I would really really like to see them trade TdA.....we don't lose anything with Recker .... and we gain some power and a better arm..... maybe we could get a half decent SS for him

The only players I keep are Niese,Gee,Recher,Dice K,Murphy.Trade everyone else.Fire Mgr and staff, GMTeam  is no good for another 10 years.Stuck with Wright and Granderson contracts for 4 years.Wright is Jeter without porch

We need Reyes back... and Wright to start hitting for power... and the pitching and hitting to both do their jobs in the same game.... and a closer... and a new manager.... and a new GM.... and Grandy to come around..... and to fire our hitting coach.... and to lure Piazza out of retirement (ok not really, he's just my favorite player ever).... and......I'm tired of typing... someone else pick up where I left off.....

I really hope Gee continues to pitch well so this series isn't a complete bust

We have lost every game since laggards has been leading off.

The METS have been saying for Years, Mejia should be a reliever.  However, Mejia wants to start, so of course he starts. He would be an excellant long reliever. If the Mets weren't so cheap, Degrom would be up as he is dominating AAA again this year. But we have to worry about 2018 arbitration eligibility. He should be the 5th starter after his amazing spring.


I can not believe there are people who ACTUALLY say TC did not make a mistake leaving him in. Dice K. was throwing for an inning and a half with and without a hat.

If Duda does not drop a Babe Ruth league throw to 1st, he probably survives the inning. But when stone hands dropped it, you know it will further rattle Mejia. TC has to get someone else up right there as well.


Sandy, you too, you lost your closer and have picked up no one, just like SS.

Bullpen looks like a black hole although Rice has come around of late. Maybe they should switch Dice-K into the rotation with Mejia who would probably make a good closer.

we can't improve through free agency, we dont have the finances. we can't really improve via trades, bc a trade essentially is swapping two equally valued players. we can't improve by being smart, bc alderson thinks its appropriate to spend 9 million on a .200 hitter in chris young. our prospects rarely pan out. the exceptions such as harvey wright murphy etc are not enough to win. is there anyway we can get better? no!!! but yet we all keep watching. torture

There were allot of things that cost this game. The thing that continues to cost game and ruin this season is the countless men in scoring position LOB by Tejada and the managers refusal to ever pinch hit for the worst hitter in MLB .

I will never say that Sandy is a Very good GM because that type of GM would NEVER have come into this season with Tejada as his only SS option . BAD JOB SANDY, no other way to put it.

Running into the Marlins next spells more trouble. Looking forward to the fresh dose of negative just in time for the subway series, you know, when we find out who the "true New Yorkers" are. Hopefully most of them stay home.

there should be a rule that if you can't hit .200 you should be demoted to las vegas unless ur hitting homeruns which met players as we all know just dont do

Winning 90 games (or 80 for that matter) is awfully difficult with 2 official automatic outs in your lineup, no set up man, no closer, and probably the weakest bench in the NL. Our good SP can get us 75 or so wins...like last year...like the year before...like the year before...

very frustrating, Our closers throw straight fast balls over the middle of the plate.

mets have to get creative. trade your best players and get multiple all stars in return

@eric88 Blows my mind that they'd rather pay Colon 20 million dollars for 2 years of his fat pathetic lazy schtick instead of bringing up deGrom or Montero, guys who are actually hungry to play instead of for the buffet. 4+ years is not a small sample size, Sandy is not going to lead us to the promised land. Go Sand Gnats.

@eric88 Sandy has me convinced that this organization was more competent during the Minaya/Bernazard era. I think I need to take a long break.

@mystere24  i think mejia should be traded. before this start his stock was relatively high. he's injury prone and has potential but wont pan out

Andrew Garber

@cyrus "Moneyball" Sandy allocated over 1/3 of the payroll to a 21 million dollar platoon and a 41 year old lazy dog who doesn't give a flying f***. I'd prefer if he never signed another free agent again because he's absolutely HORRIBLE at it. Not to mention a black hole at SS, bullpen, and the bench. He hasn't improved the major league team in 4 years.

@eric88 The fact that it has taken a Harvard educated lawyer over 4 years to evaluate Ruben Tejada is downright scary. The fact that he wanted to sign Jonny Peralta to a 3 year contract is even scarier.

@metsfan91  when harvey comes back he better be tom seaver

@mystere24  alderson needs to go after guys on bad teams like the cubs astros and diamondbacks. how did we get santana and piazza? put together a package and land a star it can happen

@Andrew Garber @cyrus  i honestly would of rather kept reyes, beltran, and dickey. we would of been competitive

i bet we could trade harvey for 2-3 all stars

@cyrus @Andrew Garbersame here man. the only thing that frustrates me more than watching them lose the same way for 4 years is arguing with the people who defend them.

@cyrus @Brian Webster@Andrew GarberI can't be a martyr for this team anymore. I was born in 1989 so I barely remember 99/00 and 2006 to me is only defined by 2007 and 2008. I didn't see the miracle Mets or watch them dominate in 1986. Had I, I wouldn't be NEARLY this bitter. But all I've seen is the Yankees succeed nearly every year while the Mets owners become bankrupt for being arguably complicit in the most massive ponzi scheme in history. 5 straight losing seasons and 28 years since a championship. An entire generation of Mets fans does not relate to our "glorious" history of two world championships 45 and 30 years ago. Keep this up, and there won't be a new generation of Mets fans. Why would I want my kids to be Mets fans? This isn't fun. It has barely been fun. I would never subject them to this torture should it continue, and it will. And now we have a Selig puppet playing GM and he sets an IDIOTIC 90 win goal for 25 man roster where over half are OMAR MINAYA leftovers. Hoping and praying that AAAA retreads suddenly figure it out is not a Baseball strategy. Oh and Citi Field is absolutely pathetic too, both dimension wise and aesthetically. Soon they'll probably convert the empty sections to billboards. Sitting in that park is browsing on Internet Explorer.

@cyrus @Andrew Garber I agree and that's the worst problem to have as there's not much hope for a solution when the problem is a bad owner. Someone needs to secretly rec the Wilpons saying something awful and release it to the public I guess to make MLB force them out.

@Brian Webster @Andrew Garber @cyrus  wilpon is the real problem. he can't afford a winning team. and i'm sorry but if you can't veto some of these moves alderson is making you dont know baseball and have no business owning a new york team

Brian Webster

@Andrew Garber @cyrus They haven't had anywhere near an adequate replacement at SS or leadoff in the 3yrs since Reyes left either. And to make matters even worse they lost him for nothing. At least they had the sense to trade Beltran and Dickey and get something useful for them in the future.

@Andrew Garber @cyrus  i'm glad u have the same disgust i do for this team. literally you can't make this stuff up. the mets just cant do anything right

Andrew Garber

@cyrus @Andrew GarberLetting Reyes walk was the beginning of the end for Sandy. Homegrown kid wins the Mets first batting title and doesn't even get an offer...and Alderson brings in Andres Torres (remember him?) to replace him as the leadoff hitter! Can't make this stuff up. He's wasted FOUR years of all of our lives and the clueless marketing department insinuates that we somehow owe THEM something?  The payroll has decreased every year which means the idiots who do actually go to games (myself included) have not seen a single dime of the millions of dollars their money be reinvested into the team. Do I really care about the farm system or the future? Why the F*** should I? I may die tomorrow.

@cyrus @jonlga i dont disagree, i mean DW has done a lot for this team, but i bet we could get a few good players for him that would help immediately

@jonlga  is my idea so crazy? the marlins break up their team every 4 years and win more games than we do
