AmazinZ...R.e. Piazza .. As an avid Mets Fan .. I thank Mike Piazza for 7 years of hustle, pride, professionalism, and toughness. He certainly bought respectability back to the organization. When he gets voted into the Hall Of Fame I hope he wears a Met uniform. With that said, I dont think it would be a good idea to have him come back. He is very old for a catcher, he cannot throw and continues to get worse at the plate. Thank you Mike for everything, but its time to move on. As for Jacobs, the Mets are too close to be a winner to experiment with Jacobs, he could be good, he could also be another K Maas. As for 2B .. once again. I would not gamble with rookies Keppinger and Anderson - They are too close to being really good - they can and should get an established 2B.
Iconoclastic... R.e. Reyes. I am not down on J Reyes at all, I love his intensity, I love that he is home grown, I love watching him round second and head to third. He plays the game the way it ought to be played. With that said - J Reyes is a free swinger, this past years OnBase % was 300. By moving Reyes down in the order he can continue being agressive without the pressure of having to get on base. I dont believe J Reyes will ever contend for a batting title, he doesnt have the discipline! Just watch his approach. Finally I think J Reyes will be an exciting and productive ball player though.
As for giving up J Seo for J LaRue, you have to give something to get something in return. J LaRue for Seo would benefit both teams.
As for getting a closer... I would love to see them sign BJ Ryan 28 year old lefthanded closer, with a nasty streak and bulldog mentality. He would be a better investment than the 5 '9 oft-injured, 34 year old -B Wagner
MWeir45... r.e O Hudson ... Thats not good, that the Jays want to keep him, it messes up all my plans LOL ..
