- Why replace Callaway with another unknown. His faults are areas that can be improved upon.

The big story isn't Alonso - we all knew he would come around - it's the emergence of Amed Rosario.

Since July 1st he's a top-10 offensive SS in baseball. Top three in runs created. 

Rosario's defense has improved and if his performance is sustainable you have five core offensive players for next season.

The bullpen situation requires Callaway to just go with who he has and hopes for the best. It makes 7-innings from the starters imperative.

The media trolling of the Mets is tiresome just ask Jarred Kelenic’s mom.

Jed Weisberger of MLB.com talks about why the Mets and Yanks don’t make trades

Is Clint Fraizer for Zack Wheeler realistic?

Was Domingo German for Jay Bruce a real thing in 2017?

Just when you thought the Mets were pulling everyone back "in" with winning 6 of 7, they throw up a stinker against the Phillies. Mike Silva questions whether he should change his stance and consider the Mets a “real” Wild Card contender. Is this just a fake pennant race?

Sandy Alderson was brought on in 2010 to rebuild the farm system and create a sustainable winning environment. Many credited Omar Minaya for building the core of the 2015 World Series team.

The Mets 2016 season has turned into a mini-disaster. Is this the most disappointing season in team history? Mike thinks so.

Why is the media defending Terry Collins? You all know Mike's position on Collins and why he wants him fired. What will change in 2017 with Collins at the helm?

Finally, Yoenis Cespedes is being asked to “carry” the Mets the rest of the way. Even if he does will he return next season? A long-term commitment to Cespedes has ramifications for the future. Assuming Jay Bruce is back for another year where does that leave Michael Conforto? Another year at Triple-A? Trade bait?

3921
Tonight John Delcos of the New York Mets Report to talks to Mike Silva about the latest in Mets baseball.

John tells Mike why the Mets need to move away from Yoenis Cespedes this offseason, if he opts out and how his golfing incident is a bigger problem than Terry Collins let on. He also believes the Mets will not break away from this Wild Card “muck” of teams and miss the playoffs in 2016.

They grade Alderson and Collins throughout the segment. Delcos puts much of the blame on Alderson while Silva tends to believe both Terry Collins and Dan Warthen have done a poor job in the dugout this year.

They wrap-up the program with a fun “what-if” when it comes to Alex Rodriguez and how Mets history would have changed if he signed on with the club after the 2000 season.
