    Like everything else this man has always touched, he goes through motions, kicks tires and then doesn't act at all. He is the slowest moving front office exec in history and he is getting worse the...

    What is so Mets-like would be if they "elevate" Robinson Cano to player-manager. Heck, they need to pay him anyway so they might as well get something out of him. So we have that drunkard Scott...

    They could hire a manager and no one else. That kind of tells us that the dimwit that got the DUI charge will still be interim GM and Sandy will still be running things in his slow, methodical way...

    We also don't know what vesting provisions Beane has in his current contract with Oakland. Knowing how Oakland has to pinch pennies, Beane's ownership interest just might have some very "tight"...

    Hey, nothing wrong with a little competition between Vientos and Baty. We know that Baty is a pure third baseman, but Vientos is not. It looks like Vientos has tremendous power - has been compared...

    Cohen paid $2.4B (reportedly) for the Mets. He in no way just gives $240M to a POBO. Maybe there is some vesting at maybe $10M per year that becomes part of the POBO's contract. Also, the POBO...

    Sign Castellanos if he opts out of his contract with the Reds. He is a RF / 3b and a right handed hitter. He can replace Conforto in RF if Khalil Lee doesn't cut it out there or he can be the...

    The lefty vs. righty in the starting rotation isn't all that important. Sure you want your opponent to see a different pitcher - not a clone of the last guy but that can be done in other ways. ...

    How about Dwight Gooden - from high A ball to MLB, then ROY in that same year. Not saying that the Alvarez is that for these Mets, but they can live with him continuing to learn hitting if he has the...

    Look at Judge's AAV - not the full contract. How much are the Yankees on the hook for now and who are they losing to free agency this year? They probably are close to but not over $200M AAV now. ...

    Wishful thinking perhaps but as a long suffering Mets fan (since 1964) I can still dream. But what that means more than anything is the Mets will likely need a catcher to spend about half the time...

    It could come down to an OR decision - Correa or Baez or Bryant or someone else. I don't see Cohen overeating at the buffet when this team needs pitching also.

    The bullpen ought to be ok but they do need another closer - Diaz is ok if not overused. And Loup needs to be re-signed.
