  • degrom hit 102 last night
  • meet the new bullpen
  • jeff mcneil also thinks the vax is a personal decision; talk to him, alonso
  • guillorme's throw was bad, but mccann still should have caught it
  • missed keith going 'mmm'
  • wish i didn't have to watch them on my computer using a vpn

been making me a tinge sad that morbs will never get to see lindor in a mets jersey, but i appreciate them remaining a continued source of amusement. keep it up boys

Painfully familiar indeed. Only the Mets would lose to a very depleted Phillies lineup by way of a wild pitch strikeout of the pitcher that ending up scoring the 2 decisive runs.

Michael F Gill, Saturday, 1 May 2021 02:46 (eight months ago) link

Alvarado and Hoskins trying to start brawls with Smith and Castro was the insult on top of the cake, even had Ron Darling wishing the Mets would have given to the rage.

Deicide at Chuck E. Cheese (PBKR), Monday, 17 May 2021 23:46 (eight months ago) link

He's walking a good amount and not striking out much. He rates pretty well in exit velocity and barrels. I think he'll figure it out but it's definitely been rough.

reggae mike love (polyphonic), Tuesday, 18 May 2021 00:23 (eight months ago) link

I also feel there is something about coming to the NY market that is a shift. But yeah, he hasn't hit well so far. His defense has been good though.

Michael F Gill, Tuesday, 18 May 2021 01:35 (eight months ago) link

i love lindor and even tho he's a met i still have a hard time rooting for him to fail, but his slash numbers have been pretty concerning for a bit now even dating back to last season. his SLG percentage has fallen off a cliff and if he's not providing elite power at that position he's kinda just... a high AVG/low OBP shortstop getting into his 30s... it feels pretty dicey to me longterm. they really need him to be an MVP level player for the next 4-5 years because the back half of that contract is gonna be ugly given the type of player he is

J0rdan S., Wednesday, 19 May 2021 05:12 (eight months ago) link

'i love lindor but nevertheless i must bury him'

mookieproof, Wednesday, 19 May 2021 05:16 (eight months ago) link

Over the last ten games he is batting .278/.341/.500, 132 wrc+

More or less, that’s the slash line of his best batting season.

Karl Malone, Friday, 21 May 2021 15:35 (seven months ago) link

deGrom needs his own thread:

ERA 0.71 IP 51.0 SO 82 WHIP 0.57

He is 9-for-20 at the plate this season, and he’s allowed only 22 hits in 51 innings on the mound. Put it another way:

Jacob deGrom's season:
4 runs, 3 RBI as a hitter (9-for-20, .450)
4 runs allowed in 51 innings as a pitcher.

deGrom is going to do what Kluber and Donaldson looked like they might do (but almost certainly won't now): get into the HOF on an astounding peak value after the age of 27.

clemenza, Tuesday, 1 June 2021 15:23 (seven months ago) link

He still needs to play 3 more years to be eligible, and may need a Cy young / no hitter / post season heroics along the way to really seal the deal. But he is definitely on the path.

Michael F Gill, Tuesday, 1 June 2021 15:50 (seven months ago) link

You think he needs another cy young?! He could tread water the next three years and I think he’d skate into the hall no problem.
I don’t like his odds of playoffs heroics with the Mets!

Michael F Gill, Monday, 13 September 2021 21:05 (four months ago) link

i'm very excited to listen to the mets broadcast crew today for a couple reasons. first, they're great, and i'm keith hernandez. but more importantly, i figure they will either not talk much at all about the thumbs down stuff, or talk about it briefly or in passing or something. the cardinals announcing team, whoever it is, will talk about it at length and find a way to spend an inning or two on it during each game of the series. somehow, they will have terrible opinions about it, and if jim edmonds is on, he'll have a just bonkers opinions of some sort and will then dan mclaughlin will start to apologize to him for disagreeing but stress that the facts are facts. at this, edmonds will double down and assert his opinion as the truth.

meanwhile over in the mets broadcast they appear to be enjoying a baseball game

"HYYOOOOOOONK!" is the sound I make (Karl Malone), Monday, 13 September 2021 23:42 (four months ago) link

for those not catching this game, so far the home plate ump called a pitch thrown near the middle of the zone a ball, the third base umpire called a ball that was at least 6-7 feet fair a foul ball, and the first base umpire's right cheek was smashed by an errant through by SS edmundo sosa. the umpire's attention was completely focused on first base, so he didn't see it coming at all.

i am worried about the final umpire at 2B.

i'm not against 'moving on from' (hate this euphemism) luis rojas but why in the fuck is sandy alderson still in charge of anything? the mets have gone 817-863 (.486) and made the playoffs twice in 11 seasons since his involvement with them began, and he's seemingly incapable of hiring people who aren't sexual predators

i don't like tlr either but he's at least won some other shit since the 1989 world series

Michael F Gill, Tuesday, 5 October 2021 04:03 (three months ago) link

Cohen can only do so much.

I feel like he could stand to do a bit less. All he needs to do is shut up, hire Epstein, and open his wallet.

I meant Cohen can only do so much to inspire confidence, but I also agree he should not be on Twitter and yes, Epstein would be ideal.

The Boyland rumor may have actually been made up, but as long as someone can get a lolmets out of it, it’s worth it.

Michael F Gill, Tuesday, 19 October 2021 14:17 (three months ago) link

The Mets have already been turned down by a handful of targets in their search for a new baseball operations head. Each of Theo Epstein, Billy Beane, David Stearns, Matt Arnold, Scott Harris and Brandon Gomes had been raised as potential candidates only to later be ruled out of consideration.

Cardinals general manager Michael Girsch can be added to that list, as Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports (Twitter link) that New York reached out to the Cards for permission to speak with him last week. Girsch, however, declined to pursue the opportunity, electing to remain in St. Louis instead.

girsch is pretty much a no name in st louis, for what it's worth. so good move to be turned down by him?

is this press (mlb trade rumors) right that the dynamic is these various candidates turning them down? if so, yikes
