08:12 AM ET 02.14 | Mets fans may not want to return to the Steve Trachsel era, but they may be on target. The Mets suffered 85 defeats in 2011 and responded by signing closer Frank Francisco to a two-year, $12 million contract. It seems that every team in the National League East is getting better -- except the Mets. ... [The] Mets face a daunting task. They must contend with a division that [Sandy Alderson] said "rivals the American League East" in its competitive depth. The Mets' best hope for a .500 season involves [Johan Santana], [David Wright] and Jason Bay reviving their careers in the same year. If that doesn't come to pass, they could finish last for the first time since [Trachsel] was their No. 1 starter.

Stick a fork in Jason Bay. He's blind as a bat.

Right. Everything will be focused on the Nats as MLB is rooting for them.

Morning - had my weekly weigh in - down 2 more (283 now - with a couple of trips to Marlin and Rays 2$ fish taco happy hours). So that's a total of 29. Hope to breach 280 this next week. How are you doing.
