NFT: Mets at Royals Game 1

ZGiants98 : 8/16/2019 5:25 pm
Amed Rosario – SS
J.D. Davis – LF
Pete Alonso – 1B
Michael Conforto – RF
Todd Frazier- DH
Juan Lagares – CF
Joe Panik – 2B
Tomás Nido– C
Rubén Tejada – 3B
Noah Syndergaard – RHP

This lineup is UGLY! lol Take 2 of 3 on the road in KC and that will be fine with me. Just toe the line for another week until hopefully some reinforcements arrive. LGFM!
Must want to rest Frazier a bit.  
81_Great_Dane : 8/16/2019 5:27 pm : link
I'd favor putting Davis at DH and Frazier at 3B. Nothing against Tejada, but, y'know...
Sewald is up. Gagnon optioned.

Agree with Mayer here...

I mean the Mets had Chris Mazza as the 8th man in the bullpen for 11 days and never used him. Mets rotation is good enough you don't need that 8th guy active per say. If you have a big bullpen day you fly a guy in, Triple-A isn't in Vegas anymore and your bench sucks.
Definitely would prefer  
ZGiants98 : 8/16/2019 5:28 pm : link
Dilson Herrera or even Rene Rivera on the bench over an 8th pen guy.
Can anyone explain why  
ZGiants98 : 8/16/2019 5:32 pm : link
Ramos is not the DH tonight?

The more I think about it, this lineup configuration is baffling. You make your best defensive player the DH and leave JD Davis in LF and move Ramos to the bench? lol
He can't hit but there's no reason to carry Altherr > Billy Hamilton  
Eric on Li : 8/16/2019 5:32 pm : link
also wtf does Guillorme have to do to get a start? Last start was 10 days ago. Has just 2 in the last months. So as of tonight, Ruben Tejada has as many starts in the last few days as Guillorme does in the last 2 months.
Nimmo starting in St Lucie tonight  
Eric on Li : 8/16/2019 5:34 pm : link
that's some damn good news for a change.

LFGM?
Sounded like Lowrie's assignment was right behind Nimmo's  
ZGiants98 : 8/16/2019 5:40 pm : link
Getting Lowrie, Nimmo, and McNeil back in a week or so completely changes our lineup.

1.) Nimmo CF
2.) Rosario SS
3.) McNeil 3B
4.) Alonso 1B
5.) Conforto RF
6.) Davis LF
7.) Ramos C
8.) Lowrie 2B

Wow. Thats a whole new team basically.

Yes I keep mis-typing that. My bad. lol
Rosario's DRS's  
ZGiants98 : 8/16/2019 5:47 pm : link
dropping like a lead balloon. Went from -18 down to -13 and he has a positive DEF rating which pulls from UZR.
Feels like playing w/ fire a bit w/ that bottom lineup?  
ChaChing : 8/16/2019 5:50 pm : link
I don't know KC outside of being a weak team. Maybe if they are better at the plate / putting balls in play it makes sense

But even if Lagares & Panik keep it up, it's 3 easy outs after that. Nido's had moments but still not too good and we can't expect much from Tejada yet, til he shows at an MLB plate again

Then again KC is likely the last best time to rest anyone

Can you translate that last post

I think KC has a lot of speed & runs all the time. Might see Nito more often

Sure. Basically there are advanced metrics that track defense. DRS and UZR. Both are based of the same BIS computer tracking system. Some people like DRS better. Others UZR. Fangraphs prefers UZR and this makes up part of their overall fWAR rating.

Basically, Rosario had a REALLY bad DRS score. 0 is average. It was as low as -18. Considering it's now at -13, it shows that he's been playing much better defense lately (+5 level). His UZR and defensive rating on FG is above average. All really great signs which backup the eye test. We've all seen him playing better.

