Saturday's and Sunday's games have been postponed.

Let this be our start of a run that gets us eventually back to .500, please.
   3. Lassus Posted: August 26, 2011 at 11:26 PM (#3909930)
Ugh. I blame Duda.
   4. Lassus Posted: August 26, 2011 at 11:58 PM (#3909946)
I'm pretty sure I was wrong about Duda, he might be a keeper.

Hopefully we've found a RFer for the next few years.

And there goes the no-hitter.

I haven't been this optimistic about the farm system in a long, long time. Wheeler and Harvey are the best combination of high ceiling and performance the Mets have had together in the system since . . . well, let's just say in a long while. Yes, pitchers are fragile monsters. But still.

Tejada would have been dead on a good throw, but it was a good (and successful) gamble to send him.

Did Doc Gooden die and his spirit possess the body of Chris Capuano tonight?

Er, the good part of his spirit, that is . . .

Duda smoked that ball. First runs scored against Venters in 2 months.
   11. Lassus Posted: August 27, 2011 at 01:37 AM (#3910020)
WHOA

I went to go buy a golf shirt, and look what happened.
   12. Sam M. Posted: August 27, 2011 at 01:40 AM (#3910024)
Duda is an awfully interesting player. I'm really starting to wonder how much they might be able to improve his RF defense, and if it might not be worth the effort in 2012 to try. I'll say this: if he is going to be the long-term guy in RF, then having an A+ defender in center becomes absolutely essential. A Beltran-level glove out there would not be a luxury, not in Citifield.
   13. Lassus Posted: August 27, 2011 at 01:42 AM (#3910025)
Keith Hernandez sounds like he's come down with something.

Beltran-level sounds like a lot to shoot for, and possibly unrealistic. I'm not sure about the defensive stats, but to the eye over the years, he was truly exceptional.
   15. Sam M. Posted: August 27, 2011 at 01:47 AM (#3910031)
Capuano's game score tonight: 96. Yes, Cap just tossed a damn 96. How do you like THAT????
   16. AJMcCringleberry Posted: August 27, 2011 at 01:47 AM (#3910032)
Fantastic! CG 2 hit shutout with 13 Ks.
   17. Lassus Posted: August 27, 2011 at 01:47 AM (#3910033)
That's certainly a nice feel-good moment for a lost stretch of season.

Yay!

I agree, but honestly, with Duda as he is right now defensively, that's what they'd need. Of course, Duda could certainly improve. Young players have a way of doing that.

Holy cow, that really was one hell of a start from Capuano. Two baserunners with no walks and thirteen strikeouts is magnificent.
