As good as the Yankees have been and as potent as their lineup is, they are certain that they will be even better with Gary Sanchez healthy and hitting. Getting the catcher back from the disabled list Friday night offered the sort of new-lease-on-life lift a club gets from having made a big trade.
Then again, seeing the way Domingo German pitched in his 3 2⁄3 innings against the Mets at Yankee Stadium indicated a trade is something the team still can use. He allowed four runs to a team that has trouble scoring, evidence that the Yankees’ major concern is who is making the pitches, not who is calling them.
Still, Sanchez gave the first game after the All-Star break a sort of Opening Day feeling: An attitude that says anything is possible and the best days are ahead.
“I expect more of myself. I know I can be better in certain areas. The focus is now to help the team,” he said through an interpreter before the Subway Series opener, his first appearance after having missed 20 games with a groin strain. “You want to improve in everything. I want to improve my defense. I want to be more selective at the plate.”
His work behind the plate has caught flak, particularly from former manager Joe Girardi. He entered the game with the lowest batting average, .190, in the Yankees’ lineup. His franchise, its fans and opponents all nonetheless recognize what he can do. Every time his name was mentioned, strong cheers went up.
“Huge. When he’s right, he’s a true impact hitter, obviously,” manager Aaron Boone said, adding that Gleyber Torres is expected back Wednesday. “We’re excited to get that back to really have the ability to add length to our lineup.”
Sanchez went 1-for-5, striking out twice — in the seventh with two men on and in the eighth with the tying run on third. His only hit in the Yankees’ 7-5 loss was a shift-beating single in the sixth. Before the game he assured everyone that he was 100 percent.
“I got hurt when I was running, it wasn’t when I was catching. so there’s really no need to change anything. I want to keep playing hard,” he said.
When Yoenis Cespedes initially hit the baseball, he seemed frustrated with the result: a fly ball destined for foul ground, or Brett Gardner's glove, or both. But as Cespedes jogged toward first, the ball offered a long-lost reminder of his strength, clanging off the left-field foul pole for a solo homer.
So Here we go again talking about the First half of the 2018 New York Mets. As we Draw a close on the first Half lets take account of the ups and downs. To start it off The main concern was The manger's position, After firing Terry Collins The Mets Brought in a Guy Who thought would fix the pieces and would give the clubhouse a new look overall, Which was the Pitching coach of Cleveland Indians Mickey Callaway. As bringing him in and shed new perspective the New York Mets Sign him to a 3 Year deal in package would fix the ball club's problems. In the Off-season we pick up a few guy Like Todd Frazier, Re-sign Jason Bay and added a few new additions like Jason Vargas, Anthony Swarazk, Devin Mesoraco and many others to follow. To start off the beginning the Mets went 11-1 to start off the season which lead to decline after Cespedes Got injured in mid May Todd Frazier having a big Start with a New Ball Club and Devin Mesoraco rejuvenating his career as he been injured for the last 2 years on and off. You can't forget the Best Pitcher in Baseball Jacob Degrom who is just lights out with a 1.68 Era who is just the Ace on this team and Steven Matz Trying for a comeback year, and Zack Wheeler making a impact showing his great stuff as well. After all the many issues we have faced since the all-star break the Mets are 15 games out in the first half. Expect to see Many guys trying to step up in the second half Like Cespedes, coming off injury make a impact with the bat. Looking Forward to Have Degrom Keep up the hard work. Just maybe get help with the bats like the slump of Micheal Confronto who is just so cold in July and hope to see him heat the bat up very soon. While its all over for Jose Reyes. Expect to see Amad Rosario continue to having a hot bat which started before the All-Star break. However, you also cant forget the Year Brandon Nimmo is having. while Brandon should be playing everyday. Also on the Plus side you can't forget the many walk-off we had this year, which Wilmer Flores hold the Mets Record with 5 Walk off home-runs and Jose Beautista having his First in his career. If the Mets stay healthy and win games you can expect to see the Mets tear it up Still need help with pitching but the best four you need to keep them in tact. Expecting to see The Metropolitan player better baseball while some coming off injury this team should be in the wild card talks for 2018.
