Alderson and Collins are running out of time…it’s nice to see the kid pitchers up and see what they can do. Unfortunately Jason Bay is still here, why oh why ? He has a contract left I get it but he is taking up a roster space for maybe a younger more productive player to shine. I mean me waking up and stretching is more productive then what he is doing! They always say there is nothing like going home .
I would of called up the pirates general manager…told him I want to give you bay maybe it will revitalize him I’ll eat 75 percent of this ungodly contract and give me a 3rd tier prospect for him or the mysterious player to be named later…Mr Valdespin deserves to play more than he has Mets fan…he can run…hit and just adds energy to the team. When Santana comes back you have him dickey..Harvey, Niese and wheeler getting you through.
Bring up a couple of fresh new arms for the bullpen, you need to stay competitive in August and stay close so when the call ups in September comes rolling around.. Then you have your options. Don’t let a good first half of the season be ruined by another second half swoon.you have the talent to do it . Don’t let contracts and futile players stand in your way. Those 2 wild card positions are there for the taking., and if Collins can make it there without hardly any moves he should be considered manager of the year with what he has to work with.
So Mets fans if Collins isn’t giving up, if the New York Mets play hard and show they care..then let’s see the support for this team by not only when they are winning but playing good solid baseball. Remember the motto….You Gotta Believe…make the new York Mets believe too
