Jason Bay was a good move Omar. Mets nation would have stormed your office at New Shea if you did not get a big time bat in the lineup. I am not sure if you then went on vacation but I guess you were out of the country when Carlos Beltran got his surgery, but hey it happens. I am thankful you were back in the office to pick up Gary Matthews Jr. but where is the damn pitching???
Jason Marquis- good choice, a reliable guy who does not get hurt?
signs with Nationals
Joel Pienero- a risk but could be worth it.
signs with Angels
Ben Sheets - big risk big reward
signs with A's
Are you serious with this? You are going to go with the exact same starters from last year? The same rotation that 7 starters ended up being hurt? You claimed that the Mets would be built on "pitching and defense" and yet all I see is 1 big hitter and 1 good defensive outfielder. The starting pitching looks horrible from my angle, Omar.
Johan Santana- thank God for him, because after him the talent drops to the C+ range
Mike Pelfrey- Cant be a bigger headcase
Oliver Perez- Dude can't throw a strike
John Maine- good, yet eggshell tough
Who else is there?
Paging Mark Mulder.......anyone? Anyone want to pitch for the Mets?
