Cano and Ramos with HRís
Mickey strikes again  
nygfaninorlando : 9/8/2019 3:18 pm : link
Pinch hits for Syndergaard in the 5th inning and will turn the game over to the stellar bullpen in a tie game.
So sick of Mickey...  
ZGiants98 : 9/8/2019 3:27 pm : link
Literally fucked up the whole game. Yes Syndergaard's allowed 4 run but you think going to the pen in the 6th inning is better? Still pitching Avilan against righties when he's a strict Loogy. God I hate our manager.
Hopefully only 3 more weeks  
nygfaninorlando : 9/8/2019 3:32 pm : link
of Mickey and they get a real manager in place. You know youíre bullpen is terrible and you pinch hit for your 2nd best starter in the 5th inning. I know bases were loaded but Syndergaard can hold his own with the bat and he couldíve given you a couple more innings.

Im really sick of this team...

They've seen us way too much.

7-6 Phillies. Find a way to win this and get the hell away from this team until next year.
Are the Mets the only team without the scouting report

Bye Mickey

for anyone still hoping for the miracle. let it go.

Get rid of BVW, get rid of Mickey, fix Diaz - they have to, QO to Wheeler, add bullpen pieces and roll it out again next year.

the sad things is the past two years pretty much the Mets starting pitching has been pretty healthy.

Well that's just about it folks...

What has been the issue with Diaz? Locating pitches, changing speeds?

Flat sliders and inability to command the fastball consistently

He will throw a slider that has the batter flailing and then he will leave the next me right over the plate.
Yeah Iíd say pretty comfortably  
ZGiants98 : 9/8/2019 6:59 pm : link
It was the slider for most of the year. He seems to have found it recently and I think because of it heís looked better, but the results still arenít there. Obviously, heís still given up a few big homers lately either way.
Mets gave away most of their

prospects to ďwin nowĒ and are looking at a 4th place finish. Rotation will be paper thin next year with little help coming in the upper levels of the minors.

Mets have some injuries to position players but hit the lottery with starting pitcher health. Disturbing that they are struggling just to stay above .590.
Slightly above .500  
ZGiants98 : 9/8/2019 7:54 pm : link
teams can make the playoffs. 81 wins is .500. 85-90 can get you a wild card.

4th place sounds bad but we play in the toughest division in the sport and we are still right there with most of them.

Not saying you're wrong but the franchise isn't in some dire straights and their biggest trade was for a 24 year old talented arm under control for years. This team is very young and its not going away.

Peterson will probably be "backend depth" next year at some point ala Kay. We need to re-sign Wheeler though or find a ML replacement.
Really great article IMO on why Mickey

"A lineup" for one whopping game. No surprise we put up a ton of runs. Of course as does go the Mets... when we score we can't pitch.
Best part of missing the playoffs

Will be that Mickey will be canned. Id go to Girardi for a year. Why not? He has to be a huge upgrade.

Add a pen piece. Try to re-sign Wheeler. And let's do this again.
Iím just sad to see the Mets

almost 120 wRC this year in part-time duty. He's been getting more playing time lately and been raking. Not the first time he's been part of a late season playoff push.
