What Sandy wishes he could've done about the 90-win proclamation getting out (start at around 1:00):

Mets have to go 10-1 over their final 11 games of May to avoid finishing with a losing record for the month.  They're 5-13 so far.  10-1 gives them a 15-14 record.

DeGrom must be loving this. 2nd start, pitching great...and the Mets haven't given him a single run of support. He must be yearning for the minors at this point where he at least played for a team that can score

Well there is your typical Mets game their. Choking in big spots (bases loaded again) leaving a small country on the bases in general, stupidity on defense. Wasting a pretty solid effort on the mound, and your franchise offensive player coming up small in a big spot as he's done the majority of his career.

 

Last place, no ability whatsoever to win at home and now 5-14 in their last 19. Wonderful.

 

Just pull the plug on this abomination. Forfeit the rest of the games.

At least the Mets are getting some young guys some playing time, and hopefully some of the guys who are making convincing statements yet again as to why they shouldn't get another season here will be jettisoned FINALLY. 

 

Tejada is now 14-for-his-last-88 (.159 BA).  Even if Flores isn't the answer (he's not), he's Not-Tejada, which is good enough for me.  Tejada's gotten enough chances.  It's over (at least it should be here).

 

The Mets could really use a Keith Hernandez-type, a leader who has that knack of coming up with big in the spotlight moments (both at the plate AND the field)...the guy who helps to lead you out of the dark days and is great to have around as the winning pieces are put in place.  David Wright couldn't be further from that kind of player.  The funny thing is he will probably hit in the the low .300s, which means his fanboys will start with the "It's not his fault" crap, but Jesus, two home runs (none on the road BTW)?!  Funny how visiting players never seem to have much trouble hitting balls out of Citi.     

 

------------------

 

Syndergaard went 5 innings last night, gave up 5 hits, 2 walks, 3 ER, 2 home runs and struck out six.

 

For a 21-year-old playing in a hitter's league, his numbers are fine...but it seems like he's rarely allowed to pitch more than five innings (I think this is erring on the side of being overly cautious):

 

10 starts, 53.2 IP, 59 H, 29 R, 24 ER, 6 HR, 19 BB, 57 K, 4.02 ERA

Justin Turner signed with the Dodgers.

 

I'd like to preemptively congratulate him on the game winning home run he's about to hit against the Mets this year

 

well not quite on the mark but you get the idea

At least they recovered to win...that would've been a tough one for sure.

 

Doofus predictably sinking now that he's playing everyday...batting .190 since May 5, .220 since April 15.  This is what always happens with him, but I guess Sandy and his band of merry men needed to see it one more time to be sure. 

 

Still can't help but wonder, if Gee comes off the disabled list and Niese continues to be solid, if one of those two gets moved at the deadline.  Colon would probably have to be phenomenal from here on out to merit any interest, but that second year is a killer. 

 

Listened to the WFAN yesterday and I'm surprised by the number of callers who seem to be willing to give Sandy a pass.  We know the Wilpons' financial woes clearly affect the team's ability to spend and do business, but look at who Sandy signed:

 

Granderson to pretty big money.

CYoung to an iffy "what the hell, why not?" contract.

An overweight, aging Colon to two years. 

 

Though the money Sandy had available to spend clearly wasn't what he had hoped for, what he DID have, he spent very poorly this past offseason.  Even if Colon was pitching lights-out (and he's been pretty good in 6 out of his 9 starts, to be fair), why did the Mets need to spend $20 million over TWO seasons for him?!  They already had Niese, Gee, Mejia and Wheeler, with Harvey slated to return in 2015, and some young starters likely to get a shot soon, and as we've seen, both deGrom and Montero are getting their chances sooner than expected.  Did Mets really need another starting pitcher?  Sure, you can never have too many starting pitchers, but if money is tight, why the hell would you spend a considerable chunk of it on something you really don't need?

Back down to nine HR's now lol (with the rainout)

 

I'm half tempted to go Sunday because it's supposed to be such a nice day, on the other hand it might be too nice a day to sit around and kvetch about the Mets for eight hours :lol: 

 

I did go to a doubleheader once in 2006, I remember the first game against the Marlins being a tight loss in Pelfrey's ML debut and then the second game we kicked the crap out of them so badly I left in the fifth inning (it was 17-3 or something like that).

I'm supposed to go today, but not sure if I will.  Weather isn't supposed to be great, and my wife wasn't feeling well last night.

