Drop and Give Me One

The "struggling" Matsui upped his average to .280 with a .333 OBP. Still no power, but he is gaining his confidence slowly and the Mets should be able to see that part of his game follow. As of now, Kaz is on pace to play 141 games with only seventy seven strike outs in 534 at-bats. Last season, he struck out ninety seven times in 460 at-bats. He seems to be improving in that area, and that is a definite good thing. Although I'm not blaming the Mets loss last night on Reyes who's OBP is not at .267, would it kill Willie to drop him to the seventh spot until starts to do things the Mets need him to do? With Matsui heating up, putting him in the 1st spot with either Mienky or Wright batting 2nd should be a viable option. Don't get me wrong. With Reyes on pace to hit 49 doubles, smash 21 homers, and steal 28 bases, I want him in the mix up top. However, these are all grown ups. When Hideki Matsui was struggling in 2004, he was dropped to the seventh spot to gather himself and it turned out to be the best thing for him.

Of course you try and worry about player's confidence, but that is the managers job to make him understand he did not lose his place in the lineup. Make him understand it is his, but they just need him to work on things and to do that, put him in a position in the batting order where is it less magnified. Running a team should be based less on worrying about who's feelings are getting hurt and more on winning all games. Though Reyes ranks 52nd in batting average, Jose ranks 92nd of all qualifying players in OBP out of 101. He is joined by Aaron Miles out of those 101 players to not have at least one walk.

I keep going back to it because it is frustrating. I can live with a guy who gets OBP at a .280 -.300 clip on my team that gives us much as Reyes does all around, but not batting 1st.

  • The Mets doubled the amount hits that the Nationals had and the Mets stranded twenty three runners on base compared to only five by the Nationals. Seo pitched well, but gave up three mistake pitches in allowing three solo homers. He pitched better than his line would indicate and the Mets were not producing when they had chances. It took Met pitchers 109 pitches to complete this game and Nationals pitchers 157 pitches to complete that game. By looking at that stat, who would you think had won 5-1?

  • Cliffy is 4th in the NL in batting average, tied for 3rd in homeruns, tied for 6th in RBIs, and 6th in OPS. Strangely enough, he has yet to actually have an extra base hit besides a homerun.

    Overall, the Mets have three guys in the top thirteen in OBP.

  • First it was Wilson-Phillips last season, and now it's Cameron-Diaz this season. I think it's clear which provokes the gag reflex upon hearing it and which invokes that, uh, special feeling.

  • From Mets.com:

    Benson sharp in rehab: Kris Benson, who's been on the disabled list since Opening Day, pitched Friday night for the first time since Spring Training. The would-have-been No. 3 starter worked three flawless innings in a Class A Florida State League game, pitching for the St. Lucie Mets against Jupiter. Benson, who tore a pectoral muscle in March, struck out four and threw 36 pitches.

  • Yusmeiro Petit was solid last night. He threw 65 pitches, gave up two hits (one homer), one run, walked none, and struck out six in five innings.

  • The Mets lost three straight and turn to Victor Zambrano to stop the skid. You can pencil this win in tonight for the simple fact that VZ is due.

Application: Razor barbed wire is widely used by in military field, prisons, detention houses, government buildings and other national security facilities; it is also used as fence for cottage and society fence, and other private buildings .
