Thor always bat 8th?

Lol, at Reyes STILL in the lineup.  
PhiPsi125 : 4/20/2017 3:40 pm : link
WTF
at this point I'd bat grandy and reyes after the pitcher.

So far he has this season, with Rivera after him.
Get Reyes out of here..  
Chris684 : 4/20/2017 3:55 pm : link
Move Cab to 3rd and bring up Rosario.
More to do with Rivera than Thor  
bhill410 : 4/20/2017 4:08 pm : link
They want someone who the pitcher can bunt over and since Rivera is one of slowest in the league they don't want it to be him
Thank God for Jay Bruce  
Vanzetti : 4/20/2017 4:08 pm : link
Imagine if Sandy had moved him for a middle reliever as the press and pundits were clamoring for him to do?

It is still a mystery why he decided to pay Neil Walker 17 million but thank the lord that he kept Jay Bruce.

Rosario has 0 extra base hits, 2 walks and such a move would cost the Mets potentially 20+ million dollars on the back end so... aka not happening.
Maybe sheds some light on the Reyes still at 3B

Wilmer Flores out with an infection. Spent last night in hospital according to #Mets sources.

day DL for Wright, I think he'd be eligible to return 6/1
Joint infection?

Flores's infection is in a joint, per TC. Mets return to 7-man bullpen by adding Familia & optioning Gilmartin & Montero. Plawecki is up.
Not sure if posted  
pjcas18 : 4/20/2017 4:14 pm : link
Montero to Vegas.

Fitting that Wilmer would have a joint infection on 4/20...i'll let myself out #Mets
An infection in the joint sounds like it could be very serious  
steve in ky : 4/20/2017 4:17 pm : link
I hope he gets it cleared up quickly before it turns into something awful
So three Mets go down last night  
PhiPsi125 : 4/20/2017 4:18 pm : link
Duda, TdA, and Flores. Too much to ask for a healthy season, lol.
Wright  
DanMetroMan : 4/20/2017 4:19 pm : link
isn't even throwing yet but his 60 day would run 38 days after today because you can back date it.
Terry gave Flores the dreaded  
pjcas18 : 4/20/2017 4:31 pm : link
"it's a day or two" Sayonara Flores. See you in 2018 if flesh eating bacteria doesn't take your limbs.
I hope Bruce is capable at 1st and takes over there for the ROS  
Eric on Li : 4/20/2017 4:48 pm : link
that would be an ideal scenario.
Jay Bruce isn't as good as Lucas Duda  
ZGiants98 : 4/20/2017 4:54 pm : link
So no that would not be the ideal scenario.

I'm shocked Duda, TDA, and Flores all are still on the team and didn't get DLed. Have to consider that a blessing. Bye bye Montero and Gilmartin.

DanMetroMan : 4/20/2017 4:58 pm : link
Randazzo with a weird argument with me on twitter. He's saying Lagares should play a lot more than he does.. uh over whom exactly? Who are you benching for Lagares when everyone is healthy? He cites Kevin Kiermaier. Kiermaier career 106 OPS+, Lagares 86. Other than both being great defensive players it's a silly suggestion and comparison.
so we have zero bench tonight  
spike : 4/20/2017 5:57 pm : link
just Plawecki and Lagares and a gimpy TDA?

Lagares should play more in the 8th and 9 th innings with the Mets leading.

Welcome back FAMILIA!!!!
From AA

"Juan Lagares has become the teamís backup infielder. Lagares originally played shortstop in the minor leagues, but he has not played there since 2009 with the Savannah Sand Gnats."
Lagares can't stay healthy  
Eric on Li : 4/20/2017 6:12 pm : link
so not sure how you play a guy more who is always hurt.
I really don't know what helps the bullpen more  
ZGiants98 : 4/20/2017 6:34 pm : link
The addition of Familia or the subtraction of Montero and Gilmartin?

How many times has Duda even played 150 games in a season? Been top 10 in MVP voting? all star games? silver sluggers? Answer to all of those things is 0, except playing 150 games, he did that once.

