Hampson is out, Valdespin is in. Makes sense because SP have been going really deep so able to go to 6 man bullpen
Brian Joura
Brian Joura
July 4, 2012 – 12:47 pm
Good. I didn’t see the point of calling Hampson up in the first place. Last thing we needed was another bullpen arm who couldn’t go but a batter or two at a time.
Brian Joura
Brian Joura
July 4, 2012 – 1:13 pm
Over under on fly balls for Chris Young: 12

Lately though, he’s been getting leads, and then blowing them

If Pierre hits. A FB he should have to do push ups ala Willie Mays Hayes
Brian Joura
Brian Joura
July 4, 2012 – 1:59 pm
Not sure why any pitch to him is below the belt.
Brian Joura
Brian Joura
July 4, 2012 – 2:00 pm
If that throw hadn’t been head high, they would have had Pierre at 2B.
Scott Gilroy
Scott Gilroy
July 4, 2012 – 2:01 pm
20 SB and around 15 CS
Brian Joura
Brian Joura
July 4, 2012 – 2:01 pm
Sssh, you’re not supposed to notice that
Brian Joura
Brian Joura
July 4, 2012 – 2:01 pm

He had 27 SB versus 17 CS last year.
Scott Gilroy

Brian Joura
Brian Joura
July 4, 2012 – 2:04 pm

Lee’s older than I thought – he’ll turn 34 at the end of August. Thought he was 2 years younger.
Brian Joura

This guy filling in for Kevin Burkhardt is pretty good. Doesn’t try to hog air time like KB seems to do.

Two more fly balls for Young. That’s 11 after six innings.
Name

July 4, 2012 – 2:36 pm
Maybe it’s because Young has been so efficient. 67 pitches thru 6
Brian Joura
Brian Joura
July 4, 2012 – 2:36 pm
That’s outstanding. Usually think an average of 13 per inning is good.

July 4, 2012 – 2:41 pm
what do you want? second basemen? another outfielder? more bullpen?
Brian Joura
Brian Joura
July 4, 2012 – 2:42 pm
Duda’s still young and cost controlled. I think he’s got value. But he needs to play 1B or DH.
Scott Gilroy
Scott Gilroy
July 4, 2012 – 2:43 pm
I’m more interested in his perceived value in league and what type of talent he could return
Brian Joura
Brian Joura
July 4, 2012 – 2:43 pm
I’d put a RH hitting catcher into that trade want list
Name

July 4, 2012 – 2:44 pm
I would think he has more value to the Mets than any other team

I was thinking that as well Name. Not sure rest of lg likes Duda like we do
Name

July 4, 2012 – 2:46 pm
I really think that they should swap Nickeas for Johnson, assuming he is still well at AAA
Brian Joura
Brian Joura
July 4, 2012 – 2:46 pm
It hasn’t been a particularly good year for Duda. But wouldn’t he be a huge upgrade at DH for a team like Tampa?

Calling that Pierre hit a line drive.
