    How is spliting a 6 game series considered as giving them a hard time? LOL The Mets did sweep a DH but so did the Yanks.

    I do agree Cohen was the best thing that could have happened for the Mets. His deep pockets and business savvy is refreshing change celebrated by all Met fans. I don't imagine too many tears were shed as the Wilpons made their exit.
    So far all the moves they have made have been really good. Cohen is just trying to win the winter, he's setting them up better for the future. I think they were smart to have passed on Bauer and Realmuto Someone should be going to jail for larceney for the deal the pulled of yesterday. It also sounds like they are the favorites for Springer as well

    that deal yesterday not only got them the best SS in baseball it also puts them in the conversation for the best rotation in baseball Is DeGrom/ Thor/Carrasco/ Stroman/ Matz? is that as good or better than SD or LAD

    So far Cohen is making all the smart moves on paper, let's see if they can avoid "Mets" en up on the field .

    He is running the team safely and as a commodity, not as the Yankees Evil Empire.
    He absolutely doesn't care as much about winning as his dad did, thats for sure. Even if they lost money last yr, George would be exploiting the hell out of that situation. When George saw a chance to get a great player or just improve the team he took it. Did always workout great but more often than not it worked out.

You can dream about the how great the yanks prospects COULD be in 2 or 3 years but I am talking about right now and this season .

    I also don’t have the faith in hal to do anything substantial after this . I mean what did he do after seeing his team owned by the Astros in 15 while seeing the mets win a pennant and go to the World Series ? Look what happened to the Yankees in 16 .....


    You're very misguided but we all know that. You seem to think the team with best roster is the better team. I hate to bust your little bubble but that's not how it works.

    So we shouldn't be excited about watching our favorite team play. We all should be just as miserable as you are. Sorry but I'm going to be excited.

    Day, George hated losing. He wasn't always right, in fact it wasn't until he let Stick take over did they Yankees get on track for longer term success, but he had balls and wasn't afraid to go after what he believed was the best available talent.

    Adding a healthy Thor and Corrasco with Stroman and Matz on the back end makes for a very good rotation. Mets have always managed to develop / find good pitching, it's the rest of the game they struggle with.

    There is a distinct difference between critical analysis, reasoned criticism and pissing on everyones cornflakes daily.

    Misery enjoys company.

    Hal certainly is not his father that’s for sure . They can sign the best short stop in all of baseball next off season , it won’t change the fact that the rotation will still be the Yankees’ Achilles heel and that Britton and Chapman will be a year older .

    I don't think he's a bust. I think he just needs the right motivation to pick himself up & play harder.

    That is an understatement . If the AL as a whole wasn’t so mediocre I wouldn’t be convinced that this team as constructed is even a .500 team .
