    I think we can all be excused though for our negative perception of the Wilpons. They've done precious little over the years to inspire confidence.

    Its OK if the team is willing to spend through the back end bolus of the contract but the Mets will not do that. They will use it as a reason not to spend.

    What exactly is consistency? The same numbers, or numbers consistently within a range? In baseball, the latter, equates to consistency.
    "The 90 wins is about challenge. It's about changing the conversation. It's about framing questions for ourselves as to how we get there. So I stand by the notion that we need to get better, and in doing so we need to set concrete goals for ourselves so that we have sort of specific conversations among ourselves about how we're going to get there." -- Mr. Alderson

His voice lacks the range of tonal color necessary to make it consistently interesting. Full time consideration of another endeavor might be in order."

    The problem is that they're only willing to spend on players who make cents, not dollars.
