Pomes/MMO: Mets are a moneyball team

14

So much greatness in this article, I dont know which is the money quote. Thanks Greg Pomes, you really cheered me up when I needed it today. "Instead of having Jose Reyes at short for the next six years we will have 21-year old Ruben Tejada. A player who cannot field, throw, hit and run nearly as good as Jose Reyes . He also brings zero energy to the team and the fanbase the way Jose Reyes can do. Tejada is cheap and that is all that matters when it comes to Moneyball. That is all that matters to Sandy Alderson and his guys in the front office.... You know how Moneyball teams like the Oakland A’s only draw crowds when teams like the Yankees or former star players come to town? Well that is what will happen with Citi Field. There will be crowds to see the Yankees and the return of Jose Reyes and as has been the case for a couple of seasons now, Phillies fans will outnumber Mets fans when those two get together.. Other than that we won’t be seeing crowds at Citi FIeld. It will be a as quiet as tomb, Alderson’s Tomb."

I don't begrudge that Ron Santo was selected. I personally don't like him too much, but the numbers are there, and it's hard to argue against his inclusion in the Hall of Fame when the numbers are there. Once again, Gil Hodges was snubbed.

Sandy to meet with the media tonight at 9

I'm sure he'll try and explain how a small market team out bid the Mets for a elite player without saying that the Wilpons are broke. I'd bet SNY will broadcast it.

Marlins up their offer to Reyes

The contract also includes an option year for a seventh year worth 22 mil a year or they could buy him out for five mil. I don't see Sandy being able to match this offer.

Mets have contacted Francisco Rodriguez

Well Everybody, It has come down to this: We may just have another season of K-Rod after all Added by Eric: Not a bad idea, frankly. Rodriguez may come cheap — or, at the very least, on a one-year deal — and he's still quite good. He has to be a better option than Luis Ayala at any rate, and whatever he signs for will be significantly less than his vesting option would've paid him.

I may never watch another game

If this happens

3rd-round pick if Marlins sign Reyes?

It makes no sense to me why the Marlins should still have a 2nd-round pick in this scenario.
