Gut Reaction: Marlins 6, Mets 5 (9/4/15)

The new-look Mets are supposed to win games like this. Playing against the 56-79 Miami Marlins, these are the “easy” games that many thought would carry the Mets to the playoff promised land.

Word predictably surfaced this week Boras told the Mets to shut down his client at 180 innings, which is 13.2 less than he has now. Why is Boras throwing out a number?

On Ruben Tejada and the Nature of Inside-the-Park Homers

A home run is generally the result of a one-on-one battle between pitcher and hitter. A pitcher throws the ball, the batter hits it, and all the other players are more or less observers as the ball sails out of the park. Weather and park factors play a role in whether the ball leaves the yard. An outfielder might give chase. Then teammates show elation or disgust depending on the...

Jeurys Familia in Context Is Unfair

The Mets closer has a new pitch, and it is fantastic. A 95 mph split-finger fastball is already superlative by name, but when you drill down into the arsenal of Jeurys Familia, it starts to look unique… and unfair. But first we must appreciate the pitch in all its GIF glory. Nasty. I wanted to put this pitch, and Familia’s arsenal, in context, but it’s difficult with relievers...

Scott Boras chooses the nuclear option with Matt Harvey’s innings

Mets people seem to have the idea Boras has influence over the doctors, but Boras said that isn’t so — though he contended his own research does tell him pitchers returning after Tommy John surgery do better long-term with lower innings totals, naming Shaun Marcum and a few others who exceeded previous totals, and later ran into more arm trouble. “These are doctors’ opinions...
