    Our only REAL hope, is if the Wilpons sold the team, and that's probably not happening either.
    I don't think the Wilpons want to go halvsies again but I also think that they might not have control of it... The money they lost with Madoff and the coming commercial real estate mortgage bust are really going to crush them even more than the new ballpark can offset...

    Well, the Wilpons are enamored with Omar and even if they did fire him, they would probably promote Tony B. to GM... That still doesn't help any of us...

    I agree with everything you said. The big problem is.... How does anyone convince the Wilpons ? They seem to feel Omar is the greatest GM in the History of baseball.

    Sadly, no matter how much any of us, or the Media kicks and screams.... it's the Wilpons Organization to destroy, and they are doing a fine job of it, while laughing all the way to the Bank. It sucks to be a Mets fan these days.

    Terrible moves lately for some mediocre talent, poor contracts... Handing free money out is not a way to make a successful franchise unless you are willing to hand even more out when things start going badly (like the Yanks)...

    This team's overall philisophy is very, very poor.

    To quote the Talking Heads:

    "same as it ever was, same as it ever was"

    I sat in a restaurant bar last night having to hear all the Phillies fans hooting and hollering as their team won. The Phillies were on the main TV and the Mets were playing on one of the corner TVs. I was relieved when it was over since I could watch my team in peace. But when the Phillies game was over, they switched the main TV over to the Mets game, and I had to hear another half hour of hooting and hollering as the Mets blew the game and lost.

    I really hate the Mets right about now.

    He did fix the bullpen; he cut their balls off and they are now the same scared ***** 3 legged dog that we all know and love.

    Omar can't be expected to be working on trades. He's far too busy fleecing the Wilpons, and getting another 4 year extension for the outstanding job he's done this season.

    Omar says no offense helps the bullpen because you can't blow leads you don't have.

    I hope Jose has been working on some fancy handshakes while on vacation...

    Who else can't stand Jonas Schwartz?

    This was the asshat who kept telling everyone on NYDN Live that the Mets have the best rotation in the NL.

    Once Reyes will be traded everything will be fine. Winners such as Cora will lead em to the top of the heap. You know the Ny media probably thinks that. Cora is all gritty and gutty afterall.
