You've got two guys filling two big pairs of shoes. Gelbs replaces Burkhardt, who left for a better national deal. Figgie replaces Ojeda, whose contract with Comcast/Wilpon SNY was not renewed. Of the two, Figgie has the most potential. Gelbs is as bland as an unsalted cracker. A placeholder until something better comes along.

The Castergine v. Wilpon February date is just a conference. As others have written, a trial (if it comes to that) won't be until 2016. As For #MetsBillboard, you may see a billboard in Port St. Lucie besides the ones on Roosevelt Avenue. And in some other Metsian places, too.

We can't fire the owners. Collins is the easy way out. As for Alderson, remember why he's there: To save the Wilpons from themselves. Placed in the position by the Wilpons' savior, Allan Huber (Hyman Roth, or Bud) Selig. Will Sandy continue after this season with the Mets?

Why is Mikey on Fox Sports? Probably due to ego-fueled WFAN internal politics. The Boomer Esiason/Craig Carton simulcast was kept in-house by CBS on its CBS Sports Network after their MSG Network contract was up. Mikey then wanted to be on a half-assed national network too after the YES Network pulled out the carpet after the A-Rod mess ... a network that potentially has more juice than CBSSN. Hence, Fox Sports.
