Instead of talking about the outstanding pitching performance by 35 year old top pitching prospect Nelson Figueroa, Mets are still discussing whether the Skill Sets will turn the franchise into the biggest small market team in baseball.


Reports over the weekend by former Mets GM Jim Duquette claimed the Mets were abandoning the Florida Fall Instructional League to financial constrainants. The Skill Sets claim it’s not so that they are moving the Fall operation to their Academy in the Dominican due to better competition in the DR.


Now I’d love to come here are kill The Duke but the problem is I don’t who to trust here. See the Skill Sets have pissed on my leg so many times and told me it’s raining that anything that comes out of their mouths is met with a BULLSHIT refrain.


That is the biggest problem with this organization. They have no creditability. The Skill Sets have proclaimed that the ball club is on solid financial ground and no way in hell will they take on a partner or sell the club. The more Freddy Skill Sets makes this point all I do is see Bill Clinton claiming he did not have sex with that woman, Ms. Lewinsky and Raphael Palmerio sticking his finger at Congress proclaiming his innocence  of steroid use.  


The one sliver of evidence that gives the Mets a bit of creditability when it comes to spending is, it looks like this winter will be a very quiet on when it comes to free agent signings. There doesn’t look to be the ‘it” player out there that teams will push to sign no matter the cost. In fact the market will most likely wait for the non-tenders to flood the market to bring prices down even more. So instead of a check book what a team needs is a savvy talent evaluator to make smart signings and to get production for less money. In other words Mets fans, we’re fucked.
