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. This is a case of better late than never but why was it even late? They should have been there from Day 1. They missed [...]
Maybe the starting pitchers for tonight can each go five innings.
Jeff McNeil returns as DH, Robinson Cano to 2B, Amed Rosario to SS and the G-Men infielders to the bench. Pete Alonso back at 1B and batting sixth.
What’s more depressing than getting swept by the Phillies? Beats me but as it’s 2020, it seems we’re sure to find the answer. 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, [...]
2020 RP -- 19 IP, 5.68 ERA, 3.19 FIP, 1.632 WHIP ZW -- 18.2 IP, 2.89 ERA, 3.78 FIP, 1.286 WHIP
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, [...]
With Marcus Stroman opting out, David Peterson is no longer pitching for a spot in the rotation. Let's hope he doesn't get complacent but instead looks to mimic Jacob deGrom's daytime success.
Seth Lugo can't go into the rotation because he's not stretched out but Robert Gsellman, who's thrown a total of *1* IP since August 12, 2019 - there's no problem starting him. It's madness. At least Andres Gimenez gets the start over Amed Rosario.

Rick Porcello gave the Mets their best performance from a starting pitcher since their day off but the bats took the night off, resulting in a 2-1 loss to the Nationals Tuesday night. Porcello gave up a run in each of the first two innings but settled in to go six innings on the night. [...]
Both Alonso and Rosario getting the night off. Can Porcello turn in two consecutive strong starts?
