Rick Porcello Gets His Tits Lit

Rick Porcello allowed 6 earned runs tonight and didn’t get out of the third inning.

I was told this off-season that Porcello was extremely durable. Is that a good thing? Watching Rick Porcello every fifth day sounds like a nightmare.

No one could have foreseen the injuries to Syndergaard and Stroman, but Porcello as our third starter is bad for business.

Corey Oswalt replaced Porcello out of the bullpen, which adds some intrigue. Who will start for the Mets against Boston Tuesday? Gotta be David Peterson, right? That would require a 40 man move. Erasmo Ramirez?

For now, let’s get back to Oswalt. He gave the Mets 4 innings of “relief” tonight. He gave up 5 earned runs.

Is that a good outing for him? I don’t even know. What I do know is that when Oswalt is on the mound, it’s time to see what’s on Netflix.

Speaking of turning off a game in progress and looking for a movie to watch, Paul Sewald came out to pitch the seventh inning.

Maybe Chris Flexen can throw us a bone and recruit these guys to play in Korea.

The Met offense is still nonexistent. I’m not too worried about that, though. This lineup is good and deep. They’ll start clicking eventually.

This pitching staff is incomplete at best. The pitching depth is laughable. The bullpen is littered with question marks. That’s the problem.

Michael Wacha gets the start tomorrow. He wasn’t the worst qualified pitcher in baseball last season. Rick Porcello takes those honors. Wacha was not good though. Not even close.

Well, what can you do? Say a prayer.

Injuries have pushed Wacha into the rotation. Maybe he’ll step up.

As stated previously, this lineup is deep and will be a lot of fun once they get going. But, my God. There has to be some sort of internal discussions going on regarding this pitching situation.

Again, there aren’t many teams who can sustain the losses of Syndergaard and Stroman.

Brodie has to hear the clock ticking, though. Steve Cohen is coming, and Rick Porcello didn’t even look close to competitive tonight. If Wacha can’t bounce back in a HUGE way, we are in huge trouble. That’s not even considering the fact we don’t have a fifth starter right now.

Do the Mets make a trade? Does Seth Lugo join the rotation, even though he’s one of the only reliable relief options we have?

Hurry back, Marcus Stroman!

But, back to tonight. The Braves destroyed the Mets 14-1. Bad game all around. And we haven’t started talking about the defense yet. Yikes.

See you tomorrow.
