Valdez gave up a ground ball that our "glove first" third baseman misplayed, a ground ball that got through because Mancini was holding the runner, a soft fly ball and another ground ball. When your closer isn't Aroldis Chapman and your IF and catcher defense is questionable these games will happen.

Like I said, it was a group loss. Valdez didn't quite have the movement of his pitches but everything you said matches what I wrote. 3B, 2B and C on this team are below replacement level right now.

Ruiz should have caught the ball, but it was hit real hard. So was the drive by Pillar that was foul by maybe a foot. Smith's hit was legitimate. There weren't many swings and misses.

I don't get the post-game. Did anyone ask Hyde why the OF was medium-deep with one out and a fast guy on third representing the winning run. It's incomprehensible to me. This is supposed to be a ML team, even if it is a real bad ML team.

Yeah Valdez was not responsible for this one. Defense failed big time.

Yes he was.   

Yes he was, you are correct. I watched it again. If the throw had been lower, maybe there’s a chance.

Im still annoyed at Severino, though.

Scott, too.

No way it was not a good throw. Even a perfect throw it would have been really close

The throw was way high. If it had been lower by a couple feet there might have been a chance. But yeah you’re right, it was not as bad as I initially thought.

I must have missed that, did they show the outfield positioning on the broadcast?

I was watching on the Mets' station (blacked out of mlb.tv/MASN). They showed it, I think, three times.

    • We all understand your argument. The quotes I shared were examples of straw man arguments you were attributing to myself or others. 
    • Yea but if you think about it, he probably gets 1-2 rehab starts.  Even if it’s just one, that’s a start and then 4 days off.  So that’s 5 days right there.  He wasn’t going to miss just another 9 days on top of that. Figure he starts working off the mound within a week, then he goes on a rehab assignment in late June/early July, has one or 2 starts and then the AS break is here. Possible he pitches in a game before the break but they could just give him more time and wait until after. Just hope he gets in a few good starts before July 30th and then they can decide whether trading him or not is on the table.
    • Ok that’s a bit of a longer layoff then I expected. I thought Means might sit out for two weeks and not an entire month. Hope this isn’t a prelude to a more serious injury. 
    • Interesting that the Yankees appear to be getting old, while the Giants are very old and collectively putting up great stats. Im curious whats behind the Giants resurgence. 
    • The quotes that you shared from me neither refute my point nor are contradictory. you just said yourself, “the question is how much and whether Pedro hits enough to be worth it” I never specifically mentioned anyone by name and even my direct comment to you was,” Your point SEEMS TO BE THAT IF HE IS HITTING WELL ENOUGH….” Which you just confirmed in your own comment, which is whether Severino hits well enough to be worth his defense, which is exactly the attitude I inferred. The comments that I am referencing claim that Severino’s offense-and Sisco’s as well-was sufficient to compensate for the defense. I always responded the same”no it doesn’t, league-average bedamned.”   I do not think anybody is making those arguments anymore, for which God be praised, but they certainly did.
    • That doesn't sound possible.  The bat sliver hit him in the eye all the way at first base? I need to find some video of that.   Found it, now I realize what you meant to say. https://mlb-cuts-diamond.mlb.com/FORGE/2021/2021-06/19/3444ed34-a9507805-cf61094c-csvm-diamondx64-asset_1280x720_59_4000K.mp4 Hadn't ever seen that happen before.
