To all Jose Reyes Haters: Stop Hating

For those who know me, i dont usually mouth off on a specific topic. But i probably will.

Why does everybody complain about Jose's dancing? OMG, he's not supposed to dance, OMG he's doing those handshakes, OMG he's having too much fun. When the team is losing its all jose's fault.

I dont give a crap if he dances does handshakes or not. He's 24 and id be hard pressed to look for a person who enjoys the game more than jose reyes. If somebody from the other team is mad, tell them to piss off i dont care.

This is one hundred percent truth. If i was reyes and somebody got ticked off just because im having fun, id do the handshakes in front of the opposing dugouts, then if they wanna come fight they get a beating in the (you know where).

When i see a guy like reyes having fun like that, it makes me proud to be a Mets fan. taking that away is taking the fun from the game. I suppose you like Barry Bonds or Roger Clemens better than him huh.

Point is i dont care.

Now im ready for the blasting ill get by mets haters(based on what ive read on the mlb forum, itll come from Positive Hype and CowboyB). Before you guys come, let me show you my new handshake.

What should the mets do after Johan?

Great work Omar you are a savior in New York once again by the look of things. There are however a couple things i would love for you to do.

While Johan certainly bumps this rotation up, there are still weaknesses in the team though not glaring that can be addressed with the current free agents left.

Starting Rotation-the number 5 spot

I am not ready to entrench Mike Pelfrey to that spot and El Duque should move to the bullpen. I believe with a full year of AAA, Pelfrey will greatly benefit with stops every once in a while to the big leagues.

Solution=Kyle Lohse or Livan Hernandez

Unless it takes anything more than a one yr deal to get them, i think one of them will be the perfect innings eater to go with Johan. My pick would be Livan Hernandez cause he gets some good offense, a great pitcher's park, and has thrown 200 inning for the past five years.

Bullpen

Sign every single low risk high reward guy you can find and at least one of them should pan out. If not we still have Joe Smith and perhaps one of the Eddie Kunz/Brant Rustich combo can pull a joe smith and come to the big leagues.

Solution=Low risk high reward players.

OF

Moises Alou is a guarantee to get hurt every year, Ryan Church cant hit the lefties. Plus besides Ramon Castro there isnt somebody with power on the bench.

Solution=Kevin Mench

He rakes lefties, can start for Alou (so as to not expose Endy Chavez cause he isn't an everday starter), and provides good pop.

 

Getting these guys will make me happy. At least even more happier.

Johan Santana to the mets? Pull the trigger Omar.

Well every offseason there's been something to keep our minds on. Although now i definitly think everybody just wants it to end.

Im talking about the tons of rumors that is the Johan Santana deal.

The sox were close to getting him, the Yankees were taking their offer off the table then putting it back (twice). And now i hear the Mets have the best offer.

As a mets fan im very happy to hear that. But everyone knows that to get the best pitcher in baseball you have to give up some talent which the mets will have to do if they want him to pitch in Shea.

Normally i object against trading 5 prospects for one player. But the fact is Johan Santana is the best pitcher in baseball, is still 28, and a move to the NL almost guarantees him at least 20 wins. So this is an exception.

I am not one to be the GM of any team but for now i say "Make it happen Omar"

 

OH AND GO METS.
