Unbelievable but ;tc; just outmaneuver an opposing manager!

@  Drucifer : (24 May 2016 - 19:58)

Send him down and let Borass moan & groan to media on how the :mets: have no respect for their prize pitcher..

@  brian stark : (24 May 2016 - 19:51)

He needs a reality check, because this whole "I can work trough this" tough guy bullshit is not working, and it's affecting the team to it's detriment.

@  yogib8 : (24 May 2016 - 19:48)

Done

@  West Coast M... : (24 May 2016 - 19:47)

Is Harvey done for the night or is he back out for the 6th?

@  yogib8 : (24 May 2016 - 19:43)

Harvey has walked on water for his baseball career going back to college and probably little league, he doesn't know how to fix whats wrong.

@  Drucifer : (24 May 2016 - 19:41)

Now will they send him down?

@  West Coast M... : (24 May 2016 - 19:38)

His demeanor on the mind is very telling

@  yogib8 : (24 May 2016 - 19:38)

Rendon looked safe

@  West Coast M... : (24 May 2016 - 19:38)

It has been pathetic for some time now.

@  brian stark : (24 May 2016 - 19:35)

Harvey needs to be sent down or put on the DL. This is getting pathetic.

@  brian stark : (24 May 2016 - 19:16)

Middle innings killing Harvey once again.

@  brian stark : (24 May 2016 - 19:06)

Last four hitters in our lineup tonight batting: .196, .190, .000, .167. Is this May 2015?

@  brian stark : (24 May 2016 - 19:05)

If that was a strike, the pitch earlier that Harvey threw was one.

@  Drucifer : (24 May 2016 - 19:00)

:Cabrera: :solo: ;hr;

@  brian stark : (24 May 2016 - 19:00)

ASDRU!

@  brian stark : (24 May 2016 - 18:55)

46 pitches through 3...

@  brian stark : (24 May 2016 - 18:51)

Maybe Harvey's plan is to have Stras wear himself out on the basepaths so we can hit him?

@  brian stark : (24 May 2016 - 18:49)

I'll be curious how long the proposed "new strike zone" lasts once implemented. Much like the "let's speed up the game" crapola last year. This year? All the "gains" made given right back. Just enforce the rules in the book.

@  brian stark : (24 May 2016 - 18:47)

Yep, .391 in Vegas means beans. Just look at Campbell's .363 now...

@  METS FANG : (24 May 2016 - 18:46)

and as for the thigh high, so you're telling me he's just trying to get ahead of the curve? ;)

@  METS FANG : (24 May 2016 - 18:46)

Kelly's hot hand haha...

@  METS FANG : (24 May 2016 - 18:45)

so much for Kelly

@  brian stark : (24 May 2016 - 18:40)

I'd like to see the overhead on that pitch...

@  brian stark : (24 May 2016 - 18:39)

And, FANG, if they go through with the strike zone changes, pitchers WILL have to deliver pitch after pitch thigh high...

@  brian stark : (24 May 2016 - 18:38)

Espinoza is 3 for 6 against Harvey in his career. SSS...

@  brian stark : (24 May 2016 - 18:37)

Wilson Ramos the Met Killer up...

@  METS FANG : (24 May 2016 - 18:31)

everything is elevated. can't deliver pitch after pitch thigh high

@  Drucifer : (24 May 2016 - 18:21)

Nope, that was not the :DarkKnight:

@  brian stark : (24 May 2016 - 18:19)

Touch shaky on the first batter, but a double play and a grounder is a nice finish. 14 pitches in the first inning isn't too bad, either.

@  brian stark : (24 May 2016 - 18:15)

Matt's thinking too much out there.

@  Drucifer : (24 May 2016 - 18:06)

:pb:

@  Drucifer : (24 May 2016 - 18:03)

;ayr;

@  Drucifer : (24 May 2016 - 17:37)

Will the Dark Knight be pitching tonight or will it be the other guy?

@  Drucifer : (24 May 2016 - 15:07)

Smith is Duda replacement. It will take another like Smith, but a year or two farther along to get Smith ;sa; tight hands. The Mets are loaded with a bunch of untested options that they need to go thru first before you talk Smith.

@  Drucifer : (24 May 2016 - 14:59)

:goodday:

@  West Coast M... : (24 May 2016 - 13:31)

I wouldn't trade Smith for a rental either. I would consider trading him only for a long term solution. My concern is everyone is looking for a short term piece expecting Duda back. The Duda we get back may be sapped of his power like Wright was when he returned from his fractured back. Duda less the power element leaves you with a Campbell like hitter, we have enough of those.

@  brian stark : (24 May 2016 - 12:55)

Well, Smith is ONLY 20 for crying out loud, and power is the last trait to develop. He's showing doubles power now, and as he ages and fills out, those doubles should start going over the fence. He might not be a 30 homer guy, but I could see him as a 15-20 homer guy, with .275/.350 splits. His defensive reputation is high. He sounds like a Keith Hernandez/John Olerud type. I don't trade that potential for a short term rental.

@  West Coast M... : (24 May 2016 - 12:49)

The good thing is that trades are Sandy's strength. So I look to see him work some magic....again!! :)

@  METS FANG : (24 May 2016 - 12:42)

btw - I wholeheartedly disagree on the Smith front, but thats a different conversation

@  METS FANG : (24 May 2016 - 12:42)

If you're crossing Smith off, then you're really looking for the future piece, which is going to cost a whole lot more than what we'd want to give and likely not available via trade at this point in the season.

@  West Coast M... : (24 May 2016 - 12:33)

I think for the right piece as a long term solution you give up farm pieces. Duda is not the answer and with Smith's lack of power I have reservation that he is as well.

@  brian stark : (24 May 2016 - 11:04)

Well, Lucroy is a right handed batter, d'A is right handed too, so the platoon idea would not work. Duda is a lefty, so you COULD work a 3 for 2 platoon in those two spots. I'd list my preferences as 1. Wright 2. Flores 3. Lucroy (depending on cost)

@  METS FANG : (24 May 2016 - 10:17)

and then you bench TdA when back? As I said, I keep the farm piece, I play Flores

@  thomasam : (24 May 2016 - 10:10)

Because if you're bringing Lucroy in there's no way he's not catching after Duda is back

@  thomasam : (24 May 2016 - 10:10)

Really it would be a redirection, and right in the middle of the year

@  thomasam : (24 May 2016 - 10:08)

Yeah, it's a big commitment for a short period
