And......there's the reality.
I hear you. We have talent. I wish I had more faith in Rojas.Be positive! Castro and May are great bullpen arms! Familia is Familia... Loup was a sneaky good signing!
It's only game 3! Need to batter Nola early today.. POSITIVITY!
I think it's a no brainer to sign him. They're already going to be looking for a CF in a weak OF class next year, finding 2 is going to be really tough. Especially when Conforto is by far the best option available. After him you're looking at older guys like Starling Marte and Andrew McCutchen as the best optionsTopic for discussion: Should the Mets sign Conforto to a big extension?
I have a big love/hate relationship with him. Seems like a great kid, good teammate, sweet swing. Power and average. But do we need him? Or can that money be better spent elsewhere? Is he the next Jay Bruce, Jason Bay type "average" corner outfielder that makes his bacon over a hot few stretches every year?
Yeah, no doubt it was the wrong call. Ref admitted it afterwards; Mets announcers said it instantly. HBP in strike zone = out.Mets steal a win with Comforto getting grazed on his elbow protector in the strike zone with bases loaded in bottom of 9th and bases loaded. Refs blew it big time. It is illogical that getting hit on a called third strike is not called batter interference.
