7-28 GDT vs. Phillies 


I know it's early, but this could possibly be Bartolo Colon's last Met start if he's gonna be traded.

Colon's numbers at Citi have been unreal this season for a 41 year old pitcher. An 8.67:1 K:BB ratio and a .593 OPS against. This could be the game we begin our ascent towards the .500 record I believe we'll finish the season with.

It's good to be back home, but I think this will be a tough homestand for us. I know it's the phillies, but we face Burnett, Hamels and Kendrick coming off a long road trip, and then have a 4 game series against 4 good giants pitchers for sure. Hope the offense wakes up, but I would impressed with 4-3.

They need a .544 winning percentage to finish 81-81. That's 31-26, or an 88-win pace. Not absurd, but slightly ambitious. I think going into next year they could certainly have 88-win talent, especially with a nice upgrade at SS and an acceptable stopgap in LF.

Yeah, given that we will probably be in audition mode in September, it's tough to ask for 31-26.

We just need some successful auditions. :)

If the Mets could fashion a trade for Alex Rios........would you pull the trigger?    Surely it would involve a legit pitching prospect.    But perhaps not a ton else.   He's got a relatively manageable contract that includes a 2015 team option.....which is not ridiculously expensive.....he'd cost less than Granderson and Wright per season.   


Interesting series for the Mets.........could officially knock the Phils out of contention, even though it is pretty much a done deal now.

Both starting pitchers could be changing teams after this game (or even before I suppose).

The pitching is up to it, but the offense will keep them from 31-26. They just don't hit enough on a daily basis.

I think the team will hit in spurts, so we may hit a spurt at some point that will get us up to .500, or maybe just above it, but ultimately, we'll regress a little back because the offense wont be consistent enough to win.

If Gee and Niese can get their act together, our chances are greater.  Wheeler and DeGrom have been almost automatic the last month, and Colon is always steady.

The dreaded sig of doom has chosen future hall of famer Jason Heyward as its target.

May the baseball gods have mercy on your soul!

5-5 on a road trip with 7 games against contenders, that's not bad. If they can come back and play well at home like before the break, that would be very encouraging.

They can take 2 of 3 against Philly. The tough one is going to be the 4 games against SF.

The Giants offense has been pretty terrible as of late.  They just got swept at home vs L.A.   Hoping they'll still be struggling when we meet them at Citi.

That might be because they just faced Greinke-Kershaw-Ryu and that lineup. Not bad.

We scored a total of 22 runs on the road trip.  It's pretty amazing that we won 5 games.  By comparison, thats the same as the Reds and they are 1-9 since the ASB, I think. But, I agree with scalper that we do tend to go in spurts and like we said, that was about as tough a road trip as you can have.  We flew all over the country and played 2 contending teams.

"The Mets posted a 5-5 trip despite failing to exceed three runs in any of the final nine games. If the Mets fail to reach four runs on Monday against the Phillies, it will become the longest streak of games producing three or fewer runs since 1981 (11 straight).

In the second half, the Mets are hitting .186 (60-for-322) and averaging 2.2 runs per game. Only the Cincinnati Reds are worse in those categories in the National League."

Hopefully Young will hit some more doubles tonight and some dumb team will trade a hidden gem for him.

Once again Flores is riding the pine. He will never get a chance here as long as Terry is the manager.
