Hey Pete how goes it down there. You're darn right it does. Pitching always has to be the number one concern for a ball team. Hitting is good too but if you can't get outs you don't win games.

I do a little posting on their forum and as usual I preach pitching as the top priority to winning.
As usual Pete you know only too well that pitching is the top priority and Tampa Bay made it to the 08 series on a strong staff.

Just a huge public disgrace last nite in the BIG CITI. I was never more embarrased to be a fan or be inside the stadium. The hole tribute thing with his gay dirtbag heavy medal music was a disgrace. His music is for lowlife punks. The BIG CITI will no longer get 1 dime from me

Fellow Met fans what a great night for the Mets and the city of New York last night, a preview of what the BIG CITI will be like by the end of this year and for many years to come. The organization was total class last night playing Enter Sandman for Rivera as he came in the game to get 'the hold' for Jim Leyland who was taking no chances with him after witnessing his meltdown in the BIG CITI earlier this year during the Mets 4 game sweep. The Mets waited on the reaction of the crowd during introductions and when boos could be heard then decided to go with Enter Sandman as loud as possible drowning them out for his meaningless entrance into the game...a class move by the organization.....Leyland believes his Tigers are overwhelming favorites to win the AL and went all out for the win using the best closer in the league this year, Joe Nathan, to finish. It was nice of MLB to throw a final bone to Rivera as it being the last time he'll pitch in a game getting national attention giving him the MVP over the great Miquel Cabrera who was totally deserving with his all around play. All in all a great 4 days in the ballpark topped off with a great showing by the Mets and the Mets brass.....Kudos to us

This annual post-ASG fold job by the Mets is getting downright annoying. The first three innings last night were a disgrace. Did the Mets' players spend the entire ASG break at Dunkin' Donuts? They certainly played as if they had.

Why is it that the Mets' pitchers can't hit the catcher's target after an extra day or two of rest while the hurlers on other teams seem to do it quite well? Why did Omar Quintanilla suddenly forget how to catch and throw a baseball during the break? The Mets' first five innings were a clinic on how NOT to play the game. The second half of the game was somewhat better, probably because all the Phillies were exhausted from sprinting around the bases at Citi during the first part.

Ike Davis has improved slightly with the bat, but he's still hitting the ball too far out in front of his body. This is easy to correct: he needs to practice trying to hit the ball up the middle or to the left side. He already has the ability to get around on MLB fastballs. I'm not sure if he's stubborn or just plain stupid. Time will tell.

The Mets' newfound success against left-handers can largely attributed to the presence of Josh Satin and Juan Lagares in the lineup. Speaking of Lagares, has anyone else noticed a similarity in the way he patrols CF and the style of Andruw Jones?

Just askin'.

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.

Just saw this one Eddie but Rafael Montero is just about as untouchable as Harvey. The kids that good, he's a strike throwing location machine he's so good that Wrights on record as saying he's the best pitcher in the Mets system, and that comment was made before Harvey made the big club . Sandy will have to be 200 percent convinced that a trade including him will be an overwhelming success for the Mets future for years and years

Yeah, I know it's only one ball game, but Jenrry Mejia looked absolutely terrific today. All we had ever heard about was his 94-mph cutter; no one said very much about his breaking pitches, which today were devastating to Washington batters. It's hard to say if it was a slider, a splitter or a straight change, but whatever it was that he was throwing was in the 83-85 mph range and broke straight down! Jenrry didn't look anything like the youngster who was up with the club in '10-'11. He completely dominated after the first two innings.

Gary and Ron spoke about possible plans for the Mets to resort to a six-man rotation in order to space out the starts for Harvey and Wheeler the rest of the season. Mejia looks like the perfect guy to take the # 6 spot.

Maybe he replaces Hefner? That little hot streak he had is over and he once again looks like he is better suited for long relief. I know thy aren't winning anything this year but they are a fun group to watch. They bounce back from terrible losses (2-1 to Atlanta, they don't rollover for anyone and they have youth for the future. They will win 50, they will lose 50 (already have 52) I just hope they do well enough in the other 62 or so to give us a little glimpse of a positive future.
