Mets Game As Pointless As Keith Reading The Media Guide

The Mets had Jose Reyes at third base, Ty Kelly in left field, and Drew Gagnon on the mound. Put another way, this was going to be a completely pointless game for a Mets team 16 games under .500.

Here’s how pointless this 7-3 game was – Keith Hernandez was reading passages from the Mets media guide about the Mets Hall of Famers.

The best thing from this game was Amed Rosario going 3-4 with two runs, two triples, and an RBI. What’s shocking is both triples were to left.

Tyler Bashlor allowed just one run on three hits in 2.1 innings.

P.J. Conlon pitched two scoreless while striking out three.

Dominic Smith singled in his only at-bat.

Perhaps most important, Wilmer Flores made an impressive play in the field.

With the score already 5-0, Scott Kingery popped up to shallow right. Flores made an over the shoulder catch and threw home to nail Carlos Santana to double him up.

It was a terrific play in a lost game in a lost season. Flores still cares. Be very careful before you trade him.

Game Notes: Mets are 0-13-2 in their last 15 series.

    Mets were 19-15 when they traded Harvey?
    18-36 since or .333 ball?
    What happen to team injuries, leadership or chemistry?
    maybe nothing in the chemistry question?
    Well the White Sox play at .330 and yes the Royals who were also in the 2015 World Series are not playing as well as the Mets nor are the Baltimore Orioles.

      18-38 since Harvey deal….
      If they re-sign this catcher?

        Mesoraco is one of the guys who has played a role in their being 20 games under during this stretch

    2. metsdaddy says:

      That’s part of the point about Harvey. One of the justifications was to get rid of the distractions. Turns out that wasn’t the case.

  2. Gothamist says:

    It smells like they must trade up to four of the original 2018 starting pitchers.

    It just is not fair to them to have these other players in the lineup.

    Can they bring in future players in one clean swoop?

    Doubtful that ever happens.

    Are there enough scouts to be in the know about so many players in the MLB and A AAA AAA?

    They will get far more on average on deadline deals, can they shoot very high on their trade demands and if the suitor agrees then pull the trigger?

    Have Wheeler and Matz proved high value?

    I would be OK having them at the top of the rotation.

    1. Blu2MileHigh says:

      The Mets are not even close.

      Rosario, Conforto, Nimmo and Smith are not Bryant, Baez, Almora and Swarber.
      The Cub’s signed Contreras, Heyward, the rare breed himself Ben Zobrist, they stole Rizzo and drafted another kid two years ago.
      That is Cubs 9 and the Mets …. ?
      The Mets are not close!
      This is de Grom’s peak value

      1. metsdaddy says:

        The Mets have deGrom, Syndergaard, Matz, and Wheeler.

        Also, you’re really over selling the Cubs guys

    2. metsdaddy says:

      If you have this pitching and this free agent class, selling is inexcusable
