True, but sometimes young players take a step back after their initial season.
I like Harvey, but I'm not sure he'll pitch as well as did when he was brought up last year. He was more impressive in the majors than he was in AAA.
It'll be great if he's really a sub-3.00 era, with a better than 1 K/IP ratio pitcher.
Yup, some do. We don't know what they had him working on in the minors.
I'm hoping he proves to be a 1-2 type pitcher.
Perhaps you are a few years younger than I am and want to have some enthusiasm going into the coming season. That's just fine.
I've been a Met fan since the 1960s and have learned to temper my expectations. It's just easier to be rooted in reality than thinking that every year will be 1969.
You should consider being polite though. No reason to insult others. You'll learn that as well with time.
I think they are moving in a necessary direction. For years I've been disappointed that this franchise so rarely develops talent but when they do.....Seaver, Gooden, Wright, Strawberry...it's more electric than any imported mercenary. I love the way the Marlins have been able to reinvent themselves over and over and the way the great young players just seem to pour out of the Tampa and Minnesota organizations. I would be thrilled to be a Nationals fan for the same reasons.
I'm willing to wait few years for the Mets to develop some great young talent and have a competitive team for years. I hate watching old players collect paychecks they haven't earned.
