Statistics On Viagra

Drink alcohol with viagra

Drink alcohol with viagra Anthony DiComo covers the Mets for MLB.com, drink alcohol with viagra he sat down with Jeff Wilpon the other day to get a State of the Mets report. Drink alcohol with viagra Here are some highlights with my commentary in italics.

Drink alcohol with viagra MLB.com: This is a Mets club that has not seriously competed for a playoff spot in six years, drink alcohol with viagra but that has a strong farm system and signed several big league free agents this winter. Drink alcohol with viagra What’s your take on the current state of the Mets?

Drink alcohol with viagra Jeff Wilpon: I think we’re in a better state than we’ve been, drink alcohol with viagra and we’re ready to move forward with the plan that [general manager] Sandy [Alderson] put in place three years ago. Drink alcohol with viagra This is going into the fourth season of his plan, drink alcohol with viagra and we’re primed to take advantage of that.

Drink alcohol with viagra How long have we been hearing this answer from Jeffey and the other movers and shakers in the organization? Primed to take advantage of what? No one looks at this Mets team as a serious contender for post season play, drink alcohol with viagra so what exactly is the team primed for?

Drink alcohol with viagra MLB.com: Was this the year that you and the front office pointed to all along for a return to competitiveness?

Drink alcohol with viagra Wilpon: We try to be competitive each of the years we go out on the field. Drink alcohol with viagra I don’t think any player would ever tell you they don’t try to be competitive. Drink alcohol with viagra But because of some of the expiring contracts and some of that freedom, drink alcohol with viagra just by virtue of this being the year all that was going to happen, drink alcohol with viagra you hoped this would also be the year some of our young talent would come into its own.

Drink alcohol with viagra Remember last year the big push was for a 3rd place finish so what is the prime goal this year an 81-81 record? Think like a loser and a loser you shall be. Drink alcohol with viagra This is my main problem with the brain trust of the Mets all the talk is about being “competitive”. Drink alcohol with viagra When do they start putting the emphasis on “winning”? When does management start putting the heat on the manager, drink alcohol with viagra coaches and players that anything short of a playoff spot is an unadulterated failure?

Drink alcohol with viagra MLB.com: How about manager Terry Collins?

Drink alcohol with viagra Wilpon: We extended Terry’s contract, drink alcohol with viagra so we’re very happy with him — with his energy and his relationships with the players and making guys get better, drink alcohol with viagra which is always a good thing. Drink alcohol with viagra There have been a bunch of guys Sandy’s brought in on Minor League contracts and put them out there, drink alcohol with viagra and they’ve performed. Drink alcohol with viagra You can go through a pretty long list the last couple years, drink alcohol with viagra and not only do Sandy and his staff get credit, drink alcohol with viagra but Terry and his staff get credit for making them really usable pieces. Drink alcohol with viagra Some of them we’ve traded and gotten back fruit from those trades as well.

Drink alcohol with viagra In Collins’ 3 years as Mets manager the team record is 225-261 .463 winning percentage. Drink alcohol with viagra  I wish Jeffey mentioned this long list of players that Collins and his staff made into better ballplayers? Sure Marlon Byrd revived his career as a Met but how much did Collins and hitting coach Dave Hudgens have on his success? The rumor was Byrd contradicted the approach on hitting that the organization preaches. Drink alcohol with viagra Why did it take a trip to Las Vegas and working with Wally Backman and George Greer to get Ike Davis finding his way somewhat at the plate?   Collins still hasn’t grasped the way to run a bullpen and at times seems timed in letting starting pitchers go further in games. Drink alcohol with viagra  

Drink alcohol with viagra I’ll give Collins this much, drink alcohol with viagra he has more than vindicated himself as a manager from his other posts in Anaheim and Houston. Drink alcohol with viagra He has never lost control of the clubhouse and he handles the media well, drink alcohol with viagra but it also helps the writers who cover the Mets never challenge him.

Drink alcohol with viagra MLB.com: What is your response to fans who wished you had done one or two more things this winter, drink alcohol with viagra such as sign free agent shortstop Stephen Drew?

Drink alcohol with viagra Wilpon: If those one or two things were there, drink alcohol with viagra we would have expanded the budget for them. Drink alcohol with viagra Just to get a guy because the fans think that’s the right thing to do, drink alcohol with viagra that’s not part of the plan. Drink alcohol with viagra Sandy’s not going to overspend for something he doesn’t see value in. Drink alcohol with viagra The value that we see in those guys versus what their agents were asking for does not meet.

Drink alcohol with viagra Ummmmmmm… when you’re having a tough time selling tickets is it wise not to tweak the fans/paying customers like that? If you want to take people to task over the Stephen Drew frenzy blame your incumbent shortstop, drink alcohol with viagra the GM and the manager because they have fed the beast. Drink alcohol with viagra Alderson and Collins have called Ruben Tejada out in the media and the fans eyes don’t lie when watching Tejada and reading his stat line that an upgrade at shortstop in needed. Drink alcohol with viagra     

Drink alcohol with viagra Sure Drew/Boras are  playing hardball here and  I have no problem with Alderson staring them down but let’s face facts here it’s not just Mets fans who feel that Drew would be a major upgrade at short for the team but the majority of baseball talent evaluators feel the same way as well.

Drink alcohol with viagra MLB.com: There’s a perception out there that your payroll is well below what a big-market team should spend.

Drink alcohol with viagra Wilpon: I would point to the fact that you don’t have to have that kind of payroll to win.

Drink alcohol with viagra Answer the question Jeffey, drink alcohol with viagra that’s not an answer.

Drink alcohol with viagra MLB.com: How difficult has it been for you and ownership to go through the past half-decade without winning nearly as much as you’d like?

Drink alcohol with viagra Wilpon: We’ve all hoped to do better, drink alcohol with viagra but as I think I’ve explained in the past, drink alcohol with viagra hope isn’t a good business plan. Drink alcohol with viagra Hope hasn’t gone as far as we’ve liked, drink alcohol with viagra but I think we have more certainties this year than we’ve had in the past, drink alcohol with viagra so there are fewer things to hope on. Drink alcohol with viagra But any team that goes out there hopes for a good season, drink alcohol with viagra hopes to stay healthy and hopes some of the young kids can contribute. Drink alcohol with viagra We’re in the same position.

Drink alcohol with viagra I hope it doesn’t snow today. Drink alcohol with viagra I hope I get a seat on the subway. Drink alcohol with viagra I hope the burrito I had for lunch doesn’t give me heartburn. Drink alcohol with viagra HOPE. Drink alcohol with viagra Successful sport teams don’t run on hope they run on the mindset that they are here to win. Drink alcohol with viagra Again that is a big problem with this organization, drink alcohol with viagra no one in authority demands winning. Drink alcohol with viagra It’s that kind of attitude that produces players like Ruben Tejada and Jordany Valdespin. Drink alcohol with viagra Look how long it took for the organization to rid itself if the malcontent Valdespin. Drink alcohol with viagra Even with sending Tejada to conditioning camp in Michigan where is the competition for the shortstop job? If the team is serious about having Wilmer Flores get work at shortstop then go for it. Drink alcohol with viagra Don’t half ass it put the challenge to Tejada.

Drink alcohol with viagra Okay I’m done go back to looking at Twitter and Instagram at pictures of players having a catch and stretching. Drink alcohol with viagra Whatever gets you though the winter I guess?
