In Sandy's on going talks with Colorado to try and swing a deal for Cargo it was nice to see him grab Eric Young Jr when his name came up as a throw in...getting him for next to nothing. Sandy's looking towards building this team into a major contender for many years to come and having a great bench is a good way to start


another blockbuster, guess sandy told you just as he has told you about beltran to the rockies...bourn will be a nice xmas present

when does anyone get to go to the suite? have you told them the brookhaven john story yet?

where you lied about begging him to say you took him to a suite at citi, met players after the game and took him out for steaks and drinks after the game[ what was also funny, you begged him to say you paid for it, and your broke]

you begged him to lie for you and try and fool us in the yank forum

your a desperate person, trying hard to build up this phony lifestyle....

lets see who you fool here.

I wonder if he had a problem watching the Sox and D-Backs celebrate walkoffs last night "Like they just won a WS" he's a total moron and Met hater from the 80's. Jerry I had the pleasure of flying into Atlanta yesterday to watch Matt and Zack no words needed for Matt but Wheeler is incredible with his adrenaline sky high and the HP umpire squeezing him to death he kept his poise like a 10 year veteran.... the Braves couldn't touch him. Rafael Montero is next and Met personal and ML scouts say he's better then both, I've seen him pitch 4 times and I can vouch for that. I cant wait for 2014 and beyond as Sandy has kept his word every step of the way


weren't you the guy who claimed he saw Santana in spring training and he looked great? no injury at all?

and how about the video you saw of Marcum? that is just a few weeks ago in this forum, where you claimed he looked great.

these fans are not that stupid to believe you. we get this bs daily from you in our forum. some uneducated dreamer.

Strictly off-the-cuff:

Juan Lagares is looking like a real major-leaguer lately. The guy covers CF like a blanket, has a great arm, runs like a deer and now appears to have learned to hit ML pitching, especially to RF. If I were Kirk Nieuwenhuis, I'd be worried.

Eric Young has the skills to be a leadoff man, which the Mets sorely need. Let's hope he continues to hit. When Young and Lagares are playing side-by-side, the Mets' OF is suddenly good.

What in the hell happened to Carlos Torres in Las Vegas? He looked like a pile of dogshit in ST; now he's throwing 93-94 mph and has a nice selection of breaking pitches to mix in. Looks like a different guy altogether. Much better than Collin McHugh.

I'm just sayin'.

looks like the hitting is starting to come around and this is without the big bats of Duda and Davis. If we can't hitr it out of the park it is good to do it with doubles. Young is working it out so far and Lagares is turning out good so is Quintinilla, maybe this is the way to go until Davis and Duda can come back and do their jobs. We'll see if Wheeler can continue his effective pitching Harvey hasw with the shutout today. Now we need a ten game winning streak. With Niese out and Marcum in the rotation it is going to be difficult.

Let's hear it for recent call-ups Josh Satin, Eric Young, Juan Lagares and Omar Quintanilla, who have boosted the Mets' offense in recent games. We have to face the fact that the guys they replaced were not getting the job done with the bat. It sounds like Ike has dropped the hitch in his swing and started to hit the ball hard. A Satin-Davis platoon at 1B may be the way to go from here on.
.
Lucas Duda might be the answer only if the question were: would the Mets be better with a big, strong guy in the lineup who can hit the ball 450 feet once a month and draw a lot of bases on balls, while at the same time playing LF like a statue, running the bases like an old lady and being totally useless at bat with RISP?

It's wonderful to root for a team that can actually score three or four runs per game.

Zack Wheeler experienced some normal growing pains last night, but it was a positive performance nonetheless. He was tipping his pitches, hung a slider that ended up in the seats and managed to strike out only one batter. On the other hand, he pitched well with RISP; three of the Chicago runs scored on outs, not hits.

Time for Dan Warthen to earn his salary by working with Wheeler on things like arm slot, holding runners on base and not slowing his motion when throwing an off-speed pitch. Let the maturation process continue.

