one more than one is like last.
The one finally finally one away any and we started this dream.
Let's wait a minute.
I made a little go.
I'm gonna fix that.
I have your fix that logo, but I believe the after storage purposes on my phone.
So I gotta read down this out, and I gotta really figure out what I'm gonna do with this legacy.
So let's see, Jonah, um, we will. Badly.
We will not be talking about the Mets previous names because they are not to be.
They're not something to be looked at ending, happy about in any way because five and nine minutes.
I've always thought they were a team that has pretty good starts on bad season to background up like they just go downhill from there.
Like, remember the 11.
01 Start the at the house, Maybe tomorrow.
One idea, Like 11 1 Starting that, you just suck.
Yeah, over the Marlins don't go 11 1 because I mean the stroke Mets and even 70 more certain, and they just suck, but it's beginning ties up.
Let's just started off with things that I have noticed.
First off, I have noticed one main big issue.
That is Pete Alonso.
Has he lost his power because he's only hit one home run this season? What do you think? I'm not looking and it positively mascot I must go to.
I don't think that it's well, Yeah, I think the Mets got to him because they're the Mets.
But I think that it's not a problem with this power, like increasing or anything.
I think it's just that, um, something the, um, some previous X and Y broadcasts talked about was he has a hitch in his swing, which he didn't have and lock season, and it's messing up his swing to become more been undercut.
And they talked about hot like Sorry, an uppercut.
And so they talked about how Pete Alonso, really, he's not really a home run.
His mobile line drive hitter, who does hit line drives really far, and they'd come home months.
So what? They What they say is that he's having, like, kind of like a home like ah, home on undercut swing off everything.
And that means that he's Loa.
He's missing low on every pitch that he try swing yet, So that's why he's one of the probably one of the reasons why he's been striking out so much.
So I think they've tried planning if you like meetings between him and the heading coaches.
But hopefully that he can get that fixed because if he continues to perform like this, the Mets can't afford to put him as high as we're putting him into the lineup.
Yes, I did see this to like one of the games they were showing his swing from one last year, Teoh this year what we've seen so far, and I think it just developed a bad habit.
He developed a bad habit, not playing baseball for so long.
He developed this bad hitch.
And, um, I think you just needs to get back into his rhythm.
So I do think just more batting practice and I hope that you can figure out this, that have it and just get it out of were out of like his system because right now he's batting just over 200.
He has one home run.
He's really struggling.
Eso the Mets need Alonso to be very to be successful and well He's playing like the classic Met thing earlier where you kind of suck after showing that you're good.
So like, I don't see, I don't know anyone like the only time this would happen is if it was gonna happen. Mets.
But I think he just needs to figure this out.
Um, I hope this is the long term issue.
I hope you can figure out the hitch and stop it and go back to where he waas.
At the end of last year, he was very, very good, and he was back in 2 60 was just crushing the ball.
So I think the Mets need him if they're going to be successful.
And his struggles shows the Mets kind of struggles with him struggling.
The Mets are not doing well either, so it is a big problem with Mess.
I think they need to figure it out in the in your future.
What have you seen out? Of course, ello and Walker so far this year.
And do you think that is good enough for the Mets starting rotation? Do you think that they're they should play from us, But this in the coming years if because I don't think they have enough time to get rid of them.
But do you think they're they're really they're not performing well.
Well, that's pretty tough to say, because I think we knew when they were when we were coming to the scene and that they were become they weren't gonna become like top level pictures.
I think we knew that.
But I think that especially was the the arrive of David Griffin and his success that I think that with, I think, having maybe one of one out of the two out having one out of Walker Purcell Oh, I think that would actually that would actually go to kind of help the Mets because I could understand keeping one of them cause they're both kind of similar pictures, that they're both veteran pitchers that have kind of lost their group over the past like two seasons.
So I think that we'll be fine to keep one of them because they kind of something.
Bill of goods starts and sometimes I'll have some lots of great starts and we've seen that and I think specifically walk a lot.
But I think that having both of them.
It kind of puts a lack of consistency between, like, old between the line of it causes the Mets to go from, like, losing, like, letting up two or three months in the first day and the 1st 2 innings to loading up six.
