Same stuff Sandy tried in his first couple years.


Vehemently disagree. Like Sandy or don't like Sandy, but lets not mischaracterize his approach retroactively. It was never his intention to aggressively attack offseasons, and he told you as much.

Unless you're taking the great Pagan-for-Torres swap as a sign of him being aggressive.


Who cares how quick it is if its junk. Thats my point. The idea that BVW is somehow going to get good free agents to sign early to the peanuts the Mets can pay them is wishful thinking. Now, I think they have one more "big" player to sign but everything is going to be around the fringes.

Ha was thinking the same thing. The most "exciting" add (retrospectively speaking) I think was Capuano or Carrasco in that 1st year list. In the 2nd year it was Frank Francisco. Let those names resonate.

Actually there's one move missing from that list that generated ridiculous hype - BRAD EMAUS, Rule 5 pick! What a legend Sandy was on here for such a move!

A little of this is hindsight, of course, but Gelbs is certainly around these guys a bunch and at least has SOME insights that the public is not privvy to.

Highlights the differences in approach and style between Sandy/BVW. Says it was Sandy's philosophy to be a bit contrarian, not view the Winter Meetings as the end of anything, etc.
