Mets : Mess

by @ 6:58 pm. Filed under Uncategorized

The Mets are losing players and games left and right. Zack Wheeler(Triceps) was placed on the DL after getting hit hard for 2,3 starts. Meanwhile, Asdrubal Cabrera, fresh of the DL, in an option year of his deal, does not want to play 2B and has requested a trade. For tonight he is playing 2B with Jose Reyes at SS. The Mets infield is a mess with 2 regulars out at 3B and 2B and an influx of youth is close with the Rosario-Smith era coming soon. And with the team falling out of any postseason contention, veterans like Jay Bruce(who I would resign), Addison Reed and Curtis Granderson could be moved. Jacob deGrom’s name hit the rumor lines today but that was more from another team, The Houston Astros. Mets GM Sandy Alderson will be very busy heading into the July 31st deadline.

Mets MASH

by @ 8:45 pm. Filed under Uncategorized

Well it is beginning to look like the 2017 New York Mets will not be able to compete for the postseason and the #1 reason is ….drum roll please….. #Injuries. Let me explain. Before today the following players where on the disabled list:

3B-Franchise face-captain David Wright(back,shoulder)

Ace pitcher Noah Syndergaard(shut down 4 more weeks, no throwing, lat muscle tear)

SS Asdrubal Cabrera(thumb)

All star closer Jeurys Familia(Throwing arm)

 

Before todays game, the team somehow lost 3 THREE players to the DL:

Pitcher Matt Harvey(scapula, out several weeks)

2B Neil Walker(torn hamstring)

RP Josh Smoker(elbow)

 

Then the game started and Juan Lagares made a Juan Lagares play…and broke his thumb.

 

Tonight I think it is obvious the team MVP should be trainer Ray Ramirez

I am a Terry Collins guy- although I wanted him fired and my life to end when he trusted Harvey in the 9th inning of game 5 of the World Series- and love him. But you feel for the man and what this has been like over the last several years with injuries. And its all areas– pitching, infielders, outfielders, young.,old. Just a cruel fate to a good baseball man. #LGM

Best win, Day of year

by @ 8:00 pm. Filed under Uncategorized

The Mets overcame a bad Matt Harvey outing and erupted for 5 runs in the 8th to rally from a 4-1 deficit and defeat the World Champion Chicago Cubs 9-4 Wednesday night. Homers by Curtis Granderson(Career #300) and Lucas Duda(3 run shot) led the charge as Harvey allowed back to back homers to open the game and another 2 shot in the 4th. #33 continues to be a mystery and headline grabber on a night where the Mets posted their best win of the 2017 campaign. Medically, Yoenis Cespedes(foot) should be Ok but 2b Neil Walker(leg) came up lame tonight and it looked bad. #Hamstring . The Mets are 30-34 and have looked better with the return of some starting pitchers–Steven Matz and Seth Lugo-as well as #52 Cespedes. .500 is the next hurdle. This team has played great ball in the last 2 second halves and is good when everyone is playing. The problem? That NEVER happens!!

 

Important side note here. I love my Mets and my alma mater, The University of Michigan. I am a big time fan of our baseball program and adopted the team and Coach Erik Bakich this year. Our set up guy #29 Mac Lozer became #MyGuy. Today the Mets took my buddy in the 33rd round. Living my dream. So proud of this guy. #LGM

Lost season?

by @ 8:21 am. Filed under Uncategorized

The Mets had a tough week but through no fault of their own, some how remain alive in the race for the final NL wildcard spot. The reason? Location, location,location. The National League and the NL East are very down and the Mets are a 20-10 month away from stealing the spot. The positives from this season? Michael Conforto is becoming a star, a top of the lineup stud. Wilmer Flores is rounding into an everyday player and Lucas Duda is hot. The entire pitching staff has regressed and has either been bad or hurt. Terry Collins has to tax the few pitchers he believes in and the look of wear and tear on his face is usually regarding the pitching staff. This is a crazy game and you would have gotten tremendous odds on the NY Mets having a bad pitching staff preseason. Bad might be polite. But with Both Steven Matz and Seth Lugo set to return this upcoming weekend, hope is on the horizon. This is very good offense(Tops in NL in May) and due to depth, Terry has defensive options for late game situations. THE METS ARE NOT DEAD. #LGM
