    I agree. I have been watching this team since 1965 and have seen many games, even those when the Mets were known to be the lovable, laughable team. This 2021 team is disgusting with no heart and no...

    This team is loaded with (and overpaying) 5th starters and spot starters/ long relievers at this point. Hopefully deGrom and Thor come back next year as #1 and #2, but we don't have #3 and #4. I...

    come on guys - keep the politics out of this. If someone were to tell you 60 percent of the current team and the team owner were maga trump followers, would you stop following them. I wouldn't.

    Khalil hasn't played much CF with Syracuse which shows that the Mets aren't convinced about him playing there. But he certainly will be one of the RF options for next season when Conforto is not...

    Alonso is the last of the Mets to be moved in my opinion. They can build around him and some pitching and the top prospects. Of course, we are stuck with Lindor.

    In fact if they can get Villar back for 2022 that might be a good move. He and Vientos can work third base. I think the Mets need to move Davis and Dom.

    Then the V and V pair will hold the fort...
