just go. 321 instant.
00:00:02
Oh, it was a record. I don't know.
00:00:05
I was one of the shorter ones.
00:00:07
I've seen him, but, um, I think live.
00:00:12
And we have Let's just wait a little bit.
00:00:15
I am phone.
00:00:16
I don't even care what I know it.
00:00:20
Phone time.
00:00:24
Seed. Quickly.
00:00:27
They set up.
00:00:32
I put the units on the jet, but, um, Donna started off with.
00:00:39
Well, mess are losing.
00:00:41
What? They're just ministers.
00:00:44
Okay, let's go.
00:00:47
So first off, we're going to begin with the Mets offense.
00:00:51
The Mets offense has been special, To say the least.
00:00:56
We've seen bits of Gregor's.
00:00:58
We have seen bits of I don't know what, but we've seen bits of just completely.
00:01:04
I can't hit the ball.
00:01:05
I'm just gonna swing and not do anything with it.
00:01:08
We have seen bits of getting runners on base and just not caring and flopping.
00:01:14
It's just been bad.
00:01:15
We have seen many inconsistencies with this Nets offense.
00:01:19
What do you think the Mets offense has been doing lately That has made them struggle offensively? And what do you think they need to do to overcome this? So the problem with the best offense is that they're getting their racking up lots of hits and getting lots of people on base.
00:01:39
But they're not fighting people in.
00:01:41
It'll like adults.
00:01:43
So I did some research, and currently the Mets are 25th in them.
00:01:50
Will be in months, scored her game, an average one scored for games.
00:01:53
So that's 3.
00:01:54
94 their last in runners left on base, bringing that's 8.
00:01:58
2 e two leaving E eight and 1/4 of people on base every single game without scoring.
00:02:05
And what's the What's the best team? Know what other teams around it? But the Mets? Um, I don't have high both about them or that it's low, but it's all I think.
00:02:17
It's like just like the teams that are struck, Yeah, revealing, considering that that's our last.
00:02:22
That's considering their offense that they have.
00:02:25
They should not be last.
00:02:26
They should definitely not be lost.
00:02:28
It should be higher.
00:02:29
They should be above average.
00:02:31
So, and the thing is there also there.
00:02:34
Ethan walks for game, their fifth in hits per game, and they're six and batting average.
00:02:42
So clip so clearly very like hitting.
00:02:45
But then when we get.
00:02:47
So when we get some of people who have to drive the people in, then they don't hit because you see that one like tough, our order, like people like Nimmo on my feet to the bottom of our order, like Jimenez, like those people are hitting.
00:03:00
But then when, like Alonso, where Ramos gets up in this people on base, they don't government. And that's no joke.
00:03:07
Yeah, I think that what you're saying is very right.
00:03:10
But I feel like Mets always.
00:03:12
They have a lot of players on their roster that really are.
00:03:17
They have the they're not that fest.
00:03:19
They have a lot of players like Ramos you have.
00:03:23
You know, those people are very easy, double play candidates and they always seem while they they're pretty solid with the bet they always seem to in those situations, managed to do something and then ground into a double play like the Met.
00:03:37
I think I don't know what this step.
00:03:40
The step for this is or if there is even a step for this problem is like, I wonder what the double play rate for the Mets with runners in scoring position? ISS If there's a step for that because it has to be insane, because the amount of times I've seen the Mets have runners in scoring position with one out and then and then and then ground into a double play is just insane.
00:04:04
So I don't know if they have a step for that, although I like that.
00:04:08
Will that sell? Yeah.
00:04:10
Currently, the Mets are on, and Ml became for grounded into double plays per game.
00:04:18
The Mets are 21st and they have 0.
00:04:20
89 per game, and the first team does.
00:04:23
Minnesota.
00:04:24
They got 0.
00:04:26
39 Yes, they met ground into Don't Place a lot more than other teams do.
00:04:32
And, well, yeah, it's, um, it's just they managed to, um, I struggle a lot.
00:04:42
I don't They managed to struggle.
00:04:44
I may have mentioned this in my last Street with the last midst recommended.
00:04:48
It managed to struggle significantly in those high pressure at bets.
00:04:53
They're fine in those on those regular low pressure.
00:04:57
That's no runners in scoring position.
00:04:59
But when it really comes to it and there's a runner on 2nd 2 outs, they really do struggle with runners in scoring position in those high pressure at that.
00:05:10
That's something that's really need to work on.
00:05:12
If they're gonna be successful or maybe put up someone's this, you're because they need to be able to put runs in.
00:05:18
And if you can't hit with runners in scoring position, you're not gonna be able to get those UH two or three runs that you would be getting.
00:05:26
What if you hit relatively well, understand scoring and we've seen the Mets fifth in hits, hits per game.
00:05:34
They do get runners on base.
00:05:36
They have those opportunities.
00:05:38
And as the Stats said, they it leave like around eat runners are on base per game, which is just too much to say the least.
00:05:48
It's just too much for them to be successful offensively.
00:05:52
And the pitching which has used which has been the driving force of this team in the past is just not worth it used to be.
00:06:01
So that's really need to rely on this team to hit with runners in scoring position to be successful with those high pressure at that's for them.
00:06:09
Teoh push forward.
00:06:11
Um, I just really want to talk about the pitching matchup because, yeah, this is the probably that lease.
00:06:19
I think this is not gonna end well for the Mets.
00:06:23
They got Robert Gazelle in pigeon for the start.
00:06:28
And, um, Declan, let's just move over to what do you expect out of this smart? Because, um Gatlinburg Now, I don't know.
00:06:39
The Mets could I don't think this is what they're gonna dio, but it's possible that they could have go Zelman.
00:06:46
Just try going, like, not a full, like, probably like a story.
00:06:49
It would try touching like three innings.
00:06:51
And they could kind of do like a full time nanny.
00:06:53
I don't think they're gonna get there.
00:06:55
I hope they don't cause the Mets swing a bullpen game.
00:07:01
That's just that's just a disaster waiting to happen.
00:07:05
And so I kind of hope they don't do that.
00:07:07
But at the same time, I don't really think that putting the Zelman in that place right now is a great idea because he's coming back from an injury.
00:07:18
He's only Catholic.
00:07:19
One appearance, and I don't think even through like he really didn notice.
00:07:23
Look a fool winning.
00:07:24
And now you're poking him to start.
00:07:27
Well, Deccan, I have something you were trying to put this into nicer terms for everything, just to put this out way out of the way.
00:07:36
Whatever way you look at this, it's not good.
00:07:39
It is not good in any way.
00:07:41
You look at this on your stuff.
00:07:43
Robert Viselman has been struggling recently is coming off an injury.
00:07:47
I don't feel like he can perform at the level to be yet all successful as a starting pitcher, and I just don't feel like he's going to be successful getting thrown into this starting role in any way whatsoever.
00:07:58
So that's that's a warning flag from the start for this game for their pitchy.
00:08:04
But then you look at the fact that their bullpen has struggled with death, and even if they do, like put up there are top players, they won't have them for the next couple of games.
00:08:16
But if you pitched a bullpen game, they won't have enough depth to put their best players forward for the whole game.
00:08:22
And even if they do manage to put like their best bullpen pitchers like, Um group, start luego and Wilson forward, they're not gonna happen for the next game.
00:08:32
And that's a big problem.
00:08:33
So whatever way.
00:08:34
Look at this.
00:08:35
Even if they do become successful with this pope in strategy, which I highly doubt it in every which way, they're not going to be successful with the fact that they're going to have to pitch their next game without those key bullpen players and just is, it's not looking good anyway.
00:08:55
What do I do? You have anything to say about that I bring? It's not looking good in any way.
00:09:01
If Krizelman is going to start cause he's coming off the injury, I don't understand why the Mets he's coming off like to entreat because he was coming off an injury from, like, last season of spring training.
00:09:12
I forget.
00:09:13
But then he got injured and summer camp again, and he hasn't *****es thrown all.
00:09:17
He hasn't slowed a lot of all, and you're gonna make him start when he's been pitching in the bull conflict, the past you, and that just doesn't That's just doesn't make sense.
