    Where Alderson's words come from are where the farts come out as well.

    Hyun-Jin Ryu a 25 year old lefty out of Japan.

    If the Mets want to build through the rotation, this guy can be a big piece to the puzzle.

    Wheeler
    Harvey
    Niese
    Ryu
    Familia
    Mejia
    Gee

    That is a lot of young pitching and this kid's a lefty

    He can say so much, but means so little of it at the same time.

    Truly a puppet.

    Sorry to drop dookie bombs on your parade but that requires money and the Wilpons will just have enough to meet payroll every month as is.

    13.5 Million dollars in committed salary in 2014 to this point.

    With David and arbitration eligible guys look at payroll to be at 40 million or so.

    That's without Dickey who i think they will trade this offseason, and even with Dickey you are still talking 50 million or so in payroll.

    If they don't have flexibility at 40-50 million dollars in payroll, the Wilpons need to get out of the baseball business plain and simple.

    They will have the flexibility, but again the will to spend big will not be there. The Mets are just not going to spend on a guy that will cost 100 plus or 5+ years. They will spend on guys that will sign for 3 maybe 4 years tops.

    Well i'll take anything at this point, just no more offseasons where our prime acquisition is Andres Torres.

    I want big market spending too but if we are going to have to live with these Wilpons (because Bud won't throw them out) at least some spending is better than no spending.

    Spending 30-40 million dollars in an offseason in annual salary between 2 or 3 players would seem like Met fans hit the lottery at this point.

    Why do we keep thinking that 2014 will be a significant year for acquisitions vis free agency? Yes Bay and Santana's contracts will be off the books BUT most of that $40million will have most likely already been Re-allocated to Wright and Dickey's contracts and while there may be $10-12Million left over, it's still not enough UNLESS payroll goes up, which until we put a team capable of competing at the major league level and ticket sales increase...won't be happening.

    I'm just saying...DON'T expect any significant change in the near to mid-term(1-5 year) future.

    More like 1 -2 years tops.

    They're gonna keep payroll as low as they can while winning 80 games.

    Trade RA? Ok, that's still over $30M spent with TWO players paid for....

    It does not add up at all.

    If you look at FA 2014, it's garbage, and that pool of talent will only diminish further as teams trade away or resign their soon-to-be FA's.


    This time next year, they'll be spinning 2015 as the year we contend.
    Honestly I think the Wilpons are planning to spend again when that real estate development on the poisoned land they hijacked is ready to open. Supposedly 2016 if lawsuits don't stop it. They'll probably start spending a little in advance of that.

    They spent from around 2004 to 2008 because they were starting SNY and opening a new stadium and they needed to generate interest. They didn't spend the extra for a farm system or a winner, but they spent enough for "meaningful baseball in September". My guess is they'll do it again to juice attendance and drive customers to their new super mall.

    They're probably hoping all of us will forget this whole era, and what kind of scum they are.
