Scooter CF
Frazier 3B
Nimmo LF
ACab 2B
Bruce RF
Meso C
DomS 1B
Rosario SS
Wheeler P


OK, maybe try taking Scooter out of CF... at least start with that. I don't generally buy into defensive assignments screwing with players' hitting but once in a while that could get into someone's head. Scooter is like 4 for his last 36 or something ridiculous like that. So something out of the box Mick.. jeez. I just don't get where the thinking that Scooter is better in CF than Nimmo comes from.

Why do I even try? We all know that once the bats come around a little, the pitching will go off the rails.

I liked Rosario batting 9th. I wonder why they're moving away from that.

Even if they're a wash performance-wise, Nimmo has to be more comfortable there considering relative number of reps at the position. Conforto in center makes sense in a lineup with Cespedes and Bruce both mashing. It makes a lot more sense when you're starting Nimmo in a corner.

I just don't get why the most prominent move of Mickey's lineup shakeups always is "lets move NImmo out of the leadoff spot and see what happens."

The value there is the huge OBP. Having more guys to make outs in front of him doesn't help.

It's a regressive move. Callaway and the media talked about how progressive he would be as a manager, but he's stuck with conventional bullpen moves, had a quick hook with SP when there's a pinch hitting opportunity (regardless if it's a good pinch hitting opportunity), and "rewarded" Nimmo with a move from 1 to 3 in the lineup.

What exactly did he take from working with Francona?

Also, what happened to getting Bruce time at 1B to get other hitters in the lineup (like the right-handed Bautista)?

Is the batting order generally selected from names in a hat?

The Mets batted .147 on their nine-game homestand that ended Sunday. Since 1900, that was the lowest batting average by any major-league team on a homestand of seven or more games (of which there were more than 13,000).

That was a filthy pitch to strikeout Freeman. Wow, 99 up and in.
