Mets need to get even against the Marlins since we're 8-11 in 2013. We have good pitching, we just need to hit better.

Sandy, Now is the time to get the SS. Your payroll is down to 78.7 million after the IKE trade, lets go!

If holiday doesn't rob that homerun maybe we sweep this team. Marlins scare me but we rolling so 2 outta 3 is likely. 12-10 is good but I want more. Lets go Mets

3 out of 4 from the Cardinals, this was actually impressive. Now the real test will be if they can finally start beating the Marlins... If we ever get a SS this team will surprise a lot of people with its pitching.

Now we can't lay up a dud against the marlins... The time is now to finally stand up and not let that crappy team beat on us anymore...

I do wonder if Mejia keeps this up should they try to package Gee or Wheeler as part of a deal for a big bat?

And this is a starting rotation without Harvey and Thor. I can't even imagine...

Soooo, it's closer by committee is it?  Ok, might actually work in their favor

Nice win, nice series win despite the useless Duda. Probably will get swept by the Marlins though.

@eric88I think they will try to get Asdrubal Cabrera next offseason

@Kyle Ely I would do that. Wheeler is expendable to me at this point with mejia and neise pitching the way they are.  With Thor, Harvey, and Montero waiting in the wings? Nasty stuff right there with 


Harvey

Neise 

Thor

Montaro

Mejia

@C.K. Dexter Haven Well Farnsworth's the closer but he can't pitch more than 2 games in a row and perhaps judging off today can't pitch in day game after night game either. So on days he's not available I guess it might be by committee but it looks like Dice K for now may be the next option there for now

It's actually wheeler tomorrow! I find it funny cause if it was Harvey, you probably wouldn't have mixed them up, but it's ok because even Gary Cohen did the same last week in a post game.

The useless Duda homered last night. You know that players don't all have to contribute every game right?

@Mets0987 We also swept the yankees at home last summer...remember what happened the very next series versus the Marlins?

It's all about when you catch a team. They'll have to hit this weekend.

@Thomas McKeever @Kyle Ely  I wouldn't be so quick to call Wheeler expendable. I would rather keep Wheeler and trade someone else. 

lindro88
lindro88

Me too. If we can't have a guy who throws 97, I'd rather have a guy with the array of pitches Dice K has.

Every team is dangerous. We caught the Cards when they aren't hitting. That being said, we aren't hitting either. We actually played better D, and got better pitching than they did. That's not something we've seen often. This is a series the Cardinals win 3 of 4 last year.

@Kyle Ely @metsjetsdu  I won't argue there, but almost anything is a major upgrade over Tejada. Would be nice if we acted like a major market team and made a play at Hanley but that won't happen. 

metsjetsdu

@Kyle Ely  right  and hes just OK. Would rather try and make a trade. If he is last resort , so be it.

@metsjetsdu @Kyle Ely@eric88He is the best SS in FA next year that the mets could get

That's more realistic. I love Cargo. He is injury prone, but would be a great addition. Honestly, I think they are in decent shape in the outfield. They need a shortstop.

That would get Sandy hung up on. Stanton is killing it this yr. he's got some bats around him now. Any conversation would start with Syndergaard.

It's just a strange post. They won today, be happy