Jay Bruce has had farts linger longer than the fleeting glimpse of Lucas Duda the "better player" (who hasn't been seen since May 2015).
Yeah he's  
Rflairr : 4/20/2017 6:47 pm : link
probably better defensively. But thats about it
Not to get into an argument about this  
Ten Ton Hammer : 4/20/2017 6:53 pm : link
but Lucas Duda?

Other than a week-long hot streak here or there he's largely invisible. He hits the ball far, but that doesn't thrill me on a team that can already hit more home runs than most teams and has done that with Duda on the DL more often than not.

I'd love to see if a single other person in here would agree with you? Jay Bruce a better hitter than Lucas Duda? Anyone?? Anyone?? Dan what do you say about that? This whole place wanted Bruce gone and traded and after 2 hot weeks he's suddenly a better hitter than a healthy Lucas Duda?? As usual, your distortion of facts always make for a good laugh. May 2015?? LOL. LIAR. July 2015. wRC+ 106, August 2015 168, September 2015 157. That's MVP-level play over that stretch. ALL of 2014 and all of 2015 he was a wRC+ 130s hitter. Jay Bruce has never come close to that a single time in his entire life. Lucas Duda missed last year to injury. That makes him a bad hitter? Jay Bruce CAREER 108. Lucas Duda CAREER 122. And Silver sluggers? LOL. You realize they give those out based on position right? There is way more competition at first base and they literally have nothing to do with each other. Thanks for the chuckle though Eric.
Well I guess TTH does.  
ZGiants98 : 4/20/2017 6:56 pm : link
Wow.
So 2 agreed within 5 minutes, but you're welcome for the chuckle  
Eric on Li : 4/20/2017 6:59 pm : link
Can the next poll be "how many people think the bullpen is the 2nd best in all baseball?"
Funny thing...  
ZGiants98 : 4/20/2017 7:01 pm : link
Even though Duda is much better for his career anyway, Bruce's last few years have actually been the worse years of his career. Most of his career stats are puffed up by nice seasons a long time ago even though he's still basically only a hair over league average.

Yeah...  
ZGiants98 : 4/20/2017 7:06 pm : link
Bruce totally hit a few more home runs than Duda did once bro... totally makes him a better hitter...nevermind he gets on base a million times less. He's also a huge RBI guy with Votto on in front of him bro.. RBI's are totally relevant... Oooh oooohh I got one... Bruce has a career batting average of .249! Duda's is .246!! I rest my case!
Can you take 1 day off from making game threads insufferable?  
Eric on Li : 4/20/2017 7:14 pm : link
you're whole routine is a potent mix of sad/tiring and we've all seen it at least 500 times at this point.

One day off?? There hasnt been one issue here save for last night's blow up with PJ and it seems like we are 100% good now. Not one.

As for tonight, Im not cursing you out. You want to come at me with phony BS stats Im going to come back at you with real relevant data. But lets move on. The discussions with you and OPS are tiresome and you are never going to agree with me.
I think it's safe to say Thor is on his game tonight...

Michael Mayer @mikemayerMMO
Noah Syndergaard hit 100 MPH three times and strikes out the side in the first inning.

Mathew Brownstein @MBrownstein89
Justin Dunn worked a 1-2-3 2nd inning against Dunedin. 2 SO on the night. @stluciemets 1, Dunedin 0 Top 3. #Mets
Wow...

James Wagner ✔ @ByJamesWagner
Excluding í16 wild card, last time Noah Syndergaard walked a batter was Sept. 19. Thatís a span of 102 batters, including 1st inning today.
Syndergaard still doesn't have a K/BB ratio  
ZGiants98 : 4/20/2017 7:30 pm : link
lol. 0 walks.
Wow...  
ZGiants98 : 4/20/2017 7:40 pm : link
Bruce laughable so far.
Defense wow

Wtf is Cespedes doing there?
Jay Bruce is truly a NY Met  
PhiPsi125 : 4/20/2017 7:49 pm : link
Wins games with his offense, loses games with his defense.

Fantastic contribution to an otherwise .500 team.
Seems like that was more on Noah than Bruce

Might have been but I also think Duda would have had that ball over the foul line on the back hand that started the inning. Sloppy, messy inning all around.
To fault Bruce for not getting to that all but of bounds ball