00:09:25
And I'd like to mention that they had last night.
00:09:29
They had a legal up in the bowl kind, along with ideas.
00:09:32
A coach Diaz in that all last night dinner.
00:09:35
But, uh, giggle is, would be available today.
00:09:39
So I think, personally that I think that it would have been smarter than that stirring Google again.
00:09:46
I mean, I don't like it if it's the new go starts anyway, because he's been dealing was, ah, problem with in his leg for a while.
00:09:54
And I think that's partly why he's been pitching in the bull pen because the Mets don't want overuse and when he just started.
00:10:01
But I still think that it's better if you get, have to go like 34 innings.
00:10:06
I think it is much better than it does.
00:10:08
Ellen is going to go 34 innings because some flu, much federal picture than development.
00:10:15
I mean, he's that terrible.
00:10:16
But you know, in the way that good, something good picture can you get? And I would like to mention we have heard luego saying that he wants to go to the starting world.
00:10:29
So he is audibly announced that he wants to be in that starting role.
00:10:33
What is it? Yes, I know you like, Is it Vince ready for this role? One and two even wants to be in this room.
00:10:40
He's been a bull.
00:10:41
I mean, I don't know why he wouldn't want to be in the starting pitching world.
00:10:45
But, like I don't He's been in the bullpen for the past year.
00:10:48
He is coming off an injury.
00:10:50
I don't see that it's fit for him to go into that, uh, going Teoh.
00:10:56
Just going to be a starting pitcher for the Link.
00:11:00
I feel like I don't I don't feel like this is the right movie.
00:11:04
Any way you look at it, I just don't feel like the Mets.
00:11:07
I would be prepared for the Mets to get completely destroyed.
00:11:11
Okay, I just found something.
00:11:13
So is coming from Anthony ****o on Twitter.
00:11:16
So it's in a press conference against police.
00:11:20
Were hot seat.
00:11:21
He's talking about why glucose remaining in the bullpen, given though he even though he has his desire to store and the Mets need starting cutting costs for missing spot.
00:11:30
Right now, he's, um, basically what it says is that he thinks he is too valuable to the bullpen, and I don't really agree with that because the thing is that we need a starting pitcher weekend.
00:11:46
We could have, like our Bolton's people from our bullpen, it yes or will open is not great and our bullpen would probably to speak.
00:11:54
10.
00:11:55
This is terrible felt ago, but there are people in our bullpen that can catch 12.
00:12:00
Occasional like familiar showed that he can.
00:12:04
It will cave is that he's always gonna fully not d has him.
00:12:08
Pitch will occasionally and we have people like like Drew Smith, Cindy Lou who I think they've been doing.
00:12:14
Okay, so I think that that's not a good good argument for putting you go in keeping new go in the bullpen.
00:12:24
Because most of the time in game you're gonna have you're gonna have your starting pitcher pitched more innings in the bullpen.
00:12:32
Yeah, so I don't really get that explanation from Mo OSS and especially in this scenario where luego wants to start it, pick once the starting pitcher.
00:12:45
And it's just like now, because now that Strolin is often out, I think that he senses this is last year in his deal way.
00:12:54
Don't know if he's coming back next year, and if he isn't, we're gonna need to find awfully a new starting pitcher and move.
00:13:00
Oh, connected Could be often double he started.
00:13:02
He started gains in the text So I really don't understand this move and why he's not starting today.
00:13:10
I don't understand.
00:13:12
Yeah, this is turning kind of bash fest, but we'll continue it with my what I'm going to say.
00:13:19
I do agree with you on every single topic that you put Roma's just I don't know what why he thought this was a good reason to not put luego in the starring role.
00:13:29
He while he is valuable in the bullpen, you still have other pieces that have performed well and can be your leaders.
00:13:38
You still have just seen Wilson, who has who was along with luego, one of the better.
00:13:44
A very solid bullpen piece you have a chance is that we acquired.
00:13:48
You have many bulletin pieces that can still play OK, and we still need that starting role.
00:13:55
And starting off in a game well is almost is as important as finishing it off, because if there is no way you can start off well, how will you finish it off? Well, because if you're down like five, nothing like the Mets work like your offense is struggling, which it has been and like, What are you gonna like? Locked down with the use of the bullpen if you're losing battery before the bullpen even gets up.
00:14:21
So I I think the starting pitching is more focused and is more importance for the midst than having a good bullpen piece.
00:14:31
So, like, I think they should just try out luego rather than putting Zelman on the spot over.
00:14:36
I feel like he's not ready to do this, and I just feel like it's not even close to the right move, and I I feel like it's just kind of Sean.
00:14:47
The much troubles this year.
00:14:49
I just don't feel like it's been full of having putting players in the positions where they have congee able to succeed and thrive like we've seen it.
00:15:01
And I think we're gonna see this.
00:15:03
See it a lot today with Rome, in my opinion, not putting Viselman in the position for him to be successful.
00:15:12
A Xabi ballplayer.
00:15:16
Um, I just I don't want obviously talking about this for a while, but one more thing I just wanted to say I'm I'm pretty sure, um, last night, unless it I don't think so.
00:15:27
If I'm if I remember correctly, I don't believe the Mets pitching let up on hit from the Nationalists passed to the fifth minute last game.
00:15:36
And that's with probably, I think, what the excuse for Cell 16 That's one end from Porcello.
00:15:42
I think, like Hugo's went to winnings and then, um, de aspects so our bullpen can be good and they showed it can be good.
00:15:52
So I don't understand the call myself by.
00:15:57
We throw us here, but we know control.
00:16:02
What the Mets dio unfortunately, I mean, it's just been I feel like it's just kind of been full of bumps in the road with.
00:16:10
I just don't feel like the way the Mets have been manages here has been exceptional by any means.
00:16:17
But, um, I don't feel like this is gonna work.
00:16:20
I feel like we bashed Viselman enough for this stream.
00:16:25
But, um, let's continue it on with the Mets lineup.
00:16:28
So, yea, are the reading off Brandon Nimmo, then batting second? Davis? Yeah, there's no notable this difference.
00:16:40
I use that management.
00:16:42
I there is not.
00:16:44
There's no difference.
00:16:45
No, uh, you have Nimmo leading off.
00:16:50
You have Davis batting second.
00:16:51
McNeil third Conforto for Alonso has been demoted to fifth because he's been struggling.
00:16:58
Six A.
00:16:59
Dominic Smith is batting sixth, Jimenez is batting seventh, Ramos batting eight and your May.
00:17:05
The adding ninth.
00:17:07
Your mons in lineup, which is not getting into all.
00:17:09
And he actually is Twitter.
00:17:11
Like Twitter thinking for the Mets lineup.
00:17:14
He's like the picture for Don't expect much offense from your meds at this game, but what do you think? What are your thoughts on the Mets lineups for today? Yeah, I think this lineup is pretty solid.
00:17:31
I think that I like.
00:17:33
I think I like the demotion of Alonso because he that he can take it, take up the next Greece locked forever or four spot if he's gonna continue struggling like he is.
00:17:43
So I think five is a good place for him right now.
00:17:46
I think that I like Davis hitting highlight again because he's been he's been.
00:17:52
I think he's been like our most consisted like runners in scoring position, header and considering the best liable.
00:18:00
Pretty sad.
00:18:01
But Davis visited hitter, so I will.
00:18:03
I like him hitting second up there and there's nothing much else about this line of that I dislike.
00:18:10
I think I actually I think I would rather have D or may like Converse.
00:18:16
Well, I would rather have you or may starting the Dozer just because gilded defense is a lot better.
00:18:23
And I think the combination of him at second and amenities at short stock I think that's a really good combination.
00:18:29
As we saw last night, they they turned two double plays off trade Turner.
00:18:34
So that just shows how good they are at moving the bull fast like that.
00:18:40
So I think I personally would rather have your might start.
00:18:43
I'm not saying his offense is gonna be exceptional.
00:18:45
Just cause last night he hit CLECs.
00:18:48
He's like two hits and sacks.
