Indian out of years.
So we have the together and let's just without for 30.
Begin in pre game shelf for the Mets.
First raised brains.
Opening days. Series.
Air started between that, but, um, first going to begin with the Braves.
Good way I started Mets fishing Brace.
Okay, first up, we gotta go with the Mets starting lineup.
So leading off Brandon Nimmo at center field, you have Jeff making yacht their base.
He can really play Alonso at third and order.
He's at first base.
I really like the launching Carpenter's.
They're not moving from Queen Upto third, just so they could get at bats in the first.
You can Formula right field batting for you.
Ain't assess Pittis betting fit at the age, which is actually kind of surprising.
How high up in order he is, considering the injury that came out last year and most of 2018.
Robinson Cano, sixth at second base.
Davis at left field, spending. Seventh.
Wilson Ramos Betting teeth.
It catcher, which is kind of surprising, generally, and Rosario in the ninth hole at shortstop, and then you obviously know Jacob the ground on the mound So you're just gonna throw this out? We can rotate on who's going to say this, but what do you think about? I'm just gonna pull out like some things.
What is it about Ramos? Ease Nimmo leading off and then cess Pittis in this what you think about those? I'm actually fine with Nimmo leading off.
Um, he he just gets on base.
And I think it's a better spot for McNeil, who led the league, Won't know, didn't lead the league, but was top 10 in doubles in the National League last year.
Um, and top 20 hits.
So I think with Nemo's ability to get on base force walks really put in some hard at bats for pictures.
I think we'll be able to get on base and then be like us set up for make from meal toe, maybe move them up with a single and then have we look up and there's first and third Alonso coming to play with no outs.
I think it's actually a fairly good spot for Nimmo, and I'm fine with that position, but I definitely think that's a good point there.
But what do you think that Ramos and eat in the eight bank ease.
That kind of surprised me.
Yeah, well, because my mama flocks here was heading very well, Frost.
And he did a very good job.
He got hit loss of us.
He had a really long hits.
I mean, so I was about always, like, a 60 day in things week.
So that shows that he definitely showed up last year.
So I feel like I understand that obviously, this must lap is pretty staffed and they've got lots of good interest, but I feel like he might need I feel like he made it.
Could be a few more spots talk.
So for me personally, I probably have him at least that call me.
Definitely that seventh, if not 56.
Yeah, I think that just Ramos batting East kind of shows the depth.
Let's have at the plate and you're still on.
Still, you have Dominic Smith and the bench who's also very solved that I think we actually might see it's not a long shot.
Robinson Cano rotating at the G eight sometimes because of how him being older player.
But I just got personally surprised just because of how long he's been out of him being this high in the batting order.
What do you think about your incest? But it's batting.
Well, he he waas Good, considering that the last game we played, uh, he home run, But I don't think will be same cess Pittis.
He won't be able to run as effectively.
Uh, he doesn't have the same value getting Waas.
I think, in my opinion, I would move J D Davis from the seventh spot in the order, maybe like the fifth spot in front of su****ion.
No, I mean, I know Cano had, like, had a really good second half, but it wasn't exceptional, and he his first half was really bad.
So I would move JD Davis to the fifth spot and maybe your first stop.
Say this you never had your necessities in his whole career is a speed you He's not never ran well before the hell thing, nothing more.
He was averages run at running bases.
But now we really lost, uh, some of the he was average.
So before we go over the braves, we're just gonna go with our idea.
Totally batting order.
Eso save the batting order movements for later.
So what do you What do you think? Do you think that the batch for the Mets are going to be a driving force instead of pitching? Which would be actually a change from what it's been for the last couple of years? Do you think that the batting is now better than the pitching this year? I would definitely say so, because especially for this year, with Syndergaard out and we lost Wheeler and now we Burba lying on your cellar and what goods are openly trying to step up, I feel like it's safe to say that currently, the inning is much better than our kitchen, and obviously or bullpen is still a major question.
It is a defining factor in our case.
It's the tensest does well, if Camilion does well, PS steps up after his terrible season last year, so I think that right now is definite. 60.
The things better because I know lots of people say like oh, garnered.
Brett Gardner is worst care of the Yankees, and considering somebody's that it shows how good the Yankees are.
Well, it looked the Mets light and that's batting order.
