i would rather trade Thor and Plawecki for Stanton then Wheeler and Donuts. Noah Syndergaard is a better prospect then Zack Wheeler but Donuts is a better catcher then Plawecki. i want the guys who are in the biggs now more then guys who are a year away. but all this is a moot point if the Mets can't extend Stanton for the 10 year 200+ million dollar deal he is going to get on the open market. trading those guys for just 2 or 3 years of Stanton is illogical.

Forgot one.

Can someone ask Sandy just how long  his rebuilding process and why 4 years is not enough.


In less time than that, the Marlins put a WS team together that didn't work, traded most of the high end players for prospects, played those prospects last year and now have a better team than the Mets in 3 years.


Remember the Braves after 2006 when they couldn't compete with the Mets? how long after that were the Braves back on top?

1. How is continuing to play Chris Young a better option than playing den Dekker, Brown or Campbell?

At least with them, there is hope. Chris Young is a nice guy but he looks done.


2. If selling tickets is important, then improve the team and fans will come back. It doesn't work the other way around because of the history of broken promises by both Sandy and Freddy.


3. The Mets already know what they have in Tejada which is a player they wanted to replace. So why not give Flores the rest of the year to find out what he can do? Ditto for den Dekker.


4. Why are the Mets not playing Puello at Vegas? How exactly does a player get evaluated or better by riding the pine?


5. Can the long suffering fans expect any trades before the trade deadline to improve this team or is it another wasted year situation? Are there any more wash-up players ready to retire coming to the Mets? I hear Julio Franco is playing baseball again.

Can someone that has access to the Met brass ask them what they plan on doing about the complete and utter incompetence of one Chris Young?  A blind man can see that this man does not know how to play baseball!!!!

How about if Sandy will ever do something to improve our offense.