And so I think that when Stroman comes back, which hopefully he will come back soon.
I think I wouldn't really be too surprised to see if they possibly took out Porcello or Walker for Stroman and kept Peters in there.
Yeah, um, thank you would also be good for walking or sell it kind of pictures battle.
I could push them to kind of do better than they are and to be more consistent on the mound.
So I think they're definitely one.
Stroman comes back.
I think there one of them is going to be on the chopping block because we have seen David Pearson do very solid, very nice and do very solid in his starts so far this season.
And he is looking very good for the Mets this year and in the future being rookie.
So yeah, I think any I think, uh, that they should keep They should have just keep one of them kind of make a little pictures battle teaching about a lot of it, for I think they should move David Peterson up and then just move either Walker per celeb into the fifth spot and have Stroman third.
Then you have our second, I think, would be deGrom's Stroman, Matt's Peterson and then Walker Purcell.
Oh, that I think, would be the order.
But, like I think they need to create a pictures that a lot of this kind of see which picture could be more consistent at the on the mound, in which one can do the best for the Mets and be the best pitcher in future.
Ferments are not the future.
But this year for the minutes, Um, so this is what has movements on along to another question.
What have you seen from the last time we've done the last three game? That's with runners in scoring position.
Obviously, when we did it last time they were, they were really struggling.
What do you think? Do you think they've improved? Do you think they kept very kept struggling with runners in scoring in scoring position? What do you think about that? Well, I think that I feel like they've improved a tiny bit, but I don't think it's gonna be enough for this Mets lineup.
They're definitely, I think they're definitely bear at least getting a few hits with understands going illusion now.
But I think that we for the Mets low.
Why not that we for the crazy offensive line if we have, we're still not knocking enough buttons for our pictures, especially considering that when we came into the season, we knew that offense was gonna have to curious and that our starting 15 it's got to be decent because we knew our bullpen with probably was, had a chance to struggle and its most pitchers in that somewhat struggling.
So I think the the offense, the size and stepped up to where it needs to step up.
Yet I think it's it's much better than it was last time to get it granted.
But it's not enough for this lineup and we need to see just We need to see more consistent hitting with runners.
It's going position and just more r b.
Yeah, I think, um that the amount of run runners in scoring position.
They have gotten.
You just shows that they can get there.
They can get runners on these thinking put up runs, but they just haven't been delivering in those high pressure at bats.
They've not been delivering with two outs and Runner on second as much.
They've been improving slightly, but not have not been playing at the level that they can play offensively.
And I think it just reflects their five and nine record.
Their pitching is not as good as it was in recent years.
Well, with their starting rotation losing Ah Syndergaard for this year and then Wheeler.
So I think they just they need to be able to rely on their offense to carry them forward this year if they're going to be successful and, well, they've not been delivering on that end of the stuff terms.
So I think that, um, they just need to figure out how to knock some run some more runs in when they get when they get runners in scoring position, they need to be able to deliver with us on those high pressure.
That's but, um, along with the pigeon, I am another points.
Bring up, and this is more of a question.
Do you think the metsbullpen is worse then it was last year.
I'm gonna say currently in its state.
And this is why I think that obviously, I think we haven't seen the best stuff we've ever seen out of Wilson, and we go so far.
But I think that can change.
And I think they can settle into a group for us this season.
And I think that, with the addition of people like the Kansas, and also surprisingly familiar, has been doing pretty good.
I think that with those people, if they just if they kind of become, they just show what show consistency with their position.
I think that I think that it will definitely show that I think the best bullpen is better than it was last year.
And so far I'm not saying and when Bs is great.
But he's not been nearly as bad as he was like here his last week, even blowing like half for me, half of our games that we should have been winning and I don't think that's an exaggeration, but that's what it felt like.
Yeah, I think I think that, Yes, I proved your point.
I don't think it's good.
Buying means I don't from their bullpen is good.
You've seen will go struggle in some games.
You've seen well since struggle all around.
We've seen a bunch of the Metsbullpen struggle, but I'm thinking that it is better than it was last year because last years calling to watch their bullpen.
But I am not saying it's good and I'm not saying it's a week because of this, the only really to you, Uh, familia who? I don't think we've seen really not Fog Teoh.
