It is a new era, and time to leave the stench of the threads that were controlled by the Wilpons. Let's start anew. LFGM!!!

Love this.  Just gotta make sure we can extend Lindor beyond 2021.

The worst part about this is that the collapse is happening now.  Had it been a month ago, we would could have been sellers at the deadline and restocked the system (kind of like the Cubs did, but not

Hopefully this ages well. What are your thoughts on re-signing Baez? 
Although I love watching his highlights, His SO #’s and OBP scare me….

I have always like Baez as a player.  Maybe more than most.  Seems like when I watched him play for the Cubs, he always had a knack for getting the big hit or making a big play in a big spot.  And we have seen some of that in his two months here.  All depends on the money, though, and what other FAs are out there this winter.

Remember also we have Cano and his $20m per coming back through 2023. If this weren’t the case then I would try to lock up Baez. Pete’s 1st arbitration year starts ‘22. He’ll get a big raise.

Seriously doubt Cano ever sees the field again as a Met.

Surprised that there has been no discussion in here about the 4 part 30 on 30 "Once Upon a Time in Queens". Fabulously done doc, with footage and stories I had never heard. If you haven't seen it, must watch. It took a little of the sting away from this season.

Yes. Saw parts of it, and it is a fantastic watch. I really hope Cohen goes big, and lures either Beane or Epstein here.

The three that I have heard mentioned are Epstein, Beane and also Stearns (Milwaukee org.) On the surface, it would seem any of them would be a good hire. Imagine what Beane or Stearns could do with a big budget. Both their farm systems produce talent regularly. Epstein is a known quantity.

You know Cohen's tactics better than I do, so I am betting he wants to go big

Considering we drafted Billy Beane, it would be fitting that he come here and put an asterick on a lousy playing career but a magnificent front office career.

Supposedly theo epstein declined

Probably SD makes an offer IMO. Can’t beat the weather and has a good foundation (except for the SA Fault which will cause it to fall off into the sea in the next 4 years)

Does Max know you are a seismologist?😁 Sounds like Theo really is waiting for an ownership type gig. If I'm Cohen, and the Mets are going to keep using these analytic types, I'd focus on Tampa.

You can trade him, but then have to eat a big chunk of his salary

Or have him DH and use him as a backup. 20M is nothing to sneeze at.  Eff it. Make him earn it. Dom is as goos as gone as is McNeil and Conforto. this team needs defense, starters, speed and hitters. Cano can still hit. Its not like he's the first guy to get caught. He paid his penance.  Play out his contract.

Heard Padres will NOT let Stearns interview as they can blocxk him. Epstein declined. That leaves Beane in the driver's seat.  Talk about negotiating from a position of strentgh.  Here's a check for a 10 year contract. Put our own figure in there Billy..

Josh Byrnes (Dodgers) is another one to keep an eye on, along with Daniels (Rangers)

Cubs also

As quirky as he is, Strohman had a nice year. Would not be unhappy at all if he signs back here. Other than Marcus, every starter has huge? Tell me what you think about this…if Bauer is exonerated, and LA would consider moving him, do we make a call? Should we make a call?

Stroman is great as a 3. He gives a different look than deGrom and Syndergaard. He consistently went out there and gave inning.

Bauer is going to be untouchable. Not sure what happens to him.
