Bad and Boring

I’m not even mad anymore. What’s the use?

A couple of quick factoids:

And with that … well, what do you say? The Mets generally pitch somewhere between OK and pretty well, but they can’t hit. They need to get more bats somewhere. They aren’t going to get them for two years or so from the farm system. They could get them by trading off some of their surplus of starting pitching. I know this. You know this. The Mets know this. Are they going to do something about it? Do they have some other plan?

Would trading for bats work? It might and it might not. Is what the Mets are doing now working? By this point the answer to that seems rather clear [1].
