Time Out

Thursday, July 26th, 2012

Holy Crap things have gotten bad in a hurry. We need a day off so desperately it’s not even funny.

Hefner vs Strasberg simply isn’t a fair fight so it’s tough to expect the Mets to win that game bur right now it’s hard to imagine them ever winning again.

But the truth is these Mets over performed in the first half of the season. We all knew we weren’t that good headed into the year but it’s hard not to get caught up in the hype when TC’s guys are balling out and grinding out W’s.

Still the fact remains we’re a team in the middle of a rebuilding phase and those teams don’t just magically win.

We all know big money contracts and preseason hype don’t equate to wins, just ask Philly and Miami, but you don’t generally win in year 2 of a 5 year rebuilding phase either.

Look Out Below!

Damn, things sure did go south in a hurry. 

The Mets are officially in free fall, 10.5 games out of 1st 6 out of the WC and just 3.5 away from last place.

Duda got demoted… RA continues to be awfully hittable… Torres is a disaster… Bay is Bay… 

It’s shocking to see the pen post 3 shutout frames

But  possibly most shocking of all Jordany Valdespin isn’t in the starting line-up on a daily basis. 

I don’t blame for TC for wanting to save Jordany to PH, since he hits a HR pretty much every time, but the kid deserves steady AB’s. The team is dying in front of our eyes and CF has become a black hole for offense.

I understand if they need to give Bay a chance to magically recover his stroke. Bay has a major contract and simply put that buys you damn near unlimited time to bounce back. 

The same cannot be said regarding Andres Torres’ contract.

Valdespin needs to start everyday - END of STORY

You gotta be freakin’ kidding me. ANOTHER extra inning loss thanks to a bullpen meltdown?!?!?

This pen is AWFUL. Chris Young over came a 2 run blast in the 1st to post a fantastic outing allowing just those 2 runs across 7 while uncharacteristically K-ing 7.

But the O couldn’t manage to take a lead and Beato’s blow up sent him back to AAA. 

I swear I woulda sent Duda down. This guy needs to get his swagger back. He’s been silent for what seems like months.

But the pen is ultimately our downfall this season.

And it’s obviously taken its toll on the team. I would expect the free fall to continue for a while.

Pre-season BMF predicted 83 wins… Thats feeling like an awful lot right now.

The yankees got Ichiro? Wow, i’m sure he’ll go off in the BX.