It's the same thing you got like Wolf and more moves, he said in Gate.
And he is one of the carpeting captures only one of the top five in categories, and the entire I will be.
So I definitely think that right now the city is gonna be the defining factor of this Nets team.
Yeah, I agree with you on the that, but I still think the hitting can't really carry this team.
I think that they need the bullpen and the starting pitcher really step up on its own, won't carry this team to the postseason.
But then again, with the 16 team playoffs, which I'm not a big fan of any, I it's really a possibility for the hitting carry this team far.
I think I just have to mention that you said earlier point, You said and you thought that Ramos was one of the top five catch in the league, I necessarily wouldn't say that.
I think there are some bettering that you're saying that he's more top 10 guy.
That's what he still you still very you still very solid at plate usury.
He's very good with runners on base.
He was very solid with voters on these last year.
I think that Ramos is good.
I think that the reason made some of one of the reasons for having that.
It is that you know, this lineup, that I really like poor people around the base path.
And Wilson Ramos is not this not fast.
It'll be like what it might be like one of the higher level batting catchers might.
You may be having closed person in the MLB made.
He's one of these.
All right, he's a contender for the slow are the snail snail on Beef Beach Paths Award that I just created a created.
Everyone imagines Tonto Awards ceremony at the end of baseball.
So just like creating like some awards and just seeing out, Yeah, we're showing excellence on these bath.
So moving on, we not the geometric and no surprise what it is.
It's Jacob Graham, the Mets East, back to back Cy Young winner looking for his third in a row against Lights Arocha for the Braves.
So this is too little pictures that have been really solid over the past two years.
Over the past years, you have Soroka who's been really saw it.
And then you have the Graham who obviously has posted up insane a raise.
73 minutes in his first Cy Young year in his back to that.
And then he had 82.
43 last year on us. Arocha.
What a 216 e r a.
Last year, 13 and four, or 1.
11 whip, which is very solid in and of itself.
Do you think we'll have, like a pitching duel with the Stack Ben lineups that both, he seems, have but the very solid pitching that they're facing? I think it will be a close game and close whoring, but I don't think we'll see the pictures really go far into this game.
I think the batters will have a lot of tough at bats against the pictures, really Elevate both pictures pitch count, but eso I think the pictures might go to the max maybe six innings each, um, and maybe score three runs each.
I don't know, but it will be a Well, I'm thinking that at Max.
If you're gonna put these pictures at having lowing, I would say you gotta go with the maps.
They're just gonna go at Max six.
I think what the Graham has is like in the 80 to 85 pitch range to his back, so he'll probably only 16.
But I think he getting each one of them is going to go to seven.
At least that one of them would probably say Rocca, because the ground with his back I the Mets won't pushing past 85.
But I still think that they're they're just really soft pictures.
I think they think you go soon.
Even in this day and age were where there still were.
Starting pitchers are going less deep into games, and bullpens are becoming more and more prominent as years go on.
What do you think? Death run about? For the stitches to go? I think I think my what This game's gonna look like this.
I don't believe anything could be looking for one pitching duel.
I leave the thing that's gonna show up.
I don't think it's gonna be a crazy school in game.
I think they're probably gonna pay school.
I think that the pictures will be stolen.
I think the story, which is gonna be I feel like it's only a little needy two or three earned runs through something within the kind of starting.
So I think that the pitching and hitting kind of evens out because obviously got to be good. You sunstroke underground.
And then you got the two great lineups with the Braves and the vest as their ratings.
Yeah, Yeah, I like your points there, but we're gonna have to move on to the bullpen for the Mets.
That's the biggest question mark with the addition of Dilma teens is we saw what he could do with the Yankees.
Uh, also with the pitching.
With the bullpen comes step luego who actually might, we might see start some games.
Maybe we're like 45 innings to start because Marcus Stroman is on a 10 day i o Do you dio back pain And what do you think about the bullpen? Especially if set legalized going Teoh start need some games? Well, if says flu does start, I think that would That would, um I don't think it would necessarily hurt the bullpen, considering that they have pretences Diaz and Familia.
But if he starts.
Did you just say Because they have, uh, the chances are fun with Dia's fine with familiar familia.
Familia is appalling.
He was probably one of the worst off moves.
The medicine aid.
They signed a bad contractor, Familia Familia.
