    And he did it with that eye issue too. Which is pretty amazing.

    When Harvey's gone the floodgates will REALLY open regarding "anonymous sources within the Mets organization" all the dirty laundry regarding him is going to flow. Boras too (we know much of that already) I contend that Harvey is out of shape and his extracurricular activities are a bigger problem then the Mets are adding on. He's probably a party/NY night life guy. Things have gone to his head and I think he's just not as prepared when he was still trying to "prove it" on the big New York stage. Perhaps it's not so unusual to see a drop off in year two after Tommy John...but the Mets were in a playoff race and ultimately World Series last season. This could be once in a lifetime and it was all hands on deck. Still, it can't JUST be that. His era didn't go from 2.71 to 3.71 or even 4.50. He's sitting there with a fat 6.08. That's ridiculous. You don't keep starting at the major league level for a good team with championship aspirations with that kind of era.

    And he's a tough lefty unlike Wood who is mediocre and like...the only lefty we can hit fairly consistantly. Gonna be ugly

    Solid bounce back win One thing this team does well under Terry is bounce back. He's probably a great clubhouse guy behind closed doors even if he's a putz on the bench at times. This team never seems to get down.

    Hurt more than help...yes I tend to agree. But he hasn't been piss poor which is what I'd expected. I suppose it's like when you don't study and expect a D but get a C-. 1. Thor 2. Matz 3. deGrom 4. Colon 5. Harvey - That's our rotation right now, from legit #1 to fringe 5.

    I just can't make heads or tails of the season Wright is having. His average is in the toilet but his OBP is good. He's striking out like Mark Reynolds circa 2009. His RBI's are paltry, but he does have a fairly respectable 6 home runs in May (which isn't terrible for a guy with Spinal Stenosis who can't play every day.

    Ty Kelly, Eric Campbell...injuries taking their toll when these guys are given big at bats. The results speak for themselves.

    Of course it had to be Babe Murphy. Of course
  9. New York Mets 2016 Season Thread

    Well that's that. DL him. Maybe let his dead arm rest until the All Star break. He cant really go more than 4 at this point.

    Yes it was vertigo with Plawecki. And Harvey had his issue this year, and Ike with Valley Fever a few years ago. Strange maladies are a thing for the Mets during Spring Training. Kind of like food poisoning was for the Devils in the playoffs back in the early 2000's.

    Impressed with the effort tonight. Neat and tidy win. Bart in control start to finish. Offense has a nice breakout. Always good to win handily when you're undermanned. Now Harvey tomorrow (with the 7 line in the building) a poor outing means a near certain DL trip. Something about the Nats just doesnt scare me. Murph cannot possibly keep this up, Werth is a .220 hitter at this point. Wilson Ramos can be great but an injury prone catcher will not hit .337 forever. Zimmerman is not a threat. I just look at them and see 85 wins tops. If they ever hit any sort of injury bump in the road they can be derailed rather quickly Phillies should be coming back to earth shortly.

    31 home runs in only 96 regular season games as a Met. That's insane.
  13. New York Mets 2016 Season Thread

    I have no idea how Murphy continues to do this. Someone tell me this is unsustainable, but it's been like two months and he's the white Tony Gwynn. At 31 years old no less? How did he get this good this fast this "late" in his career? Guy is pure hitter. And it's not like it's been some endless tear sincen the Dodger series...he didnt hit a lick during the World Series.

    God damn Wright killed that inning with the strikeo.... 3 run HR Wright *edit post...delete* Bartolo has to get us into the 7th at least 5-3. He doesnt have to be perfect but no implosions.
  15. New York Mets 2016 Season Thread

    So Duda has a stress fracture in his back and was put on the 15 day DL. Metsblog is saying 4-6 week injury. Honestly I'm shocked this wasn't worse. ASB is probably when we'll see him next.
