    That's an unrealistic scenario. The Rockies are never going to trade Tulowitzki for Murphy and some other pieces. We are not going to get someone like Tulo for Murph + a couple pieces.

    All this talk about trading Murphy these days is aggravating. Back when Murphy was a rookie we were talking about rebuilding and trying to develop some younger talent and then once we've developed...

    Another reason to remain optimistic that Duda may evolve into one of the games better sluggers.

    I'm not saying let's not seek to improve. I'm just saying let's avoid throwing out Oliver Perez type contracts left and right because the pieces are just not there. Are there pieces that can...

    I couldn't foresee Ellsbury being a Bay-type situation. I think he's the real deal no matter who he plays for. What DOES worry me about Ellsbury is that he's an injury risk.

    I just don't think that combination of guys makes a World Series calibre team.

    And you guys keep bringing up Abreu and yet we don't even know if he can hit ML pitching yet.

    I think we should get Choo. I'd pass on Ethier. We have no idea if Abreu's success in Cuba will translate in the Major Leagues. And H. Ramirez is not available till 2015.

    I just think that we...

    Don't get me wrong. I definitely think we should spend for an item or two (like Choo). But considering what's available I don't think we should use our available funds to fill ALL of our needs. ...

    Trades may end up being the way to go but again the same principle applies. If we must trade, we must make sure that what we get in return is awesome talent. But the flip side of that is what we...

    You see this is what I'm talking about. Eithier is not the impact power bat that we so badly need. Sure he's a decent contributor but he excites no one. Why do we have this mentality that we must...

    Well then I say we don't waste money in 2015 either. It's all about spending your money wisely. I'm tired of Oliver Perez type contracts. Let's use our money to do Carlos Beltran, David Wright...

    I say we DON'T go "all out" in 2014

    I'll be honest with you. I'm not real thrilled with our options in this year Free Agents pool. I keep hearing all this talk on these boards about putting together a "solid" team. But putting...

    So that would pretty much have him putting up Gary Carter type numbers, which wouldn't be too shabby.

    Your Travis d'Arnaud projection

    I realize it's really too early to tell. But with what we know of Travis d'Arnaud thus far, what do you project his ceiling to be offensively? Future Mike Piazza, solid contributor, above average,...

    Something in that neighborhood sounds reasonable (in light of Longoria and Zimmerman's deals).
  21. How will Longoria deal affect Mets' negotiations with Wright?

    How much do you think this will affect the negotiations between the Mets and Wright? Will it set a precedent?

    This is exactly right. Some Mets fans act like if the player doesn't put up MVP numbers right away they are ready to trade him. I think Ike is going to be something special. It would be a mistake...

    Trading Ike would be a mistake. He's an All-Star calibre player in the making. Why would we want to get rid of him? That's mind-boggling! Have we not learned from Jeff Kent and others we lost who...

    Outside of pitchers, I personally think our greatest Met ever as far as impact on the team was Mike Piazza. As far as second place, I'd probably say Keith Hernandez. I have Wright at third place...
