2019-2020 METS THREAD! It’s time has come.

Recommended Posts

BVW's moves have been a disaster so far.  I hated the big Cano trade for many reasons, but I guess he had to "go for it" with the elder Wilpon getting close to moving on... Just a stupid trade on many levels.

It's not time to go full out seller mode yet (neither the Phillies or Braves are running away so far).

Familia was signed for (gulp) three years. They are stuck with him.

I'd be very surprised if the they start selling until July, if at all.  They probably need to fall 10+ games back, and maybe fall to 4th place, before a fire sale might ensue.

Probably getting close to Calloway being fired. He looks like dead man walking. Now 8.5 back, about to be passed by the Nats. That should stir the Wilpons. Scapegoat needed.

The worse culprit here is BVW. What a disaster. Yeah, let's think "outside the box" and hire a pompous sports agent with a huge ego and no clue.

Can we get Kelenic back? Just asking.

I'm not defending Calloway, b/c I do think he needs to go, but he likely just lost his cool after being grilled by the beat writers for his confusing bullpen use.  The team has already issued a public apology. If Calloway is not canned tomorrow, he'll probably personally apologize, as well.

However, what's with Vargas going all macho thug or whatever? That one may take more than an apology to make things good with the media and maybe MLB.

See?  I told you Calloway would apologize.  It just took him two press conferences to do it!

Keith Hernandez called today's events "ghastly." Good word for it.  Calloway clearly is not apologetic, nor is Vargas.  Hell hath no fury like a NY media scorned.

Diaz now with an ERA near 5 and four blown saves.  Cano hitting like .220-something.  I hated the trade but never thought it would be this bad.  Cano for 4 more years?  Diaz is probably shell-shocked right now.

What a mess.  WWBD?  What will Brodie Do?

Watch Cano have a decent 2nd half, rally to around .265 or something.  Still lousy, but some will think he's turned it around.

0-5 now since the Mets showed some "fire" (according to a few fans) by bullying a beat reporter.  Well done.

Cano had 2 hits, though, making my post yesterday look prescient!

Well, the Mets have been to 5 World Series so far in my life, while the Jets have only been to 1 Super Bowl...and a long time ago at that. I'm much more horrified at my Jet fandom than the Mets!

COVID MY ASS !!!!!!!!!!!!!! Yoenis can't hit anymore !!!!!

I really wonder if he was just pouting about being DHed rather than playing LF. If it really is about Covid, then how about making a phone call to the team before the game?

RIP Tom Seaver.

He was my idol as a kid (Joe Namath, too, but Tom #1).

As an 11 year old in Little League, I pitched a one-hit complete game against a team. The opposing coach, who would later be my all-star team coach, said that I would be "The next Tom Seaver." Well, that never happened, but it was probably the greatest compliment I ever received.
