Still out of likes from last night , seen a few comments up through here I would like .Cards up 4 to 0 3rd inning its looking like the Cubs may be faced with a must win to hold on to first place plus the Reds may win as well before tonights  Cubs Yankees matchup.

This Harvey thing, whatever it was, seems to have greatly affected the team. They are down 6-0. The pitcher subbing for Harvey did not have it. The team had been hitting well lately but they look flat today. They are hitless after 4 innings. There is still time but they seem flat.

 

Who wants to trade for Harvey? Who needs pitching?

Not really we keep getting people hurt lol it wont matter

The team had been hitting well lately, scoring an average of 8 runs per game in the last week. Facing a pitcher making his first start, Mets hitters are hitless after 5 innings. There is still time but they seem flat.

Ouch

The Mets announcers mentioned that the Cardinals pitchers have the best ERA in the majors. 

Yes other than Wainwright , things are coming around. We just cant afford to be losing anymore position players.

IMO Their Starters have been excellent but they have had issues in the bullpen

Not really as much lately, Broxton is off one game on next . Oh started shaky early but form has been great the last 2 to 2 1/2 weeks. Rosenthall has been ok but was shaky when he returned. Broxton in my opinion is a liability he helped blow the 4 run lead against the Brewers. In that Game Bowmen gave up homer to lose but actually has been most consistent from get go. My big concern early was Oh but I'm not worried there anymore. They were losing early not scoring and playing shoddy Defense.Seigrest had bad start but hes been good lately as well.Socolivich  and Broxton era just under 8 other than them 2 I'm happy with BP last 2 to 2 1/2 weeks.

And to your credit PT yes the bullpen was terrible early say first 12 games. Broxton and Solocovich are expendable to me. Wainwright would do well in the pen . Bring up one of the young arms for his spot in the rotation.

I don't know what happened but they are reporting on the radio that my Mets have suspended Matt Harvey without pay "for violation of team rules". He was supposed to start today.

 

Get rid of the guy, please.

Report I'm hearing is he developed a migraine after playing golf the day before & didn't show up to the ball park for yesterday's game.

    • The reality is, as ever, likely between the two polarised extremes that seem to get applied to Leonard.    Let's start with this obsession about tackle numbers, it's a horribly bad stat to * a player because it provides absolutely zero context. For example if you're on a bad team where the D is on the field more, you're more likely to have tackle opportunities. Where the tackle was made is more interesting (TFLs/Yards gained pre-tackle). We can see from the numbers and the film that Leonard isn't too bad at getting penetration when the play calls for him to rush.    Besides, what contributes to success more, tackles or turnovers. Sounds a stupid question I know, but giving up yard doesn't necessarily lead to losing, while losing the turnover battle tends to have more impact on win %:     We complained long and hard about not having a playmaker on Defense for many seasons, we now have one, and people complain he's too splashy?    The pass coverage is more suspect, but odd. Because he was pretty good in his (2nd?) season, before dropping off. I don't know how much injury is impacting this year. I also don't know how much is down to the 'react and rally' type scheme that we seem to use.    As for the money, that's just the way the NFL works, constant inflation of contract value, and the last guy who got paid will be overpaid until the next guy gets paid. We're not too far removed from the outcry and QBs going north of $20 million a year for some pretty average QBs, now that would be a steal for a legit starting QB (excluding rookies).    He is what he is, a playmaker, a very very good player, a team leader,  but perhaps not the complete package (yet). 
    • Agree, he's  a veteran with a live arm, but his mobility also makes him a threat with his legs as well - a 1st & 3rd is a small price to pay for a guy who could be our franchise QB for about a decade, no matter how high that 1st ends up being but I  believe it'll be a mid round pick, possibly even in the 20's.
    • I was surprised with how good the field stayed. Not really any standing water at all. I will say living in Indiana we get thunderstorms a lot worse then what they call a bomb cyclone. It seemed pretty weak with all the hype of how bad it was going to be.
    • Does it seem to you guys Okereke is starting to play better?
    • It’s so nice to have A WR that doesn’t have to be schemed open. Just throw it to Pittman.    How was the red done tonight? I assume with 30 pts it was all good. I think we only kicked one FG.
