The Mets season has been pretty interesting thus far. Pitching was suppose to be the strength of the team. Yoenis Cespedes was suppose to playing MVP ball. Michael Conforto was likely to start the season in the minors. Nothing has really worked out for this team.
The pitching staff has been anything but stellar. Noah Syndergaard thought he knew his body, but his body told him different. Matt Harvey has lost his Dark Knight status. Cespedes has been out with leg issues. One bright spot has been Conforto. He has proven that he belongs in the big leagues and is making a case for being the best player in New York.
There has been medical miscommunications, Harvey being suspended, and an over worked bullpen. Then there was Mr. Met giving the middle finger to a fan. To be fair, Mr. Met only has four digits on his hand.
There are some things to look forward to on the horizon. There is some pitching relief coming that can hopefully pitch into the seventh inning. Cespedes returning will make the lineup stronger. Amed Rosario is knocking on the door to his big league call-up. There is still a lot of baseball to play and the Mets have players to make it happen.
Speaking of disasters, let us take a look this next Zistle trade. Another one to the Great White North. This time with Richard. He reached out looking for some 1994 Upper Deck Collector's Choice needs. We struck a deal and sent off our cards.
Unfortunately for me, my cards never made it. It was pretty weird. I received a PWE, but the side of the envelope appeared to be sliced open. Everything was there, except for the cards. Richard's letter with a team bag attached to it was there. The team bag was opened on the non-flap side, but that side was pointed towards the unopened end of the envelope. Could they have slid out during their journey? Could someone have grabbed the cards during their journey across the border?
There would have been just 4 cards and nothing important, so no big deal. I do not think Richard tried to pull a fast one on me. It was just a really weird experience. After all of these trades, this was the first time something didn't show up. Anyway, life moves on.
