I thought this one from John Harper was pretty accurate

http://www.nydailynews.com/sports/baseball/mets/ny-sports-callaway-mets-harper-20180613-story.html

Listening to SNY Sportsnite, Marc Malusis compared him to Rich Kotite. Not very flattering indeed. :lol:

I truly wish someone would just come in and drop the $2-3 billion to get the Mets from the Wilpons

The Mets are surely not as successful as their owners want them to be, but they are in every other way a reflection of what the Wilpons want them to be.

What's crazy to me is that Fred was part owner of the Mets in the early 80's.


During that time Nelson Doubleday was the majority owner and he not only hired a true baseball man in Frank Cashen but also gave him the keys to build the right way and didn't mettle.

He also was not afraid to write a big check and he showed remarkable patience.


Was Fred paying attention?

Yeah, and if you're using the "He's 19" logic, then I guess the best report a scout could give us is:


"I have no idea. He's a teenager. He may go through 5 arm surgeries between now and his 30th birthday. He may add a pitch. He may lose a pitch. He may put on 30 lbs and add velocity. He may put on 50 lbs and eat his way out of the league. I literally have no idea what he is going to be."

But thats not what these guys are paid to do, nor what we are looking for them to do, right?
