    Just for the absolute f***ing Tatis nonsense, I hope so too.

    And I hope he does something dumb with the trophy.

    Giving up Smith was idiotic.

    Cole has been underwhelming lately. His command isn't where it needs to be. I wonder about this inexperienced pitching coach that they hired.

    Did not understand it. Castro is fine, but the price was not worth it.

    Castro is Famila without the track record. Great arm, very wild.

    Think they're going to run Lugo as an SP now and if he does really well, can see them letting Stroman walk. Thor comes back, Petersen as the 4th guy and find solid 5th guy.

    That being said, much would have preferred giving away Porcello and Wacha then just pitch the young guys.

    They are pushing to try and lose to the Dodgers. No chance this season.

    Quite possible. Another concern is that he's away from the Houston voodoo.

    pitcher acquired last month from texas for a player to be named later

    why he is starting for the mets...cause the mets are terrible and brodie is still the gm....and also 2/3 of the staff is hurt and they have to play like 19 games in 6 days lol

    I'm just shaking my head. Even with all the injuries too the pitching staff, one would have thought that with the lineup we could trot out there on a daily basis, we could at worst make it too the playoff tournament which was expanded to 8 teams if not contend for the division.

    No playoffs and teams like the Marlins and Orioles are much better than them....who knew?

    Instead we have pretty much every bat other than Conforto, Dom Smith and Cano under performing severely. McNeil is a shell of the guy he was last year. I thought he was slump proof with a batting eye and stroke like that....guess not.

    You knew Alonso would have a bit of downturn as no way could he perform like he did last year when he was phenomenal. But .200 with just 6 homers and less than 20 Ribs at this point after 35 games? Really Pete?

    Ramos and Rosario have been pitiful. Rosario especially. WTF?? He looked like he was ascending after last seasons bigtime 2nd half. Now...I don't know what the F they do with him. Ramos...let him go after the year....very dissapointing.

    I'm telling you...the only guys I'd keep on the Mets as far offensively for absolute sure would be Conforto, Alonso, Nimmo and McNeil. I'd like to keep Dom Smith and Davis however if I got some solid prospects for them, I'd let them go. Everyone else tho can be had.

    As far as pitching...only guys I keep are Jake, Noah, Lugo....that's it! Everyone else can be had. And too be honest, if someone gave me something good for Noah, I'd consider it.

    What a shit show this team has become. Only hope now is with Wilpons gone, for Cohen too have control of the team and pull some "George Steninbrenner lite" antics and do whatever needs to be done to bring a winner too Queens.

    If the DH is a forever move I absolutely keep Dom Smith. Honestly he should be playing in the field with Alonso at DH.

    Yeah I'd keep him too if DH is a certainty. Amazing the difference being in shape dropping 20-25 pounds has done for Dom. He's a completely different player and he's damn productive too. Supposedly from what I read, he's most popular guy in the room too.

    So yeah, I'd do everything I can too keep him. I wouldn't be surprised tho if another team or two came too the Mets and wanted him and would give up a solid prospect so he could be solid trade bait...just sayin!

    Conforto is going into his last arbitration year and will probably get $15-20 million but will probably seek a long term deal . His agent is Scott Boras. Without Steve Cohen buying the team I don't see Conforto here beyond next year if even that. Regarding Dom Smith I also don't see him with the Mets long term with Alonso at first. I think he would look good in a Yankee uniform.
