    I never said it was 2 billion dollars from the Picard trustees. I said they were originally indebted to over 2 billion dollars in regards to their loans against SNY, the team, the annual monies lost...

    Yes but there were no guarantees their eventual dues to the Picard trustees would be reduced from that original billion dollars. That was my point. I don't think you are fully aware of the Mets debt,...

    Zobrist would be an amazing upgrade. For those who use advanced stats, he among the top players in the league in terms of value and could certainly hold down the fort at SS for 1 year (+5 DRS, 4.6...

    Yes the money totals are correct but 2011 has nothing to do with his impending FA contract because he wasn't a FA. You continue to talk about his 2012 and 2013 salary like that was the main cause of...

    He's a perennial 5 WAR player making next to nothing this year in terms of MLB salary. The Mets would have to part with a decent piece or two.

    For someone who mistyped the year, you sure continued to make it a point of emphasis.

    No they don't overlap for the convenience of my argument. There are probably a handful of owners in...

    Pedantic or not, he wasn't a FA in 2011 so the Mets still had control of him as of that season and it has nothing to do with his eventual FA contract where he would eventually be paid more than the...

    I made reference to his FA because apparently you weren't aware of when he left based on this previous post.

    He wasn't a FA till after the 2011 season. You're also conveniently leaving out that the Mets financial circumstances were in more significant flux at that time and now Reyes is paid like a Bentley...

    Doesn't change the fact that eventually you have to pay him and pay him a significant amount of money. Reyes from 2014 to 2017 makes 82 million dollars. There's a big difference between that and...

    This metaphor is a stretch, don't you think?

    Of course there is no evidence but you also have no evidence to prove Sandy didn't leave something on the table, either. Why? Because not every...

    Pretty much. Not at that time when their financial situation was in even more dire flux.

    We are talking about it because as fans we want to see it. I don't know if the Mets level of interest...

    No, it was the 86 million dollars owed to Reyes from 2014-2018 they were more concerned about at that time. The Mets financial circumstances aren't as bad now as they were in 2011 as evidence by...

    Common sense would dictate the Mets left other deals on the table than what was reportedly offered for Reyes. Teams don't pass on elite SS at the deadline, even as rentals. I can't prove that but...

    But its not really provable, either way. We know that Reynolds and Plawecki are better compensation now than Mike Olt or Gary Brown but how do we know those were the only offers for Reyes? We aren't...

    The sarcastic response doesn't cover up the ignorance in your original question. Are the Cubs supposed to regulate what Castro does on his free time as well? Is he never allowed to go back to the...

    We can speculate all day why Reyes was or was not traded. If the Mets knew they couldn't afford to re-sign him, they should have dealt him. Say what you want about Plawecki, Reynolds, Gary Brown, the...

    If they got Tulowitzski, I believe they could be as good as any of those teams. The Dodgers are arguably worse on paper than last year, as are the Nationals, and I don't see why the Mets with a...

    No I'm not. Add Tulo to this team and with their pitching staff, they could easily be one of the 2-3 best teams in the NL. They have that type of talent with a piece like Tulo and even with the loss...