Many people criticize the idea for Bryce Harper to ever step into the Mets Uniform, But many people think that can get a chance to become a better ball club if they do. Bryce Harper is on his final year with the Nationals and many teams looking forward into the slugger. Meanwhile not have a great year with some struggles and wining. Mets could way their options if they are really serious in bringing him to flushing. Would Mets Fans would like to see him its a 50/50 but looking at number would say otherwise.
David Quinn, while discussing why he hired David Oliver and Greg Brown, said that it was important for him to have assistants that he can "trust and have confidence in."
He noted that while he has a past with with both of them, he didn't just hire a "a couple of buddies."
Quinn said that both of them are "extremely well-respected throughout the hockey world" and will be "major factors in helping us become the team we want to be and can be."
Quinn noted that while both lack NHL experience, Lindy Ruff is still around and his experience is "one of the assets he brings to our group."
Quinn said that Oliver has a lot of experience working with NHL players and that Greg is as "well-respected as anyone at any level for his ability to develop high-end players."
Chris Kreider, who was at BC, with Brown, said that he is "incredibly excited" to work with Brown again and said that he, as well as the entire staff at BC, played a big role in his development. (NYR)
The Brown is one of the best "tacticians among college assistant coaches."
Kevin Shattenkirk, who was part of the Avs organization with Oliver, said that Oliver was someone who helped him understand what it was like to be a pro. (NYR)
Shattenkirk noted that while Oliver can be intense, it's because he "loves the game and he loves the team that he's associated with, and he's very passionate about it." (NYR)
Quinn said that Oliver is someone that relates well to players and that players respect the effort and time he puts into working with them. (NYR)
On the two hires, Quinn said "I have a great personal relationship with them but also have immense professional respect for them. It really was a home run in all those areas." (NYR)
Jets great Darrelle Revis is retiring after an 11-year career, including eight years spent with New York (2007-2012, 2015-2016).
The league's top corner during his prime, the 33-year-old Revis said "my passion to play the game at an elite level brought fun and excitement to the term 'shutdown corner' which was nearly on the verge of extinction."
Revis had 25 interceptions during his Jets career, and 29 overall.
The Jets drafted Revis with the 14th overall pick in the 2007 NFL Draft, and he took the league by storm shortly after
Mets RHP Jacob deGrom pitched the third inning and allowed a home run in the MLB All-Star game on Tuesday night at Nationals Park.
DeGrom entered in relief of NL starter Max Scherzer and retired the first two batters to face him before Mike Trout homered to left field. DeGrom struck out J.D. Martinez for the third out.
Playing in his second MLB All-Star game, deGrom threw 15 pitches, 10 of which were strikes. He was replaced in the fourth inning by Braves RHP Mike Foltynewicz.
Yoenis Cespedes recently told the Mets he'd be willing to learn to play first base, and he played nine innings at the position on Wednesday in his third rehab game (while hitting a three-run homer), keeping him on track for a potential return Friday against the Yankees in the Bronx.
Cespedes had already been taking ground balls at first base, and the situation was addressed last week by Mickey Callaway, who said the expectation was that Cespedes would return as a left fielder.
I've seen Cespedes often taking ground balls at third base and shortstop during spring training and before games. He's adept with the glove and we know he has a terrific arm. But, I have no idea how he'd handle the unique footwork, stretching and understanding of situational positioning that comes with playing first base.
A source told Sherman that the outfielder believes a move to first base might lessen the strain on his legs, which has been the source of Cespedes missing roughly 30 percent of the team's games since he was acquired in 2015.
Cespedes first went on the disabled list this season with a hip flexor issue 58 days ago. However, he suffered a quad injury just before nearing a return in June.
Sandy Alderson later described the hip issue as 'chronic,' which is the same word John Ricco recently used to describe the current debilitating pain in Yo's heel.
Nevertheless, he could be on the verge of a return to the Mets. Could it be as a first baseman?
