    Good morning
    I was away the last few days. I was snowed in in NC. Seriously…2 inches of snow and the state stops and the all the roads close down.
    Could someone please tell me what promised announcement Francesa made (if any) about the Mets.
    Thanks.

    Go Jets!

    J-E-T-S

    shea, CitiField is having a buy 1 diet coke, get one free promotion in 2010…obviously that’s big news to Fatcessa. ;)

    j.k lol

    naw, i dont know what happened. i think he backed off it honestly. perhaps something fell through…perhaps his source backed off it. perhaps it was BS from the get-go

    he did say he knows for a fact the mets will sign delgado…but he didnt allude to the announcement when he talked about him.

    i think i need to go back to sleep!

    This team is sad. They will go nowhere. PITCHING is what we need as usual and we aint got it

    Thanks dep. So they still haven’t signed Molina? Lost. Our season is lost without him….lol!

    dep, I’m rooting hard for your Jets! I think they will win!

    I actually think Carlos is a good gamble for us..but he is a gamble. We have Murph for a fall back…love to see a RH bat (garko,X) to platoon

    We do need a legit #2..not Garland or Pineiro..you think we’d learned our lesson with Ollie, yeah we overpaid him, but the real mistake was assuming he’d become a 2 bc we paid him like one

  8. Comment posted by skyhappysal on January 9, 2010 at 11:00 am (#1132736)

    Maybe Piniero has harnessed his ability and learned how to pitch?
    I am not assured of that either, but it is possible.
    We had no indication that Oliver Perez was getting things together before we resigned him.
    Piniero is at least coming off a very nice year.
    The Mets are reportedly only willing to give him what Marquis signed for (2 years 15 mil), which I would be more than fine with. Let a 3rd year vest if he actually is good even.
    I have been more high on signing Sheets or Bedard but Sheets will not be able to help before May I guess? If he has no setbacks. WHich is riskier – Piniero being able to pitch or SHeets or Bedard being healthy AND still having their stuff?
    Piniero looks to be cheaper than sheets even.

    If we sign Piniero and he regresses some he should still earn his money at 7.5 a year. A decent Piniero is still quite a bit better than Garland. A decent Piniero coupled with Santana and a rebound from either Pelfrey or Maine would make us solid.

    I guess what I am saying is that I would rather sign Piniero than not sign him at this point. As long as he doesn’t bend us over with the contract.

  9. Comment posted by skyhappysal on January 9, 2010 at 11:05 am (#1132737)

    We have arguably better pitching at this point in the off season than the Cardinals did entering last season.
    Wainright was improving but no one would have called him better than Santana.
    Carpenter was trying to come back from injury, and no one knew what he was going to be able to do.
    Jeff Suppan has never been respected by anyone – with reason.
    Piniero stunk in 2009 (Oliver Perez stanky)

    You could make arguments that the 2010 current Mets starters could all rebound. They of course would be helped by solid defense and a catcher without his head in his ass (which the 2009 cardinals had).

  10. Comment posted by skyhappysal on January 9, 2010 at 11:07 am (#1132738)

    Regarding Molina..
    I may almost rather start Blanco most days – if he can put the ball in play and draw a few walks. We need to emphasize defense somewhere.
    So – I don’t care about signing big fatty.

    We have arguably better pitching at this point in the off season than the Cardinals did entering last season.

    sky….the difference is a guy named Duncan. A huge difference. I truly believe that, and I also truly believe that Piniero is a product of the aforementioned Duncan ( I said this weeks ago) and that without Duncan’s constant guidance, he will never be as effective as he was. That’s my opinion and Im sticking to it….lol!

    No Suppan in 09, Lohse and Wellemeyer..

    Oh yeah – soupie was in Milwaukee.
    Either way Wellemyer and Lhose are/were no great shakes.

    Cripes – Suppan hasn’t been there for a few years.
    My posts are rapidly losing credibility.

    Yes Duncan seems to have been huge for them. But I think the defense was at least as important. I blame Omar and Jerry for that. I know Omar put the team together but Jerry can bench Luis if he doesn`t think he is busting his ass defensively. If he does that this year then maybe our pitchers have a chance.
    Luis should really only play when Johan and Maine are starting. Perez gets his fly balls too but because of all his walks we need to start our maximum offense. With much better defenders on the bench this year hopefully Luis will sit down a lot more.
