  1. Dude has been crazy streaky. .617 OPS in April, .843 in May, .839 in June, .543 in July and now hot again in August. Enjoying this while it last but there might beat least one more swoon and bounce back before all is said and done for 2019.
  2. Vegas over/under for wins this year was 85.5, right about their current pace. McNeil and Alonso exceeding expectations while Diaz, Familia and Cano have been busts. They've had a positive regression to the mean thanks to a run against bad teams. Let's see what happens what they play some tougher competition. But it looks like they will shake out not far off from spring expectations - decent team around .500 on the fringes of the playoff race.
  3. If he gets back to playing how he did before the shoulder injury, then hell yes.
  4. Looking at his hard hit rate and BABIP on Fangraphs over the second half, he could be in for a positive regression. Let's hope.
  5. Bat is legit. Not a very good fielder and Mets didn't have a spot for him most of the year. Getting good PT now with Dom Smith hurt.
  6. Minor league numbers look good, peripherals look good.
  7. This is extremely disappointing to say the least.
  8. Maybe getting off the astroturf as a groundball pitcher will help him.
  9. 9th losing season since 2009! Just terrible.
  10. Also, if the ball is different, you have to figure it feels different in a pitcher's hand. Another possible reason some top tier guys struggled with command.
  11. Throwing to Ramos tonight. Has had much more success with Nido. And this is after Syndergaard reportedly said he wants to throw to Nido not Ramos.
  12. Feel like he never got right after the injury.
  13. They should. He proved he deserves to play every day, and hit higher in the lineup than Cano. Problems are that he is a natural 1B and they’d have to continue playing him out of position the OF, plus this is the Mets so you can’t expect them to do the logical thing.
  14. The Met lineup he faced yesterday was not bad. Cano was out. McNeil, Alonso, Conforto, Dom Smith, Wilson Ramos are all tough hitters. Cautiously hopeful for the second half.
  15. I have more solid hitters than I know what to do with and a lot of my pitchers have been busts. And can't swing a deal for a pitcher on the trade market.
