So you think the mets should have let Wright go??
How would that make us better?
You have to keep your great players, and then add. The mets have two young stud pitchers on the horizon and thats the hope
Upton or a Bourn?
Upton will cost an arm and a leg to get, and Bourne is SOO Overrated.
You're willing to give Bourne a 5-year deal? He's 30 years old
I agree with you on your initial point. But we all know they are not going after an Upton or Bourne because of simple perception vs. reality.
Bernie Madoff was the best thing that ever happened to the Wilpons for two reasons:
1) His corrupt high yields on investments spanning two decades made the Wilpons/Katz Sterling brand wealthy beyond their wildest dreams. In fact, their association with him and his clout was probably instrumental in "stealing" and hoodwinking the team from Doubleday in the first place.
2. Madoff still lives in the current operation. They now have the excuse of running the team like the KC Royals for the next decade and beyond and retain ownership of the team for future generations. And their croonie, Selig, will protect them every step of the way.
So the Mets won't be good for at least 3-years, and blowing up the team will make us winners in a few years?
If they blew up the team the Mets wouldn't be good for 5-years.
The Mets are on the horizon of competing, they have a solid core and I believe Harvey and Wheeler will be a Sick #1-2 punch by 2015.
I think the Mets can be solid in 2014 and be very good in 2015.
If Harvey and Wheeler are as good as they are supposed to be, I know it could all falter but I have faith, then the Mets will have one of the best rotations in the NL.
Idk if the Mets will trade Niese or not, but :
is pretty darn good.
Ike could be getting better, he hit 30 homers last year, and Tejada is still only 23yo.
They need to add some bats, but they have time.
