The Mets went down in value. That's says all there is to say about ownership. This is NY we're talking about here. The same market that has a team worth $2.5 billion. What a complete freaking joke they have become

Everyone needs to chill..it's ST. Yes the bullpen gave up a lot but it's one game a bad night for them. Gee pitched awesome...we have the pitching. Offensively Ike and Duda are dissappointing but maybe will come around (ducks head) we have some good players wright, grandy, big murp, lagares , and some youth. Half the lineup wasn't even playing. Ok tejada sux but Flores will be up when he doesn't perform in April . Step away from the ledge...

Any chance Sandy just quits after the horrible start cause of embarrassment??? Or is he too dumb to even get that everyone will be making fun of him??

the only way to get through to these owners is for the building to be completely empty! Half empty has not done the trick yet. I love going to a game on a nice summer evening as much as the next person, but I refuse to support these guys who are pretty much laughing at the fans who do show up.everybody says you can"t change the ownership, but they will run like rats of a ship if they realize they can't fool the fans anymore

Granted it's ST, but the worst team in baseball just tuned upon our "pen" for 9 runs in 3 innings.  Sell this team, Fred!

The Mets will be horrible again and wind up with their 6th straight losing season...what gets me is all the  nonsense talk from Sandy and TC about 90 wins.


I don't expect them to say hey folks were going to lose 85-90 games this year...but cut the crap about being competitive and trying to win 90 games.  We know 2014 is a lost year, so don't sugar coat it

Bullpen is in mid season form giving up games, continuing where they left off last season

Q stinks.  Can't believe zero upgrade at SS and 1B this offseason.  Thanks, Fred, Jeff and Saul.  Please sell.

At least Gee looked awesome, Lagares had a clutch rbi single. Bullpen is what it is. Lannan still learning the role so I don't hold it against him, but damn Torres got rocked lol.

And the punchless Q strands runners on second and third to end the threat. Know it's a meaningless game, but you definitely can see that situation playing out plenty during the regular season if this guy is on the squad.

sorry! mets pitching is very bad! mets were winning today 3-0 in the seventh when astros score 7 runs!!

Andrew Brown to me seems like one of those Ryan Ludwick-like late bloomers. Think this guy would produce if given the chance. Still, like the RH power off the bench.

Don't complain about WOR.  At the rate this team is going, next year they'll be on Radio Hofstra with the Islanders.

Awful pen has just let up 7 runs after Gee pitched 6 innings of no-hit, shutout ball.  70 win team if everything breaks right.

@Matt  ummm I hope you realize that the bullpen minus Familia hasn't been good at all this spring

Dont worry after the latest polls of fans in Nyc, it looks like nobody will be going this year. Couldnt even sell out opening day!!!

@Steven Matregrano  and still lost the game cause of the bullpen, people wanna whine about Ike and Duda also the SS position but sleep on the bullpen when in fact thats the biggest problem with this team

ponzies86

@archer41  Bullpen is more of a problem with Ike, Duda and Tejada the Mets still manage to lose games late cause of the Bullpen for past 2 seasons

@archer41  Buck up 'lil camper they're winning 90 games this year, just ask Sandy or Fred.

@archer41 Totally fine with our backup SS not being overly productive...won't harp to much about 1B as it was written on the wall before ST started. Tejada at SS kinda sucks though.

@mikesml  The bullpen is trash even without Lannon, German sucks, Fornsworth is garbage, Torres is up and down at times

Bullpens on any team are usually a crap shoot from time to time. Can we start the season before we go nuts

@steven you know they played the Stros right??? The worst team in baseball. And they just destroyed our bullpen guys

@ponzies86  And I still don't quite see how 2015 is going to be that much different, not at this salary level.  I'm not worried about the starters and that's all that coming up midseason (and next).

@mikesml @ponzies86  Just posting up hes having a good game and to be frank with ya Il take Lagares over EYjr anyday 

crafalko17

@ponzies86 @mikesmlGerman and Farnsworth are garbage, but everyone has their garbage time reliever. German can fill that role. Torres was solid last year so I won't get all worked up over a ST game. Lannan is still learning how to warm-up and pitch out of the BP so No big deal about him walking people.

@Matt  2 years back to back Mets bullpen have been bottom in the MLB nothing new here and if your not concern cause its just ST then braise yourself, I see no different but I hope im wrong

@Steven Matregrano @ponzies86  well listen our starting pitching will hold teams to 3 runs for the most part, its up to the bullpen to hold the lead and last season we had one of the worst bullpen in the MLB and I think our starting pitching had the most No decisions in Baseball

@crafalko17 @Andrew SodergrenI wanted Franklin as well, but I guess the price was too high on him. Think he would be a much better option at SS than Flores, although I like Flores' bat. That said, I would take the defensive deficiciency over the offensive zero sure to be put up by the Tejada/Q combo.

crafalko17

@Andrew Sodergren @crafalko17Agree, though I think Drew is trash, Owings wasn't going to be traded without Thor and I wasn't high on Gregorious, not for Montero so...not sure what coulda happened. If we coulda gotten Franklin for less than Montero what woulda been my pick, but for some reason everyone thinks Flores can play SS so they didn't want him.

@Olerud42 @ponzies86 @Steven Matregrano @mikesml  with bad offense we still had over 15 games lost cause of the bullpen so imagine with a good bullpen how many games this team couldve won last season, We probably talking about maybe the 2nd wild card if our bullpen held up

ponzies86

@Steven Matregrano @ponzies86 @mikesml  dude idc if he was facing little league pitching, Lagares would be the better pick over Eric Young jr anyday, his defense alone is better then anyone in the outfield
