101 pitches in seven innings is a hell of a lot better than 101 pitches in five, lol.

Funny how Terry says the Mets have to start keeping Harvey's innings down. Does this clown even listen to himself? YOU are most of the problem here Terry!


Maybe 'someone' in the front office had a sit-down with TC after the latest push the envelope start with blisters...

He's still hurting a bit when running. Sure seems like he'll be a September call up at best.

 

Man, lost year for Travis.  He's going to be 25 at the start of next season too...getting up there a little.

Has anyone noticed what Oliver Perez has been up to in Seattle the last two years? He's seriously been one of the most dominant relievers in baseball. I kid you not. He's back to throwing hard, he's suddenly throwing strikes, and he's missing tons of bats this season. He's not just doing it against lefties -- his strikeout rate is actually higher against righties this season. Some other fun facts:

 

- He has the 7th highest Zone%, that is pitches inside the strikezone, among all pitchers with at least 60 IP since 2012.
 
- He has the 17th highest F-Strike%, that is first pitch strike rate, among all pitchers with at least 30 IP in 2013.
 
- He has the 7th lowest Contact%, that is contact rate against, among all pitchers with at least 30 IP in 2013.
 
- His 1.92 ERA since 2012 is the 8th best among all pitchers with at least 60 IP.
 
Jeff Sullivan, who wrote an article on Oliver Perez today for Fangraphs, pretty much summed it up best:
 
It’s almost inconceivable that Perez would develop into a reliable strike-thrower, but here we are, and this is our universe. A few years ago, Perez threw strikes like he thought strikes were balls. Now he has the same strike rate as CC Sabathia. This is a sport that we try to predict.

 

 
Baseball can be really weird.

I hadn't even noticed since Ollie had been so "out of sight, out of mind" but wow....nobody could've anticipated such a turnaround. Still I don't think he could've done it here under intense media scrutiny

So strange that Terry now pulls Hefner at 77 pitches. That's about 120 less than he normally lets our starters throw

Wow TC pulling Hefner for a pinch-hitter despite throwing just 78 pitches. I realize it's late in the game but he was cruising and now it's in the hands of a bad bullpen.

I was still impressed by Germen. His strikeout and walk rates out of the Las Vegas bullpen were very impressive and his changeup is a killer. He gets knocked for throwing a straight fastball and he lacks a 3rd pitch (hence the fact he's in the bullpen), but if he can keep up the velocity he showed tonight (94-95) and find the plate like he did in the minors (5.9 BB% in AAA), he could be a good reliever. 

 

Hefner continues to pitch well; he was great outside of the 2-run homer to Alvarez, and he certainly could've gone deeper, maybe into the 9th, if given the chance.

If anyone wants to watch, the MLB Future's Game is going to be on at 2pm ET today. The game will be aired on ESPN2 and MLB.com. It's worth tuning in just for the prospects, but if you're not so into that, at least check out the 1st inning since Rafael Montero and Noah Syndergaard are the starting pitchers for their respective teams.

Anyone hear about the tantrum Valdespin threw when being demoted? Was apparently furious, called Terry a cocksucker, and demanded to be put on the DL. Wow.

 

The Mets really should just release him tomorrow; he stinks as a player and his personality is amazingly worse than his baseball skill.

Gee was really terrific today. Reminds me a bit of Rick Reed with the way he battles. Can't go into the ASB losing 3 in a row. All in all 6-3 and a very successful road trip.

 

Buck is getting more scheduled days off and it's really paying off. He's 9 for his last 25.

Mets go into the ASB having gone 16-10 in their last 26.  That's a nice little run of winning baseball for team that's not likely to finish the year as a .500 ballclub. 

 

nmig, heard about Valdespin's tantrum, and the Mets should just cut this loser loose.  The guy is delusional about how good he is, which is bad enough, but he is also clearly one of those guys who thinks it won't ever be his fault...the world is against him, he never got a fair chance, etc.  He'll always have a chip on his shoulder because of that, but he's like the "meh" looking girl with a "meh" personality (who's probably bitchy and annoying to boot) who thinks she's some major prize.  Jordany, hate to break it to you, but you're really not anywhere NEAR good enough on the field to be such an abrasive a$$hole who no one can stand to be around.  You're an extremely easy guy to say soyanara to, even if you're incapable of seeing it. 

 

Also nmig, re:  your "out-of-date" comment with regards to Terry...he continues to prove why the only job he could get was the one no one else wanted, and why no one else was knocking on his door.  The one thing that worries me just a little (because I still think he's almost certainly gone after the season), is that Passive starts thinking Terry is orchestrating this turn-around (especially if the Mets turn in a .500ish second half...if the Mets went, say 36-35 after the ASB, would Sandy say, "Hey, I know the overall record doesn't look pretty, but the Mets went 52-45 after a tough start, and we're getting better, and the team really started to come together under Terry..."  Hopefully Passive looks at the bigger picture with Terry, starting with his misuse/overuse of Matt Harvey, but then yanking Hefner out of a game where he was pitching terrific baseball (and had the ASB coming for extra rest), along with other mistakes that have been pointed out. 

 

Let's face it, it's not so much that Terry's been this great button-pusher, in so much as it's been some overachieving/surprising performances.  Jeremy Hefner, for one.  And Marlon Byrd.  Eric Young was a "What the hell, why not?" trade that is paying off short-term dividends...Passive's OF approach was clearly to throw sh!t at the wall and see what stuck, but somehow at the moment, with Byrd and Young it's paying off.  Josh Satin continues to hit despite losing playing time to the useless undeserving zilch that is Ike Davis...if Ike doesn't start hitting the damned ball within a week or so after the ASB, send him down for the rest of the season...guy's gotten enough friggin' chances, and the now the guy who waited patiently to get HIS chance and actually HITS is getting fvcked over as a result.

Buck is getting more scheduled days off and it's really paying off. He's 9 for his last 25.

 

Rick Reed was a hell of a lot of better than Gee, especially in his first two seasons as a Met.  His control was scary (1.7 BB per 9 IP for his career).  His first two Met seasons, he pitched 420.2 IP and walked just 60 hitters.  This year's Hefner actually reminds me much more of Reed than Gee does.

 

Re:  Buck, he's somehow on pace to have the best HR/RBI numbers of his career, which is kind of scary, considering that he was an offensive black hole for just about three months of this year.  But at least he's starting to get hot at just the right time...who knows, many some GM will see the good July numbers (hopefully that continues), see the overall solid "at a glance" HR/RBI numbers, and take a gamble at the deadline...I don't kid myself that Buck is bringing back anything special, and the Mets will definitely have to eat most of the contract, and the Mets catching situation will definitely suffer in the short-term, especially if D'Arnaud never gets healthy in 2013...but Sandy HAS to kick the tires and see if Buck draws some kind of interest.

Can't help but wonder if he'd fold if traded to a playoff contender.
