    We can compete this year, for the wild card at least.
    We probably won’t win the division unless Ustley, Howard, Rollins, and Halladay get hurt – which could never happen, right?

    Its like every song I hear on the radio is mocking me for being a Mets fan

    See first of all, I know these so called “players” wouldn’t tell you this
    But, Imma be real and say what’s on my heart
    Lets take this chance to make this love feel relevant
    Didn’t you know I loved you from the start yeah

    Then I think about, all the years [I] put in this relationship
    Who knew we’d [still never] make it [anywhere]
    Then I think about,where would I be if [things hadn’t] just fell apart
    And I can’t stand the thought…

    honestly? imho, the Mets are still 3-4 players away from the wild card

    will we fill those holes? certainly, but I have my doubts

    maybe we’re better off waiting until next year’s stellar FA class….
    by then we might have an aggressive, new GM who knows how to build a team!

    Interesting 2009 pitching stats.

    Innings Pitched by the top 3 starters on each NL team.
    600+ IP- 6 teams
    550-600- 4 teams
    500-550- 3 teams
    450-500- 1 team
    400-450- 2 teams

    Avg: 560 IP by the top 3 starters

    Mets: 447 IP (113 IP below the avg and 49 behind the Nats; trailed only by the Pads, with 406 IP).

    We were the only team to have nobody pitch 190 IP. Our #3 pitcher in terms of starter innings was Tim Redding with 96 IP as a starter.

    While we certainly lost offense due to injuries this year, we clearly had serious pitching instability, with a lot of IP by fill-in guys, who are by definition not that good. And the bullpen was also taxed beyond endurance. This tells me that a top criteria for a new starter should be a demonstrated consistent history of durability. Look, if the quality isn´t out there (no Sabathias or Becketts this year) let´s at least get durability.

    OK, so I re-watched the Giants game, and have determined that the blowout wasn’t so much due to rediscovered Blue prowess as it was that the Skins were nearly totally inept. My God, what an embarrassment, and in front of the new boss to boot. Giants aren’t making no playoffs. In fact, it’s easy to envision them losing the final two.

    If “Baywatch” gets cancelled, here’s eight options

    Wednesday, December 23, 2009 | Feedback | Print Entry

    For the Mets, there are already legitimate questions about whether Jason Bay is the right investment for their ballpark. He is a below-average defender who hits for power and Citi Field is a place where deep fly balls and subpar outfielders will suffer.

    But as the Bay negotiations drag out, there are growing doubts about whether Bay even wants to play for the Mets, in their grand canyon of a park.

    The Mets are aware of all this — and while they still would like to sign Bay very soon, the team is internally mapping out alternative routes in the event that Bay doesn’t embrace their offer.

    And those options include adding depth, rather the one big name, like Bay.

    There is no perfect Cliff Lee or Roy Halladay solution for the Mets, because rival front offices are not lured by their prospects — and because the free agent market, in general, is weak. But there are a ton of unsigned free agents, and if you have $15 million to $22 million available in cash at this point, you don’t have a lot of competition. You would be like the guy who waits until after Dec. 25 to do your Christmas shopping; the best stuff might be gone, but you will have a lot of choices.

    The key, as one major league official mused on Tuesday night, is picking the right players — using the money the right way. If the Mets come to believe that Bay doesn’t want to play for them, they should go the route of the Seattle Mariners and shape their choices according to their ballpark and build some depth. They could consider a series of moves along these lines:

    1. Make the move for Orlando Hudson, something that the Mets have been dying to do for two years: Castillo had a surprisingly decent season last year, but Hudson is the better player — he drives the ball more (50 extra-base hits last year), and he’s a better defensive player; he scored significantly better than Castillo in the UZR/150 ratings. He’s an energizing force who would be good in the New York clubhouse, and would take pressure off the likes of David Wright and Carlos Beltran in dealing with the New York media. You sign Hudson and then figure out what to do with Castillo, whether it would be eating a significant share of the money owed to him to dump him or simply using him as a part-timer.

    2. Sign a low-cost veteran outfielder, like Randy Winn: He can play multiple outfield positions, he still rates very well in his defense — and this is something you need from your outfielders while playing in a park like Citi Field. The Mariners showed this approach last year with the strong outfield defense they played in Safeco. How much would he cost? Well, the guess here is that Winn doesn’t have a lot of options, and maybe he bites if you dangle a one-year deal for something in the range of $2.5 million. He might not hit for power, but he’ll play good defense, run the bases well, lend some versatility and experience — and you keep the flexibility by signing him to a one-year deal. Winn was not a good player for the Giants last season, but he often hit near the top of the San Francisco lineup and more was needed from him that he could provide. With the Mets, he would probably hit at the bottom of the order.

    3. Consider a strong two-year offer to Mark DeRosa: There are concerns among teams about whether DeRosa is going to be effective, as he comes back from a wrist injury. But if the Mets are at least somewhat satisfied that he can be a productive player moving forward, they could outbid the market on a DeRosa deal. He could play first base against left-handed pitchers (with Daniel Murphy starting against right-handers), given his .587 slugging percentage and .928 OPS against lefties last year, and DeRosa could start against right-handers according to the needs of the day — maybe in left field, maybe at third base if David Wright needs a day off, or at second if Hudson or Castillo needed a day off.

