Man does Clip seem hittable right now. At least TC is going with his best and not leaving the game in Clip's hands.

Benitez could be an absolute beast for weeks at a time, but man when the stakes got higher...goddamn. You could see the change on his face.

Well it took 12 years but that...to me...was the first real clutch hit of David Wrights career. And I mean that without a hint of condescension. It was a huge hit!  I was expecting a swing and a miss at a slider outside but he smacked a fastball back up the middle and it was all the Mets needed

 

what can you say...deGrom did the job matching zeros with Kershaw (who was way WAY better than his final stat line) and the Mets ran Kershaws pitch count high enough to bring in a reliever that they at least had a chance at doing something against.

 

What a HR by Murphy. For a lefty to take Clayton out like that is just spectacular.

 

In a 5 game series there is no such thing as house money, so can't be too hard on them if they lose tomorrow.

 

And Michael Cuddyer. Wow...what a disgusting train wreck in that outfield (and useless at the plate) So fortunate he didn't cost us.

Great job by DeGrom. The Mets real ace and a pitcher easy to like unlike Mr. Ego. Quite a performance by a legit ace. The Mets did a great job in that 7th taking pitches against Kershaw who got tired forcing Mattingly to make the decision he didn't want to. I'm happy for Wright. He deserves it.

One guy seems to be very easy-going and extremely down-to-earth (but still competitive as hell) and never ever gets embroiled in drama and nonsense...and oh yeah, he's also very very good. The other guy seems to be all about himself, almost acts like the Mets are just a temporary stop until bigger and better opportunitie$ open up, and seems to love every last celebrity trapping to an almost ingratiating degree. And his agent, though one of the very best at what he does, is an extremely annoying douchebag. Not hard to see who fans are going to warm up to.

But let's face it, in this market as much as any other, all people care about is results. What Harvey has really done with the innings crap and the missed practice and general lack of Everyman appeal is lose any benefit of the doubt he might've gotten with the fans if he struggles. If he stinks it up at home in Game 3, he's getting booed mercilessly (deGrom wouldn't). He pitches well and the fans will let the other crap go. But it's like I said, for the foreseeable future, deGrom will get a lot of leeway with this fanbase. Harvey won't.

Speaking of Harvey, someone needs to remind Bora$$ that the player works for the team, not the other way around.  Making it sound like Harvey selflessly gave his arm to the team when he got hurt, oy vey :rolleyes:

Speaking before the Mets began the NLDS in Los Angeles on Friday, agent Scott Boras told reporters that pitcher Matt Harvey “pitched until he didn’t have a ligament” in 2013.

“Matt Harvey gave his arm” during that season, he said. “He’s the kind of guy, he wants his team to do well, he wants them to win. And you have seen what he has done.”

Just stop talking Scott.  No one wants to hear from you.  About anything.

DeGrom > Harvey. I'm actually starting to think the Mets would be better off dealing him for a kings ransom and ridding themselves of his BS.

 

Really depends on what they get back.  Harvey is young and will still be relatively cheap for a couple more years (his first arb year is this offseason, which means the raises start coming).  Keep in mind that the AAA cupboard is pretty bare at the moment...and that Colon probably isn't getting re-signed.  And Wheeler (who's not really a sure thing anyway) isn't due back until June-July. 

 

So basically, you've got deGrom, Syndergaard, Matz, Niese (assuming he's not dealt), and...Verrett?  Bowman?  Their closest "next wave" starting pitching prospect in Michael Fulmer was dealt for Cespedes (though to be fair, opinions on Fulmer vary...some think he'll ultimately become a reliever in the majors).  Does Sandy try to sign a 4th-5th starter-type from outside the organization?  Harvey can be annoying and unlikable, but this is one of those deals that can't be bungled...they've gotta get some good loot back, and guys that will help them immediately.
