  1. New York Mets 2018 season thread

    Letting up not just the tie but the lead to that pitiful offense (and we're not much better) after getting the first batter is really the last straw. He can't be trusted in any situation anymore. There was a stretch where he was pretty lockdown, but his stuff isn't the same anymore. If Callaway had a spine he'd demote him from the closers role but who knows how things go on there in Metland. Could be Sandy wants him as closer still and is dictating to Callaway. By the time this team leaves Milwaukee they'll be 1 game under .500

    Dykstra has been unwell for some time now. Brain seems fried. He's always come across as just bizarre in interviews and is a loose cannon. Nothing really can be done for him at this point other than having people look after and care for him as he ages. Financial idiocy, steroids, drugs, alcohol. Who knows. But he's a mess
  4. 2018 NFL Season

    http://www.espn.com/nfl/story/_/id/23582533/nfl-owners-approve-new-national-anthem-policy New policy requires players, personnel on the field to stand for anthem Kevin Seifert Dan GrazianoFacebook Messenger PintEmaATLANTA -- NFL owners have unanimously approved a new national anthem policy that requires players to stand if they are on the field during the performance but gives them the option to remain in the locker room if they prefer, it was announced Wednesday. The new policy subjects teams to a fine if a player or any other team personnel do not show appropriate respect for the anthem. That includes any attempt to sit or kneel, as dozens of players have done during the past two seasons. Those teams will also have the option to fine any team personnel, including players, for the infraction. "This season, all league and team personnel shall stand and show respect for the flag and the Anthem," NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said in a statement. "Personnel who choose not to stand for the Anthem may stay in the locker room until after the Anthem has been performed.

    It's like what did Sandy think was going to happen. He'd come here and magically find control? He is what he is. You can bring him into a situation with a man on 3rd 1 out and he'll strike out 2 guys. You can also bring him into a fairly comfortable lead and he'll throw 12 straight out of the zone and make the game a root canal The results you get from him are very Robles like.

    Reading the tea leaves with Reyes it's probably Fred or Jeff who loves him and is the one stopping anything from happening. I can't really explain it any other way. Selective accountability. Which of course isn't accountability at all. It's dysfunction. Sandy is not what he used to be but he understands that sometimes his hands are tied and it's not entirely his fault the situation is what it is (the whole "What outfield" quip. Well yea he's not allowed to spend the money to build a proper outfield. That's not ALL on you. But he also didn't cultivate the talent within the system to fill that outfield either. Maybe Reyes is teachers pet to the Wilpons, but Sandy didn't do his part with bolstering the team with the necessary talent so that Reyes doesn't have to play such a big role

    And the best game of his career game against Florida too as well. Complete game 1-0 shutout in front of 15 people at Marlins Park

    Nido is another one I'm sick of looking at. He's hitting .150. He has no business on an MLB roster right now

    I also think that Mac gets too much grief for the Hackenberg pick. Yes it was a reach but the upside was there. Opinions of him back then, there were plenty of negative, but he also had his believers and he had all the physical tools. Plus that second round after Hack was very weak other than Deion Jones. It's not like Pro Bowler after Pro Bowler went off the board after Hack. Now sure he could've traded the pick but this isn't quite as awful as folks are making it out to be. I mean we had Tampa taking Roberto Aguayo a bit later in that round.

    I'm thinking hopefully Bautista can turn back the clock just long enough until TJ Rivera comes back and then we can dump him. But they're projecting TJ will be out until July. Which may really mean August.

    Maybe that day is coming once Swarczak is healthy. But one of Matz/Vargas/Wheeler is not finishing the season in the starting rotation. Gsellman and Lugo have earned it
  12. New York Mets 2018 season thread

    If Reyes isn't hitting can he at least FIELD the damn ball competently. And lets's not let Wheeler off the hook either he had a terrible start to the inning. But nobody can pick anybody up on this team. What should've been a 1 run inning for Florida is now 3 thanks to a million hopper up the middle off the bat of Realmuto that somebody should have fielded

    ugh. You know this reeks of us signing Bobby Abreu on his last legs. I really don't want to go back to those days. You know for last years sell off, our returns were absolutely pitiful. Granted in their defense some of this was inevitable. I mean we have graduated a lot of guys in the past few years. Starting with Harvey and finally winding down with Rosario. So some drop off was expected. Plus it's not as if we got nothing out of it. I mean granted you want more but, an NL Pennant and World Series appearance plus a Wild Card Game. And hey we are over .500 this season though I don't have any faith in them. Not sure what the future holds but I think it will be more Omar than Sandy restocking the cupboards. He's just...better at it.

    Yea once Bridgewater proved that he can stand upright and throw a football it was curtains for Hackenberg. I'm surprised they got something for him. I thought he'd just end up getting cut.

    Correct. The AHL GM pretty much is there to implement whatever the NHL GM pleases and relay direction to the AHL coach as to what players they want to see more of, who's coming up/down. Ice time etc. Really he's a middle man/messenger with little or no control over player personnel.
