The good thing is Hill has experience in the playoffs and as a guy that can come out of the bullpen. If we go into the playoffs healthy he can just move right into that second lefty role with Loup which will be pretty valuable. That Jon Neise role that he played in the post season.

Didn't really give up anything outside of a defensive catcher that at best projects as a backup in the majors.

we should wait and see since hill used the sticky stuff

as did stroman and walker (who haven’t been good recently)


I think most pitchers used something. I think Scherzer used stuff too but I would trade for him if the deal was reasonable.

Its all about how the adjust to not being able to use anything. Stroman did look really good last outing vs a pretty solid lineup in CIN. So hopefully he builds on that today. Walker has been bad recently hopefully its just a blip.

Hill looked really good thru 5 inning where he kinda max's out vs onne the best right handed hitting lineups in the league. I think he will be fine as well.

But I would be a vast majority of pitchers were using something whether that is sunscreen + rosin or whatever but guys just need to re-adjust. Not everyone was using SpiderTack

Looks like the Mets are trading for Tyler Anderson form the Pirates. Anderson is scheduled to start tonight, so the trade could happen any minute. If it does, expect Anderson to start for the Mets tonight.

Great game last night. Any of you catch it? I was shocked when Rojas took Lugo out of the game after a 3-pitch inning of relief. Great thrown by Conforto (what are we going to do with him?).

Javy and lindor up there middle will be filthy Defensively. He strikes out a bit much for my liking but hopefully he can find his 17-19 form with the bat.

Wish they got some more pitching. Walker been looking suspect since the sticky stuff got taken away and just to many guys who are hurt who we have to wait on

On paper this lineup is just downright filthy, then you start looking at the stats and just wonder what the hell is going wrong here. Maybe the move to New York energizes Baez as the entire season in Chicago was filled with rumors for the entire team. Between Covid/doctored balls and what not, you have to hope some guys start reverting to the back of their baseball cards.

All of a sudden the race in the NL East is back on, hopefully the pitching staff starts keeping us in games and our bats start to heat up because this is one deadly what if team, then again is anyone really beating the Dodgers if their on their A game?

A lot of swing and miss guys in this lineup is starting to catch up to them.

Conforto is also having a downright atrocious year. Batting under .200 in a contract year??? This was a guy that Boras was trying to get a $200 MM contract for. Do the mets even offer him the QO next year at this point?

It's frustrating but these mofo umps are also calling all these pitches way off the outside corner. They suck donkey balls.

Baez is going to being a lot of swag to the team. They clearly needed a jolt of energy. He is very much like cespedes in that aspect

Great trade and his impact made a difference in his first game. I just hope this team can get healthy. They will be a force if so.

it’s why he’s not not pitching and will just have “invite only” to his workout

and this isn’t tjs related because mets signed jt ginn knowing he was getting tjs

this is like a shoulder related injury.

Do you have a source? I just watched a video with Andy Martino and he says no one is confirming anything.

no, you just have to read the room

- they didn't offer him any contract after reveiwing medicals
- mets doctors are worried
- boras' unnamed doctors says he's fine
- jt ginn was drafted and got overslot money with the mets knowing he needed surgery
- rocker isn't going back to vandy, and isn't going to pitch again.

my guess it's shoulder related, it sucks but now they have 2 first rounders next year.
