    That’s a point you can’t ignore. They lucked into Nimmo, a guy they drafted in 2011 in the first round. Blocked him intentionally with a 3 year 40 million dollar Bruce contract. Personally, I think they’re too passive with their prospects. I hate how they’ve built their team too. Slow and unathletic, on a team who prides itself on its starting pitching. It doesn’t make any sense.

    I guess he’s still Nathan. Velocity for the sake of velocity. He’ll always have a job though in the major leagues as long as he’s throwing hard his life is pretty good.
  3. Tyler Skaggs 2018 Outlook

    He’s probably just good now. Top prospect, good peripherals in not particularly terrible years to begin with, and now legitimate results.

    Can you find it with 22 steals at shortstop? I think his ranking in leagues belies his value. He’s pretty unique in the current climate. 22 steals is low for what I expected but he’s still at the top of the league. The game is being played differently 40 steals needs to be looked at as a monster number now.

    And the wild card in 2016 despite being once again ravaged by injuries. It’s going to come down to their young players panning out. Rosario and Conforto need to be good. Rosario is only 22 and has tools. Conforto is coming off of a major fluke injury. Maybe that ended his career or maybe it’s just going to take time we don’t know yet. Nimmo looks pretty solid not sure what his ceiling is but I think he’s at least a strong side of a platoon with great on base skills with some pop and speed. Cespedes and Bruce are both albatross contracts so they’ll be here whether they’re productive or not. Not many teams right now can boast a healthy top 4 in a rotation that rivals the Mets. If they can figure out how to build a bullpen with a new general manager they’re at least competitive if their young players realize some of their potential.
  6. Jacob deGrom 2018 Outlook

    Unless your new general manager is already there you can’t trade deGrom. That is going to shape your future, and any potential candidate for the job is either going to want him there to build around, or have him as a chip so he can make the trade and build a team in his vision. If they trade deGrom at the deadline and wind up hiring a general manager outside of the organization I may just give up because that doesn’t make any sense barring a package that is so undeniably good it cripples the other team in the process.
  7. Trea Turner 2018 Outlook

    The position he plays plus the .350 on base percentage can’t be ignored. Steals will become exponentially more difficult to come by in the coming years as well. They already are unless you’re compromising some other aspect of your team.

    Jeff Wilpon during Sandy’s press conference when he was stepping down reiterated that he is the president of baseball operations and any potential trade and/or signing will at its end go through him. If this is going to be their formula going forward with a new general manager they better at least draft well. The minor league system is their biggest problem besides major injuries. Need an entirely new bullpen too can’t forget that. I watched Jeff try to open the huge champagne bottle after the 2015 NLCS and even as good as that moment was to watch as a fan “the boss’s idiot son” still came to mind.

    10 over through their first 11 games and currently 15 under before the 4th of July. Can we get a polite, little golf clap for the depth of that ineptitude? Being that bad isn’t easy most teams couldn’t on purpose.
  10. Brandon Nimmo 2018 Outlook

    He probably could have used a 10 day dl stint just to let him rest a bit. It’s there for teams to use and take advantage of but the Mets don’t do that.

    And callaway pinch hits Reyes for degrom after a bad inning and 84 pitches l. God I hate this guy he’s as big a loser as his team.
  12. Jacob deGrom 2018 Outlook

    I thought about his kid when I first heard it so as long as it’s nothing serious whatever. He could’ve went on a bender at a Miami bar for all I care the team blows and he’s giving them everything he has. I’m sure Yoenis has an already scheduled tee time for tomorrow.
  13. Nick Pivetta 2018 Outlook

    He’ll be a great auction buy next year if the up and down continues and the numbers look pedestrian come seasons end. This is only his second year in the majors the strikeouts are there just needs some polish and growth. Whether that happens is another question but the price will probably be right to find out.

    Great streaming option next start against Oakland per Rotoworld for those in leagues with dead people and toddlers.

    Nice piece of hitting by Murphy. Taylor got his bat on the ball. Domínguez is a kid but they weren’t exactly meatballs.
