    Hopefully this will change quickly...because whether Kemp sucks or not, or whoever the FO junior GMs are glad we don't have any more for whatever "reason", this present lineup doesn't win the NLW, imo. Nope.

    You can't really compare Yasmani and Kemps stats side by side because of the positions they play. Yasmani's injuries are worrisome (arent Kemps also?) but his production was great last year.

    If we didn't have Yasmani Grandal, we'd be betting on AJ Ellis as an every day catcher. Without Matt Kemp, we have plenty of good to great corner outfield options, not to mention it's much easier to trade or buy a corner outfielder then it is a catcher

    But we don't have him now, he's hurt...... again, and they don't go out and "Buy" anyone who's healthy any more.....

    What we DO have is a promising future and another year of re-runs of Tommy nodding off in that chair talking about the glory of '88.

    The Royals and the fucking Mets played in the WS last year... Let's not doom the season before it even starts.

    No. We might as well hibernate until 2017.

    Uh...we are betting on AJ Ellis as our everyday catcher...damn, it's not about Kemp anymore, it's about the guy(s) we got for him and their playability.

    Nah, let's play it, at least...like we have been for however long...never can tell...maybe we'll do something this time 'round. Something could happen, right?

    I'm not getting the point with this post, I guess...are they supposed to be shitty teams or something, so we have hope...is that it? Odd...since the Mets beat us, didn't they? Lol. Best pitching in the cosmos on the Mets.
    And the Royals were a great team...
    Are you saying this was a fluke?

    So then, what has Grandal brought us so far?
    Potential?

    More about how anything can happen. Who at the beginning or even halfway through the season had the Mets going to the WS?

    Well, I thought that their staff would at least get them real close...when your guys just don't give up runs,you don't have to be an offensive juggernaut.
    Kinda concerned about our O...Idk if we do the HR thing like last year again. Mac may have had something to do with that..maybe not. I don't think we will have a team ERA like last year's. So...
