Matt Clark playing very well. Will he get the 1b gig to platoon with Satin, NOOOO. The two big p#&@$#s will get it and stink the joint up again.

Black is the guy AZ wanted in the Chris Owings deal, of course Sandy said no, and I am sure after this Spring they wouldn't take him. Vic Black gets rocked every time out going back to last year. I hope he doesn't make the team over some of much better pitching prospects we have.

Going to be another long year.   Been a fan since 1971.   Lots of bad years but lovable teams.   When management tries to convince you this team can win 90 it feels like someone trying to sell us a used car.  Injuries are part of the game.  No depth here.   For those who think we are better can you explain?


Bullpen weaker.  Starting pitching weaker.  Colon < Harvey.  Young unlikely to surpass Byrd from last year.   Curtis an upgrade.  


This is just not a fun team to watch or root for IMO.


Are we more likely to lose 90 or win 90?

Black stinks.  What is the love affair with this guy?

this mite sound crazy but i think josh satin should lead off, obv besides speed he certainly fits the bill, i think he could give the mets similar #s as matt carpenter from the leadoff spot.  When he starts he's the most logical choice.  On days satin is off you can start ey and lead him off.

All these pains Niese keeps experiencing can't be good.

Can we stop counting on Black to be an important bullpen piece. He is trash.

He has done nothing to earn a spot on the team. I'm starting to wonder if the Montero in the pen talk is due to Black's struggles.

OMG! Is that a joke or I'd he really say that?
