What about pursuing a guy like Adam Dunn and trying to convert him to 1B? I mean despite his K's he's one of the biggest HR hitters in baseball, and would atleast bring in runs for us...

Great outing by Gomez, really excited to see what more he can do, hopefully he gets in a groove now.

I know it's ridiculously early, but I've got Reyes as a front runner in the NL MVP candidate.
I also think it's between Reyes and Fielder right now.

As I said recently Delgado is done as a middle of the order hitter. He has been late on everything this year and as Max said he can't do that with that huge uppercut swing of his.

My favorite 1b prospect (other then Fernando) is Nick Evans. He has a chance to be a masher.

Unfortunately, he's about 2 years away, if not more.

And Fernando is probably even longer away, I think we're gunna have to make some sort of trade to acquire a first baseman, because there are no good, upcoming FA's. Teixiera's on the block...

Glavine has truly lost it...I hope that he gets 300 this year, for his sake, and so he can retire.

Yeah, he really needs to get 300, because that will signal the end. This is a little blurb I found the other day.


The Hartford Courant reports New York Mets SP Tom Glavine will consider retiring after the 2007 season. "If I had to guess right now, I think I'm 50-50," Glavine said. "If I stay healthy and I win my 300th game, I think it becomes really hard for me to pitch next year. But if I do that - like last year, if I win 15 games - it's going to be hard to walk away." Glavine has a $9 million player option with the Mets for the 2008 season.

Beltran + Delgado = washed up stars making ridiculous sums of money...ftw???

I knew it from the minute he started with the Mets organization that Beltran was gunna be nothing worth the money. What's up with him not even stealing anymore?

Oh well, Wright and Reyes are gunna be top 10 ball-players for the next 15 years, so I guess it evens out..

Yea, he's really been somethin the last few games, my one problem with him, is that he's horrible, absolutely horrible, at initially judging fly balls. That's about it though, hopefully that comes with experience. Other than that, he's really starting to come together very nicely.

I would call him bad at it. Not horrible. It really doesn't matter though, because his speed will let him get to 95% of the balls.

He's used to playing CF. The more time he has in the corners the less that will be a problem.

Beltran is not washed up he is probably playing more injured than we realized.

Mets, meaning Fred Wilpon, are/is looking to purchase a MLS team or start a new one up to play at Citi Field by 2009, just thought that was pretty cool.

I don't pay attention to MLS but I think NY already has the Red Bulls, don't they?

There aren't enough soccer fans to sustain 2 soccer teams in 1 city, not even in NY.

Well technically it's the NY/NJ Red Bull, and it's definitely more NJ because they play at Continental Arena.

Maybe if they can get Drogba on the team, I'll be interested.

I don't want a soccer team playing at Citi Field. It would rip the field up and be a terrible idea. Keep it baseball only, that's it.

The Mets seriously need to hold a players only team meeting to light a fire under themselves because we're losing VERY important ground on the Braves and Phils
