Trouble in Paradise for the Mets

Play episode

It’s only been five games. But looking at this Mets roster preseason, could you have seen them starting off like this? They have left 47 runners on base through five games, which is just embarrassing. The lineup is terrible. Conforto couldn’t hit a ball off a tee. And Luis Rojas is too clueless to move him out of the three spot in the lineup. Villar can’t touch fastballs. They were the worst hitting team with RISP last year and they are arguably worse this year. Same old Mets.

Trouble in the Dugout

The main issues all stem from the manager; the game plan is absolutely garbage. They started yesterday’s game with a leadoff double by Brandon Nimmo. Rojas then proceeds to send the best hitter on their entire roster (who they just gave a $341 million extension to) up to the plate to bunt… That is a fireable offense, that made me sick to my stomach because he’s bunting a guy over for a hitter that has already left 16 runners on base in the first four games.

They get lucky enough for Lindor to reach on an error, just to put on a hit and run for a guy who literally couldn’t hit the ball if he had the Empire State Building to swing at it with. Lindor gets gunned out, then Conforto and Pete strike out. Inning started with runners on the corners with no outs, and they don’t score at all. Pathetic management decisions ran themselves out of multiple runs early. 

Time to Move Conforto

Why is Michael Conforto still hitting third? I understand believing in your guys, and I truly believe Conforto will turn it around, but you are just throwing him to the wolves by continuing to hit him in that position. He comes up in crucial situations almost every time and fails. He is getting booed off the field at home because of his rough start. His head is just not on straight right now and his manager is going to get him booed off the team. Move Pete and Dom up a slot, or move Lindor to third and McNeil up to second. But Conforto is not the answer until he gets himself right. Keeping him third is killing this team by losing them games to division rivals. 

deGrom Can’t do it Alone

Jacob deGrom is the greatest pitcher I have ever seen in my entire life. He struck out 14 and made one mistake, which was crushed, and lost the game because of it. deGrom allowed one run and lost because his team again could not get anything going. These hitters talked all offseason about how fun this team was going to be, but have done absolutely nothing to back up any of it. Jacob is 3-5 at the plate and has more hits than multiple starters in half the at bats. In deGrom’s two starts this year, he has more hits than all other Mets’ hitters.

The man needs help, and this team is going to force him out if they do not start supporting him. He could go down as the best ever, but at this rate end with barely 100 career wins in a 15-year career with a sub 2.6 era.

One fantasy in particular is that often the bank prefers to have your house. The financial institution wants your hard earned money, not your own home. They want the funds they gave you together with interest. Preventing the bank will still only draw a new foreclosed conclusion. Thanks for your post.
