Re: 2016 NY Mets' March To A Championship!

Why is the bench coach taking a picture with the Mets starting rotation?

Is Colon the only one of them to not have had Tommy John?

I predict a 20 game winner out of that group. (Hopefully it's individually and not as a group)...

I hope Cespedes doesn't go broke before the season starts.

I certainly hope that Harvey is okay. Mets are being tight lipped.

Nope.

Seriously though, great pitching staff and I'm glad the Giants only have to see them a couple times a year.

Re: 2016 NY Mets' March To A Championship!

I love this time of year for many reasons.

Opening Day is quickly approaching, fantasy baseball drafts and the NY Mets thread!

It's amazing what a year will do. Last year seemed to be a given how successful Washington would be. This year it's the Mets/Cubs with all the headlines.

Bladder infection. Still good to go on Sunday.

Cause of bladder issue per Harvey: holding it too much when he's gotta go.

Nope, he had him for dinner.

I think their pitching staff makes the Mets a safe bet to make the playoffs. I still wouldn't favor them to go deep in the playoffs, but you never know in baseball.

Re: 2016 NY Mets' March To A Championship!

Ok...slow start.

I'm a little worried and Harvey's mechanics from the stretch, Duda's lack of hitting, and d'Naurd's injury and poor start hitting.

Thankfully...152 more games to play.

I'm marching, just not posting.

Seriously, it's been many years since I checked the box score of every single game, from the start of the season. Pumped for this season, hope they can sustain.

Re: 2016 NY Mets' March To A Championship!

The Mets' path to a championship was a little easier last year when the Nationals were such an inept club. They seem to be playing up to their ability a little more this season, although struggling a bit of late.

It's funny how things can sometimes change. Growing up, I disliked the Mets because of their rivalry with the Cards in the mid-80's. Now I enjoy seeing them doing well.

Great win against a solid performance by Scherzer.

Game two in 9hr!

Thor might be heading for Tommy John. If so, you can put a fork in this season.

Re: 2016 NY Mets' March To A Championship!

Zach Wheeler has also had a serious setback from his Tommy John surgery and it wouldn't surprise me if the Mets shut him down for another couple of months.

There are pitchers that still don't come back from TJ surgery.

everything I have read yesterday and today says that both players are ok, with relatively minor setbacks and not serious TJ setbacks. Where are you guys getting info from?
