I would never had knowed that you were a Mets fan Lance. This read is right on target and your hard work is noted. Carry on.


A good essay, mine host. I wish I'd seen it before the end.

I'd say more -- I'd rather be making jokes -- but honestly I feel kind of heartbroken right now.


As a Yankee fan (though one who wishes the Mets all the success not at the Yankees' direct expense) I'd trade your team's next several years for mine. It was clear to me that after the NLDS the young stud pitchers were winning without their best stuff, which is good long-term, but were gassed as they pushed well beyond their previous innings limits. Conforto looks like a keeper. Someone else will probably overpay Murphy, giving you a chance to upgrade your middle infield defense. Wheeler will be back, and I'd take what I've seen of him as a fifth starter any day. If you don't let Cespedes go off to the rest of us, you'll be fine.
