...is out indefinitely with elbow inflammation. Not surprised...this is the Mets.
Are K-Rod or Valverde still unsigned?
As for Bourn, would you sign with the Mets who have no chance of doing anything for the next 3 years, or with the Indians who have a legitimate shot at the post-season?
The only upside on all of this is that we'll be able to get tickets on Stubhub for next to nothing...cheap(er) day at the ballpark! Citi is going to be a ghost town.
That is yet to be decided. Philly didn't get anyone of any great value to improve. And Atlanta has to replace Prado, a very underrated player, and Chipper, not only with the bat but also leadership.
Did the Upton brothers and Johnson do that for them?
I was commenting about how improved or not the phils and braves are.
Our team is still a ? mark and everyone knows it. But we are still almost a cinch to get to fourth place. LOL.
Our infield is better if you include the catching position since that gave us almost nothing last year. Even if TDA never comes up this year Buck can do better than our players in that position last year.
Ike may be much better or at least start off quicker than last year. The rotation is at least the same if Johan is okay. Harvey continues to be good and this time all year. Gee comes back from his minor surgery, which I think is a no-brainer. Niese doesn't fall on his face and Marcum is his regular steady self.
The outfield had to improve on Duda, Bay, Kirk, Torres and Hairston. I don't really think that is hard to do even with the players we have available.
Again this is to be the same or better than last year. Hopefully more will go right than go wrong but In my opinion I think we have a chance at third in our division.
Francisco issue is chronic, it is not an inflammation problem but rather a degenerative problem. If it was inflammation you take some NSAIDS and get back after it.
Only the Mets can miss out on the guy they were targeting and lose their closer all in one day.
Parnell is named the closer yet has done nothing to earn that job. The Mets once again think they can promote guys into positions that will hopefully make them elevate their level of performance. There is that word hope again. In most cases the opposite happens. Next thing you know the Mets get off to an awful start, are in an early hole and the Sandy bullpen shuffle begins and it just becomes a complete mess.
Borus used the Mets to get Bourn more money. Nothing more. If SA thinks anybody is going to come here for less than top dollar he is dreaming. At some point SA needs to bring in some talent. Because this has gotten ridiculous..
