I knew he was unwell, per Art Shamsky at January's SABR NY meeting.

Sad. Hope he feels some enjoyment from working the vineyards.

Just heard about this yesterday from a friend. Bench was my first favourite player, he--thanks to this dime-store biography--was my first favourite pitcher.

Luis Guillorme has earned a roster spot as a utility infielder in a surprise move that sent Adeiny Hechavarria packing. Hallelujah, cuz Aunt Daisy can outhit Adeiny.

I watched the 8th inning in a bar -- which took forever -- and I had no idea who the Davis who knocked in 2 runs was, except he wasn't Chili or Ike.

Glad I missed the Lugo excitement.

He was recently hit in the hands by a fastball which will do that to ya...

Jersey Al (Albert R. Broccoli), Thursday, 4 April 2019 20:54 (ten months ago) link

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.

morbs/mgill/jcrunch how do you feel about mickey as a manager?

mookieproof, Saturday, 6 April 2019 21:16 (ten months ago) link

hes fine

johnny crunch, Saturday, 6 April 2019 21:39 (ten months ago) link

I think he's fine too. All the mets twitter/reddit/etc I've seen has been awfully harsh considering how things have gone so far.

Michael F Gill, Saturday, 6 April 2019 22:43 (ten months ago) link

how do you feel about mickey as a manager?

what questionable things has he done so far? i haven't been following closely

Karl Malone, Sunday, 7 April 2019 16:30 (ten months ago) link

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 (ten months ago) link

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 (ten months ago) link

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 (ten months ago) link

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

Looks like Alonso is making the case for more bench time.

Ahead of tonight’s game, the Mets have announced that they have recalled Corey Oswalt from Triple-A Syracuse and optioned Tim Peterson.

I assume Shelton is not the guy who made Bull Durham

Hearing Carlos Beltran is very serious candidate for Mets manager. Has close relationship w/key FO guys Allard Baird and Omar Minaya, both said to support. @Ken_Rosenthal 1st linked CB to job. Interestingly, 3/4 known candidates have no MLB managing experience; also Bell, Shelton
