Does WGN show Cubs games anymore? They moved from 13 to 98 on my cable system and I never go that high on my channel surfing.
Brian Joura

Brian Joura
July 6, 2012 – 7:10 pm
Wearing the Los Mets jerseys tonight.
Brian Joura

Brian Joura
July 6, 2012 – 7:13 pm
Reed Johnson?
Name

July 6, 2012 – 7:14 pm
The WGN on my cable isn’t showing it tonight
Brian Joura

Brian Joura
July 6, 2012 – 7:15 pm
I don’t think they showed any of the series at Wrigley, either.
Metsense

July 6, 2012 – 7:16 pm
Just missed Johnson. Tough to be behind on 2 pitches!
Brian Joura

Brian Joura
July 6, 2012 – 7:16 pm
He crushed it, too.
Name

July 6, 2012 – 7:16 pm
From the way cohen was calling it, it didn’t seem that way
Brian Joura

Brian Joura
July 6, 2012 – 7:17 pm
Murphy would have had it.
Name

July 6, 2012 – 7:17 pm
murphy would have made that?
Name

July 6, 2012 – 7:17 pm
you beat me to it
Name

July 6, 2012 – 7:18 pm
Any of you guys like a Soriano-Bay +some other pieces swap?
Brian Joura

Brian Joura
July 6, 2012 – 7:18 pm
Rizzo busted out of the batter’s box. I don’t think any 2B could have made that play once Santana deflected it.
Metsense

July 6, 2012 – 7:18 pm
No – No – No
Name

July 6, 2012 – 7:18 pm
Brandon Phillips probably would have made that
Name

July 6, 2012 – 7:19 pm
that guy is the king of trick plays
Brian Joura

Brian Joura
July 6, 2012 – 7:19 pm
I would entertain a Bay-Soriano deal but I wouldn’t take on any salary to do it.
Name

July 6, 2012 – 7:20 pm
both of them have 2 years left?
Metsense

July 6, 2012 – 7:21 pm
Bay has 2013 and a 2014 option
Name

July 6, 2012 – 7:22 pm
Let’s see what these backup RH bats can do tonight
Metsense

July 6, 2012 – 7:24 pm
The Mets RH platoon is actually competitive on paper, it is on the field itself that theyr’e no getting res[pect

July 6, 2012 – 7:26 pm
Brian. another fine article today and of course the one on Tejada early this week was good. ESPN Mets blog, Rubin had an interseting piece on Tejada today.
Brian Joura

Brian Joura
July 6, 2012 – 7:27 pm
Thanks!
Brian Joura

Brian Joura
July 6, 2012 – 7:27 pm
New writer debuted today. Stephen’s going to write about the minors
Metsense

July 6, 2012 – 7:28 pm
Enjoyed his piece as I see Rodriquez with the Gnats the last two years
Brian Joura

Brian Joura
July 6, 2012 – 7:28 pm
Hate when the Mets have these quick innings.
Metsense

July 6, 2012 – 7:30 pm
Surprised to see Cedeno start. Do you think they are showcasing him for a trade? Quint can do his job and Cedeno would bring back something.
Metsense

July 6, 2012 – 7:40 pm
Gordon of Dodgers out six weeks. Cedeno is available and LA bullpen is stocked!
Name

July 6, 2012 – 7:41 pm
Just came back from eating and first thing i see is a duda HR
Name

July 6, 2012 – 7:43 pm
I don’t think the Mets can afford to trade middle infielders, they need the depth
Name

July 6, 2012 – 7:44 pm
I’d rather see the mets trade their surplus outfielders
Metsense

July 6, 2012 – 7:46 pm
Quint is a poor man’s Cedeno, and Turner, although I like him, really doesn’t have a role. Murphy also could go especially with the way the FO loves Valdespin.
Brian Joura

Brian Joura
July 6, 2012 – 7:46 pm
I think the start is all about resting the LHB versus the southpaw.
Metsense

July 6, 2012 – 7:46 pm
But Murphy is so hot
Brian Joura

Brian Joura
July 6, 2012 – 7:47 pm
How was Duda’s HR?
Name

July 6, 2012 – 7:48 pm
Well, Valdespin can’t play SS, and Turner can’t play for an extended time there anyways so if you trade Cedeno and Tejada and Quint both get hurt they’re screwed because i don’t think they have another SS at AAA
Metsense

July 6, 2012 – 7:50 pm
Duda’s in the power alley in right in the MoZone. Solid
Metsense

July 6, 2012 – 7:50 pm
They can’t carry Quint the whole year and they will lose him if they send him down
Name

