den Dekker's and Lagares' defense is 1 and 1A, so i'd prefer if den Dekker started while Lagares is out.  Move CY to LF where he can do the least damage.  I'm resigned to the idea that we are stuck with CY getting regular ABs.  The least they can do is not put him in positions to hurt the team...

Have a day Flores...Have a day!

Flores is a 22 year old top prospect. He has to play EVERYDAY, not once a week. He has big upside. TC has to messing with this kid. Tejada would be a decent backup infielder. That's his level. Come on Terry, let's be smart about this.

Bobby O knocking Sandberg.  LOL,  He did make some curious decisions during this series.  I never like to see anybody get hurt, but was anything funnier than the Manship AB a couple of days ago?

I paused the game earlier and just came back to Flores's AB, and as Keith would say "Oh my word".  And what can we say about our Pen.  Has to be best in the League last 75 inn or so.  Great starting pitching, relief pitching and now with Lamar's tutelage.  Looking good boys in blue, looking good.  I'd love to hear what some of the players have said about what Lamar has said to each or all of them.  It has to be something serious, that made something click for each and every player.

Den Dekker is still the MVP of this game.. took the air out of the phillies sail time after time

Outstanding game and outstanding series.

It gives a little room for optimism and there's a chance we can at least enjoy games late in the summer with this pitching staff and payroll flexibility (laugh all you want).

However...gotta win the series vs the Cubs and win at least a game in SF...

Colon's 2 seamer is MOVING these days.  Another nice outing by the Mets starters in this bandbox (although i don't think the ball carried well this series at all)

Agree completely. Flores might not hack it at ss but he's so much better then Tejada..and 2 days of line drives doesn't turn me around on Tejada.

Play Flores and Duda every day for a week, don't protect vs lefties for Duda right now and get him out of his groove. Campbell sucks and is a marginal upgrade at best.

@eric88


Wilmer definitely has pop.  Pop we haven't seen on a regular basis in some time.  I think if he plays more, he'll hit more.

@eric88 Oops sorry. Smart and Terry in a sentence does not compute. I agree - I feel that was about Campbell as well. With Juan on the DL - let Grandy play some CF and let Campbell play Left and get more at bats! GO METS!

I would've agreed with you 2 weeks ago, but this competition from the two has given us something to smile about at SS.  I say let TC ride out this comp/platoon.

@1harris1 His team normally plays a shift on Grandy.  The bases are loaded with 1 out.  Why is he playing the entire infield in??  corners in, middle half way he's got a shot at ending the inning on Grandy's groundball.  And if you were just going to play them in anyway, why the hell did he pitch around Wright?  Just to get the lefty on lefty?  odd management....

@Victor Triguero Listen, you know i feel that Tejada is the better option of the 2 of them, but I HOPE no one feels that HR wasn't significant.  Don't get me wrong, Sandberg helped the Mets put this game away, but you could just see the air and the energy leave the stadium (along with much of the paying crowd) when Flores' HR landed.  There was no fight left to put up in the bottom half....

Crushing a team also is just a confidence booster for the whole team

@Victor Triguero Literally every player is going to be until at least another year or 2 - most guys drafted don't come up until a couple years in

Flores had a great game. But if Tejada starts tomorrow remember he's 9-19 in the last five games. He has been doing quite well lately.

@kingman76  Fair point.  I'm not a fan of bringing the fences in further, but that's a fair point.  Here and in NYS the starters held their own.
