you really need to stop posting about first-inning leads

3 out, 10 to play.

Don't do this to me again.

Will probably need to win at least 8 out of the final 10, and get a lot of help, but there is a chance with CIN & MIA coming up.

Michael F Gill, Thursday, 19 September 2019 21:24 (three months ago) link

would have to sweep in Cincy I think

Had no idea there was a Mets hall of fame committee.

Ed Kranepool should be considered (Wright will get there eventually)

Michael F Gill, Tuesday, 24 September 2019 22:20 (three months ago) link

fwiw, much respect to the mets this year

they did some good things; they did some things that didn't work out. but they fuckin tried! extending degrom, letting alonso start on opening day, not trading syndergaard -- these are all good things! the deal with seattle doesn't look too great at the moment, but it was an effort to improve rather than purely dump salary. getting stroman was bold! they maybe *should* have traded wheeler at the deadline but it's awesome that they didn't.

41-25 in the second half is promising! mickey doesn't seem like a great manager, but the season has turned out a lot better than i thought it would three months ago

mookieproof, Tuesday, 24 September 2019 23:23 (three months ago) link

Well... Stroman had an answer to Cashman’s comments that he wouldn’t have been a “difference-maker”... I would have retweeted him but I have the honor of being one of the many baseball writers he has blocked online... pic.twitter.com/iQvDTXoVl6

If only they'd put Diaz on the IL with bubonic plague on August 1.

Kranepool IS in the Mets HOF, Gill, how could he not be? Had most of the career offensive leads until Wright came along.

Oh I meant they should consider retiring Kranepool’s number next, and then retire Wright’s after that.

Michael F Gill, Wednesday, 25 September 2019 01:55 (three months ago) link

I agree with a lot of what Mookie says upthread. Great turn around in the second half, wish they could have gotten it together faster. JD Davis has been a great find, and his frazzled post-game walk off speech was one of the highlights of the year for me. So many concerns about pitching going forward (aside from Degrom/Lugo/Wilson) but I am looking forward to seeing the young core of hitters develop for the next 3 or so years.

Michael F Gill, Wednesday, 25 September 2019 02:11 (three months ago) link

Right now the Mets are the dictionary definition of mediocre. They seem intent on losing all their remaining games, which would appropriately leave them at .500.

You can't "get it together" when you have the worst bullpen in the franchise's last 50 years.

(had no idea they came back to win last night)

I liked Ashley Docking's line on Stroman this morning (fair or unfair): "Retweeting his life away."

dear Howie Rose,

shut the motherfuck up, altecocker.

Will he also break Judge's whiff record? I know he got a golden sombrero a couple nights ago.

Pete Alonso’s grandfather, Pete, arrived to Ellis Island from Spain in the 1930s. Twenty miles away and nearly 90 years later, his grandson is the toast of New York tonight. @Mets @Pete_Alonso20 @MLBNetwork https://t.co/k8T4BggRmf

Name to watch if #Mets fire Callaway: Carlos Beltrán. Bi-lingual. Strong communicator. Played for #Mets from 2005 to ‘11. Interviewed for #Yankees’ job that went to Boone. One Mets exec, Allard Baird, was his GM with #Royals. Another, Omar Minaya, signed him when he was NYM GM.

I also endorse Beltrán

i grew to like callaway idk this move seems pointless

brodie shd try and get something, anything for yoenis, hes not gonna be worth 29.5M next year no way

seems like girardi would be a good choice, but i doubt the wilpons would pay him enough to make it worth dealing with them

why not just get bonilla to manage, they have to pay him anyway

k3vin k., Friday, 4 October 2019 12:31 (three months ago) link

theyre also paying david wright still ibelieve

prefer Ray Searage to the Vulture

anyway i can't be a hypocrite, i don't like these team threads getting bumped thru October (and beyond).

a Mets fan who gave up on everything in the mid '80s (Dr Morbius), Friday, 4 October 2019 17:48 (three months ago) link

but i will do it again

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

Twins’ bench coach Derek Shelton, apparently

he should hire wainwright as his pitching coach

The only Mets star who went on to manage them was Bud Harrelson, and that didn't work out too well, but I don't see this being a similar situation.

a Mets fan who gave up on everything in the mid '80s (Dr Morbius), Friday, 1 November 2019 19:29 (two months ago) link

rumor has it that he wants terry collins as his bench coach(!)

idk, seems kinda scary, but given that they're the mets they could have done a lot worse
