A Metsian Podcast with Sam, Rich and Mike comes at you LIVE at 9pm ET! We are thrilled on this episode to be welcoming Mets Newsday reporter Tim Healey to the program!
Tim Healey is in his second season covering the Mets for Newsday, and before that he covered the Marlins for the South Florida Sun Sentinel. A Connecticut native and Boston University grad, Tim is a proud New Englander but has taken a liking to living in New York City.
The Reds series wraps up today at noon and we'll recap our thoughts on the up and down 4 game series for the Mets. Jacob deGrom pitched his lights out, seemingly back to form. The offense, however, reverted back to not supporting our ace. Will he ever get the support he deserves?
Our closer Edwin Diaz, albeit in a tie game each time, took his first 2 losses of the year. As much as logic dictates you want your best reliever out there in those situations, they continuously have a tendency to pitch less than stellar. Should managers continue to run their closers out there in tie games?
Meanwhile, our former closer turned 8th inning man Jeurys Familia blew the save on Edwin Diaz's offday and was subsequently placed on the IL with shoulder soreness. Has his issues this year all been injury based or just a case of not handling the transition to his new role?
That plus much, much more! We'll also naturally talk about the players to wear number 24 in Mets history, and briefly the NY NL legacy year of 1924.
So, join us at 9pm ET for the latest edition of A Metsian Podcast!
