I'm not going to post 2014 starting lineup but. **** *** ****

Wilpons grow a sack spend money or met fans should go on strike will fine on our recliners seats watching from home It's the same thing and free. No talent no Money Wilpons

Wright can flat out hit no matter where he bats in the lineup. Maybe granderson is the one that needs protection. As for Ruben you just look a complete donkey and making it worse for yourself go drop 20 pounds u should have over the off season then come back maybe u can get a single A gig.... Hold on a second if u gained another 20 pounds on top, wilpons might call u god. Let's not do that. What a way to start.

I would much rather swallow Adrian Gonzalez horrid contract and put him at 1b then deal with Duda, Satin and Ike

Besides Wright and Murphy these team is all .240 hitters and below. They are doomed. David Wright should smack a Jeff in the mouth for lying to him about building a contender when he resigned.

There's no reason to notake improvements sandy gave away the 1st round pick with grandy so the 100 losses we are about to endure won't help in the draft so this season will be a complete loss if we don't turn it around but I still have faith

To anyone who says this is just Game 2, what makes you think this team will get any better? They cannot hit and they have no relievers. Those will stay with us all year.

I have a hard time getting worked up over Terry. His lineup tonight had 3 (maybe) Major League hitters. He is not great but who good would agree to coach this group

Terry is a clown he doesnt take the best out of his players. You think any top manager in the league will take this mess? NO even Gerardi wouldve gotten into these idiots already

Can't blame terry. When alderson Holds meetings with all the hitters about their approach and they get a sabermetrics trapper keeper to study you see pro hitters paralyzed.

Granderson looks like he's trying to hit one out in every at bat.  I know it's a small sample size so far, but I think Yankee stadium turned him into a HR or SO hitter.  I liked Detroit Granderson a lot better.

I'm usually an optimist when it comes to this team, but we are never going to see a winning product on the field until the lying, cheating, dirt bag wilpons sell the team. And unfortunately, the only way this is going to happen in the foreseeable future is if sandy accepts an upper level job in Major League Baseball once bud selig retires.

@Jimmy P.  Flores if given the chance can hit well above 280 he was great last season before that ankle injury, he just needs playing time

@Zac Tindall  We don't lose the first round pick dude, its protected cause its in the top 10. We lost our second rounder, but lets be honest, it doesn't matter how high the pick is im sure Sandy will screw it up...

What is this clown talking about??  How does this guy fail miserably since he started and still have a job?? 

Jimmy P.

Is this based on him batting .211 last year or just pure front office hype like always? Or maybe inflated Las Vegas numbers?

As long as we all agree he and the Wilpons are ignorant who cares what I say lol

He has a job to take pressure off of sandy because terry is worse than jerry Manuel during in game work sandy figures we the fans will blame him and when he fires terry everyone will jump for joy he doesn't realize we want Terry's his and the Wilpons heads at once