Per Elias: Last night, Pete Alonso became the first NL rookie to have five or more hits and six or more RBI since Jimmy O’Connell with the N.Y. Giants on June 1, 1923. He had five hits and seven RBI. #Mets #LGM

Why shouldn’t we? Has he failed in some way? Last time he was on the field he was killing it. Injuries suck but I’ll remain optimistic until I have proof I need not to be. And let’s be clear.. how good does he really have to be to be an improvement over guys like Tejada?

Brandon Nimmo - you will be shocked to find out - walked in his first rehab plate appearance with St. Lucie tonight.
Huge series. Gotta win it, obviously  
jpkmets : 8/16/2019 7:52 pm : link
And if you can sweep it, all of a sudden it’s a 4-2 trip after a 5-1 home stand.

Super news about nimmo. Getting him back would be huge. Plugging him and Lowrie In could make the difference.
getting Nimmo back will  
Rory : 8/16/2019 8:06 pm : link
fire this offense up even more.

fuck I'm excited
Is JD gonna catch the leaders in BA?  
ChaChing : 8/16/2019 8:55 pm : link
He's tearing it up the rankings
Regardless of how bad the Cano/Diaz deal  
ZGiants98 : 8/16/2019 9:05 pm : link
may end up being, the JD Davis deal was absolute thievery. Kelenic wishes he can do what Davis is doing right now in the majors some day offensively.
Losing to this team  
KDubbs : 8/16/2019 9:42 pm : link
Will be the end of the dream. Wake up assholes
Getting dicey  
ChaChing : 8/16/2019 10:04 pm : link
bot 6th, 0-outs, runners 1st & 2nd for KC, already up 2-1
Noah had some control issues there  
ChaChing : 8/16/2019 10:12 pm : link
but gets out unscathed, still 2-1
JD  
ChaChing : 8/16/2019 10:37 pm : link
a little gimpy after a run to 1st. Pinch runner brought in

This game is back to really dicey...bot 8, 2nd & 3rd 0-outs w/ Brach on the mound. Still 2-1 KC

Lucky passed ball just now, no run scored

Diaz warming...............
Bases juiced  
ChaChing : 8/16/2019 10:49 pm : link
after a Brach walk

Here comes Diaz
Aaaaaand Diaz walks in a run  
ChaChing : 8/16/2019 10:55 pm : link
still juiced, 0-outs, 3-1
4-1, after a single.......  
ChaChing : 8/16/2019 10:56 pm : link
Daniel Jones looked great today, eh?
Salami, 8-1  
ChaChing : 8/16/2019 10:59 pm : link
tho might be foul...

and still doesn't really change the narrative on Diaz, just delays the inevitable...
No salami  
ChaChing : 8/16/2019 10:59 pm : link
4-1. Still sucks
too bad  
pjcas18 : 8/16/2019 11:00 pm : link
no one knew the Mets needed to address the bullpen.

and Tejada, like I said, is garbage and shouldn't be getting playing time with the Mets.
Even if Rosario gets on base...  
ChaChing : 8/16/2019 11:17 pm : link
my fave is up next after JD went out...Altherr

So basically Rosario needs a triple or HR
Instead we won't even go that far  
ChaChing : 8/16/2019 11:18 pm : link
4-1 KC
JD Davis  
pjcas18 : 8/16/2019 11:41 pm : link
tweaked a calf.

Awesome.
Too many easy outs in this lineup  
MetsAreBack : 8/16/2019 11:48 pm : link
I can’t get on the bullpen - if you’re going to go get Stroman you need to go acquire lineup length too. Otherwise what’s the fucking point?
Jd Davis now hurt lolz can’t make this shit up  
giantsFC : 8/17/2019 1:45 am : link
If you even tried

God at least I can still vaguely remember 1986.

Alonso prob next

Hard to get excited about Nimmo, he walks a lot but an average hitter at best. Anyway lost 4 out of 5 and players getting hurt, well at least they made a run at it.
Davis had some calf tightness  
MetsAreBack : 8/17/2019 9:32 am : link
said it was precautionary.

I would imagine they DH him today, but no excuses - the next two games are must win games.
