    You mean 2006-2008 right? 2009 was a 70 win campaign unless that's considered giving it the ol' college try.

    Based on what?

    01. The Wilpons were victims of a crime. They deserve fair chance to recover.

    02. Plenty of teams with payrolls in the middle of the pack are competitive. Some even win the W.S.!
    "The 90 wins is about challenge. It's about changing the conversation. It's about framing questions for ourselves as to how we get there. So I stand by the notion that we need to get better, and in doing so we need to set concrete goals for ourselves so that we have sort of specific conversations among ourselves about how we're going to get there." -- Mr. Alderson

    We played meaningful games in September which counts as competing.

    If our farm system wasn't so barren and we actually had some talent at the upper levels, maybe we would have made the playoffs and won a WS...(why we are rebuilding)

    LOL!!! That's Fredball 101, tix sold in Sept = Winning.

    No wonder you're happy with what is going on now!

    We're 'rebuilding' because the owners can't afford to own the team. They can't even a afford to sign a single major leaguer of any description, not even one!!!

    So the 2007-2008 Mets did not compete for a playoff spot?

    How does that have any correlation to me being happy with what's going on right now?

    The Wilpons being broke has a part in our rebuilding, but it doesn't mean that it wasn't a good baseball decision. We needed to build a younger core that would allow us to compete for years to come.

    There isn't going to be a spending spree in 2014. They may spend money on quality players, but if the right ones are not available, SA won't be a buyer. No more Ollie-types, please, and no spending for the sake of spending.

    I'm not asking for a spending spree, but it will be time to spend on a few upgrades.

    Corey Hart is a great target for this team, as would Aaron Hill.

    They competed till September, it's still competing. 2009 is another story. I mean I guess you can say a team competes if they lose 100 games 3-2 but they are still not of championship caliber if they can't find ways to win those games once in a while.

    Hart would give us some pop and he's got a good arm from what I remember of him.
