Terry Collins says that he's not thinking of platooning Ike Davis and Josh Satin at 1B this season. My question: why the hell not? How can he possibly keep a bat like Satin's on the bench against lefties? Does Terry seriously think that Ike has suddenly learned to hit southpaws? C'mon, TC, wake the frack up!

Eddie, while we both know that Satin has been a minor leaguer for his career, and he was never in the Met future plans, I agree that you can't be sitting him while he is this hot. Play him against lefthanders, and maybe not just at first. He plays second and the outfield as well. While they aren't going to contend for the playoffs, every win gets them closer to .500 and also gets the losing attitude out of the clubhouse and organization.
If I'm Collins, I'm looking to do whatever it takes to win games, not soothe Ike Davis' ego.

I agree that Satin has looked like a completely different player this time around. He has a great eye at the plate, a short, hard stroke, and he beats left-handers like a tom-tom. Ike is looking a bit better since his desert vacation, but I'll bet he's still going to look like a fool against southpaws. A Satin-Davis platoon makes the most sense here. The guy whom Satin has replaced is Lucas Duda; and I'll wager that even after he cools down a bit, Josh will still be a better offensive player than Lucas.

Another platoon should be Nieuwenhuis and Lagares. They are the best options to patrol CF and don't hit well against pitchers who throw from the same side of the plate as the batter. Andrew (friend of the Kingfish) Brown could be used to give Marlon Byrd an occasional breather in RF, leaving LF to Eric Young, the only legitimate leadoff candidate/base-stealing threat the Mets have.

And while I'm at it, let's just stick a fork in Shawn Marcum, call him well-done, and turn the #5 spot in the rotation over to Carlos Torres, who has earned a shot at a real job.

You guys are forgetting this team is playing for 2014 and beyond which is why I'm so excited. This is a most exciting time to be a Mets fan so stop complaining about this year. Just be thankful you're not a JUICKEES fan as they'll soon be in last place to stay for years... LMAO!

Yes, I agree. It looks to me like Duda is odd man out. Maybe an AL team needs a DH type, and that means Duda. He won't bring you anything in return, but he doesn't do enough to warrant hanging on to him.
Marcum should also be designated for assignment. Darling said it best last week when he commented, "The only guy who's job is safe is Wright."

I see David Wright is the NL captain of the upcoming HR derby. Great player; but he can't hit one out of Citi. My money is on Cano

Gutsy win for the kids last night who seem to be jelling on the road, a sure sign of great things to come. Harvey looked just average last night...for him anyway. He'll get one more start before the break then start the all-star game. For those of you sitting on the edge of your seat Collins was informed by Bochy two weeks ago that Matt would be getting the well deserved start...after all he's the best in the game

MMH: As you know, when you pitch, you win. If the Mets continue to build up the pitching staff, as I'm sure they will,along with a couple of bats, they will be very competitive. They are getting closer and closer. They are going about it in the right way, this time around.

Agreed. The best road to championships is to construct a strong stable of SPs. In 1969, it was Seaver, Koosman and Gentry, supplemented by guys like McAndrew, Cardwell and a fellow named Nolan Ryan. In 1986, there was Gooden, Darling, Fernandez and Ojeda, plus Aguilera in spots. Looking ahead, I can foresee a Mets rotation of Harvey, Wheeler, Syndergaard, Niese and Hefner, which leaves Gee and Montero as trade bait. We all need to hope for continued development of these assets.

In the fifties it was Newcombe,Podres,Erskine, Koufax,J.Black.Believe Mets are convinced, building from within is the best way to go. The wife and I have become Rays fans and enjoy the success they have enjoyed,attributable to their pitching staff. I do a little posting on their forum and as usual I preach pitching as the top priority to winning.
