Yeah, Harvey stinks. We get it. He emptied the tank last November. His bladder’s got a blood clot. His head’s not in the right place. We get it. We get it. Remember Strasburg had a few shitty years, too, before becoming the elite pitcher he is right now. Ebb and flow and all that bullshit.
But more importantly, Harvey is only out there for one out of five or so games. WHAAAAT THE FUUUUCCK happened to the hitting? We are scoring LESS THAN 2 FUCKING RUNS per game!!
Oh, and also, I ain’t mad at Asdrubal because he’s been a godsend, but if he doesn’t bobble that ball, we’re out of the 3rd inning unscathed. Instead, the wheels fell off because Harvey is lacking confidence (?) and couldn’t pick up his fielders. This was a game where the team needed to pick Harvey up and it just didn’t happen.
Even if Asdrubal makes that play, it was already 2-1 Nats and we didn’t score again. Soooooo, fuck it. We can’t hit for shit. That’s the issue right now. Harvey will work it out one start at a time. Run him out there. It’s a new season and he’s got arm fatigue, just like deGrom. They’re gonna have to deal with it. 6-man rotation when Wheeler gets back? Maybe put Verrett in there now?
Again, all of this is bullshit. It’s the hitting. End of story. We’re not scroing. You can’t win this way. It’s boring and painful, too. We look like the pre-Cespedes Mets of last year. By the way, last May 20th, we were 23-18. This year, we’re 22-18. Errrrr, yeah, Mets blow.
But this team is too good not to break out of this funk. Everyone has funky stretches. The cream rises to the top. No better time to break out of this bullshit than in Colorado. Wait, fuck. That happened already and we didn’t hit for shit. Wow, Mets blow, huh? Ummm…well…the Brewers are in town now. Sooooo, time to fucking hit, right? They’ve got just about the worst team ERA in the majors. You know who has worse? The Rockies! OOOOOOOOPS.
P.S. It was nice seeing Murph again. Murphyball will hurt the Nats somewhere down the road, but for the most part he’s a gem and is forever cemented in some amazin’ Mets lore. I don’t think the crowd will be giving Cap’n Kirk 3-dingers the same ovation this week, but let it be known that in classic METS disease fashion, Kirk, no longer in a Mets uniform, is having a solid season so far.