Not a wreck last year.
They should just keep him in a shooting familia, no matter what.
It's met, and they're paying him a ton of money.
They're going to play Amelia.
No, they're not.
They should these you just keep him in the bullpen.
Say we're gonna pay.
You are not even playing.
But you devalue.
Who's 13? He is not.
You should not right with this year.
But Seth, luego coming out of the bullpen.
He's not pitching every day.
So you're going to need some people toe action.
Well, look, Zalman, resulting Gizella into a rash risk.
Ilia element, the worst from warrior familia is bad.
You are will stop pitching every day's teaching, maybe once every three days.
And then if you slip during that same like every other day, every I mean they could push him to that.
But during the start, maybe once every three days, but out of what he's starting.
Uh, if he does start the matter should any guys like that way just after you? Teddy want Amelia stats? But he you want to pull up? Really? Stats? Yes, from really was bad.
But who else the Mets have? They have cancer.
They have ideas.
But who? L It's Wilson.
Nothing about little Wilson.
Guess Wilson is a good piece and Wilson had a good year last year.
Only left home, we'll see.
Oh, I mean, they just need their They need their fifth guy without usually neither.
Yeah, but he's I don't think we're going toe.
I don't think we live in a very long what Can you start the second game now? The second thing it's gonna be dig Rahmat, then pour Seller, then walk it and then we might see the heaters.
David, you're saying lock Walker lock It is for I know.
I think you got already ready for this, but ready with this and 170 in the r A.
60 innings to lay.
He could shift standings and those words 16 innings to make ways.
You many things.
60 innings too many.
So Okay, but who's your brush here? Booty Who? Yeah, absolutely.
Trash this after.
Probably worse since millions we bought with the blood disease.
You have a years and shot at rebounding because you've seen way.
Don't seem to eat how we got here.
Only that's likely.
What? No, no, you said Zelman that it was an alternate.
Alternate? Uh, Pritchard.
So he is bad as well.
So you're out. Alternative.
Tough Amelia is also bad.
I rather have e mean Deena's.
I think Ds has gone up.
Jesse's gonna rebound.
I think it's just e it.
Really you He's angry.
He's e I think not having fancy usually without the pressure of New York and stuff, really? That my family was I was only six point.
5 year also, then, while doesn't seem on the outside pretty song with luego the chances we still dia de you're Then you're probably gonna start.
Yes, I hope he's gonna have a rebound with outside.
They look pretty good that they don't have really any cool.
Sadly, mets don't really have that much broken down I don't really have that way.
Have bit familiar because you don't have a 1,000,000 selling Marina.
Yeah, I have Teoh way have eventually throughout the season, which is gonna be said, but hopefully in this first game because we still have the bullpen depth, We will see more than we know it, sire.
No, sire, to convict anyone we want.
So we will not see a minute.
Think you go on the chances and I at least one game.
1,000,000 exhibition years, some familiar.
I don't know what in 50 to 81 game? Well, I know the early I don't know what Don't move to the Braves starting lineup.
I would love to see their capture.
Yes, you just really like You really want Teoh gesture that I don't know.
I mean, Coben So leading off you got including the junior, which is pretty obvious.
Well, after this will be over.
The Mets, like, very deal like lineups for each of our like, for the best way to get out.
His second cream in there is gonna be interesting to see how Freeman does office like rebound from getting through because he said it hit on foreigners.
Nothing so, Yeah, I guess it hit him hard, but I think, Yeah, zoom in those days before I think will be Yeah.
Well, you have Adam's fit.
So Matt Adams have some good power he's use at the age.
Riley betting six at their base.
That's kind of interesting.
Yet the envy Swanson seventh.
You got injured Inciarte 88th And then you have Jackson at catcher batting nine.
He didn't really do much you didn't use.
This is one of these.
First time will be game. I don't understand.
I don't see much, really.
You know, because they were going to go with Donald Journalists Cove.
Right now is their guy for today And cancel our what? Flat.
What glass Beseech you need a river? I don't know.
I think Yeah, I may.
Probably because if Lee is, I think I know.
I said, here's what they have listed as their cultures.
But they wasn't Jackson.
You really have a betrayer.
Sorry about that.
I just wanted Teoh and then you have out Jackson, who is 20.
Yeah, You played four games.
