Lester to the Pirates for Alvarez and Tabata


love it for the Red Soxs if Lester comes back to them this offseason

good move for Pirates as they needed rotation help, Harrison can handle duties at 3B


another note: 

Valdy playing well

guy can def hit

To Jimmy Bronx--Flores is a better player than David Wright! Really?

Herrera had another good day in Binghamton 1-3 homer 2 RBI and a walk. There's no reason he shouldn't given a shot at second base next spring.

it would be refreshing if the mets made a couple moves at the trading deadline. like release abreu and chris young. deal colon and murphy. at least try and mix things up and acquire some better players by involving montero or syndergaard in a deal. i mean if we are going to lose with this team anyway, can we at least mix things up for once?

We need some left hand relievers...don't think Edgin or Eveland are very good

Good night for Flores, 1 for 3 off Hamels and no errors.

Mets had won 5 of the last 7, and Duda has had rbis in 6 of them (rbis in the last 5,) so of course you don't play him. I realize his numbers against lefties are rough, but when you're that hot, you play every day.

@Kevin VanTassell i agree. he probably needed the rest tho. everyone needs an off day once in a while. i'm guessing that was what collins was thinking

@Zott At this point just so we can all stop hearing about it, they need to play him.  I've never heard of so much attention being paid to who hits 8th.

@eric88 @cyrus Because the Mets like believing in the players they predict will do okay and grab onto them no matter what.

 @eric88 @Kevin VanTassell Because the guy can't hit, run, has no range, has gaffs all over the place, but still starts every game and Terry talks him up in every interview on the subject, that's why.
