Do we see the same ole methodical Sandy this offseason?

or

Do we get a more aggressive approach since this is his last go with the team?

I know they made the World Series and the one-game playoffs last year, but overall........it hasn't been a great run for the guy with the Mets.

I feel like the World Series appearance should barely count since the team barely showed up for it.

I don't think that's fair. Many of the games went down to the bullpen.

Game 1 was won by 1 run over 14 innings.
Games 2/3 were one sided but one for each team.
Game 4 our pen blew a 3-2 lead, lost 5-3.
and game 5 went into extra innings too.

3 of those loses, one hit or one pitch could have made the difference. It was a closer series than the 4-1 final made it look. I know what you mean, it felt like they were never in it, but I think they certainly showed up. You don't lose two games in extra innings when you don't show up.

The Cubs didn't show up. We Murderlated them.

And that Dodgers series - wow. My god that was intense and the Umps call, my god. Talk about ripping your heart out with incompetence. I still get mad thinking about it and thank god the good guys won.

2015 was magic and the mets showed up in the WS, but unfortunately, the other team showed up ready to play too and they were better when it counted.

It feels like 2015 was 100 years ago, but I don't think it's right to say that the mets didn't show up cause I think they did. Familia (and I love the guy), blew a couple games. Harvey pitched one batter too many. Tough breaks happened.

But getting back to Sandy . . . I don't mind the guy. No problem with him coming back. (Terry's not coming back is he?).

LTK I agree with you

It was a closer WS than the 4-1 series loss.

I was being cheeky because it was such a depressing series to watch and it feels now like this team is million miles away from that team and it's only been a couple of years

Maybe blame the manager for how atrociously he managed the bullpen, not to mention how he utterly botched a decision 99% of the fanbase KNEW and CALLED that he would (Cespedes/Conforto vs Lagares/Cespedes) in Game 1, which cost them a run during the first BATTER.

Or - maybe blame Wright for 2 errors which directly led to two losses.

OR BLAME THE *(^&*%^%%$^&%&*^& MANAGER FOR NOT CHALLENGING THIS LIKE THE GENIUS HE IS
