Last week Braves lost 4 out of 5. Two to Seattle and two to Giants



Get out of this down 1  
Everyone Relax : 9/21/2022 4:02 pm : link
and I think we have a big half inning coming up. Bats cant stay asleep this long
Much needed double play ball.  
Optimus-NY : 9/21/2022 4:03 pm : link
Taijuan needs to keep his ish together. Peterson is up in the pen. Figures we'll see him soon (next inning perhaps).
Here's Walker's line after 6 complete innings today:  
Optimus-NY : 9/21/2022 4:07 pm : link
80 P (47 S)
1 R (1 ER)
4 H
2 BB
3 K
1 HR

3.34 ERA

He oould go one more inning, but should he at this point? I'd give Peterson the ball for an inning or two, then hope they score a run, and then bring in Diaz.
Buck is rightfully pissed off.

That wasn't strike 3.

Otto has pitched the last two games, and I don't really trust anyone else I'd send him out for one more
well, I guess he should have been pulled  
speedywheels : 9/21/2022 4:19 pm : link
1st/3rd no out
and now a bloop hit  
speedywheels : 9/21/2022 4:20 pm : link
ugh
Here comes Peterson  
Optimus-NY : 9/21/2022 4:21 pm : link
Never shoulda left Taijuan out there to start the 7th.
Wasted opp today  
Everyone Relax : 9/21/2022 4:21 pm : link
Cant be throwing away games like with when the Braves are nipping at our heals
Walker should have  
larryflower37 : 9/21/2022 4:21 pm : link
Never came out for the 6th
for such a fun season and team  
KDubbs : 9/21/2022 4:21 pm : link
they are also so aggravating. seems any time they get a chance to gain they blow it
Hopefully they come back today, but we have to understand  
Metnut : 9/21/2022 4:31 pm : link
that they aren't going to win out. 2 out of 3 against a desperate MIL team is a good result. Holding even over 3 days @MIL while ATL hosted WSH is a minor win for us.

This weekend @OAK with ATL playing PHI, we should be aiming to pick up a game.

DanMetroMan : 9/21/2022 4:36 pm : link
figure that's ball game right there. Lets hope Nimmo is okay and Marte is back soonish.
Drew Smith doing Drew Smith things. Oy Vey already...  
Optimus-NY : 9/21/2022 4:37 pm : link
McNeil is a gamer man. He almost got that. Who do the Brewers have a chain link fence out there in the outfield? What is this? Middle School?
Good to see Drew Smith in mid-season form right away  
Snablats : 9/21/2022 4:38 pm : link
Home run to the first batter he faces

lol. He went downhill after he took that pregame picture with one of those supermodel chicks at Citi Field.
Why did he take Peterson out?  
Dennis : 9/21/2022 4:43 pm : link
I was away from the game, Peterson struck out the first batter he faced, and then I came back and it's 6-0 and Smith is in. what happened to Peterson?
Check it out...  
Optimus-NY : 9/21/2022 4:45 pm : link


Mets need to head to Atlanta in 9 days up 1 game on the Braves. If they do that, I like their chances. All they'd need to do is win one game there and they'd have the tie-breaker and then head back home to play the last three games of the season against the Nats (no jinx meant).

Nothing. Buck probably wanted to see what Smith was made of (which isn't much, lol).
Buck is feeling the pressure  
larryflower37 : 9/21/2022 4:47 pm : link
3 bad decision over the last 2 games from a pitching change perspective.

Wow, talk about over-managing!
Off-day tomorrow then three games in Oakland.  
Optimus-NY : 9/21/2022 4:50 pm : link


Need to win all three games there vs probably three left-handed starters. The Mets will be off again on the 26th and then head home to play the Marlins for two games, and then then have another off day on the 29th for the last time this regular season before heading to Atlanta on the 30th for three games.
Drew Smith cannot be on the playoff roster  
CooperDash : 9/21/2022 4:57 pm : link
There’s just no way he’s a reliable relief pitcher.

