Andres Torres' non-slide down 6 in the 10th last night is what's most troubling to Rich.

Interesting.

It's the only non-slide associated with the Mets lately.

BOOM!

I find TC answers to be troubling. AT this point couldnt care less about a take out slide that never happened.

That and the $25M the mets spent this past offseason. If I had to guess, the plan was to spend foolishly so that this offseason they dont. With the excuse being, we dont have the "resources" to do so.

As asinine as that last remark sounds, it may end up being true.

These aren't TC comments; you're in the "Sh*t Coutinho Says" thread.

coutinho9 Marlin story should be a lesson to us all throwing money at the problem often backfires slow and steady is the way to rebuild

Clearly, thats the lesson here.

I assume Coutinho is loving the 2010-2011-2012 progress much more than the 2004-2005-2006 progress, right?

I'm pretty sure the problem is having Jeffrey Loria as your owner.

Braves are supposedly out on Dempster, leaving the Dodgers confident they can strike a deal.

Somebody CLEARLY forgot to tell the Dodgers, who finished 8 games out of the playoffs last year, that only small, baby steps should be made this year. They are clearly setting themselves up for failure with all these "sudden improvements."

Mets are 2 games worse this year than they were last year at this time, and 2.5 games worse than they were at this time in 2010.

Just shows what a difference a new owner who wants to win can make. Bottom line... I'm pretty close to the point where I don't see the Mets being good unless/until we have a new owner/front office :oops: Look at the Cubs and the aggressive moves they have made. Rome wasn't built in a day but people didn't just assuming "waiting" would build Rome.
