    The Coupons aren't spending any money on FAs. There will be no notable FA signings this offseason.

    The Mets farm has good arms but very little bats, and the bats they do have are 3-4 years away with the exception of Flores, who is blocked.

    Ellsbury is only signed for one more year and with Boras as his agent will command a big salary. The Coupons cannot/will not sign him long term. Trading Niese for a one year rental during a...

    This is both sad and hilarious. THE COUPONS, or the employees that the Coupons hired to run this, are moronic.

    The fans CAN fire the owners. It is possible. Unfortunately, it is not practical as not everyone will rally for this cause. The method would be to not attend Mets games until the owners sell. If...

    The fastest way to contention would be to replace THE COUPONS with an owner who can/will spend New York level money.

    This is an outrage.

    Have you seen the latest report from Rubin where he cites a source that says next years payroll will either be the same or cut even further? That's why.

    The Coupons need to sell the Mets to someone who can fund a large market team. 90 million dollars for a team in New York is unacceptable.

    Omar Minaya made some bad moves but he gets too much blame sometimes considering Jeff Wilpon took the baseball decisions away from him around 2009. Jeff Wilpon was the GM of the Mets for the last few...

    Dickey is very cheap next season. Someone would have to blow the Mets away to move him.

    Thank you again for the complex and detailed post. I'm extremely impressed by your knowledge on the topic.

    The primary reason why I drew the conclusion that Wilpon was in trouble as owner is...

    Thanks for the detailed post. What about the Picard settlement, though, where Picard basically said he settled with Wilpon/Katz because their cash flow wouldn't allow them to pay any judgment to...

    I agree that Willingham, in hindsight, would have been a fantastic addition, especially for a team in desperate need for a RH bat, but signing him was never a realistic fit for a few reasons....

    Comparing a salesman for a company to a major league general manager isn't a valid comparison. Alderson isn't trying to sell a product to a customer or trying to meet a quota. He's trying to assemble...

    Nope. Sports for me is an escape from reality, a form of entertainment. 10 minutes after the game ends, I move on.

    The only time a loss really stuck with me for more than an hour was Game 7 in...

    You aren't taking into account the ridiculously tight budget ownership forced on them this season.

    Of the approximately 90 million dollar total payroll, approximately 60 million of that is tied...

    That isn't really fair. The majority of the Mets payroll is tied up in three players for 2013. Santana, Bay and Wright account for approx. 56m dollars for 2013, so if the payroll remains around 90m,...

    Yes, I'm well aware, as I even pointed to in my post. The budget was set by ownership during the first DePodesta draft, before the new CBA. But last year, the new CBA changed that to a degree with...