Absolutely.
Unhappy recap...  
Optimus-NY : 9/21/2022 5:03 pm : link


Mets need to out this behind them and play to win the next 5 games and hope the Phils win one against the Braves. No excuses for the Mets playing against the likes of the Triple A's in Oakland and then the Marlines at Citi. They'll have three off-days to help them out too before heading to Atlanta in nine days. Just need a 1 game lead before heading there. hopefully the Mets get healthy (Nimmo, McNeil, and Marte).
Vote for the 4th starter  
Optimus-NY : 9/21/2022 5:11 pm : link


I voted for Carrasco

Vote below.

Who should be the Mets' 4th starter in the playoffs? - ( New Window )
Mets are still up a game---fortunately.  
Optimus-NY : 9/21/2022 5:14 pm : link


Gonna need help from the Phillies though since the Mets and Braves are even in the loss column. The Braves have two games in hand.
Buck's press conference is on now.

Brandon Nimmo is confident that his injury will not impact him in the long term:

"It's already feeling a little bit better than when I first did it"

From the Athletic  
Snablats : 9/21/2022 10:19 pm : link
"In 11 starts against teams contending for the playoffs, Carrasco has a 6.71 ERA. In his 16 starts against everyone else, Carrasco has a 2.14 ERA."

Funny that now the beat writers are asking about the 4th playoff starter being Carrasco or Walker when all of you thought Carrasco could be a 3rd starter. With those numbers he might be in the pen

I just saw the grand slam today. I dont care if you havent pitched in the big leagues recently, missing your spot by over a foot and hanging a slider with an 0-2 count in that situation just cannot happen

Smith does it constantly
I honestly don't know who I'd pick between Carrasco and Walker  
Ten Ton Hammer : 9/21/2022 10:27 pm : link
for a postseason start. I don't trust Walker as much as some of you do.
I'd rather have Megill  
spike : 9/21/2022 10:31 pm : link
starting a postseason game than Walker.

Smith is another guy that should stick in AAA

That is an outside the box option that I like. It's been so long since we've seen Megill start and pitch though, but when he did, he was quite good.
I don't trust Carrasco  
pjcas18 : 9/22/2022 8:00 am : link
or Walker in the playoffs.

If the Mets can't go with a 3-man rotation I think they need to ride the hot hand, but maybe stack them and have a short leash so start either one of them, but have the other ready. kind of like a bullpen game. I imagine both would be on the PS roster.
I generally feel like it's hard to expect sweeps  
Chris684 : 9/22/2022 10:40 am : link
but I think this weekend is an exception for the Mets. We are throwing our big 3 against the punchless A's. Drop the hammer and take all 3.

If we can do that and the Phils just manage a split, we will be 2.5 up and in great shape to start the final week.

We have to expect a sweep of the lowly A's and the top 3 starters going. This is what playoff teams do.
Megill  
DanMetroMan : 9/22/2022 10:51 am : link
hasn't thrown more than 2 innings since June and he only did that once. He's not an option unless you're talking about an "opener" aka 2-3 innings and replaced.

Mets blew it IMO by not using the past few weeks to stretch him out. They are more confident in Carrasco and Walker than then should be.

Still enough time to stretch him to 35, 50 and 65 pitches before the playoffs but I doubt they do it.
Next season  
spike : 9/22/2022 11:16 am : link
I'd like to see
Degrom
Scherzer
Bassit
Carrasco
Megill

Peterson
Lucchesi
Maybe Butto or someone else
they are getting lucky on the carrasco option  
Eric on Li : 9/22/2022 11:22 am : link
the salary isn't crazy but the $11m post buyout is probably better spent elsewhere. i'd guess Trevor Williams will cost half that and they can put Peterson/Megill into the rotation. Butto is looking like he may be an option at some point next year at least as depth too.

JDG and Bassitt are going to require raises in the $10m ballpark, so letting Carrasco walk pays for 1 of them.

Walker will probably get a 3/45m or something like Matz last year, which would also be a $10m raise. I'd rather keep him for a few years than Carrasco for 1 i think. but if i were guessing right now i think they will let him go too.