Be like he's so much better than was last year.
But you really only have Wilson and luego and the way the Mets have been pitching like with 67 innings.
Usually, Google and Wilson will pitch in the same tight game, meaning that for the next games you can't pick up.
You can't you won't pick be ableto pitch luego Wilson in the bullpen, which kind of leaves your bullpen out to dry because those are the driving forces of your bull can.
So that's I think they have a kind of a lack of depth in their open and I think that's what hurts what's what's hurt them last year, and I think it's gonna hurt them this year as well.
But I get I think, that the addition of chances is gonna help with their deaths, no doubt.
But, um, I think it's like me better than it is like once last year.
But I don't think it's I don't think it's good by any means.
You're even that.
I agree that it's definitely not good by any means.
But I think that with I'm not saying obviously what you said before Familia the Speed people.
He had a small like sample size of in anxiety and he's been doing well, But that doesn't mean, he said.
We welcome us to the season.
But I think that he like with, if I agree, like we've been pitching luego and Wilson like the same game a lot, which means we don't have them basically for the next game, either of them.
So I think that means that we need specifically I think, um, the tennis and familiar toast step up because I don't know, but Kansas, but I don't for me.
Leo can definitely in some serious like Phil multiple weddings, and I think that if we have some start from like Walker or something and they don't go enough innings, I think that they need toe possibly like this.
Step off, and that will make the line. It better.
Oh, I have something to counteracted.
Okay, I don't I think familiar might pitch multiple innings, but he was a closer.
He was a closer, and I don't think the Mets it's just not a question of the like whether he can pitch multiple innings. This question.
Will the Mats actually pitch familiar in multiple innings? And I don't think they will.
Quite honestly, I do not think they will pitch familiar multiple innings.
I think chances might actually be more like will probably be more likely to be pitched multiple endings.
In my opinion, that's just not what I think, because really was closer for the mess.
Yeah, before he went to these.
I don't think he's pitching multiple innings that often.
Well, I don't think he's gonna pitch fulfilling every time, but I think that he has the capability to and I think that the Nets are accepting the bowl now that is not their closer and they're trying to make the as our clue.
Oh, I think that he I seen him pitch hold plays.
But I think that if he shows the consistency that he has the past few games in the book the first few games of the season, then I think that I think it would be smart for the Mets to try.
Maybe try pitching in maybe like, one maybe like, one in, like, a few third dividend, and it doesn't have to be a full Tim.
You heard in that instant after? I do.
Yeah, I do agree with you or not.
Yeah, I think that I agree with you on that point there, but by the way, you're killing me.
A fantasy baseball tickle yards.
This doesn't even look that your team all like public twice a week on.
And I still have cologne in my lack.
Who's not agent? No, you're You're Ben.
She's No, no, no, this is us.
I know, but, um, yeah, Oh, yeah.
It's 2 55 twenties bad, but And you have your counties dropped, like five million people.
But we're going off guys xgo on a different note.
Let's go back to the street So next line.
So leading our Ahmed Rosario.
Then you have Jeff McNeil.
Van Second, GDD.
Better for kids playing D Each uh, he's rocking that D H spot.
He's playing first.
Uh, does your eight Hamilton ninth? So what do you see with this line? Well, I see that some players are some players were definitely some players, like are probably just having an off day for today.
Like obviously what they've never He's he's not playing today.
And, yeah, so he's not playing which? Yeah, I think he's played every game so far this year, So it hurt.
I think it's perfectly fine for him, toe not play today, but I think that it was It's a bit weird to see people Aw, Alonso at D.
H and Smith playing first, cause we haven't I don't believe we've seen that yet.
Oh, no, it was spoke.
They did that yesterday, but we haven't much.
You haven't seen that too much yet.
I mean, I mean, Smith is better defensively, I can tell you that.
I think I think Smith is better defensively.
I mean, neither of them is exceptional defensively, but I think I've seen close.
I don't but I think Smith is a little bit.
But just notably Re Steen Peter Enns are slowly fall from third and second were it's now this slowly falling down where Davis is now.
It's kind of surprising, but they're rocking Milan's Rosario lead off with Without Nemo.
I completely understand.