    4. Make solid one-year offers to the best strike-throwing relief specialists on the market: Bob Howry held right-handed batters to a .231 on-base percentage last year; maybe he would be that kind of guy. Chan Ho Park held right-handers to a .678 OPS, and seems durable; maybe he would be that kind of guy for the Mets.

    5. Take a look at Jarrod Washburn: Maybe he’s not healthy. Maybe he’s not excited about pitching in New York, in the National League. But he is a fly ball pitcher who threw pretty well for the first four months of last season (check out the month to month totals here), and presumably, he would not be expensive on a one-year contract; if he is, you move on to other options.

    6. Make a solid two-year offer to Fernando Rodney, to strengthen your group of set-up men: It looks like he could be headed to the Angels or the Phillies, but if the Mets got him, he wouldn’t cost a draft pick (unlike Jose Valverde) and the back end of the team’s bullpen could become a strength.

    7. Make solid one-year offers to the starting pitchers who might be trying to rebuild their market value, whether it be someone like Brett Myers or Vicente Padilla or Jon Garland.

    8. If you like Joel Pineiro, make an offer that you’re comfortable with: If Pineiro — the best starting pitcher still unsigned — wants more than what you’re offering, then you move on to other pitchers. There is volume in this current market.

    A key in all of these moves is flexibility. If the Mets don’t sign Bay, they should look for very short-term obligations, one-year or two-year deals, to keep themselves in position to make bids next winter, when the free agent crop will be better. The advantage for the Mets now is that they still have a good core of players who will presumably have better luck in staying healthy this year — Johan Santana, David Wright, Jose Reyes, Carlos Beltran and Francisco Rodriguez.

    What they do not need is a long-term investment in Bay if he doesn’t want to play for him; the last thing the Mets can afford now is to have a reluctant $16 million player. If they don’t get an answer soon, they should move on and take advantage of the fact that they’re one of the few teams with a nice chunk of change to spend.

    Hmmmmm…. 2x face value? What are your thoughts?

    Well they’re in a low row for the 400 level which helps and I think they’re right on the aisle. The seats that Dep and I sat in are definitely better because it’s not even a half row and the ledge in front is nice (kind of like watching the game at a bar, except the action is in front of you).

    Standard practice by most season ticketholders of any sport other than football, they need to sell off some popular games at a premium to offset the loss they probably take on the games vs the SE teams and the non-Red Wings, Blackhawks Western teams.

    Combine that with it being a rare Saturday night game and I think the price is unfortunately fair.

  57. Comment posted by Joe A. on December 23, 2009 at 9:46 am (#1126814)

    I agree with Olney’s overall point, although I disagree on some of the specific players. D

    eRosa especially is being overrated. He is best suited to be a utility player and he is going to end up getting paid much more than that. I also want nothing to do with Winn or Padilla.

    No, it’s not.

    The lower tax rates are in UEZs (that means Urban Enterprise Zones), to attract business to the inner cities. That means Newark, Elizabeth, Camden, Paterson, and maybe one or two others. Paramus is a prosperous Bergen County suburban town. It just has more malls per square inch than any other place I know of.

    We now have a Lowe’s and a Home Depot in Paterson because of the UEZ thing.

    the residents simply don’t want the traffic, which is a MAJOR concern in Paramus and Hackensack

    one of the happiest days of my life was when I got out of retail and landed an entry-level job in marketing. at Panasonic in Secaucus.

    Yeah, I went from catering to manual labor/demolition to freelance theater crap. And now I’m in computers.

    Fucking degree. :)

    “braves are close to deal with troy glaus”

    makes perfect sense

    Chris said last night they’re all over Uggla as well

    the Braves have NO money for Bay or Holliday

    and Vasquez, imho, was a pure salary dump once they saw no takers for Lowe

    Speaking of NJ, killed time the other day watching Garden State. Not half bad. In fact, its weakest link was Zach’s acting. He should have cast someone else in the film he wrote and directed.

    yep, the Hiram’s-Callahan’s rivalry

    Hiram’s is still there and usually packed for lunch….
    Callahan’s went under many, many years ago

    Strange it must be to have to worry about which quality starting pitcher you have to make expendable. What’s that like?

    Lowe is generally unmoveable. He had a mediocre season, he’s getting paid ace numbers, and he’s probably just going to get worse.

    yikes!

    KINGSTON, Jamaica – An American Airlines flight carrying 154 people skidded across a Jamaican runway in heavy rain, bouncing across the tarmac and injuring more than 40 people before it stopped just short of the Caribbean Sea, officials and witnesses said.

    Panicked passengers screamed and baggage burst from overhead bins as Flight 331 from Miami careened down the runway in the capital, Kingston, on Tuesday night, one passenger said.

    The impact cracked the fuselage, crushed the left landing gear and separated both engines from the Boeing 737-800, airline spokesman Tim Smith said.
    Crews evacuated dazed and bloodied passengers onto a beach from a cabin that smelled of smoke and jet fuel, passengers said. Rain poured through the plane’s broken roof, one said.

    Some 44 people were taken to hospitals with broken bones and back pains and four were seriously hurt, airport and Jamaican government officials said. American Airlines said two people were admitted to the hospital and nobody suffered life-threatening injuries.
