6)  50% of all these goofy Sound Smart gimmicks have grammar mistakes that make them seem like they weren't even proofread.

Please don't use the word smart while not even having a mastery of the English language.

Mets are 0-3 versus lefty starters because they let Turner go and have no right handed bats. Maybe Chris Young will have an impact. Eric Young is not effective versus lefties unless they are wild. No Larges and Granderson is hopeless versus lefties. You get zero from SS. Where is the production going to come from? Why would you pitched to Wright versus the balance of this order?

@Chris Lyons  The 51s play out in the arid climate where ground balls take terrible hops. Not excusing his errors, but that has to be taken into account.

@Chris Lyons Are you posting this comment on every post? His bat alone is worth the errors in the ML level. He can flat out hit

@Chris Lyons Wait a sec....I don't think Flores can start at SS on the ML level, but you're judigng a guy transitioning to SS based on his error total?  C'mon....he's going to make a ton I'm sure but that's no way to judge this.

Also - is you brother really starting tonight vs the Mets?  I saw you post that somewhere yesterday.

So the Mets are 0-3 vs lefties cause they don't have Justin Turner, the fringest of major league players. Riiiight.

@mets1962  i looked up Grandy's 2012 stats, 195 SO's and 106RBi's. he seems to be on pace to hit the same strike out number this year too


swear the guy's only value is hitting fly balls with people on base to advance a base or score a run while he gets out all the time

That's just not true. There's a question if his bat even plays in the majors and further he may have the worst range in all of MLB.

@BringBackDaveTelghe  You mean the starting second baseman on the highest payroll team in baseball? Yeah he definitely is a fringe guy who wouldn't have added any value here.

@Ben Rafelson @BringBackDaveTelghe This may be one of the dumbest posts in the history of this site, which is saying something.

You're extolling a guy who is hitting .161 / .206 / .226 and for his career is a .257 / .319 / .357 hitter?  Who cares what team has them?  It's not like people are lining up to call the Dodgers a smartly run team.
