    Knock it down to say 130 games.

    Then Robinson has 8
    Vinny Castilla, Gary Gaetti, Wade Boggs, and Ron Cey each have 6 seasons, and another 13 players have had 5 seasons.


    Third basemen just do not age well, and they get hurt rather easily.
    I dont think they should or would move David to 1B as his primary position, but as he ages they could spot start him at first to get more games out of him.

    I think honestly he ends up in LF at some point with Wilmer Flores and Aderlin Rodriguez eventually coming.

    He is athletic enough to play out there, it's just a matter of making the transition.

    Good deal for the Mets.

    Its team friendly enough...a fair deal for both sides.

    They needed to do this to stay relevant.

    Rebuilding in baseball is overrated. The Mets need to resign Dickey, sign a decent right OF or two for relatively cheap, and somehow find a way to improve their last ranked bullpen.

    The one thing they do have is a strong starting rotation if they resign Dickey. That is something to build from.

    From Saint FanGraphs.

    Goes with another article Cameron wrote on losing on purpose...Two pieces I agree with, though the "don't lose on purpose" one moreso than this, but also this.

    I'm glad they resigned him but in reality it doesn't make the team any better next year. We still don't have a single starting MLB outfielder on the team. Catcher is also very weak unless Thole somehow becomes the player he was expected to be.

    When you have a top pitching staff in the major leagues and still lose 88 games it means your bullpen sucks, defense sucks and you can't hit at all.

    Worst bullpen in the league last year.

    That is the main source of the Mets issues right now.

    Resigning Wright was a must if you have any plans to compete next season.

    How is the Bull Pen the main issue. There are 3 young pitchers who are ready for the majors in Mejia, Familia and Edgin. It's just a matter of are the Mets brass willing to put Mejia and Familia in the pen.

    The Mets do not have an outfielder capable of starting in the Major Leagues. Duda can hit (minor league track record/2011) but can not play OF at all!
    His defense def affected his offense last year. He needs to be traded to a team that needs help at 1B/DH.

    Kirk has potential to be a very good 4th outfielder. Very good defense but lacks power for the corner and has decent speed but not fast enough to be play a great center field.

    We had the worst BP in the league by far last year.

    Last year, our BP was the main issue.

    Can't compete with the worst BP in the league.

    All 10 playoff teams last year had strong pens.

    Offense wasn't anything to write home about last year, but the source of last year's issues was the pen.

    Plus, we didn't have a "top tier" rotation last year either.

    It was a very good rotation, but not "top tier". Maybe if Harvey pitches well for a full season, they bring back Dickey, and Wheeler gets called up...then maybe their rotation will be "top tier".'

    But, I have a feeling the Mets might trade Dickey while the iron is hot. My emotions are mixed on this idea.

    Either way, resigning Wright was a must for the now and the future if this team wants to compete.

    As I said Bull Pen was a big issue last year. Yet going forward they do have arms that can step in.

    They don't have any outfielders capable of starting in the major leagues.

    Ok fair enough.

    I disagree that we had a top rotation last season though.

    The Mets barely had a top 10 rotation...arguably. I think based on starting rotation ERA the Mets actually ranked 11th best in the MLB. They did rank higher in other stats like WHIP and K:BB, but factor in the pitcher friendly ball park and that they play in a league with no DH....

    If the Mets did have a top 10 rotation last year, it was barely.

    My definition of a top rotation is when their rotation is so good that it can carry them to the playoffs even with issues everywhere else...or can at least carry them to 85 wins or something like that.

    The Mets rotation was not at that level. Dickey was phenominal, Niese was very good, everything after that was mediocre at best.

    Maybe if Harvey pitches well for an entire season and Wheeler gets called up and lives up to the hype...and we bring back Dickey....Then maybe we will have one of those nasty rotations...maybe.
