Still think they are going to add another closer to their bullpen like a Fuentes or a Wood.

They would have won the division easily if Wagner had not gotten hurt. They had no closer to speak of. Ayala, Heilman, Showenweis.......none of them could close a game if their lives depended on it.

You obviously never saw Wagner pitch in late September or early October contests. If his heart were the size of his mouth he'd be a HOFer. Could have swore he pitched in 07 when they got swept by the Phils just like in 08 ?

K-Rod is one of the best and a huge improvement over Wagner BUT they have to get from the 7th and 8th inning to K-Rod in the 9th first.

I love how everyone says they NEED a closer, how about you win it before the 9th inning.

I think it would have been a different season if wags didn't get hurt but we won't ever know. I really doubt they are done from dealing though. I'm a realistic mets fan I know they need at least one more starter, an outfielder and a few more pieces in the pen before I pronounce them Contenders.

If they don't trade Heilman they need to see if maybe he should start after all. I saw him toss a 1 hitter so he has potential. I'm just not sure if he can handle NY. Maybe Fuentes will decide to be a set up man as opposed to a closer and sign with the Mets also...

K rod dominated the AL...imagine what he will do to the NL. The Mets improved but not enough to make the playoffs yet. Lets see what else they do. We still got a long time to go.
