What is Wrights contract?

I truly believe that this team resembles a AAA team in the minors and even the so called top prospects are not that good to compete in the major league system. What you see now is what your going to see in the future......no doubt about it. This is it Mets fans! A shame. Very sad that we watch our team get blasted almost every night from weak teams as themselves. 


You have to be a a**ho*e to  buy tickets to see this crap. 


I don't ever want to hear about David Wright in my lifetime in being the face of the franchise.....he is probably the reason we are in fourth or fifth place and to stay there.

matt please write an article about how the wilpons suck and how we are doomed till they sell. this is really the common belief in the mets fan community. so maybe you should at least represent the fans, being that this was once a fan blog. true fans don't work in PR for the people that are dooming the very franchise they supposedly support.

this lineup is so friggin ugly. 


the two guys they spent money on are like .200 hitters, and these guys are batting 1st and 2nd. jesus.


than david wright, who is ok but overrated, fine


then the next five are too boring and sucky to even write about.



if any of you reading this buy tickets to this crap show, you are my enemy. you are enablers. ENABLERS!

Even if the Mets wanted to spend money, do you want Sandy spending it.

D'arnaud easily worst player in the bigs.

Plawecki is the answer.  He will be up by end of the year. He's the real deal.  You'd have to say the Blue Jays got the best of the Dickey trade

building a team Sandy's way, takes about 8-10 years to compete. Mets need to spend on big bats Jose and Nelson would've been perfect for this team

d'arnaud is a major disappointment.

Omar was better than Sandy.  The problem is the owner couldn't afford the team he wanted to build.

should've spent the money on Jose Abreu and Nelson Cruz! Omar would've made that move in a heart beat!

Noah Syndergaard is being removed from the game in Las Vegas after injuring himself covering home plate after a wild pitch.

In case you missed it - Syndegaard down.  Removed from the game after an injury delay.

can someone remind me who the idiot was on tuesday that said this team was "really close" to being good, and also the idiot who was sure that they would win the next two?  i don't feel like looking through the threads and i'd like to laugh at them properly...

To add injury to insult, Synergaard left the game with "a shoulder or arm injury"

Swept by the cubs.. syndergaard hurt on a non throwing play.. I start to believe this franchise is cursed more and more every day

This may even be too much for the incompetent, debt ridden Wilpons. No one goes to the game, the cable station debt is staggering and they have to know viewership is suffering. It seems like Sandy's gambles have not paid off. At some point there needs to be accountability. It has been many years of giving Alderson the benefit of the doubt, but we now sit with a payroll less than $80 mil.

It is not his fault that he could not spend and did some good things, but you can't fire the team or owners so he needs to take the hit. CY, EY, Lannan, Farnsworth, Valverde and the missing SS have us angry and confused.

@eavdr10 you know how many arguments i got into after d'arnaud was acquired telling people they were counting some unhatched chickens? omg, people thought we acquired Posey II. don't get me wrong it was a good trade to get syndergaard, but d'arnaud was the one most were initially excited about. fools. all of them.

D'arnaud couldn't hit puberty. He's garbage. I gave him enough time.

@ponzies86 What makes you think a like drive hitting HR hitter like Cruz would ever agree to play half his games in the cavernous Citi Field?
