Every once in a while I like to look back at MetsToday posts from the past, when the team appeared to be better and my writing was much more interesting (yet, ironically, had a much smaller audience).
So I went back to October 2008 and found this gem: Which Way Should the Mets Go?
It was written right after The Collapse Part Deux, and some of the biggest issues on the table for the coming offseason included whether to pick up the option on Carlos Delgado’s contract and if they should pursue free-agent reliever Francisco Rodriguez. My feeling was that, with the opening of Citi Field on the horizon, instead of continuing with the band-aid or patchwork route of adding “final pieces to the puzzle”, maybe the Mets should consider trading veterans such as Carlos Beltran and Luis Castillo and start rebuilding with youth.