Great post Eddie it's funny how spoiled we can get with a kid like Harvey....if last nights as bad as it gets for Zack we're in for a great long ride. The kid I can't wait for in Montero

Though the Mets did not win last night it can be said that the game was always in reach. Wheeler has a bit of growing to do and that's fine because even at this early stage in his career he keeps you in the game and gives your team a chance to win. He's competitive and that is an edge in the majors. Once Wheeler hones his skills and becomes accustomed to the Major Leagues he will develop into a fine starter to go along with Harvey. Not disappointed at all with his performance.

Time for a Little Heresy Dept.

Wow, Marlon Byrd was truly a wonderful acquisition during the offseason! His performance in the month of June has been outstanding, including six home runs and at least two spectacular throws from RF. And while he has been the second-best everyday player on the Mets' roster, we all know that this will probably be his only season with the club. I would guess that his trade value is about to max out in July, which would be an ideal time to include him in a trade package for a young OF hitting prospect who is still a year away from the bigs.

Would Sandy have the nerve to do it? Vamos a ver.

Hmm, adding Eric Young, Josh Satin and Juan Lagares to the lineup seems to have made the Mets absolutely decent against southpaws this season. Who knew?

I really like the way Satin wields the bat. He has the ability to wait an extra click before wristing the bat quickly through the zone. He may not hit a lot of taters but he has the capacity to stroke a lot of doubles. When Ike gets back he should never start against LHPs; Satin should.

As for the outfield, how about a Young/Nieuwnhuis platoon? Both are good defenders, with speed and good arms. Young is a better hitter against lefties while Nieuwenhuis can hit only RH pitching. A match made in heaven. Meanwhile, Lagares is starting to look very comfortable in CF and at bat. Needs to learn the strike zone a little better. With his speed, he needs to work the count a little better to improve his OBP.

Looks like the players are actually trying to be a winning team. A couple of young hungry kids sprinkled over some young veterans that want to be on a winning team finally and some older veterans that want to show that they still can play. Now this combination could make the rest of the season interesting. Unlike the last GM this Gm seems to have found players that a) Have something left in the tank b) Have something to prove to the Majors or c) The want to stay in the majors.

Very true. The Double A team at Binghamton is stacked with pitching and some hitters. Ike Davis better start hitting because if he doesn't then Allan Dykstra will be showing up at spring training in 2014 ready to make a bid for 1b.

When the Mets made the Dickey trade, of course D'aunard was the key piece. They wanted John Buck in the trade as a fill in until the kid was ready for the big leagues, which they figured would be July. There were some red flags though and that was the fact the kid had some injury problems, mostly knee injuries. That is a little scarey seeing he is a catcher after all. The Mets made the trade anyway and of course the kid gets hurt slowing down any progress he could have made at Triple A.
Buck, meanwhile does a Johnny Bench imitation in April, and the Mets look like they have finally pulled the wool over some other team's eyes. Well, not so fast Met fans. John Buck has reverted to what he really is, a journeyman catcher who couldn't hit a beachball if it was lobbed underhanded to him.
Last night, his baserunning in the 9th inning should cost him a fine from the manager. His run means nothing, so what does he do? Typical play from a very weak player. Of course he strikes out with the basesloaded, he can't get a flyball when you need to score someody from 3rd with less than 2 outs, it just goes on and on with this guy.
Collins should consider playing the backup a little more. The kid better recover from his foot injury and then get him up to the majors. If they don't bring him up sooner rather than later this season, he probably will start next season in the minors again because they will say that this was a lost year and he didn't get enough seasoning in the minors.
Either way, time to put Buck out to pasture.

Yeah, stick a fork in John Buck; he appears to be well cooked. I'd like to see Recker start four times a week for a while. If and when D'Arnaud finally makes it to Flushing, Recker might be a good backup. But we won't know until he plays with regularity.

Eddie, as I'm watching the NY feed of the Met game, you are probably watching the ESPN feed, the Met announcers just said that Collins is thinking of playing Recker a little more than he has. Keith Hernandez said he thought that was a good idea.
