    I see similarities between the two players.

    Let's face it, many of the new faces on the team more than likely, will not be on the team by July 1.
    He was signed to play in Las Vegas.

    Unfortunately for Brown and most of his 2013 teammates, what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas.

    I know it, but I took the liberty he'll make the 25-man roster, due to the fact of our available talent pool.

    As it stands, this guy has a very good shot to make the team out of ST. Unless, I suppose, we continue to operate under the delusion that Lucas Duda deserves to be anywhere near a Major League ballpark.

    Payroll down from $142M to about $95M, 7-8 large contracts expired, only one left, and still they won't sign a major-leaguer and ARE still shifting money over to next year.

    But, the Mets are going to spend big next year oh yes they are.

    'Talent pool' might be a misnomer.

    Who do you want them to sign this year? Seriously.

    You may be right about next year and the Wilpons as a whole, but for this year...who do you suggest they should over pay for?

    Just because I don't want them to spend much or at all this offseason (I wouldn't mind bringing back Hairston for a reasonable contract)...doesn't mean I am a Wilpon apologist.

    Just trying to give you a different perspective, Mcfly....you can call me Doc if you want.

    Exactly. What has happened and will happen this off season conveniently fits his biased view. However, that doesn't mean it is the wrong move or that he is right.

    I want to see a response to the above question. Who would you have them sign this off season?

    Yeah I had to choose, I'd much rather give this guy 500 AB, than waste them on Duda. Duda has shown he's a dud and can't play the OF.

    This is actually a great point. Even if one concedes the Wilpons will never spend to make this team better, it doesnt change the fact that it is wise for them not to invest heavily this season on stop gap players.

    But the converse is true: That they are choosing not to invest on stop gap players doesnt mean they will invest in more expensive hole-filling players.

    It's sort of a variant on the broken clock theory: Just because your clock happens to be telling the right time this instant doesnt mean the clock isn't broken.
