Where the hell were the Mets when Harang was just available? He would've been perfect to dump Hefner from the rotation right now.

 

also, the Mets will be wearing the 1993 uniforms in their series vs Colorado as part of the Rockies 20th anniversary celebration

Not even an exec with any power lol.  But hey it's not as if it's unprecedented for us to pick the Marlins' bones (Piazza, Leiter, Delgado, etc).

 

ha, pickens are kind of slim now...but I wouldn't mind Wade Leblanc

Target Field is beautiful (still prefer Citi over it) but come on...why build open air in Minnesota. They lucked out the first couple of seasons, but snow and 30-40 degree nights early season is not unusual out there

Yeah the weather is going to be brutal this weekend. There's even supposed to be some light snow at first pitch!

I'm hoping TC doesn't do silly things with the lineup tonight; there's really no reason the DH should be anybody but Duda, and hopefully Baxter is the beneficiary of that extra lineup spot.

Another error for Ruben in the 5th...he's really got to straighten this out.

 

Impressed with the amount of runs the Mets have scored this year. They may lead the NL at the end of the night. Only 10 games but I expected this team to be bottom 4 in the NL in runs scored. Maybe they have more punch than I thought

10-5 now, Niese really struggling tonight. Cold weather probably to blame.

This has the makings of a frustrating finish.

horrible call at the plate

 

I can't get on Niese. It's like 28 degrees

 

I can see them moving the fences in here(and lowering them). I'm surprised that Morneau bomb wasn't a HR. He killed it.

Nice to see the 6th inning-on go peacefully; got a little worried in the 5th when they made it 10-5. Anyway, huge games from the top 3 in the lineup:

Valdespin: 2-for-5, 1 BB
Murphy: 4-for-5
Wright: 3-for-5, 1 BB

I'd keep the lineup exactly the same for tomorrow - Diamond is a lefty but he actually has a reverse platoon split for his career. Unfortunately it's a stone cold lock Turner will DH (LOL), which means Duda will play the field (bigger LOL?). Yuck.

Parnell is not a closer

 

Probably not.  He seems a little soft mentally, he's always given up his share of hits, and something just seems to be missing.

 

BUT

 

Though it's a very small sample, since Sept 21 of last season, he has pitched 12.1 innings, allowed just three hits, and walked no one, striking out 10.  Yeah, he gave up a run yesterday, but at least it came in a situation where it didn't hurt the Mets one bit.   

 

But here is the good news, if you're looking for some with Parnell..up until late last season, he always gave up a lot of hits (especially for such a hard thrower), and his control wasn't great either.  Now he's not walking anyone and isn't giving up much in the way of hits either.  The $1000000 question is whether or not Parnell is pitching into better luck, as far as allowing hits goes, but at the very least, he's not giving up free passes, which can only make his life easier.

 

We'll find out soon enough if this is another Parnell tease, or if he has turned a corner...color me very cautiously optimistic.

 

Harvey...good lord, what else is there to say?  6 hits and 6 walks in 22 IP, 25 K, .088 batting average against.  Insane.

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.

As everyone here knows, Reyes is going to miss significant time.  That's now the fourth time in the last five season Reyes will miss a significant number of games...why I wasn't upset when the Mets didn't re-sign him to massive dollars.

Solid outing for Wheeler today in Las Vegas: 5.1 IP, 6 hits, 3 ER, 0 BB, 8 K. Those latter two numbers are pretty key.

Didn't see the outing because the Las Vegas' home park camera angle is horrible.

Here is a write-up on Wheeler's last start.

 

http://risingapple.c...could-be-close/

 

Lots of praise for start #3, but the one thing worth noting is that he threw 97 pitches in 5.1 innings...I'm guessing that even though he didn't walk anyone, he probably ran some deep counts here and there. 

 

Anyway, Zach's numbers after three starts:  0-1, 3.86 ERA, 14 IP, 17 H, 9 R, 6 ER, 6 BB, 17 K, 1.64 WHIP.  Outside of the Ks, not exactly wow numbers, but neither were Harvey's AAA stats (though they were solid), and Zach's numbers are clearly going to be hurt by pitching in the PCL.  The guess here is that he's going to do enough to get a call-up this year...he's really going to have to struggle not to.

He plays in a bandbox there in Vegas though right? It could be he was victimized by a cheap home run...or zero foul space on pop ups that would normally be caught but end up in the crowd
