Seems rest can get you a mess.

@  brian stark : (30 Jun 2016 - 21:24)

No, but this ending is making me say stuff I was trying avoid. Damnit, why can't we ever just get a damn easy win???

@  Drucifer : (30 Jun 2016 - 21:14)

Did the game put you to sleep while you were in church?

@  brian stark : (30 Jun 2016 - 20:50)

Dru if you're getting the game from MLB are you getting the Mets booth or does MLB have a broadcast crew in house.

@  yogib8 : (30 Jun 2016 - 18:46)

Even the booth sounds bored

@  yogib8 : (30 Jun 2016 - 18:46)

Just dozed off for 10-15 min.

The way that Granderson has been hitting, having him sitting is an upgrade

@  Drucifer : (30 Jun 2016 - 18:24)

Our lineup tonight looks like a bad joke.

And no ;eyecandy; to boot!

Part 2. Was the team ready to contend in 2015? The rotation projected to be deG 2.69 ERA, Harvey returning from TJS, Wheeler until he tore his UCL in ST, Colon 4.09 ERA, Niese 3.40 ERA and Gee 4.00 ERA. The only additions to the lineup was Cuddyer coming off an injury and costing a draft pick plus Mayberry to the bench.

Mets fans with David undergoing surgery for bulging discs, or Dodgers fans with kershaw put on the DL with "mild disc herniation" in his back.

OK, who is freaking out more...

@  yogib8 : (30 Jun 2016 - 17:13)

If you are not prepared to win, why spend money prematurely to add a 33 yr. old regressing hitter coming off a season missing 100 games and at the cost of a draft pick. Why add a 20M pitcher when there are ample low cost pitchers available. His 2 season ERA was 4.13 why is that good?

@  brian stark : (30 Jun 2016 - 16:36)

And, Colon was a GOOD deal, and still is. Granderson was not considered a bad signing at the time, and has been so-so overall. CY was a bust, but that was "only" 7 mil.

@  brian stark : (30 Jun 2016 - 16:35)

I'll agree on Turner, but as you noted, this was 2014. We are talking pre 2016 now.

@  yogib8 : (30 Jun 2016 - 16:22)

Part 1. Was the team ready to contend in 2014? The rotation projected to be Wheeler coming off 17 ML starts with a 3.42 ERA, 1.36 whip and a 4.1 BB/9. Gee 3.62 ERA, Niese 3.71 ERA and also missed 7 weeks with a partial torn left rotator cuff. Harvey was out with the TJS. If not why did Alderson dump Justin Turner with 2 years of control, to be replaced by Eric Campbell. Why did Alderson spend 90+M for Colon, CY and Granderson giving up a 1st round pick. Options for Colon; Volquez- 5M, 170 IP. Saunders 1.5M 183 IP, A Harang 1M 143 IP. Mejia, Montero and Dice-K 1.5M also made 23 GS. deG came up in May and made 22 GS

@  brian stark : (30 Jun 2016 - 13:58)

OK, yogi, I'll bite. What would you have had Alderson do differently? Keep Murphy? We already have a long term 2B in Herrera ready to come up. Have Murphy take Duda's place? Maybe that could be argued. Improve the Middle infield? It's not been Cabrera or Walker who were the problem. Improve the catcher. Good idea. Who could we have brought in that was available? Improve the 3B. We already had David on the roster, and Flores is a capable backup for him. Improve the outfield? OK, he resigned Cespedes (who has been everything we could have hoped for), kept Lagares, and signed de Aza (who has been a disappointment, true, but he's the 5th outfielder, if our team crumbles based on the fifth OF, we never had a shot in the first place). Improve the team in season? Well, he traded for Johnson, acquired Loney for nothing, and just brought in Reyes, again for nothing. Improve the rotation? Well, we already had tons of depth there, but he was still able to bring back Colon (thank God) for more depth there. IMprove the pen? He brought in Bastardo (who had a solid track record), and signed a lot of arms for depth. I don't know what he could have done differently. Please enlighten me. Do we need more speed? Absolutely. Do we need more OBP? Absolutely. (I find it funny that the same people who eschew the patience preached in the organization are the same one's who complain that the homers are solo, but I digress). Did all the moves work? Obviously not. Are there holes in the roster? No doubt whatsoever. But laying it totally on Sandy is wrong, too. It's not all Sandy, it's not all TC, it's not all the players. It's a combination of all three. Of the three, I lay blame on 1. Terry (he has not shown any ability to construct a lineup or handle a bullpen). 2. The players (injuries are part of this, but execution has been horrendous) 3. Sandy. 4. The WIlpons (just because). My feelings, take them or leave them.

@  yogib8 : (30 Jun 2016 - 12:02)

The team as a unit is dysfunctional, all the home runs that don't count for more than a walk a SB and a base hit unless there are riders on base. The top of the lineup isn't hitting so the middle of the order misses RBI opportunities , the bottom of the lineup is hitting, (Flores and Loney) but they can't run and there is no one to drive them in. There is a lot of whining about TC here when the problem is Alderson who put this mess together and turned it over to the manager to take the heat.

@  yogib8 : (30 Jun 2016 - 11:53)

There has to be a foundation for a winning streak, DW is no longer that foundation. Is Duda going to bring enough that Loney isn't providing to carry the team.....no he isn't. The return of Lagares will help, but his return and moving Cespedes back to LF is a boost.

@  Drucifer : (30 Jun 2016 - 11:24)

Yep the :Mets: are in a slump in both hitting & pitching. The Q is - do they & their :fans: throw in the towel? Or do they keep on pushing looking for that evasive winning streak?

@  Drucifer : (30 Jun 2016 - 11:19)
