Game Recap: Phillies 6 – Mets 0

Result: The Mets were shut out on Tuesday night at the hands of the Philadelphia Phillies, 6-0,  at Citi Field.



Need to Know: The Phils socked three home runs, two of which came off Mets starter Dillon Gee. The big blow was Chase Utley’s seventh-inning grand slam off reliever Josh Edgin that gave the Phils a 6-0 advantage. Jimmy Rollins and Grady Sizemore each blasted solo homers, which was enough for Philadelphia starter, Cole Hamels.

Game Ball: Hamels, who tossed eight shutout innings and struck out eight while scattering six hits, picked up his sixth win of the season.

What’s Next: The Mets will send Zack Wheeler (5-8, 3.64) to the mound for a matinee, series finale against the Phils at 12:10 p.m. Philadelphia will counter with Kyle Kendrick (5-10, 4.87).

I blame those hideous orange jerseys for last night's awful performance.

yeah...throw in M D D to the Rockies and lets get Nieuwenhuis some real playing time. Why do we continue to waste time on CY and Abreu???  Oh wait...that's right....0-3 tonight gets you more playing time (CY)  and.......like 2 for 27 in pinch-hit situations for Abreu.....crazy!  Time to move Abreu out.....

The Rockies are going to need a pitcher got Thursday's game now that that days starter is pitching the 16th inning in Chicago....actually he just lost the game. Tulo for Carlos Torres straight up. Come on Sandy...get it done. You can even throw in den Decker if Colorado insists

Eric Campbell went 2-4 today. That deserves a benching tomorrow. Chris Young went 0-3. That deserves a start in LF tomorrow. Terry Collins logic is on point.

The best deal the Mets could make in the next 48 hours would be to find a new manager.

trade m d d while his value is high for cargo while his is low. M d d, niese, montero. Maybe a lower talent arm in a ball for cargo. would mets do it, absolutely. Will the rockies do it, doubt it. But the timing cant b more perfect.

I attended tonight's game and you could tell, even despite the early hits, that it wasn't going to be our night. After Hamels got ahead 2-0, it felt like 6-0 and then it was 6-0. The grand slam was the nail in the coffin, but we weren't winning this game when you have a very good pitcher like Hamels on the mound and in a groove. Win tomorrow with Wheeler and Duda and all will be well again.

Alderson may not see it, but this team deserves a vote of confidence from the front office that goes with bringing in a player right now. Even if it's not Tulor or Cargo, bring in some major league talent to help contribute and give the offense a boost. With our pitching (not tonight's pitching), we are capable of making a run at .500 and the wild card.

In other news, Rockies fans think Tulo is going. Good night Mets fans.

Watched the Utley Grand Slam again. You realize how many people are in the ballpark when they're all going "OHHHHH...." At the same time. Go get em In 12 hours

Well, 40 hours from now we'll either be talking about a new man in a Met jersey, a new man in a new jersey, or Ruben friggin Tejada's 0-3 day with 1 k, 1 double play and 1 walk and Collins goes crazy because HE GOT ON BASE!!

Last night Kemp would be the 8th or 9th outfielder on the Mets...and behind Andrew Brown no less. Tonight den Decker is a "decent outfielder". I love the Mets. I love Mets fans. I even love crazy people. Just not all at the same time!!!!

@metsfan7 I agree with you but I'd rather see Campbell play every day. The guy is batting 120 points higher than CY. But Sandy is gonna insist that Collins play him regardless. And this is on a team in DIRE need of offense. Abreu is toast. Cannot pinch-hit to save his life. Why is he still here?

not funny

@Hussein Charara Did you hear the pre-game show when he was asked why Ruben Tejada was startign over Flores, even after going 3 for his last 29?

I thought TC's head was going to explode...he got all kinds of mad saying how the team is playing better with Ruben Tejada in the lineup.

@moeb are you related to him or something? You keep posting how great den Decker is, yet you never once suggested that he be the bat that the Mets are looking for. Also, his value is high? I'll repeat this for you one again because apparently your eyes are dead.... HE'S IN AAA

@mystere24 I would love to have Marlon Byrd back over that stiff Chris Young who is getting an unGodly amount of playing time right now.

