Chris Young watching the ball too long on a play to second base...lol..what a great player

That wasn't a very pleasant spectacle.  So much for winning this game for Wright tonight.  Mets back in 4th place now and dropped a game to Wash too, so 9 out.

Besides Trumbo, the only FA OF I think is intriguing is Melky, who somebody mentioned today. Not the huge power hitter we need, but a good RBI man and a Switcher. Will cost a lot more though.

I think This season is lost... So sad when it looked like there was a chance of a turnaround just can't get your hopes up too high I guess

Gary Payton=the glove, Jay Payton= the strikeout

Anyone else notice the Mariners don't hit like a Moneyball team? They just see it and hit it. Very refreshing to watch. Too bad we can't have their hitting coach.

If they want to speed up the time of games, we could always bat eight people and give an automatic out every time CY's turn comes around.

Six outfielders and one SS and Chris Young is in the lineup tonight, when we can't score runs.  Uggla got cut, when Atl owes him something like 19 mil and we owe Young about 3.  FO was delusional thinking they could trade Young and now keeps him and leaves TC to deal with it and lose more games.  Atl recognized that they were being hurt missing the roster spot with Uggla and the Mets don't get it.

CY just assumed a hit instead of "smelling" one....and he got thrown out for it.   in the 8th inning of a game where if he gets on the tying run comes to the plate.  He's a lazy player, and i'm really done with him

I have been watching the mets for 25 years. 3 playoff appearances. So sick of it. A league that has no salary cap and we are a New York team. And we stink 90 percent of the time. Absurd. Tired of waiting for next year. I've had enough. Didn't even watch the game, just checked the score. Get rid of the whole damn team already. Keep lagares wright granderson Harvey degrom and wheeler. Ship out everyone else. Make a statement for once. Smh

You know, what are the RF FA prospects looking like?  I'd really like to move Grandy's arm over to LF

@cyrus Now, Alderson has his justification for not being a buyer.  They're 9 out and unless they win the next 6 and both Atl and Wash lose at least 5, Alderson's not going to bother.  He wants more young prospects, I suppose - to dump salary, which he may do at the deadline or in August.  Just don't trade Murphy, I say.

@cyrus everything is purely speculation. Although, it is still kinda early for any big deals to go down.

@jenkins If he's gonna hit like he's hitting in Toronto, i'll take it and live with the defense.  Lagares will just have to keep his legs in shape.  any interest in Alex Rios or Seth Smith?  You are right, there is NOTHING on the FA market this off season...

Only a fool would actually think was a chance at any point this season.

@cyrus they really have to make just 3 good moves and they'll be contenders next year. Don't quit now.

@C.K. Dexter Haven if they get a real RH hitter for LF, they could use denDekker and Niewenhuis for defense late. 3 CFs

What's the deal with Stanton?

@imjimmybx Your an idiot, go back to your Yankees blog.

@C.K. Dexter Haven @jenkins I'd say no on Rios. I like Smith,but don't want another LH bat.


We can get Trumbo. He's in arbitration next 2 years and Ariz isn't married to him. They'd love Murohy hitting in front of Goldschmidt. If we had to throw in Montero-do it.


But agree, Melky has been hitting and teammates love him

@jenkins  Gonna have to eat up a few of these pitchers....can't have a 9 man rotation.  No matter who gets shipped out, fans are going to HATE it

@Zott Not sure what happens in the off season, but Miami GM already said he's not moving Stanton or McGhee at the deadline.  Stanton would get Wright back to the 25 HR area, but...I just can't see ever getting Stanton.  Miami doesn't need pitching.

shinjoooo

It would take at least Syndergaard, Plawecki, Nimmo and Smith for Stanton....which I would do btw.

@imjimmybx Yes the truth does hurt that your an idiot and a Yankees fan.

@jenkins Think Plawecki might have some value too.  TDA looks like he's getting his game together.  And since he's 25, Plawecki would be blocked.  My only fear is trading in talent requires PAYING that talent.  Makes NO sense to trade away high end prospects for guys they have no money to re-sign/extend
