I think many here have forgotten what the term "Mets fan" actually means, or perhaps you've never really experienced it. And if I have to sit here and explain it, then you're totally clueless. You might as well be Yankee fans. My take is that METMANYAK has been a loyal Mets fan since long before most of you have been on this earth. You might disagree with his assessment and his enthusiasm, but don't mock him. Because as a true Mets fan, he's one up on most of you. Let's go Mets.
We all have expectations, its just that some of them are lower then others. By the way, did you see the outfield Atlanta has, or wow look at the pitching Washington has. Hence the expectations, being realistic. Writers last year were pretty much spot on about the Mets. I'm saying middle of pack and thats optimistic!

Mets signed Red Sox Reliever Scott Atchison RHP to a minors deal. He was pretty solid last year before an elbow injury. He says he is throwing pain free after electing to not have surgery and let it heal.
Sox fans loved this guy. Who knows?
My expectations are the most realist , nothing fake about em.
Adding Bourn adds at least 5 wins, and if Wilson pitches close to vintage Wilson he will help out a lot. Probably around an 80 win team with the chance for more or less.
Gio Gonzalez is linked to a PED clinic.. i hope he's found doping
It's going to be tough to prove though with just notebooks as evidence.Hialeah-native Gonzalez appears less specifically, mentioned five times in Bosch’s notebooks, according to the report, including a specific 2012 annotation that referred to an order of “Zinc/MIC/…and Aminorip” for $1,000. It’s immediately unclear which of those substances is banned and what ingredients they contain. According to the report, Aminorip is a muscle-building protein.

Yea, but i would love to see this come to fruition. Gio a cheater would be great news. That rotation would suffer losing a 15+ game winner for a 1/3 of the season. It would be Stras + Zimmerman and an aging/ineffective Haren holding the fort down.
The Mets starters could definitely match up well against the Nats rotation, as I think they do currently anyways. Just add Bourn to the lineup, and breakout year from Duda, and the 2013 Mets can be competitive.
Yes, I was guilty of mocking the poster but I hope it was taken in the spirit it was intended: just a nonsensical remark.
But here's the thing: When you offer an opinion that most feel to be radical and far fetched, you open yourself for ridicule. Early in 2010 i suggested Jose Reyes bat 8th for a while. The very next game, batting leadoff, he got 4 hits and ther entire room had a field day at my expense. That's just how it goes.
The poster set himself up for ridicule by suggesting this team that most of us feel is about a 70-75 win team might actually be competitive.
If he's wrong, he'll take a hit. If he turns out to be right, he'll have the last laugh on all of us. But here's the the thing: I guarantee you there isn't one person in this room who wouldn't mind taking that hit if it means the Mets will win.
