  1. Was a bit worried last night with Peterson on the hill that things could get a bit out of control at 5-2 and Peterson hitting Flores, that he may let this game get out of hand and all of a sudden we're in a late night slugfest, but he got the double play, settled the game down, and the Mets offense had itself a night Lindor had his moment last night, but still...1-5. He's on pace for 96 rbi's but that average at sub .240, that's pretty ugly. McNeil is hitting, Alonso is up in the .280s which is rarified air I never thought he'd reach (and the 40 rbi's is pretty insane for May 24th). Yet Lindor still stumbles around the .230s and has for quite some time. Eduardo Escobar with a few hits last night...needed to see that. He hasn't been good with the bat all year and not much attention has been given to it with the team winning. But down the line when Alonso is slumping or McNeil goes a week where he can't get a hit, we may need someone like Escobar to pick things up. He hasn't done much all year
  2. We're roasting in an inferno here meanwhile out in Colorado it's snow postponements in late May Amazing that the Bartolo Colon rumors started up again. I mean he's what 48...49 years old. I think he did pitch last year in the Mexican league. Doubt he could do much in the pro's at this point as he was getting beat up pretty badly his final season in the bigs and that was four years ago. But seems like he's still hanging around waiting for a call
  3. One thing about the Mets is this year they have the manager, they have the division falling in their favor, and they do have the committed and dedicated owner with a full year under his belt ready to spend, and if need be, buy his way out of an injury rut. This is going to be a tough stretch to get through until one of Scherzer or deGrom is able to return. We've got 3 more games coming up in San Fran and the killer 10 game west coast swing (Dodgers/Padres/Angels) it's key that they don't fall into one of those 2 wins in 11 games type tailspins that have short circuited previous seasons. If they want to make a move to Montas then go out and get him early if you can. Hopefully have him by early June and that rough part of the sched. There are other stopgap types that we can look at...Drew Smyly, Zach Davies. I would certainly call the DBacks about Bumgarner.
  4. It's an oblique injury, which can really run the gamut in terms of how long a player is out for. I'd be surprised if we see him before the middle of June. As expected, the Mets starting staff being ravaged by injuries
  5. Hope it's not an oblique. Hefner says back "not that bad". How is that the least bit true...back related can be nothing, or it can start as nothing and snowball into a nightmare "It's so bad I need my teammates to tie my skates" After going through the Wright thing we really don't need to hear it's just his back it's not that bad I'm already mentally prepared for losing him for a month. Scherzer is a tough as nails guy and when he's on the mound giving the "cut, I'm done" gesture that's a very bad sign in my eyes.
  6. Matz is atrocious. They got a few homers but really should be beating him up more than that Not a good effort by Walker, as expected, but he didn't totally implode and give the game away like I expected. Mets still in this one. 5th inning we really need to get to Matz. Only 3 hits so far
  7. We had our chances. Esche, Rhodes, Boucher Made them look like Georges Vezina Bottom line is we can't turn a team over like the Rags. Panarin would never sign here. Adam Fox isn't going to muscle his way to the Devils like he did NYR.
  8. Rags down 3-1 and 2-0 in both game 5 and 6. Domingue being a not worthy of life awful sieve piece of excrement is what caused this. And they blow another late lead in 7 The amount of luck the Rags got this series is historic
  9. Jesse Winker huh? Shreve blows a 4-1 7th inning lead. Now let's see if the Mets can gut this out. Haven't had many L's like this this season so far
  10. A 3-0 lead against a dead Nats franchise and Megill is not even competitive. Did not belong on the mound today. He's been great so far so we have to excuse this...but this was look away humiliating bad. Hopefully it's just a blip on the radar and something isn't wrong with him Down 5 but facing a pitcher with a 9 era. Let's score some runs. Plenty of baseball left to be played.
  11. Those seem like pretty extreme totals, Braves I'm always wary about but 81-40 seems out of their realm. But I'm sure they'll have a 12 wins in 15 games type stretch sometime this summer. Phillies have thrown a lot of $ around of late trying to buy their way back to relevance, and they've built a pretty solid offense, but their pitching overall is below average...seems like they're destined for somewhere between 79-84 wins when it's all said and done. Unlike the old annoyingly clutch Charlie Manuel Phillies...this Phillies team always seems to come apart in a big spot
  12. Was far from a brilliant performance, but the Mets did what they had to do to scratch by a terrible Nats team. Corbin...who's 11-28 with a grotesque ERA over the past 3 seasons, held them to just 3 hits through 5. Frustrating to see...but they came alive in the middle innings
  13. and check out what loudmouth Stroman has done. 1-3 with an era over 5.00. And now on the IL Mets facing the awful Corbin today, this is a series to fatten up on.
