And you know what that means?
Our OF is going to overperform and we will be cussing our pitching.
Tell me that doesn't sound Mets.

Pretty much, in recent years it's everyone thinks we will have an Ok to good offense and our pitching would stink, then just the opposite happens.
I just want them to finish strong.
Not sure that is an expectation.
our outfield is pretty putrid...i was really hoping they'd do SOMETHING in the offseason to address it....but they didnt....i would expect that not one of our outfielders will post a positive war season, as all are basically average triple a players
and im sorry but duda is not striking fear into ANY opposing team, even if he does somehow manage to hit 20 hrs...which i don't think he will bc most of those 15 came BEFORE the league totally figured him out by june
I wouldn't say putrid, just unproven.
"and im sorry but duda is not striking fear into ANY opposing team, even if he does somehow manage to hit 20 hrs...which i don't think he will bc most of those 15 came BEFORE the league totally figured him out by june'
I don't think it was so much the league figuring him out rather then him slumping and being lost. And I think his high side is much better than 20 HRs, he needs to figure himself out though first.
no...i think putrid is the word i was going for
unproven would mean that we have players w/ potential to be good...young prospects....like tda & wheeler are unproven....but i expect good things
duda is proven....to be bad....the other guys have very limited upside, kirk and mdd included
there is not one OF on this team that I would reasonably expect to ever be an above average contributor...that's pretty bad....
there is where we disagree
i just don't see him ever putting it all together...if he proves me wrong, great
but right now, i see him as a below average dh who at his best might put up a 250/320/425 line w/ about 15-20 hr while playing the worst of defense in the league...in other words a fairly ineffective player
The outfield is awful! The last time the OF was this bad was 1999. That was a pretty good team actually, but the outfield blew.
Forget the negatives for a minute... its baseball time and who knows what will happen? Lets go Mets!
duda's had more than a full season...he is pretty bad
kirk is really a fourth of and thats what scouts have said about him for the past 3 years
how bout this - find one scouting report on any one of our ofers that suggest they are more than a dh or 4th of and i will reconisder
"The last time the OF was this bad was 1999. "
Actually the last time the outfield was this bad was last year.
"duda's had more than a full season...he is pretty bad"
He has had one good season one bad season so to use the fact that he has had more than one season and then just focus on his production from the bad season is not fair to him.
Oh c'mon you are spoiling my fun...
BTW, this OF should be better than last year. No Bay, no Torres, and did I mention no Bay?
