This guy is a racist piece of trash. A failed baseball wannabe who now mows lawns for a living.

Ignore Jimmy. He is mad that he is fat, bald, Mexican, and he sucked at baseball

Here's a "funny" and racist jimmyism for everyone before they leave this wonderful evening:


"Nah, Casper. Much like I don't expect you to know how it feels to hit a baseball travelling 85mph over 400 feet, I don't expect you to see things through the eyes of an athlete nor a Latino.


See, you're dealing with a different type of blogger here. A guy who played semi-pro ball. A guy who knows ALL about racism growing up in the Bronx. Things you wouldn't know about. I'm so many levels above you, if I were to try and spit in your face, it would take my saliva 3 days to travel down and hit you in your face...lol


Whether you like my politics or not, racism will NOT be tolerated while I'm here. And that goes for the owner of the blog and his minions as well."

I track the Farm almost as close as ML and liked (not loved) JLag as a nice player, but ironically because he did flash a hit tool. I NEVER thought best fielder in the league, but he does have greater offensive potential than anyone gives him credit for. I think he will improve offensively and become a top all around CF

Flores looks like a 4a player. Getting his chances but no power and his hits have been weak singles.

Will TC manage the Mets in 2015?

I don't know why Lagares did not have a decent rep as a hitter. He hit .350 at Bingo in '11 I believe. His minor league numbers were good.

Good grief, behave yourself.

He could probably benefit by adopting closer repertoire and not feel obligated to use more than 2-3 pitches, but it is nice to see him back up to 94-96, which he had lost as a starter. Just as I say that, he uses all four pitches to whiff a batter

If they don't add some talent will it matter?

Why can't you just admit that Flores has looked terrible at the plate. He's done nothing. But unlike you I don't root agst players at all and certainly not based upon color.

If Harvey's coming back he should finish 75-87in 2015

You remind me of the racist white kids that play call of duty. Just like them u will never confront a person of color because you're not man enough

They'll have no offense without upgrades. With this lineup it won't matter who's in charge.

@jimsteele  @mets74 JIM!

I give him credit all the time when he he does some thing. I have said repeatedly his defense has been better than advertised. But for a guy known for his bat, he's shown nothing. And it's not personal at all. I posted the same thing after his debut last year. I thought his swing was weak and still do. And by the way my three favorite mets of all time are Doc, Fonzie and the Kid, so I am not biased agst Latinos.

Backman will prob have them 87-75 with a healthy Harvey same offense

@mrgee Probably got this confused with his weekly D&D get together (no disrespect to other D&D players).

Don't try to be rational, it won't work around here.

Ridiculous. A manager can have an impact, but a 15 game swing? Not without needles. The Mets scored 8 tonite, so using this blogs logic, TC should get an extension because everyone knows that the outcome of one game determines the value of a manager.

If it was only so easy as replacing the manager; the Yanks spent a half a billion dollars this off season and are clawing for a playoff spot. The success everyone craves is not that simple to achieve.

mankowski

No manager will matter unless they add hitting and find a way to field.

@jimsteele @mets74 You missed some fun. What I have learned tonight:

Jimmy is: 

A) A racist

B) If people don't follow his beliefs, he wants them eradicated.

C) Believe people are out to get him

D) Is comparable to Muhammed Ali and Michael Jordan (in his mind)

E) Wants to spit on me

and I am


A) A porky fat kid

What hitters you're talking about

mankowski
mankowski

Castro at short. A contact hitting left fielder. Then if, and I know it's a big if, Wright bounces back and Granderson hits, and Duda continues they'll score some runs.

But if they don't improve then the manager will lose 88 games.

I think DW rebounds to respectability, don't know (but hopefully) so does Grandy, who knows what happens with SS, but don't get your hopes up about outside solution to LF with Conforto and Nimmo on the rise in 2 years.
