Stop the panic.
AGONE just crushed one...

Nothing like Cincinatti to get the bats going!
Nice to not have to worry

Why is Cespedes playing if he’s still hurt? You can clearly see it.  
PhiPsi125 : 5/7/2018 8:27 pm : link
He’s a liability in the field right now. Same old Mets.

I guess Cespedes is going to have quad issues his entire time with the Mets, huh?

What confuses me is that I don't understand why they don't give these guys a day off after even a minor injury. One of the few areas our roster is deep in is OF depth. This is a team aching (or should be!) finding ways to get Nimmo ABs.

Cespedes has a minor injury? Start Nimmo! It's a long season. Keep guys fresh, especially when you have a good player backing up.

I'm still really confused why they started Conlon. If I'm Lugo or Gsellmen I have to be pretty annoyed seeing inferior pitchers getting starts and getting lit up all the time.
Stop with the stupid salt and pepper crap

You’ve been shut out several times in a week. Knock it off
As much as Gsellman and Lugo deserve a spot in the rotation, I get  
PhiPsi125 : 5/7/2018 8:43 pm : link
why they weren’t chosen. They wanted someone for a spot start that could give them length. Probably wouldn’t be smart to use Gsellman/Lugo in that situation.

deGrom's start fell on his day. That's it. Oswalt is ahead of him on the depth chart and of course Gsellman and Lugo are too if it were anything long term.
Sewald has been our best reliever

IMO Familia has been pretty close. But, I think I mostly agree that Sewald has been sneakily pretty good this year.

Yeah I just saw Sewald's WAR lost 3/10ths of a win from giving up 3 runs the other day so Familia is slightly higher right now. Still Sewald would be a top 5 reliever in the game if he kept up this pace. He's been really really good. Much better than Lugo and Gsellman who have been getting a lot of credit.
This game is still way too close for comfort

We better win this game.
Nice! Wasn't expecting this!

Ken Rosenthal

@Ken_Rosenthal
#Mets confident they will trade Harvey, sources tell The Athletic. Four to five teams interested, including #SFGiants, as noted by @jcrasnick. NYM would pick up vast majority of Harvey’s remaining salary, which is in $4.5M range, to get something in return.
Familia better close this out

A WIN!  
ZGiants98 : 5/7/2018 9:59 pm : link
Holy smokes. Of course it would come on a PJ Conlon start night. lol
Prediction  
Vanzetti : 5/7/2018 10:01 pm : link
Harvey will be the Giants closer by July. Strickland has been much improved this year but he is better as a setup guy.

I know a lot of people want Matt gone. And honestly I can’t blame them . But I think the situation could have been handled better
Nice

Yeah I don’t think so w his injury history. I also think they handled (pampered) Harvey better than any other pitcher w his performance the past few years
Conlon looks like he could be effective out of the pen  
Vanzetti : 5/7/2018 10:05 pm : link
Doesn’t have the stuff to make it through the lineup three times, but has a nice change that is hard to hit the first time you see it

I can not deny any of what you said. Matt acted like a prima Donna. Still think the Mets will regret letting him go

He gave them no choice.

He was getting bombed every single time out and refused a minor league assignment.

What other option did the Mets have?

He was babied enough.
Please ship out
