Nice opening on SNY praising “de facto” captain David Wright
Metsense

July 7, 2012 – 4:13 pm
So Brian, do you think the Mets would move Murphy now so that Valdespin can start? It seems the front office backs him.
Metsense

July 7, 2012 – 4:16 pm
Hi Chris F, so what to you think about Valdespin?
Chris F

July 7, 2012 – 4:17 pm
Im in
Chris F

July 7, 2012 – 4:17 pm
feels like he has X factor
Metsense

July 7, 2012 – 4:18 pm
Yeah, probably but I’m afraid his head may end up too big for his hat.
Chris F

July 7, 2012 – 4:18 pm
Enjoyed your “conversation” today Brian
Chris F

July 7, 2012 – 4:20 pm
that is a concern. I do get that. And I like Murph. I cant tell if we have a 2B issue or not. But Tejada, Murph, Cendeno, Q, and Spin is too much to hold on to, no?
Chris F

July 7, 2012 – 4:20 pm
U in NY Metsense?
Metsense

July 7, 2012 – 4:21 pm
No Foothills of the North Carolina mountains near Hickory
Chris F

July 7, 2012 – 4:21 pm
beautiful country round those parts. im in knoxville
Metsense

July 7, 2012 – 4:23 pm
Dee Gordon out 6 weeks with Dodgers so I expect Cedeno to go there for almost anybody in LA bullpen
Chris F

July 7, 2012 – 4:23 pm
thats good thinking.
Chris F

July 7, 2012 – 4:24 pm
the lefty hitting issue is a drag. we need better coaching?
Metsense

July 7, 2012 – 4:24 pm
Also way too much in the middle infield
Metsense

July 7, 2012 – 4:25 pm
Coaching is fine although Wharthen I’m not fond of
Chris F

July 7, 2012 – 4:26 pm
no me neither. im surprised we are showing little improvement with our left-handed bats
Metsense

July 7, 2012 – 4:27 pm
Davis and Duda are up and Duda and Kirk are down. I don’t think it is coaching, more like inexperienced players
Chris F

July 7, 2012 – 4:33 pm
oh man, that was a filthy pitch
Metsense

July 7, 2012 – 4:35 pm
LaHair is an all star. Ike should take note that 1B is an open area in the NL and set that as a motivational goal for Citi Field next year.
Chris F

July 7, 2012 – 4:36 pm
For sure. LaHair got a lot of press early on, and it seems to have stuck, even though hes clearly not at all star level. As the conversation covered, the ASG is a real quandary. Another all home grown team today!
Metsense

July 7, 2012 – 4:37 pm
Home grown is impressive
Chris F

July 7, 2012 – 4:38 pm
I got a ball from the game earlier this year…hoping to get it all autographed by that line up
Chris F

July 7, 2012 – 4:38 pm
Spin continues to impress
Metsense

July 7, 2012 – 4:38 pm
Very cool about ball and Valdespin is looking good
Chris F

July 7, 2012 – 4:39 pm
harder and harder to send him back down
Metsense

July 7, 2012 – 4:40 pm
I think Valdespin listens to Hudgeons and that is why they like him. just a guess
Chris F

July 7, 2012 – 4:40 pm
interesting. good for kirk
Metsense

July 7, 2012 – 4:41 pm
When Keith says I guy can hit, I listen
Metsense

July 7, 2012 – 4:42 pm
Chris F my wife and I did a mini vacation in Knoxville 2 years ago and loved the area
Chris F

July 7, 2012 – 4:42 pm
u see anything deeper in the RA and Johan poor outings other than face value? Yeah, Keith understands what to do in the box
Metsense

July 7, 2012 – 4:43 pm
I hate to say it but I think they are leveling off to a more reasonable performance
Chris F

July 7, 2012 – 4:43 pm
its nice. my wife and I are both from elsewhere, but its now home. Spring and Fall are outstanding
Metsense

