Robles and Parnell cannot be trusted with anything going forward. We are going to have to lean heavily on Familia and Clippard...and with the Mejia mess another reliever via trade may be a good idea

7-1 lead to a team in the grave. And the Mets let them off the mat


Parnell was always a soft loser even in his best days.  Mets can't trust him in winnable games anymore.  It was fun while it lasted, considering I literally expected to get nothing from him...but things have evened out in a hurry. 


I'm not a huge Robles guy either, but he has been pitching decently of late.


Notice how Flukas doesn't hit one out when the Mets really need it.  Loser.

Niese walking his usual unecessary tightrope in the 6th as he struggles to deal with prosperity. Cant walk Melvin Upton at .210...or let Norris a guy hitting in the 220s entering this game go 3-3
You were handed a 4-0 lead in the 6th against a dead franchise playing out the string Jon. Finish these clowns.


Give him some credit, there's been many times in the past where he would've been leaving that inning either having blown the lead outright or leaving a mess for someone else to clean up.  Including today, he's had exactly one outing that could be considered bad in his last 10 starts.  In the nine decent-to-good ones, he's allowed only 15 ER combined (no more than three in any one game).  I think Niese will always be what he is, but he at least we've been getting his best for most of the past two months.   


The guy to be aggravated with is Colon, really.  Never gave his team a chance last night.   


Parnell in, good idea.  Give him these kinds of games for a while.  Felt like his earlier success this season was a mirage. 


And he promptly loads the bases and leaves a mess for Robles...who promptly gives up a grand slam.  Damn, even bringing these zilches in with a 6-run lead is dangerous.  Sorry, but for now Parnell just went to the front of the "pitches only when Mets have no chance to win" line.  His last 3 games:  2.1 IP, 7 H, 7 ER, 3 BB, and a blowup in an extremely important game.  And he's as big a part of the Loser Brigade as anyone.  Sorry Bobby, you don't get to raise blood pressures anymore.  Mop-up time.

As much as I've killed Granderson at times and his signing here (and he was never going to have much of chance to live up to the value of his contract, given his warts)...the guy is having a very good year so far overall.  Right now he's slashing .255/.350/.441 after today's 3-run jack.  OB+SLG of .791.  I would've signed up for that faster than a heartbeat from Granderson this year, no questions asked.  This has been his best season in a while.  Hopefully he can get through August and September without disappearing. 


Nice job by Niese to avoid a disastrous inning there in the 6th...gets out of the bases-loaded jam.

Jesus...remember when Montero used to be mentioned in the same breath as deGrom and Syndergaard?  When he was the first one to get the call to the majors, with some memorable outings?  Guy is having shoulder troubles AGAIN.




Starting to feel like a guy who's never going to pan out.

Now the latest rumor - via Brewers beat guys - is that the deal fell apart for 'financial' reasons, hoo boy. I'm not going to believe it till the national guys chime in though.


Guess we'll see...what a friggin' mess.  Flores not in the lineup today. 


Mets up 1-0 early.


Here's an article about what may have killed the deal...on the surface, sounds like the Mets being the Mets:
