  1. New York Mets 2017 Season Thread

    And just as I was about to say Harvey doesn't look like crap, Lind takes him deep over the wall in left for another juiced ball joke HR

    Have to say I love what I see out of Aoki, not a young player but he has a lot of spring in his step. Toolsy. Great in the outfield. Scrappy pain in the butt at the plate. I wouldn't mind him here next year as a 5th outfielder. He's always hit at this level and he's always been able to get on base. Does not strike out much.

    The floatie arm things are really a lot more noticeable than I thought they would be. The lack of bottom stripes does give it that cheap empty look but I didn't think the arm and sock stripes would be this pronounced. Ugly ugly uniform.

    I think they will tender him in the hope that he can get stronger in the offseason and regain the velocity, but I wonder if this is just a way for them to see if he can figure things out and think his way through games rather than just dominate with his best stuff as he used to. So far he can't. And yes perhaps they also see this as a much needed serving of humble pie as well.
  5. NFL Week 2

    Giants offensive line looks like the worst in football. It is ruining games for them, they absolutely cannot get into any sort of rhythm. Marshall demonstrated his usual propensity for huge drops today. He's still an ok player but, the quickness isn't there anymore. And he was never a speedy receiver even in his prime. But he had trouble getting separation today. Witness that 4Q heave into the endzone where the CB was right on his tail and swatted it away as soon as the ball got near. Beckham I'm sure is receiving treatment...looked fine with the ball in his hands had a very ordinary game. Probably only at 75% or worse. Wasn't a factor Giants defense is pretty good. Not elite in any way though. And that's what they have to be to cover for this offense. And like the Jets yesterday with Raymond, the Giants can't have these ST mistakes like a guy nearly muffing a punt, then picking up the ball and breaking 3 tackles and scoring. The D overall needs to start forcing turnovers, multiple, per game to give the O short fields. Though it doesn't really strike me as a particularly larcenous defense so I don't know if that will happen. Going to Philly and then to Tampa is going to be hard for them, they could legitimately be 0-4 before seeing the Chargers. But then it's Broncos and Seahawks who can both play defense. They see the Raiders and Cowboys and Chiefs later this year as well. This is a scary 0-2 they're in. Going to be tough to right the ship.

    no no. Looks like I was duped by a fake tweet. darn. I always fall for it with twitter. Somebody also tweeted Matt Harveys line since returning from the DL and the Mets score tonight. Looks like a fake tweet as well but is all too real.

    A player like Leonard Williams is like having a great closer on a bad baseball team. Mo Wilkerson I would be shocked if he's back next year as it seems like he's checked out. Could be some friction between him and Bowles that we hear more about once hes gone. Darron Lee has been bad, but it looks like a lot of guys from that mid 1st round on down in 2016 aren't panning out. Could be just a bad crop.

    Great job by deGrom. One of the few true winners on this team. I'm about ready to shut him down though. Let's just save the bullets.
  10. New York Mets 2017 Season Thread

    Reyes would no doubt go play somewhere simply because he can play multiple positions and run. He wouldn't start on any club worth a damn but if you need him to play for 2-3 weeks while somebody recovers on the DL it wouldn't be the worst thing in the world. I just don't want him here. We totally need to bury the Reyes/Wright past already.

    Florham Park is actually nice. That whole area is an upper middle class suburb. And the Jets have one of the best training facilities in the league. Like top 5. But I get what they're saying. The Jets are not an appealing destination. It's not California. And they hear Jets fans chirping NOW about getting one of them like it's a sure thing. It makes them feel uncomfortable and being the savior of a 1-15 or 0-16 franchise is not easy. I think when both declare they will likely go the Eli route and try to force themselves onto a franchise with a better reputation and maybe a championship in the not too distant past. Denver is going to need a Qb, New Orleans, LA Chargers, Pittsburgh, the Giants are going to be in the QB market again to replace Eli. And this is where these kids are going to try and muscle themselves into. But also, this is why sometimes it's just not the best idea to outright tank. You make yourself look so god damn unappealing. Maybe we should've just tried to put a competitive team on the field and make a ridiculous trade up into the top 5 to grab a QB in 2018.

    Huge game for the Giants. Lions are a tough and have done a nice job adding quality talent steadily to that roster over the past few years. They can very well win this one and have the Giants 0-2 having to go into Philly and then into Tampa. With Beckham hobbled and with somebody like Marshall in that locker room, they have to stabilize the season right now or things can get ugly

    The best thing the Bengals can do now is tank and put themselves in play for a top QB for the draft. It's never going to happen with Dalton, though he's not terrible. He sort of reminds me of a Ken O'Brien or Trent Green. Where you keep hanging on to him and just hoping he takes that final step to be consistently good and reliable but that day never comes. You're also afraid to dumo him because you don't want to end up like the Jets or Browns, or Rams who are perpetually in the wilderness looking for a QB.

    When it actually matters he comes to the plate antsy and hyperactive and hacks at eye high inside garbage. The book has been out on his clutch time failures and pitchers know exactly what to do with him. All in all yes, a lot of these guys needed to be jettisoned and it was no hope in salvaging this season especially with the injury situation what it was, but it's just our luck that we sell during the absolute worst possible year to sell. I can remember many years where 30+ year old rentals netted known quality prospects. This year it just wasn't happening.

    Nice knowing you guys, gonna go chug some Clorox Mets sticking with strength coach despite slew of injuries By Mike Puma September 14, 2017 | 3:30am CHICAGO — As the Mets consider methods to keep their players on the field and off the disabled list next season, they remain committed to their senior advisor for strength and conditioning, Mike Barwis. “Mike is not going anywhere,” general manager Sandy Alderson told The Post on Wednesday before the Mets faced the Cubs at Wrigley Field. “Mike is one of our most important staff and resources.” http://nypost.com/2017/09/14/mets-sticking-with-strength-coach-despite-slew-of-injuries/
