    2018 Mets thread

    In 2011 the Mets changed their strategy from signing high priced FA's to a strategy built around rebuilding the farm system and building a consistent winner. This is the 8th season since then and the Mets have 3 legitimate players. Syndergaard, deGrom, and i’ll give them Conforto because I do believe he's the real deal even though he's been awful this year and has not yet put together a full major league season of great play. 8 seasons, and 3 legitimate quality players the organization can really be proud of. Guys you can call all star caliber. Meanwhile the Yankees started to make a focused effort to improve the farm system around 2015 and low and behold their farm system is awesome and has already churned out top caliber prospects at multiple positions. The Mets prioritized starting pitching and shockingly to nobody the Mets starting pitching sucks. The Yankees prioritized offense and shockingly to nobody the Yankees offense is elite and probably the best in baseball. 8 seasons, 1 deep playoff run, 1 wildcard appearance, and a whole lot of losing. It's extremely frustrating to watch. I don't have a lot of hope for this season. The Mets look old and slow and the strength that the Mets sold us on (starting pitching) is no longer a strength. They have a great 1-2 punch with Noah and Jake. Arguably the best 1-2 combo in all of baseball (have to be fair) but they have very little else in that rotation. Maybe Matz will one day be a top lefty in all of baseball, but he's not there yet.

    Another draft review & grade - Rotoworld

    For those of us who like PFF they said we had an ELITE draft. They loved the Darnold pick and felt that Parry Nickerson (CB Tulane) could be a huge steal for us in the 6th round. To compare them to the rest of the AFC East they said the Bills and Patriots had AVERAGE drafts and the Dolphins had a GOOD draft. They also said the Giants had an ABOVE AVERAGE draft.
  3. Petty will either be traded (if teams really do have some interest as reported) or released first. Hackenberg will come into camp as the number 4 QB and will be released or traded at some point if the Jets feel Teddy Bridgewater is healthy and his knee can hold up. If he can't, they'll cut Teddy and go with McCown/Darnold/Hack. I bet Macc is hoping he can dump both QBs for late round draft picks before he cuts them.

    So does Darnold start in game 1

    It all depends how he plays in the pre season. If he wins the job or looks just as good as McCown or Bridgewater then he should play. You want to get these guys on the field as soon as possible if you can.

    Welcome Nathan Shepherd

    Real solid pick. PFF ranked him 62nd overall on their big board. Mayock seems to like him a lot as well.

    Who are 1 or 2 realistic players you want at #72

    I'd love for the Jets to get Arden Key if he's still there.

    Sam Darnold

    No problem with the pick. I loved Mayfield but he wasn't an option obviously. I always felt Darnold was the 2nd best QB in the draft and the only guy I could understand passing on Mayfield for because he's so young. He could have played 1 or 2 more years at USC and dominated and came out as the obvious number 1 QB. I'm happy with the pick.

    OT: Sounds a lot like Francesa is coming back

    Kay is brutal. Why he has that idiot Rosenberg on his show i'll never know. That show is the worst. Unfortunately CMB is know better. I flip back and forth between both shows until I finally tap out and just turn the radio off.

    Second overall pick is...

    If Darnold goes 1 to the Browns, I don't think the Giants pass on Barkley.

    Giants release Marshall

    He had a Hall of Fame career. He's probably hit the end of the road. He's got a nice media career that's developing so he might want to just cash out and start the next chapter of his life. I'm sure he could probably catch on somewhere if he really wanted to keep playing though.
  11. I'm really hoping this is true. I love this scenario. It's a different approach at the position that I think will pay off for the Jets finally. Mayfield is the best QB in this draft. Just because he isn't the prototypical franchise QB doesn't mean he can't play.

    Trade Down

    Trade up in order to trade down. That's a new one...

    Nick Mangold.. HOF 'er ? ? ?

    He's definitely close. I'd say yes. But i'm a Jets fan so that probably makes me biased...
  14. ScarletKnight89

    Who do the Jets draft in the 3rd round?

    This team needs help on the O-Line and as frustrating as it is, the D-Line as well. So I wouldn't mind a prospect at one of those groups.

    Possible 3 way trade at the top of the draft

    I mean, i'm sure the Bills are actively trying to trade up. So anything is possible. Mayfield is the guy I want and I can't see the Bills thinking he is a good fit for them.
