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

A lot of people have come forward and reported that Castillo had a negative influence on Jose Reyes.

Still reeling from the collapse to contribute this post other than Willie Randolph needs to have complete control.

I did not listen to the Mike and Mad Dog interview today with Willie yet.

According to several sources, Willie had his hands tied when it came to discipling his own players.

When Willie first arrived he ran a tight ship, it seems things slipped away.

This team needs an overhall. I would welcome the team to trade Milledge or Beltran for a quality pitcher.

I never liked Tom Glavine and felt he came to the Mets to get his 300th win. I do not want him back because he did nothing for the Mets to help the Mets win.

wow, interesting gossip that castillo was a negative influence on reyes, he's expendable adn i wouldn't mind seeing a prospect take his place (or at least teach gotay how to play defense)

it would take a miracle, i.e., santana, to get the mets to move beltran and even that is unfeasible as the twins wouldn't want that contract...also, heck, i'd like to see beltran stick around, he's arguably the most valuable player on the team
