You think they play this game?

To add - it would be nice to postpone Thor  
bhill410 : 4/15/2018 11:55 am : link
And go into the nats with Thor - DeGrom
Yeah, it’s not supposed to rain until later tonight.  
PhiPsi125 : 4/15/2018 11:55 am : link
But it will be cold and windy. Not like yesterday’s nice weather.
Supposed to be in the 30s with the wind chill  
ZGiants98 : 4/15/2018 11:57 am : link
Rain is supposed to start around 3:00 PM.
Yeah, they’ll play  
Shecky : 4/15/2018 12:01 pm : link
Terrible conditions, but rain won’t be an issue till after 4. Worst case scenario is it’s a rain shortened game, but most likely can play 9
how long do we stick with Reyes  
CMicks3110 : 4/15/2018 12:03 pm : link
on the bench. This is his what? second start? I don't think he's a bench player. He needs to play regularly.
I’m seeing temps in the low 40s and rain won’t begin  
PhiPsi125 : 4/15/2018 12:05 pm : link
until 6pm. Definitely windy though.

I think this might be his third start. Guillorme would offer more defensively at SS, but can't hit. Cecchini has defensive issues at SS so really is not ideal if Rosario needs a night off.
And don’t mess with this clubhouse  
Shecky : 4/15/2018 12:24 pm : link
Reyes will be fine
30 pitch first inning for Thor  
PhiPsi125 : 4/15/2018 1:25 pm : link
Fantastic.
Starting to wonder if Thor is hurt  
jpkmets : 4/15/2018 1:27 pm : link
He's a 96-97 pitcher right now rather than 98-99.

Been an uneven start to the season for him and the first was more of the same.

Disconcerting.
Cespedes looks dreadful  
ZGiants98 : 4/15/2018 1:36 pm : link
I swear people used to complain about Duda. Cespedes is ten times more streaky.
Another great AB  
jpkmets : 4/15/2018 1:37 pm : link
from Frazier!
Frazier is a beast  
ZGiants98 : 4/15/2018 1:37 pm : link
Thank you Toddfather.
Thor probably having a tough time getting a feel for the ball  
Vanzetti : 4/15/2018 1:53 pm : link
In the cold.

With a 20 mph wind blowing in from right field no reason to worry about LH hitting it out. More high fastballs
Thor should be batting 6th in this lineup  
Vanzetti : 4/15/2018 1:56 pm : link
.
Thor strikes out 5 in a row on an ice cold day  
ZGiants98 : 4/15/2018 2:06 pm : link
Yeah... he's clearly injured.
20 swinging strikes in the first 4 innings  
Vanzetti : 4/15/2018 2:29 pm : link
Wow!
Clealry something isn't right  
Shecky : 4/15/2018 2:31 pm : link
He hasn't K'd EVERY batter.
DL him just to be safe.
1 foot short jeez  
bhill410 : 4/15/2018 2:34 pm : link
Also I kind of hope the brewers get a 2 out hit to take what would be noah lifted after 6 with a no-no
Wheres the tag attempt  
spike : 4/15/2018 2:42 pm : link
Todd?
No arguing  
spike : 4/15/2018 2:44 pm : link
Balls and strikes
They should start running Nimmo  
CMicks3110 : 4/15/2018 2:46 pm : link
to see if his long speed translates at all to stolen bases:

Have a day, Brandon Nimmo. Current #Statcast status ➡️
Leadoff hit: 103.3 mph exit velo, 29.8 ft/sec sprint speed.
Scoring from 2nd: 28.4 ft/sec SS.
Triple: 103.8 mph, 400-foot #barrel, 28.6 ft/sec SS. #Mets

29.8 FT/S is very very good.
Thor with a ton of 98s in the ice cold  
ZGiants98 : 4/15/2018 2:46 pm : link
in the 5th inning for those still worried about velocity.
nice play  
madgiantscow009 : 4/15/2018 2:47 pm : link

He should learn to bunt for basehits
Jose Reyes not coming through  
Chris L. : 4/15/2018 3:01 pm : link
in the clutch. Now there's something new. Please get rid of this guy.
101 pitches  
spike : 4/15/2018 3:07 pm : link
But only 6.1 innings. Shame that Noah has to leave the game.
He has to be more economical.