He could not report it.
Okay, um, the Braves need more catching depth.
I know you're gonna go with no way.
We're going with the wrong Don't know.
But then they got kind of shut The Donald got going that that's going to hurt them in the catching position, because that's I think that's the main weak spot.
Also with Mark cake is opting out.
Led appalling report that kind of.
It's just gonna be interesting to see what they do.
Yeah, the Is it because it Yeah, I yeah.
I just don't like their capture right now.
I mean, awesome Riley batting bombs, Betting that see running six is kind of surprising over Swanson in syrup and zero.
I didn't do much to 26 average 18 home runs and 49 r B I's with a 7 50 yes, that's kind of surprising to see right there.
Well, he's sitting in CR fans one.
I have seen those who would be higher this once, and it is here them we're getting on base people.
So in giving lessons and widely it probably below Yeah.
Oh, talking president is that adults putting him at the ages.
Priest. Pretty solid idea.
I mean, that raised a good depth overall, just look like at the roster.
They're pitching is very solid.
So let Buster robe your full to dabble issue right? It's just it's really solid.
I think it's not great.
It's not at all exceptional, but it's good enough for them.
I think they're one of the top talk.
Teoh are like, I think they're second to third place NL team in like the entirety of the National League I looked in the first place would be Dodgers, obviously, Then I would say they're setting place their second best.
I still think I could be looking at the pigeon catcher.
I'm gonna have to go with the ground winning it.
Just not like, completely unbiased Mets Opinion column opinions.
But I think they then the era okay on to points.
They would have a pretty solid 12 punch if Syndergaard was healthy if he didn't have to go through Tommy John.
But there's any season to kind of miss with Tommy.
John, this is the one.
Yeah, I was going home 16 playoff format.
Yeah, but I think I just think that overall that the most.
The problem with the Mets the most.
I wouldn't say it's their starting pitching because they have read solid, you know? Okay, 12 punch in Graham Strommen.
Uh, you have to mostly washed players in a walker and Torsello on then.
That fifth spot is kind of is going to is not see a match, but you would probably pitch.
That's third CEO good three on and then to wash players.
So I think that my feeling will kind of rotate into started for the mess.
But I think he's really gonna stay bullpen.
Just add to both death.
I is that happen, go tension out.
But Texas and the S and M u and all those people hold the ball that because it's a better probably if you have no started when he was starting like you getting so it starts.
But obviously there may be that in the bullpen for a stroke, which very well could.
I think I'd rather see them go in the bullpen, maybe bring up like David Peterson has a as a 50 I in the location.
Well, that would just be to replace what you like.
Rabia. Like roti walkover.
Kind of e Roman isn't gonna be out for long.
I think it is just gonna get off.
He's going to get off the Islas soon as he can.
Yeah, so because that John is going to be Oh, so they have a rotation with Roman Mats, and Graham is the start is like the man three.
I think they might want to rotate like poor cell or walking kind of out because they're both kind of washed.
I would not be surprised for selling Go pitch eventually this season.
I think you would be more likely with without with Bob Stroman in the early part of the season.
That with Stroman in the later part.
I agree, because they're trying to definitely get care about Google being in the full on more in later seasons.
They're gonna probably be in contention to get what you guys think.
Like what? You're batting order from the Mets and be sure like the change.
The Mets, by order, I could only change like back to go on a little bit of a few people.
Uh, no, but don't you go first does this year have been willing.
So first just because everyone's kind of trying to figure themselves So I got but that you have Brandon about beating up tress MacNeille for second.
So I like the starting for off Nimmo batting first Neil second and then along to third and could foretell batting cleanup.
It's five through nine that I kind of want to rotate factor eight, actually, because I like Rosario at nine and Shoney's comfortable batting nine.
So, yeah, in later years s.
So I think just nine for Azarias. Good.
Just kind of bring up the rear.
I'm getting go or move Davis to sixth.
No back Teoh seven.
I I'm gonna move Rommel's up too thick just to kind of bring it all in because he's very good with runners on these And I mean, you cess minutes up to eighth because he really hasn't proven anything in a live game in 1.
So that's why I never first the Neil setting Long does their Fourtou for I have Ramos fit Davis six.
You know, seven cess pit its eighth and those are you nine.
