    Who knew Richard Nixon was a Mets fan?

    Yup, solid but unspectacular. I liked him.

    On a side note the Chiefs game is making remember Mahomes Sr. and his time as a relief pitcher with the Mets. From what I remember he was pretty solid the year or two here.

    Despite it being an active off season I still have my doubts. The 2002 off season comes to mind. At the time it looked a lot of solid pickups that offseason but that year turned out to be a disaster. Roberto Alomar, Mo Vaughn, Kevin Appier, Roger Cedeno, etc... Of course I hope to be shown wrong as some dumb cynical poster.

    Avoided arbitration. A sign of good will.

    Mets sign deGrom to one year, %17 million (record setting raise). Long term contract could be coming. http://www.espn.com/mlb/story/_/id/25737768/new-york-mets-jacob-degrom-agree-17-million-1-year-contract

    This came as a breath of fresh air to me. Quotes from an article about new Mets hitting coach Chili Davis, link to article below: "Chili Davis will be just fine with the Mets swinging for the fences less frequently this season." "The veteran hitting coach, hired last month by the Mets as part of manager Mickey Callaway’s retooled staff, will be preaching contact this spring" https://nypost.com/2019/01/11/chili-davis-pushing-mets-to-old-school-controversial-hitting-approach/ Kind of amazing that putting the ball in play is considered "controversial" in some circles. Probably just the NY Post headline writers, but it's still nauseating.

    At this stage of the winter... My needs: One more arm for the pen,I hate the idea of having Conlon getting that role. 5/6 starter....I have a bad feeling about Vargas this year. So..they will probably add another outfielder.
  12. SinceThe70s

    Mets fans?

    I don't think they're making him an outfielder. More like a Super Joe McEwing jack-of-all trades guy. That said I agree with your plan, except I don't think we're bringing in another outfielder.
  13. Gugny

    Mets fans?

    I'm sorry, but I'm sick of this crap. If we need an outfielder (we do), then go get a mother ***** outfielder. Don't make one of our infielders a ***** outfielder. Get an outfielder. Dump Frazier. Put McNeil at 3B. Make Lowrie the new Wilmer and play some ***** baseball the right way.
  14. SinceThe70s

    Mets fans?

    Since they signed Lowrie, there are a lot of reports floating around about McNeil playing some OF, but it's nothing new. When Wilpon, VW and Mickey went on WFAN they talked about McNeil being able to play in the outfield. Also: https://nypost.com/2018/12/12/mickey-callaway-reveals-jeff-mcneils-role-on-new-look-mets/ If he can play adequately at different positions McNeil could be like Zobrist. If he plays LF like Todd Hundley, "check please!". I do hope they can move Frazier, I'm with you blue...that batting average is a boat anchor.
  15. Gugny

    Mets fans?

    This will piss me off to no end. I've already had enough of Callaway playing people out of position. It will really, really piss me off.
  16. Misterbluesky

    Mets fans?

    If Frazier isn't unloaded,his .220-25 ish BA won't be tolerated,that's for sure.Add another rumor into this drama...some in the inner circle are saying McNeil is going to play some CF in ST. Stay tuned.
  17. Gugny

    Mets fans?

    All good theories. My HOPE is that Lowrie was brought in to fill the void left by Wilmer Flores' departure. We all know how Callaway refuses to put the same lineup on the field two days in a row (maybe he's a Grateful Dead fan), so perhaps this is for flexibility. I would be perfectly fine with McNeil at 3B and Cano at 2B, with Lowrie spelling each of them. I like Frazier's leadership, but if we can get more production, I say do it.
  18. Misterbluesky

    Mets fans?

    McNeil is officially buried now...what a shame. Or Frazier is going to be traded.
  19. SinceThe70s

    Mets fans?

    The Mets signed 34 year old infielder Jed Lowrie to a 2 year deal. Predominantly a second baseman. https://www.newsday.com/sports/baseball/mets/jed-lowrie-luis-avilan-sign-1.25787612 Somebody explain this to me. Cano gonna get suspended again? McNeil about to get traded or likes to hit women? I am at a total loss.
  20. Misterbluesky

    Mets fans?

    I saw that..that's as odd as the organization welcoming Conlon back and waving good bye to Borenstein.So much for David taking a break...baseball is in his blood and guts..I love it. On another note: Ronnie dropped a strange comment about the two latest trades,he said they add needed depth...he went on and told Russo he thought the second half minor league call ups involved true minor league players that are not full time MLB players...I took that comment as basically calling McNeil a career farm guy.Just one more sign that Mick is going to give Smith every opportunity to win the first base job,even though Alonso was never called up....

    I have access now. Can this thread be removed?

    Can't view main Board

    Not sure where else to post. Since the upgrades about a hour ago I can't view the main board and I can't send any messages. Can anyone help me or get an admin to explain why I can't view the main Board?

    David Wright takes job in Mets' front office. http://www.espn.com/mlb/story/_/id/25708076/new-york-mets-add-former-captain-david-wright-front-office
  24. Gugny

    These guys might just be trade bait. McNeil HAS to be on solid footing.
  25. Misterbluesky

    Mets fans?

    Things keep getting tougher for McNeil to be a key member of this team like he was in the second half of last season.

    The Yankees are Fun to Watch

    Yankees signed up Tulowitzki for half a million, the Jays still on the hook for $20 million (or thereabouts on both figures) can't blame the Jays for ditching him, would have been possibly better to have him show up for ST and see what's going on watch him crush it for the Yankees....
