The Mets got Javy Baez back in the lineup on Sunday, avoiding a sweep with a much-needed win over the Dodgers. They should get back Francisco Lindor potentially on Tuesday against the Giants to a lineup that needs anyone they can get to give them a spark. It’s the final three games of the “13 games in hell” stretch before the Mets get what they hope to be “15 games in heaven,” when they take on the Marlins and Nationals. Can the return of Baez and Lindor propel the Mets to a miraculous run to the playoffs?
To answer that question and get into everything going on in Mets land, we bring you a new episode of the “Amazin’ But True” podcast with me and former Met Nelson Figueroa, including a chat with SNY’s Joe DeMayo.
Amazin’ But True Podcast with Jake & Figgie:
- MIRACLE RUN?: Mets badly needed that game Sunday. Baez definitely provided a spark. Can he and Lindor turn the Mets’ hopes around? They need to start getting clutch hits with runners in scoring position. They need to beat up on the Nationals and Marlins coming up or their season will be toast.
- PAPA BROWN RESPONDS: My dad leaves a voicemail responding to Figgie’s epic rant on the last episode, saying it’s Steve Cohen’s team and he can tweet whatever he wants, referencing George Steinbrenner. Figgie says those kind of days are long gone and this is a different era. Figgie believes Cohen should have addressed the players privately.
Joe DeMayo Interview:
SNY.tv writer, contributor, Mets Prospective, That’s So Mets co-host
- PROSPECTS: Mets are among the best when it comes to their best prospects in Francisco Alvarez, Brett Baty, Mark Vientos and Ronny Mauricio. After that, there is not much depth. They do not have much pitching at all in the minors. What happened with the Kumar Rocker situation?
- MANAGER: Do the Mets go with another first-time manager after this season to eventually replace Luis Rojas? Joe believes it will be an analytical manager.
