  1. - Stallworth is going to jail - Jurevicius pretty much needs to retire - Winslow is gone Even without potentially dealing Braylon, someone to catch the ball was a HUGE need for them.
  2. While predictable, I couldn't resist honoring the guy who made this all possible...
  3. ....add a 1st round pick and they might actually pick up the phone when you call. Sure, lets trade them a 31 year old Runningback and Brad Smith for Braylon Edwards! If only the Jets thought of this!
  4. I don't really care for either of them, I think my issue is there doesn't appear to be anything in this book (That we didn't already know) that is more then he-said, she-said. At least when the Steroid story first broke it was a fact that was verified by 4 different sources, and later by Alex himself. The book on the other hand sounds like it just let anything she felt like writing in.
  5. It's an impressive, albeit kinda trivial, point. The last few SB's kinda felt like he was just padding numbers towards the end. What was impressive to me though was that very few of them even required a throw, they were true no-doubters. You guys are ripping on Tek's arm, but the reality is only one or two of them were close enough for the Catcher to throw to 2nd Base.
  6. Sounds about as real as Wang's Hip, I mean, Foot (That's what they're going with now, aren't they?) injury.
  7. The Staircases are really the only significant flaw with Shea, and that only really affects the first couple seats by the staircases most of the time. Of course, not any worse of a design flaw then the Yankees wonderful seats in Centerfield (Sorry, had to). The LED Boards you mentioned are not that bad at all, they raised the first row of seats to address it....and many fans are standing most of the game anyways. Most of the talk on WFAN hasn't had to do with that, but rather blindspots, where you're sitting in Left Field and you can't see the warning track in front of you. But little do these fans know that in every single stadium built in the last 20 years has the same thing. It's just something that is new to Mets fans because Shea Stadium had every seat ridiculously far away from the field that it was never an issue before.
  8. I doubt Ramiro Pena would really fare any better....always thought the Yankees needed to do more to replace A-Rod when he went down. Hell, signing someone like Easley who is still a FA would have been a nice addition (Probably too late for that now as by the time he gets into game shape, A-Rod will be back). Still, have to think there's a small trade that could be made.
  9. What exactly does re-arranging the rotation accomplish? At the end of the year they'll all still have 33 or so starts.
  10. From last night... (Citi Field) http://community.webshots.com/album/570816618JRcFtT?start=0 http://s636.photobucket.com/albums/uu87/johnql/CF%20Red%20Sox%204-3-09/ http://picasaweb.google.com/wcscargo/Mets_Boston_Citifield_Opener?pli=1&gsessionid=pbzu7sBYY8udnYq3BiDcKQ#
  11. Had an effect on the Wilpons personal finances? Sure. Had an effect on the Wilpons (And Saul Katz's) buisness that got scammed (Sterling Equities)? Probably. But has an effect on the day-to-day operations of the Mets? I haven't seen it. They said they were going to maintain payroll Pre-Madoff Scandal, and that's exactly what they did. As for Sheffield, I still dislike the guy, but at least he's saying the right things... - Metsblog.com
  12. It was leaked before Free Agency even began (And well before the Madoff scandal broke) that they were not raising payroll this offseason.....and they went and spent right up to last years payroll. I'm not sure why anybody thinks the Madoff situation has had any effect, because it really hasn't. They didn't sign Manny Ramirez because it wasn't in the budget. Nothing more that needs to be said about it.
  13. Ballpark looks amazing, here's some screenshots from the broadcast by KingCohn9, including new SNY graphics. http://s291.photobucket.com/albums/ll300/KingCohn9/Citi%20Field%20Screenshots/
  14. Anybody else find it ironic that the guy that said... ...is now about to be the ONLY African-American Player on a team with a heavy latino influence?
  15. According to reports, the Mets told him that "You deliver, and you'll play"......presumably the inverse of that would be if he's not delivering that he won't play. My guess is they see him playing a little of left, a little of right, maybe some first base....mainly against Lefties. Still, ugh, I hate having to root for Sheffield to do well.
  16. http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/multimedia/photo_gallery/0903/mlb.citi.field.behind.the.scenes/content.19.html SI.com takes some Citi Field photos, looks to be a bit outdated, but some different shots. (Modells Clubhouse in Right Field, a private suite that can be rented out to groups at Field Level). (Caesars Club) (Empire Suite) (Mr. Met's Kiddie Field) (Team Gym)
  17. They had this story a couple years ago with Calvin Johnson, Gaines Adams, and Amobi Okoye, and they all managed to still go in the Top 10. Maybe if you take things to an extreme like Mangini does you'd be less inclined to draft someone like this, but I think most GM's will just chalk it up to kids being kids and let it slide.
  18. From poopdoop on Mets refugees. (Darker CF "Fake" Grass?) (Not the best picture, but you can see the logo on top of the dugouts) Also mildly newsworthy, MLBPA to open up a shop in Citi Field, first one of it's kind. http://www.nytimes.com/2009/04/02/sports/baseball/02union.html?_r=2&partner=rss&emc=rss --- Citi Field at night, wow. http://www.flickr.com/photos/doctorxylophone/3405119351/sizes/o/

  20. *** Food at Citi Field http://*******.seriou****s.com/2009/03/first-look-at-citi-field-food-concession-stands-baseball-mets-shakeshack-danny-meyer.html Never thought I'd see the day where I might want to head out to the ballpark for a good meal, but just looking at the pictures is making me hungry. Just one small correction is the Shake Shack and similar "Taste of the City" food courts are located behind CF, not Home Plate. Edit: What the hell with the censors? http://n e w * *r k.serious e a ts.com/2009/03/first-look-at-citi-field-food-concession-stands-baseball-mets-shakeshack-danny-meyer.html (Remove the spaces)
  21. I think they have the depth of the Pitching Staff to be a factor (Although without Smoltz they lack that true "Ace"), but not the Offense. Their main two Offense weapons are either Injury Prone (Chipper) or a Catcher (McCann), meaning both are a good bet to miss at least 40 games....and there really isn't much else that's far better then average to compliment them.
