***Separate issue*** Many are applauding loudly for the Mets' 11th hour successes inking Fernando Salas and Jerry Blevins to return to the club. Don't get me wrong. Those pitchers are fine additions and shore up a projected-to-be leaky bullpen. It's what should have been done. Whether those pitchers are the right ones is a subject of some debate, but you're certainly not going to be hurt by offering those contracts.
The problem is that the club is once again exercising its philosophy of maintaining the status quo. Both of these pitchers (like Yoenis Cespedes and Neil Walker) were here last year. The list of players who have departed (other than Bartolo Colon) likely won't be missed. The issue is that the club is treading water instead of attempting to move forward. Had you won the World Series then not changing a thing could perhaps be justified. We all know they eked into the playoffs and were out after a single game. You'd think that suggests there is room for improvement.
Celebrate the return of two fine pitchers but don't let up on demanding more.