After being given a 'mental break' by manager Mickey Callaway at the end of June to work on his swing, Mets SS Amed Rosario is heating up and feeling good.
Rosario has been particularly productive over his last six games, hitting 8-18 with three doubles and three triples. This season, Rosario is hitting .249/.294/.386 with 4 HR, 22 RBI and 25 XBH.
"I try to bring energy and stay positive and swing at good pitches," Rosario said after the Mets' 4-2 win over the Nationals. "I'm feeling more confident at home plate. I'm feeling much better with the mechanics and the confidence, too."
Brandon Nimmo a very appreciated player for the New York Mets Last Night does it again late in the 10th with a 3 run bomb that would let the phillies go home angry. What sends This humble and loyal Beginning for Nimmo is that he appreciates the loyalty of the fans He says " Thank you For coming even though we all not doing the job". His leadership seems to be genuine he is a old country boy and with his smile and power around the base pads sure enough shows that being here is where he wants to be and loves every minute of it. He should be a leader on this ball club and when its David Wright's time to leave making him the captain would be suggested.
Zack Wheeler has joined Jeurys Familia and Asdrubal Cabrera as the Mets most likely to be traded this month, although surprises remain possible, and no one is untouchable. Familia and Cabrera are the obvious trade candidates, because both are free agents at the end of the season. Wheeler has one additional year of control, and teams are showing interest. If the Mets can get, say, a top ten prospect and another depth piece, they will likely move him.Wilmer Flores has less value, but could also go. The Yankees have checked in on Wheeler - but, as always, it's hard to imagine the teams actually working out a deal. No deals are expected in the next few days.The Mets have many big picture considerations with their rotation, including whether to trade Jacob deGrom or Noah Syndergaard this offseason. Keeping Wheeler would make that easier, and the Mets could still do that, if the offers this month aren't to their liking. There is another category of young, controllable Mets, which includes Steven Matz, Amed Rosario, Michael Conforto, Brandon Nimmo, Seth Lugo and Robert Gsellman, who are much less likely to be traded. Those are the types of players that the team wants to acquire, not discard. But even with those guys, no one is totally untouchable. Ownership has tasked the Mets' interim front office to think creatively, and they are following that directive.
We the American People love our jobs want success and sure enough President Trump brings just that not because he talks like a human being he talks like an american and the fact is its scaring the shit out of people. When was the last time you really saw a president wants to help our nation and only benefit our nation only. Ronald Reagan is always pointed out through the american people because their have been some who was around during his term and see the same ways you see in him with President Trump. Policy might not be his strong points but letting him do his work and getting things done is most important.
Lets look back as we talk what the mets can do when it comes to younger talent who the mets Need in the off-season. First Off 1st Base, We know for a fact that Dom Smith is not the guy their at first so we need a batter who is much aggressive along with his power and stability. Granted Yes we love Wilmer Flores but he is not in future for Mets. SS Amed Rosiario is not for Mets Plans yes he does a few good things but he is not plans the mets need. 3rd Base When we talk about 3rd base who do you think of David Wright. David is the Mets captain and nobody is really complaining about his loyalty. In fact we want to see him come back again either way especially with back problems in fact not going to see him back onto the field again. Yonies Cespedes In fact not the guy any longer and in long terms unwilling to kept healthy and hurt the Mets This season. Are we going to see him back this season probably not at all this season. Micheal Conforto is your future center fielder he has the speed the length and wideness becoming a all-star in the making. Therefore, this guys don't need an introduction in fact a humble player and need more players like him is Brandon Nimmo. Brandon Nimmo is the guy you want on your team he's always willing to learn and seems like a player who works hard and will see his power to the outfield every-time at bat. Which he's future with the Mets will stay if he just keeps doing what he does best and that play aggressive. every time at bat and every-time playing the Field you will see the best quality out of him.