 

I went to that same doubleheader...Valentin hit a grand slam in the first inning of Game 2, then a bases-loaded triple in the second inning.  Pelfrey debuted in that second game.  We went down to the restaurant after the second (not the Diamond Club...I forget what it was called)...they had good burgers there.

 

I knew some player had gone nuts in Game 2 and had seven RBI after two innings, but admittedly I had to look it up.

 

And since I had read Steven King's The Stand, which had a character named Vic Pelfrey, for some reason it took me a while to stop thinking of Mike Pelfrey as Vic Pelfrey.

 

Speaking of Pelf...it's too bad that the Mets didn't try to trade him off 2010 (nmig, to his credit, advocated strongly for that at the time).  In a way I understood why they kept him...he was coming off a career year in 2010 and had been pretty good in 2008 (2008 and 2010 are almost identical statistically).  Clearly he was never going to be an ace, but the Mets probably thought he could at least be a solid #4-type, at a reasonable cost.

 

He's been flat-out awful since...all of the numbers are bad, and he's had trouble staying healthy to boot.  His 12-29 record since 2011 is pretty well-deserved.

lol you're right the blowout game was Pelfrey's debut.  For some reason I remember him having lost but I think it was Maine that pitched the first game.  I did remember Valentin's big game though.

 

It is amazing how we thought we had a potentially good young rotation with Pelfrey, Maine and Oliver Perez and that blew up pretty quickly.

For me, the downfall of Generation K felt even worse.  Isringhausen and Pulsipher had shown a ton of promise in '95, and Paul Wilson (1st-overall pick in '94) was due to come up in '96.     

 

Well, we know how that all turned out...injuries, ineffectiveness, and Izzy finding eventually finding sustained success as a closer...with Oakland.  Steve Phillips took some flak for that one, but Izzy had struggled in '96 and '97, missed all of '98 due to injury, and wasn't lighting it up in '99 and had just been converted to a reliever just before he was dealt...give Billy Beane credit for thinking Izzy could close.  Beane seemed to take some delight in having fleeced Phillips...think he said something about how easy it was to convince Phillips that a bad deal for him was actually "good".

Same old Wheeler.  Tons of pitches and laboring.  It so rarely looks easy and smooth. 

 

God I hope this is growing pains, because the more I see of him, the less I'm impressed.  He seems like he has a lot to figure out.

Well at least Wright hit a home run...and ALL three of his HR this season have come at CitiField.  Are all the away parks now too cavernous for him as well?

 

His incredibly bizarre season continues:  in his last 7 games, he's 13-for-29, but never seems to do anything with runners on base (one RBI, off yesterday's home run).  It's hard to believe he's batting .307 on the season...the awful K-to-BB ratio and the lack of walks in general help to take away from how the BA "feels", but still for a guy who's hitting .448 in his last seven GP, and on pace for a not-awful 90 RBI, it doesn't feel like he's been hot or productive at all.

Took the words out of my mouth.

Is Wright having a horrific season? Well no...not really. But it seems like all of his production is fruitless. It's never a big double or rbi single in a big spot. It's always him swinging and missing a 3-2 pitch off the plate with the bases loaded and 1-2 out.

One of those "good games/bad games" for Montero.  10 K in 5 IP is nice, as is only allowing 2 hits, but he also walked three and has thrown 102 pitches to this point.  His pitch count got driven up by the pop-up near first lost in the sun, but man it seems like every Met starting pitcher is always up around 100 pitches thrown by the 6th. 

 

Meanwhile Arroyo is at 57 pitches through five.

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.

7 mil for Chris Young. What a train wreck


What a microcosm of the mets since 2006 this game is. 4 double plays. Another small country left on the basepaths. And one of the DP's wasn't even a true DP as Chavez never tagged Arroyo, but the Mets weren't smart enough to notice

Unbelievable. 5th double play grounded into. Marshall comes in and can't find the plate against Abreu. Duda decides to swing at ball 1 and grounds into a DP

 

New, unheard of levels of ineptitude? Yep, the Mets will find them.

More typical Mets ineptitude in the 9th as Murphy drops an easy throw from Wright that would have ended the inning. Stupidity, incompetence, and choking all around. 90 wins here we come

 

now 2 on 1 out in the 9th. Only fitting this ends on a DP or some amazing defensive play or excruciating HR saving catch at the wall

 

 

This is not even the least bit shocking. And yes we are the only team in baseball that has to deal with this kind of stuff.

 

6-16 in our last 22.
