Hi there! Welcome to my AAOP. Coming off of a number of disappointing seasons now, the Mets still find themselves in limbo thanks to a myriad of cash issues and a lack of impact offensive pieces. While the Mets have some interesting starting pitching starting to surface at the big league level, the offensive situation is currently poor enough that it'll likely hold the team back in 2013, not to mention the bullpen, which is still a huge question mark. In this AAOP, I will use all of the baseball savoy that I can muster to try to get the Mets back to respectability. While I'd love to make huge splashes, I ultimately decided to go more conservative and go for some smaller fixes. Let's begin!
Clone R.A. Dickey 25 times.
Kidnap all of the traded Dickey clones and destroy them/send them to a far away land so other teams do not have Dickeys (we can also throw Justin Turner in with them).*
PROFIT! WINZ! RINGZ! CHAMPTIONSHIPS! GRISSION UP THE WAZOO!
I've done all of the math, and THIS PLAN IS FOOLPROOF, not to mention full of baseball savoy! We'll pay all of the clones the MLB minimum.
Bullpen: Dickey Clones 3-8, Bobby Parnell
Starting Lineup: C Dickey Clone 9, 1B Ike David, 2B Daniel Murphy (Dickey Clone 10 for defense), 3B Unclutch loser David WRONGZ (but really Ike David), SS Ruben Tejada, LF Dickey Clone 11, CF Dickey Clone 12, RF Giancarlo Stanton
Bench: THERE IS NO BENCH. R.A. DICKEY DOESN'T NEED REST AND A FULL 25 MAN ROSTER OF DICKEY CLONES WOULD BE UNFAIR TO BASEBALL.
The end. If you like this post, please don't forget to (rec)ommend me!
*No Justin Turners or R.A. Dickey clones were actually injured in the making of this AAOP.
