    • WHY DO PEOPLE SAY WE CANT CONTEND?

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.

The thing about the OF is it really is undefined, Even if it is Baxter, Duda and Capt K who really knows what to expect from Capt K based on his near 300 ABS or Baxter based on his 200 ABS?

If everything breaks right we have a shot at .500. A realistic goal for the year would be to not lose 100 games. You could make an argument that we have a decent starting infield, but that's about it...and please don't say our rotation is solid when we basically have one guy that has picthed a full major league season or is not coming off of injury...and look at our outfield..offensively, it's 3 Mike Nickeas's without the catcher's masks.

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.
