    These threads are depressing. Posters censor themselves from even thinking about first rate players, or second rate players for that matter.

    For what it's worth (nothing!) Andruw Jones has already signed to play in Japan.

Olivo averages 14 50 .240 in a typical 400 AB season...That's a huge improvement over what we have had the last few years. Re-sign Hairston and maybe we can limp through with Niuewenhuis in center.

    Ross or bust. They really need to start making some deals already.

    I can see them signing a guy like Ryan Raburn. He will cost nothing and has had some success in the past.

    And yes, it's depressing.

    According to my calculations, current payroll is about $30 million under last year's, so there's money to invest.

    Catchers: none of the above. We need to trade for a decent, young C. My choice-Hector Sanchez (SFG) but Arencibia looks more accessable.

    Infielders: Personally, I'd resign Ronny Cedeno or Ryan Theriot for the bench. But I'd also give Chone Figgens a try on the cheap.

    Outfielders: I'll get killed for this, but if we don't get a good CF in a Dickey trade, I'd stretch and sign Michael Bourn. (5 yrs/$80 million - $10 in 2013, then $16-$17-$17-$16 with a $4 million buyout option for 2018) Then, Hairston, of course, and Nyjer Morgan.

    Starters: Resign Pelfrey for $4 million, and Jair Jurrjens & Dallas Braden (if healthy) to incentive based contracts.

    Relievers: Matt Lindstrom and Peter Moylan

    Just curious - if the Wilpons stick all or most of that money in their pockets, will you finally admit winning games isn't their top priority?

    They'll spend the next month debating what to do with Dickey and when they finally do all the expensive FA's will be gone. It's part of the off-season plan "We didn't feel the players available would help us much". Ya see?

    Nyjer Morgan - maybe the best affordable option there. He'd still only be arb-eligible in 2014, so you could probably give him 1 year with a team option (and maybe a vesting clause).

    There is nobody on that long list of free agents that will help the Mets win anymore than 74 games again in 2013. Might as well tank and give the youngsters a crack to see what they have to offer this franchise moving forward.

    I guess... I don't know if we realize the depths we've reached here with this club. I'm a fan since '83, have seen the good, bad and ugly but I don't remember them looking at the scrap leftovers to fill out important positions like catcher, left field, center field, right field as well as as many as 5 relief pitchers possibly.

    I mean the OF joked about in Met lore of Agbayani, Payton, Bell, Hamilton and Timo would have us all practically salivating right about now.

    Sad.