July 6, 2012 – 7:52 pm
Why can’t they carry Quint the whole year?
Brian Joura

Brian Joura
July 6, 2012 – 7:54 pm
Someone’s going to have to go among Cedeno, Quint and Turner when Bay and Baxter come back.
Name

July 6, 2012 – 7:55 pm
i vote torres
Brian Joura

Brian Joura
July 6, 2012 – 7:55 pm
Also, I wouldn’t worry about trading Cedeno (or Quintanilla). We’ve already had the rash of SS injuries and odds are extremely against the same type of thing happening again.
Metsense

July 6, 2012 – 7:56 pm
exactly Brian
Metsense

July 6, 2012 – 7:57 pm
Torres is a fine RH platoon with Kirk
Name

July 6, 2012 – 7:57 pm
but why deal from a position of relatively scarcity(can anyone enlighten me as to who they have left at AAA?), when you have a surplus of outfielders?
Metsense

July 6, 2012 – 7:58 pm
The OF has very little value unless you trade Hairston because 2 AL teams have inquired about him
Brian Joura

Brian Joura
July 6, 2012 – 7:58 pm
Middle infielders – off the top of my head – Tejada, Murphy, Cedeno, Quint, Turner, Valdespin, Havens. That doesn’t seem to be a huge scarcity.
Metsense

July 6, 2012 – 7:58 pm
The guy at AA has a ML glove also
Brian Joura

Brian Joura
July 6, 2012 – 7:59 pm
That was ugly, Sori
Name

July 6, 2012 – 7:59 pm
@Metsense: i know no one has talked about this, but i wonder what torres could bring back? @Brian Joura: only 3/7 can actually play SS
Brian Joura

Brian Joura
July 6, 2012 – 8:00 pm
But what are the odds that your two primary guys both go down with LT injuries at the same time, given it’s already happened?
Metsense

July 6, 2012 – 8:01 pm
I really don’t see Torres as a better CF for a team lacking one wheras Cedeno can field and is hitting better.
Brian Joura

Brian Joura
July 6, 2012 – 8:01 pm
You want to prepare for likely scenarios but I just don’t see something that has less than 5% of a chance of happening trumps trading one of those guys for much-needed bullpen help, if that type of trade is out there.
Brian Joura

Brian Joura
July 6, 2012 – 8:02 pm
Also, Turner and Valdespin can fake it at SS for brief stretches.
Metsense

July 6, 2012 – 8:02 pm
Dee Gordon is out six weeks and the guy in SF (even though he came in 2nd place in allstar voting) could be replaced
Name

July 6, 2012 – 8:03 pm
Well, if they do trade Cedeno, i want to see them get some decent bullpen guy
Brian Joura

Brian Joura
July 6, 2012 – 8:03 pm
New guy doesn’t do any better interviews than Kevin B.
Name

July 6, 2012 – 8:04 pm
to be fair, the guy he interviews knows little to none about baseball
Brian Joura

Brian Joura
July 6, 2012 – 8:04 pm
true dat
Brian Joura

Brian Joura
July 6, 2012 – 8:04 pm
It’s like FOX has taken over SNY
Name

July 6, 2012 – 8:06 pm
I’ve heard Broxton was on the trading block, although it seems like they are asking for a ML ready player. Even though he has declining numbers he could probably help this bullpen.
Brian Joura

Brian Joura
July 6, 2012 – 8:06 pm
Cedeno!
Name

July 6, 2012 – 8:06 pm
Well, that will help Cedeno’s trade value
Metsense

July 6, 2012 – 8:08 pm
Not sure what KC is looking for. Very ambiguous.
Brian Joura

Brian Joura
July 6, 2012 – 8:08 pm
They’ve got a lot of young offensive players. How about a SP?
Name

July 6, 2012 – 8:08 pm
Just a thought, would Lutz for Broxton be too much? too little?
Name

July 6, 2012 – 8:09 pm
right, nvm they have their future 3b
Brian Joura

Brian Joura
July 6, 2012 – 8:09 pm
It certainly wouldn’t be too much.
Metsense

July 6, 2012 – 8:09 pm
Maybe too little
Brian Joura

Brian Joura
July 6, 2012 – 8:10 pm
It’s definitely too little
Name

July 6, 2012 – 8:10 pm
but Valdespin for Broxton would probably be too much, right?
Brian Joura

Brian Joura
July 6, 2012 – 8:11 pm
I don’t know – that seems like a fair trade to me.
Brian Joura

Brian Joura
July 6, 2012 – 8:12 pm
Talent-wise, that is.
Brian Joura

Brian Joura
July 6, 2012 – 8:12 pm
The problem I see is that the Royals already have the guy Valdespin figures to be playing 2B for them.
Name

