25 Things The Mets Need To Do

In no particular order...

1. David Wright needs to hit 3rd. He's not only the future, he's the best hitter on the team.

2. Jeff Keppinger shoud hit leadoff. The team needs someone who can get on base at the top of the order. Reyes isn't getting it done.

3. Righties Cameron and Piazza should hit fifth and sixth. No one cares about Meintkiewicz hitting between them.

4. Reyes should hit eighth. It's the only spot in the lineup he's qualified for.

5. Beltran should be disabled. He's signed for seven years. Two weeks doesn't matter in the scheme of things.

6. Diaz should be up, forever. He should be starting and hitting fifth, while Cameron hits second, while Beltran is out.

7. Cairo should be released as soon as Beltran comes back. He can't hit or play short. Woodward's better than him at every facet of the game except the 'played on the Yankees' facet.

8. Matsui should be traded away for anything. There's no point in having two backup infielders. If he'd accept a demotion to work on his fielding, that would be fine too.

9. Valent should be given some time, but he should also be used. Daubach really isn't likely to be any better.

10. Woodward, Cairo and Anderson should never start in the outfiled again while Victor Diaz is alive.

11. "Hey, Schureholz, you're short a pitcher, we've got one for you, free of charge. Ishii. Kaz Ishii."

12. Victor Zambrano looks much better to me already. He's the fifth starter.

13. Aaron Heilman is the fourth starter.

14. Jae Seo and Royce Ring are up. Manny Aybar is out.

15. Mike DeJean is no longer a setup man. He's a mop up guy. Heath Bell is the setup man.

16. If anyone will give up something valuable for Braden Looper, Heath Bell is the closer.

17. Someone needs to be hired to do all of the in-game managing and lineup card setting for Willie.

18. If he won't listen, Willie needs to be fired right away and replaced. Wally Backman would be a good replacement who fans would feel better about even if he made a mistake.

19. Mike Piazza needs his mustache back.

20. The Mets need to draft Jeff Clement if he's available. If he's not they need Stepehen Drew or Jed Lowrie. They don't need Craig Hansen.

21. Cliff Floyd should be in Anaheim. Casey Kotchman should be in New York. Omar should throw in whatever he needs to get this deal done. Money, Seo, Bannister, anything but Milledge, Humber or Petit.

22. The Mets need a better backup catcher. Castro had potential, but he's not getting it done. There are people out there who can probably be had for a song. Mike Rivera, Bobby Estalella. Omar needs to get one.

23. Ramon Hernandez needs to be signed during the offseason.

24. Tom Glavine needs to not reach his incentives.

25. If the Mets can't get Kotchman, they need to find someone. Pena, Adrian Gonzalez, Jason Dubois could probably play first. It's supposed to be the easiest position to fill.