00:18:50
Lie doesn't mean he's gonna do it again, but I think that I would rather have you when I started.
00:18:55
I think him hitting 90 is a good spot for it.
00:18:58
Yeah, yeah, because the Mets, you know Gourmet is not going to produce much offense.
00:19:04
It's a rare occasion when he does which, but I don't think he's going to continuously produced much offense.
00:19:11
Hasn't been doing very solid s Oh, I do like him banning seven.
00:19:18
I think he will if he continues the way, has been I think you'll slowly rise up.
00:19:23
I like Ramos.
00:19:24
Batting aid us.
00:19:26
I might change around some things with the tough.
00:19:31
It's like part of the lineup.
00:19:32
I do like Brandon Nimmo batting first, like Davis betting second.
00:19:37
No, I actually might change this room.
00:19:39
I moved Davis back to fourth, and then McNeil and Conforto upward because I feel like Conforto has been very good with the bat.
00:19:50
I feel like he's been doing great, and I feel like David's has it also been putting up some nice power, but I feel like the trend the nowadays is kind of put your power hitter batting third, get him in the first inning, and I feel like Alonso has been kind of struggling, so him at fifth works.
00:20:07
So for me, I would just move Davis back to fourth and move Jeff McNeil, the second, uh in the lineup and Conforto to for.
00:20:16
But that's all I have to.
00:20:18
I have to say about the Mets. Lie up.
00:20:21
I do think that you're right about the girl, my starting over Dozer.
00:20:25
I do believe that is the right move because the Defense Room you're me is just better, and it's just over It is a, um it is more of an impact because the Mets aren't really good defensive team, uh, considering the other pieces and outfield and everything, but yeah, I do agree with you on that.
00:20:47
Why do you think that's about my Davis change backer? I mean, I don't I don't have a tomb fungus problems, both that.
00:20:56
That's not what I'm gonna do.
00:20:58
I don't think.
00:20:59
But I think that that's a perfectly fun change, because I think data issue, I think at this point, you just anywhere in, like, Tooth and four.
00:21:07
I think that's what the find spot.
00:21:08
Remember, Lee? Because he's been one of the only consistent headers as a as a current times.
00:21:15
So I think what I would do is I don't have many changes either.
00:21:19
I think I would keep him out leading off.
00:21:22
I think I would Yeah, I think you know what? Um yeah.
00:21:28
So I feel like yeah, which I want to do what you did, actually, So I think I'm gonna I'm gonna move up with me on conforto, and I'm gonna put Davis fourth because my feeling Conforto, they're like getting Confortola up in the first inning after That's important.
00:21:42
And I think that that means that if one of them gets on base, that Davis is up, and I think that's good.
00:21:48
So I think that I'm gonna I'm gonna Davis fourth, keep Alonso fist.
00:21:53
You need to be there.
00:21:55
Um, from there, I don't think I'm gonna change anything.
00:22:00
I'm I'm kind of tempted to put amenaza both smith just cause I like a man has a lot as a player, and he's been good the bat, but I'm gonna keep going, Keep Smith ahead of him just because just to keep that gap between Smiths and ah, of almost of winding up a play.
00:22:16
Yeah, Yeah, I think that's the right move.
00:22:20
And, um, gonna move over to the national starting lineup that I hope is going to have a bad offensive day today.
00:22:28
Hopefully, they don't dio, but starting leading off your obviously tree Turner Bank Second, He's Adam Eaton.
00:22:39
Castro's batting 3rd 1 Soto's been forth.
00:22:43
How Kendrick is.
00:22:45
Kendrick is batting fifth.
00:22:47
Cabrera is banning six.
00:22:49
Eric Themes is batting seventh.
00:22:51
Suzuki is betting a and robust is batting ninth and Anibal Sanchez is batting is starting, not the starting pitcher does.
00:23:01
Not that you trolls everything, but what do you think about the Nationals lineup? And how do you think there score? Infamous.
00:23:11
You know much.
00:23:12
I gotta send it.
00:23:13
C.
00:23:14
I believe it is the exact same lineup they had yesterday.
00:23:17
And so I think that, Yeah, I think they're lined up, but I think it's pretty solid.
00:23:24
I agree.
00:23:25
I hope yesterday wasn't wasn't they didn't have a lot of offense, either.
00:23:28
It's just the Mets at less.
00:23:30
So I think that hopefully that will happen again.
00:23:34
But hopefully the Mets are actually or runs.
00:23:38
So I think that the only thing I would have toe mention is that and the picture of Sanchez, he's open.
00:23:45
Chu is a 74 year and he is a 78 for you. All right.
00:23:50
So I mean, obviously, I think both pictures have only gotten two or three starts so far this year.
00:23:55
But I mean, you can hope that he doesn't do well.
00:24:01
I mean again, I mean, while in most answer is yes, he has struggled in the start.
00:24:07
I still don't have hope.
00:24:10
I will be pleasantly surprised.
00:24:13
I will be completely pleasantly surprised if guys.
00:24:16
Almond does well today.
00:24:17
I will be completely surprised, but it will be.
00:24:20
I would be pleasantly surprised if Zalman does better than and while Sanchez and does OK today.
00:24:27
But I do think this will be more of an offensive game.
00:24:30
Sanchez has struggled this year.
00:24:31
Krizelman isn't in my opinion, the right move and is just probably not going to be doing well this game.
00:24:40
So I'm not looking at this and saying that this is going to be a good oh, defensive battles.
00:24:47
So I think it's just gonna be on offensive battle.
00:24:50
We've seen the inconsistencies with the Mets offense, so, uh, it's going to be a little bit.
00:24:57
I think it's gonna be tight.
00:24:58
Offensive battle.
00:24:59
It might be a little bit more similar to the National, sadly, because the Mets inconsistent offense and then they're just that bullpen and everything.
00:25:09
But what do you think? I'm not like? What do you think the game is gonna end up like? I think I agree.
00:25:15
I think it's going to be I want to say it's gonna be an offensive battle, cause I'm pretty sure the Nationals are gonna hit well against gay Zelman and then I don't I don't think the Mets.
00:25:25
I don't think the Mets are going to pitch of that far, so I'm kind of happy with that.
00:25:31
But if they do, then I think I think the Nationals could probably easily tackle off ones against Godzilla.
00:25:37
Nothing is a bad picture to see essence started and like over a year, almost two years or something.
00:25:42
So I think that it's gonna be I think it might be an offensive day for the Nationals, and hopefully it will be an offensive day for the Mets and, well, but you can't say that at all because they're the Mets 2020 months and they don't like to four months.
00:25:59
For some reason, they like to get 10th and they never looks for once.
00:26:02
So I mean, being a Mets fan, you always have to be prepared for them to do something to ruin their season, and they'll give you sometimes false hope like in the 2015 season.
00:26:16
But in the end, there are ultimately the Mets and we've seen that this year and we have seen that in past years.
00:26:24
We've seen that with the suspect is injury with the bull the wild boar accident.
00:26:30
It's just the Mets have their limits, so nothing you can say about that.
00:26:36
But that's just aren't I don't I feel like in an offensive battle that inconsistencies.
00:26:43
The Mets offense.
00:26:45
I would fever nationals a little bit, but I'm hoping they could get up some runs.
00:26:51
We've seen them put up some race runs, but, um, I feel like this is gonna be definitely more of an offensive battle, but, um, we're going to go on.
00:27:02
Continuation of Peter Lanza struggles Part two.
00:27:05
What do you think Peter Alonso has been doing that has made him suck compared to last year? Just to put it bluntly, you're that's perfectly elastic.
00:27:16
All they He sucks.
00:27:18
He sucks right now.
00:27:19
So currently along, though, has ah, 1 97 batting average.
00:27:24
He has seven or be eyes.
00:27:25
He's only have three extra base.
00:27:28
It's this year, 56 at bats, which leads the entire mess teen, and he is 24 strikeouts, which also needs the team.
00:27:37
So that means that over 1/3 of the time he is striking out is that that's which is this just can't happen for someone like Pete Alonso.
00:27:49
We Mets depend on toe knock in runs, and so he has just been absolutely, terribly inconsistent some some days.
