Granderson and Rivera won't be in the starting lineup against Vance Worley.

Nimmo CF
Cabrera 2B
Cespedes LF
Conforto RF
Flores 3B
Smith 1B
Rosario SS
Plawecki C
Montero P

Looking forward to Cecchini getting a shot in the leadoff slot if only to have four consecutive Cs atop the lineup.

Sandy just must be fucking with Cabrera by not trading him at this point.

Can they just stop playing right now and let everyone rest up for next year?

Since I brought it up last night -- Tom Koehler AAA update, for what it's worth: 1.67 ERA in 37 2/3 innings (seven games), with 55 K.

(Sigh.)
I believe that someday I will punch that arrogant foreman at the plant square on his fat nose; that I will get in the last word with my wife; that I will win the Irish sweepstakes; that the Mets will start a winning streak.

Obviously doesn't have the smarts to make it back the bigs but that's OK. Not all of us can afford a great education and it's no reason not to like the guy.

Joanne Worley and (Mary) Tyler Moore?!? ... it's like they don't even feel they have to put an all-male lineup out there to beat us, so just let a couple of '70s TV comediennes handle it.

I'm hoping this is the beginning of Nimmo nailing down that leadoff spot and owning it.

You see Nimmo getting to Gordon's hit in a hurry and holding him to a single?

Nimmo can play center.

Rosario also looking more comfortable at short.

And the entire Mets squad forgets how many outs there are.

Sheesh, guys, one day without Granderson.

Nuthin' like getting shut down for some 15 innings by the likes of Justin Niccolino and Vance Worley and leaving the likes of Flexen & Montero with ZERO margin for error.

That's the second pop-up that Rosario has missed despite seeming to have it lined up.
Neither was an easy chance, but in both cases he looked like he did the hard part by getting there only to then whiff on it.

One run home, but a good job bailing out by Montie.

Problem is that one run is intimidating lead these days.

He's got 91 pitches and he leads off the bottom of the inning. Think we see Cecchini?

I think it may be time to stop the "Montero is pitching, is he all we have?" kinds of comments. He is now pitching like a solid, if not spectacular, major league starter - a back end of the rotation type of pitcher. Most of his past few games have resulted in "quality starts" and that is what we expect from that type of pitcher.

Mets get Montero off the hook.

It would be lovely to get him a lead here.
