BASEBALL: More Mets, Painful As It Is

Bob Klapisch proposed some remedies for the Mets, assuming this year and next are wasted. Some of those are no-brainers (fire Phillips; trade Mo, Alomar and Benitez), while the others are interesting. Trading Piazza makes sense, certainly on paper (his best years are certainly behind him), but I do understand recognizing what he has done for the franchise and hoping to have him go into the Hall of Fame as a Met. I do like the idea of reducing the ticket prices: the prices were set with certain expectations, which clearly will go unfulfilled. May as well recognize that and treat this as an apology to the fans.

Here is ESPN SportsNation's Top Ten most infamous Mets moments. Quite a disappointment -- nothing here goes back past 1989. Funny, I remember some pretty infamous moments during the '70's and early '80's (I wasn't in a position to watch in the '60s). Still, an entertaining read.