00:28:00
He he's some days you can see that he's holding off Christians.
00:28:04
He walks something.
00:28:05
He walked one or two times, sometimes in a game and you sometimes life.
00:28:10
He's to swing away at everything, and it's he just hasn't been consistent at all.
00:28:16
And so he has to cast it.
00:28:18
Just hope I want him, like, obviously not swing at bad pitches and chase everything in a Holien.
00:28:25
But I think that Alonso he needs to get his swim because currently his switch, his swing has to be in a position.
00:28:35
Where is he has a head on this one.
00:28:37
I don't know if he got rid of it and he still felt line or if he still has it.
00:28:40
I have a Martian close enough recently, but I think that Alonzo, he just needs to figure it out. Rules.
00:28:48
The Mets just have to start put in lower Lowell over, and sure enough, he might just might have might just not be able to start it because we have another first base that Smith can play for space.
00:28:59
He's only not neither of them are great in the field, really.
00:29:02
But this one play first base and we can make someone else th and along go out an off day yesterday and he could sit and he got.
00:29:13
So I think that he's got to figure it out.
00:29:16
Or else this mess team is gonna struggle to hit and run because they heavily depend on him that on that and they heavily dependent on him last year.
00:29:24
So that's Pope.
00:29:26
It's a few of part of the base, more than the seven months going above this is and consistency.
00:29:31
Yeah, I think to go along that you've been butterly.
00:29:35
You have been really pushing forward that stack trying to get that out there.
00:29:40
But, um, he has been straightening him.
00:29:43
He's been swinging at bad pitches in counts where he has the upper hand, and he's just been he's been very much so struggling.
00:29:54
I don't know if its been this prior season the previous season that here getting into his head like him, trying to, like, have to perform at such a level Teoh complete with that last season.
00:30:07
But I mean, I don't know what it is with him, I e.
00:30:11
Feel like, Yes, he developed a bad habit in the hitch from the off season, but he's just been he's been very.
00:30:18
He's been struggling a lot recently, and I just feel like he needs to figure himself out or we will see him in the shorter season.
00:30:27
Sadly, maybe probably end up on the bench a couple of games, maybe, like get benched.
00:30:33
I don't know.
00:30:34
I feel like that's a little bit of extreme.
00:30:36
But he and if he continues to play this way, we might see him get suffer Dominic Smith or other guys and we might see him start last.
00:30:48
We might see him not start almost every game and take, maybe get benched a couple times, but like he needs to figure this out Now he's such he's such a driving point from its offense, and he's kind of if when he's doing good, it just feels very, very like good for the Mets and everyone.
00:31:11
I feel like the Mets really take off that and do very well.
00:31:15
Like just as a team like um, he and home run I feel against the Marlins.
00:31:21
I believe and was I feel like that was the game.
00:31:23
Yeah, that was the game.
00:31:24
They put up eight runs, so I feel like when he's doing well, the offense is doing very well.
00:31:29
So I feel like Alonso us to produce more.
00:31:32
For the Mets to be successful, or I feel like he's gonna end up on the bench.
00:31:38
That's just one other thing I just want to say about Alonso.
00:31:44
Sitting is the two home runs he hates.
00:31:46
You get one against Boston, hit one over, get one over the Green Monster, and then he at one on and Citi Field, obviously against the Marlins.
00:31:55
Both of them were like lying were life Ah, 100 plus violent.
00:32:01
Our line drives that barely went over well, so that's the type of hitter that Alonso is.
00:32:08
He's a line drive hitter who happens to them extremely hard, which is why he had so many home runs.
00:32:14
And I think that might be It might be kind of what you said about him trying to hit home runs because he's like, worried about since he wants to perform.
00:32:23
This is well, you did last year.
00:32:25
I think that he might be trying to swing for the fences and that make me why he's got that hit because he trying to take more of an uppercut, swings that way.
00:32:33
He gets the ball higher, and that doesn't work with a long focus.
00:32:37
*** is not the hitter he is, so I think that he needs toe.
00:32:42
He needs the stood.
00:32:44
Maybe even, like take a few days off.
00:32:46
Maybe I think it might just need toe, take a few days off and, like, just work on his hitting workers fundamentals.
00:32:54
This make sure he's keeping his head on the ball when he swinging that way, he makes contact.
00:32:59
Is he's given striking out.
00:33:00
So watching, he says, not making good contact, we don't So that's my take on Alonso.
00:33:08
Yeah, Um, yeah, I feel like he's just been he's been struck, going.
00:33:14
He's been struggling, consists the lately and I do.
00:33:19
I feel like it is it's got into aside and he I feel like that.
00:33:23
Maybe him taking some days off is actually might be better for him to kind of calm down and re figure himself out and maybe work on swing mechanics and just figure him so, uh, get ready for the rest of the season, which isn't that long.
00:33:39
I feel like he has to produce and more of a short period of time, and he really wants to produce that the same level he was at last year.
00:33:49
And to do that he's gone away from what made him so successful last year, and as a result, that's affected him.
00:33:57
And that's and we've seen what the effects of that has been in his swing and in his stats and as our end on just what he's produced list this year.
00:34:09
Computer last year is is not is not what we are, not what I feel like he can do as a player, all right? Yeah.
00:34:24
So do you have anything to add on it? Or I don't renting about Alonso.
00:34:33
So you gonna do you have anything more to add to the Mets, Rance, or doing a rep? Oh, I think the only other thing I possibly want to emphasize is, um, when I talked about that, um, Twitter thing about that when we go hosted the press Common saying how like Seth luego is, he needs to stay in the bullpen, causes the stability and, like everyone's like like hissy every one of the comments that is yelling about one of the common system.
00:35:03
And he is right, like the Mets start like this.
00:35:06
He was like, Yeah, that's on stability that will And I'm not gonna is completely argued yet because obviously, their bullpen is no.
00:35:14
Nowhere in your, but you have good pictures.
00:35:19
We have someone like Jared huge, who's done really well so far, and he's just been pitching really well.
00:35:26
And I think that way.
00:35:29
Have Diaz who I mean.
00:35:31
He has been struggling as much as last year so far, at least, and obviously he's extremely inconsistent.
00:35:36
But when he's when he's good, he is good and he gets lots of strikeouts.
00:35:41
And so if he saw when he was playing for the Mariners.
00:35:44
But I think that I'm biggest fair to say the Metsbullpen like is terrible.
00:35:50
It sucks.
00:35:51
Obviously, it's not good because it's not consistent.
00:35:54
But I think that it's kind of it's kind of just a bad judgment just to say that the Mets bullpen is that because sometimes it's good, obviously not all the time.
00:36:05
But I think that if the if the Mets bullpen pitchers can figure out how justice, start pitching a bit more consistently, then I think that your bullpen just could could be really soul it and that could second, that could have sold.
00:36:19
Like a lot of problems we had last year last year remain problems. Their bullpen.
00:36:23
So the squad and so have mentioned that one thing, cause I think people are people full.
00:36:30
Hated the bullpen, I think, deservedly, because as a best friend, I couldn't agree what our bullpen blows because it happens too often.
00:36:37
I was having too often last year, but I think that sometimes not enough credit is given to Arbil country because you have good pictures.
00:36:45
Yeah, I do agree with you on all the those comments I think we've I think we might have ranted on that earlier a little bit, but you did go a little bit more in depth on me thing.
00:36:58
But, um, I do agree with you.
00:37:00
Let's have a lot of issues.
00:37:02
I think we've covered most of them.
00:37:05
But, um, I hope that the game was better than what we forecasted here, huh? So without that, do you have any more comments? Because before we end this stream, I do not Okay, so with that we end Mets range Pregame episode one.
00:37:28
Tune in for Episode two of Metreon Creaking if they suck.
00:37:31
If they don't, it will be.
00:37:33
Mets are great.
00:37:34
Yea, really mean that's pregame, but I'm gonna It could be listed in this pre game because you got you got to go on and then you got to see if it's a random, but without that, without further who Let's end this dream.
00:37:50
So thanks for coming on, Uh, and we will.

