  1. Sure. But Howard Megdal made a great point when he mentioned that by merely joining the rest of the big-market teams in thinking logically and greater utilization of stats, the Mets will be better in the long-run.

      Oh, absolutely. I don’t think I agree with James about this.

      Plus, being in a big market, the Mets have more room to take risks than a small market team. The Yankees make mistakes all the time that would crush other teams — A.J. Burnett, Kei Igawa, and Alex Rodriguez’ contract is going to look awful soon if it doesn’t already — but they can outspend their mistakes. You can take different risks in the big market. I think these guys are smart enough to figure it out.

  2. I think that James misses the major point. That is, the Mets finally have a front office that thinks strategically.
