    Apologies for the stream of conscious Metro North heading into a tunnel nature of the post. I was ready to be bashed for content, not style (since I write for a living). But you boys are right.

    I worry about a world where 12.5 lines equals walls of text.

    I don't think the buyer/seller construct is the way to look at this. No way they give up any part of the farm for a rental player or to take on a salary dump (my definition of buyer). They're...

    I think it's the opposite. Valverde's problem is he is going after batters, all out, without recognizing the fact that his fastball isn't what it was. Not the same velocity, location or movement. ...

    For a start or even two it makes no sense. Plus, they may eventually push them each back a start when they reassess but so far the reporting has said that they don't plan on it. Mejia's due for an...

    Poll: Blister or not, tired bullpen notwithstanding,...

    Blister or not, tired bullpen notwithstanding, I'm glad they pulled Mejia after 5. An unheard of 9-0 lead in an April game for a young guy coming off a rough start and whose innings will be capped...

    Rosenthal and Mets reporting he's going to go ahead and have the surgery.
  9. Poll: He was out by a mile. The ball kicked around...

    He was out by a mile.

    The ball kicked around in a weird way and ended up taking the worst possible of paths.

    Teufel took a chance that he probably should not have, but the lineup could not have...
  10. Poll: Well aware of the rule change, FOC. Too bad...

    Well aware of the rule change, FOC. Too bad Tejada was not. He could have done a number of things, from a fade-away slide to getting into a rundown. But he stopped. Played possum. Quit.
  11. Poll: Sat 10 rows behind the Nat's dugout tonight. ...

    Sat 10 rows behind the Nat's dugout tonight. Seemed like everyone on Washington except Harper was squaring up on Bartolo. Lots of hard outs. Lagares glides after balls as well as any Met CFer I've...
  12. Taking my 10 year-old tomorrow night. Great...

    Taking my 10 year-old tomorrow night. Great seats at a reasonable price. His chances of getting a pre-game autograph from Wright or Harper or others is much higher now that they are no longer a...
  13. Gradually working his way back after neck surgery...

    Gradually working his way back after neck surgery was a legit plan, but when he was still topping out low 90s at the end of ST, they should have taken a closer look.

    His secondaries have gotten...

    Glad it broke well for Mejia. Maybe I'm naive but I still believe we'll have a real short stop by the end of April.

    I still really want Mejia to get the fifth spot but I was wrong about Dice K, and wrong for rooting against him. I thought he was done and I was deeply skeptical of the organization's desire to go...

    That would make sense. Why not err on the side of caution with Niese?

    Bizarre and arrogant is when someone repeatedly puts words into the mouths of others. I never claimed to know more than the GM, nor did I predict how Dice K. will perform. I simply stated that I...

    [QUOTE=WrightStuff82;28202953]Look, if one of two things were true:

    #1. Mejia could pitch 200 innings this year
    #2. We were a legit playoff contender

    1. I'm not looking for him to give us...

    Sorry to disgust you. I believe if he's mediocre or anything less than a disaster today they will retain him and the Tuesday deadline passes. And if they retain him they will hand him the starting...

    Nothing against the guy personally, and it's not my nature to root against anyone affiliated with the Mets, but I really hope Dice K gets lit up early and often today and they give Mejia the shot he...

    Never said anyone should have brokered a deal in boldface, ALL CAPS or otherwise. Said the organization should have seen this coming and, knowing the person they're dealing with and what's at stake,...

    You're not getting that I'm not backing either party here and I'm the farthest thing from a Harvey apologist or a front office basher. IMO, both have mishandled this: Harvey should listen to his...

    Yes, Harvey is acting like an ***.

    Yet the Mets could and should have handled this so much better.

    The people who think he's an *** don't seem to want to put any of this on a front office and...

    Ummm. True. He doesn't want to rehab in Florida and can determine for the most part, where he'd conducts it. And true, his behavior is coming off as juvenile and egotistical. However he doesn't...

    Wasn't implying that Harvey should act like Wright, or that Wright should mentor Harvey on how to publicly conduct himself. Nor was I speculating on Wright or Harvey's short or long-term view of the...
