    Pitching Matchups




    Colon: Colon's ERA may be 4.50, but more than half the runs against him came in one start. In his other four outings, he holds a 2.33 ERA with 23 strikeouts and one walk. Colon was not originally scheduled to pitch Thursday, but rain pushed back his start.
    Nicasio: Nicasio struggled with his fastball and gave up eight hits, two home runs, and five runs in 4 1/3 innings in a loss to the Dodgers. In his last two games, he's worked just 9 1/3 innings and has a loss and a no-decision.



    Wheeler: Wheeler pitched well throughout the month of April, but he struggled in the two areas he worked on most heavily this spring: control and efficiency. He has nine walks over his last 16 1/3 innings, a rate of almost five free passes per nine.
    De La Rosa: De La Rosa forced 13 ground-ball outs in seven innings in a victory at Dodger Stadium on Sunday -- his strongest start this year. De La Rosa gave up one run and four of the Dodgers' eight hits in the first two innings.



    Mejia: Mejia had not endured a truly rough outing until his last time out, when the Marlins tagged him for five runs in the sixth inning of a loss. He will look to recover against the Rockies at hitter-friendly Coors Field.
    Morales: Morales picked up the win for a third consecutive start his last time out. He allowed four runs on seven hits and two walks with two strikeouts in five innings Monday vs. the D-backs.



    Gee: Gee is coming off the best outing of any Mets starter this season, firing eight shutout innings Sunday against the Marlins. He struggled in his only outing at Coors Field last season, giving up five runs in 4/23 innings amidst frigid conditions.
    TBA: TBA

    I think we can sweep, but I voted split because I'm trying not to be blindly optimistic.

    New York lineup 5/1: Lagares CF, Murphy 2B, Wright 3B, Duda 1B, C. Young LF, Granderson RF, d'Arnaud C, Tejada SS, Colon RHP

    Best lineup to date, but I still would like to flip Lagares and Granderson.

    Something tells me that was a directive from the FO.

    Definitely. No way TC came up with that on his own.

    TC does not like to move too many people around the lineup. If he swaps out EYJ for Lagares, he prefers to use the replacement player at the same spot in the order. That's how TC likes to roll. You never heard him say that? I've heard it a half-dozen times.

    I'm not surprised by the lineup. In fact, I thought Lagares would simply move right into EYJ's spot.

    Split. I expect the Rockies to hit with 6 of their everyday players hitting over .300 (which doesn't include Cargo) and at home.

    Who do you think wanted Lagares to start over EYJ in tonight's game, TC likes EYJ. That's how he rolls.

    I'm hoping we split. This will be a tough series.

    TC talked about EYJ’s value off the bench. Made it sound like he might be the guy who loses some playing time in this outfield.

    This is the series where the Mets' bats wake up and their pitching stifles a good hitting club.

    TC stated he was playing all 4 OFers. Lagares is the natural replacement for EYJ in CF.

    And now we have this...
