Mets Win Finale

Great to see the Mets salvage a W and/or not blow another lead.

A lotta offense on Sunday including 4 hits from Reyes. 3 hits for Murphy and Thole and 2 for Bay and Justin Turner plus 6.1 shutout innings from Niese are all accomplishments that deserve more press than I’m gonna give tonite but wanted to at least shout em out

Happy Memorial Day Everyone!!!

    Well it is officially Memorial Day and Jason Bay’s RBI total still stands in the single digits. Pity the fool who has this baseball has been on his fantasy team.

    Happy Memorial Day to all!

    When the Mets let Reyes go either via trade or free agency, I’ll be done with this team too, like I am with the Knicks and Rangers. Yes, he can get injured at times, but he’s the most exciting Mets player I’ve seen in my 30 years of watching this team. He’s not old and he doesn’t have a bad attitude. If management doesn’t see him as a guy to build around, I don’t know what they are looking for in a player.

    bjake, its not that he’s old or had a bad attitude, its their finances. For some reason the talk is they want to keep the payroll low. Even with all the money coming off at the end of the year, they don’t want big contracts. I don’t understand it either. If anything, Reyes is worth a big contract. Should they trade him tho, I’m not abandoning the team. while they won’t get a player like Jose again in my lifetime they could get good pitching in a trade for Jose, Beltran or KRod. I’m not for them trading reyes, but if we get something good in return, is be for it. at least to see how it plays out.

    Anyways, the Mets are 4 games under .500 and have 7 games left on this homestead. Even with Reyes out the next few days, I can see them going 4-3 and leaving at 30-29 on the year. Not bad for the expectations placed on us, and really good since we haven’t had our “real lineup” out there in forever.

    Should Sandy trade Reyes now, get some prospects in return and then try to re-sign Reyes on the open market?

    If we’re not contending and Reyes and his agent aren’t going to give a “home team discount”, why not? Best we can probably do is 3rd place…if we finish ahead of the Nats and the Marlins, we’d be over achieving.

    I’m with BJake. Again, players like Reyes are what money is FOR.

    If fred does not have the money and/or does not wish to spend it on Reyes or anyone else for that matter, then there is really nothing as fans we really can do…and not showing up for games will make it even worse.The Mets are not alone in this because all professional sports will eventually fail to some degree due to an ever faultering economy.This is not a time to spend more money than you have.

  8. BrooklynBill Says:

    Is this the Reyes we’ll always see? Or, is this yet another sign of what is wrong with professional sports. Anyone else sick of these athletes who can suddenly dial up their game up a few notches, not because they want to win, or because the team really needs them, but because they stand to have a big pay day? Who’s to say this is the Jose Reyes that shows up once he’s had his.

    Mets would be best served to get as many suitors involved as possible, bid up the asking price, and get some nice prospects. Then, see how the financial situation with new ownership looks and maybe by the end of the season, there is more clarity on the Madoff stuff and we will be in good shape $$ wise to resign Reyes in the off season. Resign him, give him a new #, and then make up some of the $$ from fans who will by the new Jersey ;)

    I think the Mets should offer 4 years, $60 million. Add some bonus for leading league in triples, stolen bases, etc if they want. If he’s playing on this level after 3 years, renegotiate to add another 3 years on the contract for another $60 million. I think thats fair for both parties. as long as he continues to play hard (which he usually does) he stands to essentially get a 7 year, $120 million contract.
