i agree and the mets moto should be your past your prime come over here we give u the big bucks lol
Then answer the question. You guys profess to know their MO. And you were right -in the Steve Phillips era.
Bt this place continues to paint the Mets with that old brush. So tell me: What old past his prime vet has Duquette signed?
It depends. Was he on board when they signed Glavine?
The reason the Mets are a joke around here is because their objective for many years now has been to assemble as much talent as possible -- usually older -- then it has been to assemble a team. I don't even think you, Moose, can disagree that it has been a disaster for the most part.
Now, we here the talk that they believe they're one old superstar away from contention makes most of us snicker because that has been their thinking before the GM change. In most of our minds, if they sign Maddux it means nothing has changed in the organization. Meet the new boss, same as the old boss.
You can continue to last out at the Met jokes if you want, but in my opinion they are well deserved, especially since teams with half their payroll find ways to compete.
