Default *** Official NY Mets Our OFFSEASON Has Come Thread ***

Just like it says. The old thread needs to die, alongside Mota and the rest of the suckos in the bullpen.

Just to recap our offseason so far (1 day):

- Will Willie be back? How bout Peterson?
- Wilpon's E-Mail Apology
- Schoeneweis is a roid raging sucky bullpen pitcher
- What players will be back?
- A discussion was going whether Duque in the pen made more sense than the rotation next year.

The following Mets are FA's:
Green (team option), Alou (team option), Glavine (option), Lo Duca, Castro, Castillo, Sosa, Valentin, Conine, Easley, Anderson, Sele, Williams, Lawrence

I can see them re-signing Castillo, Castro and possibly Alou from that list and that is all.

2008 FA's: Link.

Really I don't see a lot of help on that list. In order to improve this team it might be a case of addition by subtraction and giving some of our younger guys a chance. Trading Gomez, Pelfrey, Humber, etc is also a distinct possibility.

Schoeneweis needs to get back on the roids.

Doubly true for Mota.

I couldn't agree more, as does Mota.

Down got fired on July 12th. HoJo got promoted to hitting coach the next day and Henderson got brought on as a coach that same day as well.

Reyes was pretty much down hill since the All Star break. But he didn't completely fall off the map till September (.205/.279/.333).

Could be just a coincidence, could be HoJo/Henderson influence. It could be he completely responded in the wrong way from the tough love (benching, etc) from Willie.

don't think it was willie's fault with reyes here, he's benched reyes in previous spots and for the most part reyes responded fine, and has also been a big supporter to reyes imo

I'm just trying to blame Willie as much as possible whenever I can. :-)

Really though, I don't know if you can blame anyone for Reyes' slide the second half of the year. He probably just got himself in a rut and then put too much pressure on himself. He's young. He'll bounce back and he'll learn from this.

One of the blogs (domewright.com) says that there are rumors that a lot of the players are unhappy with Reyes. Will be interesting to hear what players say as time passes, and how this plays out.

According to ESPN, Mets stated that they will not fire Willie Randolph.

I'm sure that he's on a short leash though.

interesting who has problems with reyes and for what reasons, they can't get mad at a young kid for hitting a slump, might have been work ethic too as he has occasionally dogged it, though my guess is that some of that stuff is exaggerated and willie just wants to make sure he's on top of reyes...

unless it's a core player, if they have 'major' problems with reyes, like the blog said, they need to get shipped the [censored] out, the mets can't let this stuff stew
