2019 New York Mets Season Thread

Just jettison Familia into the sun. He is just pure excrement at this point. Totally hopeless and incapable of pitching in any sort of situation

Didn’t take long for our killer pen to blow this.  Sure Brodie, keep telling yourself that things will get better...fvcking snake oil salesmen piece of sh!t.  Enjoy your only GM gig while it lasts pal.

Someone should check Alonso’s bats for TNT.  Insane how HRs just explode off his bat.

It almost looked foul. But to take it over a foul pole is extremely difficult even with it being shorter down the lines. To get that kind of height and distance while being a bit out front of the ball. Just an absolute rocket launch

Yeah that ball had an absurd amount of air underneath it...looked like a HR Strawberry would hit (though of course Straw would’ve gone to RF).

Huge that the Mets managed to hold the Nats to five runs...could’ve been a lot worse.

Well finally they're showing a pulse again...maybe hitting rock bottom in Miami helped in the long run.  Or maybe this'll just be another blip.  They definitely need at worst five out of seven this week and go from there.

And I’m sorry but it would nice if some of these Latino players could be bothered to learn English.  You’re playing baseball in this country how many months a year?

The Mets actually managed to trade Keon Broxton lol...to the Orioles for 500k in international pool money.  Let him hit .220 with 20 HR's and 20 steals there with a .250 OBP, not like they have anything better.

What's sad is that BVW gave up friggin' THREE bodies for that guy!  Between that and the Cano deal, man is BVW looking like he has the potential to be a truly memorably inept and incompetent GM...the kind we'll talk about long after he's gone...as in, the Stump Merrill of GMs. 

BUT, one can't help but wonder how much Jeffy was involved in those deals.  And if we'll ever truly know how much responsibility will lay at either man's feet. 

And yeah, Broxton is the kind of guy who is STRICTLY bad team fodder...the kind of guy who maybe hits 15-20 HR (but hits under .200 and strikes out a gazillion times) for a team guaranteed to win less than 70 games.  The point being that you have NO business bringing a guy like in and then challenging the rest of your division to "Come and get us!"  Contending teams don't bring in stiffs like him. 

The ONE thing I'll say that's positive about BVW is at least it looks like he won't Sandy his way into giving zilches endless chances.  That doesn't explain why Mickey's still here, but it wouldn't have been too farfetched to have expected a guy like Broxton (and d'Arnaud) to get friggin' Reyes and Largares-type seemingly endless opportunities, which we know all too well was the norm with Rip Van Sandy. 

 

And speaking of d'Arnaud, I didn't even realize that his Dodger career amounted to one AB...he's since moved on to the Rays, and he ain't hittin' there either...now has a season OPS of .219.  Looks like he might just about be finished, at the age of 30...with the equivalent of just over 2.5 seasons worth of games played...he may not even reach 500 GP for his career.  There was definitely potential when he first came up, but his play behind plate diminished as his career went on, and outside of 2015 he just never really hit enough...and of course, could NEVER stay healthy.  Guess there might have been a reason why he was traded twice as a prospect (though it was in deals for pretty successful players each time).

Haha yeah I forgot about the fact we actually traded for Broxton in the first place...yikes.  God help us if any of those players actually turn out to be anything.  Brodie certainly showed he was willing to take a blowtorch to the farm system that was here, ironically it's guys like Alonso and McNeil who have saved the Mets from being a total dumpster fire to only being a partial one.

At least BVW realized his mistake with Broxton quickly and didn't let him linger here after May. Though this whole era has stumbled getting out of the gate. Broxton, Familia, Cano, Jed Lowrie. Yuck

At least JD Davis looks to be a decent find

Again Mickey...why does Cano get to bat third every game with absolute impunity?!  You can’t drop him until he actually shows signs of maybe not sucking?

Well the rash of injuries we all feared hit. Conforto (who is making good progress supposedly) is out. Nimmo is out. Cano is out now. deGrom has a personal catcher now. Lowrie who knows at this point. Hechevarria is going to get into games now at 2b now. It's ugly

You just knew Cano was gonna get hurt the minute he deigned to run hard.  That's just typical lolMets.

Big point in the game and you've got Lagares and Nido up with an umpire who is giving Scherzer an extra wide strikezone. No chance

Yeah you can’t make much of a case for those two (and Gómez, who actually had a hell of an AB) being in the lineup at the same time.  There’s just no chance, especially against a guy like Scherzer.

I know Alonso has hit a lot of dingers, but it’s really been all-or-nothing for him for a while now.  BA is really sinking, and the Ks are going up in a hurry.  Really wish someone would teach these guys to put the fvcking ball in play.

deGrom did his job. Guess you can sort of wish he went 7 but 6 innings 1 run...2 hits. Outstanding. But Scherzer against this sorry group forget it...maybe we have a chance against their pen but we were never getting a run vs. Scherzer

Maybe in time it will happen as he matures at the major league level. Certainly he could end up another Mark Reynolds in the middle part of his career. And he'll have some years where he's close to 200k's too. I just hope he rounds into more of a .250 guy rather thank a Kingman type. But the HR's will always be there.
