and not down goes fraser - the todd meister.
a 2 strike, first row homer. game over.
the plate was very, very wide for both teams. hard to get a rally going.

Tough loss with our ace on the mound. The offense was dead tonight.

As a Mets fan it's never been more obvious how different the organizations are especially on the administrative level. The Mets must have the worst ownership in all of baseball consistently. For all the benefits that come along with being a major market team in a baseball-crazed city and our own network, the Mets have more than underachieved...they can't do any worse.

It's time to slide Torres and Andujar up the batting order. At least until some of the other guys start hitting. Boone needs to send a message that Bird, Sanchez and Stanton need to start producing if they wanna bat 3-4-5. This lineup will be flat out terrifying once those three guys figure it out in the regular season.

But the question is if they figure it out. Their at bats are horrible. Actually, throughout this lineup the at bats are really not very good. I walked away from this series feeling like it was a loss, given the result last night with your ace on the mound. Should have been a sweep.

I never liked the Stanton deal, his contract will be a huge problem once some of the baby bombers need to get paid. Though there is very little to complain about, I agree with the lineup issues. It feels like everyone is swinging for the HR or looking to walk. At some point balls need to get hit and score some runs using small ball. As I've stated before, this will be an issue in the post season when all you face is good to elite pitching. Bird and Sanchez will figure it out, those guys are tremendous hitters and are thought of extremely highly within the organization. Both would be .300 hitters if they wanted to sacrifice the power.

Well it was Otani or Stanton and one is looking a lot better right about now.

Agree about the bad calls, especially against Stanton. Definitely a pitchers umpire last night. Happy for that. Umps have been terrible this year.

I know about Stanton potential, and his 59HRS & winning the mvp last year.

Right now though, at this point, he sucks.
Down 2-0, maybe the 6th inning?, a guy on, 3-2count and 2 outs, the pitch is over the plate, but he just looks at it.
Trying to work a walk? How about swing the damn bat?

Stanton has 15 HRs and 34 RBIs, not exactly sucking.
