Adding to the Mets' tight turnaround between last night's game and this morning: Dominic Smith and one other Met were randomly drug tested late Wednesday. Smith didn't really have to pee, so he chugged water while his teammates waited close to an hour for him to do the deed.

Karl Malone, Sunday, 7 April 2019 16:30 (two weeks ago) Permalink

Twitter/reddit/sbnation fans are "out for blood" (Dicomo's words) because he's supposedly making bad bullpen / lineup moves, double switching, bunting in the wrong places. He's gambled a few times with using a reliever for a second inning and has gotten burned for a few runs, but it's kind of overblown because everyone in the bullpen has been struggling aside from Diaz. It's always pretty easy to Armchair GM using hindsight. Once a member of Panic City, always a member of Panic City though.

Michael F Gill, Monday, 8 April 2019 23:55 (one week ago) Permalink

i am familiar with the situation. when the manager is doing questionable things that aren't working out well, and it's tough to tell where the fault lies with the manager and where it's just weird baseball luck.

these are not all of the possible side effects (Karl Malone), Tuesday, 9 April 2019 00:10 (one week ago) Permalink

I'd argue that none of the questionable moves have directly ended up in a loss yet. Just stuff like, "we had a comfortable lead in the game, but then the reliever struggled and we had to use Diaz again and I CANT TAKE IT."

Michael F Gill, Tuesday, 9 April 2019 00:38 (one week ago) Permalink

I have not seen a game all the way thru yet, but the fan sites say Callaway is addicted to double switching.

If the Mets are not going to use Díaz here — when he’s clearly better than the other option, when he hasn’t pitched in three days, when the bases are loaded in a one-run game, when the heart of the opposing order is up, when it’s a division rival, when the pitcher’s spot in the order is a full nine batters away, when it’s literally the highest-leverage plate appearance of the Mets’ season to this point — then it’s fair to wonder when they will.

“He’s not going to get four outs,” manager Mickey Callaway said after the game. “He’s going to get three.”

Brandon Nimmo still has a ton of soreness in his neck. He took a muscle relaxer, but woke up with little range of motion -- about the same as yesterday.

Nimmo is almost certainly unavailable to pinch-hit today, but he doesn't think it's serious enough to warrant an IL stint.

I know everyone is naturally skeptical when it comes to injuries, and that reputation exists for a reason.

That said, everything I've heard today indicates this really is a minor issue for Jacob deGrom, at least as far as the Mets can tell pre-MRI. The concern level isn't high.
