    All things NL East & Around Baseball Part 2

    Let's keep the personal and political discussion out of this thread please. We have a political forum for the latter if you want to talk on that subject.

    Just to show how bad the Mets offense has been. Jed Lowrie would be 2nd on the team in RBIs if he played here with 61.

    Braves just won on a 2 out 3 run homer in the bottom of the 11th. ****. 1 damn out away from a loss on two batters.

    Bring in Theo Epstein. Enough with Sandy Alderson. Didn't like the hire when they brought him back.

    No to Theo. He is responsible for enabling Porter, by not doing anything.

    Also, Sandy wasnít hired to be the POBO. They just didnít find one. So he is assuming the position. I actually think Zach Scott is doing a good job in spite of being decimated by injuries.

    Jury is still out on Scott. Rocker was on his watch. We never got the pitching we needed, which was obvious in May. The deadline was a disappointmenet, unless he saw the writing on the wall for the collapse, but then why trade PCA? Also, while I was okay with him laying some of the injury blame on the players, he should have given credit to those who stepped up while the others were out, and kept the season alive for moves that never came.

    Iím not a fan of anyone in the FO at the moment. I donít know where the blame for Rocker goes, or for the stupid Baez trade, or the fact that thereís no accountability for players going off-plan during rehab. Unless Scott was fighting against all of that, I would clean house and start over.

    As for Theo, I donít care if he ignored Porterís behavior. We know that it wouldnít be allowed today, so whatever. If heís the best guy, hire him. I like that he wants total control, because Iíve been troubled by reports that Cohen doesnít want to make any rash decisions about Rojas, as if it should be Cohenís decision. Thatís not good. If heís gonna be really hands-on, then we may have downgraded from a Wilpon to a Dolan.

    Again, Tanous and Tramuta are responsible for the drafts. PCA is injured with a torn labrum. Scott is responsible for Walker, Loup, May among others.

    If you think e GM and head of baseball operations have no say on who they draft and if they should sign them, then youíre being naive. Scott and Sandy are all over those decisions, they are the ones that make a final say.

    Not really, they donít have the time. And just so we are clear I believe the amateur scouting since Tanous was named the director of amateur scouting has been stellar. The area scouts and cross checkers that he has assembled have been stellar. Thatís why there has been an influx of major league talent plus the Mets have a solid player development program. Since 2011, the Mets have delegated the draft to these group of men.
    Disappointed they drafted Kumar & didnít get him signed but now they have the 11th pick. I expect that tandem to do an excellent job like they have been doing.
