Alex,

Love you too but I don't know about the future. I used to be a season ticket holder, 8 feet past 1st base, 3rd and 4th row off the field, great seats, big price increases every year until the new stadium, finally quit, wasn't going to pay big bucks for the whole season.   

I just don't believe they are very good this year and let's see if they can have these prospects advance.

They are not good this year, I agree and if someone gave me an over under bet at 78 I'd bet the new car on the under.  The one thing the financial issues of the Wilpons forced was the need to make the farm good again.  As someone who gets to his fair share of games, they've done so.  Will it translate in to big league success?  There's no guarantees but what success has there been doing it the way they had been doing it.  Nothing minus nothing is still nothing.  No where to go BUT up.

disagree but we'll see

I grew up going to Shea and it was a great place to stretch out with lots of empty seats in the 70's

Familia was decent in Binghamton last year even though he had limited chances.
Replaces Burke who was terrible.

another of the mets good young arms


Jacob deGrom was outstanding in his AA debut: 8 IP, 3 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 1 BB, 8 K. He threw 68% of his pitches (69 of 101) for strikes, and induced 10 groundouts while allowing only three flyball outs.

deGrom had made a total of six starts in advanced-A with a 2.41 ERA and 31 strikeouts against eight walks in 33.2 innings. At 24 years old, and turning 25 in June, he’s done with the level and in AA for good. deGrom has great pitcher’s build at a lean 6’4″ and can run his fastball up to 95 with some sink. My pre-season #8 prospect, he’s absolutely an arm to watch.

Particularly in September.  Pay for the cheap seats and sit behind the dugout.

first of many of this super matchup.  The Mets don't have the bats to hang but the pitchers are worth the dough.

non-displaced fractures are not that unusual -- ESPECIALLY for catchers.

Neither Tejada nor Murphy seemed to enjoy diving on the frozen ground in Denver.

I'll be catching snippets of the game tonight from the swamp.

Yup -- nothin' worse than front runners who abandon their teams when things look bleak.  Baseball is fun, and every year there are teams who don't have a prayer who make things exciting.  Last year it was the A's and the Orioles.

So far this year its the Rockies and the Royals.  The Rockies, Royals and Mets need some unexpected surprises from their pitching staffs to be around at the end of the year.

No depth in starting rotation, weak bullpen, bad defense, & marginal hitting adds up to a long season.
