Posted this in the 100,000 post thread.  I know, I know, Harvey is the Dark Knight, not Iron Man.  Still, pretty sweet.  Big Fat Bartolo makes it damn near perfect.

Syndergaard is Thor.

Vs. Lackey, this is a game they can win.

 

I expect to lose the rest :)

 

How about Thor the other night?  1 hitter in his first win ever?

As gary cohen pointed out, the Mets have  won and lost based on how they hit with RISP.

 

During the past two days, they have done a much better job of it.

Harvey counting the days until his free agency.

 

He will win multiple CY Youngs, MVP's, World Series and he'll go into the Hall....and he'll do it all cross town.

What's up with these stupid Mets uni's.

 

If you cannot play like a professional baseball team atleast dress like one. It's like they want to camouflage the fact that it was not washed for 3 months.

So that was fun while it lasted.  It was only a matter of time before the Nats caught up (my World Series pick). 

 

So terrible.  I dont even think a Wild Card is achievable with this team's offense.

We should just have deGromm pitch all the home games and Harvey pitch all the away games and then Big Sexy can be the jolly third guy.

Military Mondays. Started last year actually. They pair up with Wounded Warrior for every Monday home game to give vets free tickets and the unis are to raise awareness for community outreach events.

Yeah. San Diego does it for Sundays and opening day. Theirs is a little different though because it's 50% off for all home games. I assume that they don't do free tickets because the military populace is too great with the Navy and Marine bases there.

What's the likelihood we could trade Steven Matz for, say, Starlin Castro?  Or is this the stupidest idea ever?  Is Gato going to punch me for this suggestion?

Gato would want Harvey, DeGrom and Plawecki for Castro.

 

He throws out the most unreasonable trades.

 

That said I would do Syndergaard and Plawecki for Castro. 

 

The Cubs are loaded at middle IF, and will need to break that logjam sometime. Castro is young, and is on a reasonable deal. The only thing that bothers me about Castro is that he sometimes turns into David Murpy with dumb plays and out of nowhere botches of routine ball. I think he is a gamer though.

 

I imagine the Cubs would rather have Syndergaard than Matz, as he is more mlb ready

I don't really think Castro is big upgrade over Wilmer.  He's not good defensively and isn't the hitter that some people think he is.

It's pretty incredible that we lost Wheeler for the year and can still afford to move a pitcher. It's not ideal, of course, but it says a lot about the depth of the farm system right now.

Harvey's pissed about moving to a six man rotation. What's the o/u on when his agent starts floating trade demands? August 2nd?

David Wright has spinal stenosis. So, it's officially The Daniel Murphy Era.

I am sure Fred and Jeff have already been talking to the suits about insurance money.

Please sell the team.

The thing that sucks most about this is we still don't know sh*t about backs. He could be fine next week or his career could be over. The spine is a cruel, cruel bitch.

Everything had to go right offensively this year and they just are not getting enough out of Cuddyer, Granderson or Duda.  Need a legit proven big bat.

I think to get enough offense to make them contenders the Mets would have to give up too much. In my opinion it's not worth it. No matter what happens this year, we are still a year or two away. The streak showed our potential but a combination of injuries and a few guys just being too young have exposed what we're dealing with. We may very well make a playoff push, but this is not a championship team. We do, however, have the makings of one as long as we are patient.

The pitching is set. Pieces are in place offensively and guys will be coming up over time. Play the course, don't give up assets, and kill it in free agency over the next two years so that we can build a sustained winner.

Most importantly, DO NOT wear out the young pitchers. It is so crucial that we don't **** around and play it as safe as possible. The future of the franchise depends on these guys.

Matz pitched another gem last night at Vegas. Parnell and Black both one clean inning at Binghamton. Black is getting closer to returning

So, should we find a way to get Thor on the field every night for his bat?  3-3 with probably the longest bomb of the year. 

 

Oh yeah, he pitched well too.