July 6, 2012 – 8:14 pm
i know they have their future 1b/3b/CF/C , but i don’t about their 2b situation
Chris F

July 6, 2012 – 8:14 pm
Hi all. What an amazing 9th last night.
Brian Joura

Brian Joura
July 6, 2012 – 8:15 pm
Chris F shows up and the other team scores!
Brian Joura

Brian Joura
July 6, 2012 – 8:15 pm

Brian Joura

Brian Joura
July 6, 2012 – 8:16 pm
I kid Chris, I kid
Brian Joura

Brian Joura
July 6, 2012 – 8:16 pm
Back to the Royals, how about a Broxton-Gee trade?
Chris F

July 6, 2012 – 8:17 pm
Good grief…and I root so hard!
Brian Joura

Brian Joura
July 6, 2012 – 8:17 pm
OH my Duda
Name

July 6, 2012 – 8:17 pm
I would think that a cost-controlled young SP for a veteren bullpen guy is too much
Brian Joura

Brian Joura
July 6, 2012 – 8:18 pm
There is a lot to be said for being young and cost controlled.
Brian Joura

Brian Joura
July 6, 2012 – 8:18 pm
There’s also a lot to be said for being good.
Name

July 6, 2012 – 8:19 pm
I want to win this season, and i think Gee is still better than Batitsa/Hefner
Brian Joura

Brian Joura
July 6, 2012 – 8:20 pm
The average NL ERA this year is 3.98 and Gee has a 4.34 ERA
Name

July 6, 2012 – 8:21 pm
I think that Gee has a low to mid 3 ERA in his past 8-10 starts though, he had a really bad 1st month if i remember correctly
Brian Joura

Brian Joura
July 6, 2012 – 8:22 pm
Starting in May, Gee has a 4.16 ERA
Brian Joura

Brian Joura
July 6, 2012 – 8:22 pm
In his last nine, it’s 3.38
Name

July 6, 2012 – 8:22 pm
yea, that’s the stat i was referring to
Name

July 6, 2012 – 8:24 pm
i was just checking gee’s stats and i just noticed he hadn’t had a scoreless start yet
Brian Joura

Brian Joura
July 6, 2012 – 8:24 pm
It’s not a choice of either Batista or Hefner. At this point I believe Matt Harvey could be called up.
Name

July 6, 2012 – 8:25 pm
he could be, but i don’t think Alderson will bring him up before September
Metsense

July 6, 2012 – 8:27 pm
I think Harvey is ready and I wouldn’t be surprised to see either Gee or Young traded.
Chris F

July 6, 2012 – 8:28 pm
Nice to see Kirk lay off the junk
Chris F

July 6, 2012 – 8:30 pm
I like your thinking on that .
Name

July 6, 2012 – 8:31 pm
i really haven’t even thought about harvey about this until you mentioned him a couple minutes ago, and i would be absolutely shocked if they traded Gee or Young.
Name

July 6, 2012 – 8:33 pm
scary
Metsense

July 6, 2012 – 8:33 pm
Risky trade but if Harvey is ready then why wait when a young pitcher like Gee might have more value at the trade deadline than during the winter.
Name

July 6, 2012 – 8:33 pm
i think santana’s done
Name

July 6, 2012 – 8:37 pm
ugh
Chris F

July 6, 2012 – 8:38 pm

Some days you’re the dog some days you’re the hydrant.
Brian Joura

Brian Joura
July 6, 2012 – 8:41 pm
I doubt that Alderson *wants* to trade Gee or Young but if it comes down to it…
Brian Joura

Brian Joura
July 6, 2012 – 8:42 pm
Here comes my favorite guy – Dan Warthen!
Name

July 6, 2012 – 8:43 pm
i still think that the foot/ankle is bothering him, but we won’t know until after the game
Chris F

July 6, 2012 – 8:44 pm
Its bigger than the obvious…we struggle terribly against NL C for some reason that escapes me
Name

July 6, 2012 – 8:45 pm
actually, we struggle terribly against LHP
Name

July 6, 2012 – 8:45 pm
and tonight they have a LHP
Chris F

July 6, 2012 – 8:46 pm
For sure, but our record against NL C is sad
Name

July 6, 2012 – 8:47 pm

July 6, 2012 – 8:49 pm
Ramon needs to step it up

I didn’t like the two-strike call but I”m not sure what he was looking at with that one.