It's either Nemo's nine.
Resorted as first reserve are Rosario's Ninth Nemo's first.
You're kind of rotating those guys from the bottom to the top, but with Nimmo nut.
With Nimmo having off day, that's what they're rocking this time.
So you see, does your and Hamilton What do you think about the back line back, Um, with the back end of the vetting or, well, I see.
Obviously, we see Billy Hamilton, who is starting his first game as a Met If Open.
Nope, I'm gonna yet, but he's he's a new edition and he's founding nights in.
I think that's kind of a smart play.
He's replaced and see.
I think they also I think that same time of as giving Nimmo a break.
They also trying are starting Billy Hamilton at center field in front of them just to see how he does, because he's kind of in a similar situation as, uh, Rosario and Nemo and that he gets on base a lot usually, and he's also fast.
So you Kikkan steal bases.
So I think he's a symbol of scenario.
So I think that's I think I like him at nine.
Obviously, right now he's replacing Cano, and he's all the way down eight, which, considering yes since how much he's been struggling up.
Not really surprised, to be honest.
And then Smith at seven.
I personally, he's actually been doing pretty well headed wise recently compared to the US to this lineup.
And I think that I think that he could possibly be a one or two spots pyre.
But I don't look, that's just May.
So yeah, but yeah, really.
Hamilton is kind of he's more of an on base guy, But, um, with that, let's move on, Teoh.
One of the main parts of this, uh, these shows and that is ideal batting lamps.
Do you have yours? Your me first on.
I'll have bizarre opening.
First, I'll have McNeil second, I'm gonna have Conforto hitting third.
I'm gonna have long and so forth.
I'm gonna have Davis Davis 50.
I'm gonna have we have Smith six have Ramos seventh on the dozer eighth and help Hamilton.
Yeah, I think I'm probably I think I might have the same exact thing I have.
Rosario, First meal second.
Yeah, and then I liked what you did with Conforto batting third and then Davis moving back because I think Conforto has more power.
Guy, I think he's just better student for that position, like in the batting order.
And I just think that's where he should be If you're gonna put if you're gonna switch out Alonso in that third spot, Um, then I have I have Jenny Davis batting fifth Lonza, Fourth days, fifth.
Then I'm switching Smith and Ramos actually going Smith upto fifth, Davis six and then Ramos 1/7 and then does your in Hamilton eaten right? I just think that Smith kind is vast.
So you gotta try and get rid of the double play.
Chance to still, sort of The Mets have kind of The Mets have grounded into a lot of double plays with runners in scoring position I have seen lately is that really smart? Very double play prone? So maybe a Yeah, I thought I probably make that change.
I thought so, I guess.
Yeah, I would make the trip.
Who? Smith's 5 56? Yeah, but yeah, I just don't understand.
I think that gave this third is a bit of a stretch.
I think it's just bit of a stretch.
Considering how his power and what he's done this year, I just don't think that he should be third.
I think he's more of a middle of the order. Die.
Granted, he's been doing better than Alonso was pretty Hobart.
No, it's a pretty low bar, considering how bad he's been this year.
Yeah, I definitely don't think he should be getting third, especially in this scenario.
Like I think having Conforto hit fourth I or fits, I think that's kind of I think that's kind of silly, because Conforto he's been one of like with in like our top five hitters other than like Visar yo And then, though and possibly McNeil.
He's been lonely guy who's been like, well, peaceable in terms of driving in runs.
He's basically been the only person who's been and that, like top five, has been consistently driving in runs.
So I think in this now, if you could definitely be and exert and I I think Davis, I think he's definitely a middle of the order left.
I don't think he's low, but I don't think he's all the way up there, either.
I think he's probably between four and six.
Yeah, I definitely think that he's more Romel the order guy, and I think that one of the big things with the Mets is they have a lot of middle of order guys.
In my opinion, you don't name a lot of them.
Mitt Davis, you're Ramos And then you have, you know, I don't know what's that way.
Do we go over the cess pit this issue? But that was a while back, so I don't think we should.
I mean, I expected I respect his decision to leave a respected decision to opt out of the season.
But only thing I do not respect with that move was the way he did it.
The way he did it was just just not right.
