Watching the game on mlb.tv. An ESPN broadcast; the announcers are horrible. This is cruel and unusual punishment. Have to turn off the sound.
RG – I’ve turned the sound off on ESPN, too – that network is really awful at covering baseball.
sir i just do not understand omar’s thinking we sign castillo to a 4 year contract, he is 37 with no range and at best a punch and judy hitter- i have watched him play all pre season and do not understand how castillo can start over gotay- we are giving up on a young promising prospect for a washed up veteran- with alou-castillo-delgado- el-duque and tatis i was wondering is omar supporting the old age home for spanish players
Hey John Gironda,
Why are there so many people who post complaints about the Mets whose basis for discontent are based mostly on false facts? That would be my question. How old is Castillo again?
Let me state the facts for all reading this blog, since you did not. Castillo is 32 for most of this season, which is a far far cry from your incorrect listed age of 37. That is not even in the same universe when discussing “old age homes for Spanish players”. Now that you have been made aware of Castillo’s real age, (something you should have known before typing your comment) do you still have the same argument?
People, please do all blog readers a favor and know your facts before you type something just to type something. It is embarrassing to see these comments as a true Mets fan for over 20 years.
My opinion is that Gotay is an unknown. I would love it if he had options, however he clearly was not going to start here after the Mets signed Castillo to that long term deal.
Was the deal too long? I do believe it was. However, at this point what can be done about it? As a bench player, Gotay lost out to the better right-handed hitters because that is what the Mets obviously lack the most. If Gotay were a better hitter from the right side, then I am sure he would be the occupant of that last roster spot. As it is, I would much rather Brady Clark make the team than Gotay because of his prowess against lefties.
If Gotay tears it up against lefties somewhere else, which remains to be seen, then my assessment would be wrong. The point is, how good is Gotay after one season of moderate success form the right side? KC is the other team to roll those dice and part with him. We will surely see.
“My opinion is that Gotay is an unknown.”
How is he supposed to become a “known” unless he gets a chance?
“The point is, how good is Gotay after one season of moderate success form the right side? KC is the other team to roll those dice and part with him. We will surely see.”
Talk about getting facts straight. Gotay was a top prospect for KC so there was no “rolling of the dice” on him there. They gave up on him after he struggled in the bigs. The Mets took a flier on him and he played well in AAA and showed potential in a fairly extended look as a starter.
Further, Gotay is not good from the right side, which is why he was waived. He is a very solid hitter from the left side, especially as a 2B.
Hello, I found this blog from bing and read a few of your other articles. They are very good. Please continue this great work… Cheers, Steve.
