GOBBLE GOBBLE

 

I thought I’d look at some of the Mets news of the day before I start reading more into the new CBA that seems to have those who follow amateur baseball and player development up in arms with how many restrictions there will be on clubs when it comes to drafting players from the June entry draft and players from the International player pool.

It figures when the Mets have made it their mission statement to invest in the draft and in cultivating home grown talent that these new restrictive rules go into effect.

If we see Adam Lowden roaming the outfield of Citi Field in 2012, it won’t be a good sign.

Jose Reyes finished 11th in MVP voting, to me that does not translate into a 6yr/$120 mil player

Jerry Seinfeld just got a dog and he named him Jose after Jose Reyes, he’s a cute little dog but he’s no Shamsky. By the way why can’t celebrity Mets fans like Seinfeld, Jon Stewart, Matthew Broderick, Ray Romano, Kevin James, Chris Rock to name a few form a syndicate and buy out the Skill Sets?

That’s it for today and until Friday unless Bernie Madoff sends Freddy Skill Sets a note from the big house on where he buried the missing millions he pilfered (I have a vision of the boardwalk at Brighton Beach as a starting point) and the Mets announce the signing of Reyes,  Albert Pujols , Mark Buehrle and C.J. Wilson if not enjoy your Thanksgiving, put your worrying about the Mets on the back burner and look around the table at dinner and give thanks for those who are with you and remember those who aren’t.

METS MINUTIA

 

 

The regurgitation of Jose Reyes’  free agent news   reminds me of Benjamin “Bubba” Blue in the movie Forest Gump when he talks about all the ways you can prepare shrimp, you can fry ‘em, bake ‘em, sautee ‘em…………………..where only a simpleton like Gump would listen intently. 

Speaking of simpletons, the Phily Phboy of the Daily News had an in depth report on the Mets choices for center field in 2012. Here we see with why he thinks Coco Crisp should be the club’s next CF’er:

Coco Crisp

Upside: Would be a fun name to write and say.

Go back to your coloring books now Andy.

I do agree with Martino on Pagan, the rumblings around the team is Pagan and Ronnie Paulino have piss poor attitudes that both Terry Collins and Sandy Alderson want eradicated  from the clubhouse . Omar would have given both players 5 year deals.

No way do I want to see Rick Ankiel in CF in 2012, I could live with Crisp and his shitty OBP for a year I guess but I’d much rather have B.J. Upton and make him perform for a contract. As I’ve written before make a big deal of Upton and Ben Zorbrist for Pelfrey, Parnell, Murphy and a low level minor leaguer. If that can’t be worked out then get creative with Grady Sizemore.

Joel Sherman and his one note band has more Reyes Reruns. Lather Rinse Repeat.

The Mets lost their Director of Amateur Scouting, Chad MacDonald to the Padres where he will be new GM Josh Byrnes right hand man and as much as it’s sad that MacDonald, a force behind last year’s Mets draft that got high marks from those who follow amateur baseball, it is refreshing to see another team coveting a member of the Mets front office. Really who ever wanted to steal Tony Bernazard away from the Mets? The UFC? The Mets will stay in house by promoting scout Tommy Tanous to MacDonald’s old post.
