Well, Jewish Heritage Day at Citi Field was surely a success, thanks to fellow member, Ike Davis. While the Mets have struggled for offense and flashed little to no power all season, Davis was the mench all Mets fans sorely needed this afternoon.
After hitting a bomb to the second deck in right field in the 4th inning to get the Mets on the board in the finale against the Astros, he sent the fans home plotzing, after launching his second shot of the day, to walk off with a Mets win. (more…)
The Mets had another tough loss last night to the Miami Marlins. Jon Niese pitched well aside from 1 bad inning, and the offense was making some noise, but unable to deliver when they really needed it.
The game, in my eyes, was lost in the bottom of the 5th inning when the Mets loaded the bases and were unable to plate any runners. I know hindsight is 20/20, but from the moment I saw Niese coming up to the batter’s box with 2 outs and the bases loaded, I knew the Mets were doomed.
What could Terry Collins have been thinking? (more…)
Well, Ike Davis had a great night. His 3 solo jacks sure were exciting, and that was about all that went right for the Mets in Arizona. That is pretty much all that has gone right for the Mets in Arizona since the emergence of Matt Harvey and his 11 strikeout performance in the first game of the series.
This Mets team continues their tailspin and there seems to be no end in sight. To top it all off we continue to go through the torture, the decomposition, the former power star who currently is an empty shell in the body of Jason Bay. In his final at bat, which I believe was in the 8th inning, the Mets had 2 men on and Bay came up with a chance to close the 3 run gap that the Mets faced. Yet he continues to look at strike after strike and appear completely lost. He appears lost, defeated, overmatched, all things that high priced major leaguers should not be looking like at 32 years old.
I got the feeling that with the way Bay looked in his last at-bat, not that it was any different than he has looked in his Mets tenure, he will not be seeing any significant playing time for a while. If now is not the time to make a change, then when? The team is going nowhere fast and Bay is not a part of this team’s future, so he shouldn’t be impacting their present. Alderson and Collins need to come together, and for the betterment of the team and the stomach of the fans, they need to put the best players on the field. Unfortunately, as hard as Bay hustles on a nightly basis, he is not that level of player any longer. With kids like Valdespin and Nieuwenhuis, the Mets need to be giving them a legitimate look on a regular basis and see what is in store for the next few years, not worry about contracts and money and Bay’s psyche, which has been a big bowl of mush since he arrived in New York.
