I don’t know why some have a problem with SA’s dry wit. I like it.
He knows as well as any of us the state of the OF. He’s not trying to cover anything up, or feed us some platitudes about it being better than it is right now. He’s acknowledging it’s a short coming. What’s wrong with that? Only ones I can see having a problem with that are the platoon players slated to start in the OF right now. And if they’re realistic, they probably know it’s one big question mark at the moment. Gives guys like Duda and Kirk something to aspire to – prove us all wrong.
And kudos to him for acknowledging RAs contribution to the Mets organization and wishing him the best in Toronto.

I like it because it just rubs the hell out of certain detractors. As for why he hasn’t fixed it? I don’t know perhaps the best made plans go wrong.

Some just gotta hate:
- It’s a bad idea to hoard picks.
- No good FA is ever going to want to sign here.
- It’s not in their MO to trade prospects for talent that comes with a contract.
- It’s a joke to say they’d like to develop strong pitching and defense.
- None of the prospects are worth anything until they actually come up and blow us all away.
Honestly….what’s left? We’ve already tried overpaying for talent with the last FO and that didn’t get us anywhere.
I can’t wait until the season starts.

SRT I am assuming we are just going to have to either take everything from a frustrated fans viewpoint or just hush up for a while. It’s becoming almost impossible to voice anything but negativity regardless of what blog without koolaid, slurper, naive, blah, blah, blah. And to think that some view this as being unbiased coverage.

It’s probably why I spend a lot of time on AA, as well as here.
Over at AA they all realize the position the Mets are in. The discuss ways to make improvements going forward, rather than focusing on mistakes that are said and done. I’m not sure I can read one more discussion on what SA did or did not do 20 years ago.
Truthfully, everyone is entitled to their opinion. Even those who hate what the FO is trying to do. I’m not thrilled either with the position the Mets are in. But as you all know, my opinion is quit shooting the messenger. We all know why SA was brought in. He won’t be here long enough to see this team back on top.

I have that on my daily evening read list. Have not yet registered to comment, but yes, overall a fair and balanced group (and not all Sandy lovers, contrary to what the core seems to think) that actually have an understanding and appreciation of BB, and the reality of how things work these days. And a lot of Met knowledge.

I’ve learned a lot over at AA on advanced statistics these past few years. But being mathematically challenged I’m never going to be even half an expert. I’m happy if I can look at a stat and know what the average should be….
Many of the regulars over there have that dry sense of humor as well – probably another reason I like the comment section. If you can’t have fun with baseball, what’s the point? Too much else in real life to get stressed out about…..

I am with you guys. I love his snarky, sarcastic sense of humor. I have one myself! and in reality, he is poking some fun at himself, and recognizing the situation. Plus, pretty sure getting a dig in at the “haters” to get them going.
and yes, I love to see the way it riles up a certain part of the fan base that takes everything way too literally, and are in general dumbasses. Seeing them looking for hidden meanings and freaking out in general helps ease the pain!

I have no issue with self-deprecation, although it’s usually best when making a successful person appear more humble. Otherwise it’s cynicism, which I also have no issue with. What bothers me about Sandy’s approach is that it’s a smug self-attempt at excusing the ineptitude. Sure, it’s only baseball, but we see this MO on a regular basis in Corporate America, politics, and everything else. In reality, it’s nothing more than the Big Lie.
