I'm thinking of a new lexicon of common phrases.

1. I don't give a Met!

2. What a Met head!

3. I could give two Mets!

4. Like eating a Met sandwich!

5. Met happens!

Chris Young needs to get benched, he needs to get sent to Vegas..., or even better just released

He has, most of the last 4 years

Also if Wright doesn't turn it around in the second half and finish strong he needs to be put on the table for a possible trade. Tired of the excuses with him. I normally will defend him but I'm finding it hard to do now.

In a perfect world Chris Young would have to give the money back or donate it to a charity.  He doesn't deserve one penny of that 7.25 million.

Sandy said we needed power in the off season. Of, SS, 1B were our biggest needs. Sandy got lucky, a power hitting 1B just happened to be available for a reasonable price. ABREU. SANDY passed. He know has 19 HR,s even though he missed timeonthe DL. Price 8.5 million. We got C Young. even though we all wanted Abreu, Sand you F`d it up again.

I find it confusing when Terry says "Chris Young is trying really hard out there". This is the Major Leagues we can't be giving out trophies to guys for "Trying really hard".

Chris Young - Golden Sombrero, stellar defense in left. I hope TC takes advantage and gets CY in CF tomorrow! Simply the best!

Sandy " We are going to monitor the trade market and think there is a 22% chance we may make an offer on an impact bat, at this point if attendance increases we may just may look at the long island ducks to see if we can bring in someone that can get us to meaningful games in september"

Ya know,here is a horrible thought, maybe it's Us.We are the insane ones to think it's going to get any better. Just having a Twilight Zone/Groundhog Day moment!! Is it Us?? R we crazy for rooting for this Franchise??

ownership/Sandy "we support Terry Collins and consider his job SAFE.


Sandy " Terry you have to play Chris Young every day because we guaranteed him at bats"


Terry" I really think we can turn this thing around, the boys are giving it 100% out there.  Ruben Tejada is my short stop end of story. "

Every year we can, since I was about 12, me and my father go to watch the mets on fathers day. This sucks. I have no choice but to give money to these jerk and watch a horrible game. Baseball, bringing fathers and sons together. Ny mets.. tearing them a part.

Sandy said we SHOULD WIN90 games. No problem, all we have to do is go 60-34 the rest of the way!

Season over folks!

Wheeler is 2-7 in (thirteen) starts the only contender he's pitched against is the Giants. He may be joining d'Arnaud sometime soon.

Sandy does nothing every year to get us over the hump so we can be "sellers" every trade deadline and lower the payroll even more.

I was at the game today and I couldn't take the pitifulness called the Mets. I left after the 5th inning. Wheeler should be at AAA. He is just not cutting it. I'm the Mets and I look into trading him this year.

Chris Young Signing is 100% Sandy's fault. When's he gonna own it and realize he FAILED and he's not going to "Turn it around".

Lot of encouraging signs from Chris Young. He caught a couple of balls cleanly, made it out to the batter's box etc.

The Padres are laughing and joking like they are the Boys Of Summer - and we made them look like that today.  Hahn might as well had been Warren Spahn - what hitting, Mets!

Ballclubs that are serious about making a playoff push do practical personnel moves like that. Especially if they only have to eat a one year contract. The fact that he is stil on the major league roster and not sent down or released speaks volumes of the team's so called financial flexibility. Keeping him here is the product of trade deadline pipe dreams where the mets are sellers once again and crown themselves money ball royalty because they bought low and sold high. The roster is a charade

Believe it or not, most players have inconsistent seasons over a 10 or 12 year period. Outside of injury, he really hasn't. I'm not offering excuses, just saying that most long term contracts accept some inconsistency and decline. Beyond that he can't be put on the table...he has a full NTC and just like Rollins he is NOT waiving that at least not yet. Why do people waste their time with that discussion??

They can't be holding on to Young because of the money. His replacement will make league minimum and is already on the payroll most likely. Cut Young now.

I think he meant, "Chris Young is really trying (our patience)."

@Jerry Colfer Chris Young is a beast out there.  No way you can't have his bat in the lineup consistently.  He is the straw the stirs the drink.

David wright is the least of his problems if this team was 38-30 w granderson red hot and laguares batting 300 u bet wright would be doing better he's a all star player who is probably getting frustrated w the franchise baseball is about energy.

@mets74 @Macacawitz Are they really contenders?  Has anyone picked any of them to win anything?  They're all flawed teams hanging around .500.

@Macacawitz @mets74 Other than Colorado, every other team there has a winning record and are, at most, 3 GB in their respective divisions. So yes, they are contenders.
