I don't think they need her help... the Mets have already mastered the art of being on TV everyday despite not having any talent.

Pfft, (L)Astros are 1-9 since the All-Star game, and are 2-16 for the whole month. Not even the Mets can claim that crappy of a record

Everyone was waiting for the wheels to fall off and they finally did. GO GET SOMEONE FOR THE BULLPEN AND A RIGHT HANDED BAT!

Last night was fun. Nats batting around and putting up 6 runs in the tenth. Good times.

Gee, it's almost as if losing two of your starting pitchers while your lineup goes cold results in losing.

/I see what I did there.

Yea but the Astros aren't even trying to win. Also you don't have to worry about running into this little toad-whore at a Houston game.

I actually wish they were doing worse, because I'd love to see David Wright traded to a contender, both for his sake and the sake of the Mets farm system.

I disagree. Wright can help the Mets for another 5-7 years if they resign him. The Mets aren't in the best of shape, but their longterm plan should include trying to win within 5-7 years.

And by "someone for the bullpen", you mean "get rid of everyone there and start over from scratch", right? I thought the Phillies' bullpen was bad (and it is), but the Mets' pen is a whole 'nother level of awful.

I'm not certain why the Mets sent down Pedro Beato. Yeah, he got crushed yesterday, and yeah losing a game on a wild pitch sucks. But the whole pen sucks, and Beato's worth at least a longer look than 7 appearances and 4.1 IP

I agree with you. They're not there, but they're not so far off that I'd consider it impossible for Wright to be around for the next Mets contender. And yeah, something needs to be done about the bullpen, but after this run of pure shiat I don't think it's the time to do it.

Call up some more AAA guys. Tell Ramon Ramirez to suck it up and send him out there constantly, because he's one of the only guys who has been good in the recent past and shouldn't suck, so maybe he can turn it around with more work. Ride Jon Rauch until he goes back to being himself. Clone Josh Edgin. Ask Acosta (really, he's back? really?) to throw lefthanded and Byrdak to throw righthanded.

But I think it's too late to go bringing new people in, or at least too late to give up much of anything to do so. If there's a reliever out there who can be gotten and is under contract after this year, sure.
 
2012-07-24 06:43:04 PM
Oh, and stop asking Ramon Ramirez to go more than an inning. That's never been his thing.
 
2012-07-24 06:46:38 PM
Didn't you Mets fans notice that Pittsburgh gave them a high five and said "tag, you're it."

That's what I meant. Only go outside the organization if it doesn't take much.

Yo, right next to the dictrionary definition of suck there is a picture of the Phillies' bull pen staff. The good thing about the Phillies collapse is it will clear up October and November so I can pay attention to Penn State football.

It is funny, you just know there were lots of Met's fans thinking "man, if only the Phillies didn't have this division on lockdown we could totally take on the Braves for the penant or wild card. I mean, it isn't like the Marlins will do anything, and the Nat's are...well...the Nat's."

Then when the Phillies sucked it up so hard so early, Met's fans just knew, KNEW, that this was their year.

When out of the blue, the Nat's pull one of the biggest 180's I have ever seen season-to-season in professional sports. Laughably bad for many years in a row, to one of the best records in baseball, the top spot in the division, with an OBSCENE number of injuries to their starters, and the core of the team, both pitching and fielding, locked-in for the better part of the next decade.

Mets fans thought they would win the division? The Nats being good is "out of the blue"?

I'm pretty sure no Mets fan who was even slightly rational thought that.

Every Mets fan that I personally know is ecstatic that they've far exceeded expectations this year, and depressed that they're now attempting to meet said expectations. And I would say most Phillies fans (before we knew how bad they were going to be) worried about the Nats more than any other team this season.

Thinking this is the year? I came in thinking I'd be happy with 75 wins and ecstatic with 80, and most Mets fans I know agreed. If anything I'm happy they made it as far as they did before this bad run.

As for the Nats, anyone paying a modicum of attention knew they would get good. Maybe not quite this soon, but with all of the talent on their team it was coming.

So, yeah. Stop making up narratives.

I told everyone I knew that the Nats were the team to watch out for in the NL East.

Um, yeah Nats was in no way "out of the blue". I love my Mets & they were exceeding my expectations until about 3 games ago. Ugh. Now it hurts to watch. I love David though. I hope he stays. FOREVER.

He's my favorite player, which is why I both want him to stay and want to see him on a winning team.
