2021 New York Mets season thread


Recommended Posts

Well at least even the Mets can't find a way to waste a deGrom start during a rainout.  This has been one of the most disjointed Aprils that I can ever remember...probably THE most.  It feels like the Mets have barely played.

And two things I really don't like: Starting extra innings with a man on second. 7-inning doubleheaders.  

The traditionalist in me despises it as well. Heck most baseball purists (and non purists) do There is a way to shorten these games and still not mess with things that are sacred and resort to gi

Yeah I get being cautious, but at the same time it feels like the Mets got screwed here...if MLB wants to play a 162-game sched, then accept that in the current environment, teams are occasionally hav

What festered under the Wilpons was more rotten than we can never imagine

Just flush out the $hit and let's move on. These clowns are no longer owning the team or running day operations. Cohen is investigating what went on...what kind of culture existed here. These stories cropping up are irritating but it's important to make known that the current leadership of the franchise is trying to fix things (and they've made missteps of their own)

Sandy though...gotta wonder how much of this he turned a blind eye to

I don't know what it is about Sandy...but he's just one of those guys that every time he thinks he's explaining something, he just was a way of making things sound even worse.  He comes off as very "Get over it" and "This will all go away" in some of his past dealings...almost like he's shrugging his shoulders at times and asking "Whaaaaat?"  I don't think he thought some of this stuff was a big deal at the time, and likely still doesn't, but is struggling to put himself in the shoes of these women.

Yeah I get the feeling he'll step down in time...not strictly because of all of this, but it will definitely be a factor whenever he "Looks forward to the next chapter of his life."

Might not be the worst thing in the world. 7 inning doubleheader’s are dumb but at least it’s a huge advantage for the Mets with solid starters and avoiding the pen. 
 

Also, some of the games are getting bumped back - hopefully Syndergaard will be back for a few of them.

re: Sandy, I’ve probably said this before but while he’s obviously got high personal integrity and I don’t believe would do any of the stuff that all these other cretins did, I’m also not surprised that old school guys like him and Terry Francona (who doesn’t get thrown in the mix enough with the Callaway crap) take a ‘boys will be boys’ approach toward a lot of this stuff and don’t have the urgency in reacting to it or put quite the importance on it that our more attuned sensibilities demand everyone does in 2021.

Well said Has...I think that’s it....regardless how I feel about Sandy the front office exec, I don’t think in a million years he’d ever be guilty of sexual harassment himself.  But even now I don’t think he’s capable of realizing how these incidents are viewed by most in 2021...he’s simply too old school to adjust his thinking.

Glad they gutted out a W for deGrom yesterday. Would've been an embarrassment otherwise. Even as things stand the lack of support he gets is just...seems like it shouldn't be statistically possible

Mets Offense needs to pick things up...but just glancing around the majors, seems like pitching is dominating things early

All things considered, impossible not to be happy with 7-4 to start the season.  Especially since the team is clearly not firing on all cylinders yet.

Stroman not pitching like Stroman so far...not a guy known for limiting baserunners.

Defense is going to be a problem.  Sandy doesn’t think it’s a priority.  Never did.

Oh and this umpire has sucked ass tonight.  Good on Luis for letting him know it.

And already we’re at our first crisis point with Lindor, under .200 still after an off year last year. At least I feel more confident any bad contract won’t stop Cohen from paying the next guy but I hope to heck we actually are getting vintage Lindor for a few years at least.
