wish that were bonding by actually hanging trump jr, instead went shark fishing w him

While Trump Jr. was kicking back and catching sharks Friday, the President and Melania Trump were in the same state at a Broward County hospital visiting victims of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting that left 17 people dead.

you go, daily news

I liked the Mets getting Adrian Gonzales for not much money. I've always thought he was a pretty good all around hitter and I think if his back will hold up, I'd think he might have another productive year in him.
With having Todd Frazier and Michael Conforto, they should have options to spell him 1-2 days a week and play some lineup match up. I got to figure Jay Bruce is going to also see more games at first as his career goes on too.

This year will likely be a merry go round of starting pitchers going back and forth from AAA to the #5 starter spot. You've got Lugo, Matz, Wheeler, and Gsellman, who have all seemed worthy at some time, but have never put it together consistently. Will be interesting to see how it shakes out.

MFG, in the modern age of pitcher injury/usage, that describes most rotations over the course of the season (at best, having 7+ guys make 10 or more starts).

could use a sturdier table for these pressers Mike

Rhine Jive Click Bait (Hadrian VIII), Tuesday, 6 March 2018 20:52 (one year ago) link

that includes minor league pitchers as well.

...Including De Leon (who hasn’t actually undergone the procedure yet), the Rays’ total of 10 surgeries in that span is the majors’ lowest, less than one-third that of the MLB-leading Mets — who, to be fair, haven’t had a pitcher above A-ball suffer that fate since 2015. Even so, using the start of 2016 as a cutoff, the Mets organization’s six TJs, though all from the low minors, place them third among the 30 teams, behind the Giants’ eight and the Reds’ seven. No other team has more than three, which is where the Rays will sit once De Leon goes under the knife.

that is crazy

Rhine Jive Click Bait (Hadrian VIII), Saturday, 10 March 2018 17:53 (one year ago) link

Yoenis Cespedes says his right wrist injury occurred while swinging in last Tuesday's game, one week ago. He's played three times since then, but underwent x-rays this morning. The Mets cut off his interview after 90 seconds so there's no additional info right now.

also david wright has died again

mookieproof, Tuesday, 13 March 2018 16:24 (one year ago) link

Yeah the news on Wright is upsetting. 8 more weeks of non baseball activity.

I think Cespedes will be fine? Also Nimmo has been really good this spring, may be hard to send him back down to AAA when Conforto is back. If 1B is not working out, could shift Bruce over there.

Michael F Gill, Tuesday, 13 March 2018 17:09 (one year ago) link

If they put Montero on waivers, would anyone else want him? Same with Robles. Kind of feel the Mets should risk it, it seems like every other pitcher in the running has been better/more auspicious than them this spring.

Michael F Gill, Thursday, 15 March 2018 17:51 (one year ago) link

wouldn't really call that a 'risk'. he's 27 and terrible and there's nothing to be gained by wasting a 25-man roster spot on him in the hopes that he someday figures it out

I don’t think it’s an accident that Mark Shapiro — a man who has shown that he is an expert at not spending money on baseball players while not catching much hell for it — is a top candidate for the Mets GM position. Indeed, I can think of no one more appropriate for the job.

Going to the game today at Fenway. There are tons of Mets fans everywhere. Too bad we drew Oswalt pitching instead of anyone else, but I’m hopeful it won’t be a blowout. They haven’t played in Boston since 2009.

Noah Syndergaard throws a four-hitter in Game 162. The Mets won consecutive 1-0 games over the Marlins to end things.

They went 31-20 over their last 51 games -- a bandage over a bullet hole, perhaps, but enough for the Mets to enter the offseason with optimism.

CARLSBAD, Calif. -- New York Mets minor leaguer Tim Tebow has earned a promotion to Triple-A Syracuse.

The 2007 Heisman Trophy winner and former NFL quarterback hit .273 with six homers and 36 RBIs in 84 games this year for Double-A Binghamton. His season was cut short by a broken hamate bone in his right hand, which required surgery July 24.

"Timmy is not a guy you want to put restraints on," new Mets general manager Brodie Van Wagenen said Wednesday. "If he sees a block, he's going to work that much harder to go overcome whatever somebody places on him. I believe in him."

Before he was hired by the Mets last week, Van Wagenen worked at CAA Baseball and represented the 31-year-old outfielder.

Tebow hit .301 in June for Binghamton and .340 in 15 games in July.

"Given the hamate injury he had last year, his momentum was stopped," Van Wagenen said. "The goal is if he can pick that up in spring training and hopefully get off to a good start in Syracuse, then we'll evaluate it when he's ready."

Tebow signed with Mets in late 2016, played in the Arizona Fall League and in 2017 hit .226 with eight homers and 52 RBIs in 126 games at two levels of Class A. He played in seven games for the Mets in spring training this year, hitting .056 (1-for-18).
