Either Collins is a complete lunatic who just dreams up wild scenarios based on small passing discussions with the GM, or they're now doing PR damage control for his loose lip
Either way the guy...
They don't need to say anything. The results and their complete lack of accountability for continued failure on the field says it all.
Common sense suggests a team that operates in NY and charges amongst the highest prices in baseball have owners willing and able to invest in a payroll appropriate to that market.
This guy is so easy to root for.
Are you suggesting we trade Murphy to the Blue Jays?
If it has no traction with the Mets brass why the hell is the manager discussing it with the press as if it does?
Either they're backtracking publicly to pretend what TC said isn't really true, or...
No one is arguing the fact that the players aren't getting the job done. The issue is whether this already anemic offense is being hurt by TC's decisions.
The Flores/Tejada situation the other...
He's so freaking young.
He's definitely high risk to get overwhelmed by the combination of major league pitching talent and major league glitz.
But if he wows people during his tryout, you may...
Pretty soon Sham will be on his top 15 list.
Then you'll know for sure.
So, if Herrera pulls a Matt Harvey and tears it up right away as he hits the bigs, then what?
Who's getting traded (probably Murphy I'd assume), and what would be a reasonably hypothetical trade...
There may be valid concerns about TdA's health behind the plate and what the organization plans to do with him, but publicly discussing the idea that he may not be durable enough in their...
If this is a money issue then the team is going nowhere anytime soon.
If this is a health concern issue, try to trade d'Arnaud in a package to get a legitimate SS or OFer. But it is absurd to...
If they are seriously concerned that he's one foul tip away from no longer being a catcher, and believe Plawecki is someone that can comfortably take over and produce from behind the plate, I'd...
That's a bold callup. Surprised it isn't Reynolds.
Gotta get that 74th win.
There was an accusation somewhere?
Perhaps it's just a matter of perspective, but it happens often enough around here.
But as we're saying, to each his own in terms of opinion. No harm comes from simple discourse.
No but I have plenty of evidence of Wilpon brown-nosing right here in this thread.
But it's like Waldo. You'll have to find it yourself.
I suppose the humor of the statement is lost in text format.
And having different opinions is what I'm all about. But when people express their opinions about their concerns about the team, the...
I came here to criticize Collins but after reading this thread I realize I have no right to an opinion as a fan.
Have a nice day.
That's a disgrace.
Don't underestimate the Wilpons desire to do something like this just to one-up Selig brown-nosing.
Maybe if you just put your tin foil hat on again you'd have more fun with this exercise.
How long before the Mets public question something like "the off-season behavior exhibited by Wheeler while back home with friends".
No one (in their right mind) disagrees with your idea that a younger team is desirable. As you always say, it is a young man's game.
But spending in free agency is a supplement, not a...