just go. 321 instant.
00:00:02
Oh, it was a record. I don't know.
00:00:05
I was one of the shorter ones.
00:00:07
I've seen him, but, um, I think live.
00:00:12
And we have Let's just wait a little bit.
00:00:15
I am phone.
00:00:16
I don't even care what I know it.
00:00:20
Phone time.
00:00:24
Seed. Quickly.
00:00:27
They set up.
00:00:32
I put the units on the jet, but, um, Donna started off with.
00:00:39
Well, mess are losing.
00:00:41
What? They're just ministers.
00:00:44
Okay, let's go.
00:00:47
So first off, we're going to begin with the Mets offense.
00:00:51
The Mets offense has been special, To say the least.
00:00:56
We've seen bits of Gregor's.
00:00:58
We have seen bits of I don't know what, but we've seen bits of just completely.
00:01:04
I can't hit the ball.
00:01:05
I'm just gonna swing and not do anything with it.
00:01:08
We have seen bits of getting runners on base and just not caring and flopping.
00:01:14
It's just been bad.
00:01:15
We have seen many inconsistencies with this Nets offense.
00:01:19
What do you think the Mets offense has been doing lately That has made them struggle offensively? And what do you think they need to do to overcome this? So the problem with the best offense is that they're getting their racking up lots of hits and getting lots of people on base.
00:01:39
But they're not fighting people in.
00:01:41
It'll like adults.
00:01:43
So I did some research, and currently the Mets are 25th in them.
00:01:50
Will be in months, scored her game, an average one scored for games.
00:01:53
So that's 3.
00:01:54
94 their last in runners left on base, bringing that's 8.
00:01:58
2 e two leaving E eight and 1/4 of people on base every single game without scoring.
00:02:05
And what's the What's the best team? Know what other teams around it? But the Mets? Um, I don't have high both about them or that it's low, but it's all I think.
00:02:17
It's like just like the teams that are struck, Yeah, revealing, considering that that's our last.
00:02:22
That's considering their offense that they have.
00:02:25
They should not be last.
00:02:26
They should definitely not be lost.
00:02:28
It should be higher.
00:02:29
They should be above average.
00:02:31
So, and the thing is there also there.
00:02:34
Ethan walks for game, their fifth in hits per game, and they're six and batting average.
00:02:42
So clip so clearly very like hitting.
00:02:45
But then when we get.
00:02:47
So when we get some of people who have to drive the people in, then they don't hit because you see that one like tough, our order, like people like Nimmo on my feet to the bottom of our order, like Jimenez, like those people are hitting.
00:03:00
But then when, like Alonso, where Ramos gets up in this people on base, they don't government. And that's no joke.
00:03:07
Yeah, I think that what you're saying is very right.
00:03:10
But I feel like Mets always.
00:03:12
They have a lot of players on their roster that really are.
00:03:17
They have the they're not that fest.
00:03:19
They have a lot of players like Ramos you have.
00:03:23
You know, those people are very easy, double play candidates and they always seem while they they're pretty solid with the bet they always seem to in those situations, managed to do something and then ground into a double play like the Met.
00:03:37
I think I don't know what this step.
00:03:40
The step for this is or if there is even a step for this problem is like, I wonder what the double play rate for the Mets with runners in scoring position? ISS If there's a step for that because it has to be insane, because the amount of times I've seen the Mets have runners in scoring position with one out and then and then and then ground into a double play is just insane.
00:04:04
So I don't know if they have a step for that, although I like that.
00:04:08
Will that sell? Yeah.
00:04:10
Currently, the Mets are on, and Ml became for grounded into double plays per game.
00:04:18
The Mets are 21st and they have 0.
00:04:20
89 per game, and the first team does.
00:04:23
Minnesota.
00:04:24
They got 0.
00:04:26
39 Yes, they met ground into Don't Place a lot more than other teams do.
00:04:32
And, well, yeah, it's, um, it's just they managed to, um, I struggle a lot.
00:04:42
I don't They managed to struggle.
00:04:44
I may have mentioned this in my last Street with the last midst recommended.
00:04:48
It managed to struggle significantly in those high pressure at bets.
00:04:53
They're fine in those on those regular low pressure.
00:04:57
That's no runners in scoring position.
00:04:59
But when it really comes to it and there's a runner on 2nd 2 outs, they really do struggle with runners in scoring position in those high pressure at that.
00:05:10
That's something that's really need to work on.
00:05:12
If they're gonna be successful or maybe put up someone's this, you're because they need to be able to put runs in.
00:05:18
And if you can't hit with runners in scoring position, you're not gonna be able to get those UH two or three runs that you would be getting.
00:05:26
What if you hit relatively well, understand scoring and we've seen the Mets fifth in hits, hits per game.
00:05:34
They do get runners on base.
00:05:36
They have those opportunities.
00:05:38
And as the Stats said, they it leave like around eat runners are on base per game, which is just too much to say the least.
00:05:48
It's just too much for them to be successful offensively.
00:05:52
And the pitching which has used which has been the driving force of this team in the past is just not worth it used to be.
00:06:01
So that's really need to rely on this team to hit with runners in scoring position to be successful with those high pressure at that's for them.
00:06:09
Teoh push forward.
00:06:11
Um, I just really want to talk about the pitching matchup because, yeah, this is the probably that lease.
00:06:19
I think this is not gonna end well for the Mets.
00:06:23
They got Robert Gazelle in pigeon for the start.
00:06:28
And, um, Declan, let's just move over to what do you expect out of this smart? Because, um Gatlinburg Now, I don't know.
00:06:39
The Mets could I don't think this is what they're gonna dio, but it's possible that they could have go Zelman.
00:06:46
Just try going, like, not a full, like, probably like a story.
00:06:49
It would try touching like three innings.
00:06:51
And they could kind of do like a full time nanny.
00:06:53
I don't think they're gonna get there.
00:06:55
I hope they don't cause the Mets swing a bullpen game.
00:07:01
That's just that's just a disaster waiting to happen.
00:07:05
And so I kind of hope they don't do that.
00:07:07
But at the same time, I don't really think that putting the Zelman in that place right now is a great idea because he's coming back from an injury.
00:07:18
He's only Catholic.
00:07:19
One appearance, and I don't think even through like he really didn notice.
00:07:23
Look a fool winning.
00:07:24
And now you're poking him to start.
00:07:27
Well, Deccan, I have something you were trying to put this into nicer terms for everything, just to put this out way out of the way.
00:07:36
Whatever way you look at this, it's not good.
00:07:39
It is not good in any way.
00:07:41
You look at this on your stuff.
00:07:43
Robert Viselman has been struggling recently is coming off an injury.
00:07:47
I don't feel like he can perform at the level to be yet all successful as a starting pitcher, and I just don't feel like he's going to be successful getting thrown into this starting role in any way whatsoever.
00:07:58
So that's that's a warning flag from the start for this game for their pitchy.
00:08:04
But then you look at the fact that their bullpen has struggled with death, and even if they do, like put up there are top players, they won't have them for the next couple of games.
00:08:16
But if you pitched a bullpen game, they won't have enough depth to put their best players forward for the whole game.
00:08:22
And even if they do manage to put like their best bullpen pitchers like, Um group, start luego and Wilson forward, they're not gonna happen for the next game.
00:08:32
And that's a big problem.
00:08:33
So whatever way.
00:08:34
Look at this.
00:08:35
Even if they do become successful with this pope in strategy, which I highly doubt it in every which way, they're not going to be successful with the fact that they're going to have to pitch their next game without those key bullpen players and just is, it's not looking good anyway.
00:08:55
What do I do? You have anything to say about that I bring? It's not looking good in any way.
00:09:01
If Krizelman is going to start cause he's coming off the injury, I don't understand why the Mets he's coming off like to entreat because he was coming off an injury from, like, last season of spring training.
00:09:12
I forget.
00:09:13
But then he got injured and summer camp again, and he hasn't *****es thrown all.
00:09:17
He hasn't slowed a lot of all, and you're gonna make him start when he's been pitching in the bull conflict, the past you, and that just doesn't That's just doesn't make sense.
