    True enough, but the Mets have once again picked a hell of a time to go dry offense-wise.

    On another note, it's a shame about Verlander needing Tommy John--with him already a HOFer and having a ring, I wonder if that might be it for him after 17 years, he'd be 39 by the time he could pitch again. (And the 49ers and Jets are both banged up to hell, 24-6 my guys lead, but it's a triage situation with Garoppolo, Bosa, Soloman Thomas, and others out.)

    • And d'Arnaud just continues to punish the Mets with an agonizing two-run double to make it 3-0 in the 8th...

      • One more week and the Mets season ends. This offseason, with a lot of changes should be very interesting.

        • There's a BIG plume of smoke out beyond right field, something's on fire in the neighborhood near Citi Field...

          • Mets got shutout 7-0, Porcello struck out ten, which was nice.

              This has all been a blessing in disguise because they can't just sail along for a year and a half with their 86-76 record and think that they're better than they really are, and have little work to do..

              Agreed, but anyone thought that the 86-76 was an indicator of the team going forward they were fooling themselves. The big thing that went almost unnoticed last year was that the pitching staff stayed healthy all season - that does not happen in MLB.

              Then add in losing Wheeler plus with injuries that need to be expected and you have this mess.

              They are not good enough to be in looking out.

              They are a bad team and they have plenty of work to do. Cohen has a job ahead of him.

              With all that said -- 2020 was a great year for the Mets because of the sale. Probably the most important thing that has happened to them since 1986.

                Word was that the moron Jeff non-tendered him after a baserunning mistake. Word was he non-tendered Justin Turner after Turner refused to spend his own money on the fat farm that Jeff and his chum from University of Michigan were partners in. Just being liberated from nonsense like this should be worth a 5 win swing every year.

                To be fair to everyone on this board, I don't remember a single poster who didn't expect the loss of Wheeler and Syndergaard to knock this team below .500.

                But they're not exactly a bad team. They have a lot of good 2nd basemen, corner outfielders and 1st basemen. I don't want to see any of them go, but there's enough assets to keep or trade, plus signings, to build a contender by next season. If they'd re-signed Wheeler, they'd be in the playoff mix right now.

                  They have 9 position players 28 or younger (McNeil being the old guy) who could help build a contender. One old player in Cano that can still hit.
                  I agree with you that they can contend next season. I hope to be able to be in the stands to see them play.

                  • Guillermo Heredia will wear No. 15 for the Mets tonight. The team has now issued that number three times since Carlos Beltrán left in January: to Brian Dozier, Juan Lagares and Heredia.

                    • 14 strikeouts for deGrom! Matches his career high! BEST. PITCHER. IN. BASEBALL.

                      ...And he has a chance to win 3 straight Cy Youngs AND not see the playoffs in ANY of those seasons.

                      • Jacob deGrom strikes out 14 and of course the Mets didn't score anything for him.

                        • Mets lose 2-1, Cano tried to make it interesting in the end, blah blah blah

                          • Ok so with the Mets out of the playoffs the only thing to root for is Jake to win the CY.

                            I am leaning towards Darvish right now as the winner. Both pitchers have one start left.

                              It will come down to what each of the 5 front runners do in their final start of the season. Right now, I think Fried has the edge over deGrom.

                                Good trivia question. It is a shame they have not made it to the postseason. I give Jake three more seasons of dominance tops, hopefully they can get a couple of decent starters this offseason and Noah comes back.
