Sandy said to expect "major changes" to the roster this year. Was I just imagining that or did he actually say it? I'm not demanding Josh Hamilton or Zack Greinke or any such thing, but where are the "CHANGES"????
No one should ever go nuts about what doesn't happen at the winter meetings.
Every year people get all psyched for the big events during these meetings but every year it's not as wild as people hope for.
This year is no different. Doesn't mean nothing will happen. It'll just happen later.

Royals wanted both Niese and Wheeler.. oxygen.. get me some oxygen.. prepare the AED.. CLEAR.. zap!
Talk about a heart stopper! OMG! Well I guess if we were the old Mets, we probably would have gotten the deal done with the pitching coach saying " I can fix him in 10 minutes"! Maybe its better we don't hear about these remarks.
Thank god no one bit.

They were discussing Niese or Wheeler and not Dickey.

I like Murphy, but can we move Murphy for an outfielder and have Wilmer Flores fill in at 2B?
Another Winter Meetings goes by without the Mets achieving anything.
Marty a no show all week long during the meetings. As soon as they end he comes out in full force.
If they want Niese + for Myers, why wouldn't we do it? I'm pretty sure they asked about Wheeler and the Mets said no.
I hope we can get some cash from the Tigers for the guy we drafted for them in the rule V. Take that money and throw it into a contract for Ludwick. Trade Dickey to TOR for JPA, Gose, and Syndergaard.
I don't love JPA or Gose, but Syndergaard is a nice arm to add to the stable and it doesnt appear we are going to get a Wil Myers or d'Arnaud for Dickey and we have major holes to fill. Gose had 34 steals in AAA last year and can be a Michael Bourn type in center with good defense and good speed at the top of the lineup and JPA adds some pop to the lineup, even if his OBP is awful. Getting him out of the AL could help though. And I love Ludwick, hes got nice power and is a solid enough OF that he is 10 times better than what we have now.
