Justin Turner has a 3.2 WAR for the 1st place Dodgers but not good enough to play for us, Byrd has 25 HRs but he is to old to play for us and we definitely don't want Cruz or Melky and those nasty PEDs but we will embrace Colon at 41 with a 2 year $20 mil contract, everything makes so much sense to the illogical mind!

Damn, had Colon pitched well, we could've gotten a better prospect. Now I guess we have to settle with whatever we can get, if anything at all. But I still think he'll be gone tom.

Well obviously there is not much to be positive about on this night,but congrats to Herrera on his first big league hit.

At least Grandy didn't strike out with the bases loaded down 4 runs on his Bobblehead night. That would be humiliating.

SNY reporting Mets to petition the league to play kickball the rest of the season. TC sayz only 100 pitches though for the staters and Trophy every night for best towel tunnel performance.

the mets turned into a team that always saying we have good young talent we are only 1 or 2 years away. it is really sad even the fans  talk about prospects i remember when you didnt even know there names cus we had mlb players to watch now we hope santa brings us a AAA all star

I'm afraid tonight's performance means we're not getting Trout for Colon tomorrow.  I'm devastated.

Heard the Mets are making a petition to the NL next week. For the month of September, they want the league to allow Flores to hit off a tee. 

.

They think the petition will work, but they don't think it will make any difference.

I can't wait until everyone on this team has aniscoria, then we could all pretend they're young David Bowie's.

Colon stinks. 2 runs of support and he can't make that stand. Trade him for a new luffa for Jeff Wilpon.

@jimmybx. Are you really that clueless? Terrible signing? He has had a couple bad games and numerous very good games. No one wants to give up the asking price for him is much different than not wanting him. Cry baby fans are worse than the Wilpon's!

This team needs new players, not AAA prospects who should stay in AAA.

@Söze, Keyser If that starts my dream of an all David Bowie-eyed team, I'm all for it!
