    A reminder that it's a 162 game season. I can't stand Vargas so I get down on him quickly. With his hat off he looks like a guy that would be in a rock band that I wouldn't like. I'm more tolerant of Familia's sucktitude probably due to a half season of dominance a few years back...but patience is wearing thin. I'm sure I've quoted this before, but a great paraphrase from Bobby V that was more about team than player but still applies: you're never as bad as you look when things are going bad or as good as you look when things are going good.

    It will be interesting to see whether they loosen the purse strings. Gio would come cheap. Keuchel or Kimbrel not so much otherwise they'd be playing. For the record, another thing I heard Brodie say the other day was he was sticking with Vargas (for now).

    According to Mickey they are being overly cautious in sending him for the MRI. Could just be general fatigue. I'll hold out hope that's all it is. But playing what if, the team looks good enough to compete this year. Supposedly Gio Gonzalez is about to be cut loose by the Yankees and may be an option to replace Vargas. He'd be a no brainer if DeGrom goes down. But would Brodie push the chips to the middle of the table and bring Keuchel in? His moves so far have been with an eye toward winning this year. I guess it's either that or move Lugo into the rotation and backfill his spot as a reliever. Kimbrel anyone?

    Caps, Canes, what does it matter? Either way it's lambs to the slaughter.

    Maybe 'cause the night before was bottoms up with the bottle and maybe some more but it really seemed like a good idea And they won't accept the argument that a little more sleep is time well spent

    I was listening to an interview with Van Wagenen on my way home today and with regard to that ledge the best I can do is remind you that there's more to life than baseball. Go take a walk in the park, smell the flowers, feed the ducks, maybe read a good book...because according to VW, McNeil's role this year will continue to be the jack of all trades. On the plus side when the Cubs won the WS in 2016: Kris Bryant started 100 games at 3B, 36 in LF, 12 in RF and 6 at 1B Ben Zobrist started 113 at 2B, 18 in RF, 11 in LF Smaller sample size but closer to home, in 1986: Kevin Mitchell started 26 in LF, 21 in RF, 20 at SS, 6 in CF, 3 at 3B and 1 at 1B My hope is that by the end of the year McNeil has staked his claim to 3B, until then I want him in the lineup as much as possible.

    I was fortunate to miss the Matz debacle this evening. Don't remember the Bobby Jones outing off the top of my head. I was at Shea to witness David Cone's debut as a starter. Pretty bad but nothing like tonight. https://www.nytimes.com/1987/04/28/sports/cone-is-rocked-mets-don-t-help.html

    LOL on the crickets I honestly don't keep up to date on the minor league team and the prospects. I have no idea where Conlon is these days. I think McNeil is solidifying his spot on the Major League roster as our Ben Zobrist type. He'll play a good deal but not have a set position. But how they manage the return of Frazier and then Lowrie will probably cause some agita...especially if they don't play well.
