Back in the day losing 2 of the first 3 in a 4 game set was not considered a "slump".  For sure Baltimore is a weaker team but they are still major leaguers, we win today and we split a series.  These baseball seasons are like a very long race.  I think I may be in the presence of a young generation here!  You kids need to learn to be patient!




I remember those simpler times too. 8 team leagues, no wild cards or layered playoffs. This is a different game now, and this year is especially differennt if they lose the division to the Red Sox. That sets up a 1 game playoff to get into the playoffs most likely with the Mariners and against James Paxton. This team can win 105 games and end up going home and not making the playoffs. That's why these regular season games are so important. 




So many things can happen at this point - maybe we fight for the division, maybe we fight for the wild card, maybe Seattle has to use their Ace on the last day of the season just to win a wild card or division.  Maybe we run away wit the division and win by 8 games.  It's all good problems to have!  Better than the Mets who have to ask themselves "which Ace do I deal as we rebuild and start all over?"




Yes we can speculate all we can until the cows come home what will happen the rest of the season and we all have our opinions but at this point I guess we have to let it play out. And another variable is who does what by the trading deadline. The rosters might look different on August 1.


And as for the Mets Beningo and Roberts were having a discussion the other day. Saying the Mets have three ways to go to try to turn things around. Number 1 is start spending in the expensive stores and go for the top free agents. Number 2 is to trade their best assets meaning deGrom and Syndergaard and try to commit to a rebuild. And number 3 is to try to bandaid things together to try to put a decent team on the field. They said the Mets will choose door number 3 and I agree because that is the Mets mindset. They won't ever have a top 5 payroll so forget number 1. And since they are competing with the Yankees they would likely not choose number 2. And even though it has failed before especially this season when things could not have worked out worse the Mets in all likelihood will go for door number 3. Insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results. This is like having a house that is completely falling apart and you need to knock it down and build a new one but instead keep on trying to patch it together. Number 3 is probably long term the Mets worst choice but it is likely the way they will go.   




wow there's a "novel" idea - letting it play out. how bout that ...


yes we can all speculate which is all you do and always the worst case scenario.


btw solved your problem. stop listening to sports radio. it causes brain rot ...

Why do you think we care about what the Mets are doing?

Bumper, it's become a fine art to be able to fish through all of the media BS to try and get useful information.
