We're a team of long pissing ass kickers.
Mets Reinstate David Wright From Disabled List
Congrats to David Wright on a great career. Will be cool (as a fan of the game but screw the Mets) to see him one last time.
I think we have a shot against everyone but the Dodgers.
The Dodgers are built for playoff baseball, but if we get good starting pitching we'll have a shot if we play them.
Wrights pinch hit performance and will start tomorrow for one last time.
Classy guy. Hate to see how injuries derailed him so much, even though he was a Met. Dude was a certified Braves killer.
Jeff Francoeur to become the Braves main TV analyst
Crazy to think he's 34.
Wow, that is crazy. I enjoyed his time with the Mets. From everything I've heard teammates absolutely loved the guy.
Remember hearing when the Braves were in town he picked a bunch of them up from the airport.

also, Fangraphs currently projects the Nats to go 91-71 after the Corbin signing
What do they project the Braves record to be? I read the whole Zips thing and didn't see a record.
those are just their depth chart projections, they're not based on ZiPS. I think those are based on Steamer projections, which are available.
Eyeballing it, it looks like ZiPS projects around 89-90 wins. A replacement level team would win 48 games and the Braves project for about 42 WAR.

once again this division will be determined by how well the fightin Phills do. did the Mets overacheive last year?
Have a feeling they will come around if they offer enough.
you ever get the groundhog day feeling as a Pirates fan?
Always. It is pointless to even have hope.
Especially this is when Frank Coonelly states this:
Total copout to avoid improving with actually spending money.
GO METS GO!
The Phillies barely hung on to third place in the division last year. Pythag says they overachieved by doing that. And the Mets finished in 4th. Hard to overachieve when you finish 4th in the division. Ask Jacob deGrom if the Mets overachieved.
With all the Mets moves I think they have lifted their floor rather than their ceiling. I'd say their ceiling is higher than last year but still needs to be higher.
Another reliever is a must, would love more starting pitcher depth (Derek Holland?) and I still think the lineup needs a real bat.
At some point I think they need to flip a starter (Wheeler, Matz, Lugo?) for a positional player. Rosario needs to become a reliable everyday guy and they have to hope Alonso is half as good as promised.
