Gotta go with Cogz, another day off that paid off. That was an epic at-bat, fouling off the 96 mph heaters and laying off pitches he would have whiffed on in April. I would cover my eyes when he came up in April, but I gotta hand it to him for his hard work and positive attitude. He's not totally locked in yet, but has improved tremendously.

 

As for the bullpen... (excluding Hensley, Nunez and Sanches)... You are the weakest link.

Coghlan all the way, it was a 7-6 game at the time and the Mets ended up scoring 1 run in the 8th and then 1 in the 9th. They had all the momentum in their favor to come back from 7-0 to make it a 7-6 game. I have no doubt that if that 3 run homer didn't happen... we would've lost.

Cogz is my FOTG easily. Like people above me said, his 3-run HR was the deciding factor.

 

Also, can someone tell me why Cody Ross was charged with an error for that throw? Why couldn't the official scorer ruled that the runner just advanced to 2nd on the throw? I don't get why he had to get an error, especially because it wasn't a bad throw at all.

I asked myself the same question. I believe the reason was becase the runner advanced to second because of the throw.

Thats ridiculous. Cody is being blamed for being an aggressive outfielder there.

well... The reason why the runner advanced wasn't because Cody was being agressive, but because the ball got away from Pauli.

Great series, but the last two games have me really losing more confidence in this bullpen. Nunez has also started to look a bit shaky.

 

 

The main reasons for his small struggles have to be the 5 appearances in the last 6 days(73 Pitches) which is something he really hasn't done throughout his career but the main thing is he didn't blow a save even though he gave up 2 runs in the last 2 outings. I'm pretty sure he's off limits tomorrow and if there's a save opportunity Hensley will probably get the nod to close it out unless Fredi decides to go with closer by committee.

Bottom line is after a well deserved day off, he should be back to shut down mode.

He's pitched a ton and you can't expect him to have an ERA and WHIP both under 0.650 with 2 Ks a night forever.

Nunez has pitched in 3 of the last 4, and 5 of the last 7; it's a shame guys like Leroux made that game close today because it would've been nice to have given Leo the day off.

 

 

This.

 

We are in the middle of what I believe is a 20-day, 20-game stretch. That's phenomenally brutal. The fact that our bullpen has held together this long even is probably a testament to how well our starters have pitched, but they deserve a bit of credit, too.

 

I'm confident that Leo's start hasn't been too fluky, even though he obviously can't maintain a sub-.700 WHIP.

That was a bad error call on Codys throw. The runner clearly advanced to second on the throw home. This bad call did allow Ricky to get lucky and get away with the 3rd run being charged as an unearned run when it should have been earned.

If thats the case, the error should go to Paulino...though I disagree with that too. An outfield assist at the plate is such a difficult play that you can't assume an out in that situation, if the throw is anywhere near catchable, I dont feel an error is reasonable there. To me, an error there would be if the ball completely gets airmailed. When a throw goes up the first base line but the catcher still manages to field it cleanly, is that an error? No, so why in this case when at least Cody made it close at the plate? Again, if anything, Ronny getting an error is a better argument, though again, I wouldnt give him one either.

 

Errors like that might make strong armed outfielders hesitate a few times and that cant be good. I dont think thats the point of errors. Errors are misplayed SURE outs. Whatever happened to "degree of difficulty" here?

Good argument. However, by your reasoning, if Paulino catches that ball cleanly, and the runner decided to go to second then, it would of been a SURE out.

I don't blame that all on Leroux. But whatever. It shows up on his stats.

 

 

Hence the reason why I said "like Leroux." You're just looking for an argument, here.