00:09:25
And I'd like to mention that they had last night.
00:09:29
They had a legal up in the bowl kind, along with ideas.
00:09:32
A coach Diaz in that all last night dinner.
00:09:35
But, uh, giggle is, would be available today.
00:09:39
So I think, personally that I think that it would have been smarter than that stirring Google again.
00:09:46
I mean, I don't like it if it's the new go starts anyway, because he's been dealing was, ah, problem with in his leg for a while.
00:09:54
And I think that's partly why he's been pitching in the bull pen because the Mets don't want overuse and when he just started.
00:10:01
But I still think that it's better if you get, have to go like 34 innings.
00:10:06
I think it is much better than it does.
00:10:08
Ellen is going to go 34 innings because some flu, much federal picture than development.
00:10:15
I mean, he's that terrible.
00:10:16
But you know, in the way that good, something good picture can you get? And I would like to mention we have heard luego saying that he wants to go to the starting world.
00:10:29
So he is audibly announced that he wants to be in that starting role.
00:10:33
What is it? Yes, I know you like, Is it Vince ready for this role? One and two even wants to be in this room.
00:10:40
He's been a bull.
00:10:41
I mean, I don't know why he wouldn't want to be in the starting pitching world.
00:10:45
But, like I don't He's been in the bullpen for the past year.
00:10:48
He is coming off an injury.
00:10:50
I don't see that it's fit for him to go into that, uh, going Teoh.
00:10:56
Just going to be a starting pitcher for the Link.
00:11:00
I feel like I don't I don't feel like this is the right movie.
00:11:04
Any way you look at it, I just don't feel like the Mets.
00:11:07
I would be prepared for the Mets to get completely destroyed.
00:11:11
Okay, I just found something.
00:11:13
So is coming from Anthony ****o on Twitter.
00:11:16
So it's in a press conference against police.
00:11:20
Were hot seat.
00:11:21
He's talking about why glucose remaining in the bullpen, given though he even though he has his desire to store and the Mets need starting cutting costs for missing spot.
00:11:30
Right now, he's, um, basically what it says is that he thinks he is too valuable to the bullpen, and I don't really agree with that because the thing is that we need a starting pitcher weekend.
00:11:46
We could have, like our Bolton's people from our bullpen, it yes or will open is not great and our bullpen would probably to speak.
00:11:54
10.
00:11:55
This is terrible felt ago, but there are people in our bullpen that can catch 12.
00:12:00
Occasional like familiar showed that he can.
00:12:04
It will cave is that he's always gonna fully not d has him.
00:12:08
Pitch will occasionally and we have people like like Drew Smith, Cindy Lou who I think they've been doing.
00:12:14
Okay, so I think that that's not a good good argument for putting you go in keeping new go in the bullpen.
00:12:24
Because most of the time in game you're gonna have you're gonna have your starting pitcher pitched more innings in the bullpen.
00:12:32
Yeah, so I don't really get that explanation from Mo OSS and especially in this scenario where luego wants to start it, pick once the starting pitcher.
00:12:45
And it's just like now, because now that Strolin is often out, I think that he senses this is last year in his deal way.
00:12:54
Don't know if he's coming back next year, and if he isn't, we're gonna need to find awfully a new starting pitcher and move.
00:13:00
Oh, connected Could be often double he started.
00:13:02
He started gains in the text So I really don't understand this move and why he's not starting today.
00:13:10
I don't understand.
00:13:12
Yeah, this is turning kind of bash fest, but we'll continue it with my what I'm going to say.
00:13:19
I do agree with you on every single topic that you put Roma's just I don't know what why he thought this was a good reason to not put luego in the starring role.
00:13:29
He while he is valuable in the bullpen, you still have other pieces that have performed well and can be your leaders.
00:13:38
You still have just seen Wilson, who has who was along with luego, one of the better.
00:13:44
A very solid bullpen piece you have a chance is that we acquired.
00:13:48
You have many bulletin pieces that can still play OK, and we still need that starting role.
00:13:55
And starting off in a game well is almost is as important as finishing it off, because if there is no way you can start off well, how will you finish it off? Well, because if you're down like five, nothing like the Mets work like your offense is struggling, which it has been and like, What are you gonna like? Locked down with the use of the bullpen if you're losing battery before the bullpen even gets up.
00:14:21
So I I think the starting pitching is more focused and is more importance for the midst than having a good bullpen piece.
00:14:31
So, like, I think they should just try out luego rather than putting Zelman on the spot over.
00:14:36
I feel like he's not ready to do this, and I just feel like it's not even close to the right move, and I I feel like it's just kind of Sean.
00:14:47
The much troubles this year.
00:14:49
I just don't feel like it's been full of having putting players in the positions where they have congee able to succeed and thrive like we've seen it.
00:15:01
And I think we're gonna see this.
00:15:03
See it a lot today with Rome, in my opinion, not putting Viselman in the position for him to be successful.
00:15:12
A Xabi ballplayer.
00:15:16
Um, I just I don't want obviously talking about this for a while, but one more thing I just wanted to say I'm I'm pretty sure, um, last night, unless it I don't think so.
00:15:27
If I'm if I remember correctly, I don't believe the Mets pitching let up on hit from the Nationalists passed to the fifth minute last game.
00:15:36
And that's with probably, I think, what the excuse for Cell 16 That's one end from Porcello.
00:15:42
I think, like Hugo's went to winnings and then, um, de aspects so our bullpen can be good and they showed it can be good.
00:15:52
So I don't understand the call myself by.
00:15:57
We throw us here, but we know control.
00:16:02
What the Mets dio unfortunately, I mean, it's just been I feel like it's just kind of been full of bumps in the road with.
00:16:10
I just don't feel like the way the Mets have been manages here has been exceptional by any means.
00:16:17
But, um, I don't feel like this is gonna work.
00:16:20
I feel like we bashed Viselman enough for this stream.
00:16:25
But, um, let's continue it on with the Mets lineup.
00:16:28
So, yea, are the reading off Brandon Nimmo, then batting second? Davis? Yeah, there's no notable this difference.
00:16:40
I use that management.
00:16:42
I there is not.
00:16:44
There's no difference.
00:16:45
No, uh, you have Nimmo leading off.
00:16:50
You have Davis batting second.
00:16:51
McNeil third Conforto for Alonso has been demoted to fifth because he's been struggling.
00:16:58
Six A.
00:16:59
Dominic Smith is batting sixth, Jimenez is batting seventh, Ramos batting eight and your May.
00:17:05
The adding ninth.
00:17:07
Your mons in lineup, which is not getting into all.
00:17:09
And he actually is Twitter.
00:17:11
Like Twitter thinking for the Mets lineup.
00:17:14
He's like the picture for Don't expect much offense from your meds at this game, but what do you think? What are your thoughts on the Mets lineups for today? Yeah, I think this lineup is pretty solid.
00:17:31
I think that I like.
00:17:33
I think I like the demotion of Alonso because he that he can take it, take up the next Greece locked forever or four spot if he's gonna continue struggling like he is.
00:17:43
So I think five is a good place for him right now.
00:17:46
I think that I like Davis hitting highlight again because he's been he's been.
00:17:52
I think he's been like our most consisted like runners in scoring position, header and considering the best liable.
00:18:00
Pretty sad.
00:18:01
But Davis visited hitter, so I will.
00:18:03
I like him hitting second up there and there's nothing much else about this line of that I dislike.
00:18:10
I think I actually I think I would rather have D or may like Converse.
00:18:16
Well, I would rather have you or may starting the Dozer just because gilded defense is a lot better.
00:18:23
And I think the combination of him at second and amenities at short stock I think that's a really good combination.
00:18:29
As we saw last night, they they turned two double plays off trade Turner.
00:18:34
So that just shows how good they are at moving the bull fast like that.
00:18:40
So I think I personally would rather have your might start.
00:18:43
I'm not saying his offense is gonna be exceptional.
00:18:45
Just cause last night he hit CLECs.
00:18:48
He's like two hits and sacks.
