see man that is the type of post that stirs up stuff for no reason.

"mets fans" or a couple of people trying to get under your skin?

No honest logical fan thinks Harvey/Matz are better than Severino...that is just ridiculous talk. They know it gets a rise out of you so they continue it.

But to lump "mets fans" into making it look like a majority of us are illogical idiots is wrong IMO.

Dude, you see me in that thread battling 3-4 posters. That’s “Mets fans”

You can easily jump in our debate and protect me when the dude kept saying “Severino sucks” but didn’t. You gotta admit you have a few dummies on your board.

I respect the 2 MP’s wingo and Bno. The rest are ignorant.

there just trying to get a rise out of you. Whats there to debate really? They aren't looking to debate...they are looking to get under your skin.

If you asked them would they trade harvey or matz straight up for severino and declined I would smack them in the face. I would trade both harvey and matz for severino right now and laugh that I robbed the yankees.

Naah man. They’re that dumb. I’m in a 1 year sig bet with them right now. That means they’re pretty serious. We had good convos last year in the Mets thread so I’m not into the rivalry thing at all with Mets and like to see them win.

do some of these guys post on the reg? because I never see them talking knicks...I doubt they really care about a sig bet because its a lose lose for you.

If Harvey by some magical gods gift out pitches severino you get taken to the shed. If Severino out pitches Harvey....which he will. What do you get make fun of him for being stupid because he's already ridiculous to begin with?

They talk Knicks on occasion. I had them on ignore and had to open their posts because they normally speak nonsensical about the Knicks so It just translated to the MLB. Tell reub to make a truce and I can post how I’m I believe Calloway is a top tier Manager and Rosario is going to be one of the faces of the franchise by July.

Good to see Hicks back, wasnt expecting him to be back so soon. Was hearing more on Sunday.

Hopefully he can continue what he did last season before the injury, was having an all-star type of season when he went down. Want to see him keep that OBP where it was last year.

Yeah, super excited for Hicks. Tbh, he might find himself in the 2 hole soon if he can have that OBP around .380 again. Also our best glove.

Any chance you think Torres comes up next week?

With the way Tyler Wade is swinging the bat, I can see Torres coming up sooner rather than later.

Tyler Wade needs to be sent down or benched.

Not doing anything w/ the bat, and instead of getting the easy out at 1st, makes an error throwing at home.

And Sonny Gray constantly gets himself into trouble. He acts like everyone is a #3 hitter. Attack the bottom of the order and make your life easier.

Sonny takes his sweet ass time on the mound. Constantly stepping off. Over analyzing every better. Every scenario. Literally nibbling along inning by inning. Speed the **** up and pitch with confidence.

Really not a fan of Wade and Torreyes playing with Andujar on the bench.

Yeah, Wade is a AAAA player. His bat is so light. Tough to carry him if his glove isn’t elite. Torreyes is the better utility guy.

This was a very good series. A barometer reading for this team moving forward, that this team has to work harder for it to reach its potential.

The good news? There’s a lot of baseball left.

I remember in 2009, the Yankees were OWNED by the Sawx. By the All-Star break, tbe Yankees didn’t win not one game against the Sawx.

Larry David came on and said, I hope the Sawx go undefeated so come playoff time the tide will go the other way.

In the second half, the Yankees tied the season series against the Sawx then cruised to a WS title.

That’s baseball. It’s built on momentum and character.

When the dust settles, we’ll find out this team’s character.

Return to New York Knicks
