So needless to say thus far, our defense has been less than subpar.
Gimenez looks like he's gonna be real good, where does he play going forward?
Love to see Smith getting at bats, just like what he brings to this team.

It's silly, it's been six games and a tenth of the season is gone.

Diaz is done man. He looks lost and with zero confidence.

One hit wonder if you ask me.

Mets should be 6-1, baseball version of the Knicks. Just stupid mistakes. Worst defensive team in Baseball.

- Rojas needs to stop playing roulette with the line up
- Maybe make a compilation of Conforto striking out with runners on base and show it to him & Explain to him that Steve Cohen doesn't pay mental midgets 120 million dollars
- Maybe Cano can play a corner outfield position, McNeil is 2B (He's gonna make 20 errors in a 60 game season at 3rd) and Davis is a 3B
- Alonso looks like Cespedes in terms of rust and that shouldn't be the case, one guy missed 3 years of Baseball. The other looks like he did nothing but eat during Covid

Why was JD hitting cleanup and Cespedes 6th? I didn’t like that move. Alonso also looked like crap in the field again. Maybe let DSmith play 1B and give both Pete and Cespedes a night or two off or let Pete DH a game.

Cano is done and so is Diaz. Let him pitch the 7th and move everyone else up a notch. Lugo’s the closer.

Rojas needs to get his act together. He’s beginning to remind me of Clueless Callahan.

Mr. Rojas got some explaining to do with this bullpen and lineup. He’s shuffling this line up like a dealer at a poker game.

Imagine being a fan?

When after we got that 6-run lead and Porcello three 6 straight pitches out of the strike zone I had to walk away from the TV. I checked back later and it was 10-6 with Atlanta threatening and I knew then. I shut the TV off and began bing-watching The Umbrella Academy.

BVV ruined this team with his Big Splash.

Cespedes didn't show up to the ballpark... no contact at all with him. Bizarre.

Maybe it has to do with how he embarrassed himself on that last whiff when he swung at a pitch one foot off the inside part of the plate. He looks horrible.

I’d DH Pete and play Dom at 1B. Ces sits.

Also, Manfred says the season might get shut down

Yo anus opts out after 8 games. Batting .161 with 15 strikeouts. Just didn't go to work.

Every indication that Cespedes jumped ship and announced the Mets aren't making the playoffs.

Maybe no one makes the playoffs, but Cespedes gets early tee times at least.

I think Cespedes just has no interest in playing baseball.

I’m glad Céspedes is fine. Just look at the situation with the Marlins and Cardinals. Some players are not taking this seriously when it comes to making changes to the way they handle themselves like spitting while they are at the plate, high fives/hand shakes, not wearing a face covering, etc. etc. etc.

On top of all that, the Mets have serious problems and it starts with Rojas and that bullpen.

Over or under that baseball is the 1st sports to cancel the season.

Yep. That was exactly what I mentioned in a separate discussion on Manfred being again over his head.
