This team isn't going anywhere. The Madoff situation wrecked this team and that's the bottom line.

The annual strategy was to look competitive on paper and go on about having "a shot to win this year." It was believable before, but not now.

To look competitive on paper they need another good power OF, and a couple of 2nd tier Ace type pitchers. Which they cannot afford because Madoff ruined the ownership. They could not even afford to keep Reyes. Although, it was better to let him go and spend the 20m on more important players, like an Ace pitcher. Sadly, they don't HAVE the 20m so that's why they let him go. They should've traded him to begin with.
I love mock drafts.

Lack of money is one thing but going out and signing Frank Francisco and Jon Rauch to anchor the bullpen was just flat out retarded.

Of course I'm only disgruntled because this means that somehow Frank made his way onto my fantasy roster again, this could get ugly.

Rauch is terrible. Frank Francisco is a more than decent option at closer though. Wouldn't at all be surprised to see him amongst the most valuable closers in baseball by the end of the season and he'll be dirt cheap, versus wasting money on somebody like Kimbrel.

Better than giving Papelbon 60 million, the Mets learned their lesson after K-Rod. I thought Francisco and Rauch were good moves, bad teams should never spend money on their bullpen. Both wouldn't be a problem to trade. The Mets don't have closer prospects anyway. The 2012 season is already over (cue Stewie gif), 2013 looks better when Wheeler and Harvey will be ready and Johan is fully recovered. All I'm hoping for this year is either Bay gets hurt or plays well enough to get traded and the Mets can only eat 2/3rds of his salary.

I thought BOGO was how the Mets typically acquired their pitching.

The next few years are going to be rough for the Mess. No hope until Bay and Santana's contracts come off the books and Wheeler+Harvey are ready to pitch in the big leagues. Mets in 2016.
