we give him a nice deep playoff run. Or better yet a Cup. Since 2012 he's played 5 playoff games. He deserves far better
  11. If he can put in 4 more years and stay health, he can break Daneyko's record for most regular season games played as a Devils. With his defensive skills if his skating doesn't totally go south and he can still chip in 30 pts a year...he may be worth keeping around.
  12. I like that Alou pedigree. Felipe was a terrific manager under some very trying circumstances (bleak and hopeless ones) his players always played hard for him and he was always thinking several moves ahead.
  13. eh. I don't really know how to feel about this. I'm still sort of shaking my head after the whole Beltran debacle. Need to get that further in the rear-view mirror. Impossible to get excited about Rojas, but at least he's paid his dues in the minors. No chance he's a Mickey like abomination/laughingstock type. He's come through our system. He's familiar with a lot of these guys already. He's young, bright...not tainted by anything like Beltran would've been had they forged forward with him (and I still think the Mets could've ridden out the storm)
  14. Devils should absolutely forfeit every game against the sh!tjackets. Do we ever score a goal against them? EVER? fvck this embarrassment of a franchise there isn't a big enough cyanide capsule for the Devils right now. How does Schneider justify using oxygen on this earth right now?
  15. what an embarrassing bust Zacha is. 32 goals in 244 games so far. You've got to really be offensively retarded to pull that off. It's not quite Josefson level but man did this team just go above and beyond trying to draft guys who cannot score goals
  16. Oshie hooking to get that turnover. No penalty call naturally. Trash Schneider letting up a trash goal.
  17. Garbage franchise continue to churn the trash. I think the 25th time (it seems) they allowed a goal with under a minute to go in any period?
  18. I'd just go with Eduardo. But according to twitter he's not among the candidates considered
  19. And another chapter in the Mets/Beltran failed marriage. Honest to god everything associated with him and the Mets...whoevers fault it is...just ends in failure and ugliness. Congrats now add this to the caught looking, the Walter Reed bailout, wanting to sign with the Yankees, the 2007 collapse, his garbage 2005 season, breaking his face after colliding with Mike Cameron. I don't want to see Beltran set foot at Citi Field ever again And he came this close to ruining Johans no hitter.
  20. They picked a guy who they felt was the best candidate, and they deduced (correctly) that whatever his involvement was was not severe enough to come back and haunt them based on what he told them. What exactly changed since then? Well guess we'll find out. But I can't fault them for hiring Beltran when they did. Nothing that has surfaced just yet can justify his abrupt dismissal. Maybe it will. If he lied to them badly then...what can you do? You want to hire the best possible baseball person and to the Mets, it was Beltran
  21. If Beltran truly is considered an up and coming manager type...I'd say he's managing somewhere by 2022. Probably a bench coach first to ease him back in. I don't think this will hinder him as badly as the others
  22. The Mets had nothing to do with this really. They ended up in a tough situation but there hands are clean regarding any sort of cheating
  23. Can't say I'm surprised. They buckled to the pressure. It was pretty much over as soon as the rumors came out of them wavering. This would've disappeared so quickly...but yea the media and Manfred got what they wanted
  24. It's clear Beltran is on Manfreds hit list for this. Player then, manager now...he was able to skate on a technicality but mentioning him by name clearly puts him in the cross-hairs. The Mets doing nothing may run afoul of Manfred...and he's somebody that we need on our side as we try and phase the Wilpons out and get this new ownership in. I really don't feel that Beltran should lose his job over this (and potentially have a future managerial career derailed) but Manfred may have made it known to the Mets that it would be in their best interest...to at least suspend the guy or something like that. But an outright firing. Too harsh for his role in it relative to the others Manfred needs to think and be reasonable too. What the hell situation am I putting the Mets in here? It's mid January and I'd be leaving them scrambling with no manager. Is this reasonable for a franchise that had no part at all in the cheating?
