Meet the Mets

They've got outstanding baserunning, top-flight prospects hitting walk-off grand slams in the minors, and a starting rotation that has exceeded all expectations. Amidst all this, Howard Megdal announced his campaign to run for Met GM, promising logic, transparency, and passion. Ted Berg notes the inconvenient timing for Megdal. But, then again, Howard can just point to what the Met roster was supposed to look like on day 1.
