Sandy and his crew make more than 10 million/year to cut payroll. I'd like to see one of his moves warrant that

We need a coaching staff with some cache!

I haven't seen any Met player that has " developed" on the major league level under this regime.

Why do players have to go to AAA to figure things out?

Doesn't make sense!

Even still 7.125 mil a year fora lifetime .220 hitter was a bad contact anda bad decision

CY wax 7.125 mil.  Cruz signed for 8 mil

Could have had Nelson Cruz and his 26 home runs but instead we saved a few bucks and got Chris Young and his .200 batting avg.

Seasons over 10 games under..now what do we do?..here's a few suggestions..Fire Sandy and Terry..hire a GM who has a clue..so we can sell at the deadline..sell who?..anybody other than Matt Harvey..who wants our players?..and this time rebuild the right way

Abreu isn't really a PH....and this is a tough assignment off the bench

Hopefully the Mets will be Young free in 2015

I was listening to the radio and they were talking about the roberto alomar trade and how he sucked here, but at least management was making an effort at that point right

does Torres need to use the bathroom or something?  Why did he throw that so quickly?  He had plenty of time...

Torres was a great Sandy pick-up.  How did that happen???

is this a 100 Loss squad? I really feel it might be as patched up as it is.

If the players are playing hard and TC is doing a great job then what the heck is wrong lol

Time to sell..No Thor call up per TC...not much to look forward to the rest of the reason

Looks like another loss..when you get 10 games below 500..you are a awful team..but Sandy says we're close lol

It says 106 listening...but I think it is like those confidence survey's they have,  They just make up the numbers and %'s...

The best part is the reason.

The reason they went for CY was because he could play CF if lagares sucked.

They didn't want a LF like Cruz. They wanted a CF.

@brrrandooo Well, Steve Phillips would come back i'm sure...He wasn't the greatest GM but at least he understood WHERE he was the GM...

37-47...need much more than 2 bats

I respect your optimism but this team is 5-6 significant pieces away from just trying to be respectable. It is an awful team

Call him up? He hadn't gotten out AAA batters yet.

And Terry is doing a great job blah blah blah

You also got to think why the hell would Nelson Cruz want to play in citifield ? Guy has 26 home runs bc he is playing in Camden yards. Did I mention the mets suck and no one wants to play for them. Also they are cheap

@sandybgone  I honestly don't even know why I responded to "her".  Sometimes it's just annoying to hear people constantly peddling that propaganda.  Nelson Cruz signed on February 22.  He was never available to the Mets for 1 year @ $8mil

For $40 m over three years, yes the probably could have had him. But I guess CY was a better value.

On the assumption you get the right pieces for the following year. That has been a major problem with this organization over these last 4 years

Yes but nobody was there. $40m might have done it but we will never know. He might have preferred $40m to $8m or whatever he got.