July 7, 2012 – 4:44 pm
Yeah, retired to NC from East Hampton NY
Chris F

July 7, 2012 – 4:44 pm
I think slowing down is whats happening too. What about moving CY to long relief 5-8th and bringing up a gun
Metsense

July 7, 2012 – 4:46 pm
Not sure I like that thinking because of the shoulder. But Harvey may be here sooner than expected. Not sure.
Chris F

July 7, 2012 – 4:48 pm
Yeah, the shoulder bothers me, but he really cant seem to last out more than 6. If he was throwing 6 or so outs…
Metsense

July 7, 2012 – 4:49 pm
Your logic is firm, but CY did get the next 3 outs after the HR’s so I am not convinced the sample size is as bad as the stats.
Chris F

July 7, 2012 – 4:51 pm
RT!!
Chris F

July 7, 2012 – 4:52 pm
At some point the press will see that RT is the real deal.
Metsense

July 7, 2012 – 4:52 pm
Tejada is going to be an all star some day. He is so smart for 22! Brian’s article on him last winter was one of the best pieces I have read. Check it out
Metsense

July 7, 2012 – 4:53 pm
Can’t wait to hear Sandy tomorrow
Chris F

July 7, 2012 – 4:53 pm
I did. I have to say, I was not too shaken when Jose bolted. I liked what RT did last Aug/Sept. Yeah, the Sandy perspective ought to be interesting.
Chris F

July 7, 2012 – 4:55 pm
You read “The Bad Guys Won”?
Metsense

July 7, 2012 – 4:55 pm
It was hard to see him go, out of principle, but I think Reuben will be more consistant over his career
Metsense

July 7, 2012 – 4:56 pm
Yes, kind of shot my respect for the 86 team (I was a Sunday season ticket holder)
Chris F

July 7, 2012 – 4:57 pm
Half season NL MVP choices?
Chris F

July 7, 2012 – 4:57 pm
Cutch. Votto. WRIGHT!
Metsense

July 7, 2012 – 4:57 pm
Votto, Wright and Beltran
Chris F

July 7, 2012 – 4:58 pm
Castro think there was 2 out?
Metsense

July 7, 2012 – 4:58 pm
I like Ike
Chris F

July 7, 2012 – 4:59 pm
me too! Man its noce to see him crash the barriers down
Chris F

July 7, 2012 – 4:59 pm
little more 2 out magic
Chris F

July 7, 2012 – 5:00 pm
I think thats a huge deal…it means the defense must be tense right until the 3rd out
Metsense

July 7, 2012 – 5:01 pm
If he would just get his head straight. The only reason I say that is because his defense indicates to me thathe is not focused
Chris F

July 7, 2012 – 5:02 pm
I hear ya. Im growing more and more concerned with Lucas on all fronts. His defense seems to be going backwards.
Metsense

July 7, 2012 – 5:02 pm
The 2 out runs are great. Psychologically it means to the team that they are clutch and can score no matter what the obstacle.
Chris F

July 7, 2012 – 5:02 pm
and he didnt have much ground to give!
Chris F

July 7, 2012 – 5:02 pm
and he didnt have much ground to give!
Metsense

July 7, 2012 – 5:03 pm
Duda needs to show more offensively because of his D.
Metsense

July 7, 2012 – 5:04 pm
I would not be surprised to see Lu Dude traded this winter
Chris F

July 7, 2012 – 5:04 pm
me neither.
Metsense

July 7, 2012 – 5:05 pm
He reminds of a pitcher ******** BP
Metsense

July 7, 2012 – 5:06 pm
I got bleeped for using the term for catching fly *****. I’m not English!
Metsense

July 7, 2012 – 5:06 pm
I now got bleeped for talking about the opposite of strikes
Chris F

July 7, 2012 – 5:07 pm
I was censored for just b a l l s the other day and c r a p!
Metsense

July 7, 2012 – 5:07 pm
Pretty Funny! A PG13 website. No problem. Better than the opposite
Metsense

