Not over yet but Posey is a very good player.

 

Yeah, he is a very good player. He has been since he came into the league. He is hitting like .360 now. I wrote earlier that he came into this game with only 5 RBI in 87 at-bats. You would think he would have more especially since he bats clean up.

I agree. I am afraid this Harvey mess may do the same to the Mets. We already had many injuries and now they have to deal with his stuff. He won't pitch til Friday. We have call up someone from the minors to pitch in place of him on Wednesday. 

 

We began spring training with 7 starters; 3 are on the DL. The team misses Syndergaard. He won't be back until around the All Star Break.

It has been happening for a few years. He has always put himself above the team. That is why at the beginning of last year I wanted to trade him for a good hitter. 

 

I read an article today that summarized everything well. Let me see if I can find it.

I still think when its all said and done the Central will come down to the Cubs and Cards The Reds have surprised  me  future may be looking up for them.

I agree, something we actually predicted before the season. I had Cubs around 95 wins and Cards at 92 if I remember right. I would be surprised if either one of them are separated by more than 3 games at the end of the season. They both may be around more like 90 wins though but still along way to go. I think Reds and Brewers will cool off.

Quote from NY Times article:

 

The suspension is the latest unwanted footnote to Harvey’s career with the Mets.

 

After impressive performances during a late-season promotion from the minors in 2012, Harvey seemed destined for stardom in the first half of the 2013 season. That July, Harvey was named the National League’s starting pitcher for the All-Star Game at Citi Field. But his season suddenly ended one month later, when he had Tommy John surgery to repair a partially torn ulnar collateral ligament in his right elbow.

Harvey rebounded with a strong 2015 season, compiling a 13-8 record, with a 2.71 E.R.A., as he threw a career-high 189 ⅓ innings.

 

The workload became a point of contention among Harvey, his agent, Scott Boras, and the Mets’ front office. Boras publicly expressed concern that the Mets were not limiting his client’s innings  as recommended by two surgeons, including one who had repaired Harvey’s elbow.

 

Sunday was not the first time that Harvey’s whereabouts had caused concern for the Mets. Before the team began its 2015 National League division series against the Los Angeles Dodgers, Harvey missed a mandatory team workout at Citi Field.

We all know Matt Harvey is your favorite Met :sarcasm:No biggy.

 

I used to like him. I had a lot of high hopes for him. He started the 2013 All Star game when he was a rookie (he may have pitched too many innings in late 2012 to qualify as a rookie in 2013). I went to a game where he pitched a 1 hitter (lost the no-hitter in late innings) . That may have been in 2013. I thought we had a future star.

That is what we thought about Mark Prior

    • Top 5 QB's in the league are: 1. Mahomes 2. Rodgers -you could flip that, it is even. I still think GB will win the SB this year but if I was starting a franchise today I would take Mahomes because of his age.   3. Brady even at 44     4. Allen   5. Russell Wilson when healthy - just had an off year plus was injured, he still has 5 very good to great years left. Unless you have a great defense a team is pretty much screwed if you don't have 1 of these 5 QB's. As good as Dak is, can never get it done. Dallas doesn't have the D. I don't see Matt Stafford getting it done either and look at the team around him. Rams will win tonight but after that Tom will knock them out.   I am 4-1 so far with my picks this week. Dallas is my only loss and that game was close. Jimmy G is a solid game manager and is good at times.     
    • I think whoever wins the Bills/Chiefs game is going to the SB. The Titans being the #1 seed should beat Cincy but after that they will be toast as usual. I may take Cincy just for craps and giggles because nobody knows how healthy Henry will be. Look I bag on Tannehill a lot so I do want to say he is above average, basically a solid game manager so he doesn't suck but I can't see them beating teams like KC or Buffalo with him at QB. Those teams have way too much offense. They will probably squeeze by Cincy due to lack of experience that Cincy has in the playoffs and it is at Tennessee. By the way we have the same problem with Wentz, if we faced a KC or Buffalo we wouldn't win either - just keeping it real that is why we need a QB like Wilson. You can beat teams like that in the regular season but post season is a different animal. 
    • The answer is we were totally fleeced by Philly. Wentz hasn’t been the answer and won’t ever be.  
    • No more unretiring for Roethlisberger
    • Time will tell, if Frank & Carson pull it together and he's effective as our starting quarterback for 5 to 10 years, a 1st & a 3rd will seem like a bargain for stability at the most important position for about a decade.
