If one can find a bright spot to this Mets offensive brownout, then perhaps it's this: We've silenced all of those dummies who pointed to "The Core" as the root of the Mets' problems.

how the heck is david wright hitting around .350....seems that he strikes out just about every time i watch the mets games. he probably has as many strike outs as hits... dont like to see him at the plate, with a runner in scoring position, and the game on the line... an all star...????

I couldn't disagree more: Reyes will never be the player anyone thought he would be. He's clearly dumb, and only the third best shortstop IN THE DIVISION!.
David Wright is a good player - not a great, cornerstone player. His .360 bating average is about as week as any I've ever seen. He his all singles and never with anyone on base.
Beltran is indicative of what these Mets are: expensive, flashy, big name, talented. But also no heart, no grit, no clutch, no winning pedigree.
Dump em all, esp. the GM.

No more politically correct decisions. Make correct decisions.
No mas los mets.

The core wasn't the problem last year, it was the awful bullpen.
