    The Mets may need to pay off some debt but they bought a few years with a refinancing---the best way to pay it off is to win. The best way to win is to sign both Drew and Cruz, win 92 games or close...

    I say sign them both....I would rather have Cruz's 30 homers than Lagares' contributions and EY gets to back up LF if CY slumps or anyone else gets hurt----it's called depth. As for SS....tejada is...

    Ike needs glasses or contacts. For goodness sake you don't lose your ability to hit breaking pitchers at age 26 unless you have a physical condition change----test his eyes and see that he cannot...

    Imagine a staff by 2016 of Harvey, Wheeler, Syndergaard, Niese and Montero with Gee and Mejia in reserve...deGrom, Mazzone and others in the wings. A pen of Parnell, Black, the two or three...

    Hey Stuna, I thought you don't think I write any posts worth responding to so that is why you dumped my last unique post re free agents. I guess being labeled as a Manager by the website...you did,...

    Similar to the Hubie Brooks story

    Your comments are very well said and a good reminder of the Mets situation in the early 1980s. We had a few young stars, some great pitchers almost ready to make the majors, and some good but not...

    Don't forget about EY

    One of the main points of my post was that the Mets have the advantage of having EY in case we trade Murphy and if Flores is not ready or just plain good enough to play 2b. And if EY plays 2b that...

    Good thoughts. Yet Murphy may be at his highest trade value now and an AL team who could use him at DH periodically and as he ages and loses range [not much to start with] but, as stated, there is...

    Murphy has somehow become a roadblock that prevents EY and Flores to play second and see with low risk if Flores will be a big league hitter---the kid drove in 73 runs in 315 ABs at AAA...anything...

    I've been fairly impressed so far watching Flores play third base in Wright's absence. I'm wondering how the left side of the Mets' infield would be if Wright could have sufficient range to play...

    By the time Byrd is too old to start every day we could end up with an outfield of Flores, Nimmo and Puello with Lagares and a fifth outfielder like EY or Greg Vaughn. But I keep hearing that they...
  25. Flores, Duda, Murphy and Puello...Who Plays Where and When?

    So far Wilmer Flores is looking like he has more range than the reports have indicated but the scouts say he is best if he ends up playing second base...which means Murphy is trade bait. We will get...