July 7, 2012 – 5:09 pm
Soriano makes Duda look like a gold glover
Chris F

July 7, 2012 – 5:10 pm
true…on both fronts!
Metsense

July 7, 2012 – 5:14 pm
Gee only 38 pitches!
Chris F

July 7, 2012 – 5:14 pm
we need a real solid start after the last stretch!
Chris F

July 7, 2012 – 5:16 pm
murph is turning into a secondbaseman
Metsense

July 7, 2012 – 5:17 pm
Brian was right about Murphy but I do believe Valdespin is the future in the front offices eyes
Chris F

July 7, 2012 – 5:18 pm
someone(s) will need to be traded im afraid
Metsense

July 7, 2012 – 5:19 pm
It is a great bunch of guys but the right trade may accelerate the teams playoff chances in the future
Chris F

July 7, 2012 – 5:20 pm
yep.
Chris F

July 7, 2012 – 5:24 pm
Intersting RTs bat replacement totally different!
Metsense

July 7, 2012 – 5:25 pm
What was that about
Chris F

July 7, 2012 – 5:25 pm
Odd…thats for sure. Murph migh just go long here
Metsense

July 7, 2012 – 5:25 pm
very surprising that it wasn’t the same
Metsense

July 7, 2012 – 5:26 pm
Murphy “sure plays a mean pin ball”
Chris F

July 7, 2012 – 5:26 pm
hahahahahhahaha
Chris F

July 7, 2012 – 5:27 pm
Skate save!
Metsense

July 7, 2012 – 5:27 pm
and a beaut as Marv would say
Chris F

July 7, 2012 – 5:27 pm
I think its time to hang the “C” on #5s jersey
Metsense

July 7, 2012 – 5:28 pm
and put the money in his pocket
Chris F

July 7, 2012 – 5:29 pm
agreed
Chris F

July 7, 2012 – 5:31 pm
well he looked at a beauty there
Metsense

July 7, 2012 – 5:31 pm
David still flinches on the curve
Chris F

July 7, 2012 – 5:35 pm
and the inside
Metsense

July 7, 2012 – 5:36 pm
The walls coming in has helped him the most. He can now hit naturally to RC and not get outs
Chris F

July 7, 2012 – 5:37 pm
for sure. it was for certain the right move. and our home record shows it
Metsense

July 7, 2012 – 5:39 pm
I bunch of rich know nothings designing an outfield thinking that they know something. Awful
Chris F

July 7, 2012 – 5:40 pm
Amazing it passed any level of real reason in design
Metsense

July 7, 2012 – 5:41 pm
I see Gee as a good fifth starter for the next 2-3 years until someone in the minors pushes him out.
Chris F

July 7, 2012 – 5:43 pm
yep. and Murph played that well. I was at Citi when he got his knee blown out last Aug. It was sad
Metsense

July 7, 2012 – 5:44 pm
Gives you a sick feeling seeing something like that
Chris F

July 7, 2012 – 5:45 pm
thats for sure
Chris F

July 7, 2012 – 5:46 pm
Gee needs this out badly
Metsense

July 7, 2012 – 5:46 pm
tense
Chris F

July 7, 2012 – 5:47 pm
Funny hearing Keiths grunts and groans in the background
Chris F