@moeb He's 26 and still in AAA playing a position of need for the Mets.....There your proof

matt kemp stinks for the money owed to him. Oh and he is injury prone

@moeb I don't get why anyone would want CarGo right now. His away split is just scary.


SPREAD THE WORD #METSTHETEAM4TULO

@moeb why would Colorado want den Decker? So your idea to get the bat we need is to throw a garbage outfielder into a trade with one legitimate prospect + a guy who was shutdown for a couple of weeks because his arm gets tired each year around the all star game?

moeb

And I know the rockies in any deal for cargo that they will want a major league readyplayer in our minors. Puello having a down year and brown doesnt fit that mold. I say it now while cargo stock is down and m d d stock is high. You have to admit that m d d is having a really good year and if my mets wont bring him up to play everyday then he is trade bait. Remember this: Buy low and sell high!

moeb

I just want to see the kid who is having a great " AAA" year get some run. Im not related but this front office dont play the hot hand. Watch how t.c bench campbell and play c.y today. I would scream to play m d d but I know he will rott up here on the bench. Plus cargo needs to b a met point blank period

robby

 @robby I would do it.  Not all of them of course.  We really need some bats

that shows more about our front office and not the talent of m d d. He can play if given a chance. More then a hanful of games

@moeb "for the money owed him" is correct. I'm not denying that. I'm saying that if he was on the Mets right now, he's our starting LFer

@Ian @moeb You remind me of that fan who changed her Twitter handle to something like @chenonmets only to see him go to Texas and suck

moeb
moeb

yea...cargo isnt having a good season AND he is always hurt. they get a decent o.f a pitcher who is good now and a young arm for there future.

@robby Maybe Syndergaard, Montero and Matz for Tulo and maybe a decent outfielder?

nym68
nym68

@moeb what has he done to prove he can play? You blame the front office, yet I haven't heard about any of the other 29 GM's beating down the Mets doors trying to pry the great M dD away from the Mets

moeb

cargo is a better trade than matt kemp is. I like cargo more than tulo and kemp. Gold glove with 30 plus home run bat. And his contract is only 3 years vs kemps 5 and tulo 6

nym68

@moeb decent OFfer? Good grief. The guy is playing in AAA while tree Mets need an outfielder. He's awful

robby

 @robby I like that trade.  We need to get offense into that lineup

never said he was...320 388 on base w>th great d is not worth it? who you think cargo can bring back, harvey wheeler and throw in syndergaard? get real

moeb

vegas is similar to colorado and he plays great d and 3 years younger. Plus cargo is not apart of colorado future and not many teams will look to add 17 mil per AND give up young talent. Rockies are not in a position of strength.

Ianonicon

@nym68 @moeb He'll probably hit .310 and 30 home runs with the Rockies though because of that mile high stadium.

@robby I read this conversation and thought "ok, these people seem to be in the ballpark of what Colorado probably wants. I'm sure they'd want some position prospects too, but not bad" then I realized I just watched one person have a conversation with themself on here

nym68

@moeb get real, huh? Did I ever offer up Harvey...or anyone for that matter? No I didn't. Go play awful fantasy GM somewhere else. You moron

nym68

@moeb Please trust me on this... I live in Vegas and I've been to a few Rockies home games. It's not the same. Besides even if it was....den Decker can't hit the friggin baseball! He is really good defensively I'll grant you that..but he's no Cargo. He's a backup outfielder at best. 

moeb

who are the mets competing with for cargo and den dekker needs to play everyday. He has skills but mets dont give there players pt that are raking in the minors. See flores for example

nym68
nym68

@Ian @nym68 @moeb he'd have to make contact first...which isn't very likely to happen considering he's a 26 year old minor leaguer. Sometimes people are in the minors for a reason

moeb
moeb

player a is always injured, having a down season and his team sucks. Who is gonna give anything more than my original offer. Niese montero and m d d. Im not saying m d d is gonna replace the production of cargo. but he is batting 320 with a 388 on base % 26 years old and a good glove.

cargo is getting paid the next 3 years. What would you ask for for cargo?

@Ian @nym68 @moeb my bad. I didn't look at your avitar when you said that. I thought you were the other person..the one who likes den Decker