I don't understand why he did it, because that was such an important season for him, Money wise, it was such an important season to kind of get a contract next year.
Yeah, so I was doing fairly well in it.
He he needed to perform those probably one of the more, more important seasons his career, even though it is shortened, money wise and financially wise.
But I do respect his decision to opt out of the season.
It's just the way the manner did it, and not even contacting the Mets that he's going to do this.
Yeah, we just got up and left, Would you, in my opinion, is not the right way to say you're talking.
You know, this is my my.
What I'm thinking is, obviously I completely respect his decision to opt out in these shots, and I believe he said it was because he wanted took his mother.
So I'm perfectly OK with that.
It's just I'm obviously I'm not saying that he's he did it because he wasn't concerned about, like, felt like, especially since he had been spewed it struggling other than that first game way at the whole month We've been struggling, kind of just like Alonso.
Yeah, so I think that I'm like E.
I think that you might have.
I think this is, if you have been possible, that he might have just realized that he could have just not been ready for the season after about playing baseball for so long.
And I think that I agree cause I think that the method really smart enough, the or love, like the GM man like managers, everything.
I think they're really smart enough to realize that if like since POTUS isn't gonna play the entire season this year, it's gonna be a lot harder to think about signing him back next year.
Possible it? Yes.
So I think that that was kind of I was surprised to see that because that means that either really really cares about the safety of his family and stuff, cause I would think then he would have opted out from the beginning.
But I think that the way he did it kind of almost feels like he realized he wasn't ready.
But obviously again, I think that it's completely fine to care about your family and protecting them.
Yeah, I am completely fine.
I completely respect his decision of opting out of the season with all the Corona virus in the outbreaks that we had in the first week of the season with the Marlins, the Phillies and the Cardinals.
So I completely respect his decision to opt out.
It's just the manner he did.
It was kind of weird.
It was just a weird way to Connie opt out of the season and say that you will not play this year.
We'll go over quickly the Marlins lineup when we just pull this up because I couldn't find it on Twitter.
Just kind of want me.
Yeah, so, yeah, uh, you'll are betting First Birdie banning Second AG you are Bank Third Core.
****erson batting fourth.
Anderson betting fifth surveilling batting sixth brings in batting seventh.
Betting E in Harrison batting ninth And then you have Daniel Castano picking.
So what do you think about this lineup and what is What do you see like I'm like, why have has the Marlins have moments been doing so with? I think that so part of it is that I think they've actually despite obviously half 13 getting the virus and stuff like that.
I think that they've always I I feel like they bounce back from that really well and I think that with their lineup, obviously they're still going through a rebuild.
But I think they did a really good job, like putting like making like public key signings, that of like, players that like like really good players.
But players that wouldn't be like hitting this high like this high in the lineup.
Like I think that probably for a sum like I think like ****erson, I don't think he would be hitting third and work with one isn't Borland's and I think that I think these players on the Marlins are realizing that they're the key players in this team right now and it might not feel like it cause they probably haven't been before.
But I think they really stepped up and they chilled.
But they can actually deeds like top of the order hitters and I think that with all it was, especially with them bouncing back from that huge setback of a lot of their players getting the virus, I think that Stroh's that these players actually kind of care about winning, which is from the Marlins, is pretty impressive because they're in a low point in the season and like there, existent trying how, basically, because they're in a rebuild and their main focus is their younger, like Vitaly players and finally happening well, So it's kind of it's kind of a struggle for them but that they've been showing that there ready for and that I think my like euros to them about that.
Children they've been get.
Yeah, I think they just came out of the gates a lot more prepared than the rest of the cheese.
Obviously, the their outbreak kind of sit them back.
They bounced back really well.
They've been hitting very nicely.
Pitching's been OK.
It's not in the greatest, but they've been hitting very well.
They've been doing very well batting wise, and they've been putting up runs against the Phillies.
They put up a lot of runs.
The Phillies do have week pitching depth and their bullpen is not great, but they were putting up very nice saw and runs.
I eat the weak spot in this team is kind of their pitching.
Their batting has been doing very well in the beginning, but I I think I don't.
I don't see them doing.
I see them coming out very well.
They just came out a lot better than the rest of the teams, and I don't see no them carrying this on for a while.
