There is a segment of Mets fans who I bet are envious of the fans of the Washington Nats today as the D.C. rooters are reveling in the fact that their owner ponied up stupid money for Jayson Werth. Some of you miss those good old days when the Mets tossed around those dead presidents like they were Penny Saver coupons in an apartment building lobby, but I guess you all suffer from temporary amnesia since the last Championship flag to fly over a facility where the Mets work was 25 years ago.  I mean some of you are bitching about the Mets not going balls in on free agent, GET OVER IT those days a done, instead of going over the free agent lists I strongly advise you take a strong interest in the high school and college players eligible for the June entry draft

The Nationals are where the Mets were five years ago when they had to bribe players to wear the Mets uni with more years and more money than anyone else in baseball would. How did it work out? Pedro Martinez spent more time in St Lonesome than Flushing. Carlos Beltran and Scott Boras went to the Highlander with a last minute plea to make an offer as they hemmed and hawed about taking the Mets deal to either match or come close to the Mets offer so Beltran could patrol the green pastures of the South Bronx.  Then of course there are the deals that will live in franchise infamy like OP, Castillo and the Grand Daddy of them all, Bobby Bonilla’s contract of perpetuity and I’m not even counting Johan Santana and K-Rod’s deal that will take up $126 mil combined over the next four seasons and you want to know why after surveying this payroll carnage, Sandy Alderson has decided to stop the madness?

Really get over yourselves Mets fans, stop the bullshit about “oh we’re gonna suck next season” and “I can’t believe they cut Chris Carter, he was a warrior” “There’s no way they can trade Reyes or Beltran and if they do I’ll never root for this team again” WHAAAAA! WHAAAA! WHAAA!  you sound like a bunch of fucking rubes.  THIS ORGANZIATION TRADED THE GREATEST PLAYER IN FRANCHISE HISTORY AND THOSE US WHO WERE AROUND THEN ARE STILL HERE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Whew!!! Sorry for screaming but this “whole woe is a Mets fans” shit is making my blood boil.

I have no idea if Sandy Alderson will make this team a contender or if he can build the farm system for players that can useful playing for the Mets or for barter but I’m willing to wait and see if he can. I’m much more excited about 2011 as I was about 2010. I’m not in the gloom and doom mood I was last winter with this organization, shi,t I haven’t said anything nasty about Jeffey Skill  Sets in a month, that’s what you call progress.  Alderson has a track record of success so that’s why I feel the future looks brighter than most of you do.

  1. Agreed, Steve. As I’ve said elsewhere, I’m up for trading anyone on the team, including Reyes and Wright, if we get the right return. I think they’re both more valuable now than they will be in 2 years.

    That said, I still remember and rue the day they traded The Franchise…. But I’m still here, too.

  2. Agree 100%

  3. they cut Chris Carter?…
    The Werth deal is as asinine as the Bey deal, better someone else gets him, plus, that is a much bigger park then the bandbox known as citizens bank park.Werth will not make up the Difference of Dunne.There will be no big news from the mets, unless they give up Reyes in a A Gonzalez type of return[meaning what the Pads got.}Hell at this point, whatever,right.If you’re gonna’ start from scratch, then do it.Strip em, Sando

  4. Stupid Stuff;

    1- The Werth deal.
    2- Gillick in the HOF before Miller. That really sucks.

  5. Dan Gurney says:

    We should rejoice that the Gnats have hurt their finances by giving 7 years 126 million to a pretty good but aging corner outfieldet. Just as good is the possibility Jeff Francoeur may sign in Philadelphia.

    I think higher of the Pedro./beltran signings than you do, Krane, but this move is nothing for the Mets to emulate. The June draft will be more telling of the Alderson administration.

    God knows I was in hysterics when M Donald exiled Seaver (and Kingman) but that didn’t stop me from rooting for Zachry and Henderson (which was mostly futile). But good times will come again.

  6. Good one, Krane. Do you think that when things go bad, Werth will show’em the Bronx? Do they have a Bronx in DC?

  7. kranepool says:

    Agree on both those points Michael and I’d add George Steinbrenner before Pat Gilick as well
