The Area 51s Are Better Than the Mets

Kinda looks like Mr. Met...

The Mets are officially the plot of a second run, practically straight-to-youtube movie. In Major League 3: Back to the Minors, the Buzz (the Twins AAA team) are better than the Twins. Sound familiar?

The Area 51s are on a 10 game winning streak. This is mostly due to the team betting on themselves at the MGM Sportsbook–a great incentive.

With Thor and Matz pitching, could the Mets score any runs? With this lineup, I sincerely doubt it. I wouldn’t be surprised if Reynolds and co. were able to scratch out a run and beat the Mets 1-0.

Noah Syndergaard to the Minors

Noah Syndergaard has been optioned to minor league camp. Syndergaard was scheduled to pitch on Saturday against the Tigers. This spring, Syndergaard appeared in three games, posted a 4.91 ERA over 7 1/3 innings. He struck out nine and walked three.

Why send him down a day before his scheduled start? I’ll tell you why: Because Vegas, that’s why! March Madness! He’s probably there to monitor his bracket.

Seriously, though, have you noticed how much this guy’s stock has plummeted? Matz is sooooo the guy, now. Thor might be out, y’all. He might really be out. He’s got the stuff, but boy does he get rattled up there. Learn to deal with an error, Noah. Learn to deal with when the ump doesn’t give you the call. Grow up, Peter Pan.

Vegas Pitching Coach Frank Viola says Matz reminds him of Bumgarner

Frank Viola, fresh off a hot night on the strip, drunkenly rambled about Mets LHP prospect Steven Matz. “He’s got the fire. He’s a wrecking machine. Red ain’t dead. I lost a lot on the superbowl but I’ve got hot hands in the dice game, baby girl!”

He went on to say, “If you give [Matz] a chance in those types of situations [World Series games], he’s going to shine.”

Thanks Frank! Good to know we’ve got a World Series MVP on our hands. Now all we’ve gotta do is get to the World Series. No problemo! Hype! Hype! Hype!
