Mets by the Numbers

The Mets Website That Counts

Unaccountable

Not to toot my own horn here but the latest JJ Putz flap only goes to support the idea expressed way back when that the Mets cared not about the results when they committed five guys and $10 million to get Putz, only the illusion that they'd boldly gone out and created some kind of impenetrable bullpen.

That said, I think there's more room for debating whether the team treated JJ Putz's injuries properly than whether an impenetrable bullpen really exists. In other words, the Mets screwed up no matter how Putz's health turned out.

A look at the Mets roster will tell you how unspectacular this offseason's been by contrast. A little more than two weeks before pitchers and catchers report, and 11 men on the 40-man roster have yet to be officially assigned numbers, and a couple of them (Eddie Kunz, Tobi Stoner) are no locks to return in what we saw them wear last (40 and 29, respectively).

Behold the unassigned:

Jack Egbert, P

Kelvim Escobar. P (probably 45)

Clint Everts, P

Ryota Igarashi, P (probably 18)

Arturo Lopez, P

Jay Marshall, P

Henry Blanco, C

Chris Coste, C

Shawn Bowman, INF

Chris Carter, INF-OF

Gary Matthews, OF

Also invited to camp on minor-league deals:

R.A. Dickey, P

Elmer Dessens, P (wore 64 last year)

Bobby Livingston, P

Russ Adams, INF

Jolbert Cabrera, INF-OF

Mike Cervenak, INF

Andy Green, INF (wore 10 29 last year)

Mike Hessman, OF

Jesus Feliciano,OF

Frank (Smithtown's Own) Catalonotto, INF-OF

To silence the relentless

To silence the relentless complaints from fans and columnists, I think the only thing the Mets cared about in the Putz trade was getting rid of old number 48. How dealt with Putz's injury is another, sadder story.

Andy Green

I think Green wore 10 in Spring Training, but then it was assigned to Sheffield. I think Green ended up wearing #29 for a couple of weeks in August before Stoner came up.

Green???

Why does Andy Green even matter? That his uni number is even discussed on here is not a good sign for the upcoming season, LOL!

What they deserved

Marc I totally agree. Seems like the wheels got in motion for this immediately after the season when Jeff Wilpon met with Omar and instead of firing him (like he probably should have) decided instead to engage in "addition by subtraction" as a means of repentance for the '08 collapse. He actually said that.

 

Right then, you knew that they'd go out and throw the most money at the guy with the most saves (a mistake they'd already made with Wagner) and basically give away everyone else. It was dumb, and you know what? I'm afraid Rodriguez has yet to show us his worst.

 

Matt, you are obviously correct with Green. He's one of those guys I'm already forgetting were on the club last year.

chemistry

Sort of reminds me of the Jets of the past few years. Since the front office works collaboratively, they need to have the right balance of personalitites. Omar and the Wilpons don't work well together which is obviously why no coherent strategy is set or followed, which is why mistakes like trading for the wrong person or not checking for injuries happen.

The Wilpons are the bosses. Omar thinks he's more astute on baseball matters than he is. They need their own Gene Michael or Terry Bradway - a guy with outstanding consulting skills who can guide both parties without taking too much credit or blame. Until then, the Mets will continue their Knicks-like way.

im feeling that carter gets

im feeling that carter gets 21. bowman gets 23 and clint gets 22. gm jr. could get 24. blanco will get 36. coste will get 47. and catalonotto will get 10.

those are some of my predictions

Don't see the Mets reissuing

Don't see the Mets reissuing #24 to anyone not named Rickey Henderson... would not be surprised to see Matthews Jr. in #23.

Bowman?

Why would guys like Bowman and Everts get numbers lower than 60? Do they even have a chance to make the big club?

bowman and everts

i think everts has a real good chance of making the team. and bowman can make it if he can play something other than first (maybe 2nd or OF). hed also have to beat out carter, catalonotto and the other guys who are invited

destiny

Bowman is destined for No. 71, I can feel it. It'd be surprised to see Everts in 22. 65 for him?

71 and 65...

Now THOSE are the kind of numbers I'm talking about for the likes of Bowman and Everts, LOL!

high numbers

that guy who said theyd get low numbers must not know about them.
i like when they put the no names in the random high numbers.

I, for one, would like to

I, for one, would like to see who gets #99 this year.

Numbers of the missing!

Per the Mets website... Egbert 35, Escobar 45, Everts 61, Igarashi 18, Lopez 32, Marshall 47.

Blanco 4, Coste 3.

Bowman 63.

Carter 23, Matthews 19.

Thanks Dave

Many small companies prefer

Many small companies prefer to hire SEO specialists as consultants rather
than full time employees, unless they have a certain amount of websites that need to be continuously maintained
and optimized. Any business to conduct business on the web
should have a web site created especially for creating an awareness of their products and ser-vices to the planet at large.

Gone are the days of one way

Gone are the days of one way marketing or merely just posting comments about your site
or other related topics. Improving Site Structure - This second part tells you
how to properly structure URLs. But it is extremely
important that anyone looking to hire an SEO professional be aware of the differences.
There are two techniques that combine to form a
complete SEO.

'Are people really searching

'Are people really searching online for my product or services'.
Thirdly, the search engines need legit companies to do
site optimization. Depending on how how much time you have
you can do this about once per week. There are two
techniques that combine to form a complete
SEO.

The Internet has changed the way we attain information forever
and Google has been the main driving force and proponent
behind this instant access to information. Unlike TV, radio and other traditional marketing channels that need big budgets to be effective, SEO can be
cost effective. Webmaster follows a long process to promote a website in top search engines (Google, Yahoo and
Bing).

Another major difference

Another major difference between the two is that while
PPC is a paid form of advertising, organic search engine optimization is absolutely free.
The trends in this industry change and new developments
take place only when Google comes up with some novel feature
that ends up breaking every site's SEO and
compels them to consider a change in their current
content presentation in order to do well. I am hoping to show you
that I can help you achieve top rankings in the sites like I have for all my other
clients. Webmaster follows a long process to promote a website
