Looks like Hamels increased his trade value, although he beat a mediocre line-up. What makes Colon so interesting is that Alderson has put his cards on the table and is in a position to accept or reject bids in accordance with the team's needs. Trading Colon at any price makes no sense at this juncture and Alderson knows this. Good for him. I only wish he would take CY out of the line-up , but he's sticking to his guns on that one. He knows CY has zero trade value, but it would take the rest of the season and an outstanding turn-around by CY to prove Alderson right, but at the expense of the team. It just doesn't make sense.

Every time I have to see Terry Collins speak, I am repulsed on his overt ignorance, arrogance and incompetence. And he could learn how to speak proper English as well- TC is unbelievable in the worst possible way.

And don't get me going on how he wholly mismanages the Mets' talent- i.e., Duda not playing every day, Tejada playing every day, the lazy Chris Young getting far too much playing time, Flores not getting a proper chance as a starter, etc.

What's on tap is that CY should sit and Campbell should play. Odds on that happening? Oh, and Abreu should get zero at bats going forward.
