Kyle in NY : 8/9/2017 10:18 pm : link
haven't seen many fastballs beat Judge or Sanchez, even during these slumps. But they're getting a steady diet of breaking balls and they just haven't made the adjustment.

I'm sure they will though
We've gone full 2016 Judge now.

Have 5 hits.

The walks and catcher if are keeping these cunts in the game.
Yanks made a run at jay Bruce  
DennyInDenville : 8/9/2017 10:26 pm : link
Indians offered less, but offered to pay his remaining 2 months salary.

Bruce would have been nice at DH

So the Mets send him to the Indians, likely for lesser prospects. Either because they didn't want to deal with the Yankees, or they wanted a team to cover the full salary (for two months) because they're cheap.

Either way, that's lame.

That's an excellent point B.

It's why we couldn't get Duda either. It's a Mets town and staying that way until further notice
Another run, we'll take it.

he did have good numbers in AAA but as I recall,  
Del Shofner : 8/9/2017 10:35 pm : link
people said it was a hitters park. Not sure where that was.

But maybe he can hit, and he looks decent in the field.

Del Shofner : 8/9/2017 10:41 pm : link
Colorado Springs, like 75 games this year - had himself quite a line in terms of offensive output. OPS over 1.
gotta give them credit  
Stu11 : 8/9/2017 10:46 pm : link
I dog them for awful situational hitting but tonight they were superb. Lil Ronnie can play on my team any time. Approach is better, great job by the hitters picking up unusually shaky middle relief tonight. Judge is absolutely lost right now. Hopefully he shakes it off.
Huge win.

Judge should get dropped down in the lineup at least temporarily. He seems like he'd accept that and just work harder. Hard to fault the guy - he was Ruthian for half a season. Let's let him work through it.

I'm just disappointed that he and Sanchez continue to flail at outside pitches and refuse to go to right.

Good win.
It's pitch recognition  
Kyle in NY : 8/9/2017 11:39 pm : link
pretty clear they're having trouble identifying off speed pitches and they're way out in front of it. I'd venture to guess Judge's numbers on fastballs are still pretty decent. He went to RCF with one on Sunday for a home run.

So it's not that they're refusing to go to right, they're just not recognizing off speed pitches the way they were in the first half. And they're so far out in front, they have no chance to go the other way.
Holy shit,  
Dave in Hoboken : 8/9/2017 11:47 pm : link
the Mets are taking a beating over that trade, haha. Pretty funny.
I can't imagine  
Kyle in NY : 8/9/2017 11:48 pm : link
having ownership like that. I feel for their fans
Holy crap, bahahahahah

NYY: 2 prospects Mets asked for and $1m in salary relief.

CLE: 30th rounder Ryder Ryan and about $5m in salary relief.

Mets chose latter.


You literally can't make it up. Mets fans are raging on Twitter, too.
Bruce is happy to be gone:

Having spoken to Bruce about the situation in recent weeks I know he is ecstatic: He wanted a shot this year at the World Series.
----------------------

Can't say I blame him. I bet it has to be frustrating for players to know they are on a team with ownership that is never willing to go that extra mile to win.

Also glad we didn't give anything up for Bruce, but that's besides the point.

...on who the two prospects were that the Yankees offered?
One name mentioned was Domingo German...  
Dunedin81 : 8/10/2017 8:52 am : link
that was mentioned by Incarcerated Bob though, so take it FWIW.
The other name, same source (grain of salt)...  
Dunedin81 : 8/10/2017 9:47 am : link
was Luis Medina. If that's true, Mets fans are right to be upset. An MLB-ready reliever and a flamethrower with a big ceiling.
The Mets are hilarious  
B in ALB : 8/10/2017 10:32 am : link
Freddy Coupon taking the money instead of the prospects is such a Mets-thing to do. SAD!!!

Can't wait for the Baghdad Z Spin Cycle to go into full effect today.
When whispers of deGrom trade rumors started  
bceagle05 : 8/10/2017 10:45 am : link
I wondered what the Yankees could conceivably offer that would force the Mets to say yes. Based on these past couple of weeks, I'm not sure Torres, Frazier, Florial, Adams, Sheffield and Betances would get it done. They might ask for Judge or Sanchez, too.
