There are multiple people here who routinely call for this type of "justice." Its insane. McCann looks to luckily be OK.


Except there was nothing to get 'justice' for in this case, at least not on McCann. Cabrera (the star player) messes with your catcher so you throw at McCann's (a bit player) head? That's a bit...odd. And on an 0-1 count too.


I get that but I don't see any way it was not deliberate. Usually you can tell when a ball slips. It doesn't appear this was close to the case here.

Oh I'm definitely suspect of Betances too and he deserves what he gets vis-a-vis a suspension and probably then some, but I just don't get why it had to be McCann that met frontier justice.

Brandon Nimmo has played in 65 MLB games and has never attempted a SB. That's wild.

You left out the fact that he's got a .369 OBP in those games. Wild, indeed. We were hoping for a Curtis Granderson-type hitter. Pretty shocking to end up with Jason Kendall.

Remember that blazing speed that was advertised on draft day.

What's most interesting to me is that he's completely not the guy the Mets thought they were drafting and in any event still made it to the majors as a functional player. Time will tell whether he can keep his OBP up (his only deeply valuable skill), but his overall development has been just a slow climb up the ladder by being good enough for the level.

Maybe if you let him know he isn't going to be benched for 2 weeks if he gets thrown out he might be a little more aggressive.

Is that why he didn't have one SB attempt in LV this year in 42 games? and 0 in 5 games in St. Lucie rehabbing?

Maybe he's been medically told not to steal bases a la Gsellman not swinging the bat last year :P
