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
