From the Hall of Fame: Tom Seaver's family announced today that he has been diagnosed with dementia. Tom will continue to work in his beloved vineyard at his California home, but has chosen to completely retire from public life.

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.

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?

hes fine

johnny crunch, Saturday, 6 April 2019 21:39 (five 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 (five 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 (five 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 (five 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 (five 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 (five 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.

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

Marginally better OBP? My memory of his defense is definitely clouded by his postseason performance last year though.

Michael F Gill, Sunday, 1 September 2019 22:41 (two weeks ago) link

What I'm saying is that a higher average is null if the other player both has a higher OBP and slugging.

Grandal has been excellent this season at defensive catching (he always is).

I will admit: I thought the combination of the Cubs sweeping the Mets and the Nationals engineering that 11-10 comeback last week basically ended the Mets' season.

I was wrong. The Mets are alive and well. It's the team that won't die.

Michael F Gill, Thursday, 12 September 2019 19:16 (one week ago) link

Getting swept in Miami didn’t end the season. Falling 11 games under .500 didn’t end the season. Neither did losing six straight at home, nor blowing a six-run lead in the ninth.

Improbably, inexplicably, incredibly, the Mets are contenders.
