Ever since Sixto Lezcano I've thought Sixto was a pretty cool name. And Mr. Sanchez is one of the top pitching prospects around. Gotta say, I like the name Sixto Wacha - sounds like a Bond villain or something.
Time to put yesterday's ugliness behind us.
Please use this chatter for both games of the doubleheader
It wasn’t long after Pacella was in New York that folks started to notice he lost his cap a lot. The pitcher didn’t actually misplace his cap, it flew off his head almost every time he threw a pitch. “I don’t know when it started,” Pacella said. “I know it became a big deal, it [...]
Who would've thought we'd have a lineup where Luis Guillorme batted ahead of both Wilson Ramos and Amed Rosario?
This past week, the Mets have added Matthew Allan, Francisco Alvarez and Ronny Mauricio to their 60-man roster and they are now receiving instruction at the alternate site in Brooklyn.

But after the Mets’ 6-2 loss on Sunday, which dropped the team five games below .500, it feels pretty rotten in these parts right now. Rick Porcello pitched good for five innings, [...]

Wow, Tomas Nido gets the start for the second time in three games. Also, Luis Guillorme is in the lineup but Andres Gimenez is not. Amed Rosario is batting 7th.
How much do the Mets want to avoid giving Seth Lugo a start? We're now on our fourth opportunity and it's been a hard pass each time. Michael Wacha got the first call, David Peterson the second, Robert Gsellman the third and now Walker Lockett the fourth. There's still Franklyn Kilome and Thomas Szapucki. So, [...]
