    I am all for Jose coming back…..but not at 18 mill per for 5 years plus…..if that’s what he wants… my opinion……I would let him walk….trade David Wright for prospects and salary relief and start over!!!!This team stinks with both of those guys!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I really don’t think Jose will be back. The Mets will make an offer to save face and try to appease the fans, then they will put on a spin and make Jose look like the bad guy. I don’t think he really wants to stay on this team either. Would you?

    I think you are going to see wholesale changes in this team next year with at least 8 new faces.

    All in all this was really a “Crappy Season” and we were never in it from day one. I just want this season to end and lets make like it never happened!

    tdfkabl, GREAT SONG and so appropriate. Confess I’m partial to the extended Jackson Browne version.

    FMFR: I disagree that this was a “crappy” season. This was a team that played with a lot of heart almost all the time, showcased a lot of kids and put the lie to the idea that the Mets had no farm system. TC and his boys put an entertaining product on the field almost every day, and that’s more than you can say about a lot of clubs. Now if we can only get TC to some behavior modification clinic to make him fall out of love with the sac bunt………

    Interesting thought question, who had the “better” season: Mets or Red Sox?

    The Mets started the season with no expectations, were beat up with injuries and the trade of one of their most productive players, yet still remained competitive through July and ended up winning more than the 74.5 games Vegas expected them to.

    The Red Sox started the season with legitimate WS expectations, then got off to a miserable start, and are now on the verge of the greatest September collapse, ever.

    While the Red Sox may have had the “better” season, but if they don’t make the playoffs, then there is no question that they will have been the bigger disappointments.

    WOW, big win for the Wilpons in court!!

  8. Florida Met Fan Rich Says:

    the dude formerly known as bill l.: Did any of those other clubs have a payroll of $150 Million?

    Maybe it wasn’t as bad as it could have been, but finishing 4th and never ever really being in it is a “Crappy Season”!

    I know we had to eat this season but that dosen’t make me feel any better!

    Hope they reduce prices for tix for you guys next year.

    FMFR, it was a good season in which the club shed some contracts, developed some youngsters, built up the farm system and planned for the future. It was a “crappy season” in that the team didn’t play competitive games after July. But considering everything previously mentioned, I’ll take this “crappy” season because it was what needed to be done.

    Is this letter available in espanol?

  11. BrooklynBill Says:

    btw - if you haven’t seen Moneyball, I recommend it.

  12. CowCrusher Says:

    If Jose does take the Triborough Bridge to the Bronx for the Big Money, what would they ever do with their precious “Mr. 3000+”????

    Jose, to paraphrase the Jefferson Airplane, “Remember what the “Straw-Man” said!”

  13. Jason Bay Says:

    What about me? Don’t I get a love letter??


  14. ProfessorReyes Says:

    Holy cow.

  15. BrooklynBill Says:

    I’ve always liked Brandon Phillips. If the Reds don’t pick up his 2012 option, I would love to see him @ 2B for the NY Mets.

    Wow - has Reyes made his last curtain call as a Met?

  16. BlondiesJake Says:

    I also like Brandon Phillips but he’s not a pitcher and spending big $ (which is what Phillips will cost) for a non-pitcher at a position the Mets have plenty of candidates for doesn’t make much sense to me.

  17. CowCrusher Says:

    Naw, Jose will be the richest man in the D.R. If not in the top ten.

  18. CowCrusher Says:

    Oh well… was exciting for all of us Jose fans…. After tomorrow….. It may be his last as a Met…..unless Jerry Seinfeld has some “throw down cash” lying around to make him stay.;)

  19. BrooklynBill Says:

    Yes BJ, he would come @ a hefty price tag. If we’re not gonna overpay for our SS, we shouldn’t overpay for our 2B.

    Reyes @ SS, Phillips @ 2B? One can dream…
