  1. 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
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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)
  5. 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?
  6. 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
  7. Oshie hooking to get that turnover. No penalty call naturally. Trash Schneider letting up a trash goal.
  8. 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?
  9. I'd just go with Eduardo. But according to twitter he's not among the candidates considered
  10. 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.
  11. 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
  12. 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
  13. 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
  14. 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
  15. 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?
  16. On one hand (and this is where I'm leaning) I want to say to the Mets "Stick to your guns on Beltran, you hired him, you believe in his managerial abilities...keep him and this will blow over" (and it will most definitely blow over if they stay firm) Another part of me is thinking...sh!t Beltran/Mets has always been an uncomfortable marriage with this constant undercurrent of failure, bitterness, always wanting to be a Yankee etc. Maybe Mets/Beltran was just never meant to be? I don't know. The situation is fluid..but my heart and my head right now is saying STICK WITH HIM
  17. Wow. Wavering. This is getting dangerously close to a lolmets type moment. I kind of thought he was in the clear and now they may actually sh!tcan him (for WHO? Collins?) Watch they fire him and then Beltran gets a job elsewhere and becomes this great manager
  18. They had no interest in retaining him. No interest in using him within the organization anywhere regarding any matters of hockey operations. Apparently no other team did either. He came here to do "business development" whatever that even means. He doesn't seem like anybody who is in any kind of demand league wide for his expertise of hockey operations. Indeed those would be very tough ties to sever. I just hope he's not granted too much power in terms over overseeing what's going on on the ice
  19. He was jettisoned from that role because he was absolutely useless. We had to take him back in something of a sympathy comeback because no other franchise was interested in Brodeur working in any sort of personnel or operations category. He should be nowhere near a job other than team ambassador or something. The team you openly root for on these boards, the Rangers, when they rebuffed Messier trying to muscle his way to the head coaching gig there. These on ice legends are not always great execs. Brodeur right now absolutely has got to be stopped from digging his claws into the ownership group and having any say over personnel decisions
  20. Martin Brodeur? Why is Broduer supporting an interim GM? Brodeur knows nothing
  21. Cespedes is just a walking sitcom.
  22. I honestly think Belichick and his inner circle up there in New England just floats this Giants stuff every so often to spook Kraft and make sure he is getting his way in all matters of personnel and anything else he wants etc. Because if you don't...don't forget my real desire is that Giants job. In reality he'd probably just retire than come to the Giants at this point
  23. Giants hire Joe Judge? Very strange. I don't know what is happening with them. Judge hasn't coached a game at any level and I don't think has ever called an offensive or defensive play in his life (only special teams)
  24. Mike McCarthy to Dallas Guess we'll see if there was any truth behind the smearing he received on his way out of Green Bay Which sort of surprises me that a respectable league pillar like the Packers would behave in that manner to an outgoing successful coach. Very odd
  25. It's very public him tying up loose ends in the Boston area. Trying to sell a home etc...but honestly I mean it's Brady and Giselle. What would it be so hard for them to rent a house for a year and then they can start doing the TB12 stuff more aggressively. Brady always loves proving people wrong and just thrives off it. It fuels him. The way I kind of see it is that he may want to prove he can win something without Belichick. He also playing with fire a bit as even us joking about him never getting hit behind that line...well I mean he still does get hit and has taken plenty of shots since 2001. The threat of CTE is real and you just don't know with him or any other player how they'll be at 50 or 55. One more year getting hit more often than you have been before at 43 may not be worth it for him. Belichick has won Super Bowls and taken teams to the playoffs without Brady and is 67...I don't know how much he cares about winning as a head coach without Brady for the first time. I kind of see that the years have mellowed him. I'm used to see him seething after losses. He wasn't seething yesterday. Right now I just think he wants to make sure the Patriots are left in good hands QB wise when he retires which probably won't be for another two years I just absolutely see no QB the Patriots can put out there that will be better than even a declining Tom Brady next season in their environment. A new QB could come in and even a good player would be overwhelmed there and following in those footsteps And he may not have a good working relationship with Belichick like Brady did. In my eyes with Brady the Patriots would be a slight favorite over Buffalo to win the AFC East next year again. So why not take one more shot with your best guy and you can sort of craft it as an official retirement tour Brady himself does not like anybody breathing down his neck. He didn't want Garoppolo around and that's understandable. Favre didn't care for Rodgers and Montana didn't care for Young either. I think that is the real conflict here. Brady is still leaving this open ended and year to year with his career...but he's also made in known he doesn't want to bother with any true QB's of the future on the roster. The Patriots absolutely know they need a QB of the future on the roster NOW. I have no clue where San Diego entered the discussion. But as we've seen before where there's smoke there's fire. He's from California ok I get that but even with Brady I don't think the Chargers are going to be a SB threat in 2020. They'd just be some kind of ok 8-8 team. Rebound over this year...but nothing special.] Chicago popped in my head as a potential destination that hasn't really been discussed. But they're further along than San Diego and if you give them Brady...pretty legit contender
