They were supposed to become low-budget wonders of the baseball world.
Next year with some better luck and a few wins worth of more talent (Harvey, an upgrade at, say, one position), they could end up on the fringes of the WC race.
Give Wright a 130-140 OPS+, D'Arnaud an 80-90 OPS+, and if Colon and Wheeler are at least average, you've got a pretty good team.

How different does this team look if they spend Chris Young's money on Nelson Cruz?
I do not want to watch either Young play for the Mets ever again, I'd rather watch Captain Kirk flail away, or Brown, or anyone for that matter.
I really have no idea what the Mets are going to do with Flores. Can they at least try him in Left?
I think I'd trade bartolo colon even though he's been a solid pitcher. He's worse as an nl player and I do think the mets do have enough pitching to contend next year.
Not trading Reyes was a major, major error that is practically indefensible.
It's also starting to look like resigning Wright rather than trading him was an error as well.
I think, at the deadline, the Mets intended to try to resign Reyes, and were scared off by the recurrence of his hamstring issues shortly after. There's a good bit in the timeline to suggest this was the case.
Can we wait until the end of the season to draw that conclusion? He's coming off two excellent years-- this is a mediocre half-season that may or may not be indicative of what to expect going forward (FWIW, nearly identical to the 2014 Longoria's having-- .264/.330/.399 vs .278/.336/.395).
I don't know - from what I recall, the Mets always seemed very restrained in their affection for Reyes that year.
Is everybody done with Tejada? He has a .379 OBP with a .757 OPS since May 11. I hate splicing seasons up like that but he's played better since a horrible start to the season. Overall, he has a not terrible 86 OPS+ on the season.
If he finishes the season well, I am OK with him being the starter next year.

Which doesn't disagree with what you probably meant which is that any team, but especially a contender, would be looking to upgrade from Tejada if they could.
but even for his career, he's only (approx) 7 runs below average for his position
#2 are you REALLY convinced Flores is passable there if he's barely played there?
I guess I'd even be fine with parking Flores there to see IF he hits and IF he fields. But one needs to admit those are IFs.
Still can't get used to the fact that Wright's slash line is good for a 109 OPS+ these days.
Of 29 SS with >150 PA, Tejada is 25th of 29 in fWAR, 19th of 25 in wRC+, 15th of 29 in Def(UZR)
Thanks. Not good, but also a lot of room to be worse for starting SSs, it seems. It's this, and wherever he ranks in the more common stats, that make me a little confused at the rending of garments.