July 7, 2012 – 5:48 pm
that had break even Thole missed!
Brian Joura

July 7, 2012 – 5:48 pm
Just got in – what’s happening?
Metsense

July 7, 2012 – 5:48 pm
very clutch
Metsense

July 7, 2012 – 5:48 pm
Bay was traded for Hamels
Metsense

July 7, 2012 – 5:49 pm
I mean Lee
Brian Joura

July 7, 2012 – 5:50 pm
nice. I’ll settle for the score
Metsense

July 7, 2012 – 5:50 pm
3-1 Valdespin hr dAVIS hr 2 rbi
Metsense

July 7, 2012 – 5:51 pm
Gee pitching great
Chris F

July 7, 2012 – 5:51 pm
I thought it was Bay for Lee and Papelbon?
Brian Joura

July 7, 2012 – 5:51 pm
Thanks for the score.
Metsense

July 7, 2012 – 5:51 pm
Valdespin vetoed the addition of Papelbon
Chris F

July 7, 2012 – 5:51 pm
good read today Brian
Brian Joura

July 7, 2012 – 5:51 pm
PapelBUM – what do we want that guy for?
Brian Joura

July 7, 2012 – 5:52 pm
Something a little different – hope it was fun. I enjoyed writing it.
Chris F

July 7, 2012 – 5:52 pm
Spin could make a living off him thats for sure
Chris F

July 7, 2012 – 5:54 pm
a little speed there
Brian Joura

July 7, 2012 – 5:55 pm
Nice to see Rizzo make a mistake.
Metsense

July 7, 2012 – 5:55 pm
power, speed and youth. Good combo
Chris F

July 7, 2012 – 5:56 pm
ok. we got 2 out….time to score some runs!
Metsense

July 7, 2012 – 5:56 pm
of course
Brian Joura

July 7, 2012 – 5:56 pm
That was a pretty good camera thing there to show he missed the tag.
Chris F

July 7, 2012 – 5:56 pm
Really think it was a mistake?
Chris F

July 7, 2012 – 5:57 pm
tough play
Brian Joura

July 7, 2012 – 5:57 pm
You’re right – poor choice of words on my part.
Metsense

July 7, 2012 – 5:57 pm
SNY has the best shots
Metsense

July 7, 2012 – 5:58 pm
we needed some tack on runs, oh well
Chris F

July 7, 2012 – 5:58 pm
Im glad the Mets dropped all the black on the unis
Brian Joura

July 7, 2012 – 6:00 pm
Yes, it was way past time for the black to go.
Chris F

July 7, 2012 – 6:04 pm
Keith is funny. Hed be great to spend the evening with
Brian Joura

July 7, 2012 – 6:06 pm
Nice try be Gee
Metsense

July 7, 2012 – 6:07 pm
Gee looks real sharp today.
Chris F

July 7, 2012 – 6:07 pm
yeah. I say keep him going.
Robert

July 7, 2012 – 6:08 pm
Hey everybody. I’m listening to the game today.

Chris F

July 7, 2012 – 6:12 pm
the bat mystery…..
Brian Joura

July 7, 2012 – 6:13 pm
C’mon Murphy quit trying to go the other way on balls you should pull
Chris F

July 7, 2012 – 6:13 pm
booo
Brian Joura

July 7, 2012 – 6:14 pm
Gents I’ve got to run. I’ll trust you’ll bring us home a victory! See you tomorrow.
Metsense

July 7, 2012 – 6:14 pm
Front office notices that also. Why have a Luis Castillo II when you can have Valdespin.
Chris F

July 7, 2012 – 6:14 pm

Metsense

July 7, 2012 – 6:20 pm
Does Gee come out for the ninth??
Metsense

July 7, 2012 – 6:21 pm
Normally I would say yes but I’m reluctant to bring in Parnell not at the start of an inning
Chris F

July 7, 2012 – 6:22 pm
no
Chris F

July 7, 2012 – 6:22 pm
i say let him go. but parnell has impressed me so far
Chris F

July 7, 2012 – 6:23 pm

Metsense

July 7, 2012 – 6:23 pm
Not if Ike or Duda hit one out
Chris F

July 7, 2012 – 6:26 pm
unreal
Metsense

July 7, 2012 – 6:28 pm
Terry always looks to get Hairston an AB each game, which is a good thing
Metsense

July 7, 2012 – 6:32 pm
How come we all have the same do dad by our log in names? Got to ask Brian about that. They look silly.
Chris F

July 7, 2012 – 6:32 pm

Chris F

July 7, 2012 – 6:32 pm
