But making a big trade doesn't mean you can't have a steady stream of players.

Also what you're forgetting is contending in 2015 likely means an increase in payroll in order to sustain that success.

But we don't need to have absurd depth in our farm to be able to trade some of it off.

Hedging your bets on Flores is not wise.

I don't get why so many people here want to trade Murphy.

Unless they get absolutely blown away it makes no sense to trade him.

The Dodgers offer to Puig was way more than anyone expected.

His offense for a middle infielder is well above average.

But how can you realistically expect Flores to provide equal or better value to Murphy?

Exactly

A mid rotation starter is a good pitcher.

I think deGrom is more of a mid rotation starter.

The Mets have to add offense from somewhere.

How did Gee's performance tonight have anything to do with regression?

Alright, explain to me why there's been so many players who have outperformed their FIP or xFIP throughout history?

Again all you're doing is looking at the peripherals and that's not what pitching is all about.

So Edgin giving up that grand slam was totally becuase Gee was due for regression.

I think it does.

It has nothing to do with it being the Yankees though.

It has nothing to do with disdain, I just disagree that the Yankees future looks promising is all.

Even objective people who follow the minors would say the Mets farm system is much better than the Marlins.

Pitchers control run prevention more than defense.

Because you can easily tell when a pitcher pitched great or whether the offense was bad/had a rough day.

I actually think sabermetrics are useful, the problem is you have no clue how to use them.

Tulo is significantly better than Hardy.

Tulo is a huge upgrade over any of the SS available in this years free agency and it's really not close at all.

At some point we have to try and improve our offense, mainly LF/RF and SS.