As all Mets fan know the Golden voices of the Mets broadcast Gary Keith and Ron Darling. Have been the voice for the Mets for the past Few Years and we have to say Mets Fan Sure do Love These Three Clowns. In addition to the Title Fans love on how Gary Cohen is the Biggest Ginks in baseball. Sure Enough, Keith Is the Strat-o-Matic Analyzer with a joking personality sure does get under fans skins when he loves to rub in the face of Mets Fans when Cincinnati comes to town. However, Furthermore, you got the fans to enjoy for Ron Darling with his Sports Announcing skills and Talking about pitching is a hard task. Ronny Is always Talking about the Other teams as well Gary Just love to stay on the Other player's side. How can Mets Fans even enjoy three announcers patting themselves on the shoulder when every announcer in baseball talks about their team and their team only. This Isn't national broadcast and sticks with the team and the team alone. How many times you hear Gary Cohen shout when the other side hits a home run, or Ron darling loves talking about the other team's pitcher's do you find these annoying let's hear your thoughts
As it Could be possible to digest but why the Hell Not? Johnathan Lucroy is one of the best catchers in the game if the Mets are really looking to change the position this season which became a disaster. Look for a revamp The catching position for next season. If i were Omar see this guy in a Mets Uniform Next Season in 2019.
Yankees manager Aaron Boone once again left a starter in too long resulting in a home run, which was the first of Machado's two dingers. Tanaka was on a pitch count in the "80-ish" range in his first game back from the disabled list, yet Boone allowed him to start the fifth inning at 75 pitches after a 30-pitch fourth inning. Meanwhile, Green had been very solid of late, allowed Machado's second homer after being extended to a second inning in his outing.
In a tough loss like tonight's, it is sometimes better for sanity's sake to look at the positives. The one clear positive was Bird's long home run and sac fly accounting for four of the Yankees runs. Bird absolutely has to get on a hot streak. We thought it might happen after the two-homer game over a week ago, but he went 5-for-25 after it heading into today. Bird's bat needs to be a complement to the right-handed heavy hitting Yankees club and he's surely talented enough to provide it. However, after a while, results are needed not talk of upside potential.
Rosario's three-hit game was his third this season and fifth in his career. His first triple, which came in the third inning, was his first since May 30 against the Rockies. The 22-year-old Rosario hit his second triple of the game in the seventh inning when he drove in Jose Reyes.Rosario also scored twice, including on a sacrifice fly in Mets RHP Drew Gagnon's first Major League plate appearance Rosario became the youngest player to hit multiple triples in a game since then-21-year-old Dalton Pompey achieved the feat with the Blue Jays in 2014. Rosario's two-triple game was the first by a Met since Jose Reyes hit two triples in a game on July 22 of last season.
He was in the midst of a 3-for-28 streak heading into the game. Rosario is now hitting .242 with 14 doubles, four triples, four home runs, and 22 RBI in 85 games with the Mets this season.
Knox scored 22 points in his Summer League debut before scoring 19 in his second game.
Despite the early success, GM Scott Perry is not going to get his hopes up too soon.
"I think it's way too early to make an assessment after two summer-league games,'' Perry said before Tuesday's game, according to sources and people i have talked too . "You have to measure it -- excitement or disappointment. Do we see encouraging things? Yes. We know these aren't the guys they're playing against or not playing against in the fall.''Knox, 18, was selected ninth overall by the Knicks after he played one season at Kentucky. Expect this Kid to put up a whopping 25 points a game and will become the future for the knicks.
The Mets should trade for Manny Machado. With one move, they could excite their fans, grab the back page back from the Yankees, and try to extend their window to win with one of the best players in baseball.
Money is not an issue here. Machado will make about $17 million next year, roughly what the Mets paid Neil Walker in 2017. Sandy Alderson has said many times that there is no such thing as a bad one-year deal.
The only question is whether the Mets have enough to offer in a trade, even with Machado set to become a free agent after the coming season. According to major league sources, the Orioles are seeking two young, controllable pitchers in exchange for Machado, who wants to play shortstop.
The Mets should see if they can tempt the O's with Steven Matz, whose value is limited by his injury history, but who is still young, talented and lefthanded. Add to that one or two of the young arms acquired in last August's selloff. Again, that might not be enough, but it's worth a shot.
