Gee Rocks!

It’s getting serious with Dillon Gee. 

The kid moved to 6-0 on the season after firing 7 shutout innings allowing just 4 hits and 2 walks with 2 K’s.

It’s hard to think of a quieter 6-0 for an MLB rookie but Gee is now the only rookie starter to go 6-0 in Mets history.

With Gee and Niese, and possibly Pelfrey, the Mets sure do have some good lookin young guns.

And again regardless of what happens this season in the standings, and it ain’t gonna be pretty, Alderson has some solid arms for the ‘11 rotation.

It was great to see the pen hold for a change but Reyes had the big hit a bases loaded triple to plate 3 and give us a 4-0 lead. 

Reyes continues to rake and drive up his price. I’m sorry but the Wilpons, those boobs, are gonna have to bite the bullet and pay this kid.

    hey BMF let’s not forget…it was Jason Bay’s grounder to short that started it all.

    Gee continued to be brilliant and Reyes came up big. But, let’s give credit where credit is due.

    If they had plans on keeping Reyes, don ‘t you think they would have told somebody, especially him!

    I doubt it!

    FMFR - maybe I’m just snake bit fan but, do you think Reyes or any professional athlete with an agent is going to leave $$ on the table to stay with his home team? I’ve only seen it a few times, Paul O’Neil took a pay cut to remain a Yankee - that is the most recent one I know.

    The love is probably not mutual, there won’t be a ‘home team discount’. Some GM will give Reyes his big pay day. They will overpay. And Reyes’s kids, and his kid’s kids will be set for life. Hard to blame him…but I seriously doubt that GM will be Sandy Alderson.

    Gee has been awesome…. now getting back to Bay:

    If you read Bay’s quotes in the newspaper, you would think that he is in some two week slump, not the 2 YEAR SLUMP he has been in. When this much time has gone by and the guy can’t even come close to hitting, never mind hitting for power, it tells me that he is DONE. I wish he wasn’t because the Bay we thought we were getting would add a ton to the lineup but this guy has nothing left.

    It is time to sit him. He adds nothing to the lineup. I rather have Fernando Martinez in there or even Harris as crazy as that sounds. We are waiting and waiting for Bay to perform the way you watch a once great boxer show something in the ring, not wanting to admit he has nothing left.

    At least TC finally dropped him to 6th in the order although, the move was a little late and 8th would’ve been better.

    Since this season is lost and the kids are getting tons of playing time anyway, why wouldn’t the Mets keep rolling Bay out there and hoping he regains his form? I know it’s painful but it makes sense. Remember, in each of the previous two years, Big Papi was DONE and then rebounded to have pretty good years. But hey, what do I know, I think Reyes is worth signing but when he commits an error I’m informed he’s clearly not great and stats can’t prove otherwise.

  7. Fort Greene Met Fan Says:

    Yeah, BJake is right—as painful as it is to watch Bay, the Mets aren’t losing anything by putting him out there every day (except games, ha!). Let’s remember that we don’t exactly have any power hitters in AAA ready to take over left. FMart? Still not convinced he can hit big league pitching with consistency or stay healthy. In any case he is still pretty young so there’s no rush.

    I think losing Reyes would be a blow psychologically to a fan base that is already so traumatized by the past several years. HE is quickly becoming the REAL “face of the franchise”whether they can afford to keep him or not.

    Gee has been terrific—shows how much pitching is a mental game, and you can have good stuff but without the gutty mentality, it doesn’t matter. I really feel like Pelf is going the way of OP, crazier and less predictable with every start.

    I’m very glad to see Pagan back in form and not waving like he was before the DL. I want him to succeed.

    Anyway, I can’t get too hysterical about this season—basically what I expected, including bizarre injuries and the usual pointless media drama and endless conjecture about trades. We are getting to see the kids play, and we have some good kids! TC is doing a good job getting the team to stay in it until the end every night, and while he may not be a brilliant manager, I like him better than Willie or Jerry so far. Now that he seems ready to throw out the rule book and not rely on the matchup etc, he could get interesting. He may be exactly the right type of guy to train young players to play the game the right way—but that doesn’t happen overnight. Let’s face it, these aren’t exactly Rhodes scholars out there (esp now that Young is gone)—they may not learn too fast.

    Now let’s see what Sandy can do in the front office and what kind of budget he has.

    I agree with BJake, it’s not like we’re going to contend for anything (except not worst place) keep putting bay out there, maybe it the 7, 8 or even 9 hole and see what happens. If anything he reverts to his Boston / Pittsburgh days. As long as we hover around the .500 mark I’ll be happy. Its the moves made this coming off-season that are going to tell us where the team is headed. I’ve at least started to hear that the Mets will make “legitimate” offers to Reyes come the end of the season. Not much, but its better than just letting him walk. Now lets take 2 of 3 from the Bravos!


  9. BrooklynBill Says:

    Bay can’t go to the bench, not for the $$ he is being paid. But he doesn’t need to repeatedly kill us by coming up small in the 4th or 5th spot of the lineup. It was about time TC moved him down…two more notches would’ve been better!

    Let’s see…maybe this light’s a fire in his fanny, could be the wake-up call he needed. I guess what is somewhat frustrating is that even with the injuries we’ve sustained maybe we could be over the .500 hump if only we were getting some of the consistent production out of LF we thought we were getting when we signed him.
