Well that was a nice game to go to...Mets win, the giveaway calendar was nice and we got a Subway card for a free sub with it, and the sun was right over me in left field so I didn't even need a jacket for much of the game. And I unexpectedly ran into two of my friends on the train ride up to NY.

Yeah the giveaway was awesome with the Subway card (not a fan of them, but hey, free 6" sub works for me) and coupons. The actual calendar is pretty sweet. I was in RF so the sun didn't get to me until like the 3rd or so inning; before that I was freezing my ass off. :lol: I'm sure there was absolutely ZERO chance you saw me, but I had a 1986 Doc Gooden jersey on with the traditional blue cap.

Fun game and glad they won.

7: I'm not crazy for the BP/postgame hats with Mr. Met but I actually really like the one they wear in games. Had to pick one up once I saw it on sale weeks ago.

Nah, I was gonna PM you or something but I knew I'd be getting there probably last minute (just after 12:30 to be exact) with barely enough time to eat something and walk around a little before the game started, and they tend to be pretty strict over there about checking tickets during the game.  I wound up trying a pastrami dog which wasn't bad.  

 

Wound up wearing my Wright jersey for like the first time ever haha, usually I just content myself with wearing my white Mets t-shirt with a artistic picture of Shea on the front of it.  I was wearing my red Devil t-shirt on underneath which my friend on the train noticed.  I got so much sun out I even got a little sunburn if you can believe that :blink:  What the hell is wrong with me that I can get sunburn on a 50 and windy day? :lol:  

 

If Cowgill's HR had gone just a little higher I might have had a chance for it but where I was I couldn't actually see it go out, I was just going by the crowd reaction.  At least the Mets gave me a win, probably would have been better off going home and taking a nap after that.  But I'd do the Met-Devil doubleheader again, when the Devils aren't playing like ass :P

Mets probably won't win today; Laffey stinks and Fernandez is one of the best pitching prospects in baseball.

Too bad they took Nimmo over him in the 2011 Draft.

lol at Redmond playing the infield in with two runners in scoring position up one.  That's something you maybe do in August when you have nothing to lose and say **** it, not something you do in April.

 

It was ugly but at least they managed to do what they needed to do on this homestand, 4-2.

Mets got a few breaks plus did the little things right in the 9th. Tejada nicked by a pitch...break, but Kirk did a terrific job. He knew they were going back outside again after that backdoor slider froze him earlier in that AB. He went with the pitch and Tejada judged that ball perfectly...he was able to take the extra base

Two series wins.  Nice start. 

 

And God is Duda an absolutely terrible fielder.  He could stick in the majors as a 4th-outfielder/power off the bench, but teams like this one (rebuilding/poor record types) are going to be his only chance to be a starter.  The only way he's a starter on a good team is if someone ahead of him gets hurt, and there's no better options for that good team available. 

 

I'll be glad as players like that...the ones that remind you that the Mets aren't good YET...are upgraded.  It looks like the Mets could be an ugly but entertaining 70-92...maybe a little better if Niese, Harvey, and Gee all pitch well, and Wheeler is able to contibute this season.   

 

And in goofy numbers...John Buck has a batting average of .400, but an OB% of .391.  How is this possible?  To have a OB% lower than one's batting average, you have to basically never walk (Buck has walked once), and have some sac flies or sac bunts...though sac flies or bunts count as 0 for 0 in the calculation of batting averages, they count as 0-for-1 in OB% calculation.  So basically:

 

Buck is 8-for-20 in hitting.

Has drawn one walk (1-for-1)

Has two sac flies (0-for-2)

 

So for the season, he's 9-for-23, as far as OB% calculation goes. 

 

The highest number of at-bats a MLB player ever had in a full season that finished with this anomaly was Ernie Bowman, in 1963...in 125 AB, he had a batting average of .184, and an OB% of .181.  Even Jason Bay laughs at those numbers.

It's easy to support a great player when he's playing at his very best. It takes a true fan to support that same player during those rare moments and stretches when he's not. Babe Ruth went 0-4 some games, and sometimes Wayne Gretzky was held pointless. There may be such a thing as greatness, but no such thing as absolute perfection every single night.

he really has. As that Utley roller was developing I said to myself "watch him either boot it or throw it into the dugout"

 

luckily Harvey bailed his team out again

I know it didn't really matter much, but Ike's swing in the top of the 9th inning with men on base was just embarrassing.



Always nice to walk into Philly and beat those bastards

Admittedly, my patience for Ike Davis and David Wright is pretty thin.  Wright's at least off to a decent start, but to me he'll still be a guy you can get out (and likely strike out) when you really need to do it. 

 

If Buck wasn't off to his absurd start, Davis would likely already start to hear it, even just seven games in...last year's sh!t shart is still plenty fresh in a lot of minds.  Facing Lee tonight probably won't help him much. 

 

Harvey...what else is there to say?  His two starts have been a joy to watch.

 

For his career to date (12 starts):

 

73.1 IP, 46 H, 19 ER, 30 BB, 89 K, 2.33 ERA 

 

And the BB have been better this season than last:  2.57 per 9 IP this season, compared to 3.94 per 9 IP last season.  This is all a puny sample of course, but that's still a hell of a beginning...he's only given up more than 2 ER in 2 out of his 12 major-league starts.  At any rate, he's a player that's a lot of fun to talk about.

I've been thinking recently about getting Giancarlo Stanton into this outfield...Miami is off to a horrible start and he's just floundering and likely just beaten down at this point. Much like 1998 with Piazza, this may be a good time to make a splash.

 

Syndegaard

Duda

Familia

Den Dekker 

Cash (not a ton...we are the Mets after all)

 

for

 

Stanton

 

That doesn't sound all that crazy does it? Do we need to shove another prospect in there? I mean Syndegaard is rated pretty highly...we know Duda's deficiencies but they can stick him in the OF or at 1b. He CAN hit for power and get on base. Would Nimmo be a must for this trade getting done?

Need wayyyyy more than that 7. Stanton is one of the best players in the game, he's young, under control awhile. Behind maybe Harper and Trout, he's probably the 3rd most valuable asset (trade value wise) in baseball. All 30 teams would be in on him and bowling down Miami's door to get him.

Realistically, I don't think they move him until next winter. But any Stanton package will have to start with Harvey or Wheeler, and even then I don't think the Mets have enough unless the prospects behind them have HUGE years.

A team like Texas will probably try and get him with Profar and others.

Yikes...Gee is really taking it on the chin tonight.  Got a little unlucky in the 2nd inning, but this third inning...they are literally just teeing off.

 

Feel free to go get him any second now Terry...by all means, leave the poor guy in after he gives up 3 home runs in the inning...

Gee's velocity was much better tonight per PFX, averaged just under 90. Horrible results aside, that's certainly encouraging compared to last game where he was 88 and didn't hit 90 once. He's still not up to where he was last year, when he averaged just under 91, but I wouldn't really expect him to be. At least this is a step in the right direction in that regard.