July 6, 2012 – 9:03 pm
Cedeno can’t make that play
Chris F

July 6, 2012 – 9:04 pm
Another met killer in the making

Well, it’s no time to be proud — we’ll take it
Brian Joura

Brian Joura
July 6, 2012 – 9:14 pm
NIce night for Turner with the bat. That’s his third hit

Brian Joura

Brian Joura
July 6, 2012 – 9:14 pm
We’ve got to get at least one run here
Brian Joura

Brian Joura
July 6, 2012 – 9:15 pm
Sorry Keith, all powder blue uniforms are ugly
Brian Joura

Brian Joura
July 6, 2012 – 9:16 pm
Nickeas got a run home, I guess we’re happy
Chris F

July 6, 2012 – 9:19 pm
I liked the KC powder blues

July 6, 2012 – 9:19 pm
We can. Come back from 4
Brian Joura

Brian Joura
July 6, 2012 – 9:22 pm

There was no reason for him to slide. He could have caught that without sliding.

July 6, 2012 – 9:44 pm
Well, game over
Robert

July 6, 2012 – 9:47 pm
Hello everybody. Was listening to the Mets radio broadcast while working out. Ugly.
Brian Joura

Brian Joura
July 6, 2012 – 9:47 pm
Glad that one wasn’t hit to Duda.
Brian Joura

Brian Joura
July 6, 2012 – 9:48 pm
Hey Robert – thanks for joining in! Wish we had a better game but maybe the Mets will surprise us again.
Robert

July 6, 2012 – 9:48 pm
Yes. Great comeback yesterday. I can go for the same type of ending.
Robert

July 6, 2012 – 9:49 pm
Heard Santana was keeping his slider and fastball up in the zone tonight.
Brian Joura

Brian Joura
July 6, 2012 – 9:50 pm
Yeah, it was not pretty
Brian Joura

Brian Joura
July 6, 2012 – 9:51 pm
Maybe David will reward us for sticking through to the end with a big hit here.
Name

July 6, 2012 – 9:51 pm
Hard to have a big hit when no one is on base and you’re down 5
Brian Joura

Brian Joura
July 6, 2012 – 9:52 pm
When did you turn into Chris F?
Brian Joura

Brian Joura
July 6, 2012 – 9:52 pm
Not the HR I was hoping for but a double is nice
Name

July 6, 2012 – 9:53 pm
Since the game ended around 4 innings ago i guess
Robert

July 6, 2012 – 9:58 pm
I’m hurting in ERA and WHIP in my fantasy league. I started Santana tonight. The hole gets deeper.
Robert

July 6, 2012 – 10:02 pm
8-4 baby. They’re going to rally.
Brian Joura

Brian Joura
July 6, 2012 – 10:02 pm
The problem with this game is that it won’t last long enough. We’ll catch up by the 12th inning
Chris F

July 6, 2012 – 10:04 pm
Hey, I heard that Brian!
Chris F

July 6, 2012 – 10:06 pm
We can get 4 on that pen. 2 out 9th inning heroics are coming!
Name

July 6, 2012 – 10:06 pm
at least WAS is losing 5-1 in the 9th, so mets should stay 4.5 out
Brian Joura

Brian Joura
July 6, 2012 – 10:08 pm
I’m glad everyone’s coming back for our ninth inning rally!
Chris F

July 6, 2012 – 10:09 pm

Can’t complain about the Mets’ pen tonight — 1 ER in 4.1 IP

Let’s hope Marmol walks the bases loaded.

Brian Joura

what makes you think that they love him?
Brian Joura

Brian Joura
July 6, 2012 – 10:20 pm
They keep calling him back up – someone likes him whether it’s Alderson or Collins
Brian Joura

Brian Joura
July 6, 2012 – 10:21 pm
All right Murphy – keep it going
Name

July 6, 2012 – 10:21 pm
But usually, with someone you like you don’t keep sending them up and down and up and down, would you do that with Harvey?
Robert

July 6, 2012 – 10:21 pm
The big guns up for the Mets.
Name

July 6, 2012 – 10:21 pm
but lets focus on the 9th
Brian Joura

Brian Joura
July 6, 2012 – 10:21 pm
I don’t think you can compare a position player and a pitcher in that situation.
Brian Joura

Brian Joura
July 6, 2012 – 10:22 pm
That wasn’t close to being a strike – don’t know what he’s complaining about.
Name

July 6, 2012 – 10:22 pm
probably just frustrated
Brian Joura

Brian Joura
July 6, 2012 – 10:22 pm
woo-hoo!
Metsense

July 6, 2012 – 10:23 pm
Because why cut a pitcher for no reason just to have him up. You would think a young guy would be better served in the minors playing
Robert

July 6, 2012 – 10:23 pm
Wright the tying run at the plate.