So they won't have any problem I need Mine isn't think, Jack saying, but I don't really kind of cute falls.
Uh, what's your years? OK, so I agree.
I like I think I just changed a few things, like five, the way I like Missouri of it.
It nice because it helps having him buying sweat.
He can kind of set up for one of the top of the order comes up, even though I mean, it doesn't gets less attacks, but keep so I expect the other boy.
But I like him a leading off.
I think that team, I think, that considering material, I think usually it's more Extra Bases and Nemo as has a history of getting lots of walks in like hit by pitches itself.
I think it's so what with him at first feels that 2nd 1 so great a great at third, Um, Conforto fourth.
I move the canela the fifth because I'm kind of hoping that he sort of come back.
I think that if I think I'd be feel comfortable admitting that I've moved Ramos so six because he's obviously very good with runners in scoring position.
I've got separatists at seven and then I have Davis eight.
So I'm not saying Hey, this Is there anything that you could like? Davis.
But I just personally feel my other friend now separatist and almost.
And those people are higher.
Yeah, um, I just yet or your 5th 6th and seventh.
I need someone to break up that because there's a very high double play chance in there, too.
And it's your because Ramos, uh, running to first is is really slow.
Like Davis Davis is a run, you know, Run.
Would you suggest I do not? Davis is floating above average, like Right.
Uh, you know what you're saying? What? You're guiding idea? Like hell, I'm gonna keep 123 and four.
The same as Let's have it for open day.
I really like Nemo beating up.
And then you have and then Alonso for fifth spot.
I would have to put I think I would put Davis Jimmy Davis.
Uh, he had a breakout year last year.
He was really good.
Um, I I just think will be a very good middle of the order guy.
Um, then for six off, But, uh, you know, then seventh, I move upwards, Aria.
Um, because on, then all keep Ramos aid on.
I'll put suspect Seska this eighth.
Yeah, that's Oh, okay.
I forget your first again.
You know, I did.
You get the first floor, and then you're switched back again.
So, yeah, I like basically everyone everyone of ours had seen kind of just to be all kind of switched up five through eight or nine in the sense and kept the 1st 4 Uh, though, yes, Nero has really struggled and slumped, but get no, he consistently get on base with one Danes and you'll played 133 and walked 30 times.
So just throw that out there.
You're laughing here.
What was good? Smooth, um, track with lasers.
But here in a 375 on base percentage with 8 221 average, that isn't seeing difference.
When he was on average on waste, he was helping.
I changed my line of help.
1 2018 when he was healthy in 2018 he had a 404 on base percentage, which was second from that nationally.
But who feels left? I see baseball is kind of weird.
I made a negative one points or something.
It was like I got some lots.
I got shoe like mines for nuclear native with.
Do you want Teoh winning? Because my opponent got negative three.
I actually got zero points for movie. This.
Yes, you didn't out ahead.
But he got what, Three points, though, for Corey Seager.
That was the point.
He you had the personal playing.
Guess had Turner Coal and shares, er pit.
You get your every four or surprising.
That's kind of the war runs, But he had a lot of long strikeouts.
I think I'm really but I think they've kind of gone off track, but I think that will conclude our vets Pregame episode one.
We're gonna try and do this, Aziz, much as we can, uh, with our conflicting schedules, but I think we'll just the three of us try and do as many pretty in that shows us again.
Right so further in the year we can not get ready, you're gonna get ready for game.
So that will conclude our Mets brooding for the Mets opening day home opener.
That really doesn't affect anything except for lose the car book before he gave crowd noise.
That's a big I just have one working.
Just speak about before we close out the broadcast and go to watch The Meskhi is what? Who had bad camera angles with the nationals game do with s pen camera.
Notably seen in the Giancarlo Stanton and R B I single and I believe, like the fifth or sixth inning and it just goes behind home.
So the cameramen, Yes.
You can see the bulls fair if you don't know where using because it just goes to home late.
Then you have to re find the ball and everything is hoops.
You can't You can't understand why that's not.
You can see in Van Flexible, but along at ESPN, that is out of power.
It will that will conclude our first next reading show.
Next first graze.
I don't know how many times you're going to do this, but hopefully we'll do this.
A lot of war anytime.
Thanks for coming coming on.
And we'll see you next time on the channel.
Make sure you follow Teddy
