Mets won two of his three matches during the season against the national last weekend in Washington. There are three good and three not so good restaurants from the previous three games …
1) Crime is not a single pony
Mets are no longer waiting for home runs and "hunting" as a hit approach has pushed the last few years by Sandy Alderson and his coaches Dave Hudders and Kevin Long. Instead, manager Mickey Kallaway and new coach Chili Davis worked last spring to make their list focus more on the racers, the ways to resist switching, to make a good contact and to put the ball into play.
Mets scored 11 last weekend victories without doubling. In fact, six of their seven hits were sent to the opposite area on Saturday. Yesterday they used five singles to produce three runs in the eighth inn to tie the game.
More importantly, in both matches this past weekend, the team was struggling in both cases.
and we fight to the very end, "Pete Alonso said, according to Newsday.
2) Brody is right – Mets has a depth Jeff McNeil launches third base on Thursday and left-field on Saturday.He hit Sunday, ending a 4-to-11 series, during which he almost hit the cycle
In his third place at the weekend, JD Davis but he did a lot of great plays on the pitch, and although he was only 2-for-10 in general, one of those hits went into the RBI on Saturday's win.
Keon Broxton (19659004) "Everyone contributes and we feel it will continue to happen"
3) Alonso seems prepared and unbridled
Pete Alonso Pete Alonso looked like a veteran and a first baseball player during his 14 bats. During the first series of leagues in his career, he sprayed three doubles on all levels, scored a run, in three, and went to Miami tonight, struggling with 500.
Apparently he did not hit .500 this season with 162 RBI. And pitchers will eventually adjust to it, at which point he will have to adjust back. However, 6-for-12 is much better than 0-for-12 and he has to give him confidence to build on this performance as we move in April.
"He knows he belongs," Kallaway said on Sunday. "He plays with everything he has."
1) Risky Choosing by Callaway
In the first game of the season, Callaway chose at least two risky paths, in particular pulling Seth Lug ] and Broxton's exchange for Michael Conforto. Luckily, they both did, as they did with Dominique Smith to protect Alonso's place. Patrick Corbin Callaway again chose Davis for McNeil, who was on the bench despite receiving four hits the previous day. Callaway said he was sitting with McNeil because Corbin is a left pitcher.
Fortunately, like the Opening Day, he came out, although Davis again has only one stroke in five bats.
Lugo threw 41 terrains and was unavailable on Sunday. In total, Callaway uses seven different relays in two games last weekend without having to interrupt the game between the games on Sundays and Mondays. Edward Diaz Jeurys Family and were like an uncontrollable praise for Van Wagenen and the belief that any game can to be closed until the seventh inning. However, during the last two matches, the cross allowed six tracks to cross the plaque.
Lugo made a hit and passed two Saturdays on Saturday, during which Family also walked and gave up. Justin Wilson seemed strong Saturday, but then retired from home run Sunday to Trea Turner.
3) Rotation Not Good
Jacob deGrom seemed incredible in the game. But and Zack Wheeler each of them allows four tracks and repeatedly appears to be getting up and running out of trouble. Wheeler and Soundguard, as well as degroum, are more than allowed to have a bad start or two. The point is that while it's fun to imagine, Mets will not get six innings of brilliant climb every night. There will be bumps along the way, as there are every season and in any team, which is probably the reason why Mets takes care of free agent Pitcher Dallas Kuechel .
