  • 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 (four 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.

Is Lindor Jason Bay 2.0? It's still early (it better be), but damn, he is lost.

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

God, just saw Pillar in the dugout tonight and cringed. Looks brutal and glad he seems ok (aside from nasal fractures).

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

'i love lindor but nevertheless i must bury him'

too soon

mookieproof, Wednesday, 19 May 2021 05:16 (four 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.

Someone send help.

Karl Malone, Friday, 21 May 2021 15:35 (four 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.

Vin Jawn (PBKR), Tuesday, 1 June 2021 11:25 (three months ago) link

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 (three 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 (three 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!

this team has the third-highest payroll in the majors and they've shit the fucking bed. pillar is a replacement-level asshole and baez will be gone in five weeks because he has a career .302 OBP

lindor needs to wake the fuck up though. this entire city was dying to love him and then he hit .224/.317/.370. i'm sure it sucks being booed, but play better

Looked like it was on its way to happening, but they got 5 runs in the 9th inning to walk it off, with Baez scoring the winning run. Gary Cohen's voice cracked/jumped an octave during the final call. Apparently their first four-run ninth inning comeback in 10 years. Ya gotta believe?

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

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.