00:18:50
Lie doesn't mean he's gonna do it again, but I think that I would rather have you when I started.
00:18:55
I think him hitting 90 is a good spot for it.
00:18:58
Yeah, yeah, because the Mets, you know Gourmet is not going to produce much offense.
00:19:04
It's a rare occasion when he does which, but I don't think he's going to continuously produced much offense.
00:19:11
Hasn't been doing very solid s Oh, I do like him banning seven.
00:19:18
I think he will if he continues the way, has been I think you'll slowly rise up.
00:19:23
I like Ramos.
00:19:24
Batting aid us.
00:19:26
I might change around some things with the tough.
00:19:31
It's like part of the lineup.
00:19:32
I do like Brandon Nimmo batting first, like Davis betting second.
00:19:37
No, I actually might change this room.
00:19:39
I moved Davis back to fourth, and then McNeil and Conforto upward because I feel like Conforto has been very good with the bat.
00:19:50
I feel like he's been doing great, and I feel like David's has it also been putting up some nice power, but I feel like the trend the nowadays is kind of put your power hitter batting third, get him in the first inning, and I feel like Alonso has been kind of struggling, so him at fifth works.
00:20:07
So for me, I would just move Davis back to fourth and move Jeff McNeil, the second, uh in the lineup and Conforto to for.
00:20:16
But that's all I have to.
00:20:18
I have to say about the Mets. Lie up.
00:20:21
I do think that you're right about the girl, my starting over Dozer.
00:20:25
I do believe that is the right move because the Defense Room you're me is just better, and it's just over It is a, um it is more of an impact because the Mets aren't really good defensive team, uh, considering the other pieces and outfield and everything, but yeah, I do agree with you on that.
00:20:47
Why do you think that's about my Davis change backer? I mean, I don't I don't have a tomb fungus problems, both that.
00:20:56
That's not what I'm gonna do.
00:20:58
I don't think.
00:20:59
But I think that that's a perfectly fun change, because I think data issue, I think at this point, you just anywhere in, like, Tooth and four.
00:21:07
I think that's what the find spot.
00:21:08
Remember, Lee? Because he's been one of the only consistent headers as a as a current times.
00:21:15
So I think what I would do is I don't have many changes either.
00:21:19
I think I would keep him out leading off.
00:21:22
I think I would Yeah, I think you know what? Um yeah.
00:21:28
So I feel like yeah, which I want to do what you did, actually, So I think I'm gonna I'm gonna move up with me on conforto, and I'm gonna put Davis fourth because my feeling Conforto, they're like getting Confortola up in the first inning after That's important.
00:21:42
And I think that that means that if one of them gets on base, that Davis is up, and I think that's good.
00:21:48
So I think that I'm gonna I'm gonna Davis fourth, keep Alonso fist.
00:21:53
You need to be there.
00:21:55
Um, from there, I don't think I'm gonna change anything.
00:22:00
I'm I'm kind of tempted to put amenaza both smith just cause I like a man has a lot as a player, and he's been good the bat, but I'm gonna keep going, Keep Smith ahead of him just because just to keep that gap between Smiths and ah, of almost of winding up a play.
00:22:16
Yeah, Yeah, I think that's the right move.
00:22:20
And, um, gonna move over to the national starting lineup that I hope is going to have a bad offensive day today.
00:22:28
Hopefully, they don't dio, but starting leading off your obviously tree Turner Bank Second, He's Adam Eaton.
00:22:39
Castro's batting 3rd 1 Soto's been forth.
00:22:43
How Kendrick is.
00:22:45
Kendrick is batting fifth.
00:22:47
Cabrera is banning six.
00:22:49
Eric Themes is batting seventh.
00:22:51
Suzuki is betting a and robust is batting ninth and Anibal Sanchez is batting is starting, not the starting pitcher does.
00:23:01
Not that you trolls everything, but what do you think about the Nationals lineup? And how do you think there score? Infamous.
00:23:11
You know much.
00:23:12
I gotta send it.
00:23:13
C.
00:23:14
I believe it is the exact same lineup they had yesterday.
00:23:17
And so I think that, Yeah, I think they're lined up, but I think it's pretty solid.
00:23:24
I agree.
00:23:25
I hope yesterday wasn't wasn't they didn't have a lot of offense, either.
00:23:28
It's just the Mets at less.
00:23:30
So I think that hopefully that will happen again.
00:23:34
But hopefully the Mets are actually or runs.
00:23:38
So I think that the only thing I would have toe mention is that and the picture of Sanchez, he's open.
00:23:45
Chu is a 74 year and he is a 78 for you. All right.
00:23:50
So I mean, obviously, I think both pictures have only gotten two or three starts so far this year.
00:23:55
But I mean, you can hope that he doesn't do well.
00:24:01
I mean again, I mean, while in most answer is yes, he has struggled in the start.
00:24:07
I still don't have hope.
00:24:10
I will be pleasantly surprised.
00:24:13
I will be completely pleasantly surprised if guys.
00:24:16
Almond does well today.
00:24:17
I will be completely surprised, but it will be.
00:24:20
I would be pleasantly surprised if Zalman does better than and while Sanchez and does OK today.
00:24:27
But I do think this will be more of an offensive game.
00:24:30
Sanchez has struggled this year.
00:24:31
Krizelman isn't in my opinion, the right move and is just probably not going to be doing well this game.
00:24:40
So I'm not looking at this and saying that this is going to be a good oh, defensive battles.
00:24:47
So I think it's just gonna be on offensive battle.
00:24:50
We've seen the inconsistencies with the Mets offense, so, uh, it's going to be a little bit.
00:24:57
I think it's gonna be tight.
00:24:58
Offensive battle.
00:24:59
It might be a little bit more similar to the National, sadly, because the Mets inconsistent offense and then they're just that bullpen and everything.
00:25:09
But what do you think? I'm not like? What do you think the game is gonna end up like? I think I agree.
00:25:15
I think it's going to be I want to say it's gonna be an offensive battle, cause I'm pretty sure the Nationals are gonna hit well against gay Zelman and then I don't I don't think the Mets.
00:25:25
I don't think the Mets are going to pitch of that far, so I'm kind of happy with that.
00:25:31
But if they do, then I think I think the Nationals could probably easily tackle off ones against Godzilla.
00:25:37
Nothing is a bad picture to see essence started and like over a year, almost two years or something.
00:25:42
So I think that it's gonna be I think it might be an offensive day for the Nationals, and hopefully it will be an offensive day for the Mets and, well, but you can't say that at all because they're the Mets 2020 months and they don't like to four months.
00:25:59
For some reason, they like to get 10th and they never looks for once.
00:26:02
So I mean, being a Mets fan, you always have to be prepared for them to do something to ruin their season, and they'll give you sometimes false hope like in the 2015 season.
00:26:16
But in the end, there are ultimately the Mets and we've seen that this year and we have seen that in past years.
00:26:24
We've seen that with the suspect is injury with the bull the wild boar accident.
00:26:30
It's just the Mets have their limits, so nothing you can say about that.
00:26:36
But that's just aren't I don't I feel like in an offensive battle that inconsistencies.
00:26:43
The Mets offense.
00:26:45
I would fever nationals a little bit, but I'm hoping they could get up some runs.
00:26:51
We've seen them put up some race runs, but, um, I feel like this is gonna be definitely more of an offensive battle, but, um, we're going to go on.
00:27:02
Continuation of Peter Lanza struggles Part two.
00:27:05
What do you think Peter Alonso has been doing that has made him suck compared to last year? Just to put it bluntly, you're that's perfectly elastic.
00:27:16
All they He sucks.
00:27:18
He sucks right now.
00:27:19
So currently along, though, has ah, 1 97 batting average.
00:27:24
He has seven or be eyes.
00:27:25
He's only have three extra base.
00:27:28
It's this year, 56 at bats, which leads the entire mess teen, and he is 24 strikeouts, which also needs the team.
00:27:37
So that means that over 1/3 of the time he is striking out is that that's which is this just can't happen for someone like Pete Alonso.
00:27:49
We Mets depend on toe knock in runs, and so he has just been absolutely, terribly inconsistent some some days.
