At this point I would almost rather have Delgado hitting 7th.
I wouldn't mind either.....Castillo is hitting .305 with 5 BB and 4 SB in his last 9 games. The concerns with him have been way overblown. But Church is overall a better hitter and you'd like to see him get more AB. Ideally, I'd like to take a page from Tony LaRussa/Ned Yost and bat Castillo 9th and Church 2nd, but that's too out there for Willie Randolph to consider.
I didn't see the whole game. If Schneider didn't get a hit would Santana have pitched the 8th? I know he was only at about 97 pitches.
I doubt it, was definitely nice to see Duaner come into a slight pressure situation and just dominate. He was throwing 92-93 with sick late movement (Awesome K against Zimmerman looking). Health... just hope he stays healthy.
Yep, one of the most sloppy ball games played in a long time. This was just ugly. Starting from Perez, to Heilman to the defense. Just terrible and garbage. Mets are playing with no sense of urgency, it's just not fun to watch when only 5 guys on the field seem to care about the predicament.
