Still feel good about this one?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 options
kept score at home while watching Tom Seaver fan the last 10 straight in a complete game, 19k win in 1970. still have the scorecard.Those three innings were special to watch. The only two pitchers I’ve ever watched live that can be that unhittable for stretches like that are 85 Gooden and prime Sox Pedro.
McNeil is always the obvious one when he is struggling because he wears his heart on his sleeve and looks like he wants to hurt himself every time he makes an out.I think the cancellations and facing some really good opposing pitching has made that seem worse. McNeil is the one that's super overdue for me. Other than his tying HR a while back, he hasn't looked good at all.
I'd be lying if I said I didn't feel a little of the same. Really trying to be in love with him knowing how long he'll be here.McNeil is always the obvious one when he is struggling because he wears his heart on his sleeve and looks like he wants to hurt himself every time he makes an out.
I know it's wayyyy early, but for me, watching Lindor sashay up to the plate with a .171 average and without appearing to have a care in the world is a little more annoying. I know pressing doesn't help anyone, but I'd like to see him appear a little more invested after the investment Uncle $teve made in him.
The Lindor sample size is ridiculous and unfair. I keep telling myself that. But there are high expectations when you sign a guy to the third-largest contract in the history of game and that's simply hard for me to deny.Curious if you guys feel the same about Nimmo who smiled through his 0-5 last night. Neither one bothers me and I suspect Lindor will grow on you guys once he has a real sample size of ABs
“You know when you drive down the highway and you see a billboard for the Powerball that says $300 million?” Lindor, the Mets’ gifted shortstop, told reporters on a video conference call on Thursday. “Imagine you getting that right now. You are going to tell me you aren’t going to scream? I am going to scream. I want to scream. I’ve been working for years my whole entire life.”
It's an incredibly small sample size, if he were to go 3/4 tonight he'd raise his batting average 51 points. Can't deny the expectations and he'll have to meet them, if he's still hitting like this in June then I think it'll be warrantedThe Lindor sample size is ridiculous and unfair.

I don't have those same expectations about Nimmo because I have seen a lot more of him and he is not supposed to be one of the best players in the game right now.
