Drafting Nimmo in front of Hernandez is one of those things that will always leave a "what if" feeling.  I was wondering, was Nimmo even on anyone's radar such that the Mets had to draft him in the first round?  They couldn't have gotten him in the second?  just wondering.  The absolute most sickening thought is that the Mets lost their first round pick for signing KRod and that pick basically became Mike Trout, who the Mets supposedly knew well and brought in to talk even though there was no way he would be around to draft.

Yeah, got to love a split squad day where you get crushed twice instead of just one blow out...

@hashburry  That's why I agree with Sandy being careful in the free agent market.  When you sign a Jason Bay, you pay the additional stupid tax of losing your top pick.  Do it every year and you will miss out on a star.

@hashburry  It must be a miserable existence, keeping track of such things. I feel sorry for you.

@metfan  who cares?  wins or losses are meaningless since games are not played like real games from offense or pitching.  What is important to note is Mazzoni played himself off of the long shot chance of making the team, German is not looking like last year and is also heading to AAA right now,  

C Young is looking good to this point.  EY is off to a good start and Kirk is also looking better going the other way with pitches for the bench,


We are also getting a 1st hand view of how bad we are at SS.  


I would not call the Marlin game a blow out anyway.  Is was a comeback that went extras until German blew up.  Plus most of the guys in were minor leaguers.  


W/L in preseason are not important since teams do not pitch or make up lineups or play full games in the same way as they do in real games.

@Opti-Mets-tic @hashburry  Making an observation based on well known fact.  My existence is fine.  Think about the fact you basically attacked me for wondering what could have been.  No need to feel sorry for me.  You just keep being you. Optiwhatever.

 @Phil Bellino  Certainly not writing him off.  Not looking to get into a debate with you, but all I wrote was that I wondered of the Mets could have taken him later in light of his lack of exposure, had the foresight to draft Fernandez and have a win win scenario.  This knucklehead Opitmet seemingly only can interpret things the way he wants and for some reason takes it as some kind of affront that I dared to imagine a Met team with Harvey, Fernandez, Wheeler Syndergrass, et al.  in the rotation and Trout in the outfield.  And yet again, he doesn't understand the use of the word narcissist.  It is not self righteous.  It is enamored or obsessed with oneself. 

In any event, I do hope Nimmo turns out to be solid, and the Mets can some how field a team that can score some runs.  But hey, they can always have Strawberry day.

I was just glad to see Trout do so well, so fast. He was the high school  Athlete of the year in our local paper just 3 years ago. .Such a nice and humble kid.

Although, to see him on my favorite team would have been nice too.


@hashbury

Also, don't write Nimmo off so quick. He's only a couple years out of high school (even though he didnt play high school b-ball) and showing great potential in his first year of professional ball.

Mets didn't Draft reyes, they signed him. You've lost all credibility.

Also don't understand your point. It's well known the mets loved trout.

@Terry Jacoby @Opti-Mets-tic  Sad? I go "back" to them, because they were my FIRST favorite guys. I was only six years old in 1986. I "go back" to them, because I loved it back then. 1986 was our last championship.

To say "it's sad" to think back to a championship 28 years ago is wrong, in my opinion. I think there are 30 teams, and to say it's sad that the Mets haven't won a championship, is like saying it's sad because as a New York team, we are entitled to championships. That's wrong. Yes, there are other teams, that have been operated much, much better than the Mets have been. But, they EARNED their titles, and the Mets haven't. That's not sad.

All I am saying, is I think the approach you guys are taking, is actually the "sad" one. I prefer to reflect back on happy times, finding things to piss and moan about, is what seems "sad" to me. Going back to the "etc": Harvey, Murphy, and our Farm is now top 5. That's pretty fun, (not sad) too.

@Terry Jacoby @Opti-Mets-tic  Well you know, he's an optimist.  Plenty of history to support that.  But hey, he can feel sorry for me for pointing out some facts that I thought were both interesting and, to me, somewhat disappointing.  But I guess I can still daydream about the careers of 2 players that had their Met careers cut short by injury and drugs, and another player that left town for a better offer in his prime.  And I'm pretty sure Reyes wasn't drafted.  Also, I'm 100%sure our Opti fan has no idea what "narcissistic" means.  I feel sorry for him and his limited vocabulary and reading comprehension skills. Yeah, that's an attack.

@Opti-Mets-tic  I'm curious who are the etc, etc, etc...you realize they draft every year. It's pretty sad you have to go back to Strawberry and Gooden to find good ones. Their draft record blows. No way to defend it.

@hashburry @Opti-Mets-tic  Attack? I didn't attack you, I just said it's gotta be miserable to seek out, and look for things like that. There were like 12 or 13 other teams that passed on Jose Fernandez in that draft. To notice that the Mets passed on him, is narcisistic. We have also drafted guys like Darryl Strawberry, Doc Gooden, Jose Reyes, David Wright, etc., etc., etc. Those are the ones worth spending your time thinking about. That's why I feel sorry. What is the point of being a fan, if only to find things that you can feel bad about?
