This will free Sandy up to really be able to spend time he needs crafting that special joke about how the Mets are terrible.

Unreal. Failure on top of failure. Over and over and over...

This team isn't getting one more cent from me.

NFL is dead to me, MLB is dead to me...what the blazes! is happening

Yup.

We also drafted a hell of a lot better under Omar.

Seriously, he has his warts, but the run from 2005-2010 looks a hell of a lot better overall than 2011-now. Keep him away from those impulsive big $ contracts for fading vets, and lets do this.

This is good news. Omar and Sandy both seemingly recognize the need for entertainment (at least they say they do). When Omar took over, he made splashes that made Queens a destination (and hurt him on the back end). When Sandy came, he enacted a 5 year rebuild that was going to be set us up for "sustainable success" but only actually got good when he made the impulsive splashes (that hurt on the back end).

Right now is a really significant point for the Mets. They had their window in NYC and absolutely blew it. The Yankees are setting up for a huge run. The Phillies and Braves are going to surpass the Mets in the short term and until the Nats lose all their superstars, playoff demons be damned, they're still ahead until they're not.

Mets need to turn this thing around now, lest they fall into oblivion which they literally may not come out of, given the widening gap in MLB.

The hiring of Minaya is all about the scouting department which is absolutely his strength.

The Mets have obviously been disappointed with the developing of young talent since the exit of Paul Depodesta.

Yeah, he'll help in scouting but this probably also cements "starting second baseman Jose Reyes." :P

at least there will be someone in the organization to say "Let's do SOMETHING?"
