The blast by Stanton was immense. I wish they talk to the mets this off season or the trade deadline for a trade involving him.

Judging by these spring games,this season is gonna suck once again,Mets can't score runs if their life depended on it!

The officiating in this game was appalling.

Any place to get the box score and/or a recap of the "B" game?

Looks to me as if Lagares and E. Young will both be getting playing time, just not simultaneously. My own opinion is that if Puello is having a very strong year, he is called up in July and Chris Young gets traded.

I wonder whats going to happen with Lagares, he clearly should be our every day CF and what if Puello proves he can hit in the big leagues? The guy has speed and defense also Power

So, let's see we have zero offensive production and we just sent a 22 yr old who is currently hitting .400 in ST, and hit 16 hr's, 108 hits, 73 rbi and stole 23 bases in just 91 games to minor league camp without even giving him a start in ST, while we continue to give guys like Den Decker, Kirk, Andrew Brown (who looks like a solid bench option and has been impressive) starts, amongst other guys that are bound to be career minor leaguers. 


Puello served his suspension, and came to camp looking huge, and putting great wood on the ball and Collins doesn't even try to play him. Do we really need to see him rake it in Vegas? We are contemplating batting a .200 hitter leadoff and we really are sending this guy down so quickly? This team baffles me.

Let's see, Mets lose 11-1, bloggers trying to explain it wasn't as bad as the score indicates.  Yup, everyone in mid season form.

So in other words Ryan Reid nailed down his spot in the bullpen.

Tejada is completely capable of hitting 4 singles a week, provided no one is on base.

Sigh. Look at the upside here folks. Colon threw four innings and did ok-i.e. he didn't hurt himself and got his work in. Not the end of the world-it's spring training!

I don't care about the game score.  Who played short and how did they do?

I think it's safe to say that Ried and Leathersich are out of the running for the major league team at this point.

Watching SNY and the top 10 Mets, where are our Reyes, our Beltran, Carter, our Strawberry, or our Piazza?

I think Stanton's HR is still orbiting Port St. Lucie

Marlins kick Mets' butts -- yep, sounds like we're ready for the season!

Im not even mad at Colon giving up 3 runs in 4 innings, Im mad that Colins left him in the game after 3 scoreless innings in his first spring outing

@grillruben  He will get his call up later this year or next, let him get his regular reps in a great hitting spot.  I sure do hope this kid is the real deal though, would be a big change for our lineup.

@grillruben Puello needs regular playing time. He is not going to supplant any of the current starting outfielders, hence he goes back to minor league camp and starts in the Las Vegas outfield come April. I believe you will still see Cesar in Citifield before this season is out, and I don't mean as a September callup.

@eric88  Except for, you know, LaTroy Hawkins, Scott Rice, Vic Black, and possibly Joel Carreno, or does reality not fit your worldview?

@Steven Matregrano  Umpires killed Colón. He pitched pretty well, especially considering it was his first outing.

So true! Was at the game , could'nt understand why he let him throw over 60 pitches

@ponzies86  You'd have to blame that more on the umps than on Terry.

Robert C. Smith

@ponzies86  A great point. The guy couldn't pitch until now, so Collins tries to get him to go four?!?? It's similar to what Collins did with Scott Atchinson last year; everyone knew he had a bum elbow, so instead of pitching the guy like a specialist, they'd run him out there for one or two innings. Collins might be a nice guy, but he's shown zero indication he has a feel for pitchers.

@ponzies86 terry is in midseason form already of mis managing the pitching

How could you not resign Hawkins for a couple of million dollars. He was serviceable, did a fine job in the closer role and was a role model for the young pitchers. A mistake!

Herb Goldstein
Herb Goldstein

@John Schod I think Alderson knows they overused Hawkins as a 40 year old last year. Did they make a mistake letting Pedro Feliciano walk? I've come to believe Alderson has pretty good judgement in these matters.

Agreed. The first base umpire killed him. But considering it was his first start I thought he did well. Certainly nothing to worry about

Miami has tons of quality young pitching. They would have zero interest in Bartolo Colon. And if Cecchini isn't even considered an option on a team starting Ruben Tejada then does he have any value. There is no matchup for a Met-Marlin Stanton deal.

@dannym28 @nolrog  what Danny meant was the trade talk starts with all three... Thor, Wheeler, AND Montero. Do that and Miami might start listening. Montero plus spare minor leaguers gets Sandy laughed out of the Cleveland night club that Stanton keeps hitting with his 450+ foot homers

dannym28
dannym28

@nolrog @dannym28  ill give up montero happily and i think we have what we have to get it done because loria traded reyes buehrle and jj for mid level guys, he didnt even get tda or thor. ill give puello in center grandy in left and stanton and right. 

nolrog

@dannym28 Yeah, that doesn't get it done.  Start with Wheeler, Thor and Montero and you'd have a decent start.
