Nice little write up as Gee heads into the off season and prepares for 2013.

very good news that he is feeling good and able to pitch. they can really use him for next year. One of the overlooked reasons for the tail off in July/august was losing Gee.

Agreed, I know it is fashionable to focus on the pen and that is not to say they are without fault but the loss of Gee and Santana and the poor pitching from the starters in those 1st few weeks after the break including Dickey really hurt the club as well.

Excuses, excuses, excuses. Balderdash! All clubs have injuries. The Yankees were hit with injuries reminiscent of the 2009 Mets but are still in first place in their division. The last two Super Bowl winners were decimated with injuries early in their seasons. The Mets problem was a lack of talent and injuries to some of the few talented players on their roster.
Personally I think it was a minor miracle that Santana performed as well as he did for half a season. And people crying about the loss of Pelfrey is borderline absurdity.

He said “One of the overlooked reasons” not the only reason. A lack of talent would be another reason as well.

A lack of talent would be the primary reason. Even with Gee they’re not making the playoffs.

Sure OK. I am not trying to dispute that but just what seemed like a strong reaction to saying the loss of Gee played a part in the 2nd half struggles as well. I don’t believe it was suggested it was a primary reason but just a reason.
