THE OFFICIAL NEW YORK METS THREAD: 2017 Regular Season - Page 4

post #91 of 411
Gutsy win. Travis was on fire tonight and the bullpen, especially Robles, stepped up.
post #92 of 411

woke up and saw they won in 16 innings! nice to see them keep coming after that close call went the other way.  it was the right call, but so dame close to being inconclusive.

 

conforto needs to play everyday....

d'Arnaud has been great this season so far. What impresses me about him this season is that he holds runners well

deGrom dealing 96 pitches with 13ks and a bullpen that's burnt out, and he takes him out for Salas. deGrom should be starting the 8th inning (mistake 1)

After 2 outs and a walk, Blevins has to be in there to face Yelich (mistake 2)

Now you guys see why I will never be a Terry guy.

I agree with all of this.
Reyes and lagares both in the lineup hurt us. Both guys are not hitting.
Conforto and/or Bruce should've started in the outfield today.

Marlins can hit and Collins put a starting lineup with many cold bats.

I wouldve started Flores at 3rd, Duda at 1st and either Bruce or conforto in the outfield.

And I def would've kept degrom to start the 8th.

We should've won tonight smh

The entire pen has already been over-worked and deGrom showed zero signs of fatigue, and the staff will have an extra day of rest coming up.

Protecting pitchers is the most over-rated thing ever. You can't waste these types of games away always looking ahead, when you need to take care of the games in front of you.

My bigger issue however was leaving Salas in after the walk, when Blevins should be facing Yelich with one out needed.

Much needed day off after losing 3 straight close ones to end the Marlins series. Marlins ALWAYS cause us fits.

Need to stomp on Philly for sure. So many games to start the season and all versus NL East. Love how our starters are throwing, but bullpen has been lackluster.

Agreed

I will go to first 2017 Mets game tonight

I understand Collins concern but he needs to stop being a sissy when it comes to pulling our starting pitchers. DeGrom shouldve came back in the 8th inning. Maybe Collins will change a little bit and let starters go +- 100 pitches.

On another note, i scooped up a white striped reyes jersey for $25 (worn) but it looks immaculate. Tired of having jerseys that look like parachutes on me. Finally found one in my size happy.gif

They are a one dimensional, strike out heavy, streaky team on offense

TDA standing there like a statue when Reyes dropped the pop up was bizarre

They've had a rough couple of late inning losses after that extra innings game in Miami mean.gif
post #105 of 411
Season hasn't been pretty so far. First month of the season is too important to the division race and they're dropping games to Philly and Miami. The pitching is a mess outside of Harvey, Thor and Jacob. Familia really put a strain on an already suspect bullpen.

Collins need to start Flores at 3B no matter what if he faces RHP until Reyes finds his mindset back

Seeing Reyes's terrible performance was painful sick.gif

Flores and Rivera need 3rd base reps at this point, Reyes is an absolute mess right now. Granderson is also only good for two months and is terrible the rest

I'm actually not concerned over the pen because they've been severely over-used and in unfamiliar roles, the offense hasn't been pretty the past few days and they're extremely streaky (can be pitched to). Lineup lacks some contact hitters cough* Murphy *cough

Familia being out has hurt them since the extra innings game, the team is wasting some good performances from the starters so far.
post #108 of 411
The Bruce was loose. Finally an end to the losing streak. Unfortunately, Duda and D'Arnaud are hurt. Silver lining is some playing time for Conforto or TJ.

I couldnt understand why some people wanted to keep Granderson so badly and give away Bruce. Im all for Sitting Granderson for a while, going left to right, Cespedes, Conforto and Bruce should be our starting outfield.

Reyes needs to sit NOW. Have Flores start at 1st (now that Duda is out) and TJ at 3rd. We should start seeing more offense.

I was looking forward to seeing this during the winter. Please keep Bruce thru this season, his contract is just 1 year and at 13million. If he produces another 30HR and 80 RBI season, that is a sweet deal.Bruces RBI would be higher if we could get more guys on base.

Said it a week ago before the losing streak but Conforto needs to be out there everyday. Kid can be really special if given the shot in this lineup with everyday reps. Curtis is a vet and knows the game, he's 36, he needs to and will accept that his time is coming to a close.


Reyes...that infield is a mess. I know they want to be patient but sooner than later they need to bring up Rosario and shift Asdrubal over to 3rd

I read this article on Jay Bruce.
http://www.espn.com/mlb/story/_/id/19173545/country-boy-jay-bruce-finding-comfort-big-apple

I did not know he was bouncing around from home to home when he first came to New York.

I hope they give Gavin Cecchini a chance as well

I'm not catching feelings for Bruce sucking when we picked him up last year. He's a streaky player his whole career. Now that he's off to a hot start, everyone looking for reasons why he struggled last year. He will go through slumps this year as well, that's just baseball for you.

100%. It's a long season and we will have different players stepping up throughout

Rough game.

Conforto shining once again.

Familia back and what does he do with the 1st batter he faces?

Walk

Lololol

You can't lose to a team like the Phillies at home with Noah on the mound, but these injuries keep piling up to key players when that was the big concern coming into the year.

Missing Cespedes right now with the Nats the next week or so is terrible timing. Lineup is just HR or nothing

Old man Granderson with another hit-less night. Conforto should play everyday, but Terry will sit him once he goes 0-4

Not a good start to the season at all, they should not be .500
post #117 of 411

just seems to be the consensus in this thread alone that conforto needs to play everyday.  i'm sure anyone who watches or follows the team will say the same.  what is the hesitation from sandy and terry?  With cespedes out, he'll def see more time.  lagares in CF and conforto in left.  Bruce at 1B?  why!.  reyes needs to take a seat.  might've lost his chance if his backup plays well.

To simply put it, this team is a mess right now. Washington this weekend isn't good timing for this group.

If Ces is out for a few days, I expect Conforto will be starting in LF.

Bruce should be playing everyday, the whole game. Either RF or 1B. With Duda & Flores injured, thats 2 positions Bruce is at. He did ok yesterday defensively.

Im really tired of both Reyes & Granderson but Lagares isnt any better at the plate.

Walker needs to wake up. I like that he bunted a few games ago. How come Reyes, Lagares and other quick runners arent bunting more?
