    My gut says Cohen will believe they can win next year; ideally Alderson makes the best, smartest move for GM, rather than the safest, and he knows enough to let him/her execute a plan.
  2. I doubt that Cohen, once approved, will give a...

    I doubt that Cohen, once approved, will give a **** about what the other owners think. He'll likely tell Alderson and his GM his big picture goals -- for instance, blow it up or be aggressive and go...

    Agree that we'll need to make some trades, especially where we have redundancy or square pegs. However I think Peterson is a pitcher who knows what he's doing, will make his own adjustments, and get...

    So much to be miserable about, but there have been some positives. Dom, Guillorme, Giminez, Cano still hitting, Conforto emerging, Peterson a reliable arm, Diaz showing signs, deGrom as dominant as...

    Exactly. Smart baseball move but also a smart political move. Adding a respected MLB entity will expedite owner approval for sure.

    Conforto looks like he's setting up differently this year, holding the bat a bit lower and away from his body before the pitch.

    I'm curious how different organizations approached this. How each essentially managed their most valuable future assets this year is the difference between collective professional growth and a lost...

    Does anyone have any intel on what some of our top (non-taxi squad) prospects have been doing in lieu of playing games this lost summer? Baty? Crow Armstrong? Allen? Mauricio, etc? They must be...

    I can't find a definitive date for when FA 2020 starts. Usually it's about a week after the WS. Might not be a big deal now because Newsday is reporting that MLB might vote earlier than the late...

    Does anyone know when teams will be allowed to start bidding on free agents this post season? I'm curious about that start date in relation to the date that Cohen gets approved (or not) by the...

    Abysmal starting pitching. Tenacious offense. Can't sustain no SP 3 out of every five days. But this lineup is deep and fun to watch.

    Yes. I was thinking they should have done it as early as last spring. I was wary because of his ligament issue, but in retrospect why not.

    Nice win. I was wary of Lugo joining the rotation, in part because of his lingering arm injury, and because he was so valuable in the pen. Now I'm wondering if we made a huge mistake not converting...

    You said it's ridiculous. I disagree. It's voluntary. Who knows if any of this will help, but I give credit to those who are willing to be cautious just in case. Harper without a mask getting in the...

    Today's baseball player wears more forms of protection than at any time in the history of the game. Voluntarily wearing a thin piece of cloth to help prevent others and themselves from getting sick,...

    Multiple outlets and his family say complications from dementia and Covid. I imagine that the lingering effects of Lyme, which he suffered greatly from years ago, was also a factor.

    Seaver made me want to approach whatever I did in life as if it is an art. He was passionate, cerebral and driven but he approached the game with so much joy, and elicited even more from it.

    A lot of pluses. Conforto, Marisnick, Ramos, Castro, Rosario and Peterson, who knows how to pitch.

    When is the last time a Mets reliever through 9 of 11 pitches for strikes? Nice mop up inning for Castro.

    I'm guessing the only reason Peterson isn't in the rotation is they're being cautious because of age and coming off injury. Wonder if this gets him back in it or they want to play it safe with him...
