P.S. For the second time in my life an all-time great playoff catch made by a Met will now be rendered forgotten because they lost the game.

Blah blah....fuheggitaboutit   We have like three or four 1st baseman and Dominic Smith looming. The resources for outside help go everywhere but there. Throwing out a bunch of alphabet lett

Alderson saying today that Rosario is untouchable. Interesting for 2 reasons:

- It means that they view him as the best of their stable which is actually very deep at SS right now.

- I wonder if it means they are considering moving Cecchini in any major trade they make.

Last night might have been the depressing baseball game I've ever watched.  lol

Up 4-0 with Thor, I'm like, he's got this.  Then watching the Nats smack him around the entire field while stealing every base by basically walking was just the most damn depressing thing I've ever seen.

Meanwhile the Marlins take 3/4 from the Cubs to pass us in the standings.  Ugh.

This is turning into a disaster season.  The team just stinks.  Nice pitching staff, completely underachieving at this point but everyone else sucks.  Flat out.  Not one bat over .300.

And I know Loney has a nice glove on the bag but for christ sake, can someone tell him there is gap between him and 2nd that he needs to be covered?  I mean for **** sake, Thor isnt going to 1st and you're basically giving 2nd away for free with a runner on first, so protect the ******* gap!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

arrrggggggggggggggggggg h8 this team

This team is out right terrible.  Literally, teams around the league target the Mets for calling up young pitchers and it's an incredible strategy because this line up is straight up pathetic.  A ******* clown show and impossible to watch.  No heart, whatsoever.

They'll be below .500 before the all-star break. 100% guaranteed.

I think you missed my point.

Weak lineup..... we need to make some moves.

Unfortunately by the time we hit the All Star break we could be 8-10 games behind...at which point we should be sellers and not buyers....Time to load up the farm system via trades of Harvey, Blevins, Reed, Cespedes, Cabrera, and Walker..

 

I believe all of us and management over-estimated the talent of this team.  Realistically the Nats handed us the division last year and Murphy was the only reason we made it to the world Series, we need substantial upgrades just to get back to the playoffs, instead we are worse than last year pre-Cespedes.   Our problems will not be solved with one trade and we no longer have the prospects needed to obtain more than one impact player.

Does this qualify as some good news?  Mets 4th round pick from this year's draft, SS Michael Paez (Coastal Carolina), is playing for the national title tonight.  It's the rubber match of the College World Series final series with Arizona, tonight at 8 on ESPN. 

Coastal is the same school Steven Matz would have gone to had we failed to sign him out of High School (which almost happened; the paperwork was submitted by Minaya and co. with minutes to go until the deadline).

I'm going to interject here because this is simply false. The Mets won the division last year because Cespedes went on an almost 2-month tear of historic proportions and the Mets beat them head to head from August on.

More importantly, it is worth noting that the Mets were 4-5 games back of the Nats well into July, and the Mets lineup was so bad that in an opening game for a Nationals series at Washington, on July 20th (which the Mets went into 4 games back), looked like this:

People are really forgetting how much the Mets struggled last year until Cespedes came in. The lineups we were trotting out into August were a complete joke and not only could they not score but they also couldn't play any defense whatsoever. To say that the team is worse right now than it was having Flores and Mayberry hitting 4-5 is untrue and revisionist.

We should look up @T0mShane's posts from that day.

 

He posted some gems that day (and as you can see by the post the day after, didn't even acknowledge Matz's performance):

The dreadful Yankees, in a down year for them, are second in the league in runs scored. The Mets are fourth from last.

Marlins, Indians, and Brewers are going to blow up their rosters, too. Mets could find some nice pieces for a run if they wanted. But, they won't.

You can take Stephen Drew, if you'd like. Maybe that will help.

Drew would bat fifth on the Mets

Cubs are interested in Niese for some reason. They have four shortstops that are better fielders than any infielder the Mets have.

Harvey will be traded only when it comes time for Jeffy to cough up the $200 mil of daddy's fraud money it'll take to keep him. Until then, he sells too many tickets to even consider moving him. The trade that'll happen will end up being Niese for Aramis Ramirez and some low-A trash, with the Brewers paying half of Ramirez's contract.

He's the hero we need right now. Quick Tom, tell us how the Mets will definitely NOT make any positive improvements to the roster prior to the trade deadline!

I hope you develop a bone spur in your dick.

I am really liking what I've seen from Nimmo. Tough kid. That was a hall of an at-bat he had in the 8th. He's going to make a solid 2-hole guy.

Great at bat in the ninth ; called thrid strike - game over .

At least at this point, I can just be good with the fact that we're watching the Mets again and there is no reason to get my hopes up anymore.

So fun watching Murphy mash the ball now.  So fun.
