You are invited: Mets Chat Room, tonight at 7

On Monday evenings at 7, I will host a Mets Chat Room, where we can talk all things Mets.

Let’s see, there’s who among the Mets’ free agents they should retain, and who out there they should throw money at. … Willie Randolph, once rejected by Milwaukee, is a candidate. … Five days after the Series they must decide on Carlos Delgado.

And, of course, we will preview the World Series.

So, there’s a lot to discuss. I hope you’ll join me tonight and every Monday at 7 during the off-season.

Thanks, JD.

Mets Chat Room: Talkin’ Mets and baseball.

CHAT ROOM: What's on your mind?

CHAT ROOM: What's on your mind?

Hi folks. Hope you’re enjoying the holiday. Especially if you had the day off. The Mets are quiet, but of course your imagination and passions about them are not. So, we can talk about that.

Then there are the playoffs. I hadn’t planned on blogging during the playoffs, but your response has been terrific, so I’ll continue.

Rays and Red Sox are on this afternoon, followed by Dodgers-Phillies. We have Giants and Browns tonight on MNF, so there’s a lot to talk about. If you’ve got any comments or questions, let’s have them. Looking forward to talking with you.

Gooood Morning: From the overnight.

Have a good day.

Have a good day.

Quiet last night on the West Coast. I’ll keep posting the Moon thread and hopefully we can do a Pacific Chat Room.

My thoughts on some of the comments raised on the overnight:

-Castillo was never healthy all year, but the times he did play his attitude was suspect. A healthy and motivated Castillo? Well, it could happen. He played well in spurts in 2007. The Mets would like to deal Castillo, but if that doesn’t happen, I don’t see them cutting him and paying him his entire contract. The Mets don’t work that way.

-To me, Perez is one whom I would worry about being too complacent with a big contract. I have no basis to say that other than a gut feeling.

One more thing, if you haven’t already, scroll down a couple of threads to the one about your favorite uplifting song.

Mets after Midnight: The Left Coast edition.

Shining on the Left Coast.

I mentioned this to Patrick, but if there’s enough interest, I’d be interested in doing a Mets Chat Room at midnight one night next week. If you’re game, I’ll be there. Please let me know your interest.

Derek Lowe lost it all at once tonight. We were giving him props over Oliver Perez when Chase Utley and Pat Burrell took him deep. Phillies lead, 1-0. No worries yet.

The playoffs, what the Mets should do, and anything else on your mind, the floor is yours.
