Default Well Doesn't Look Like Pizza Will Make It

I just read that of the 15% of the vote counted Pizza only has 71.5% support for induction into the HOF

Looks like he'll fall just short this year


I still don't get it!

Good article on all the unfounded steroid accusations against Pizza:

spots are reserved for the other NY team that pads their stats with a little league distance fence.

I mean I get the steroid thing I guess for other guys.

But the evidence Pizza didn't use is far stronger than the evidence he did.

The informant in the Mitchell report was a Met's employee! Of the 89 players name 17 were Mets

How in the world if he was using did Pizza not end up on the list?

He had a really normal career arc for a HOF type player.... the only evidence against him is someone said he had bacne and that he was a late round draft pick.

Default Keith Law Has the Mets as the 6th Best Farm System in Baseball

WOW! First off most people consider Keith Law from ESPN a Mets hater. He had them middle of the pack at 15 last year which I thought was low considering they at the time had Wheeler, Thor, D'Arnaud ...

This year he has the Mets with the 6th best farm system in baseball. . Most still have them middle of the pack. The ranking is being driven by back end depth and the fact that the Mets had 5 of the top 100 prospects on his list.

3 of those 5, D'arnaud, Montero and Thor should all be in the majors at some point this year. The other two are Domick Smith who he has rated as the best 1b prospect in baseball and Nimmo. I don't believe in Nimmo but really do in Smith.

Mets Have The 6th Best Farm System in Baseball

d'ARNAUD is the starting Catcher. Montero might make the team out of camp.

One guys rating doesn't mean much to me. I wouldn't be surprised to see Jeffy Coupon trying sell that point tho...

They better have a top 5 farm system because with Jeffy Coupon running the business I will NEVER count on them spending relative to their place as a Top Market Team.
That bitch is going to have this team run like the Oakland A's or Kansas City Royals are run in their respective markets.

When I see it on paper otherwise, in team payroll, I'll believe it.

Two Thumbs down for Jeffy Coupon

They have Terry Collins on 'Mets Hot Stove' this week. It was interesting listening to him go over the team, and as always he has such a positive, upbeat, approach.
They're definitely better, and a little deeper depth wise, tho that's not saying much. It's a shame that Collins has done such a nice job and worked so hard with the POS hand he was dealt by the Coupons.
There's still a lot work to do in the makeup of this team. Hopefully things will clarify this season for Alderson and the rest of the 'dream team' front office so that maybe with a key free agent signing or two, the young pitchers maturing another year, Harvey coming back and hitting the ground running, the team can contend in 2015.

You hope at that point the Coupons will spend on the payroll fitting for what a top market team calls for.

In the meantime we can revel in the new team logo and different color shirt and other such Colossal BS that Jeffy Coupon can come up with...can't stand that li'l bitch