Maybe they shouldve pinched hit for him last inning.

Reyes is the 25th man and tutor for Rosario and friend for Cespedes.
Now he can sit back down for a week
For everyone bitching about Gonzalez this game  
bhill410 : 4/15/2018 3:15 pm : link
Is 1-0 if he played today over flores
They have to double switch in  
spike : 4/15/2018 3:16 pm : link
Gonzalez for defense on a 1-0 game!

And how that wasn’t an error on Frazier  
bhill410 : 4/15/2018 3:17 pm : link
I have no idea. Just sloppy play all inning letting gsellman down
This weather is killing

The Mets defense
Reyes should be the 26th man  
Chris L. : 4/15/2018 3:20 pm : link
he is sooo done. Also, can't play him on a day when you have all the other bench guys in the line up. Bad lineup constructed by Calloway today. This is a rubber game and you have to give Thor some help.
Mookie  
madgiantscow009 : 4/15/2018 3:21 pm : link
probably my first favorite baseball player.
Nimmo  
madgiantscow009 : 4/15/2018 3:22 pm : link
Mookie inspired HR.

nice ft/sec sprint speed on that.
Nimmo into the wind  
Vanzetti : 4/15/2018 3:25 pm : link
Impressive

With his size, he should be able to hit for more power than he was shown so far

I assumed he was a smaller guy, guess not:

Brandon Nimmo

Positions: Outfielder and Pinch Hitter

Bats: Left β€’ Throws: Right

6-3, 207lb

Nimmo should be the mets CF

Nimmo
Conforto
Cespedes
Machado
Flores
Smith/Alonzo
Rosario
Plawecki/Nido

Mets might want to consider a move  
pjcas18 : 4/15/2018 3:37 pm : link
to acquire a catcher and free up playing time for Nimmo.

Lagares? Not sure he's enough to get a catcher.

and they're not going to deal Bruce IMO.

Not sure who else, but Lagares seems the ideal candidate, but technically that just makes Nimmo the 4th OFer, need to get him in the every day lineup. and not just saying this off today's performance, many people felt this way.

Bruce and Cespedes only have 2 more years left. Maybe you go with a 4 man OF rotation for one more year than trade Bruce or Cespedes. Nimmo isnt doomed to ride the bench forever and Im going to go out on a limb and say everyone wont stay healthy forever making it moot anyway.

Nimmo is already the 4th OF. Lagares only plays against lefties or comes in late for defense.

Either way, my point is dealing Lagares doesn't necessarily free up playing time for Nimmo.

Bruce might be the only one they move that can do that and it's more natural I think having Nimmo in CF and Conforto in RF.

but I doubt they trade Bruce.

not sure what they can do
Remember when I said Nimmo should  
Chris L. : 4/15/2018 3:51 pm : link
not have been sent down....this is why. He is so much better than no hit Juan. Late game defense only buys you so much. Nimmo is a big difference maker in the line up.

I dont think it's the end of the world to have a real rotation. Give Bruce, Cespedes, Conforto, and AGone each one day off a week. If Nimmo is getting 4 starts plus is the first guy off the bench as a pinch hitter I think he will be fine. For some reason we arent doing that with him yet though.
Nimmo  
pjcas18 : 4/15/2018 3:55 pm : link
needs a double for a cycle.
At some point, Mickey is going to have to make the big boy decisions  
PhiPsi125 : 4/15/2018 4:01 pm : link
and sit players that are underperforming. This is ridiculous. Reyes shouldn’t start ever.
