Mets Rotation -
I really don't have much to say this Monday morning so I might as well talk about the most disappointing segment of this team this year, the starting rotation.
What once was projected as the all time poo-pah rotation has turned out to be the worst in baseball this season. Injuries have cost us Seth Lugo and Steven Matz, while consistent poor performances by Zack Wheeler, Robert Gsellman, and Matt Harvey have helped to create a 4.89 team ERA (prior to yesterday's game) which ranks them 30th, or dead last, in baseball.
And there is so immediate solution to this other than the above mentioned pitchers doing a better job on the mound. Lugo and Matz aren't due back until the end of the month and there is no one in Las Vegas that is ready to ship out and help here.
No, this is the team that left camp and this is the rotation that was suppose to make us all forget all the great ones in the past.
And don't waste anytime throwing bullpen maintenance into this discussion. You first need your starters to go at least seven innings, holding a lead your bats gave you.
No, we're all going to have to suck it up here and realize this may be the test of your loyalty to a team you love so much. Readership is down on Mack's Mets. Post from the writers are down on Mack's Mets. You know my feelings on this, but I'll hold off and keep my white towel next to me rather than throw it in the ring.
I just hope you can too.
