Sherman firing on all cylinders today:

Minaya said "great organizations take care of their alumni," a day after NY Times story that Ed Kranepool (all-time leader in NYM games played) is estranged from the organization. #Mets #getonthesamepage

Omar: Wait what out, exactly?
Sandy: The offseason.
Omar: Haha, no really, what's the plan?
Sandy: ...
Omar. ...Oh. You're serious.
Sandy: Yeah. *plays ball-in-cup for two minutes* You hungry?
Omar: *stares blankly* Sure, lunch is probably a good idea.
Sandy: ...
Omar: Okay...so, should we go?
Sandy: No, we can't go yet.
Omar: Why not?
Sandy: We're going to wait it out.


If the worst case scenario is back to Omar-era stuff, we're no worse off on the field than we are now and I'm a hell of a lot more entertained than I am right now.

I want Mickey Callaway fired at 3 AM if we suck in June. Or throw all our prospects at Johan Santana because SP was our number 1 concern and who cares if the window is closing and we have no farm lets go for ittttttttt.

Not quiet whispers about how much you dislike Terry Collins slowly leaking out. Or discussions of roster flexibility and waiting for value. Borrrrrrrrrrring.

Is it possible that Omar was re-hired as a direct result of that reporting? Timing is a little on-the-nose. Also, can't wait when the season is over and there are rumors that Omar is going to get the keys again. We don't even get to experience new and exciting ways of going down in flames...

It’s a good thing Piazza is away from this team, the Wilpons would find some way to burn bridges

I have some issues with Sandy, but the idea that Omar was supposedly a better drafter seems to have no basis in reality to me.

I'm not sure I'd qualify our drafting as strong under either, but seems like Sandy gets a lot more of a pass for poor drafts because of supposed "process" (which can cover for anything) than Omar ever did (and some of Omar's supposed poor processes yielded our best draft results: Duda, deGrom, Murphy as "no ceiling" org filler, physically mature college talent in middle rounds instead of going for upside).

Whoa, Jim Duquette with Shots Fired.

Jim Duquette @Jim_Duquette
Gimme a break, knowing the Mets upper management (SA, JR, JPR) it’s not likely they’re upset about Minaya hiring, esp since he’s had a good track record of major league talent i.e. Harvey deGrom Matz Murphy Familia Tejada Lagares Niese Duda - and He’s not interested in being a GM anymore. He’s willing to assist in any aspect and brings years of experience with a positive / upbeat outlook. Anyone other than the top 3 that is upset ought to look in the mirror. That’s some weak assed garbage.

Duquette is a joke. Talk to me when he isn’t kissing ownerships ass or offering cover for them.

I’m surprised nobody brought that up till now. Maybe the reason Sandy’s extension isn’t public is because it’s so short term in case the Wilpons pull the rip cord and voila another potential replacement is here.

That would be a bridge too far for me. I really hope that's not in the works. I thought Fisher was coming back tho.

I tend to buy what he's selling more than I do from Carig.
