    Man, some of you guys are unbelievable. People complain all winter about doublespeak and how the Mets don't tell it like it is... and when someone DOES, he gets slammed for "stating the obvious". ...

    Hasn't this topic been hammered and beaten and bludgeoned and cudgeled and mashed and pulverized and whipped and smacked and died to death already in other threads?

    Umm... pretty sure that's what they've all been saying. Perhaps not in the exact wording that you used, but the idea is the same. I'm confused about what exactly it is that you're looking for them...

    :facepalm:

    If I respond to this post, will Ashton Kutcher jump out of my computer screen to tell me I've been punk'd? Guess I'll find out soon enough.

    Not true. Verducci effect applies to any pitcher 25 or younger who sees his innings increase by 30 or more innings from one year to the next. They don't have to hit 200, though.

    Exactly the point I was trying to make. Unless there's an actual injury that goes along with the extra innings, I would think that the pitcher stands a good chance of adjusting and bouncing back from...

    Pretty sure Carmona and Liriano suffered pretty severe injuries in addition to the strain of additional innings. Pelf didn't have any injuries anywhere near to what those two had.

    I'd be curious...

    The worst... and I mean the WORST... thing that we could do is have everyone in the lineup become Rob Deer. Trying to hit homeruns is like trying to hold a greased-up football. The harder you try,...

    Exactly. The Mets in recent years have been more than willing to spend the big bucks on the premium talent available. And I can't complain about not wasting money on players who aren't worth the...

    I think the idea was to create a unique ballpark that would NOT be the "boring" or "forgettable" stadium that shea was perceived as by many. They were trying for a quirk, like Fenway or something. ...

    The chances of one of our questionmarks in the rotation becoming a legit #2 are no worse than the odds of Sheets making 30+ starts. If our risks in the rotation work out, then yes, we DO have our...

    I find it amazing that so many people were willing to count on an injury-free year from Ben Sheets, who has a history of it, but are unwilling to do the same for the current squad as a whole.

    So scapegoating is the way to go, huh? Yep, that's productive. I'm not saying that the front office doesn't deserve criticism. They DO. But not to the extent that many here are laying it on them....

    Its not koolaid. As I said before, name one team that could have survived the injuries we had last year. Just one.

    If you think they'll all be injured again, that's one thing. But injuries...

    Just stop it. Please. I'm sorry, but the forum seems to have devolved into one of the worst examples of blind mob-mentality I've seen.

    Again...

    If you think we are currently a 75 win team, then get off the Mets' case about Ben Sheets, becxause NO ONE PLAYER can single-handedly add 15-20 wins.

    If you think Sheets WOULD have...

    There are VERY few players in baseball that can turn a sub-.500 team into a 95-win champion. There may not be ANY. But if there are, I can absolutely promise you that Ben Sheets is NOT one of them....

    With the exception of Cora, that money was ALREADY SPENT. If you keep getting stuck on the things that have already happened, you'll never move forward.

    If those contracts really are as bad as...

    So you wanted us to overpay an injury-prone pitcher who's likely to miss a significant portion of the season (1/4 to a 1/3 or more)? How is that spending money wisely?

    Nevermind he fact that Sheets somehow got $2M MORE than most people thought he had a right to ask for. The problem is that we have too many risks in the rotation already If our risks work out, then...

    Many of us have already been saying things like that. No need to wait for Sheets to sign elsewhere to acknowledge that Sheets is a huge risk. Not getting him might turn out to be for the best.
