Montero got sent down, but he’s coming back in ten days and the Mets are going 6-man-carousel-of-carnage.
I love the move. I think our staff is swinging huge dick. We’re saying that some teams have 2 or 3 viable starters and we have 6. They can all do it, so let’s do it.
Also, protect Harvey and deGrom’s arms. And keep them hungry. Let Harvey get angry and drooly in his cage and unleash him every 6th day with even more to prove.
P.S. Anyone saying a 5-man rotation is “correct” is retarded. There’s no rule saying that. And even if there was, rules are meant to be broken. “Conventional Wisdom” used to say that you couldn’t eat pig. Well, the Mets are going bacon on this bitch.
P.P.S. It might be a 5.5 man rotation because Terry sometimes gets cute.
Mets beat the Phils 2-0.
The home opener. The Hopener. Hope springs eternal.
Read today’s preblow. Scroll down to the next article. I told deGrom he had to throw zeroes. Brilliant managing on my part. And the pen, too. Awesome. We can’t hit for shit. I’ll take the shutout.
Zack Wheeler has a torn UCL. He will likely get TJ and miss the season.
Boy, did the Mets pull a Mets on this one. Their lack of honest reporting was bad. Their lack of concern was worse. How often do they underplay injuries, only to have them exacerbated? A stitch in time saves nine.
As far as the rotation is concerned, we might be ok. Gee, Thor, Matz…we’ve got pieces. I’m not saying this doesn’t suck, cuz it totally sucks, but looking at it through the dough-eyed lens of Spring: the rotation is the one area where we have the depth to afford an injury.
“Ow, my elbow.” -Edgin
“We may start the season without a lefty reliever.” -Collins
“I wasn’t prepared to give any left relievers a major league contract this offseason.” -Alderson
Awesome job everybody! Way to tout our pitching (bullpen included) for the past 6 months! Way to leave a crucial element all on one guy’s elbow! I know Edgin has been great, but have a fucking insurance plan. Now we stand to lose Gee, Colon, or BOTH in a “we know you’re desperate so here take this shitty lefty” trade.
P.S. LEARN YOUR LESSON! Sure things up at SS and C. Even if Flores and d’Arnaud are both great, we still need depth goddammit! Hell, sure up 3B while you’re at it. And don’t tell me Brittlebones Cuddyer is the backup third baseman.
“They could be the best in baseball. They’re young and improving. We’re sure to win and lose a bunch of games 1-0. I’m really excited to watch them from the dugout as I rehab whatever injury I get.” -Cuddyer
All the talk about our pitching. All the hemmin n’ hawin. It don’t mean shit ya hear?!
Nats got Scherzer. Sheeeeiiittt.
We can’t hit for shit, and we don’t even have the best pitching in the division. Metsblow.
