    If Smith is brought up let's say September 1st, and is brought up next April 20 something then the Mets get an extra year.

    Well if that's their intention, fine. Its a lost season anyways but commit to something.

    And it doesn't sound like they want to do that from all the rumblings. It sounds like his debut is imminent so why not make the necessary roster move and have him up already?

    was watching the game last night. Saw a lot of first pitch swinging against a pitcher who had something like 80 pitches going into the 8th inning, maybe the 9th.

    That's pretty much the definition of a team mailing it in. And sure, you can get on the players for that. Maybe you can even get on the manager.

    But then I'm thinking, hey, if the organization -- by virtue of the team leaving its best SS and now best first baseman in Las Vegas -- doesnt care whether the team wins, why wouldn't that attitude be transmitted to the players?

    Yeah.

    Obviously, it is very early, but Rosario does not look ready to hit major league pitching at a decent rate yet. He was rated by Keith Law as the number 1 prospect in all of baseball. Clint Frazier looks major league ready. I wonder what the thought was about Clay Bellinger before he came up.

    Yep, team playing demotivated baseball. Players just going through the motions.

    TC lame duck manager more than likely to retire. Has never been offered a contract extension.

    Warthen has become obsolete. I have never seen a Mets team walk so many batters and give up HR's at such an alarming rate and lose composure and confidence on any error or miscue......

    Another 53 games of this crap......

    I wasn't a fan of bringing him up just yet, but your assessment is almost as foolish as your claim that Gordon Beckman is a better player than David Wright.

    This is after 22 PAs. Brilliant!

    Rosario has the skill set but just need to learn the patience

    Without fans there's no Mets.

    If it's very early...why make assumptions.

    .190 after 22 PA as justification to why he wasn't called up sooner. Lol, well I guess now he's hitting .250 and is the best defensive player on the team. Probably should still be in Vegas.
