Well, the team isn't off to the best post-All Star start.
Let me ask all of you a question.
If the Mets lose today, and then tank against Washington in their upcoming three game series, should the Mets just realize that that don't have the tools this year to make it to the playoffs and just shut down the walking wounded and become sellers?
I'm just saying... the plan for this team was for some things to transpire in 2015. Zack Wheeler and Steven Matz are supposed to be pitching in the rotation... David Wright is supposed to be playing third base. Travis d'Arnaud is supposed to be behind the plate... and Juan Lagares is supposed to be a healthy center fielder.
This shit didn't work out but it doesn't mean it can't at some point next year. There is enough here to be a winner... hell, you may have the best rotation in baseball for the next three consecutive years starting in 2016.
Come on... put a more realistic plan together before you sell off a key chip for some two month loan drone.
First, call up d'Arnaud and tell him to pace himself for a full recovery with a target date of August.
Next, call up Wright and tell he you're going the route of the insurance relief and he's down for the count for the remainder of the year.
Next, take the glove away from Lagares and send him to the Mets doctors immediately to clean out what's floating around in his arm/shoulder.
Next, call Matz and make sure he isn't pushing it either and shut him down if it is necessary to better help the team next year.
Then, get on the phone with Wheeler people and keep monitoring him through his progress back.
From here, it's clean out time.
All bets are off for guys like Daniel Murphy, Bartolo Colon John Mayberry Jr., Jerry Blevens, and even possibly Bobby Parnell.
Lastly Jon Niese and the last year of the Michael Cuddyer contract would be in play with an offer for the Mets to eat a huge chuck of Cuddy's deal in return for on your infield or outfield prospect.
I have no idea at this point who I'd be playing but they couldn't be doing it less exciting that these guys are doing this week.
Just some discussion thoughts to ponder...
