They easily have the worst bullpen I have seen in a long time. And I know how bad the Mets bullpen is.
watching Rosario, Conforto, McNeil, and Alonso turn into studs  
Eric on Li : 8/9/2019 10:44 pm : link
is really fun. Yes Conforto made an all star game once before and they've each had some success before this recent run, but not as the core of the lineup. This is their team right now. Conforto grinded out a pitch to hit like a true #3 hitter does. Rosario is getting on base and making hard contact. Alonso is obviously the definition of a cleanup hitter. Really cool to watch the pieces fit together like this.

And shout out to Sandy Alderson. That's 2 high-ish draft picks, 1 high profile IFA (his first when he took the job here), and a diamond in the rough draft pick his regime was patient with.
Sweep these fuckers and

FP Santangelo after Frazier's tying bomb, he didn't analyze the pitch location or the swing or something else relevant to the at-bat (you know, his job and all), he just complained that Todd's bat flip was too big. Said something like, "I know he's excited and all but...blah blah blah." Like he's ever had such a big hit in his career. What a tool.

I wonder what he had to say at Roblesí bat flip right at the Mets dugout earlier in the game. Let me guess...nothing? Lol.
I joked in ST that Alonso and Davis  
ZGiants98 : 8/9/2019 11:02 pm : link
would be the next Bash Brothers. Well, here we are in August and they are back to back in the middle of the order hitting bombs.

Thanks! It was pure elation. People in my section spraying each other with beer and stromanís family a few rows back. These are one of the nights we live for as sports fans.

HUGE.

Davis scored on Frazierís home run. If you mean Rosario getting stranded after his double I agree, but that was a one-out double as McNeil Kíd to lead off the bottom of the 8th. I think Rosario got stranded at 3rd a couple times last night.

Either way the Mets own Doolittle which has to be demoralizing to Washington.

I know Sandy's not popular around here  
ZGiants98 : 8/10/2019 9:53 am : link
But I can't help looking at all these young cornerstones, mostly his draft picks and IFA signings and help thinking this was always the vision.

I always said the lineup was a little behind the pitching but if not for incredibly unfortunate injuries over the last couple of seasons I do believe we should have bridged the gap from 2015-2019 successfully and had a sustained run.

Either way, I haven't seen a young hitting nucleus like this in baseball develop together in some time.

Michael Conforto
Brandon Nimmo
Amed Rosario
Pete Alonso
Jef McNeil
Dominc Smith

and now add

JD Davis.

Heck, with a little luck we would have kept TDA and he would have blossomed with this group too this year. Oh well.

Either way, this is an incredible group that has a chance to stay to gather for some time.
a few nice highlights on the farm last night too  
Eric on Li : 8/10/2019 10:17 am : link
Most notably Vientos has been surging lately and stayed hot going 2/5 with a 2b. Over the 2nd half of the season (41 games) Vientos is hitting .301 with a near .900 OPS with 7 homers + 14 2b's. If there was a little more time left in the season they probably would have promoted him to A+, but at this point probably best to just let him ride out the hot streak. Mauricio (having a very solid season hitting .284) and Newton (not having a great year) each hit homers for Columbia too.

Baty also had a big night with a hr, 3b and 2 rbis and David Peterson had a strong start in AA going 5 innings and allowing just 1 hit (0 runs, 3k/2bb). In what has generally been regarded as a disappointing season, his numbers overall don't look so bad:

3-4 (19 starts)
4.37 era / 3.34 fip / 2.93 xfip
96k / 30bb / 90 ip (all pretty solid)

The lack of results in his record, his peripherals looking strong, and his babip against being very high (.345) make it it appear that he's had some bad luck and not a lot of run support. Maybe he's still got a chance after all.
One thing I have to give Brodie and the owners credit for is playing

Alonso from day one rather than bringing him up mid season to get another year of control.

It wouldn't have been midseason, it would have been a few weeks to keep his service time this season under 172 days. That's still obviously a very significant amount of big league time. The Cubs made sure Kris Bryant only got exactly 171 days in 2015 and he still played 151 games.

I have no issue doing something player friendly and to try to put the best team on the field, but in a 4-5 years when they break off extension talks with him like they just did with Wheeler the 1 less year of control may be a regret if he's the MVP level player we hope he continues to become. IMO it was a very Wilpon move in the sense that they got positive publicity and it cost them 0$ in the present day. But in the future it's going to add a chunk of $ to a payroll that they aren't usually so willing to accommodate.

This guy is sounding better every day. I hope he stays hot.
& btw I say that as someone who wanted him called up last august  
Eric on Li : 8/10/2019 10:36 am : link
because I thought then there was too much valuable experience to be gained (2 months) that it wasn't worth being cheap. We also would have known a lot better how to approach the offseason.

For 9 extra games, with 3 solid young players pushing for playing time (Mcneil, Smith, JDD) I would have just bit the bullet for a couple weeks.

Really impressive he kept that fair. I donít think there are very many teams who can match our assortment of IF prospects. Mauricioís upside is high enough FG said he would have been in contention to be the #1 or #2 overall pick this past year. Gimenez is a unanimous top10 SS prospect even if his upside isnít enormous. Baty and Alvarez are making noise in their first taste of pro ball (especially Alvarez) - and Vientos just keeps progressing.
