    You Know For As Crappy As This Team Has Been The Last 2 years....

    I know it's been longer than 2 years but just using that time frame as part of my point.

    Saying that, it's nice to see all these individual accomplishments during that time.

    Jose Reyes wins the batting title in 2011.

    RA Dickey wins the Cy Young in 2012.

    Johan Santana throws the first no-hitter in Mets history and David Wright breaks the club record for hits and RBIS.

    Although the team has laid an egg, it's been fun to be a Met fan at least from that perspective.

    That no-hitter was just awesome. I have to say, that made last year so much better. Something I'll never forget.

    I'm with you on that one. I know we should always want to strive for a World Series, but that No hitter was just awesome!

    As bad as this team has been they are 2 outfielders and a closer away from being a really good team.

    Gordon and Melky in the outfield with a full year of familia, edgen and mejia in the pen and we could easily be a 90 win team.

    The off-season has just started. Delirium has set in early. We heard similar comments from others last year about a similar plan, but with slightly different names. We lack high quality, impact regulars. The names you mentioned are meaningless. One has signed already with Toronto the other is staying in K.C. or traded to another city.

    You must like our defensive-challenged, singles hitting catcher,
    Josh Thole. He is strictly backup material. Not a catcher who will lead a staff to the WS.

    Real world this is a 4th place team in our division going nowhere. Thank you Miami for cornering the last place market......

    They need a lot more than that. If that's all they needed they would have won 80 or more games.

    Also fans always fall into this trap, thinking that filling a couple of holes gives you a playoff team, it just does not work that way, because you're assuming that everyone repeats what they did last year. We have a team with no depth on the diamond, and, and is short of 4 starters. FOUR.

    The BP was a disgrace, replacing fat Frank doesn't give you a playoff team, how do we know how those three kids will perform.

    This team is light years away from competing, we'd be a last place team but for the Marlins who are also being run in a sickening manner.

    MLB is a disgrace right now IMO. It's no wonder football is leaving it in the dust.

    What ****?? I compared the accomplishments to fine jewels. I was thrilled to attend RA's 20th win, as fine as any jewel retrieved from the Titanic. But the damn ship sank. Read the frickin' post before making accusations.

    The tone of your post suggested that you were poo pooing the player's accomplishments because it doesn't mean much in relation to the team's struggles.

    If i misconstrued your point, that was my fault, but it's easy to be cynical about accolades like that when the team sucks.

    Yes, I admit it. I'm envious.

    Perhaps a once in a lifetime experience.

    Beyond my terrible Dickey movie poster, I agree.

    There have been some gems the past two years that made them enjoyable. The second half sucked in 2012, but there were still reasons to be excited. Matt Harvey making his debut and dominating. Dickey's Cy Young quest. Santana had the no-no in the first half, and Wright was on a MVP-trek.

    2011 had Reyes, Dickey battling through injury, and flirting with .500. It wasn't terrible, but things could have been much, much worse.
