Anyone up for a mass Met suicide?

I'm pretty sure he meant Reyes at SS. Not only do I think Manny is possible, I think it's likely.

Anything is possible but they had a chance to get him for nothing when he was on waivers last year. It isn't like the Sox are going to chip in some of his salary. And most importantly IMO is that the Sox don't make the playoffs without Manny.

Sorry, that was a crappy lineup. I'm at work and shouldn't be on these boards anyway. Not that they should care, I work for a company that makes industrial, hydraulic lifts and telehandlers.


Anyway, I think Manny is a pretty good shot. The Sox basically don't want him and I think they would give him up to replace him with someone that fits in better with the frat guy clubhouse of Millar, Mueller, Varitek, Damon, et al.

The Mets will free up salary without Piazza. Soriano isn't likely... I thought he was a free agent this year, but it's actually after next year. And yes, I meant Reyes in the leadoff spot and Cameron in RF.

Do you think we'll hold on to Cameron? I think so. Ramon Hernandez is available next year too, he's a decent choice.

Huff isn't a free agent next year either so I don't know where I got that from. He's a possible 1B candidate, any other suggestions? Mike Jacobs is a possibility, but he's a catcher by trade too.

He was on waivers 2 seasons ago in the off-season and at the time the Mets didn't have interest in him for whatever reason. It's a shame for Mets fans but twice since then Omar and Theo have been in serious negotiations so it's not like some fantasy. It's come close to happening twice. Which leads me to believe it will happen because Omar apparently wants Manny and Theo apparently wants rid of him. When you add to that that the Mets are one of the few realistic trade partners for Manny it just seems very likely to me. I absolutely agree with you about Manny and the Sox. I don't totally understand their desire to get rid of him but it seems to me that they do want to shed his payroll.

It's Duquette or whoever's fault at the time we didn't get Manny. Probably more Wilpon's fault actually. I thinkwe take all of Manny's salary and give them Cameron in return. I don't think Damon will be back and they could use a CF. That leaves either Ffloyd or Diaz for RF.

And I agree, Soriano is a bad idea. I hear Texas might have some interest in moving Teixeira for some unknown and inane reason. I would love to see him here, but god only knows what they want in return. I'd give them about anyone but Milledge, and if it really came down to it I might consider him and maybe Petit but not much else.

There are a lot of decent 1B prospects, well major leaguers, available either via FA or trade. We need to get one, and like yesterday.

A cousin of mine who's still in high school and also a Met fan was given one of those prompts in English class where you are given the start of a paragraph and you have to finish it. The start was "Stinking heaps of dung moved officials to investigate..."

My cousin wrote:

Stinking heaps of dung moved officials to investigate the 2005 Mets playoff hopes. Acting on thousands of anonymous tips sent to the police and to Omar Minaya's office that the team was playing like utter crap, three unarmed policeman were sent to search the bullpen of Shea Stadium. Ironically, the unarmed policemen found a relief corps who pitched like they had no arms. The entire ballclub, with the exception of starting pitcher Pedro Martinez, shortstop Jose Reyes, and outfielder Cliff Floyd, are wanted, dead or alive.

I actually considered sending this in to the Mets after reading it.

I've got a scapegoat-Shingo Takatsu

The guy has been in four games for the Mets, We lost all four, He averages a hit, a Inning pitched, and 18 pitches an inning, 18,

Takatsu has allowed five of his six inherited runners to score but has not been charged with any of his own runs on his five appearances, the Westchester Journal-News reports.
