  1. 2017 Mets thread!

    Don't disagree with you at all. I am not thinking postseason -- just hoping they can give me enough to at least keep me interested through the summer.

    Ugly win last night, but still a win. Well, that is 7 Ws out of 8 heading into this afternoon's game. If they can finish off the sweep today and take 2 out of 3 in Washington and maybe I will start to get excited about the 2nd half.
  3. Cubs Thread

    The one thing you guys have going for you is the Division this year. With all the struggles and injuries so far this year, still only a game behind Milwaukee. It is really hard to take them seriously as a contender since they have not been able to add any separation during this last month. This was the chance for the Brewers to show they are for real and put some pressure on the Cubs. They haven't done it. Still think the Cubs win the Division comfortably and once you get in the postseason, anything is possible.

    Here is how bad it has gotten:-- our pitching stats are comparable to the 62 Mets: ERA: 5.04 (62) vs 5.05 (17) Hits per 9 innings: 9.9 (62) vs 9.7 Walks per 9: 3.6 (62) vs 3.8 HR/9: 1.21 (62) vs 1.50 Opp bating average: .281 (62) vs .272 Good to know that Warthen is safe.

    The good news these last two nights is that we didn't have to stay up late to watch them lose. Both games were turned off before the 1st inning was over. At least I have the Jets Dawgs to look forward to.
  7. Skins have one of the worst cap situations in the league, they would have a lot of work to do to fit Decker in under the cap -- I would think they are a longshot.
  8. He was waived/injured. He cleared waivers and was placed on IR. He is still on the roster.
  9. I take a couple of road trips every year and this year will be no different. I don't expect them to be good, and I don't expect them to win many games, but they are still my team and I still want to see them play. The road trips will still be fun: meeting up with friends, tailgates, the games. Yup, still planning to do a couple of trips. One of those trips is always a weekend with my son. He is out on his own, married and has his own life now. Our Jets weekend is a chance for the two of us to get away and spend a weekend together. We have done 1 trip a year for about the last 10 seasons (more in playoff years, so this year will be just one). It does not matter if the team is competitive or not, they are not taking that weekend away from me.
  10. This may be nothing more thana move to clear cap space. Cleveland takes on Pryor's $1.6MM guaranteed base salary. The Jets take on Davis' $3.7MM non-guaranteed base. If we cut Davis prior to the season, we save Pryor's $1.6MM cap hit that we would have had to absorb if we had released him.

    I sure hope this means that we have seen the last of Rafael Montero. Watching last night's game - he gets a quick out, goes 0-2 on the 2nd batter and I was thinking maybe he would look better. 40 pitches later, I saw the error in my thinking.
  12. http://www.nj.com/jets/index.ssf/2017/05/ryan_fitzpatricks_interesting_almost_unbelievable.html Full text of the Fitz quote: "I can't complain about it," Fitzpatrick said. "Last year, I was the starter. If you play well as the starter, you continue to play. I didn't play well, so I lost the game of musical chairs. They pulled out my chair from under me."
  13. What bothers me most is that the approach we are taking now is the one we should have taken two years ago. Coming off of a 4-12 season in 2014. New coach, new GM. That was the time to commit to the rebuild, but instead, we spent a ton of money on a bunch of aging veterans who are no longer on the team. And here we are two years into the Bowles-Macc regime and we still have huge questions about the most important positions in the game: QB, #1WR, Edge, a 31 year old feature back, #1CB, and question marks at both tackle positions. I am happy to see them finally commit to a rebuild. I am excited to see what some of the young guys can do, but we should have done this two years ago. Two wasted years -- thats what bothers me most.

    Pretty sure we are right up against the 90-man offseason roster limit. It frees up the roster spot by doing it now.
