I thought I would bring these up from other fans, particularly in the NL East about the Santana signing. I saw this on a Mets forum and here are some good ones.
Give me a freakickin break!! All this worry over a guy who was a game over .500?? Yes,he is a GOOD pitcher--but he is a power guy and if his fastball drops just a little his change is not as devastating!! He may be an all star for 2 more years MAX!! Have fun eating 25 mil a year for a GOOD pitcher mut fans!!
nice pickup my the mutts, but one pitcher doesn't change the fact that their lineup is old, full of egos and Billy Wagner is closing games This is a shame because I wanted to root for Santana, because when he is on, he is like a butcher going through a carcass. But oh well, it will be better when we rough him up.
Is anyone else at least a tad nervous with all the hype the Mets are getting? I used to love being considered the underdog...because we'd never disappoint, we'd always perform above our expectations and be praised for that because year after year, despite having the best team on paper, we were still not the favorites. I have the utmost confidence that this team can win the next 5 world series with ease :) but now that many are considering us the favorites, I'm just a little nervous is all.
I'm not. Frankly I'm tired of all this talk of how close the Phillies and Braves are. It took a historic collapse for us to finish 1 game behind the Phils, and we get Pedro for a longer period, and add the best pitcher in baseball.
I agree with you guys 100% that we've got a tremendously talented team, perhaps the most talented team on paper in all of baseball, I just get a little nervous because of how the media contorts things etc. I have the utmost confidence in our squad though.
