  • Yeah it's been pretty amazing to see how quick Omar turned this franchise around. There were a lot of pieces already in place but Omar got us to the top and I don't see why it won't be that way for at least the next 5 years.

      Its pretty easy to see how quick Omar turned it around. You play in NY, you have money, and he is not completely ********. He's not going and trading Scott Kazmir for Victor Zambrano.

      • I might buy a Reyes jersey. I have a Pedro jersey, he was always my favorite player in baseball, but now that he's pretty much toast, I think I have to get a Reyes jersey.

        But I still <3 Pedro. He doesn't take crap from nobody. You'd swear he's from Jersey.

          While that is all true it's the smaller moves that he's made that have been the best. Signing Endy Chavez, Valentin, Bradford. Trading for John Maine etc.. He's made the correct large moves but it's the smaller ones that has put this team over the top.

            Definately. The man knows how to build a team.

            Thats the biggest issue I have with the Yanks, they don't value their farm system enough. You need to stay young in today's league.

            I heard on the Michael Kay show about a month or so ago, one beat writer, I forgot who, made a great point about age in baseball.

            In today's game of parity, most of the better teams are young. And to be a great young team, you need to have faith in your farm system.

            NOTE: Im not trying to start a war here. Im just saying. Let's keep it clean.

              I actually think the Yanks have the more home grown players on their team than the Mets. You need a core of home grown guys, but that core could be as little as 3 players in my mind. When the Yanks were winning in was more who they brought in that actually put them over the top. Guys like Cecil Fielder, Jimmy Key, David Justice, and others.

                It seems like theyre making a stronger commitment to farm players recently. I think it will pay off.

                I would love to see another Subway Series, and its definately possible.

                    I'm jut saying that Reyes and Wright have been the core, but it wasn't until they brought in guys from outside that the Mets actually started winning. Out of their Starting 8 position players and starting rotation, only 3 are homegrown I believe.

                      Oh definately. Thats definately true. I think Milledge might be the 4th by midseason.

                      Isn't there a pitcher that they have in the minors that theyre high on? I think I heard they have a pitcher that has a rocket arm thats developing right now, but I could be wrong. Im not great with baseball knowledge, I don't keep up with it too much.

                        They have a couple. If it is a guy with a rocket arm you are probably thinking of Guerra. I think thats how you spell it. He is still a ways off.

                          Some services rank the Yanks farm system number 1 overall when it comes to pitching.

                          • Most do rank the pitching #1, it was a debatable 2-5 comng into the offseason, but adding 5 good arms into through the trades rocketed us up to #1.

                            Position on the other hand... just Tabata and a couple of fringe prospects.

                            Just imagine combining the yanks/mets major league team and minor league system?

                            • Both the Yankees and the Mets have done an EXCELLENT job of rebuilding their Farm Systems.

                              Both of these systems were among the worst a couple of years ago, it's very possible that both might be top 10, or even top 5 at the end of this season.

                              • The Mets do only have 5 homegrown players on the team. Reyes, Wright, Heilman, Smith, and Pelfrey. It will be a more significant amount in the years to come but the young guys the Mets acquired have a chance to be just as good and they are just as cheap.
