"Anyone can close."
#2 and #8. I think Moore's comment was just off the cuff and shouldn't be over-analyzed. But look at the Win Probablity Chart the last 2 innings.
The chatter wasn't exactly epic, but it had its moments.
You brought your "A" game to that one Lassus. Eso kinda jumped in nicely though to offset your work. That's a shame because I thought you really gave 110%.
I like the look of Valdespin. His stance looks like Robinson Cano's. He looks like one of those guys that can hit 15 homeruns, 15 steals, and not actually be that good (like the first Alex Gonzalez). But as a lefty that can play infield and outfield, that's a long career right there.
Tough game to lose, but my lack of faith in the Mets bullpen is so extreme that I no longer expect to win close games like this. It makes it psychologically easier to handle.
The best part of the game for me was Collins' decision to pinch-hit Valdespin for Jason Bay rather than Scott Hairston. Indicates that he might be viewed the way he really should be: a weak platoon outfielder.
Hairston was really ####### terrible last night, and he's seemed a lot moreso lately than earlier.
So when Baxter comes back, I wonder what the roster move is.
If we look at Sandepo’s record, it’s hard to believe they routinely built and re-built good bullpens in San Diego. In 2011 their only big-ticket signing was DJ Carrasco (DFA’d earlier this year). In 2012, they signed Francisco, Rauch, traded for Ramirez, resigned Byrdak and Batista, hired a new BP coach. Big splat.
Bullpens are frequently just amalgamations of small sample sizes. You get some flame throwing youngsters, some crafty veterans, and you hope for the best.
Having Mike Nickeas as your #2 catcher going into the season says "eh, who give a ####?"
