    Will a real 1B please stand up? Will d'Arnault live up to the hype? Will Wheeler come of age? Will C Young play like 5 years ago? Ditto Granderson 3 years ago? Tejada 2 years ago? Can Niese stay...

    We think this way because we know the Wilpons will not spend the necessary amount to improve the NY Mess. We have had teams with ? at every position but 3B for several years. Murphy show the tools to...

    SS is the tougher position to fill and Peralta adds some power. So I hope the Mets are the team said to have offered 4-13. I wouldnt go much beyond that but if that's market value so be it. I would...

    My question is were the Wilpons better off with Omar's spending and a full stadium or with Sandy and $2 tickets on Stub Hub. Anyone remember the lotteries for playoff tickets in 06 or opening day...

    The pitching may not be quite ready but there seems to be a stockpile of it, which will only become more valuable with a modicum of success on the big stage. We may not currently have an ace but he...

    It would have to be based on potential and maybe the thought that a change of scenery might help Ike. Less scrutiny maybe the guy relaxes a bit and get his groove back. Power hitters, which Ike has...

    OK so let's say they can get a viable player (Aoki) for Ike or Duda. That would leave enough cash on the table to sign Jhonny Peralta, Nelson Cruz, and Bronson Arroyo. Then maybe you get a late...

    Here we go again. I agree that the best outcome for this year is getting that top 10 pick. Adds to the talent base and removes any excuse the Wilpons have for not spending on FAs. With the talent on...

    I got it before Lin was in place because Dantoni's system needs a PG and it looked like there was no avenue to acquire one. So now Mike has struck gold and he has his facilitator and hopefully Baron...
