    Not sure why Eric Campbell is on this team...

    Moving Conforto up in the lineup has made a huge difference. Mix in a hot Cespedes and damn... here we go...

    Chalk that up as a Cespedes win. I agree wholeheartedly this team can't win playoff games the way their offense is constructed.

    Thanks, Rubin!

    TdA officially on the dl. It's time for Plawecki to step up and take it away from him.

    I'm thinking about Harvey in particular. He's had games where they've continued going with a pitch over and over again. When Harvey clearly didn't have it. These are things that separate very good teams from great teams. The catcher is most important player on the diamond. Yes, I absolutely believe TdA has cost these pitchers runs and games. These guys are never going to sell him out but it's clear to see. Bottomline, he's not getting it done. We kill certain players on this team regularly, Travis is not serviceable behind the plate. He's lousy. Piazza has even said more nicely than I have on numerous occasions. Mike has worked with him a bit but I would betsome of this likely comes from him talking with the pitchers also. As far as lack of motivation is concerned TdA has been demoted in the past because of the same thing. He came back and was better. Now, here we are again.

    TdA is a lousy catcher so if he isn't hitting he provides nothing useful to the team. I would give Plawecki some more starts perhaps that will motivate TdA. I believe we need the catcher to help navigate our young pitcher's through games where they don't have their best stuff. These guys are filthy enough where they should be able to still dominate when they are off.

    Too bad David couldn't go on th dl indefinitely like he did last year...

    The Mets still can't seem to throw one... and Santana thing is so tainted like a stolen item.

    I agree with everything except the part about Flores. The kid exceededexpectations at a position he should have never held last year and held his own with the bat. Now, he'sjust not playing. So, he literally has nothing to build off of. But, youre right, he's not getting Captain America's position no matter what he does.

    Agreed, I'm not really in love with all the changes the game has undertaken. K's aren't about lack of talent or facing amazing pitching any more. It's about approach to at bats and trying to walk all the damn time. Go up there looking to hit a line drive not just getting on. Line drives are what rattle pitchers. Makes them think maybe my sh!t isn't that good.

    The Mets K a lot because they take too many pitches. It seems like they are alway giving good pitches to hit because they want to work pitch counts. Walks will come if you approach at bats like your going up there to drive the ball hard. The Mets approach is to look for a pitch to jack out of the ballpark after the pitcher has already thrown them strike one.

    I can't help but think of Ryan. every time Isee the 34 I think of the express. Thor is my dreamed up pitcher. The guy is a freak of nature and he's so damn young. Every thing he throws comes out effortlessly. This is why I never think TJ and Thor in the same sentence.
  14. New York Mets 2016 Season Thread

    Is Thor the ace? I'd say he is right now...

    What was the Mets approach at the dish luke yesterday? Were they more aggressive or was the same and the ball just broke well? If they had the same approach and just got different results that still doesn't give me any hope. I was away from home yesterday and didn't get to watch the game. I'm glad Matz bounced back.
