Agree with you Mike but let's remember we have a new reactive manager and coaches, including a new medical staff. Having two pitching coaches doesn't hurt either. Nice to hear they don't pull punches.

Plus the fact we have been able to come back after trailing. Having guys like Frazier and Gonzalez added to the lineup this year gives me so much more confidence, especially against pitchers we have had trouble with in the past.

Syndergaard was good, not great today. Fish are going to have a long season. Offense did just enough to keep us out of trouble. A big hit and Mets could have broken that one open.


Agree. Syndergaard has looked so, so to me. Interesting that he didn't hit the 100 mph gun last night. Was hoping he was going for more contact instead of strikeouts. Still has to improve holding runners on base. I still feel deGrom is our best pitcher.

Understand that Nimmo needs to play but this leaves us with Reyes as the only left-handed bat which isn't good. I also would have preferred P.J. Conlon because he is a lefty over Oswalt at this time. Thrilled to be 8-1 and love the new coaching staff but its a long season but can't too excited this early.

Very nice. Good early season win. We have set a nice early season tone. Callaway has brought a whole different vibe to this team. Would really be something going if we can sweep them tomorrow night. LGM!




Right on,break up the Mets. A win tonight gives us 4 straight series wins. You gotta believe!

I think Conlon just pitched and would have to be added to 40 man. Plus Marlins only have one big lefty bat in Bour.

Must want an extra bullpen arm given that they have not gotten a lot of innings from starters early on. They will need another corresponding move tomorrow when they call up Zack Wheeler to start in Miami.

And it has to be a relief pitcher that gets sent down.

Thanks. Just thinking we need another lefty reliever at some point. Especially with Harper and Freeman in the division.

Do you realize that two MLB teams are owned by SJU grads - Miami and Tampa Bay.
