August 15th, 2014: Mets vs. Cubs, Wheeler-Wood 7:10 PM 



Mets Cubs
1. Curtis Granderson – RF 1. Chris Coghlan – LF
2. Daniel Murphy – 2B 2. Javier Baez – 2B
3. David Wright – 3B 3. Anthony Rizzo – 1B
4. Lucas Duda – 1B 4. Starlin Castro – SS
5. Travis d’Arnaud – C 5. Welington Castillo – C
6. Eric Campbell – LF 6. Arismendy Alcantara – CF
7. Juan Lagares – CF 7. Ryan Sweeney – RF
8. Wilmer Flores – SS 8. Chris Valaika – R
9. Zack Wheeler – RHP 9. Travis Wood – RHP

Travis Wood has pitched well in the month of August, but overall has had a very disappointing season. He still offers a decent K/9 of 7.8, but he is walking nearly 4 batters per 9 innings and he has a hideous 6.11 ERA on the road. That said, he does draw a nice matchup against the Mets tonight. The Mets are ranked 28th in wOBA vs. LH pitching and strike out at a 24% clip.

Zack Wheeler has pitched like an ace the last month. Since the start of July, he has had an ERA close to 2.00 with 40 K’s over 43 innings of work. He’s always been able to strike batters out and he’s turned into more of a ground ball pitcher this season (53% GB rate). He draws a favorable matchup against the Cubs who are ranked 28th in wOBA vs. RH pitching this season.


GO METS!!

#6 hittter, with first and second, tried to bunt 2X and then struck out. Who's managing the Cubs, Terry Collins?

I think that Wally Backman had someone at the #6 spot in the lineup do exactly that a few weeks ago.

Osvaldo didn't get the out, but he is amazing.

Wheeler stinks. Backman would probably make an example of him and drop a bucket of ice on his head...

Looks like another one of those nights where the Met offense is.....offensive. How many times over the last 3 years have we seen that? Groundhog day.

I wonder how much Citi field and the new hitting environment contributes to that impression. Looking at the 2014 NL numbers, the Mets are below average, but they are not especially bad compared to a lot of the NL.
