    I love this line: “Outfield is definitely the priority,” a team insider said. “I don’t think we’re going to go in thinking we’re going to bottom feed, at least at this point.” .

    Plenty of time for bottom feeding later.
    no. The Mets could lose Wright and Dickey and we'd still finish ahead of the Marlins. Mets fans are allowed to be pessimistic, but not ignorant. The Marlins will be lucky to get 50 wins this year.

    So based on the Mets track record, they're not going to extend Wright and Dickey, and we'll watch them walk in 2014.

    No, but he makes us better. He would be what Andres Torres was supposed to be and more.

    Now they won't make trades (supposedly) and plan to improve the team through free agency... somehow without spending money.

    Reading about this organization's plans is dizzying. And unfortunately their results don't ever justify their methodology.


    Spindy's interview with Mike showed him up for what he is, a liar, he was all over the place in that interview.

    Mike embarrassed him badly.

    I don't trust anything Alderson says. Last off season he said he was gonna sign Jose Reyes, then he said with the savings we got from not signing Reyes he would use to better the team. Instead he signed garbage players and we got garbage results. Then when the Madoff lawsuit was settle we they said the Mets had money to spend but we didn't. Then they pimped out the franchise to people like Bill Maher and raised 200 million but nothing but signings for hitters that bat .155 and pitchers who arms have fallen off the year before. Boycott the Mets it will force them to sell if no one is in the stands.

    Mets should trade wright and dickey. We as Fans have to understand Wright is good but not a guy that can carry a ball club. Look at his second half numbers last season. They dipped. Dickey's value will never be higher. Trade both. Toronto is looking for a pitcher and wright would be coveted by alot of teams.

    It's ok saying that, but we'll win 60 games.

    We are not going to the playoffs either way. build the team around Harvey and Wheeler. Lets see who we get in these deals. Also in a year or 2 when these young players are coming around hopefully our finances are better and we can sign a couple of veterans.

    And therein lies the problem. Maybe it's not a good idea to give $140 million to someone who plays like an all star for just half a season.

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

    I'm starting to see, as hard as it seems to do, that trading Wright may be the best move for us. We need help at too many positions. I'm going to be honest, if they trade David, I'll probably cry and be depressed for a week. But if the haul is worth it, and makes us better, I'll come around to see that.

    So, they said they would be active in the trade market and not free agency and now they're not expecting to make any trades.

    Da **** is this ****?
