Let me be the first to say that I have loved the Mets since birth, and have suffered as you all have with this love. Though I believe that losing this season (as in letting Minaya ride it out and not make any significant transactions) is for the best.
Regardless of the health of our key players (or fringe players for that matter), the predictions that all of us with any statistical background have made will probably come true. The Mets will finish under 500, due to utter incompetence on the part of Omar Minaya (perhaps the most frustrating part is watching Ollie today while Carlos Zambrano isn't even good enough for the Cubs rotation...).
With that in mind, this is my "goal" for 2010.
1) Mets go 70-92. or some other ridiculous record
2) The Wilpon's seeing the light and amidst cries from the fanbase, fire Omar Minaya (I'm assuming Jerry is gone by August).
3) Omar is replaced a GM with a head (not just a gut), Thad Levine, Damon Oppenheimer, Dan Jennings are all fine (though I have a weird feeling the Mets will look within)
4) With a good GM, there is no 4.
