It is sad that the loyal devoted Met fans feel they need to address the hitting problems of their team, which the owner seems to ignore. It is sadder that they believe a "mere" $3 million will procure a batter of sufficient impact to significantly address this issue. It is saddest of all that, as of the last time I checked, the project has raised pledges of only 750 bucks.

Mets acquire 36 yr old 3B Juan Uribe and OF Kelly Johnson from the Braves. That sounds promising Stuff like that makes it hard to root for the Mets.

Up to $1050 a few hours ago. With that kind of money, we should be able to sign a few Little Leaguers.

And agreed Thomas, what do they think $3 million is gonna buy????

Re the trade, I am always torn when it comes to swapping young arms for old bats. True, you might be selling the future away for the chance that the pieces you get today have enough gas left to get you over the hill. Yet though those 20+ pitchers, who may or may not develop into 20+ winners, could also throw their very last baseball with their very next pitch. Arms are fragile. Bats can be swung by old men with lame shanks.

While not a sexy trade, I think it's a good one.
Granted, while neither player is going to put the team on it's back and carry them into the playoffs, both players are true Major Leaguers, and are upgrades over what the Mets currently have.
Mets still need a bat, and if that bat winds up in the infield, their bench just got a whole lot deeper. Plus, the upgrade didn't cost you anything talent wise.
A good day for the Mets, IMO.......Well, except for the 7-2 loss last night.

Familia blew a masterful start by deGrom, but Uribe wins it in the 10th with a walk off.

So far Uribe and Johnson have paid off for their new team.

The media needs to leave Wilmer alone. He's been with the organization since he was 16. I'll bet he hasn't really seen his biological family much since then and considers the Mets is family. I was almost in tears myself when all of this was going on during the game.

I'm taking full credit for bringing Cespedes to the Mets. He wanted to join me in Queens for the rest of the season.
