I like the move for the NY Mets, Terry Collins knows the Mets players and farm. He will know the weaknesses from day 1. Now they just need to worry about Jason Bay and Carlos Beltran. If those 2 start playing again watch out NL east.

I consider myself a guy who knows way too much about baseball so is it bad that I have no idea who this guy is or is he that much of a small name guy?

Ha! you're more optimistic than me about my own team! Too many question marks this season to hope for any playoff run. Sure you never know, but chances are this year will be more of a quasi-rebuilding year.

Managed the Astros and Angels. He only had one losing season in his career I believe. I don't mind the hire

Collins, 61, is coming off his first season as Mets' Minor League field coordinator, following jobs managing the Orix Buffaloes of Japan's Central League and the Chinese national team in the World Baseball Classic. Posting a 444-434 record in six years managing the Astros (1994-96) and Angels (1997-99), Collins guided his two big league teams to second-place finishes in five of those six years

Now that collins is on board.. we can now focus on the roster!!!

Ideas:

1) Trade OF Beltran

- Astros acquire OF C.Beltran from Mets w/cash considerations(mets eat 13million of 18 owed) in exchanged for LHP W.Rodriguez.

2) Trade for OF J.Upton!

- D"Backs acquire RHP's Francisco Rodriguez(K-Rod; mets eat 8 million of 11.5 owed), Jenry Mejia, and OF Fernando Martinez from Mets in exchanged for OF Justin UPton.

3) Might be a reach.. but trade for Barry Zito!!

- Mets trade 2b Luis Castillo(6million) & Oliver Perez(12million)(both expiring deals) to the Giants for LHP Barry Zito & cash considerations(Giants eat 27million of 54 million owed to Zito; Mets entitled to pay Zito 27 million until 2013).

*think of it like this; Giants eat 45 million; so they save 9 million!

Lineup:

1) Reyes-SS
2) Pagan-CF
3) Wright-3b
4) Bay-LF
5) Upton-RF
6) I.Davis-1b
7) D.Murphy-2b
8) J.Thole-C

Bench:

IF R.Tejada
1b/OF C.Carter
1b/OF N.Evans
OF L.Duda
1b/3b M.Cairo(Free agent signing)
C H.Blanco(resigned)

Rotation:

LHP Santana(projected to be out 1st half of 2011 season)
LHP W.Rodriguez
RHP M.Pelfrey
LHP B.Zito
LHP J.Niese
RHP RA Dickey

Bullpen:

LHP P.Misch
RHP M.Acosta

1.) Why the hell would the Astros want Beltran again?

A. He already dicked them over once and didn't re-sign with them.
B. They're a young up and coming team, they don't want an aging outfielder.

2.) That's not enough to land Upton, especially since K-Rod was in trouble and had health problems last year.

3.) The Giants wouldn't want that garbage contract of Castillo considering they have Freddy Sanchez who's a former batting champ starting at 2B, and not one team in the world will take Oliver Perez even if they offer to pay his entire salary.


The imagination of Mets fans really baffles me sometimes....

he hasn't managed in the big leagues since 1999, when he managed for the Angels, and was sort of forced out by the players that year.

He also managed for the Astros for 3 years, and was fired after I think 96.

He had a bunch of second place finishes, like every year, no playoff appearances.

I think he has been in Japan for the last decade.

It's a questionable call. Could be a good move though.

Hopefully this is a good hire for the Mets. Have always liked that team, hope he's the guy to get them back in the playoffs.

Nah, I'm in the same boat.

Has anyone looked into the possibility that he and DRTRADE are the same person?