  14. Did that just happen? I mean holy crap!! I was gonna give them a bit of a pass...hey eventually they were going to hit the skids a little bit you figure. Lose a few in a row (and it'll eventually happen) but to have such an improbably rally on the road...this is a memorable W and you've gotta figure the Phillies are absolutely shattered after a game like this
  15. In Scherzers last 18 regular season starts, his team is 18-0. In his last 15 regular season games where he got a win or loss decision...15-0 God I hope I didn't jinx him or the team. But Scherzers last regular season loss was May 30th, 2021
  16. Only 5 hits in his last 36 at bats. And just a single walk in that stretch too. He needs to pull out of it and fast before the narrative that the hot start was just a fluke and he's going to go the way of Alomar, Baerga etc begins
  17. Yesterday was a statement day. Coming off a rotten loss, the Mets absolutely snuffed the Braves offense out and asserted themselves as the best team in the NL East. When you have that kind of effort from the normally sketchy Carrasco...you have to be happy. Still would like to see more out of the offense, but offenses everywhere are pretty depressed.
  18. 5-1. How about not blowing this damn game
  19. And that's the way to do it. With Buck leading the way and Cohen at the helm there's a new air of professionalism, consistency with how the entire franchise operates top to bottom. Making the right decision, a hard one like this where you know it may bother some guys in the clubhouse short term(Lindor) but is good for the team long term. No chance Cano is dfa'd if this is still a Wilpon owned tean. Last year was chaotic as the last elements of the Wilpon circus had to be removed. This year we have real stability and direction.
  20. I know I shouldn't fall into this trap, but the 86 Mets 23 games in were 19-4. With how good this team has been so far...that team still had 3 more wins at the same juncture. For whatever reason I thought they were about neck and neck at the same point. Though it wasnt until late May that they really started to distance themself from the rest of the NL East. Only up 3 on Montreal. By mid June they were up double digits (11.5 on the Expos) and were gone. The rest of the division pretty much knew it too This Braves series coming up, Atlanta has lost 2 in a row...I want to see the Mets drop a hammer on them like they did St. Louis early in 86, that 4 game sweep at Busch. Being 8 up when this series ends would be fantastic...but being 10 up would really send a message to the Braves, the division, and the entire league
  21. So god damn sick of looking at Schwarber. It hurts less though when you win They tagged Scherzer a bit in this one, wasn't his usual dominant self...but the Phillies do have some hitters so this will happen from time to time. Still got through 6 and K'd 9. Got the W since our offense showed up Now the real test begins with the Braves coming in
  22. I like the Hall pick. Absolutely the best back in the draft, though not a guy who really blows me away as a star type. Just seems solid, efficient...with great vision and a nose for the endzone. I was kinda wanting a LB or OT in the Hall and Ruckert slots, but they did just nab an OT in Max Mitchell Ruckert I want to get into a bit more, great story with him growing up a Jets fan now he can live out the misery in person. I just felt with the 2 guys we got, maybe it wouldve been more produnt getting the best Center prospect still on the board. Or another o lineman. I'm still not totally sold on our offensive line...a lot hinges on what happens with Becton
  23. They always seem to find the guys they need though. NE marches to their own drummer in these drafts, and they'd rather have the volume later and deep. They got Duggar and Uche (played well until getting hurt) Onwenu is a nice find late. This is going back to 2020. They also sometimes take guys they want to coach up for a year before giving them bigger roles on the team. Patriots are not going to be a big name sexy draft darling the day of it, but then you go back years later and see...well they loaded up in 3-4-5 with picks and wow, they got 3 good starters there. There will be busts of course but they seem confident in their ability to hit within the rounds where only the true draftniks are watching
  24. And you hear a lot of Mets haters trying to marginalize it...a not hitter is still a no hitter. It's incredibly hard to hold a team to 0 hits over 9 I've always hated how people brought up the Beltran missed call during Johans and tried to invalidate it. As if it's the only missed call during a no hitter or perfect game. Should we pick those apart and invalidate them all? No...seems like they only want to take away the Mets one