As other teams get more flow things, I don't see them get continuing this furrow longer time as teams get their bets going there, pitching and going.
But for the time being, I do think they've been very solid.
They've been hitting very well.
Their pitching has been okay and they have a lot of their starters out at the moment.
I see them getting better, but I don't see.
I see the other teams getting better with time.
Also, as they get more into the flow of baseball, I see I think the Marlins are are going to be more like I think they're going to slow down in the Win column in the next couple of games.
But, um, they have been doing very well at the gates.
It just I don't see them continuing this on in a very I agree.
Yeah, I also think that they just don't.
They don't have the pitching.
And as the other teams as they played better against better pictures like nationals like the Nationals, who have a great three men rotation and Corbyn Strasbourg and shares there.
I don't think they will.
Their bats will be able to do as well because, like you said there, these batters aren't really used to be in the core of their team.
They're more a middle of the pack guys who are not the worst, but not the greatest, either.
So they're betting has been doing well.
But I do expect that to slow down, and as a result, with their pitching not doing not being great, you nothing great, either.
It will slowly fall off in the win column, but with this starting a 16 game season, I wouldn't be surprised if they get a fair amount of winds.
Considering that, uh, we're, Ah, we're already over almost 26 the way there, we're almost We're like, five minutes away from to 16 to 60 the way there is the same.
But, um, I do think they will slowly fall out of the window.
You do you have any thoughts on that? Are Um, yeah, I I agree.
I think that no, no, look, no offense to miss Bronstein, but I don't believe that they're gonna continually perform like this. Great.
And I think that part of that might either pitching because currently, obviously the picture isn't great, but it's not doing terrible.
So I think that we could probably see it start to sink lower and lower.
And I don't think that the headings that a state where at the very high level it is.
But I think that if the Marlins consistently do it, I think that they can finish with record that most people were thinking that was gonna be much worse.
But I don't think they're gonna be playoff contenders.
But I think that they're gonna show that they put in effort this year and they tried to be a indemnity.
Yeah, I do think that they might actually make the playoffs, considering with their star.
Actually, with this it, I wouldn't say they would be compliant contenders.
I would not be saying they were played, could play content in the tacky players and the tendon playoff with the start, I would still say that runs or not, class content T.
But with the 16 team playoffs, they could be still the third seem away. And still.
I'm thinking it's more with a 50 50 kind of thing on that making missing are making class this year.
What there's But, um, Peterson, I feel like, is the better picture in this matchup.
You've been doing a lot better.
I just feel like he's a better picture in this matchup.
And I think the Mets have a lot better batting.
I think they have.
The rest of teams in the N L East are fueling our better teams.
I feel like they're better teams, depth wise offensively and pitching wise, unless you're affiliates who have pre bad pitching.
But I feel like they're better teams, and I just don't and that the aliases good to.
I just don't feel like the Marlins will be able to contend with that, that for the longer period of time in for the rest of the season.
So I think they will definitely fall off.
But, um, movie a hunt to the, uh, final session area part of this thing and that is, uh, that is I'm going to be.
I just have one more question, basically.
So what do you think about the Mets? Just a mess.
Uh, what do you think that the Mets as a team? What do you think their weak points have been other than their bullpen this year? And what do you think their strong points have been this year? Well, little their ups and downs.
I think that it's kind of like a mixed sort of bag for like, because I feel like they're not.
Although they're shaped to be one, like, extremely like Like one part of, like baseball Central team, which is swiftly their offense.
They kind of like Ben like if he and all the categories like they haven't been terrible, but they have a great great either.
So, like their offense, they have some great players who are performing well.
They have Nimmo, they've Rosario.
It can Ford up and, you know before you got injured.
And, like Alonso, like Brooke, like Ramos for a while.
Those guys are really struggling, and they're supposed to be.
They're supposed to be good hitters for the Smith's team and must depend on them, and it's a lot.
It's luff with the it's all the same with the starting lineup obviously to drop.
He's extremely consistent.
Then you have porcelain, porcelain walker.
Extremely inconsistent end.
Not as good picture, not as big pictures as grommets and we have.
That's who is free, inconsistent to.
And I think then there will Pen is just basically the same thing.
