2. May is looking more and more like a bullpen guy (that could change, but he's headed that way...he just can't find strike zone)
3. WE have a young cost controlled centerfielder for years to come...He needs work getting on base a little more but he's only 24.
You must've had studs in your outfield the last few years to find Revere's offense "garbage".

Quite simple Met fans, Sandy is the new M Donald Grant and Citifield is now Sandys tomb. Brought to you by the cheapo, Wilpons.
But you and jomota are right in that we can't assume Ike will default to the player he is when he's doing well. He has to prove he can do that over the course of a full season.
I just like what I see.
"Mr. Martin Tanner, Baritone, of Dayton, Ohio made his Town Hall debut last night. He came well prepared, but unfortunately his presentation was not up to contemporary professional standards. His voice lacks the range of tonal color necessary to make it consistently interesting. Full time consideration of another endeavor might be in order."
Wow. A fellow old timer!
But Sandy and M Donald are cut from different cloths. Sandy is a highly skilled business professional and communicator who has perfected the art of saying nothing while making it seem like something.
M. Donald was just an arrogant rich man who knew he held all the cards.
Simply put, Revere would be the best outfielder on the Mets right now. But that isn't saying much. If it had only taken Gee to get him then I would do it. But I wouldn't trade Gee and Familia/Fulmer/Tapia for Revere. He's not enough of an impact player.
Hell, as bad as our outfield was last year it might even be worse in 2013 since we've already lost our best hitting outfielder, Scott Hairston.
Now THAT's pathetic.
Scott Hairston came out of nowhere these last two seasons. Nothing in his past suggested he would ever hit like he did in 2011 and 2012. I'm betting that he will be the next player to test positive.