00:28:00
He he's some days you can see that he's holding off Christians.
00:28:04
He walks something.
00:28:05
He walked one or two times, sometimes in a game and you sometimes life.
00:28:10
He's to swing away at everything, and it's he just hasn't been consistent at all.
00:28:16
And so he has to cast it.
00:28:18
Just hope I want him, like, obviously not swing at bad pitches and chase everything in a Holien.
00:28:25
But I think that Alonso he needs to get his swim because currently his switch, his swing has to be in a position.
00:28:35
Where is he has a head on this one.
00:28:37
I don't know if he got rid of it and he still felt line or if he still has it.
00:28:40
I have a Martian close enough recently, but I think that Alonzo, he just needs to figure it out. Rules.
00:28:48
The Mets just have to start put in lower Lowell over, and sure enough, he might just might have might just not be able to start it because we have another first base that Smith can play for space.
00:28:59
He's only not neither of them are great in the field, really.
00:29:02
But this one play first base and we can make someone else th and along go out an off day yesterday and he could sit and he got.
00:29:13
So I think that he's got to figure it out.
00:29:16
Or else this mess team is gonna struggle to hit and run because they heavily depend on him that on that and they heavily dependent on him last year.
00:29:24
So that's Pope.
00:29:26
It's a few of part of the base, more than the seven months going above this is and consistency.
00:29:31
Yeah, I think to go along that you've been butterly.
00:29:35
You have been really pushing forward that stack trying to get that out there.
00:29:40
But, um, he has been straightening him.
00:29:43
He's been swinging at bad pitches in counts where he has the upper hand, and he's just been he's been very much so struggling.
00:29:54
I don't know if its been this prior season the previous season that here getting into his head like him, trying to, like, have to perform at such a level Teoh complete with that last season.
00:30:07
But I mean, I don't know what it is with him, I e.
00:30:11
Feel like, Yes, he developed a bad habit in the hitch from the off season, but he's just been he's been very.
00:30:18
He's been struggling a lot recently, and I just feel like he needs to figure himself out or we will see him in the shorter season.
00:30:27
Sadly, maybe probably end up on the bench a couple of games, maybe, like get benched.
00:30:33
I don't know.
00:30:34
I feel like that's a little bit of extreme.
00:30:36
But he and if he continues to play this way, we might see him get suffer Dominic Smith or other guys and we might see him start last.
00:30:48
We might see him not start almost every game and take, maybe get benched a couple times, but like he needs to figure this out Now he's such he's such a driving point from its offense, and he's kind of if when he's doing good, it just feels very, very like good for the Mets and everyone.
00:31:11
I feel like the Mets really take off that and do very well.
00:31:15
Like just as a team like um, he and home run I feel against the Marlins.
00:31:21
I believe and was I feel like that was the game.
00:31:23
Yeah, that was the game.
00:31:24
They put up eight runs, so I feel like when he's doing well, the offense is doing very well.
00:31:29
So I feel like Alonso us to produce more.
00:31:32
For the Mets to be successful, or I feel like he's gonna end up on the bench.
00:31:38
That's just one other thing I just want to say about Alonso.
00:31:44
Sitting is the two home runs he hates.
00:31:46
You get one against Boston, hit one over, get one over the Green Monster, and then he at one on and Citi Field, obviously against the Marlins.
00:31:55
Both of them were like lying were life Ah, 100 plus violent.
00:32:01
Our line drives that barely went over well, so that's the type of hitter that Alonso is.
00:32:08
He's a line drive hitter who happens to them extremely hard, which is why he had so many home runs.
00:32:14
And I think that might be It might be kind of what you said about him trying to hit home runs because he's like, worried about since he wants to perform.
00:32:23
This is well, you did last year.
00:32:25
I think that he might be trying to swing for the fences and that make me why he's got that hit because he trying to take more of an uppercut, swings that way.
00:32:33
He gets the ball higher, and that doesn't work with a long focus.
00:32:37
*** is not the hitter he is, so I think that he needs toe.
00:32:42
He needs the stood.
00:32:44
Maybe even, like take a few days off.
00:32:46
Maybe I think it might just need toe, take a few days off and, like, just work on his hitting workers fundamentals.
00:32:54
This make sure he's keeping his head on the ball when he swinging that way, he makes contact.
00:32:59
Is he's given striking out.
00:33:00
So watching, he says, not making good contact, we don't So that's my take on Alonso.
00:33:08
Yeah, Um, yeah, I feel like he's just been he's been struck, going.
00:33:14
He's been struggling, consists the lately and I do.
00:33:19
I feel like it is it's got into aside and he I feel like that.
00:33:23
Maybe him taking some days off is actually might be better for him to kind of calm down and re figure himself out and maybe work on swing mechanics and just figure him so, uh, get ready for the rest of the season, which isn't that long.
00:33:39
I feel like he has to produce and more of a short period of time, and he really wants to produce that the same level he was at last year.
00:33:49
And to do that he's gone away from what made him so successful last year, and as a result, that's affected him.
00:33:57
And that's and we've seen what the effects of that has been in his swing and in his stats and as our end on just what he's produced list this year.
00:34:09
Computer last year is is not is not what we are, not what I feel like he can do as a player, all right? Yeah.
00:34:24
So do you have anything to add on it? Or I don't renting about Alonso.
00:34:33
So you gonna do you have anything more to add to the Mets, Rance, or doing a rep? Oh, I think the only other thing I possibly want to emphasize is, um, when I talked about that, um, Twitter thing about that when we go hosted the press Common saying how like Seth luego is, he needs to stay in the bullpen, causes the stability and, like everyone's like like hissy every one of the comments that is yelling about one of the common system.
00:35:03
And he is right, like the Mets start like this.
00:35:06
He was like, Yeah, that's on stability that will And I'm not gonna is completely argued yet because obviously, their bullpen is no.
00:35:14
Nowhere in your, but you have good pictures.
00:35:19
We have someone like Jared huge, who's done really well so far, and he's just been pitching really well.
00:35:26
And I think that way.
00:35:29
Have Diaz who I mean.
00:35:31
He has been struggling as much as last year so far, at least, and obviously he's extremely inconsistent.
00:35:36
But when he's when he's good, he is good and he gets lots of strikeouts.
00:35:41
And so if he saw when he was playing for the Mariners.
00:35:44
But I think that I'm biggest fair to say the Metsbullpen like is terrible.
00:35:50
It sucks.
00:35:51
Obviously, it's not good because it's not consistent.
00:35:54
But I think that it's kind of it's kind of just a bad judgment just to say that the Mets bullpen is that because sometimes it's good, obviously not all the time.
00:36:05
But I think that if the if the Mets bullpen pitchers can figure out how justice, start pitching a bit more consistently, then I think that your bullpen just could could be really soul it and that could second, that could have sold.
00:36:19
Like a lot of problems we had last year last year remain problems. Their bullpen.
00:36:23
So the squad and so have mentioned that one thing, cause I think people are people full.
00:36:30
Hated the bullpen, I think, deservedly, because as a best friend, I couldn't agree what our bullpen blows because it happens too often.
00:36:37
I was having too often last year, but I think that sometimes not enough credit is given to Arbil country because you have good pictures.
00:36:45
Yeah, I do agree with you on all the those comments I think we've I think we might have ranted on that earlier a little bit, but you did go a little bit more in depth on me thing.
00:36:58
But, um, I do agree with you.
00:37:00
Let's have a lot of issues.
00:37:02
I think we've covered most of them.
00:37:05
But, um, I hope that the game was better than what we forecasted here, huh? So without that, do you have any more comments? Because before we end this stream, I do not Okay, so with that we end Mets range Pregame episode one.
00:37:28
Tune in for Episode two of Metreon Creaking if they suck.
00:37:31
If they don't, it will be.
00:37:33
Mets are great.
00:37:34
Yea, really mean that's pregame, but I'm gonna It could be listed in this pre game because you got you got to go on and then you got to see if it's a random, but without that, without further who Let's end this dream.
00:37:50
So thanks for coming on, Uh, and we will.