Like usually, Luego and Wilson are basically the only two good pitchers, and that's kind of like that's kind of still the same.
They tied off off these and I think that they can bounce back of it and currently the rest of the Open.
Other than Camelia, we don't know if you could continue to do great because he has before.
As he has shown, I think that is just the same.
And I think that for the Mets, really to be successful, a city their offense has to step it up.
Blondeau stepping up Davis.
It's has to step it up when you know come when Snow comes back, he needs a show that he was hitting the way he was hitting before he got injured and I think that we need toe step up.
Offenses were supposed to be probably one of the top 10 even maybe like top five offenses in the whole league.
I think I think we have the capability to do that.
But we currently would not showing that all because if all of our players show up and you consistently weaken, we've seen that or bottom of the lineup.
People usually like mid line up people.
They've been like hitting well. Smith.
He's been hitting well.
I don't think anyone really expected too much out of him.
It's actually this year, but he's been doing well, so I think that all the other place, I think they like all the players who have been struggling, they got to step it up cause if someone like steps up their game, then the Mets are back in business and their scoring runs.
And I think that that could be they could become very successful from that.
Yeah, I think that I do agree with you.
I think when compared to Marlins, I think that the Mets are the office.
It in the sense in the way they started off the mention look slow.
They've looked bad and looked inconsistent in the start when the Marlins have looked very solid, Uh, in there.
Start and that is just so not shown on the record call.
It's just the Mets have been inconsistent across the board.
You've had players that that the Mets that everyone expected to do very well this year.
Coming off great years.
You have Neil, you have Lonza.
You know Davis who did very well come up last year and really was a big shock because no one expected anything of Davis going toe last year.
So, uh, all these banners that were very, very good last year The Mets are going to rely on this year to be successful.
They need to acknowledge that, and they need to step up their game like you set.
They need to bring the me to play at the level that they were last year, and I just don't think we've seen that so far.
We've seen them struggle.
We've seen them, not under the using that underperformed.
We've seen enough get into bad habits like a laundry with the hitch.
That's a bad habit, and he needs to figure that out.
But we've seen it kind of go up in a sluggish start like the I feel it that they've been.
They were unprepared, in a sense, coming into this start into the season.
And it's John in the fact of I feel like the Balkan has been as inconsistent as ever.
You've seen everyone have their ups and downs, and shockingly Familia has been probably one of the best bullpen pieces is that they have, and I mean familia.
No one expected you to last year.
He was a disaster, and like the only person that's been actually remotely good is familia, and I don't know if you could hold that in any way.
I think they just need their more prominent bullpen pieces to step up, bring the rest of bullpen up with it, and I think they need the starting pitching.
You need Graham, who's been doing great.
You need toe just fall.
You need Peterson to do well.
You need mats to stop being so inconsistent, will pitch a great game and then come back and just completely blow up and just get shelled.
And I think they just need to figure out they need to stop being so inconsistent.
Like you said, they need to be consistent at the plate.
They need to be better in the bullpen.
They need to be better pitching wise, and I just think all around the board they kind of struggled and they've come off as kind of un prepared.
And that has shown.
But, um, I think the pot one of the main positives of this year has been David Peterson.
He's been doing great, considering that came up from that.
Uh, this year has been doing great, Azzan rookie.
So I think that's a big positive going off future.
But, um, I think the Mets need to step it up.
And I think if they can win today with Peterson, we have Graham tomorrow.
So if they can go back to back wins, I think that they will.
It might put them propel them forward in the next couple of games.
So I today is gonna be a big game for the Mets trying Teoh be a six and nine team rather than having 10 losses in going five and 10.
So I think that today today is a big game prevents, considering how short this season is to see if they can figure out a way to get out of this slump and me put together a nice winning streak.
You have to ground tomorrow on your Peterson today.
You've been very solid for them.
So I think if their offense can get going and Peterson could do well, I think they're a good shot at this game and hope.
And they have the They have a good shot tomorrow, and hopefully that can use this pushing forward.
But you have anything else to say before we sign off? Um, there is one of the thing Wean.
I forgot Talk like David open.
Um, obviously, as a reason, the Mets signed Jared Ewg's and I think that this, um
